Arrived and was informed at the front desk that they were having trouble with their water heater, so they couldn't guarantee we'd have hot water for showers. We assumed all area hotels were booked because of a college event, so decided to give it a try. They didn't offer to discount our stay, by the way, because of the water... More

This is a solid 2 star hotel. It was clean and comfortable enough, well located and the management was responsive to a small problem with my door. I chose it because it was $35 cheaper than the place 2.5 miles down the road. Money well saved. I did not have breakfast but opted to have brunch at Perkins next door.

We were here for a two night stay due to family weekend at the university. All other hotels were booked solid. Its a budget hotel and its very apparent. The room was okay but NO hot water to shower in the morning and no idea when it would be fixed. The television had no sound.

We stayed at this hotel in April. We arrived earlier than expected and they let us have the room. The Manager called a cab for us and she even looked for coupons for shopping. The room was comfortable and the breakfast was good (french toast, bagels, danish, etc.). There was a coffee maker, refrigerator and microwave in the room.

Booked at the last minute when a room became available during "Family Weekend" at Bucknell. While the check in and out were easy, and the room had its promised two double beds, very little else worked. No lamp was able to be turned on, so we relied on the overhead. Neither hairdryer worked.

It was okay. We were 2 friends going to see our kids' games at bucknell. It was okay enough for us but our wives would not have been thrilled.
