... I walked out to the buttes at the Badlands (the spires of rock away from the paths) and hiked 3 and a half miles through a hot canyon. We did an aerial adventure park where my heart pounded and my heart thumped because my safety was in my hands and we walked across a thin wire for 70 feet that scared me half to death. Also, I made in through the night at the Bed and ...
... parks) it felt so unnatural waking up in a GIANT hotel with so many people. So, it was kind of a good break. But as we were running through the floors shoving our wands into paintings and books I thought, "Huh. We're on a road trip?" For dinner we had dads requested Arby's. Basically the rest of the day, like yesterday, was driving. We're still 3 and a half hours from home so we'll get back to our beloved puppy around 11ish. Hopefully. ...
... Have you met any interesting people on your ride? Too many to list here. This is really one of the benefits to motorcycle riding. You meet both riders and non-rider; interesting people and ********; young and old. Met a really interesting guy when we pulled into the parking lot of a closed forest service office north of Boise ID. Owned a construction company in Boise and was there to get a permit to cover firewood. Talked for half an hour and if ...
I pulled out my navigation tools at breakfast which consisted of my iPhone and a map. The iPhone indicated there were 311 miles between me and home if I stuck to the interstate which violates the "don't use the interstate unless it is unavoidable or prudent" rule. But, I knew it was probably close to 350 miles by back road. So I was conflicted as I set out my plan for the day: do I ...
The Plan: Ship my motorcycle and riding equipment to Tigard, OR. From there, ride north along the west coast up to the tip of the Olympic peninsula. Then take a ferry to Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Spend a few days touring the island and then take a ferry over to Vancouver and tour British ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Days Inn State College
I stayed at the hotel because it was mandated by a tournament we were at Pen State for. After my second night there I woke up with a some bites on my body but did not immediatley attribute it to bed bugs. The following day I awoke with numerous bites on my neck and chest area. When I told the maid service, she did not seem surprised and said she would put it in her report. I packed up and checked out telling the front desk and showing the person waiting on me the bites on my neck. Her reply was to take off the refrigerator rental from my bill. I have spent more than that going to the Doctor and filling the prescription he gave me! I know this can happen anywhere but I also feel the hotel lacked customer service in dealing with the situation!
Gives the full state college experience
I stayed in this hotel for artsfest 2004. I am going back up to Penn State for 2006 and I am sorry to say that we couldn't commandeer a room. Even though, if you are an alumni going back up to have a good time and experience old college life again, this should be your number one choice. All I can say is that the location is perfectly designed for whatever you want to be a part of while you are in town.
I stayed at the Days Inn in mid June of 2006 and had an enjoyable experience. Being from State College it is always nice to go home even if I do have to stay in a hotel. LOL.
Just spent two nights at the Day's Inn in State College to attend a conference at the hotel. Check in was quick. Nice front desk staff. Free parking under and next to the hotel.
What a dump!
I booked this room because of the reviews on this site and boy was I mad when I got there. This place is a dump! My room had not been renovated since the 70's (Yellow sinks!) The bed was unbearable. The towels were paperthin. I have stayed in much better quality, cheaper hotels. Yuk!! I would never stay there again. There are plenty of other good choices in State College---especially the Motel 6
We stayed here a few years ago, and were surprised at how nice the hotel seemed for a Days Inn. First of all, we arrived late, but the staff was very nice and did not charge us (or give our room to someone else) for arriving after 6. The indoor pool/fitness center was among the best that I have ever seen in hotels, and I was surprised to find that there was actually a lifeguard on duty whenever we went to use to pool! The room was nicely decorated although the shower in the bathroom was not the strongest, probably a new water-saver one. The breakfast was a good deal, although it took the server a long time to get my apple juice, which I have a feeling was old, and that it had been quite some time since anyone asked for apple juice. The Penn State area has many nice hotels, such as the Sleep Inn and Toftrees Resort. I would also recommend this great hotel to anyone staying in the area, as it is not your typical Days Inn!
Have stayed many times
We have stayed at the Days Inn State College many times. The staff is always patient and helpful, even on those BUSY football weekends.
Occasional special needs are met with efficiency. The location cannot be beat. It is within walking distance of the campus and downtown shopping and a stadium bus is available nearby for those who choose not to drive to the football stadium. We can stay for days without taking the car out of the covered garage available to guests.
Convenient and reasonable
The most conveniently located hotel in State College. And cheap, as long as it's an off-weekend. The hotel is clean, has a pool, gym, and a great restaurant/bar, Mad Mex. The only thing missing is an in-room refrigerator. Staff is helpful -- even helped us track down a corkscrew.
This was a days inn? I thought I was at the Hilton
This was a fantastic hotel. We drove into town (in the off season) at 730 pm and the desk staff was friendly and attentive, albeit a little flightly. It was a beautiful lobby, room, pool, etc. I was SO impressed I had to write a review! Stayed there 6/30 for $80.00. The town closes up by 8 pm during the summer so don't dawdle!
If you enjoy good service, I'd look elsewhere. I waited 30mins on the phone to make a reservation. I'd stay here only as a last resort.
