This property is clean and well kept. It is an older hotel so do not expect fancy finishings but it is a great value. The premises are quiet and there is a lot of greenspace and nearby walking trails. The beds were comfortable and it is very easy to unload your luggage into the room. A great plus if you are traveling with dogs or kids.

Great experience! Will come back!

Pros: I liked the delivery system for breakfast and staff was very welcoming and friendly. Loved proximity to Penn State campus!
Cons: Had no problems with stay, so I don't have any comments on improvement.
Location: Close to Penn State which has a lot of things to do from football games to other sporting events. There's also a lot of brewerys and wineries to visit
The Nittany Budget Motel is a very quaint place to stay in State College. After having a reservation at another hotel in State College, I cancelled the reservation to stay at this hotel based on the great pricing and positive reviews. When I was checking-in the front office staff was very friendly and very helpful. Once my mom and I got to the room we loved how spacious it was as we brought our dog with us so we had a lot of room. The room was very clean and the room service staff was very friendly and helped us out if we needed anything. Another bonus about the hotel was the way breakfast is delivered. I like how there was a little nook where they place your breakfast in and you can access it from your room. As a new graduate student at Penn State it is the perfect distance from campus and very quiet. Overall our experience was excellent and already planning to go back in a few months. I would recommend this hotel to stay if you want a nice but reasonable place to stay. Thanks again to the amazing staff on a wonderful stay in State College.

2 night stay

The room was as clean as it could be for the most part. Definitely a budget motel. I usually stay in brand name hotels but decided to try a budget motel. Bed squeaked anytime you tried to move and the wi fi connection was non existent to barely there. Neither my tablet or phone connected half the time. My room was not directly behind but very close to the office of a single story building. Place needs updated in general. As far as a place to sleep if you don't mind budget. This may be the place for you. Just not for me.

Inconsistent staff

Pros: Clean large room
Cons: Customer service that is consistent
Location: A little out of the way. We were visiting family nearby.
Due to illness we wanted to cancel the second night. One staff member stated it was no problem to do so. The room was handicap accessible so there was no bathtub. We asked for a room change and were told by the manager that because we wanted another room (the motel was not busy) he wouldn't refund the second night. He stated we would need to contact Travelocity to dispute.

Little Motel - great price & stay!

Pros: It was QUIET. People were friendly at the desk. Oh, the price and their little beer shop, which had other beverages & snacks.
Cons: The only think I could think of for an improvement would be new carpeting and bleaching out the grout on the floor.
Location: Just outside of State College proper . You don't have far to go to get back into the downtown or Nittany Mall (less than 7-8 miles to mall).
This little motel is just outside of State College on Route 26. It was not a penthouse, but it was clean, comfortable, had wi-fi, a cute little breakfast system and was under $60 during a non-football weekend. If you like things simple, you'll like this. It's not that far from the middle of State College proper and right up the road from a Waffle House and next door to a classy restaurant. I'm going back. Oh, did I mention they have a little beer distributor on site? Quite a selection, plus other beverages and snacks. However, they are BOOKED SOLID when Penn State Football is playing home - regulars who sign contracts for 2 nights stays at crazy prices!! :o)

Great price Great people

Pros: The rates were great and the staff was friendly, the room was clean
Location: This motel is located minutes from downtown, alot of off the wall restaraunts, and shops music in the streets.
I booked this motel by mistake, not being familiar with the area I thought it was enroute to a place we were going. It was beyond where we needed to be, but glad I booked it. The room was clean and the staff very friendly. loved the breakfast delivery nook in the wall. I would stay again. Never visited State college before what a great area.
