Excellent hotel. Rooms were clean, beds were clean, and the bathroom was immaculate. Nice lil city as well with a cute little mall in town. Loved the hot tub, pool, and Gym (even though I was still too young at the time too be allowed in. Still thought it was fascinating honestly lol.) Would definitely LOVE to revisit and stay again on my own sometime. 10/10 and this hotel comes very highly recommended.

I have stayed at the Penn Stater many times. It is our go-to hotel for football weekends or other times when visiting our student at Penn State. The rooms are always super clean, the staff friendly and the shuttle service can't be beat. The property is a bit large, so if you have a lot of luggage or mobility issues request a hotel near the elevator. If not, you may have an unwanted hike to get to your room. If you have the opportunity to have brunch there on the weekend, you will not be disappointed. It is full of many tasty selections.

The Penn Stater is top notch for conference needs. Staff are well prepared to handle multiple situations. Professional, courteous and accommodating. Although the venue is very large and the layout could be confusing, everyone made certain to ask if they could help in offering direction and there was appropriate signage to aid in locating your destination.

This was a wonderful location for out training sessions. The staff were very helpful and considerate. The rooms were comfortable and well layed out for our sessions and easy to get around even for me. I recently aquired a knee infection by access was always there if I wanted to avoid the stairs.
