Drive around the downtown and historic area to get a feel for this college town with lots of interesting shops and eateries and check out Penn State. We did for a Billy Joel concert...it was great!

nothing special

The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful but the actual hotel room was nothing to write home about. It was clean but had a strange odor. Maybe a hint of cigarette smoke. My sleep was not so good on the uncomfortable bed.

Quick overnight

Overall satisfactory; good enough for one night, had all the normal amenities. For the price, I did expect a little more for breakfast -- after perusing the choices, I went outside the hotel for breakfast. While I gave all the features mentioned above average the overall rating was less as the hotel could use some updating. The room did have a little cooktop and fridge and had I know this I would have brought my own breakfast items ( or bought them). Given this, as an overnight lodging where I'm going to be out of the room most of the time, I'd probably stay again.

This hotel isn't worth the price

Stayed here since this was only avaikable room in state college. We are no smokers, room smelled of smokers. It was just cheap all. Around. Hotel is old and needs refreshing. Won't stay here again.

Penn State Digs

My daughter was invited to meet with some PSU faculty and perform with a school musical choir and on the following day to sit in on several classes. I was looking for a basic "flop house" but not a "hole". The accommodations were excellent for the price. Clean, free breakfast, friendly and attentive staff. 2 miles from the campus right off the main road to the campus. I would stay here again and recommend.

Average stay in below average hotel

Location and staff were OK. Parking was good, however, bed mattress were well worn, soft and lumpy and the bathroom was extremely small.

good experience

We stayed at the Super 8 on Atherton, as we needed a dog-friendly hotel. The staff was great, the free breakfast was very good, and there were plenty of places to walk the dog. It is also convenient to shopping and to campus.
