We are the Rothwell family, long-time State College residents who are now the proud owners of The Stevens Motel. You may not know us yet, but if you’ve been to State College any time since 1964, then The Stevens Motel is a familiar sight. For over sixty years, the summer yellow, daisy-clad motel on North Atherton Street has remained an unchanged iconic business and landmark, dutifully cared for and owned by one family – Jeff & Randa Harman. The Harman family went out of their way to provide the most affordable and friendly lodging experience in State College. Now it is our pleasure to build on their legacy while bringing our vision for the future to this Happy Valley icon. Stay tuned late 2023 into 2024 for room renovations. While we aim to keep the soul and retro vibes alive, we are eager to present a more modern experience for our guests.
