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

My wife and I stayed in the Residence Inn for a wedding, the hotel was dated, and not as clean as many of the Residence Inns I’ve stayed. We wanted to use the pool our first evening but could not due to a bus load of young children who over whelmed most of the hotel. The first floor was pet... More

Rather nice hotel, updated furniture, convenient location within a few minutes of Penn State campus, quiet locale next to residential neighborhood. Attractive inside and out. Decent hot breakfast. Very clean, spacious, large comfortable beds. The best part, though, was the front desk help. Very friendly, competent and especially helpful on a stressful situation (NOT the hotel's fault). They were GREAT.

Stayed for a weekend of skiing at Tussey Mountain. Used TripAdvisor advice to select top floor away from main street traffic and worked like a charm. Staff even bumped us up to one bedroom, since that was the only unit type left that met the location request. The room was quiet, clean with decent size for three people. Only complaint... More

We stayed on a Friday and Saturday night on Marriott points. Obviously a great value! The room was a studio with plenty of room to stretch out, a great feature given that we were visiting our son, a grad student at Penn St.

We stay here often during football season. The staff is very friendly to all and knows us by name. The suites aren't overly large but more than adequate. Breakfast is nice and varied and the breakfast room is very inviting.
