This hotel is about 2 miles from PennState campus, on north Atherton Street. Being an alumnus that was a plus for me, and also that the hotel is pet friendly in every sense of the word - they even have a Fido shower!. We got a room facing the back and it had the ambiance of being next to a... More

I've stayed at this motel before and never been disappointed. It all starts with the friendly staff, like Nicole who may check you in or provide directions or simply smile. They provide doggie biscuits (no they're no peanuts) or towels (rags) for your bike to clear off the morning dew or a bug splattered windshield. Their breakfast includes all you... More

We stayed at this hotel for many years, for football weekends. NOT any more. They, like the rest of the State College, PA hotels, have become money hungry and greedy by charging outrageous prices for rooms. While still at the "lower end" of the price scale, this hotel still wanted over $700 for the Army game, over $900 for the... More

Wonderful staff and comfortable rooms. Complimentary breakfast. Each room had a small refrigerator. My husband made an error in our reservations. Yet, the reception desk gladly found us another room for a weekend stay.

We stayed here 1 night while our daughter was visiting Penn State and were pleased worth the location and overall stay. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful, room was big enough for 3 adults, breakfast area was clean and well stocked.

I have had the opportunity to stay at this QI several times over the past few years. There is a cluster of dog shows in nearby Centre Hall, PA, every July; Quality Inn Penn State is the *best* place to stay for this event!

We've stayed at this hotel quite a bit recently and I have to say our most recent trip was disappointing. The room smelled a little funky upon entering, but we turned on the air hoping it was just stale and would clear up. Returning from dinner the smell was still there. Since the hotel is pet friendly, I can only... More

We have stayed here several times since our daughter started at Penn State last year. The hotel is close to the university and town. The staff are always super friendly. The breakfast is very good, and a great way to start the day. This time we attended the Arts festival and they were kind enough to let us check into... More

General Manager Heidi Pischke straightened out a mixup with the reservations and urged us to use TripAdvisor next time. Only two of three rooms were reserved, but she assured me (the first to arrive) it would not be a problem...and it wasn't. Proximity to the town and the campus made it easy to enjoy the Central PA Festival of the... More

We visited for the Arts Festival and found the Quality Inn to be very satisfactory and conveniently located. We could scoot back and forth between the hotel and parking near the BJC without bothering with downtown traffic - a real bonus! A hot breakfast was included, as well as free WIFI.
