We recently had an overnight stay at the Quality Inn State College after a week long trip around central Pennsylvania which started and ended in State College. Our first hotel experience in State College had been ordinary so I was hoping for a better experience at the Quality Inn. The hotel was easy to find and was well situated to... More

Stayed one Friday night whilst in town. Had a first floor room on the hotel's backside. Quiet atmosphere with decent soundproofing so I slept well. The check in was fast performed by a friendly attendant. Plenty of lighted parking. The place is on the main drag so easy to find and within minutes of eating and shopping. Bagels in the... More

Very clean, great customer service, and great place to stay if you are traveling with your pet. Love the coffee, and the staff was wonderful. Will return soon. The location was perfect, close enough to the campus. Plenty of restaurants in the area. Had supper at Eat'n Park - delicious salad bar.

After a horrible few hours at another State College motel, I called up the Quality Inn to see if they had a room for me and my dog. They told me that they did so I checked right in. No problem. Staff was extremely friendly and competent. I didn't even need to bring in my dog crate. The gave me... More

We needed a place to lay our heads for one night, and also needed a pet friendly hotel. This hotel fit our needs perfectly. Clean, nice size room, close to a side door to take the dog out and dog walking areas with bags. The person who checked us in wasn't the friendliest I have ever met, but no problems.... More

I came to State College for a concert. By the time I got around to booking a room, most of the local hotels were full. I got one of the last available rooms at the Quality Inn. The hotel was clean, well maintained, and pleasant. The location (right on North Atherton Street) was convenient to Penn State's campus. We were... More

We stayed here for one night when we were in town for a concert. As always, I booked as an "express deal" on Priceline, so I didn't know what I was getting 'til after I booked but knew the star level. With all the great reviews on TA, I had high hopes...but I was let down in a few areas.... More

The people there are simply the best anywhere. Nicole, Linda and the day manager, did not get her name, were so kind, lovely people to talk with. They deserve a raise for their quality care of all visitors. I will go back there for sure any time I stay in State College!!

We were able to check in an hour earlier. The room was clean and not outdated. The breakfast was good and staff nice. They also have newspapers in the lobby free of charge. I saw dog biscuits in the lobby for pets, which I thought was nice. I would definitely stay here again in the future!
