Quality Inn
Ranked #4 of 26 Hotels in State College
Reviewed 20 January 2013

I have stayed here three times for work at Penn State. The hotel is one of the cleanest I've stayed in for business travel, especially considering the great rates. It's less than a five minute drive from campus, making it extremely convenient. The hotel staff was always friendly, and was able to point me in the right direction, weather it was for a morning latte or dinner. The hotel is up-to-date and appears to be expanding their breakfast area. Overall, I will definitely stay here again.

Dear No- Noise, Thank you for your kind comments.If I remember correctly, you and your collegue were working late into the night during your stay. I am happy that our staff did not disturb you during the day and that you were able to get some much needed rest. I am also very please that you found our hotel clean and the staff helpful. That is always our goal and I am pleased that we hit the mark. Looking forward to seeing you again soon! Thanks for staying with us! Heidi

Front desk help was very friendly and helpful. Large rooms with a king...super big bathroom with plenty of towels. Didn't do the breakfast but went across the street and had a very good one instead. Would most definitely stay again.

Tom, Happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. Next time you come up for a concert at the Bryce Jordan Center, we will expect to see you here! Lucky for your little Jack Russell, I didn't catch her smoking that cigar in the room! We are smoke-free. Looking forward to seeing you again soon! Heidi

Our stay here exceeded our expectations. Decent price for an average room that was very clean. Beds were firm, but very comfortable, the only problem we encountered was the bathroom door sticks and was hard to close. Hotel did allow pets for an extra $10/night. Included breakfast had cereals, muffins, bagels, breads, waffles, sausage links, cheese omlet, hardboiled eggs, juices, coffee, &tea. Good quality too. Best part of the stay was the staff, they were very friendly, accomodating, and helpful.

Clean, friendly, affordable, and close to Penn State. What more could you ask for? 2nd time I stayed here and if my daughter is accepted to the school, I won't stay anywhere else. There are very few hotels closer to the campus and those that are will cost a fortune. Recommend.

I have stayed at this hotel twice, once in August 2012 and again in September 2012. This is a basic hotel, but it was very comfortable and clean. I was most impressed with how friendly and welcoming all of the staff members were. The room rates are a great deal considering how clean this hotel is and how friendly the staff are. I already have returned to this location a second time and it is now my go to place to stay when I am visiting State College.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are a good idea if you want to avoid the slow elevator.

We stayed here during Parents Weekend. The staff were very welcoming and gave another guest some helpful hints about reserving for graduation. The room was fine, the location is great if you are visiting Penn State. My only complaint was breakfast. The breakfast area is very narrow so it's hard to maneuver when it gets crowded and they ran out of eggs when I got there so I had to wait several minutes for the staff to bring out more. But, it is good value for the money.
