Verified Reviews of Nittany Budget Motel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"For a budget motel they get five stars"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I am not easily impressed. I like the finer things in life and don’t usually compromise but dog travel changes your priorities. I have to admit I did not have high expectations for one of the least expensive motels I have ever stayed in. I expected Red Roof quality which runs the gamut. This place was clean. Room service was fantastic. The fact that they also give you a complimentary breakfast is outstanding. It is a carafe of coffee and either a bagel or danish. Not fancy but it is delivered to you room every morning. The walls are solid. My neighbors are friends traveling with multiple dogs. One is an avid football fan and has been talking about the games he watched. I have not heard their TV or their dogs. Next door is an incredible restaurant called Gigi’s. I was able to walk across the lot and in the door. That was where all the money I saved went. They are pricey but worth every penny. This place is also walking distance to a Unimart with a Dunkin Donuts and Mexican restaurant. My only complaint are the beds and pillows. The bed is very firm and the pillows are flatter than pancakes. For the price though it is what it is. Firm is better than soft and lumpy. Oh. There is also a bottle shop and snack store in the hotel. Also very convenient. Would I stay again? Yes.
