“Nice Hotel, would stay again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2010

Our family of five stayed overnight at the Comfort Suites, we were visiting Penn State University for an Open House. The hotel was conveniently located to the university. Since we have 3 children, the extra pull out bed was a nice change from the usual cot for one of the children. The room was very spacious and the indoor pool/spa were an added benefit. The Fridays Restaurant which was located right in front of the motel offered a 10% discount when staying at the motel. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was also nice. Would definitely stay again if in the area, would definitely recommend

From check-in time to check-out time everything was just perfect and smooth. Mary Jane was the hotel desk clerk and was such a pleasant and welcoming lady. Very helpful with all needed information. Many choices of restaurants nearby, Walmart, CVS and Rite Aid, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, Red Lobster, Texas Roadhouse, T.G.I. Fridays (you get a 10% off your bill for staying at Comfort Suites), Domino's (they deliver to your room), gas station, liquor stores, you name it, you find it and everyone at the hotel desk had all the information for you printed if you needed. Room was very comfortable and clean and will stay again in my future visits. A+ to Comfort Suites. Did not use the facilities but saw the gym and pool because they are right by the hotel lobby, sitting area was nice and clean and everyone was always very friendly. Ample parking. But you are definitely in the middle of nowhere when going to State College but it's constantly moving of people because Penn State University it's just few blocks away. There's also public transportation if needed. There is also wifi and if you can't get the signal in your room just go to the front desk and ask for the ethernet cable and they will be happy to provide it for you. Coming back soon!

Clean, spacious rooms for a decent price. Location was very good - a TGI Fridays right next door and other restaurants and shopping are a short drive away along Rte 322. You can actually walk to PSU campus through a residential neighborhood (20 minute walk) or it is only a 5 minute drive. Nothing fancy but well maintained. Would come back here next time we are in State College.

I have stayed at the Comfort suites previously, but not in about 2 years. My recent stay was to bring my daughter back to school at Penn State, and the hotel I have stayed at tthe last few times was booked up. The comfort Suites did not let me down, and I will probably go back to booking here when I return. The room is huge and clean, the bathroom was very clean (a really important point with me). Unfortunately, they do not have WiFi, but I think you can borrow an ethernet cable. Breakfast was bland but very plentiful - not your continental breakfast here! Only issue was the seating for breakfast - definitely not enough. The pool looked good, but was very busy with families - workout room was ample. In all, the hotel actually seemed beter than the last times I stayed here. and the prices are good - you can get a better deal, but they certainly don't gouge you at this hotel, and the large space and cleanliness was worth it.

We come to State College once a summer for my husband to attend work seminars. This was the first year we tried the Comfort Suites, and I already have it booked for next year. The staff is friendly and helped me with directions to parks, shopping, etc. The pool is clean, yet on the chilly side, but most hotel pools are in my opinion. I used the exercise room that is well-equiped and clean. Like other reviewers said, the breakfast is above average, with 3 cereals, oatmeal packets, fruit, yogurt, milk, 2 juices, bagels, make-your-own waffles, and each day there's one special item, like egg and sausage patties or biscuits with sausage gravy. Our room was nice, a little dated though (you could just tell the bathroom hadn't been remodeled in awhile, but still clean). For the price, you can't beat having the kitchenette and staff that actually cares about you. We had a problem the first night we were there, internet was down, but by the next day it was up, but yes it was slow our whole stay. There are bus stops just down on Atherton St if you need to go downtown or anywhere else. Highly recommend Faccia Luna restaurant on S. Atherton. This hotel is close to Walmart, Target, Kohls, and the Nittany Mall is abotu 10 minutes. Definitely go downtown and walk around all the little shops, and go to the Creamery on campus for ice cream.

This Comfort Suite is located on the edge of the Penn State University campus in State College, PA. If you're traveling I-80, it is about 11 miles south of the interstate in the central part of the state.

The hotel is clean and comfortable with an indoor pool and nicely appointed lobby. There is no restaurant on site, but a continental breakfast is served until 9:30 each day. Other dining options are close by. There is a TGI Friday's literally down the hill at the end of the parking area. Across the street and to the left of Friday's you'll find an interesting Korean restaurant.

Overall, we were pleased with the room. The only caveat concerns the bath tub. It appears that the tub in our room was "remodeled" with a unit that was placed over the top of the old tub. Nothing wrong with that, except that the new tub had a much higher edge. You have to step quite high to get in and out of the tub. This might be an issue for seniors or those with limited mobility. I don't know if this was peculiar to our room, or if all tubs were modified in this fashion.

Stayed here for 4 nights while our son attended wrestling camp at Penn State. The front desk staff was very professional and helpful. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The wireless internet seemed slow at times. The pool was nice although it seemed small, and the jacuzzi was wonderful. The breakfast is much better than a typical continental breakfast. The best part would have to be the waffle irons. There were also other choices which varied day to day: buscuits and gravy, sausage, hard boiled or scrambled eggs, as well as the pastries, muffins, bananas, etc. It's also very close to T.G.I.Friday's. If we ever visit State College again (which I hope we do, it's a beautiful area) we would stay here again.
