Price great, compared to area hotels. Sheetz 24/7 convenience store across street. Wendy's nearby, walking distance. Fridge, microwave, coffee maker in room. Clean room, small, but adequate. I will stay again on future visits (my daughter attends college nearby).
Surrounding area not great. Checkin late night and you deal with the hotel clerk behind thick glass at a small security window, instead of entering the lobby. Coincidentall, the Wendy's dining room is closed after 10pm, but the drive-thru is open. I certainly appreciate the employee safety and security aspect in both instances, but it strongly indicates that the area is high crime. Indeed, at the nearby Sheetz, there were two Sheriff's cars; it looked as if they were dealing with a derelict. I had no issues myself, but I would hesitate staying here if I were a woman travelled alone.
Bed was far to hard to sleep on, Fridge kept me awake I had to turn it off. When the heat came on it sounded like an airplane motor. Décor was from the 1970's, Carpet was stained, furniture was full of holes, shower did not work properly, could not adjust the spray. Light switch at the door would not come on. Room on the second floor, no elevator.
