“A nice pet friendly hotel”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

Enjoyed two nights here while visiting with family. Good morning breakfasts, and decent rooms. Nice and quiet. The only complaint is that my husband and I had a room with two double beds. The beds were really only standard doubles and we had to sleep in separate beds because we didn't really fit on one together.

Thank you for taking the time to complete our on-line survey. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay for the most part and apologize about the bed situation. Our hotel only offers double beds (two in each room) or a king size bed. Our king rooms are our handicapped rooms and we try to sell those out last-minute in case they would be needed for a handicapped guest that would need the accessible showers.

The next time you stay with us, feel free to ask the Front Desk staff if there are any king rooms available. If there are, we can certainly get you into one of those rooms. Again our apologies that the beds weren't ideal for this situation.

We hope that we get to see you again in the near future.

Once again I've stayed at this Quality Inn. I do feel it's one of the better QI's, based on what others have told me of this brand. Although the location is great (right across from a Waffle Shop), the parking is not so great. After returning to the hotel at night (around 11:30pm), i found several spots occupied by large trucks that had to park horizontal. Luckily, I did manage to find a few spots open. I mentioned this to the manager (Cinnamon) who was very pleasant and understanding, and informed to me that if there weren't any spaces at all, then the hotel would make another arrangement. So, if you stay here, just keep in mind that you MAY find no parking available. Still, I think the hotel management/ owner need to rethink the parking policy. The only other problem I experienced was the air conditioning in the room was horribly loud. By the time I realized this, it was too late at night to really worry about changing rooms. Overall, this place is not bad for the price ($78.11) with tax and AAA discount for one night. However, considering that no major events were taking place at the PSU campus that would explain the good price. Anymore then that, and I'd look elsewhere.

Room Tip: Check air conditioner/heating unit right away for noise.

Thank you for taking time to complete our on-line survey. We are happy that you enjoyed your overall stay with us. Unfortunately, the parking here at the hotel is a little crazy. We have to share the parking lot with some of the other properties around us. I'm not sure that there is anything else that we can do to change the situation at this time however, we will discuss it and see if anything can be handled differently.

We appreciate your business and we hope that you will consider staying with us again in the future.

I have stayed here several times. This particular stay was not very restful. Doors slamming, dogs barking(pet friendly)
People talking very loudly about their dogs in the hallway. Next time I will definitely request a second floor room or go somewhere else. Suggestion: keep all the pet lovers in one section.

Dear Patricia, I am very sorry that your stay was not what you have come to expect. A good and restful night sleep is what we hope to give all of our guests. Yes, we are pet friendly and we typically try to accommodate all of our pets on the first floor away from everyone else and close to an exit for quick access to the outdoor pet area. Please let us know when you get here next time that you need a quiet room and we will make sure that we get you away from any teams, family groups and especially Rufus! Again, my apologies. I hope we see you again soon for a quiet night.

A very clean and quiet hotel.

Surprisingly well looked after. Your family will be happy if you select this hotel.

The rates was also ideal. Will stay here again during the next trip.

Close to Walmart, McDonald's;other stores and Penn State University.

Normally, i don't have "very good" and "Quality Inn" in the same sentence; however, this one really does stand out. I had to opportunity to visit State College (not associated with football weekends) for personal reasons. This was really a very nice Quality Inn. They have a very nice, responsive, management. The hotel is kept up very nicely and it has a substantial (free) breakfast....(it does not have a full service restaurant, but there are lots of restaurants nearby) It's in a good location. Atherton is one of the main drags....there are a number of restaurants across the street from the hotel ...or within a few minutes walk....and shopping centers are also near to the hotel (say, within a 3-4 min drive) and it's also about 5 minutes away from Penn State. My room was clean and quiet and there was lots of available parking. The price of the room was also very reasonable. All in all, a very pleasant experience. I would be happy to go back there again.
