This is a nice hotel. Every employee we were in contact with was friendly and helpful. The room was large and spacious. We ordered food in and the front desk was great with suggestions. Breakfast was good. A little better than the norm of just cereal and fruit. Eggs that actually taste like eggs. The only down fall i have... More

From check in to check out, staff were wonderful. Reached late, realized forgot basic amenities. Staff provided basics to get us covered (toothbrushes, paste, razors etc.). Rooms are spacious with additional sofa beds, kitchennete, full size 'fridge etc. Ideal if spending a couple of days and have the ability to use a kitchen. no more than 5 mins to "downtown"... 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.

I stay at this hotel on a fairly regular basis she I'm in State College. The location is convenient to town and campus. The staff is friendly. The breakfast is average, but typical of what you get at a Residence Inn. And hey, it is free... I haven't used their workout facilities or pool, but it looks OK. Nothing special,... More

I've stayed at this Residence Inn several times, and it is always just fine. Good location, clean rooms, basic amenities, fairly quiet (except for road noise). I would recommend it, but watch out for spiking room costs. Some days are reasonable and some can spike through the roof (and not just football weekends). But overall, I return often because it...

A stay here simply proved why I like the Marriott brand. Smiles on the way in, smiles from all during my stay, and a smile on my way out at the end of the stay. My room was clean, the breakfast was tasty, although I would put bacon on the list as not everyone wants sausage every other day. The... More

This hotel was fairly close to all of the activities at PSU. The hotel is clean and was roomy for 3 guests (all adult). The breakfast in the morning looked and smelled good but we had plans elsewhere so we just grabbed tea. Other reviewers were bothered by traffic but I never heard it. I'd stay here again.
