Reviewed February 10, 2013

In town Feb 9/10 for NITTANY invitational volleyball tournament at Penn State. The group rate offered was outstanding.
Room spacious and clean. Mini fridge much needed for a tournament when you bring nutritious food for athletes.
Hot breakfast had terrific variety plus good coffee.
Staff very friendly.
A shout put to Aaron at front desk last who was particularly witty and helpful.
Location perfect.

Thank you for sharing your comments. Yes, Aaron has a creat sense of humor. I am so happy that your team finally made it through the terrible storm and got some much needed rest. We really enjoyed having all of the Volleyball teams here with us. It was a pleasure having such a great group of kids at breakfast. Wow, can they eat! Looking forward to seeing yor team next year at the tournament. Thanks for staying with us.

My wife and I stayed at the Quality Inn for two weeks this past January. We found the staff to be extremely polite, helpful, and courteous and the rooms relatively large and clean. We found the hotel to be very quiet and the beds comfortable. The dining room staff was very accomodating and kept saying that if you don't see want you want, ask for it. My wife stated a preference for hot biscuits and the woman working that breakfast brought her out a plate of hot bisquits the following morning. Even though this was off season, the rates were very good compared to other hotel chains. The heater worked well with an effective themostat on the wall to control the desired temperature. Plenty of hot water for delightful winter showers.
We will definitely stay here on our next visit to State College and fully recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room not near the elevator.

Thank you for sharing your comments. I will let Nicole know that your wife enjoyed the warm biscuits in the morning. I am so pleased that your stay was comfortable and that our staff was helpful and courteous. We strive for that kind of service everyday. Hopefully the next time you come to visit your family in State College, the weather will be a little warmer! It was such a pleasure to have you stay with us. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Every once in a while you find a treat on a trip that takes an unexpected turn. We had to get out of the storm that hit PA over Christmas holiday and this hotel came up as the closest haven from the storm. What a pleasant surprise. the people could not have been more welcoming. They treated us and our pet like family. Their welcoming attitude made our trip interruption a not very painful side trip.

The room was very high value. Clean, nicely appointed and very comfortable. But the best part was their welcome and the personable treatment.

It was such a nice experience that we changed our route on the way home to take advantage of this hotel on the return if the weather got bad again.

Room Tip: Rooms near teh front on the back side of the hotel should be quieter.

Dear Mike, Thank you for your kind comments. Snow storms always bring the nicest guests our way. I am a little bit surprised that a Michigan native wouldn’t have just plowed thru. We are glad you didn’t! We all really enjoyed visiting with you, your wife and especially, your sweet dog (who looks just like mine). It almost seemed as if you were actually visiting us over the holidays not just passing thru. We hope we see you again soon. If you need a snow storm, we will be happy to send our next one your way. Thank you for staying with us! Heidi

I have stayed here three times for work at Penn State. The hotel is one of the cleanest I've stayed in for business travel, especially considering the great rates. It's less than a five minute drive from campus, making it extremely convenient. The hotel staff was always friendly, and was able to point me in the right direction, weather it was for a morning latte or dinner. The hotel is up-to-date and appears to be expanding their breakfast area. Overall, I will definitely stay here again.

That is always our goal and I am pleased that we hit the mark. Looking forward to seeing you again soon! Thanks for staying with us! Heidi

Front desk help was very friendly and helpful. Large rooms with a king...super big bathroom with plenty of towels. Didn't do the breakfast but went across the street and had a very good one instead. Would most definitely stay again.

Our stay here exceeded our expectations. Decent price for an average room that was very clean. Beds were firm, but very comfortable, the only problem we encountered was the bathroom door sticks and was hard to close. Hotel did allow pets for an extra $10/night. Included breakfast had cereals, muffins, bagels, breads, waffles, sausage links, cheese omlet, hardboiled eggs, juices, coffee, &tea. Good quality too. Best part of the stay was the staff, they were very friendly, accomodating, and helpful.
