Hotel was fine. Move-in weekend for PSU kids, so hotel was full. Rate was of course a bit higher than usual for that reason too. Beds ok. AC unit noisy. Spacious room. Bathroom fairly clean. Complimentary breakfast adequate, but held in a very small area for the # of guests that weekend. Could use a bit more parking. We had... More

Very nice, clean rooms, good breakfast, a lot better than the other Quality Inns, a nice selection in a large sunroom area. All new coffee machines etc. This is where we stay when in town on business trips. I recommend staying here. I normally stay at Comfort and Quality Inns, and this is the best one so far.

I have environmental allergies and have many food allergies as well. I was shocked ( a good shocked ) to learn how accomodating this hotel was with my gluten free diet, as well as my chemical sensitivities. All you really have to do is ask. I didn't even think to ask because most places don't think of accomodating people like... More

My son just moved to Penn State University Park for the first time. I had NO idea how fast hotels/motels, etc. get booked, so I looked for reservations just 1 week prior for an overnight stay. Most of the hotels close to campus were booked months in advance AND most rates were at or well over $200! Crazy. I was... More

Wonderful staff including Nicole, breakfast person. Room was great with fridge. No complaints. Restaurant Mario's was very good and just a stairway away. Don't get the lasagna though, way too much cheese. Breakfast terrific and parking safe

It's an older hotel and the carpet in the hallways was stained, but our king room was clean with no stains on carpet and had a chair, ottoman, frig, microwave & coffee. Very little counter space in bathroom, but it was clean with plenty of towels. Bed was comfortable, but pillows were small. We didn't go to the breakfast buffet.... More

The room was spacious and quiet. TV cable service was great. The price was very attractive. After all the good news, I discovered that only one ice machine was functional even though there were ice machines on each floor. I hope the machines get repaired before the last one goes down.

Thank you for your comments. I very pleased to hear that you found your room to be clean and spacious. Fortunately, the lone ice machine remained operational until maintenance was able to repair the other two. This time of year our ice machines get a work out. Thank you for staying with us! I hope we see you again soon. More

Stayed for one night, free breakfast is a nice perk. You will have to drive to campus but it is close. If you don't like pets don't stay here. We were woke up by a dog barking, which didn't bother us but could bother others.

Was this review helpful? Yes
Heidi P, General Manager at Quality Inn, responded to this review

I am so sorry about the dog barking! We ask guests not to leave their pets unattended in the room. The dog was likely jealous that everyone else was enjoying the complimentary breakfast buffet and no one invited him. I hope your stay was otherwise enjoyable. Thank you for staying with us and I hope we see you again soon!... More
