This was our second stay at the Penn Stater. Friendly staff, immaculate room, especially loved the sunday afternoon brunch! After a long day of events, we were too tired to go out so we tried Legends Pub. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of selections on the menu, not just your typical hamburger and fries and the food was beautifully presented and delicious! Will definitely be back!

I haven't stayed in many hotels in my life, but once a year there's an educator's conference at the Penn Stater, and I love staying here. The staff have always been extra helpful and courteous, and the food has always been amazing. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The bar downstairs has a decent selection of draft beers and a large variety of bottles. The Penn Stater is a short drive away from the main drag of University Park if you feel like venturing out; you can even request a shuttle to take you there!

Room Tip: Near the elevators, hallways are very long.

The Penn Stater is a Scandinavian style hotel and conference center in the Technology Park near Penn State. The rooms are large and well appointed. The staff is attentive. I suggest you ask for a room closer to the elevator, or you could be walking a LONG time. There is no included breakfast, although there is a nice pub and buffet restaurant downstairs. Ample parking is available and if you need to go downtown or to an event on campus, there is a courtesy van service available.

I was pleasantly surprised! Large, comfortable, clean rooms. Staff is very professional and attended to all needs. Lobby is beautiful with a giant fireplace. Just an all around great place to stay. A 5 star hotel and a 3 star price. I would stay here again!

I love staying at the Penn Stater. I visited State College frequently and I try to always stay at the Penn Stater. It is convenient and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. The Legends is a great place to socialize with friends (but is a littly pricey). Still this hotel has a pleasant atmosphere. I have stayed here for the last 5 years.

This is a very well run establishment. The service is great and the facility is very well maintained. Food and beverage offerings are reasonably priced and of high quality. This is my first choice of hotels when visiting Penn State.

Beautiful view of Happy Valley from our room. The hotel was extremely clean. Room was comfortable - loved the granite countertops. By taking the free shuttle to graduation we were in & out quickly making the trip stress free.
