We'll Be Back
Very pleased . Safe , quiet neighborhood . A bit dated but clean and pleasant . Loved that the continental breakfast was brought right to our room . It was a very cold morning and hot coffee and bagels were waiting for us when we got up . It is delivered to a locked pass through from outside . We just opened the door from the inside and our requests were there . Would definitely stay there again .

Never again October 2019
Very disappointing considering the price. Needs remodeling and thorough cleaning. Ceiling in bathroom was peeling and the furniture was all dirty and stained. Beds were very uncomfortable, the mattress sunk into the middle. Afraid to use a/c because it needed cleaned.

Not top of the but VERY nice for the price, stayed there on business. Perks that made me stay there were the bottle shop on site and the awesome restaurant next door. Parked for the night and was able to relax!

Live life on the edge!
It was just what we expected in terms of the room. It was a budget motel. We enjoyed the room, the staff and the service. The liquor store/lobby might be off-putting to some, but not us!! Adventure is what travel is all about!

Disappointed and overrated in Happy Valley
Nittany Budget Motel in State College Pa. review from July 1 through July 3rd 2019: Ratings of 8.2 I stayed at a lot of places in my journeys and I decided to stay here to try to save some money. I’ve been back to State College a lot over the years, Bellefonte being my home and I always stayed at pretty decent hotels. Well that ended today July 1st. Do you ever get that sinking feeling that you f***ked up the minute you walked in to register? To be honest, it is unique in its own silly way. The office sells........wait for! Most of it if not all of it is from what I can see is locally brewed. I’ll have to take a closer look. Now this is where things kinda went sour. She was a young girl and very nice and accommodating, but let’s just say she wasn’t trying to hide the scars of her past. When I booked this, my instincts told me I should bring both comforters which I was about to donate and had in my car anyway. The other unique thing was that they had a continental breakfast which was served through a secure metal enclosure in the wall by the door. You fill out a small form of what you want and the time you want it. We’ll see. The room for the most part was clean, but really needs a makeover. I’m looking at an old 32” Samsung(no hd by the way) flat screen at this moment with the sun shining on it and I didn’t know you could make a tv look dirtier then when you first cleaned it. It took me all of 2 mins. To clean it. The bed was horrible as was the pillows.
