The staff was very welcoming and our room request was honored upon check in. We like a quiet room away from elevator and such. The room was very clean and spacious. The beds were super comfy. The window opens which is wonderful if you like fresh air which we do. The bathroom was spotless and the water pressure in the... More

I am a very, very seasoned traveler spending at least 40 nights each year in a motel or hotel here in the U.S. and abroad. I am going to surprise many folks and take a moment to RAVE about the QUALITY INN in State College, PA. I had the opportunity to stay at the QUALITY INN property in State College... More

I stayed here 1 night while passing through town. It was clean, quiet, safe, and inexpensive. Not very fancy, but everything was exactly as it should be. Breakfast was free -- it wasn't very good, but for free, I can't really complain. I'd much rather have a bad breakfast than a bad room. I would definitely stay here again.

I have stayed at Quality Inn for a long while (around 20 days!) and I am really glad with my choice. My brother who lived in State College for a long time recommended this hotel considering its convenience, quality, and price (around 50 dollars per night). It is on a frequent bus line, has plenty of shops,restaurants and a big... More

This is the first and LAST time I'm ever staying at this hotel. First day I shower, the shower drain was plugged and the water completely covered my feet. I told them, they fixed it (for the most part). Second day I come up and my card doesn't work so I go down and get a new one. Later on... More

I am so sorry you had such a terrible experience. I understand maintenance was immediately sent to room upon receiving your report about the tub. Thank you for reporting it because if we don't know it is broken we can't have it fixed. I do hope you would give our property another chance to provide you with the superior service... More

The Quality Inn Penn State is the perfect place to stay if you need a place for a night or two. I cannot say enough good things about the staff- we had booked online, but accidentally booked a room with two double beds instead of a king. After we got to our room and realized the mistake, we went back... More

First time to a Quality Inn in all of our travels. This hotel was exceptionally clean and well cared for all for the low rate of $59.00! Staff was very friendly both at reception and in the breakfast area. Standard hot breakfast but well done and staff was great. This hotel allows animals and we did see a couple of... More

Came up for a football game, and this hotel had a room available and all things considered, it was not a bad price. Checked in late after spending all day on campus.

The room was fine. Beds were comfortable l, bathroom was brand new. Everything in the bathroom was new (except the shower head). The heating system worked ok, although it has been a long time since I have been in a hotel without a modern control panel. The check in was uneventful, but the person did not have the right information... More
