I've stayed at the State College Residence Inn dozens of times over the past 8 years, including a 3-month extended stay. Alicia and her staff are friendly, welcoming and always take time to accommodate special requests. The property is undergoing a complete refresh, which is mostly complete. A few of the not-yet-renovated suites are a bit dated, but they are... More

I've stayed here a few times in the past year and the staff is always helpful and pleasant. The rooms are fine, nothing great, but comfortable and clean, although they could use a little updating especially the bathroom fixtures. Water pressure for the shower varies from room to room I have found and in the room I stayed in most... More

Very pleasant staff. The best thing I have to say is the room was clean. Unfortunately the beds in our room were extremely uncomfortable. The queen bed was very unsteady and any movement made the whole bed sway. Our sofa bed was not made up and although we weren't expecting a sofa bed to be very comfortable, this one was... More

Negative Issues: The rooms in this particular property are in need of a major overall. The room smelled of carpet deodorizer. Exactly what smell are they trying to cover up? The carpets are cheap. The bathroom was very dated, especially the sink area. The room was missing a closet door. All of the furniture is very dated, as well, especially... More

The stay began by me getting a thoroughly run down room, despite paying top dollar for the jacuzzi suite. The sofas were so dirty - literally had black stains on them. room number 319. you can check for yourself. look at the arm rests of the sofas. every light bulb was of some other color which is very disorientating at...

As Marriott vacation club owners, we have high expectations...Jose and his team, for the two days we were there, did an excellent job. Stayed in two room suite and I didn't feel anything was "dated". The spider webs on the pool area windows could be cleaned off ;-), but other than that, we would stay again! Penn's cave is a... More

As with most (all) Residence Inns, the State College RI provides comfy accommodations for long term stays in a great, central State College location. We stayed at the RI for just 1 night after a wedding and we were pleasantly surprised with the updated furniture in the rooms. The rooms were spacious and had a nicely sized kitchenette with everything... More
