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.

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.

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.
