Nice, friendly, convenient
The Atherton is the most convenient place to stay in State College. It is clean, well-kept and the staff is nice. Also a convenient bar for post-football games!

Pretty decor, but the beds and pillows left a lot to be desired. I woke up feeling stiff and sore.

Very short stay so difficult to form positive or negative opinion, hence the 3 rating for most.

Downtown hotel at PSU
This hotel is at a great location close to Rec Hall. The decoration is nice but somewhat dated. The parking spots are very narrow, something you would typically experience in a big city . The staff was professional and friendly. I have major concerns about the rooms' cleanliness though. The first room (325) had dirty sheets full of dark hair. The window shades and the window behind them had months' worth of dust. After we complained, they gave us a different room which was better but I was no longer able to fully relax. I would be hesitant to stay at this hotel again. It has great potential but, at minimum, the cleaning crew needs to be retrained. Changing the carpet would help too.

Great location, nice hotel.
Great location on Penn State campus, caught a hockey game on Friday night and a lacrosse game Saturday afternoon with some fun on campus at night, all within walking distance.
