Residence Inn State College
Ranked #23 of 26 Hotels in State College
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 26, 2012

We bounced around hotel to hotel for weeks waiting for our house to close escrow. A total of 4 people with a cat limits your choices in State College. I wish we had spent more time at the Residence Inn. When given the choice to spend more money per night with a better than average free breakfast and have a nice kitchen verses a less expensive smaller room and go out every meal, go with a Residence Inn. We had the 1 bedroom suite with the pull out sofa that was reasonably comfortable for the kids. Friendly staff at the front desk and very helpful with faxing documents over the course of our stay. Flat panel TV's (2) for HDMI if the kids bring their XBOX or similar devices. I'd stay there again.

This is an older Residence Inn which has had some updates to the lobby area. The rooms however are still outdated and are quite small compared to newer properties. We stayed in the 1-bedroom suite which had a very small bedroom. The pull out couch was very uncomftable to sleep in. The location of this hotel is good witth some restaurants nearby, but it is a few minute drive to get to the heart of downtown. The complimentary breakfast is adequate, but is much more limited in comparison to other Residence Inn properties.

MNPilot, I regret that you found your stay with us only average, as we aim to meet every guests’ expectations! I will work with operations to see if there is something we can do to make our pull out couches more comfortable and our breakfast more adequate. Please consider staying with us again when traveling with family in our area. Warmest regards, Shane Niman, General Manager

Nothing really to complain about here, except the really spotty internet and wireless signal, which seems to be common at every Marriott property in State College. And I've stayed in them all the past few weeks. Really nice breakfast; efficient, friendly staff; very nice grounds...and that great Residence Inn offering of a kitchen to cook your own food. I do wish these places had more than a cooktop. But it's better than just microwaving popcorn (which, of course, you can also do here).

We stayed at the Residence Inn State College for the weekend of the Boalsburg Keystone Division Annual Memorial Service. The hotel is just finishing a top to bottom remodel. The room was comfortable and nicely decorated. We had a kitchen with full-sized fridge, dishwasher, a small cooktop, and cupboard space with basic dishware and utensils. The room also includes a small table for two. It was large enough to accommodate my two young children without feeling cramped. We spent both evenings in the indoor pool, which was kept at an ideal temperature. Overall, we were extremely pleased with this hotel and will be looking to stay at other Residence Inn hotels for future travel.

While the hotel isn't located in the center of town, it's only a quick drive to the city center which provides a quiet night of sleep!

Room Tip: Quiet, centrally located & pet friendly.

We had a terrific stay at the Residence Inn! We were there for Pen State's Graduation and had a one BR which was wonderful. Hotel must have been recently updated because it now looks much different than the posted pics. Rooms were modern and spacious great flat screen TVs that swiveled for viewing from the Bedroom or living/kitchen area, great furnishings, granite counters. We had family staying at another area hotel but we discovered there was still one 2BR unit available due to a cancellation, and our family liked the residence inn so much they booked the room! The 2 BR is great for a larger group. There are 2 separated BRs and a pullout. We didn't wake up in time for breakfast, but the area where it is served is lovely. We will be back hopefully for a football weekend next fall! Highly recommend! Very convenient to all campus venues.
