Pros: the location is very good if you need to be at Penn State
Cons: The place doesn't really understand the meaning of service. You can see that it is mostly geared to the weekend football crowd, which doesn't expect much from the hotel as they are geared for the game. The rooms are poorly equipped (how about a cup to wash your mouth?) House cleaning simply forgot me one day and didn't clean the room. On another they did a patchy job (for example forgot to refresh the coffee supply provided with the coffee maker).

Pros: The location is fabulous. It is such a treat to stay downtown. The bed was comfortable.
Cons: The rooms are extremely dated. Our room was musty and the hall smelled. In the middle of the night, the dumpster was emptied in the alley outside our room. It sounded like a bomb.
