    Location to our daughter's campus. Beautiful grounds

  • 10.0

    I had an issue with the air conditioner and they fixed it right away and the gentleman who came was super nice. The parking garage was very close which worked out great.

    The only thing was the exit, people liked to stand right outside the doors so it was hard to get in or out without getting people to move alot. Not sure if the hotel can do anything about this or not.

    As a college counselor, I love finding lodging located on or in close proximity to campus. This is in the heart of Nittany Lion country! Parking is a 20-yard walk away and campus features surround all. The door is always opened for you by doormen, both ways, and, if anything, the Inn is over-staffed with friendly, knowledgeable professionals. Rooms are elegant if traditional, breakfast was perfect. A great place to stay when rooms are available, which wouldn't be in football season!

    The Inn has very traditional themes befitting the university ambience. A few of those themes, translated into room furnishings and decoration, could use an update. But this is a very picky comment on an otherwise wonderful place to stay.

    The beautiful grounds and building. Greeted at the entrance with their undivided attention. Greeted immediately by the person at the check in desk.

  • 7.8

    I liked the open space of the room

    The shower temperature was hard to control, which was uncomfortable for me and my husband but hard with the kids.

  • 9.2

    Bed was comfortable. Inn and service were top notch. Amenities lovely and location excellent for seeing the Penn State Campus all within a pleasant walk from the hotel.

    Noisy air conditioner on and off all night with hissing and clanging. Horrible nights sleep.

    great staff

    couldn't request a late check out until 7:30 am!!!! Too late to plan!

    Shower outdated.

  • 8.2

    Very pleasant accommodations. Our room was clean, and the beds were extremely comfortable. Staff, especially in the restaurants, were very friendly and helpful.

    Parking was a bit tedious since we had to park in the parking garage some distance away. Normally this wouldn't have been such a problem, but it happened to be a particularly rainy weekend, so we got quite wet going back and forth from the hotel to the garage.
