This Courtyard gives you what you come to expect from the chain. A clean hotel with amenities that are geared towards business travelers, along with friendly and helpful service.
I did find the pool area to be better than most Courtyards. The lap pool was large and had a nice water feature behind it and the jacuzzi was just fine. The exercise room was also well equipped.
I found the location to be great; not too far from downtown State College, but far enough for some quiet.

We Have stayed in this hotel numerbous times and it by far has been the best hotel we have stayed in at state college. Diana at the front desk is wonderful and all the other staff was very helpful as well. It's quiet yet close enough to town to go to the night life. Strongly recommend this hotel.

This is such a nice place to stay. It is new and at the edge of town, near several restaurants. A hot breakfast buffet, with waffles if requested, is available on the first floor. Our room was good-sized, with excellent light-blocking curtains and a quietly-purring climate control system. I slept later than I am able to do at home. Staff is young, pleasant, and efficient. Hotel van service to University Park Airport is easy to arrange and goes quickly and on-time. Occasionally, when the wind is in the southeast, you can tell outside the building that you are in a rural area, but inside the building the air is perfectly fresh.
