Stayed here one night. Great place.....breakfast was really good. The lady (didn't get her name) who takes care of breakfast was so nice and helpful. Aaron who checked us in was "The Best!". Friendly staff goes a long way in making a stay enjoyable. Hotel was clean and beds were comfortable. Price was great too. About a mile away from the college but I preferred that instead of being right in with the college scene.

Arrived early, but checking in was no problem. Room was very clean and comfortable. The only "complaint" (if you want to call it a complaint) was that there was no available outlet near the nightstand next to the bed, which was a minor inconvenience. Staff was very helpful and accomodating, especially when I thought I would have to extend my stay due to the changing weather conditions. I will most definitely stay here again!

Just needed a spot to stop and snooze the night before a flight out of the College Park airport. This fit the bill. It is convenient and Aaron accommodated with hardly a hesitation, when I asked to be switched to a main floor room. In the morning, I was greeted by several members of the staff, and found a spacious and well arranged breakfast room. The food is placed all around the perimeter and is spaced so as to provide ample room for access and to accommodate a large crowd (although it was empty when I arrived). There was a waffle maker, along with both cheese and veg omelets, bacon, yogurt,fruit, bagels and of course cereal, juice, and coffee. Tasty! Nicole took pride in her work as the server in the room, chatting with guests and getting empty plates and keeping things cleaned up.

The room was also pleasant and had all the needed amenities. Although there was a sign at the front of the property that told you it was being worked on, there was little to cause interruption or inconvenience.

Over all, there is much to like about the Quality Inn, and little in the area of needed correction.

Dear Puffinfan, I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Aaron and Nicole are both wonderful members of our very friendly and accommodating staff. When you fly out of University Airport next time feel free to leave you car here and catch the Nittany Airport Shuttle. They are very inexpensive and super reliable. I hope to see you again when we have finished the rebuilding of our permanent breakfast area. It will a larger and very inviting area to start the day. Thank you for staying with us! Heidi

As someone with pet allergies, I didn't realize pets were welcome at this hotel. I had to ride elevators with them, which caused an allergic flare. With that said, the hotel is clean, the shower large and the staff is great. The friendly, helpful woman at breakfast had the best attitude and customer focus of any hotel employee I've observed in a long time. The breakfast was great and WiFi speed sufficient.

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay. I am sorry that the pets we welcome caused you discomfort. I hope that it was only in the elevator! We do take additional steps to clean rooms that pets stayed in to ensure that our non-pet lovers rest comfortably in their rooms. I am very glad that, otherwise you found the hotel to be clean and comfortable. I shared your comments about breakfast with Nicole. That made her day! Thank you for staying with us. I hope we see you again soon! Heidi

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
