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 stay at many Marriott properties around the country but tend to shy away from Fairfield inns in favor of Residence or higher end Marriott hotels. This place rises to the top of all Fairfields that we have visited. Accessible location, clean and large room, friendly staff, and conveniently located next to Ottos. We will definitely return on our next... More

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 +... More

One of the first things I notice is the cleanliness of the room. Sure walls get scuffed And I'm not a big fan of the remote control that has been touched by hundreds of unwashed hands. But obvious dirt. - there is no excuse. With a residence inn across the street and a Fairfield inn close by as well, there... More

Stayed here in January 2016, while visiting State College for workshop. Was pleased that the room was very clean and furniture and decor was new and stylish. It was also very functional. The only improvement could be the thermostat control. It seemed difficult to adjust the heat level.
