Excellent customer service. When booking room they helped us choose our room by providing answers to questions and there is a room map located on their website. Chose one of the rear facing rooms. Breakfast is brought to your room each morning via a locked pass through. Under $6.00 per night per pet. Room seemed to be recently freshened up,...

When visiting our daughter at Penn State, we stay here when our preferred Hotel is sold out, or when it is a super high priced night. It is very comfortable for its cost. It is often less than half price for a football weekend etc. I like parking in front of the room.

Room was clean and comfortable, and very reasonable. We loved the unique breakfast delivery! We enjoyed the wide range of cable tv channels, especially TCM. If we ever travel to State College again, we will definitely stay here.

Clean and comfortable. Great location. Modern and well equipped (tiny kitchenette, fridge, microwave). Nice big tv. Friendly staff. Fun way to get your free continental breakfast, via "nook" where your order arrives right in your room. Great price. Easy to adjust room temperature. Beds are not new but comfortable and clean. Loved it!!!

The Nittany Budget Motel is a great value option in the Penn State / State College area. Yes, the rooms are older "motel"-style, but they are kept very clean. The staff here is excellent...very friendly and helpful, and a pleasure to work with! The breakfast food delivery is also a neat touch that gives an added benefit to the place....
