    « Good Stay, in town for business »

    This is the best option for the area compared to the older non renovated hotels in the area. Also the restaurant/bar next door has great food and is 100' from the side door of the hotel. I would come back again.

    « Best Western Nittany Inn - Milroy, PA »

    Was well satisfied with my stay at this hotel. It had been many years since I stayed at a BW hotel. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel. It was in a very lovely locale in the Kishacoquillas Valley about 22 miles south of State College.

    « Central Pennsylvania gem »

    If you can't find a reasonable place in State College or if you are visiting the Amish country in Big Valley, the Best Western is a great choice. As you would expect, it is not lavish, but it is clean, comfortable and the rates are very reasonable. The staff are very accommodating. I had to check out the evening before my scheduled day. Since I didn't use the room the last night, the desk clerk volunteered to see if she could get a refund for me. A few days later, she emailed me to say I would get a 1/2 days refund. I didn't ask for it or expect it, but I was pleasantly surprised. They earned my business for the next time I visit the area.

    « Clean, decent breakfast, great service »

    The service was really great. We left our iPhone charger there and they found it and sent it to us -at no charge! I find so many time we leave something behind and no one ever turns it in. The hotel room was clean as expected. The bar next door was really great!

    « Four nights at Milroy. »

    I was very pleased with the location of the hotel. Very easy to find and there was plenty of parking close to the entrance. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and I was pleased to be able to open the window at night, as I prefer fresh air rather than air conditioning. I plan to return next year.

    « Clean, Convenient, Great Staff »

    I was in the area for a week at the State Fire Academy and I have to say the staff could not have been more helpful. The manager Ms. Summers obviously leads by example. The room was extremely clean including the bathroom and came with both a refrigerator and a microwave. Smitty's made dinner very convenient if I did not want to go far of an evening. Breakfast is extremely basic but healthy - if you are looking for bacon and eggs you will be disappointed. In summary - convenient, comfortable, clean, great staff - It is definitely where I will stay next time I am in town.

    « Plain Jane but very clean »

    Rooms are small and very plain. Beds were comfortable and the linen was crisp and clean. Artwork would be an improvement. There really isn't anything to do in the area, except for parks and it is about 30 minutes to State College. I would have been very happy with the accommodations, but I paid 150% more than rack rate because it was a home football game at PSU.

    « Excellent Location, Remarkably Clean, Helpful Staff »

    I had an early morning appointment in the Milroy area which required an overnight stay. I chose the Best Western and I could not have been happier. This is an ideal location for business travelers. First, the location is excellent and central to any needs or appointments you may have in a 25 mile radius. Second, there is a great restaurant and sports bar next to the hotel and a 24 hour convenient store directly across the street. The hotel staff were incredibly polite and helpful. I needed documents printed out in bulk and they were able to accommodate without any trouble. Finally, this was the cleanest hotel room I have ever stayed in. You can tell the ownership puts effort and detail into making sure each room is ready for an incoming guest. The Best Western Nittany Inn Milroy is an ideal location for anyone traveling in the area. As someone who travels often for business, I wish I had more options like this hotel in other areas of the state.

    « OK for a business trip. »

    I stayed here for three weeks. Breakfast is really minimal. The were often out of fresh fruit. They do have water in bottles available at breakfast, along with milk in a pitcher. The rooms on the South side are somewhat noisy because of the busy truck stop across the street. Nice that they have a washer and dryer- but a bit expensive $3 to wash and dry.

    « Penn State game »

    Very clean, comfy beds, plush towels. Excellent having a refrigerator in the room, too!! Smitty's Bar Restaurant is right next door with very good food. Close to Happy Valley without the cost! Really great breakfast selection, too!! Will definitely be back!

    « Penn State Game »

    This hotel offered the perfect place to stay after attending the PSU vs. Kent State game on Saturday! It was just a short drive from State College which eliminated a long drive home in lots of traffic. Highly recommend!

    « Stop Off to Carlisle »

    Hotel was a stopping point over night on my way to Corvettes at Carlisle. Really pretty drive in that area. The hotel was clean and comfortable, there was a car wash about a mile away and Smitty's Bar and Grill was about 100 steps from my room. All in all a good hotel. There was a pool and gas station/mini mart across the street.

    « Nice, Comfortable stay »

    Beautiful view of the mountains. Had a perfect dinner at Smitty's next door and we ate outside. It is about 25 minutes to Penn State so very convenient. Felt like a bit of a vacation before college drop off

    « Clean & Comfortable »

    Milroy was a layover stop on a 5 day motorcycle trip. Check-In was easy and quick and the room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was also good. We also liked that Smitty's Sports Bar was right out the side door for our dinner choice.

    « Nice weekend »

    We enjoyed our weekend in this BW hotel for 2 nights during a family wedding and festivities. All of our needs were met, and the hotel was very child friendly. The continental breakfast was especially nice with choices to please most preferences and diets. We enjoyed the pool with towels provided by BW.

    « Cozy »

    Friendly and accommodating staff. The place was very clean and cozy. Everyone was so nice. Breakfast was amazing and the lady kept it stocked well. The bar/grill next door is amazing too. There is a Dollar General, Subway and little gift store within walking distance. There is also a gas station across the way.

    « Wonderful Stay »

    My stay was wonderful. I was only staying one night. Late check in was very helpful. Breakfast in the morning was wonderful. Staff from night to morning were extremely nice. Would definitely recommend to others and if needed for future business trips, it will definitely be my first choice.

    « Great people and value »

    We were extemely pleased with this location. People were over the top amazing and friendly. Hotel room was well kept and extremely clean. Amenities were all that you need. Amazing value based on other hotels that i have stayed in. The people really made the difference for us. Amazing team working at this place.

    « Nice and Relaxing Stay »

    After a long day of driving and sightseeing we stayed at BW Nittany Inn. Luckily we had advance reservations as place was sold lout. Unfortunately the room initialy assigned was missed by the house cleaning staff but was recorded as done. Front desk was so apologetic. To me it was no big deal as she called manager and he said to give us a different room (early enough as not everyone was checked in) and immediately called in one of house cleaners - saw her cleaning room within 15 minutes of our arrival. Pool was relaxing but very small. Coffee available 24 hrs which was nice and free newspaper. Also a PC for guest use was in lobby. Me and 2 grandchildren slept very comfortably and didn't hear any noise. Breakfast was fine - consisted of muffins, bagels, waffle maker, 3 types of cereals, juice, coffee - sure there were some other things on counter. Advertised to open at 6:30 but was ready when i went down at 6. Would defintely stay agin when in the area.

    « Great service, great value! »

    The Best Western Nittany Inn is a great place to stay for business in the Lewistown area of Pennsylvania. The hotel is clean and comfortable, and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The restaurant next door has good food great service and a good variety on the menu. The value for both places is excellent.

    « Exceeded expectations »

    We stayed here after a wedding and we AMAZED at the cleanliness of the hotel and the friendliness of the staff. Seth (maybe?) checked us in and gave us a dinner recommendation and a snack recommendation, if we were hungry before Smitty's opened. He even told me when the shift change was, in case I needed anything. The room was absolutely perfect. Two queen beds with four pillows each and ample towels for our family of 5. Staff was very professional. We were politely greeted that night, when we returned after the wedding, by a young woman. We overheard the hotel was completely booked for the night, but we were not bothered by any noise throughout the night. Breakfast was filling (waffles, bagels, muffins, yogurt, cereal). Hidden gem in Milroy, PA!!!!

    « Nice Stay for the Area & Price »

    Clean hotel, friendly helpful staff. Few perks but reasonably priced. Small outdoor pool looked clean but was too cool to use during my early June stay. Serve yourself breakfast was pretty minimal, although did offer waffles, cereal, and juice.

    « Daughter's Wedding »

    We made a hotel room block more than a year prior to our Daughter's wedding. We had reserved both suites in our name for the wedding weekend, however at check-in one suite had been given to someone else not even part of our wedding group. There was no offered compensation or no effort to correct this error on their part. I would not recommend this hotel for your group.

    « Great Value, Great Service »

    I spent a lot of nights in the area on business in 2015 and 2016, The people here took great care of me, and the price of the room was a great value. Smitty's restaurant next door is also features great food and great service for reasonable prices.

    « Great stay. »

    Clean, well maintained, polite, great but simple breakfast. Nice hotel and staff. My only complaint is that they restrict pets to small dogs. My experience as a breeder, pet sitter and dog trainer is that small or large doesn't make a difference. Personally I find large dogs to be more accommodating to such travel situations. They should allow both.

    « Great value - nice rooms »

    This hotel exceeded my expectations. I was in the area on business and needed a place close by that was affordable. The quality of everything was excellent, the staff were professional, and the rooms were clean and updated. I did not get a chance to enjoy the hotel's breakfast but it looked substantial with a good variety. Nothing but good things to say about this hotel.

    « flexibility sucks »

    I wanted to cancel my second night at 7am after the first night stay because my visit ended earlier than expected and was told that i would be charged anyway. So they go to charge somebody else for my room getting paid twice. thanks GM Roxie $$

    « Best coffee ever »

    This hotel is very friendly, clean and overall a very good hotel experience. I've never had a hotel coffee I liked but theirs was great. Continental breakfast more than I expected and everything was fresh and tasty. I would definitely recommend this hotel as the best I've ever stayed at.

    « Excellent accommodations in Milroy, PA »

    This Best Western was conveniently located to Lewistown, Milroy, and Granville towns we visited. Very clean and staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. Free breakfast in the morning was a plus. Would stay here again.

    « One night stay »

    We purchased an RV from Lerch and the location of the hotel was ideal and the comfort and quality and cleanliness was above what we were expecting. Very satisfied with our one night stay. Took advantage of restaurant next door since it was within walking distance and enjoy a very tasty meal. Your employees were extremely nice and helpful.

    « Enjoyable stay. »

    This hotel understands what it means to be a hotel; very nice stay and would recommend this hotel. Warm, nice, friendly hotel and staff. Breakfast was great. Looking forward to staying there again when in the area.

    « My first bad experience »

    I stay at this hotel three times a year, but this recent stay left a bad taste in my mouth. I mentioned a mistake the hotel staff made when I was checking out and the desk clerk got overly defensive and started lecturing me about respect and forgiveness. Then she made it personal, crossing a line she never should have. To top it off, when I checked my credit card account the next day, I was overcharged. Recent changes at this hotel are inconvenient and unnecessary. Sad.

    « 5 Star Hotel »

    No hotel in the surrounding area stacks up in professionalism, cleanliness, updated decor, and the restaurant selection. Can't say enough wonderful things about this hotel. I have stayed in all the surrounding hotels due to business, and this hotel excels over the rest. Should have stayed here from the start!

    « Not terrible, but issues »

    We are here right now. We booked a King room. Arrived and the carpet was soaking wet. No other kings available, so now two Queen beds. Now trying to sleep and the music from Smitty's sports bar is blaring in our room. There is an incredibly inebriated guy outside our window throwing things and puking, with a group of 10+ people watching and taking cell phone videos. The room itself is not terrible, but the entire experience is pretty crappy.

    « Very nice and well kept hotel »

    22DEC15 Very nice and well kept hotel. The ladies up front really seem to enjoy their job. The Hotel was clean and well organized. It's beside Smitty's bar and grill that has some really great food. I'm glad we had two beds in there because we used one for sleeping and the other for...... #NastyNomad

    « Fantastic Hotel »

    The hotel rooms are clean, spacious and very quiet, the beds very comfortable. The hotel staff are professional and attentive. The adjacent restaurant has a good selection of food and beverage and the severs are extremely knowledgeable of specials and the menu.

    « Milroy Hotel »

    Very nice place to stay. Staff is very friendly and the rooms are very clean. If you are heading to a Penn State game this is a great place to sleep. There are places to eat and shop near by as well. Everything was great staying there.

    « Milroy Best Western »

    Clean; friendly and helpful staff. Moderate options for breakfast.Clean rooms. Low shower pressure. Good internet service. Very family-friendly. Microwave and fridge in room is great option. Broken ice machine on the first floor was a little inconvenient. Overall good quality for price paid.

    « The best in Milroy »

    Staff are very friendly in this hotel. They remember you by name though you do not come often. Coffee is all day and good assorted breakfast muffins. I believe that Best Western is the best place to stay in the Milroy Area.

    « BW Nittany Inn Milroy »

    Great value for the hotel, very clean and appears either updated or a newer hotel. Beds were comfortable and hotel staff friendly. Close proximity to Reedsville and State College. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

    « Best Western is the BEST »

    Very friendly and helpful staff, I had to extend my stay and I forgot to get my room card reprogrammed, they quickly and efficiently took care of it! . Super clean rooms and always friendly housekeepers and the adjacent restaurant has great specials, trivia night, pool table.

    « Short drive to Penn State for swim meet! »

    This hotel was really nice...better than I expected! The room was clean, and quiet. Breakfast was basic, but good...waffles, muffins, hard boiled eggs, cereal. It was only about a 20 minute drive to the pool at Penn State, and the price couldn't be beat!! I think we will stay here for future meets!

    « Very Basic »

    Overall fairly clean.Dusty Behind furniture. SO SO breakfast. Ring bell and wait for service check-in. Nice view of the mountains . Decor of the Motel was nice , but nothing fancy. Had 2 queen suite on the first floor. People walking around overhead at night!!!!

    « Great job »

    I enjoyed my stay at this location. The room was clean. I booked two rooms for a family visit in this area and would stay there again. I am looking forward to my return to the Best Western Nittany Inn.

    « Worked Out Fine »

    Fine hotel - nice room and a good bed. Restaurant/bar right next door. Nice staff, but didn't seem too interested when we were checked in. Just gave us our key and that was it (no directions of where to go, ask for help with bags, etc.) Missing lightbulb in one of the three lamps in the room. Overall, fine stay with no real issues.

    « Quite Surprised »

    I normally stay at Hampton-Inn, but this was the only hotel on TripAdvisor in the area that did not scare me. I have to say, this hotel was "Great". Very nice staff, very clean facility, "VERY" clean room....including the "special sanitized TV remote control" ....I have never seen that before in any hotel I have stayed in. I loved that. Very clean bathroom, the bed was beautifully made and again?....It was surprising. Not a bad breakfast area either; small and quaint. I will stay there again.

    « Overpriced »

    Compared to other Best Westerns this was 3 times the rate. For the same room the rate was high and service at check in poor. Breakfast was not up to the standards of many of the other Best Westerns I have stayed in across the country


    Hotel has small comfortable feel to it , rooms were clean. Service was very good. Breakfast is below average. Was disappointed orange juice machine was broke.Good Value for the money. Nice location , within walking distance to restaurant.

    « Went out of my way to get to this hotel and it was really worth it! »

    It is a stones throw from route 322 so easy to find even at night. Very clean, staff helpful, knowledgable. Restaurant was casual but surprizingly good. I got the haddock, broiled. It was cooked to perfection and a huge portion. Refrigerator with freezer and microwave. Everything at breakfast was very fresh.

    « Football Outing »

    Pleasant stay with friendly staff. Clean room at a very reasonable price. Easy access from Rt. 322 to surrounding communities. The local and very professional Mifflin County Airport is 2 miles from the hotel.

    « Nice Hotel for a Reasonable Price - But Some Issues »

    I had to be at Penn State by 9am one morning (driving in from Wilmington, DE), so I wanted to stay at a nearby hotel the night before. None of the hotels in State College, PA were available. This one was on the way and only 30 minutes from Penn State, so I decided to try it. The hotel is small and is not near much of anything except a Dollar General store, a Subway restaurant and a big truck stop. It has two floors. The staff is very friendly, and the hotel is well maintained. I found the room clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The free wifi worked very well, and they offer quite a few channels on the TV. There is a free continental style breakfast each morning (includes waffles also). The room had a fridge and microwave. This would have been a perfect stay except for a few issues that are really beyond the control of the hotel's staff. One is the truck stop nearby. I heard the backup warning beeps, air brakes, clanking noises, engine noises, etc. throughout the night. Also my room was on the first floor near the lobby, so I kept hearing conversations of people hanging around outside even though my window was closed. At 3:30am, there was a woman in a very loud argument with someone outside, and this woke me up and kept me up for a half hour or so. The sound proofing between rooms is not as great as I would like, and I also could hear people walking around upstairs quite a bit. I used an app on my smartphone to generate white noise to block a lot of this out so I could sleep.

    « Great for Penn Staters! »

    Stayed here the night before Freshman "move in" day. The hotel is about 30 minutes from the main campus so it was an easy ride in the morning. The hotel had great Penn State touches such as a large rug in the foyer and great pictures. The front desk staff were courteous and efficient. The buffet breakfast provided had an excellent selection and was of a very good quality. I would definitely stay here again!

    « Great Motel close to State College, PA »

    This was our first time at this motel. We attend a BlueGrass Festival at the Grange Fairgrounds in Centre Hall the middle of July. Previously we stayed at a Best Western a little bit beyond the BGF & drove about 20-25 minutes each way. The rates were a tad high but they were close. This year the price was way out of line. So we began looking at others places. This one is before the BGF grounds & right on the highway we use to get there. It was 17 miles from the motel & 20 minutes. We were really pleased with the room & location. The entire bill at this motel was less than half of what the other one was. And it is the same chain! We will definitely be back to this motel next year.
