Clean and simple chain hotel. Comfy beds. Pleasant staff. Good size rooms with separate sitting/office area. Decor bland but inoffensive. Best feature was amazing breakfast selection. Coffee, cookies and lemonade available all day. Although only a mile from start of state college still not walkable as busy road and no sidewalks. Looks like there is a bus stop just up... More

We stayed here for 4thFest and my family came away impressed. The hotel was very clean and the staff were extremely friendly. A very comfy hotel overall...We had a great view of the fireworks from the hotel parking lot which allowed us to skip out on all of the traffic. Unfortunately, we were told the hotel shuttle doesn't run on... More

We stayed here a few years back, but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Country Inn. The hotel was brand new at the time, and the rooms were immaculately clean appealing. The staff was very courteous and were of great assistance during check in. It was a football weekend, and we thought the staff would be a bit overwhelmed, but... More

Stayed here on July 4th. Rooms were clean and quiet. The pool and hot tub were open until midnight which was nice, and the free breakfast was great with lots of options. There are books to borrow and cookies available to guests.The rooms are nice, but the beds are only good for people who like a very firm mattress. Shower... More

The hotel was fine. Easy check in, clean room, good breakfast and easy check out. But I thought $161.00 on a Saturday night for a hotel in State College was a bit pricey. Kudos on the breakfast. The room was very crowded but the food was plentiful.

We stayed for two nights. The check-in was flawless. There were some tasty cookies at the front desk to welcome guests--always a nice touch! The bed was comfortable, the bathroom had an extra-large shower, there was free wi-fi that required no set-up, and there was a good selection of television channels. Overall the room was just big enough for our... More

I just stayed here this past weekend as part of a wedding in town, and everything was excellent. I was given a complimentary upgrade upon checkin, and the front desk clerk called up to my room after I was settled in to make sure that everything was good. They also have a great breakfast and free Wifi as well, which... More

I just returned from New Student Orientation at Penn State, and this was the perfect stay! Just a mile or two away from the campus, this offered all of the amenities that you would need for an over night. (Or two!) I wasn't in my room very long, but while I was there, I was comfortable. I am a Carlson... More

Stayed for two nights - the entire hotel was very well maintained and clean. The staff was very pleasant and helpful with information regarding the area. The location isn't really in walking distance to very much, but I would still definitely stay again!
