visited this hotel in Aug 2014 for the Open House at Penn State. Stayed here just over night with 2 rooms - Queens 1 Bedroom. There is nothing special about this hotel, comfortable room, however The bed was super springy and saggy. Air conditioner worked great. The breakfast was just ok, very little seating though, get down early. Not bad... More

The hotel is great. It's very clean and well kept. As a long term stay, the breakfasts included are good (eggs, meat, oatmeal, cereal, fruit, breads). Dinners are lighter but nice to have also. I am a light sleeper, and the noise of traffic outside is distracting. The hotel is at the intersection of 3 roads going uphill. Traffic is... More

I have been staying at this hotel since the fall of 2013 on a long-term project here in State College. As an experienced traveler, I would have been out of here like a shot if I had issues with the property. Frankly, the property is spotless, albeit in need of a renovation. What keeps me here is the phenomenal staff.... More

This Residence Inn did not meet all the expectations I have come to expect from a Residence Inn. Our room was comfortable and quiet but the housekeeping was a little less than what I normally find at a Residence Inn. The tile floor in the bathroom had a greasy film on it. You could actually see my shoe prints on... More

This hotel was our location for the last night of our stay on a 2,500 mile trek. It was the perfect end to our vacation.

I did not stay here but members of the wedding party I attended did. The staff at the hotel was fabulous and bent over backwards to accommodate a rehearsal dinner. I cannot say enough about the quality of the staff.

We really appreciated "pet friendly", although reservations told us it would cost us $75. per stay (VS per night), no one mentioned the cost at check in. The room is clean, I like the fridge, as we are traveling with produce. But it as pretty and upscale as most Marriotts are.

None of he hotels in State College are worth a hoot. All are about the same except for the Nittany Lion Inn and the Penn State Conference Center. However, all of them are priced like they are the NLI and the PSCC. The Residence Inn has nice rooms but not the bathrooms...bad arrangement and 1980's fixtures. Breakfast the first morning... More
