Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, State College (Penn State Area)
Ranked #1 of 26 Hotels in State College
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 October 2013 via mobile

Stayed two nights in October on a conference trip. Couldn't bear another stay at the Ramada the conference was at.
What a surprise! Check-in was a breeze, front desk clerk made us feel like we were family coming to stay. King size room was a real bargain for the price, and was in spotless condition. I think the hotel is pretty new. Very comfortable bed, lots of outlets to charge all the junk I travel with. Roomy bathroom with a huge shower.
Coffee in the lobby seemed to be available 24/7, and pretty good. Breakfast seemed mediocre+, but I only really care about the coffee.
The staff were all great, and appeared to like working there.

We were attending a concert at St College and didn't want to drive home late so we booked what seemed to be one of the last rooms in St College for the night. This was a first time stay at Country Inns but a very enjoyable one. We checked in then went to dinner and then on to the concert so not a lot of time in the hotel. We left in the morning after a wonderful hot breakfast. We found the hotel to be all that was advertised - clean, friendly and comfortable. The front desk staff was very friendly even though busy with quite a few sign ins at the time. It was close to the concert site so only a few minutes driving time. Although we have never stayed at Country Inns previously, we will keep it in mind for future trips.

Room Tip: Our room was on the first floor but we were not bothered by noise of other cars coming and going.

Had a very pleasant one night stay in this new, modern hotel. Spacious room and huge shower were a nice surprise. A/C works great and is quiet. Room had fridge and microwave. Nice breakfast and good coffee. Friendly staff and lots of good eats nearby. No complaints!

The Country Inn & Suites in State College is a relatively new hotel for the region. It is easy to access and parking is plentiful. One is welcomed with a warm, homey atmosphere upon entering; the hotel and the staff is genuinely friendly,as though they might be your neighbors. The suite we have stayed in two different times is exceedingly clean with comfortable furniture and high quality bedding. The prices (particularly on non-football weekends) are very reasonable. It is now our first choice when traveling back "home" to Happy Valley.

Our two night stay for the Kent State football game couldn't have been better. Very nice, clean and quiet hotel. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Located right outside downtown State College, for quick easy access. Offered Hot Chocolate, Coffee and Cookies in the lobby for the guests. It will be my hotel of choice when I return!

Very clean and reasonably priced. We stayed in the King suite and the extra living space was perfect. The complimentary breakfast was very good and the entire staff was exceptional. They were all so friendly. They made you feel like they knew you for years and were very helpful. About a mile from downtown and easy access to PSU. A great place to stay!!!

I stayed at Country Inn for 3 nights for a conference and was very pleased. The room and bathroom was very spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfasts had a lot if variety everyday and l took advantage of the gym and indoor pool everyday. I will definitely be staying here again for future conferences.
