“Nice rooms -- Friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

I stay here often for business meetings in State College. This hotel is convenient to several restaurants within walking distance or delivery -- Olive Garden, Cracker Barrel, Outback Steakhouse. I've never had a problem with the cleanliness of the rooms. The staff is always friendly and helpful.

We stayed here on our way to Washington DC, the reception staff was very friendly, we enjoyed the breakfast. The breakfast area was spacious and clean. The room was of a good size and clean, no complaints there. The location of the hotel was convenient for us, close to the highway and our favourite Olive Garden restaurant. Loved the quaint State College and all it had to offer.
We would definitely stay at this Holiday Inn Express again. We were very satisfied.

We stay here on a regular basis when we visit relatives. It is convenient by car to Penn state but away from downtown. It is average at best. The rooms look clean but don't look too closely at the bathroom floors. This last stay our room didn't get made up until 4:30 pm, and we had to push them. Our air conditioner whined and wheezed. We complained. We were told it would be checked. Maybe it was but it wasn't fixed. The price fluctuates wildly if there is "an event." We've had rates as low as $103 and as high ad $269. Annoying. But convenient so we keep going back.

The facility is new, the foyer and rooms were well decorated. My room was comfortable and quiet. My only complaint was the cleanliness of the bathroom. The splatter marks and mildew on the bathroom tile did not instill confidence in the housekeeping. I was able to wipe up the stain with damp toilet paper, so it was not a permanent stain. The next morning I asked the front desk to request housekeeping take a closer look at the soiled tile floor. Unfortunately the floor was no different that evening. Also, the breakfast was slim pickings all week. I would have killed for a fresh piece of fruit, but that hope went the way of the clean bathroom too.

A bunch of us were dropping the kids off at Woodward for cheer camp and stayed here again. Andrew on the desk is awesome, good job. The rooms are clean and the breakfast met our needs. We'll be back again!

What a treasure of a hotel! The Hotel decor what lovely, clean,spacious and newly renovated. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. They do not have a pool but were kind enough to call the hotel beside them and ask if our children could swim there-we did. They have a relaxing garden patio,we order take out and ate as a family.The hot breakfast was well stocked and a great start to our day. Our room was large,2 single bed plus a pull out couch(all of the bedding was provided,no extra call was required.) The linen were soft and luxury.

My sister and I stayed here on Saturday, August 3rd on our way to drop off our girls at Woodward camp. This hotel is right off the highway. The rooms are clean, beds are ultra comfortable and the free breakfast in the morning is very good.
This hotel is also located right next to the Outback Steakhouse (wasn't impressed with the food though for the prices we paid) but it allowed us to have a drink without worrying about driving anywhere afterwards. (walk back to our room)

Room Tip: We stayed on the ground floor so didn't need to use the elevators.
