Certificate of Excellence

I stayed there for a business meeting. I didn't plan to stay but because of the weather, that changed. They were very accommodating. The room was clean, warm and spacious. The front desk staff as well as the staff that I met in the halls were very friendly. The meeting room was also good for our meeting needs.

Stayed: January 2014

This hotel is a short drive to the airport and college. Very nice rooms with tons of plugs- thank you!!!

The rooms so have mini fridge and microwave. Always a plus- another thank you!!!

It is not your modern hotel with chic amenities but they offer a nice cozy sitting area in the lobby, always coffee, tea available in the lobby, the gym was very nice, the pool was small but at least there is one!

They also offer free breakfast, but I was a little disappointed with the fake eggs (the batter is the premade one). No matter how much salt or pepper I put in them, it had a null taste.

I had to leave the eggs and moved forward with bread, fruit, etc. oh well!

The rooms and beds are very comfortable and I was please to received a welcome phone call when I got to my room. Also the phone had a display window and that was nice to know who was calling me.

Everything was fresh, clean, and convenient. Loved the space in the room and very accommodating for their guests. We usually don't stay at Country Inn & Suites, but this stay changed our minds. We will definitely stay here again if back in the area!

I like this hotel very much despite hardly staying! We arrived late at night and left early in the morning. I stayed in a suite and it was very well presented and lovely rooms and decor. The hotel has everything you need for a longer stay, and I do want to come back. Its amazing how the hotel is so new and yet looks so classical, it could easily be 50 years old, yet its fresh and clean and would highly recommend

Great hotel if you're staying in the State College/Bellefonte area! Lobby is very pleasant. Check-in was very fast (Nicki, who check us in, was wonderful!) The complimentary cookies and hot beverages in the lobby were great, and the included hot breakfast bar was fantastic. Rooms are very clean, tv's are all 32" flat panels, bed comforters are thick and warm, ice machines on each floor and a variety of snack and beverage machines in the lobby area by the elevators, and, best of all--rooms were quiet, quiet, quiet! We've stayed at this hotel a few times now and every time it gets better and better and feels more like home each time. We haven't made use of the indoor pool or exercise room yet but both look clean and inviting. Outside parking was more than ample and access to State College and Bellefonte were very convenient. Will definitely be back as we visit the area frequently.

we stayed 4 nights and from beginning to end this was a fabulous place to stay.
Patrick at the desk when we checked in and out was very pleasant and helpful.
The breakfast lady was so helpful and friendly. Our room was immaculate.
I would also like to compliment the young lady that worked the front desk Thanksgiving evening shift and the day after. She was so pleasant and willing to help out and answer anything we ask of her. Sorry I don't know her name either.
We had stayed at this property before and at the end of this stay we booked for next Thanksgiving.

We were in town for our son's fraternity parent weekend and chose Country Inn & Suites because we had a great experience at another in a different town. CI &S has everything needed for a totally enjoyable stay. Comfy king size bed, roomy suite, refrigerator, in-room safe, easy to operate T.V, thermostat on the wall so room temp. is very easy to regulate, and very quiet on the top floor! Our overnight stay included a very nice breakfast(excellent waffles by the way). Good location about a mile from downtown. We will definately stay here every time we come to PSU.

Room Tip: top floor(level 5) was very quiet.
