Options in State College aren't great, but the Penn Stater is by far the best of the bunch. Rooms are clean and more than acceptable for a family weekend in State College. Staff is kind and prompt. The gratis football game shuttle is much appreciated.

We had a very good experience at the Penn Stater. I traveled with a group of 10 other PSU Alumni for a reunion weekend, and we reserved 3 rooms. Jeanne at the front desk was very helpful throughout our stay, and she arranged for rooms to be near each other. Since we had so many people, we had planned to... More

Staffed partly by students, the Penn Stater is a large hotel with conference facilities suitable for small-to-medium events. For our group, this was the perfect size. It has all you need (restaurants, meeting rooms of various sizes), but its location close to State College makes it a good place for an event. State College, as a large college town, has... More

This was may second visit to the Penn Stater for a conference. They offer prompt check in and check out. Professional and helpful staff. The fireplace in the lobby is a great touch. The rooms are clean and the beds sleep great. Dinning is available onsite. Conference and meeting facilities are very good. This is a great place to visit.

I stayed here a week whilst taking a week long course in the hotel through Penn State. The food at breakfast and lunch was fabulous, lots of choice. The room was ok and clean. I had a great view of the mountains and overall just pleasant stay. I traveled on afternoon to Breville 30 mins away to see the Amish... More

I spent two nights at the Penn Stater Conference Center in April 2015. Everything was top notch- the check in process was efficient; the room large and sparkling clean; the conference facilities comfortable; and every staff member I encountered friendly. The conference food is definitely a highlight, much better than standard hotel fare, with amazing snacks at breaks. We ate... More

We spent an evening at this hotel while attending a weekend event. The room and hotel were clean and room service was good. Front desk was ok. I found the hotel to be a little louder than I care for into the evening.

My daughter and I stayed for one night to do a college tour. I loved the room, it was much bigger than I expected. The shuttle service was great, they will drop you off and pick you up anywhere on campus or downtown, which is convenient because parking is scarce. The shuttle drivers were super friendly, prompt & helpful. We... More

We checked in for the weekend with another couple to visit our daughter at Penn State and to attend a Penn State football game. The desk staff was very friendly and helpful and the hotel lobby was decked out in true Penn State form! The hotel provides free shuttle service to the game which is a nice benefit! They have...
