Although the rooms are dated and need a little freshening up, they were clean. The staff, especially the front desk, were very nice and very helpful. I have stayed here before and would stay at the Nittany Lion Inn again

We had a great stay. Staff were friendly and helpful. Free shuttle into town meant we did not have to take the car out all weekend. Food in the restaurant was good but not hot when it arrived. Service at Whiskers was poor.
