    Nope, I'm not there; I live in Western MA. But my in-laws now live in State College, and we are looking to find places to stay when visiting them. They are elderly and not in good health, and live in a continuing care community where we can't stay with them. Anyone know of an inexpensive, not gross-chain-hotel place, something friendly and affordable? Or anyone want company?!

    It's a very long and disheartening drive for us, and it would be so much nicer if we had somewhere nice to stay when we got there instead of the miserable, corporate and yukky Best Western. Thanks in advance for your ideas.

    Eh, can't really help you out, as I would never check into a hotel 20 minutes away from home, lol. But, I wish you luck, and, welcome to our area. [​IMG] I know that there are a lot of historical places to rent, but, well, they'd probably cost a fortune. Your best bet would probably be to find a bed & breakfast a little further east (maybe 20 minutes east of State College). It would be a little further drive to anywhere, but you wouldn't worry about college students.

    Thanks, both of you. I will make sure to post this again at some higher-use hour of the day, and see if anyone has ideas. We'd be thrilled to stay on anybody's farm, for instance.

    love.

    If you live in or near State College, I'm hoping you have an idea or two for us? Thanks, all!
