Three night stay, and our first trip to State College. The room was fine and no fatal flaws in our stay. Objectively, not quite the levels of service or amenities we've experienced at other RI in more metropolitan locations. We are very regular Marriott customers, so we may notice some things others don't. Again, no fatal flaws, and given the... More

They need to have a reasonable pet policy and enforce it. Some guest would turn their dogs loose in the hallways. I saw large dogs jumping on other guests. Once there was even a dog fight next to the reception area. The room was ok. Nothing spectacular but ok. Breakfast buffet was often out of basic items. Excellent service from... More

Hotel room comfortable and quiet; the staff is very friendly and helpful. Some evenings events (free burgers or desserts) are organized to socialize with other guests if wanted. For my next stay at State College I will come back here.

I stay here on business whenever I'm in State College. The staff even remembers me when I walk in. The rooms are always clean, staff is always friendly, dinner and breakfast always good. It is located very close to some mini malls for convenience if you need anything you left at home.

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel before college started. The rooms we had were clean and staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was also nice here and so was the afternoon snacks. Location was nice because it was close to Penn State, PNC Bank, and a number of restaurants.
