Easy access to almost anything, food, gas, school and they allow pets so what else can you ask for? The staff is hit and miss, sometimes you get a good night staff but often times you get somebody who has no clue at all, so a bit frustrating, the breakfast spread are always good. Highly recommended. We have been coming... More

We make a couple of trips to State College each year to see our son. We have never stayed at this property before. This is a nice, spacious place to stay, convenient to Route 322, one of the main drags into town, but not walking distance to downtown. Very friendly staff. Only one issue we noted: request a room on... More

This is an excellent hotel for, but keep in mind its a Residence Inn not the Ritz Carlton. I've been living in the Residence Inn for four weeks and it has been a great experience.

We stay often at the Residence Inn when visiting Penn State. My prior review on Trip Advisor was positive, but I feel the need to update due top our recent experiences. We have our preferences set for 3rd floor and a suite as this is needed for our family. In December this was not accommodated, but we figured, ok, not... More

Spent the weekend here in early January while visiting Penn State. First problem came at check-in where the room type we reserved was not available, but instead of telling us, we were just given another room. When calling to inquire the issue with our room, we were told it was given away - later to learn several long-term residents did... More

Stayed here for the Nebraska weekend. Enjoyed our stay. Lots of little bonuses like a PSU souvenier in our room when we got there. Plenty of local newspapers and there were snacks in the evening and a nice breakfast (only used it Sunday). Now this may have been set up extra special for the football weekend--I cannot comment on what... More

New bar has been set for Residence Inn's. I stay approx. 165 nights a year, and always prefer a Residence Inn type of hotel when I can get one. This one set a new standard for me.

Was looking for a suite type hotel away from the school/downtown area for some business meetings with a co-worker. Great location, easily accessed, clean and well kept. You have to drive to get to most restaurants in the area but that's not a big deal
