We found the Courtyard to be a step up from most hotels in the State College area. The rooms were quite spacious, clean & very comfortable. We stayed twice: a Thurs & Mon night. It was remarkably quiet despite the number of guests. Small but very nice pool area. Although it is well off-campus, you can choose to drive or...

Stayed here during a Penn State tour. Its close to campus (about 1 mile) easy to get to and from. Staff is friendly, rooms were clean and quiet. They have a small bistro type food service in lobby. Had breakfast there, and enjoyed it. I would stay here again if I return.

Very nice hotel! I'm not sure if all rooms have been remodeled or not, but ours is very modern and cool! High ceilings. Very comfortable bed, unique curved couch. Lovely! Room is immaculate. Pool is very nice and whirlpool is surprisingly strong for a hotel! I've stayed at a lot of Courtyard and other Marriott props and if this is...

Just got home from a Penn State football weekend. Decor and ambiance is what you would expect for a Courtyard. Staff was great and very accommodating. Indoor pool and spa. Price was outrageous, approximately 4x the non football price but that's to be expected. BTW we won!

I have stayed at a billion Marriott properties, mainly Courtyards, and this one is very nice. You can tell it was remodeled recently. The staff was friendly and the room was comfortable. Not much else to say. I would stay here again if in the area.

We only stayed one night but the staff was very nice checking in and leaving. Great Mexican restaurant within walking distance and a CVS. Room was clean and comfortable, nicely decorated. One negative is that the hotel and the room had a musty odor. Our noses accommodated quickly, but definitely noticeable....

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our king room was spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable. The room was very clean and there was ample lighting. I have stayed at several hotels in State College over the years and would rate this as one of the best.

must have been the vendor for the primary furniture in the room I was in there - it was an ugly laminate material for the desk & TV stand. I was told the rooms had been renovated within the past year; I'd hate to have seen the previous decor. That aside, the room could have used another lamp/light source +...
