The hotel is very comfortable and the restaurant services and food is EXCELLENT! I would frequent the restaurant if I lived in the area. The cleaning staff was cheerful and polite when we met them in the hallway. This all adds to the overall welcoming of the hotel. Just an aside, the fact that the duvets on the beds are... More

This hotel is in a great location for access to Penn State. We chose this hotel because of the restaurant, as it was our first trip on a gluten free diet. The GF selections on the menu really made it easy for us, the staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. We would visit the restaurant even if we weren't staying... More

We were looking for a good value and comfortable accommodations during our overnight stay in State College last week. We received an awesome value and the accommodations really were top notch. When we arrived there was a family playing a board game on the floor in the front of the fireplace...just like home. Made me wish we had more time... More

The hotel is very warm and welcoming when you walk in. The staff are helpful, professional and efficient. Rooms are super clean, hotel is quiet and comfy. The fitness facilities get the job done for a hotel gym. We would stay here again when visiting our daughter at Penn St. We hadn't planned on staying a second night and didn't... More

The restaurant staff and menu selection (gluten free) top of the line. You should be extremely pleased with the staff's skills and how they care for the customer, best of the best. Rooms and service pleasing as well. Great location for accessing Penn State.

stopped here while on business. Very good reception, staff friendly and helpful. Room was excellent, nicely decorated. Kuerig in room, microwave, refrigerator. Bed was cozy. Office chair was not comfortable. Paid breakfast was very good, wait staff attentive. Bar closes at 9pm, so drink fast!

This is a very nice hotel located near Penn State University. It has excellent value; accommodating staff. The room was clean and roomy. We plan to stay there again. This is a very convenient location to the University.

Everything about this hotel makes it easy to visit state college. The location is easy to get to and convenient. The staff is always friendly and the rooms are spacious and clean. The prices are also always reasonable. I have stayed here multiple times and have never had a problem with the location.

Terrible service. After the football game, most of the guests left the hotel early in the morning. We told the front desk at 7:30 a.m. We will like to change a room and stay one more night. The front desk told me when the room is ready will call us. 11:59 a.m. I went to front desk. She told us... More

Spent the weekend attending Women's Volleyball games. Hotel is close to Campus and only a very short drive to greater State College area. Room was clean and quiet. Restaurant in the past was fine. Lobby is nice to sit by fireplace and chill out.
