    The exterior and interior of the hotel was cute and staff friendly. However, out of three elevators, only one was working.

    good stay

    Stayed for one night. It was great place. Completely themed on Penn State at University Park. Only one elevator was working (of 3). That was slightly bothersome. Else a great stay

    Parking garage has very small parking spots. Paid for off property to avoid door dings. Only 1 of 3 elevators working. Used the stairwells.

    Restless Stay

    I love this hotel, however, the air conditioning unit was so loud I could not sleep. I had a similar experience (but not as bad) the last time I stayed. I'm really bummed because, otherwise, the hotel is super cute and comfy. But not being able to rest (the whole point of the stay) really killed the vibe.

    This is the place at PSU!

    A charming hotel near Penn State University. Desk staff was friendly, and best part is that the hotel is dog friendly. Room was comfortable, spacious, and clean. Already booked for our next stay.

    very nice location and rooms

    Nice location and great rooms with nice linens and excellently decorated. The wedding downstairs was a bit loud but luckily didn't last super-late. The airconditioning units probably could be updated to be more eco-friendly and efficient/cleaner. Careful, the tub surface is slippery at the height that it is! On a busy weekend, the elevators can take a while, especially with social distancing. wish the pet fee was not included.

    Great hotel with crappy parking

    The hotel was super cute. Our only complaint was how difficult parking was. It was a real nightmare and they didn't offer valet parking either.
