“Convenient to Penn State campus”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

With have stayed at this Holiday Inn Express twice now and have been satisfied both times. The staff is very pleasant. Hotel is modern and clean. Free breakfast is included and is adequate.

Our room w/a king size bed also had a sofa. Rooms are spacious.

There are 3 national chain restaurants within essentially right next to the hotel.

Only a few minutes away from Penn State's main campus by car.

Only complaint is the tiny pillows they use. This must be a Holiday Inn Express thing. Management, go out on a limb, buck corporate policy and get some real pillows in the guest rooms.

Would stay hear again when visiting State College.

Why is this the best? Beautiful lobby, renovated guest rooms, spacious and luxurious guest rooms with a comfortable bed, fancy sink outside of the bathroom. Room has just been renovated but the bathroom has not. Bathroom has nice functional countertop and great shower water pressure. Very nice breakfast buffet included which we had in their nice lobby/dining area. Very helpful front desk staff, helping us find a nice restaurant for dinner. Holiday Inn Express has definitely upped their game in the hotel business. Will be back.

Room Tip: I asked the front desk this question and they said all the rooms are the same - they are all spaciou...

Great location close to Penn State University campus. Breakfast was good and refilled frequently (the hotel was at full capacity - football weekend). Reception desk personnel were very friendly and helpful.

This is a great hotel right outside Penn State. We stayed here for a football weekend and my hubby's bday at $200.00 per night, where most places charge upwards of $300-$400 per night on a football weekend. They have free, hot breakfast included. Upon our arrival on Friday, gourmet pretzel dogs were in the lobby for free. It is within walking distance aof a few good restaurants and a short drive to the Penn State campus. Originally, we were on the first floor, but a spotlight was shning in our window, so we asked to be re-located to a different floor. The staff accommodated us immediately. The hotel is clean and the staff is super nice. We will definitely stay again.

Thanks to Alex Appleby and the State College Holiday Inn Express for a perfect outing to Happy Valley! Alex took great care of our party of 8 by making sure we had everything we needed and answering our unending questions! This facility is new with wonderful decorating. Rooms were spotless and the common areas were just as nice. Breakfast was good and all the staff...housekeeping, kitchen, and front desk...were just great! We will be back!

Room Tip: Traveling for sports? The laundry in this building is on the first floor. There is no pool.

I recently came into State College to visit Penn State during move in weekend. I'm from out of town, and I was trying to find a great restaurant to try that is unique to the State College area. I stopped in at Holiday Inn Express, and the front desk clerk, Kimberly, was just fantastic about mentioning the College Diner downtown. The food and prices were fantastic. Thanks again Kimberly!

Room Tip: Go to the holiday Inn Express in State College! The lobby itself will sell you on staying there.

The rooms at the hotel were very nice and very comfortable. Nice to have a shower with sliding glass doors instead of a curtain! Beds were great too. The A/C was noisy, though. The breakfast was not great - eggs were somewhat artificial tasting. Stick with baked goods, cereal and yogurt. Real dishes instead of plastic would add a lot! Overall, very nice place in a good location.
