  • Enjoyed our stay

    by odessamom on 2019-03-22 03:12 pm

    This inn is beautiful! Loved all the colonial touches. Beautiful carpeting, beautiful furnishings, gorgeous chandelier, they had a pianist playing two days we were there, just breathtaking to see with lots of cozy seating nooks located on every floor.
    We had a King Standard room, which was quite spacious and comfortable. Heat and A/C both worked well and quickly controlled the temperature in our room. Great Wi-Fi and cell phone reception in our room and in the attached restaurants. Lots of charging ports in the room for phones and laptops. Bed was very comfortable, extra feather pillows were in the closet, but we always just bring our own pillows.
    The only cons for us were no exhaust fan in the bathroom for shower steam and the paper thin walls. The first day I jumped out of my skin because I heard a man talking right behind me in the bathroom---I thought he was in the shower...nope. He was either in the hall or next door. I would have sworn he was in the same room as me! But we luckily had quiet neighbors because it never disturbed our sleep.
    Location to Penn State campus is the reason we stayed there and it's perfect for that! Inn is right on the edge of campus, so we could walk all over campus and not have to move our car. We parked in the two rows in front of the inn, but they told us that overflow parking was available in the parking garage next door in an area exclusive for the inn.
    Overall, we loved our stay here and would definitely stay here again. Also loved dining in both restaurants that are located in the inn and enjoyed the Penn State gift shop on the first level as well.

  • Friendly Location

    by PEdinburgh on 2019-03-17 05:43 am

    Recently stayed at the Nittany Inn as son has been accepted at Penn State . Great location for the school and doesn't own and even for pizza deliveries when you are tired out. Super friendly staff, booked a double room great size and beds comfortable. The hotel is super clean. The breakfast buffet looked nice but we went for eggs benedict, a little tasteless. The biggest issue was the coffee both drip and latte was pretty gruesome, a small point in an otherwise great visit.

    Thank you ever so much for choosing to stay with us at the Inn. I truly appreciate all of your comments as we like to hear all about our guests experiences with us. I am really glad to hear you got a good nights sleep in a very clean room as those two items are certainly paramount in any overnight stay in a hotel. I am however sorry that you were not a fan of our coffee. This, as I am sure you can imagine is a tough one, we regularly receive very good comments about our coffee but certainly too understand that every ones tastes are different. Many congratulations to your son we all feel that he will make the decision to come spend the next 4 years in Happy Valley.

  • Service the way it should be.

    I recently stayed at the Nittany Lion Inn for a conference. EVERYONE I interacted with from the Inn were friendly, smiling and courteous. The hotel was spotless and very inviting. I found the Inn to be an excellent value. I highly recommend it.

    Thank you so very much for your "high" recommendation! I am always so pleased to hear when our guests truly enjoy their experience here at the Inn and honored when they are so moved to post such kind words. Thank you so very much.

  • The Inn has gone downhill

    by Jennie K on 2019-02-22 05:22 am

    I'm afraid the NL Inn has gone downhill. While the staff were friendly and helpful the room was disappointing. There was dirt on the wall near the floor next to the bathtub. There were holes in the sheets and the coffee maker did not work. Whiskers Bar served huge portions of food and we left much to waste. It would be better if they served smaller portions and charged less. We won't be returning to the Inn or to Whiskers.

    Owner Response
    Jennie K, Please accept my sincerest apologies for what seems to have not been a stellar stay. I can assure you that I am equally dismayed with this and have personally addressed these concerns. I do hope that you will give us another opportunity to serve your needs here in State College as this is a highly unusual experience as you might be able to see by others posts here on TripAdvisor. Again, my sincerest apologies,
