I've stayed at the Autoport several times, since I come to State College once or twice a year to visit family. I was shocked to read the several terrible reviews of it here on Tripadvisor. I've always had a good experience. I don't know where the bed bugs are that so many people have mentioned! Those reports filled me with...

My wife and I traveled to THON and were planning to stay with my family 30 minutes away. Once we got to State College we decided maybe it better to find a room for the night. Her parents suggested the Autoport as they had always been happy while staying there. From the outside, it doesn't look like much, but for...

I'll start with the positives: The lounge and outdoor dining area are updated and rather festive looking. The staff is friendly. And, the breakfast special is tasty and a good deal. BUT ... you will never find me staying in this hotel again. The rooms are absolutely disgusting. The bedding was stained and the carpet was dirty. On top of...

I originally had made arrangements for two rooms with two seperate and valid credit cards. The Autoport for some reason found this confusing and cancelled one of the reservations without even calling me. From there it went downhill. I called when I discovered the cancellation and was told I cleared things up and the 2 rooms were now reserved. On...

Stayed here in 2007 when old owner was here & although rooms were not the best, his attitude made up for it. Beautiful flowers, quiet & friendly long term staff.

Wow! This was the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. When we first walked in, the bathroom stunk and the room smelled liked animals. They do allow pets which I didn't realize when booking. The rug was so filthy we wanted to vomit. There was a red substance splattered on one wall and the windows and screens were filthy....

I took a group of guests from a university in the Netherlands to see a bluegrass band gig at the Autoport on 12/4/08. The guests were all PhD students and professors. The waitress we had was very kind and helpful, and needed to see ID for each guest, which is understandable. She didn't understand what to do with driver's licenses...
