I have been staying at the Quality Inn in State College for well over 6 years. With all the hotel options in town, I continue to go back to QI for their great value and the incredible staff, especially Cinnamon and Nicole. It really has become my home away from home when I am in State College for business or... More

Friendly staff. Clean hotel. Not brand new, but fairly recent renovation. Everything in the room worked. Did not smell any smoke. HVAC was excellent. Not the annoying window units, but central HVAC. Typical continental breakfast fare wise, but cleanest and most organized with an excellent concerned and helpful attendant. Hotel is about as close to Penn State campus as you... More

I was stranded in State College and this hotel made the whole experience a pleasure instead of a gruesome experience. The staff are courteous, friendly, and very helpful---made me feel at home---especially Nicole and Nina. Wonderful people, great conversation, excellent location, teriffic price---I really could not ask for more! Many thanks!

I would stay again. I didn't feel disgusted. It was clean. The carpets were filthy.. but kept my flip flops on. I normally look at how clean a place is. They do need to be refurbished. Because the carpets in hall. Elevator and rooms are nasty. But all on all a good stay. .

I find the Quality Inn State College, PA to be a fair price for the hotel. Clean place at a fair rate and breakfast every morning. More importantly the staff makes me feel like I’m at a home away from home. Always remember me when I check in (as I have stayed here often) and always make me feel like... More

We were lucky enough to find a room on short notice during the week before Penn State move-in day. The Quality Inn here in State College is definitely a cut above the economy hotels we have stayed at recently. The room was spacious and clean, and the furnishings and decor were pleasant. The wifi was free and reception was strong.... More

For the past few years I have been using the Quality Inn on N. Atherton Ave., State College for various business travels to the area. The front desk staff is always pleasant and helpful. The room is clean and and food at breakfast is always hot and plentiful. Will continue to stay here for future trips.

When we arrived at the hotel we were early. We were greeted by funny and gracious people. We were checked in very quickly. After being out and about and then returning to our room it was apparent the air conditioner wasn't working properly. I call set an incredibly fast chain of action into motion. Not only did the personnel find... More
