“Great hotel”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

If you are going to State College, this is a great place to stay. It's clean, convenient & comfortable. The kitchen area in the suites (with sink, microwave & fridge) is helpful. The bathrooms are large and comfortable. The staff was welcoming, pleasant and helpful. It looks attractive & well-kept from outside and in the public areas. Although we weren't able to use the pool and hot tub, they looked inviting, and hopefully we'll get to use next time. The hotel is close to the highway, restaurants, and shopping, and it's a very quick drive to the Penn State campus.

The only downside was that the morning breakfast buffet was a little sparse and dirty (we went in the middle of the serving times, not the beginning, but by no means the end of the breakfast time) - people left their used items around the food selections, and the tables had crumbs and food left on them. There were no cups for the juice, so we had to take coffee cups from the coffee serving area in the lobby.

It also would be nice if Marriott would put queen beds instead of doubles in all their rooms - that extra 6 inches means a lot!

Dear Marji36,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed response! I’m glad to see you enjoyed your stay with us. I have already spoken with the breakfast staff to ensure a higher level of cleanliness and attention to detail. Thank you for including that in your review. Hopefully, when you visit State College again you will be able to stay with us and enjoy our new breakfast items as well as make it into the pool area for a swim!

We hope to see you soon,

This property is clustered with two other hotels and an Outback Steakhouse and Olive Garden. There is also a Texas Roadhouse and Panera Bread just up the street. The grounds are pretty with flowers and a koi pond - very pleasant atmosphere. The Hotel itself is clean, staff friendly and helpful and I just loved the gym - good equipment, working TVs and deserted - the best combination for me. There is a nice indoor pool and hot tub, which I did not use, but was getting good use by the families staying at the hotel.

Dear TRaveLDivA36,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a kind review! Our Maintenance staff work very hard to maintain the grounds, including the Koi pond, and will be happy to hear about your comments. It sounds like you had full run of the workout room, which can sometimes be hard to do. Please come back and see us again!

Thank you,

We were just passing through State College on our way across country. We booked it about a week before at a very reasonable price (out of Penn State Football Season). Very good location close to campus and good choices of groceries and restaurants nearby. Rooms were clean and comfortable with 2 doubles and a pull out couch. Frig included.

The Springhill Suites serves the purpose with a delightful group of young staff members just waiting to please you in every way. Extremely clean, with a small inside pool and jacuzzi, the hotel is well located just off the freeway with easy access to town and the college...you need a car, though, in both cases. Breakfast has fresh fruit and plenty of choices but I am always turned off by the styrofoam plates and plastic utensils...maybe this is my problem. Good vibe overall, great for families, practical and well priced. My only complaint is that we heard the family next door jumping on beds and laughing (lucky them!) at 11:30pm so the walls are a bit thin. Still, a good choice for College Park and thanks for the great hospitality!

Dear LaBernardi,

We appreciate you taking the time on this review! For your next visit, our hotel is within walking distance to the CATA bus line which travels to campus as well as downtown State College. I apologize for the noise level. Our guest services agents, who are available 24/7, can assist you with these types of issues. All you need to do is call our guest services line by pressing zero (0) on your room phone. Thank you again, and we hope to see you in the future.

We have stayed in Springhill Suites many times over the past decade, but the new renovations are great! The rooms, beds, bathrooms, elevators and pool are perfect now. The art deco lobby area is very nice.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back have a nicer view.
