“Great place!”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

The Penn Stater was very clean and the staff was professional, friendly, and helpful. The food was good and the environment made my conference pleasant. I didn't have to worry about my room or meals. Everything was as expected and it made my time much easier. I've stayed at other hotels in State College and I would recommend making the Penn Stater your first choice.

Penn Stater conference center is top in my book. The front desk girls know their job better than any other hotels front desk . The rooms are big including the bathroom. Bar is good and the bar tenders are very fast. The restaurant prices are very good and so is the food. Penn Stater is located a short drive from the main campus or you can take the hotel shuttle. This is a very good hotel and the front desk can handle any problem you have.

Attended a conference and stayed at the Penn Stater 3 nights. The room was clean, somewhat institutional, but comfortable. It is a little difficult to maneuver back and forth from the conference center since the venue is oddly configured. This is probably because the original building was a former Scanticon. The food was passable, nothing special. All-in-all it does serve the purpose of making it unnecessary to leave the premises which is good when business needs to be conducted all day. Yes, I would recommend it.

Room Tip: Stay on the third floor or above so that the hotel can be accessed from elevators in the conference...

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.
