Quite honestly, this hotel was much nicer than I thought it would be; especially for the price. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was pretty good. The room was really good; especially the mattress. My room was very clean. It was surprising to say the least. I was really expecting a pretty "ho hum" experience while biting my lip because it was somewhat cruddy; this wasn't the case at all; my hats off to them. I would definitely stay there again and we usually stay in Fairmonts, Ritz and Park Hyatt's. So, they get 4 out of 5 for surprising me to the good. Congrats.

The staff went above and beyond for us. The front desk clerk helped us find dinner that was amazing, the maid called the elevator for us because she saw our hands were full, and the barista helped me find a quiet place with power to take a conference call and get work done. Amazing.

Nice clean comfortable room, nicely appointed, good amenities . Friendly helpful staff, good location to downtown.

Great hotel for a weekend stay in Happy Valley. Great breakfast, clean pool, and very nice staff. I'd definitely stay there again.

The staff was very friendly but I felt it was over priced. Very clean

The room with the jacuzzi is the right call when booking.

I went up for work and it was great. Great location and very pleasant. I would recommend it to anyone.

I had a fine time. Zippy was very helpful and a delight to deal with.

the hotel was conveniently located. the staff was courteous and friendly. the room was clean, comfortable and had all the amenities that you would need (mini fridge, coffee maker, ironing board) the hotel had free coffee in the lobby (24 hrs), they had a great dinette for breakfast, hot snacks, wine and beer, a small store, an indoor pool, hot tub and exercise room. This is a great place! Much more than expected

Went down for New Years and the staff was busy but still very helpful. The price was very reasonable and the room was exactly what we needed.

The hotel is a 5 minute drive from the Penn State campus, but was easy to get to. Rooms were spotless, and very quiet. Beds were extremely comfortable. Large screen TV was nice. Nothing to complain about.

Check in was fine, I used a debit card for incidentals, and they hold $40.00 to "make sure the card works," when most others charge $1.00. I know they hold the $40.00 for incidental charges, but why not just tell me that, not lie and tell me they do it "to make sure the card works." The bed is uncomfortable, my back still hurts 4 days later. The room has no microwave and no refrigerator in it. Also, the coffee maker is on the bathroom sink..why? And even if I did make coffee, there is no milk or sugar in the room, and even if there was milk, theres no refrigerator to keep it in. The water bottle on the desk in the room with a sign on it that says Ill be charged $3.00 if I drink it is tacky. I checked out early Sunday morning because I couldnt sleep, and I had to wake up the front desk employee..isnt he supposed to be watching the door? I will not be returning to this hotel.

This hotel was very clean, quiet and in a great location with a couple of restraunts nearby (Ruby Tuesday's, Perkins and a steak house which i cannot remember the name of)
