The Worst Online Reviews For Penn State Landmarks

Even with the hundreds of thousands of Penn State supporters out there, there will always be a few Debbie Downers who need to vent their frustrations online. More often than not, Internet rants about places with otherwise excellent reviews turn out to be more hilarious than influential. We went to Google and Yelp to find the worst reviews of some of the most cherished locations at Penn State, and it turns out not everyone cherishes them so much.

Beaver Stadium


Even our beloved Beaver Stadium has some haters.


Maybe that’s because it is the greatest thing ever, Terry.


Google translated this to “yuck stage.” Ouch.


There’s always one!

Pattee/Paterno Library


And that’s surely worth a one-star rating.


You hit the nail on the head, Kathleen. Sucky hours at Pattee Library is exactly why we have a drinking problem.

The Nittany Lion Shrine


You still gave it four stars, so we’ll take it. Maybe you changed your mind when it was finally your turn to enjoy the symbol of our pride and honor.

Bryce Jordan Center


Water? In a cup? Lame indeed.


I’m sorry to hear that, Christopher, even if you can’t.


Kathleen, you could surely make a killing writing bad reviews for Penn State landmarks.

The Nittany Lion Inn



You might want to justify this two-star rating with an example worse than misfitted sheets.


Short, sweet, and to the point.


Or did you mean “pathetic and smelly?”



Pro Tip: You don’t have to book a room at the Inn to enjoy the apples.


This might be my favorite review yet. I’m not sure if it’s because a cockroach fell from the air vent or because it’s a haiku.


You can’t make this stuff up, folks.
