“Great staff”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

Staff was very helpful, and they seemed to enjoy their jobs.
Their breakfast and brunch was very good, and an excellent value. Be sure to make a reservation if it is a football weekend.
They also run a shuttle bus to and from the football stadium, so you can save some money on football parking.
It was a bit pricy, but all local places are on a football weekend.
After the 4OT win over Michigan, they kept the restaurant open late.

This gem of a hotel is located a bit off the beaten path in Innovation Park near State College. It offers great access to the highway, two restaurants on-site, and a very clean hotel. The staff is attentive and accommodating. If you want to walk to downtown it will be a hike, but for a Penn State football game it's doable.

Room Tip: I reserved a Suite, it gave us more room and worth the extra money.

Although this hotel is not really walking distance to any of the Penn State campus, take advantage of the free shuttle service. The drivers are friendly, knowledgable and helpful. The door to door service was a treat! The hotel was clean, neat and all the staff was friendly and helpful.

We have been staying here over many years, and in particular for football weekends. Rooms are always clean and well maintained. The front desk Team is 2nd to none. They are under a lot of pressure and always have a smile and kind word, even under very high pressure situations. Best Place to stay in State College, University Park/Penn State. WE ARE!

I stayed here 4 or five times over the years and it’s probably one of the better places to stay in State College. This is fairly new compared to a lot of the other options. (days inn) It has plenty of parking and if you have any events scheduled at the conference center, of course it’s the place to stay. It’s a few miles away from campus, so its not as convenient as the Atherton or Nittany lion inn. The restaurant is very good for breakfast. We always seem to get the room at the other end of the conference center which is a very long walk. The room it self is decent, although the design is somewhat odd. If you put a little prep island in the room for the frig and coffee maker, a little sink would be nice. The shower was OK as was the bed, both were nothing special. The room is clean but showing a little wear. The lobby is really nice with the fireplace and seating area. The Staff is fantastic. It services its purpose for a short stay.

Room Tip: Ask for something closer to the main entrance.

I have the pleasure of staying at the Penn Stater once a year at the Pennsylvania State SHRM Conference. The property is clean, bright, accommodating, and comfortable. The staff are friendly and gracrious. The Chai Latte machine is a special treat between conference sessions!

Room Tip: I always ask for a king away from the ice machines and elevators.

I was there for two days for a conference, and pleasantly surprised. Nice facility, good food, friendly staff. I loved the stocked snack areas between sessions, very nice touch. Now, every conference and budget is different, but the food/service was really good. Plenty of parking is available, which was a nice bonus for a large conference.
