We've been staying here for several years while our son is a student and will never stay anywhere else. The 1st time we stayed was pure luck because someone had canceled their reservation on a very busy weekend. The staff was very nice and we were amazed at the quality of the breakfast. I've also brought my sister's for a... More

Very cozy, but elegant small hotel. Having drinks by the fire in the library was especially nice. Rooms are large, comfortable and spotless. Window HVAC units unusually quiet. Didn't try dinner, but breakfast served in the dining room was exceptional! Service personnel were friendly and very helpful. A few quirks: hotel lacks a traditional front desk, you check in/out at... More

My girlfriend and I received a gift certificate from our family for a one night staycation(we are from State College) and dinner at this hotel. Everything was wonderful. The front desk employee at check-in on 3/13/15 ( I'm sorry I didn't get a name ) was very warm and inviting. The entire hotel is beautiful with a wonderful study where... More

This location is out of the way, yet close enough to town to enjoy everything that State College has to offer. There are, I believe, only 20 rooms in the establishment and the staff makes you feel like you are the only guest. Very pleased with the customer service at this inn. Upon arriving at the inn, which was 5... More

On a quick visit to our daughter at Penn State, we opted for the Carnegie since it was not in the mix of the other hotels and it seemed to have good reviews. We were really impressed with he size, comfort and cleanliness of our room overlooking the golf course. We arrived in the midst of a cold snowy day... More

I have been going to visit my daughter at Penn State for 4 years and staying at the Carnegie is just an added treat. The hotel is a beautiful boutique hotel and the staff is beyond pleasant. Rooms are well decorated with very large bathrooms. Breakfast is cooked to order and amazing. My only choice in State College!

We only stayed here very briefly--a quick overnight after a day at the airport and a flight cancellation that kept us one extra night. But the time we were there was fantastic. The rooms were clean, attractive, and lovely. But the thing that really impressed us was the kindness. We arrived quite late (and last minute) because of our flight... More

This is a great property, traditionally decorated with classic and antique pieces. Service is wonderful. Rooms are large with high ceilings and each is uniquely decorated. Big bathrooms, Gilchrist and Soames toiletries and bathrobes. Only about 20 rooms. The included breakfast is delicious and the atmosphere in the dining room is lovely. The location is near the major roads and... More

We found the Carnegie a year ago when a last minute room opened up on an otherwise busy football weekend in State College. We had the opportunity to again visit this past weekend when plans suddenly changed thanks to a snowstorm and we found ourselves needing to plan for a two day weekend. We were again not disappointed.
