Great for the price!

We need a place to stay for one night that was close to town and kid-friendly. Rodeway was in a great location and best of all the front desk manager was very nice, not just to us, but most importantly to our kids, If you are nice to our kids you win our hearts and Rodeway did. The room had a refrigerator, a microwave and we were served a small but warm and tasty complimentary breakfast, all things which made our stay comfortable.

Nah. Don't

The room was average at best. The smell in the room that of old sweat. The beds were actually nice. The restrooms were not cleaned properly the entire 6 days I stayed there which is surprising because the bathroom was the size of a closet (literally!). The shower was about the size of my body and there was no hot water at 4a.m. Very sad! I wish I would have made a different choice and I recommend anyone else to do so.

OK for the Money

For the most part the room was clean and OK for the money. The location was good relative to where I wanted to be. The picture on the web site, however, does not adequately represent this motel. The picture provided is basically the office. The motel proper is actually an old style type motel with two levels and room access from outside rather than from inside a building. Since I was just looking for a bed for the night while passing through, this place served it's purpose. All in all I got what I paid for based on today's typical motel prices.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Although the hotel offers breakfast it's pretty meager. There is a great breakfast place, The Original Waffle House" (not the chain Waffle House) located less than 1/2 mile from the hotel.

Fair room for the low price

We only stayed 1 night during Thon to visit my daughter. The room was outdated a bit, but clean. We did hear a lot of noise from above room. Over all it was a descent room for the low price. We were pleased it had a nice tv & fridge & microwave in the room.

LAX weekend at Penn State

This hotel is clean, but provides the bare minimum for the price. We could have stayed elsewhere for a little more money (like $10!) and gotten a lot more. Several people from our group stayed at nearby hotels and paid only a little bit more and theirs were far superior to ours. It is clean, it is cheap, but that's about it.

Air conditioner is too noisy

Everything in the hotel is perfect except that the air-conditioner is a bit noisy.

Disappointed Traveler

After reading other reviews decided that all we needed was a room for one night and this would do. Sorry I gave it a try. The room looked like it has been recently painted and updated which was good but the carpet did not reach entirely to the walls leaving gaps, and the air-conditioner which was needed in July was so noisy that we got absolutely no sleep. Since all we expected out of this stay was a good night sleep that was a fail. Also, the man in the office for both check in and check out was the most rude person I have encountered at a hotel. He totally ignored me when I asked him a simple question and even ignored me the next morning when I returned the key and said thank you. No acknowledgement at all.

Spartan, but fills the need

This is a nice little hotel in State College that always has a decent price and the bare essentials when you just need a place to land. The bathrooms are incredibly small and the beds aren't that comfy, but all the right parts are there for a place to land.
