My wife and I love this hotel. From the clean rooms to the great staff, to the free breakfast everything is as it should be when you travel. The location for visiting Penn State is perfect. There are nearby running paths (macadam) just outside the front door with great scenery.

Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Clean, comfortable rooms. Breakfast was poor one day and amazing the next. Go figure! Some Country Inns have fresh oatmeal available. Sadly, not this one. Good coffee though. Hotel was very quiet at night. We heard no hallway noises and slept great. We will definitely return when we need to be in the State College area again.... More

Very warm and inviting atmosphere. Wonderful staff. My room was great. The bed super comfy. I would absolutely stay here on a future trip to State College. Excellent restaurants nearby. Easy to get to airport and major highways. A very welcomed stay after a crazy, hectic business trip

We stayed here for one night while in town to see Billy Joel. This is a great hotel at a good price. The property is pretty new and beautiful. Staff is very friendly. Location is close to Penn State and the mall. Rooms were quiet and clean. You couldn't ask for a nicer hotel. We will stay here again on... More

This hotel is probably the best kept hotel we have stayed in over the years. Our first stay was about a year ago and we decided then that we would make it our first choice from then on. The lobby is bright and well decorated, especially for the holidays. The staff is friendly and helpful, the room was very clean,... More

Having stayed at many places in State College over the years, I highly recommend staying at The Country Inn. I was extremely pleased with the location, although not in downtown State College, the cleanliness of both the hotel and the rooms and helpful, friendly staff.

We stayed here on a football weekend in November 2014. We were surprisingly able to book the hotel the week before the game, presumably because it was over Thanksgiving weekend. After much comparison shopping, we got the best rate directly from the hotel's website, using our AAA membership. It was one of the less expensive options left, unless you count... More

I have never stayed at a Country Inn & Suites before, but chose this one because of positive online reviews. From the moment we checked in until the moment we left, the staff was so friendly and accommodating! My son is a student at Penn State and was having some minor surgery before heading home for Thanksgiving. I let the... More

Excellent location in State College, PA. The hotel is fairly new and the rooms are clean and well maintained. I've stayed here many times and the employees are always very friendly. Good value for the price.
