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.

We recently stayed for 2 nights at Courtyard by Marriot. We had a great stay! The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. There was also a balcony and my kids loved it.

We would definitely stay here again! The front desk personnel were always friendly and chatty! Rooms were fine, and they allowed my visiting sister to sleep on the pull-out couch with out an extra fee. No freebie breakfast here, but the foods cooked to order in the bistro were well worth the prices paid. Great variety from yogurt, eggs n... More

Although there was a bit of a glitch at check-in re: a king bed vs. 2 doubles (bring your printed confirmation!) it was more than adequately resolved with a room upgrade at no extra cost. The pool and whirlpool are absolutely lovely and the restaurant is simple yet has delicious food. They even let us purchase the room's blanket which... More

They have redone the lobby so it has the new bistro feel and the food and staff are very good. The rooms are old and need some serious updating and were a bit dirty, shower had mold door has stains on it and the curtains were ripped. Not up to courtyard standards.

Stayed here with a group for a wedding. Appeared clean and tidy, but a bit run down. Opened the heavy room darkening drapes to look out the window and noticed perhaps 20 or so shredded tears in the sheer under curtains. Likely from years of use and the sun weakening the material, but for God's sake spend the $20 or... More

We stay here once a year and my whole family loves it. You know it is good when you keep coming back. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Rooms and public areas are always clean. They have the cleanest hotel pool I have ever experienced.

The hotel staff were very accommodating and friendly. The hotel was clean and the location of the hotel was nice (easy to get into and out). I went there as part of a yearly family trip for New Years and they were able to get all six rooms together and/or connected. The food is good.
