“A Home Away from Home”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We recently returned from our second visit to the Quality Inn in State College. We were there for two weeks also in January and the hotel and staff did not disappoint. The Manager, Heidi, is extremely personable and even invited us to a gathering at her house one evening. The breakfast room attendant, Nicole, even remembered that my wife liked muffins in the morning and made sure to prepare them for her. Parking is ample and always available. Even though the hotel is quite full for football week-ends, we experienced no inconveniences. Pets are usually booked in on the first floor and if there were any dogs there more than the one we saw one morning, we didn't even hear a bark. We were given a quiet room on the third floor as we had requested. The rooms are large with top cleanliness. All of the staff are friendly and the price is also right.
If you plan your stay at the Quality Inn, you won't have to look further. I might also add that the location is good, off the main drag.

The bed was comfortable. The room clean. The breakfast was very good as good as you could get out. They could have had one gluten free cereal but the other choices were sufficient. The staff was also very friendly. Great place to stay.

Room Tip: A room in the back would lessen highway noise.

My husband and I took our family back to PSU to visit since we are alums. The hotel isn't too far from campus on Atherton.

Pros:
- close to campus
- very clean and quiet
- attentive staff (our air conditioner was making noises and they resolved it right away)
- everyone from the front desk to housekeeping were very knowledgeable (a housekeeper in the elevator asked me if I was registered for their Rewards program! Says a lot about the commitment of their staff)
- easy parking
- spacious rooms

Cons:
- not a lot of variety with breakfast selections
- no pool
- exercise room somewhat limited - only had 3 machines

Enjoyed our stay in State College, PA....not too far from Penn State. It's a great little college town, very clean with many places to eat that are reasonably priced. The Quality Inn in State College provided good value and a place for us to hang our hats after visiting Fallingwater, the famous Frank Lloyd house. The hotel was clean and comfortable with several "green" areas to walk your dog. The hotel does charge extra for dogs, but at a reasonable $10 pet fee, especially when compared to other hotels that can charge as much as $50 for a dog. There is a good Italian restaurant that is right down the road from this hotel. I did not eat the free breakfast, but it looked like there was some construction going on to remodel or change that area of the hotel. All in all.....a great place to stay on your way to your next destination.

There aren't a lot of great options driving east on I-80 late into the night, and after a less than favorable experience at another chain, we were hesitant about trying an unknown motel. The rating here on Trip Advisor were a true guide and exactly on point....Quality Inn delivered of everything we needed: courteous, friendly staff; clean rooms; comfortable beds; and good value. Highly recommend! (Gave 4 stars only because of the distance from I-80.)

Needed place to stay at the last minute and the Quality Inn filled the bill. Clean, comfortable, great rate and very friendly staff. Like the picnic areas with grills out back and pastel-colored adirondack chairs that adorned the grounds. .

I have stayed at this Hotel multiple times now. Each time the service and quality is better. I was traveling with a group of friends we made our reservations ahead of time. All rooms were available and as requested on arrival. Check-in was extremely fast and without complication. The rooms here are very clean, spacious.
I cannot say enough about the manager of this hotel. We were traveling on motorcycles and had rode in rain for quite awhile. Needless to say our bikes were a mess and it had rained again overnight. We woke up to find towels on our motorcycles and extras were provided if we required them.
Thank-you again to Ms. Manager and her staff. We will return here again.
