Super 8 State College
Ranked #22 of 26 Hotels in State College
Reviewed 10 July 2009

This was a nice place to stay during the 4th of July weekend. Just off the end of University Drive it had easy access to campus and downtown (about 1-1/2 miles away). Room was clean and comfortable. Didn't really spend alot of time in it but it was a good value for what we needed.

The room had a funky smell as you walked in. It was definitely dated and needed an upgrade. The bathroom molding was yellowed and mildewy in the crevices. The elevator rug was stained, dirty and didn't seem to have been vacuumed the three days I was there. On my final night there was a questionable looking fella wearing a hoodie (it wasn't cold) sitting out front talking to another questionable looking fella who had his car parked out in front of the hotel. It turned out to be the front clerk.

The place would be a decent stay if it felt clean.

Please accept my sincere apologies that your stay was anything less than satisfying. The items mentioned have been reviewed by my entire management team with emphasis placed on providing clean and comfortable accommodations during every guest stay. We have consulted local vendors and have had great success using quality products to eliminate potential odor and mold. To enhance safety and security for our guests, the night audit staff performs a routine walk around the outside perimeter to ensure that all parking areas are well lit. While performing this task, the staff member on duty was approached by another guest needing directions. To ensure that guests can easily identify Super 8 staff, all employees have been reminded to wear the required uniform while on duty.

Stayed here for 2 nights with a few friends in early April. Found the room to be fairly standard but to a nice level of cleanliness, even though the shower was definately on its last legs and hanging off of the wall.

The reception staff were probabloy the only downside of a fairly average stay, they seemed very pre-occupied and often ill experienced to respond to various queries, but these were minor points really.

The location itself is just outside town but well off campus, we had a car so it didnt pose any problem for us but I certainly wouldnt say it was walking distance.

Overall I would say my experience was very unremarkable but with no nasty suprises. You get exactly what you paid for and that was just enough.

Many apologies to you and your friends. Feedback such as yours helps to improve our service and property on a daily basis. We have recently upgraded the guest shower experience to include a curved shower bar and massage setting showerhead. I apologize for any confusion regarding our location. Super 8 is located 2 miles from the Penn State University, approximately 5-10 minutes if you are driving.

We stayed at the Super 8 during a baseball tournament at State College. There was also a huge volleyball tournament going on and hotels were booked up. The staff at the Super 8 was very nice and pleasant - a real plus. The breakfast in the AM was nice, as were the free newspapers. Location was fine.

However, I could only take one night in the room. The bathroom was clean, though small and outdated. But the sheets on the bed were like burlap and I guess housekeeping tried to get the stains out of the sheets but couldn't quite do it. The whole room smelled like cigarette smoke, although this was a non-smoking floor. The smell was so bad I couldn't sleep. I would try elsewhere, although if you bring your own sheets, the price was certainly right.

My son and I were visiting Penn State and just needed a nice place nearby in which to stay. And the Super 8 was perfect. In fact, it surpassed my expectations because I know of some other Super 8 locations that are not so nice.

Here are the things I appreciated: the TV; shower; heater; free breakfast; free newspaper, free coffee, fruit and cookies in lobby at all times; helpful front desk; just the general cleaniness of the place.

Things that bothered me: I hate when the sink and shower/toilet are separated; I booked there because of the hot tub and the area was closed due to putting in a new floor.

More specifically:

The breakfast of bagels, rolls, yogurt, cereal, coffee, juice, etc., was more than adequate. Front desk gal explained the bus service to the Penn State campus. A bus stops nearby. Oh yea, there is great Perkins Restaurant next to the hotel.

I did not smell anything terrible as mentioned in a couple of previous reviews. Not even a hint of cigarette smoke.

And the rate was only a little more than 50 bucks.

The first room they put me in smelled like a wet, dirty dog (the hotel does allow pets, so a dog must have been staying there prior to
me). I asked to be moved, and was quickly accomodated. The next room was cleaner, but the A/C left the room feeling pretty swampy by the end of the weekend. Overall, I'd say it's a "you get what you pay for" hotel. Cheap, mostly clean, budget kind of place.
