We stayed here for a quick one-night stay. I booked it based on other reviews and the fact that rooms with 2 beds come with Queen size. Check-in staff was very nice, and the room was clean and fresh. Beds were very comfy, and the bathroom was bright and spotless. Morning breakfast was tasty and all staff we encountered was...

I came to see my niece graduate from Penn State and was impressed with the hotel. We were greeted with cookies, coffee and a smile. Although it was sold out, it did not seem so. The room had two double beds with a separate living space containing a pull out sofa bed. Everything in the room was in good condition....

My mom and I stayed here for the weekend and it was very nice. Staff was friendly, and the room was very clean which is important. They serve free breakfast, and it's pretty typical of the type of buffet breakfast you'd get at this type of hotel. The fitness center is tiny but nice as well. You're also only a...

A friend and I travelled to State College the night before a conference at Penn State and stayed here. The hotel was easy to find, conveniently located (Cab fare to PSU was about $4.), and had a wonderful selection for breakfast. One small negative: we ended up in a handicap-accessible room; the closet bar was so low in an already...

We had an absolutely wonderful time at this hotel! Was a very quiet, peaceful getaway. Not just any getaway though! This was my aunt's wedding! The staff understood that our whole family would be there, and managed to put us all on the same floor, so it was like our own little neighborhood! Staff were extremely polite. My cousin and...

The hotel and room was clean and the hotel was very accommodating. I wish we would have looked ahead to use the pool and spa facilities as they looked very nice. The complimentary breakfast was excellent. The breakfast alone was worth the stay.

Actually....I always stay at this hotel when in the State College area....I know that I'm getting top of the line service for a better price than many other hotels in the area. The breakfast is always the highlight of my stay and I seem to sleep better here than elsewhere. The location is perfect as to being near to town,...

We generally had a very good experience at this hotel. We were only here for one night so that my daughter could attend something at Penn State. This hotel is fairly close to the campus -- about a 5 minute drive -- but not really within walking distance. There was not much in the immediate neighborhood of the hotel although...

My husband and I spent one night here for our anniversary. Being winter, we didn't want to plan anything too extravagant. But this felt extravagant anyway! Excellent location. Nic at the front desk really made our stay awesome by getting us into the room we really wanted--cannot thank this young man enough. There were delicious cookies in the beautiful lobby...
