My wife and I are both hard to please when it comes to staying at a hotel. We were both pleasantly surprised by how nice our weekend stay was at Country Inn and Suites. The hotel is fairly new and is in immaculate condition. There is an indoor pool with seating and we enjoyed an evening just sitting by the... More

Very nice hotel with pool, hot tub and small exercise facility. Brand new facility that is of good quality and conveniently located off the highway. Location is a little farther away from downtown State College than others if you are looking for proximity but it's a short drive. Breakfast is about average for a buffet, though the eggs haven't been... More

Quick check-in and easy check-out, clean room, nice flat screen TV & many channels, coffee 24/7 in the lobby & cookies! The Country Inn & Suites is very close to Penn State and is a great place to stay for any event. We didn't have the breakfast this time, but will definitely be back.

Nice, clean and centrally located. Quiet for a good nights sleep. Friendly staff. Good value for the money. Nice amenities. Great for the weary traveler, the harried businessman, or just to get away from it all.

Well, it was a Penn State football weekend, i.e. rooms sold out far in advance everywhere. We were visiting my son (a student) and decided to call around to see if we could get lucky on a room. As expected, no luck anywhere, when, out of the blue, I got a call back on my mobile form Country Inn saying... More

The staff were very friendly. They helped us upgrade our room when we had to bring 2 more family members. We enjoyed the pool & jacuzzi,... More

Overall the experience was very well and I would recommend and stay at this hotel again. The staff was very friendly, the room was clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The view from the room was amazing and it was easy to find.

Once again, we returned for a football weekend. The hotel is always clean and very close to Beaver Stadium, making its location great. At about $260 a night, it is actually a bargain for a football weekend. Upon check in, the hotel has cookies, tea and lemonade all complimentary. They also gave us a small football, water and a snack... More
