The Sleep Inn in State College Pennsylvania

The Sleep Inn in State College Pennsylvania
Earlier this month my husband and I took a short road trip up to State College in Pennsylvania. If you are familiar with that area, it is home to the University of Penn State. We love that area of the state and hadn't been up for a visit in a few years.

The drive up to State College from Harrisburg Pennsylvania was absolutely beautiful since the Fall foliage was at it's peak! If you want to see some beautiful Fall foliage then take route 322/22 up to State College but be forewarned, during Penn State home football games that route gets pretty congested with traffic.

We spent the night at the Sleep Inn which is located right off the 322 business route in State College on Village Drive. The Sleep Inn is one of the most affordable hotels in the State College area and our reservations were made online, so we really breezed through the hotel check-in process. Check in is 3:00 pm and check out is 11:00 am on the day you will be leaving.

The hotel front desk area and lobby are beautifully decorated and you felt very welcomed when you walked into the hotel via the front doors in the lobby. Our room was on the third floor and right past the front desk to the right are the elevators which took us right up to our room. Every floor has their own ice vending machine (ice is free) and soda machines (you have to pay for those). Every morning there is a free complimentary breakfast downstairs near the lobby. Also in the lobby you will find freshly made hot coffee 24 hours a day which is free.

The hotel uses electronic keys to get into the room which are scrapped after each stay/visitor for security purposes. Our room had 2 double beds, a desk/dresser combo, a large flat panel TV, a place to hang up our clothing, a small personal safe, a night stand between the beds and the lighting in the room was plentiful. We had a complimentary coffee maker in our room with several bags of coffee & coffee condiments along with free toiletries ie. shampoo, lotion and soap.

We felt the bathroom was on the small side and only contained a toilet and a shower. There was no bath tub in the room we stayed in and the sink was in the dressing/vanity area where the coffee maker was housed. The bathroom was extremely clean with no dirt, dust or hair from past guests and that was pleasing to see!

Our beds were very comfortable and we had requested extra pillows before our arrival and they granted that request with each of the beds having 4 fluffy pillows for us. The room is beautifully decorated with a modern and upscale feel to it. We had a great night's sleep and the hotel was very quiet with no disturbances.

The hotel staff that we came into contact with was warm, friendly and very helpful when we had some questions about area attractions. Every time we walked through the front door in the lobby we were greeted with a hello and a smile. That is always very welcoming to see. 

We enjoyed our stay at the Sleep Inn and would not hesitate in staying there again. Matter of fact, we plan on visiting State College Pennsylvania again next Fall and will be making our lodging arrangements with the Sleep Inn. For the really can't beat this place!
