This is what I expect from Marriott, and then some. When I first came in the hotel I was greeted by VERY friendly employees. As a matter of fact, every time you passed near the front desk they could not help you enough. The room was clean. Clean enough I actually felt like I could take off my shoes. The... More

I typically stay at Marriott or Hilton chain hotels for business and personal travel. This location has a nice lobby area and great hotel staff but the rooms aren't comfortable and need renovation. During several stays, items placed in room refrigerators were ruined because of malfunctioning refrigerator thermostats. The beds and linens were lacking in comfort and warmth. During my... More

This felt like a bait and switch. The pictures were great, leading me to believe that the hotel was renovated overall. Definitely not the case, the rooms at this hotel are TIRED. The sofabed was awful and should be thrown out. We had them bring a roll away bed that was better, but not good. The staff apologized and sent... More

Overall, this is a pretty average hotel. Some of the highlights are the little bistro area in the lobby, free wi-fi, and the pool/hot tub area. But the hotel is beginning to show some age. The room was arranged a little unconventionally and we noticed that the furniture didn't really match or seem coordinated. we also felt the room could've... More

I stayed here for a few nights and overall it was a good experience. I liked the Bistro area they have, very modern and smart. The hotel was not too busy when I was there so the whole thing worked ok but it's not a big area and with a couple of groups all trying to get breakfast at the... More

The front desk staff was great, but that was the only good thing about this place. The rooms was dated, the balcony door was dirty and broken, the two double beds were soft....and cheapened the room because there was plenty of space for two queen beds. Very disappointed.

This is the 2nd time we've stayed at this Courtyard. It is located near Boalsburg. We had a good experience with all the friendly staff. They went out of their way to speak to us. It's near all kinds of food, grocery, & a CVS across the street. We would stay here again.

Clean rooms, friendly service, you can’t ask for more. The electronic lock on my room door malfunctioned but the desk clerk had it repaired in 10 minutes, faster than I could sit down in the lobby. I would stay here again.
