Thank you for a great review of your recent stay. With our recent refreshing of our guests rooms, it's nice to know that you noticed!! We certainly do try to give our guests a lot for their money, with a great hot breakfast and more room amenities than some other suites hotels. Thank you again for your review and we so look forward to seeing you soon.

I have traveled alot but this is by far the best hotel and staff that i have ever experienced. The entire staff, including the managers, desk clerks, laundry, housekeeping and maintenance personnel are the most helpful and courteous that i have experienced. My room is always immaculate as well as the entire hotel and grounds. This hotel should be highly commended for the efforts put forth from the staff. My stays here are always the most pleasant. I recommend anyone traveling to State College to make reservations at this facility. Hats off for a job well done!

Room Tip: The left side of the hotel is quieter.

We got to state college around 10 pm . Call the hotel and got room . We put the address and put in the gps . What come up was so weird that we had to call hotel back as this was our first time to state college . The lady at the desk was so helpful and gave such great directions . The room was clean , comfortable and a nice size . In the morning my daughter went down for breakfast to get us a table . No luck so we ate in the room . Some that was fine and we just had bagels and bananas with coffee . Just wish it was till 10 am . Easy check out and just followed the directions backwards .

We had no complaints about this hotel. The lobby, halls, breakfast room, pool, and fitness center were all clean and attractive. The desk staff was exceptionally friendly, efficient and helpful with restaurant suggestions and directions to places. Our room and bathroom were immaculate, well-equipped, and attractive. The bed was wonderful. The air conditioning worked well, and was quiet, as were our room and the entire hotel.

The location was very good - close to the campus, shops, restaurants, a park, and a nice bike/hiking trail. The price was very reasonable. We will definitely stay here again.

This was our first stay at Comfort Suites. Our room looked over the parking lot, which was so well lit, our room was lit up at night as the halogen lamps penetrated the window shades. Make sure you get a room that does not face the parking lot. The room was rudimentary and clean. The biggest problem was the intermittent internet. Up for 5 minutes, down for 10 minutes, up for 3 minutes, down for 20 minutes. It tool me hours and hours to get my work done. Calling the front desk yielded a support company that basically was of no help, after waiting a 1/2 hour for the support agent to pick up. I thought for the price it would have been nicer, and had solid internet. The breakfast was outstanding, so if you like a nice free breakfast as your priority, you will love this property.

Room Tip: Don't get a room which faces the parking lot, the lights shine into the room even with the curta...

A hotel is defined by the quality of the services it provides to its guests. Consequently, it’s disappointing to learn of your unhappiness. Such as those you have mentioned to us.
Please accept my sincere apology. We know how frustrating it can be to have the internet not being consistent while working, especially when deadlines are trying to be met. I have turned your concerns over to our Internet Specialist to see why there wasn't a consistent connection during your stay and that the wireless company wasn't very helpful to you in resolving the issue.
We accommodate many guests each night, and we strive to make their stay a satisfying one. Since the principle goal of our hotel is to provide dependable services to all guests at a reasonable price, I want you to know that the comments and suggestions we receive are taken seriously. They tell us what we’re doing right, and where we can make improvements. Your willingness to share your recent experience is genuinely appreciated.

Please be assured that the issues you’ve raised have been addressed. As a conclusion, I will work with the Internet department on how we can make the necessary changes and improvements as well. Thank you for taking the time to share your concerns with us.

We look forward to serving you again during your next stay in the State College area.

Sincerely,
Patty Mandell,AGM

Stayed here for a weekend get-away with family. The rooms were a good size and the beds were comfortable. The rate was among the most reasonable in the area for the type of hotel it was. Breakfast (hot and cold cereal, muffins, bagels, danish, waffles, fruit, yogurt and two hot choices that change daily) is included and it's more than enough to get you going in the morning. The only complaint I have is to extend the time to 10am so sleepy heads can make it too. The pool and hot tub are very nice after a long day of exploring the area. The location is central and parking is free. I would stay here again!

Thank you for taking the time to fill out the survey on behalf of our hotel and staff. It sounds like you had a Great weekend getaway,and you enjoyed our delicious breakfast the we serve that has a variety for everyone.I would be glad to make mention about extending the breakfast hours for ALL of the sleepy heads that need those few extra minutes to sleep in. Our pool and hot tub seemed to be the place to hang out while unwinding from spending a day exploring all the local shops in the area. We are certainly pleased that you enjoyed your stay and will return for another visit soon.

Many thanks,

Overall an excellent choice and one I'd suggest. Attended the Penn State Graduation ceremonies and along with my very extended family. We had booked several rooms (4). In all there were 10 of us ranging in age from 3 to 81. For most of us, the word "suite" didn't really fit because they were really single oversized rooms with a sink, fridge, microwave and coffee maker inside. However, I couldn't think of any other word to describe the additional features these rooms have so just check if your idea of suite is the same as the hotels.. Very roomy. Mine had 2 big beds and a pull out sofa. For me it was a bit off a jump to get onto the bed :) because they are pretty high up for those of us who are shorter. Upon our arrival - close to 5pm our rooms were not yet ready. We were told that a staff member was ill, there were late check outs, etc, etc and they were behind in room prep.and it would be a short time before our rooms were all done. My parents - (the 2 eldest in our group) were really the only ones with an issue and the staff had it all done in minutes for them. It happens. And they immediately addressed the issue and set forth a plan to get the rooms ready for us. The rooms were perfect for us. The pool and hot tub were awesome. The Continental breakfast was perfect though the choices of hot food was limited to eggs, a side dish and waffle maker. I also wished there was a lactose free creamer choice for coffee - international delights or my favorite coffeemate creamers. There was plenty of milk and half and half available (but I ran out of lactaid pills!) Awesome location - especially if you're going to a Penn State function. The lobby was very comfortable and overall no complaints.
