Excellent facility with and extremely convenient shuttle service that services Penn State University. Shuttle was easy to schedule and very timely when pickup was needed. The breakfast was very good and the staff worked hard to accommodate the guests at a very busy time.

Lovely well-appointed hotel; the restaurant is full-service - much nicer than the usual breakfast areas at other hotels - and the hotel and dining staff were friendly, polite and helpful. Highly recommend this hotel.
