A very clean and quiet hotel. Surprisingly well looked after. Your family will be happy if you select this hotel. The rates was also ideal. Will stay here again during the next trip. Close to Walmart, McDonald's;other stores and Penn State University.

Normally, i don't have "very good" and "Quality Inn" in the same sentence; however, this one really does stand out. I had to opportunity to visit State College (not associated with football weekends) for personal reasons. This was really a very nice Quality Inn. They have a very nice, responsive, management. The hotel is kept up very nicely and it... More

Overall very nice place. All personnel are very nice. I have stayed here before and will again while on business. My only complaint; was given an accessible bathroom. It was very clean, but needs paint attention. It had paint peeling on the ceiling and the one wall.

My husband and I with our dog stopped over night to visit with our granddaughters at Penn State on our way to Boston. Our room was clean and very nice, the staff was friendly and helpful. We will stop again with our little dog, on our next trip. Thank you

We recently returned from our second visit to the Quality Inn in State College. We were there for two weeks also in January and the hotel and staff did not disappoint. The Manager, Heidi, is extremely personable and even invited us to a gathering at her house one evening. The breakfast room attendant, Nicole, even remembered that my wife liked... More

The bed was comfortable. The room clean. The breakfast was very good as good as you could get out. They could have had one gluten free cereal but the other choices were sufficient. The staff was also very friendly. Great place to stay.

Enjoyed our stay in State College, PA....not too far from Penn State. It's a great little college town, very clean with many places to eat that are reasonably priced. The Quality Inn in State College provided good value and a place for us to hang our hats after visiting Fallingwater, the famous Frank Lloyd house. The hotel was clean and... More

There aren't a lot of great options driving east on I-80 late into the night, and after a less than favorable experience at another chain, we were hesitant about trying an unknown motel. The rating here on Trip Advisor were a true guide and exactly on point....Quality Inn delivered of everything we needed: courteous, friendly staff; clean rooms; comfortable beds;... More
