I took a temporary job in Pennsylvania, 2,600 miles from home. I ended up in Milroy at the Best Western Nittany Inn. I have stayed there from December 8, 2018 until now, March 24, 2019, and counting... As such, I got to know the place and the people that worked there pretty well. I was on a first name basis with many of them, particularly the desk person Kelly and housekeeper Toni. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. I felt well taken care of there. They accommodated my requests and the manager "Blue" even asked my opinion about their breakfast offerings, and made some changes based upon my inputs.
The accommodations are about what you'd expect at this price point. I wasn't looking for a 5-star hotel, because I was living off of my per diem, but I was comfortable and never had even the slightest concern for safety or my personal belongings. The rooms come equipped with TV, mini fridge, micro wave oven, WiFi, and even a hairdryer. Also, there is nice work table with a reading lamp, where I did much of my work. There are laundry facilities, an exercise room, and a seasonal swimming pool. While I was there, they were updating the furniture in many of the rooms and in the lobby.
There are not many restaurants nearby: Smitty's Sports Bar (associated with the hotel), Subway, Arby's, Dairy Queen, OIP, Londonderry's restaurant and pub, all within walking distance. The "big" city of Lewistown is 7 miles away and has more options.
Milroy is a quaint little place where you often hear the hoofbeats of Amish carriages going by. I would not hesitate to stay there again. less
