The Nittany Lion Inn, State College
Our Preferred Lodging Option at Penn State
My third time staying at Nittany Lion Inn as we prepare to send our son off to school at Penn State. This is an extremely convenient hotel for a campus visit - just park your car and (if you're up for it!) you can walk anywhere on campus on in to State College itself. If you're not up for the walk, the hotel provides a shuttle service - one of the many nice service features the hotel offers. The front desk staff has always been very friendly, understanding, and accommodating, and the rooms we've stayed in have always been very clean and well-appointed. Our preferred lodging option at Penn State!

Perfect location at Penn State
I stayed at NLI the weekend of the Blue-White game. It was a great stay! The room was very clean, and the mattresses were very comfortable. I had enjoyed both dinner and the breakfast buffet while staying here. Both were excellent! I highly recommend a stay at NLI!

Outstanding Property
The property, staff, service, and food are outstanding. The inn is on the edge of the PSU campus; so the location might not be ideal for some.
