Ramada State College Hotel & Conference Center
Ranked #21 of 26 Hotels in State College
Reviewed June 29, 2011

The management goes all out for this moderately priced hotel. All the attributes that most of us are looking for in a small city hotel are here- clean and updated rooms, comfortable mattresses, modern and comfortable lobby, friendly staff, quite and well behaved patrons. Also, the hotel is well maintained with outside landscaping and overall attractive general appearance of the building. The inside pool area, although dark because it's surrounded by rooms, is nicely appointed and spacious and serves as a fine sitting area. We didn't try the restaurant or lounge but it looked inviting. Our stay was for 3 nights and I'd definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for pool side rooms to be near pool.

We stayed at the hotel with a group of about 25 people. The hotel is well situated and clean. The rooms were large and either had a king bed or two doubles. They were fairly comfortable. The bathrooms are very basic and could use a little upgrade. The sink is outside the bathroom itself, which may or may not suit some visitors. There is both an outdoor pool - very nice - and an indoor pool and hot tub - convenient if the weather is bad. When you reserve, try to say away from the rooms that look onto the indoor pool area if you are concerned with noise (or the smell of chlorine).

there is a complementary breakfast on weekdays, which we did not partake in, as we were only there on the weekend. I looked at the fare on Saturday morning, and its contents and $7.99 price were not enticing.

This was our second stay at the Ramada in State College. They rooms are nice and clean..not to mention one of the best beds I have slept in at a hotel. The stay was for a travel softball team both times. Very easy to book the block of rooms with a great rate! The kids loved both the indoor and outdoor pool. Breakfast is available but not included(for the rate we got..didn't matter much) Staff was eager to please and very courteous. See you soon..I am sure.

Room Tip: If booking a block of rooms..call hotel directly.

I am very pleased that you found your guest room accommodations to be clean and comfortable. As mentioned, the hotel does have rooms located by the pool, which many guests prefer such as yourself, although, there is sometimes a noise factor which we try to minimize. I look forward to your return stay, and I will pass along your comments to our staff.

Best regards,
Jennifer

Overall, the room was clean and comfortable at a reasonable price. The room size is average and beds were comfortable. Our room was located by the pool, which was not a big deal until their was a function going on with loud music. However, it only played until 11. The everyday pool noises were not too loud and if you had your TV on in the room you could hardly even tell.

Room Tip: If you don't like noise, stay away from pool

I returned to State College to visit with fraternity brothers from the seventies, a sort of reunion. I stayed at the Ramada for two nights in room 230. The room itself was adequate and had the usual Ramada amenities. However, it was near the indoor pool and the reception area used for things like wedding receptions. So, every morning at precisely 8 AM the children would be in the pool not using indoor voices. The area is a large atrium and it was noisy and voices echoed. A wedding reception was on Saturday but it was not too bad. Overall, the hotel is adequate for a short stay, nothing fancy, and is in fair condition. I did not use the restaurant or bar.

Room Tip: Avoid at all costs a room near the atrium/pool

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay in June. While many guests prefer the poolside rooms, they are noiser than our other rooms due to the indoor pool and atrium area. I hope you will stay with us again and the future.

Best regards,

This is a very nice hotel. The staff was friendly and provided a free airport shuttle for us late at night which very helpful. The room was comfortable and clean. The complimentary breakfast consisted of eggs, sausage, and other hot items in addition to the normal cereal, yogurt, etc. There were also cookies in the lobby which was a nice surprise. The rooms are located around a pool in an atrium style which was a cool feature. The surrounding area seemed nice too. The only comment I can make is that the comforters appeared a little dirty. Overall I would stay here again.

Thank you for your wonderful comments about our facility. I am glad you had the opportunity to enjoy our free hot & cold weekday breakfast buffet which is a great value for all of our guests. In the near future, we are also going to be revamping our breakfast area to include a new design and layout. I will send you a message regarding your comforter as we will need to clean or replace that specific one, but will need your name and/or room number. Thanks again and we look forward to your return stay.

Due to an unexpected heavy snow fall, our Special Olympics group of 15 athletes and 5 coaches had to spent a night at the State College Ramada Inn. Although our arrival was late at night and knowing that we had spent nearly 3 hours on the road in horrible weather conditions, the front desk staff went way beyond the normal call of duty to make our group feel welcome. They arranged discounted pizza and drinks from a nearby shop, set up conference rooms with plates, napkins, cups and cutlery so we would have a place eat comfortably and managed to situate us all in adjacent rooms. As Head of Delegation and responsible for the well-being of our athletes, I commend the staff and the Ramada organization for their extra effort. Thank you.
