I stayed here this past weekend, and it was terrific. There was great guest service and the room I stayed in was comfy and clean. I will definitely be coming back! I went to the game, and I came back to the hotel and ate in the restaurant. The food was terrific, and the staff was really nice and helpful.

It is an beautiful property with wonderful service! The bedding was very plush. The location was perfect for visiting on campus or in town. The food in the restaurant was delicious! We also did Mother's Day brunch there and it was amazing!

Great location! It was a short walk to campus town and some great restaurants. The room was clean, pleasant and a great value for our weekday night stay. Wi-Fi did not work on arrival but was soon repaired, and the front desk staff was great.

Stayed at the Atherton hotel primarily for its location and was pleasantly surprised by its wonderful staff and how nice and comfortable the rooms were. Check-in as well as check-out were handled very courteously and took no time at all. I would recommend this hotel when visiting State college
