“Affordable and comfortable”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

My husband and I took our family back to PSU to visit since we are alums. The hotel isn't too far from campus on Atherton.

Pros:
- close to campus
- very clean and quiet
- attentive staff (our air conditioner was making noises and they resolved it right away)
- everyone from the front desk to housekeeping were very knowledgeable (a housekeeper in the elevator asked me if I was registered for their Rewards program! Says a lot about the commitment of their staff)
- easy parking
- spacious rooms

Cons:
- not a lot of variety with breakfast selections
- no pool
- exercise room somewhat limited - only had 3 machines

Enjoyed our stay in State College, PA....not too far from Penn State. It's a great little college town, very clean with many places to eat that are reasonably priced. The Quality Inn in State College provided good value and a place for us to hang our hats after visiting Fallingwater, the famous Frank Lloyd house. The hotel was clean and comfortable with several "green" areas to walk your dog. The hotel does charge extra for dogs, but at a reasonable $10 pet fee, especially when compared to other hotels that can charge as much as $50 for a dog. There is a good Italian restaurant that is right down the road from this hotel. I did not eat the free breakfast, but it looked like there was some construction going on to remodel or change that area of the hotel. All in all.....a great place to stay on your way to your next destination.

There aren't a lot of great options driving east on I-80 late into the night, and after a less than favorable experience at another chain, we were hesitant about trying an unknown motel. The rating here on Trip Advisor were a true guide and exactly on point....Quality Inn delivered of everything we needed: courteous, friendly staff; clean rooms; comfortable beds; and good value. Highly recommend! (Gave 4 stars only because of the distance from I-80.)

Needed place to stay at the last minute and the Quality Inn filled the bill. Clean, comfortable, great rate and very friendly staff. Like the picnic areas with grills out back and pastel-colored adirondack chairs that adorned the grounds. .

I am so glad you enjoyed the new grills and picnic area. We have just added them this spring and have found that they are very popular. Thank you for staying with us! We look forward to seeing you again soon. Heidi

I have stayed at this Hotel multiple times now. Each time the service and quality is better. I was traveling with a group of friends we made our reservations ahead of time. All rooms were available and as requested on arrival. Check-in was extremely fast and without complication. The rooms here are very clean, spacious.
I cannot say enough about the manager of this hotel. We were traveling on motorcycles and had rode in rain for quite awhile. Needless to say our bikes were a mess and it had rained again overnight. We woke up to find towels on our motorcycles and extras were provided if we required them.
Thank-you again to Ms. Manager and her staff. We will return here again.

just 'friendly' in general. This was our first stay in this area with our dog. We found the hotel to be very clean, with an exceptionally welcoming and helpful staff and a super dog-friendly environment. The room was quiet and breakfast was expansive (waffles, hot/cold cereals, eggs, toast, pastries, muffins, bagels, fruit, yogurt etc).

The desk staff gave us directions to places we could walk our dog and see the local sights.
The location is easily accessible to restaurants and even a bit of shopping within walking distance. Although the hotel grounds are small, they will more than adequately accommodate short morning/evening dog walks and pick-up bags and fresh water are readily available.

The rate was competitive...but a choice hotel promotion made it even better (be sure to check their website or sign up for the notices of promotions).

We've been to other pet-friendly hotels and this one would definitely get a top rating from us...and our dog! If we return to the area we would stay here again. it was a bit of a detour from our trip east on I-80, but definitely worth it.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the main road, we thought it might be a bit noisy, but was perfectly quiet all n...

Not a bad night's stay. The staff was friendly and helpful. We booked this hotel for several nights when the motel we originally booked fell through. The staff was friendly and provided a military rate which is always appreciated. The room we stayed in had a handicap accessible shower which my wife and I were wary of at first. It end up working out without much of a problem. The bed was very comfortable and we got a ton of pillows. Currently the hotel is under construction and there are construction workers staying on the first floor of the hotel. They all get up and leave at the same time, so there was a lot of door slamming all at once around 6:30-7:00 AM. It bothered us the first day. Overall, a reasonably priced, comfortable room

Room Tip: April 2013 - Construction workers staying on the first floor so early mornings can be noisy.
