very clean and nicely located. Don't have all the bell and whistle but for the price you can really beat it. Fairly modern feel and the hotel in general is clean. Staff is professional. The only down side is the room that I was in has the handicap equipment for the bathroom which makes the bathroom appear to be older... More

I spent 2 weeknights here to visit my daughter, the hotel is a quick drive to campus and near restaurants. It was reasonably priced, but of course it wasnt a football weekend. It was nicer than I expected, bed was very comfortable and free breakfast was decent. The ceiling heater in the bathroom didnt work but the bathroom was large... More

Very pleasantly surprised. Great find. Very friendly staff. Very clean. Some nice welcoming touches such as cookies upon arrival, some soft pretzel snacks in the break room and free bottled water on gameday. Breakfast was average: coffee/juice, muffins/bagels/toast, oatmeal/cold cereal, waffle iron, yogurt, hard boiled eggs/industrial-like pre-formed scrambled eggs, sausage, fresh apple/orange/banana-all very plentiful in supply. Good location for PSU.... More

I would recommend this hotel to everyone. It is in a great location not to close but not to far from downtown State College and the stadium. But, the real reason I would recommend this hotel is the staff. My sister was having back surgery in State College in September and ended up not being able to have the surgery... More

After our third two week stay at The Quality Inn, State College, PA we are again pleased to recommend this hotel with "quality" at an extremely high level in all areas of hospitality and services. The rooms are spotlessly clean and when reporting a minor maintenance problem it was corrected almost immediately. Heidi, the hotel's manager, can usually be seen... More

I am always skeptical when I book a low rate hotel, but took a chance since I read many positive reviews. Dead on. Great value, clean, self-controlled comfy room temp, pillow top mattresses for a great sleep, quiet, friendly staff. Everything I want in a short-term stay when I want just a good place to spend a night. Location allows... More

I was very pleased with the way the accomodating staff dealt with me and my dog, and our needs. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone with a pet heading to the State College, PA area. I do believe there's a 2 pet limit though. They also provide a very nice, tasty continental breakfast. Overall success.

We stayed here during homecoming weekend this year, and commented more than once that we would return in future trips. While it is technically walkable to "downtown", it is far enough to really require a car or bus transportation. We used the bus and a taxi for our needs, and were fine. The breakfast could use ready-made oatmeal as an... More

Stayed at Quality inn this past weekend. I was a little nervous since this was my first time traveling with my 4 month old puppy but the hotel could not have been more accommodating. All the staff including the maids and front desk all made a point to pet her and make a fuss. They even have milkbones wrapped up... More

This hotel is wonderful! The people who work here are a large part of the reason why it is great place to stay. Friendly, excellent service. Breakfast is world's better than any other hotel that offers free breakfast. The rooms are large and very clean. Not far from the main campus of Penn State University. For football games, homecoming, parents... More
