“Fine for one night”
Reviewed 29 August 2014

Hotel was fine. Move-in weekend for PSU kids, so hotel was full. Rate was of course a bit higher than usual for that reason too. Beds ok. AC unit noisy. Spacious room. Bathroom fairly clean. Complimentary breakfast adequate, but held in a very small area for the # of guests that weekend. Could use a bit more parking. We had a late dinner so when we got back to hotel at 10pm, every spot was taken. We had to park behind the restaurant next door. Nice perk that each room has a small fridge. Would likely stay again if the rate stays consistent. Seems most hotels in the area price gouge when it's a home game, parent's weekend, move-in weekend or graduation. Not fair but legal, I guess.

I can't say enough great things about this place - it is located quite near the Penn State campus, as well as near off campus housing and all the shops and fast food places on Atherton St as well. The staff is just amazingly friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The breakfast is not just muffins and coffee, it's eggs and sausage and a wide array of bread/muffin options and waffles and cereal and fruit and juices and milk and coffee and tea. This isn't the fanciest place, but it's more than adequate, it's very clean and it's by far the friendliest. I whole heartedly recommend it!

Clean room and helpful staff were the two things that stood out to me. The room was affordable and comfortable. It is the best deal in hotels that I have come across lately. I will certainly stay here the next time we are in State College.

I stayed at your hotel back in June 2014 and it was the best stay I have ever had in a quality inn. I had an extremely clean room and the desk staff were very friendly and professional. They even accommodated me with a tooth brush and toothpaste which somehow my wife forgot to pack for me. Then there was the awesome breakfast that was fully stocked with eggs and sausage and they even had a waffle maker. OUTSTANDING!! I would recommend this hotel to anyone that is thinking about staying in the area.

Very nice, clean rooms, good breakfast, a lot better than the other Quality Inns, a nice selection in a large sunroom area. All new coffee machines etc.
This is where we stay when in town on business trips.
I recommend staying here.
I normally stay at Comfort and Quality Inns, and this is the best one so far.

Dear SwissRoadWarrior, Thank you for sharing your experience on TripAdvisor! So glad you enjoyed breakfast in the new sun room. We only recently completed the renovation to our breakfast area. It is a great way to start the day! Yes, the coffee machines are brand new. Now you get a fresh brewed, steaming cup of coffee at the press of the button! Thanks for staying with us and I hope to see you again soon.

Had a very pleasant stay at the Quality Inn. The staff was very friendly. Rooms were affordable, clean and comfortable. Plus you they have free wi-fi and breakfast. Delicious coffee and you can make your own waffles (not the frozen ones). Hotel is located in the center of everything all restaurants, shops and down the road for the college. We will definitely be back.

I have environmental allergies and have many food allergies as well. I was shocked ( a good shocked ) to learn how accomodating this hotel was with my gluten free diet, as well as my chemical sensitivities. All you really have to do is ask. I didn't even think to ask because most places don't think of accomodating people like myself, so I drag my own sheets, pillows, food everywhere I go. They do have gluten free bread and special sheets if you're chemically sensitive like myself. BRAVO!!!! There should be more hotels like you! They were so nice, it was really a great stay. WHO KNEW?
