Looking for a place to spend more than a few days, try this hotel. The accomidations are fit for the "long term" everything you need is in your room, and if it's not they'll go above and beyond to try to get it. The staff is five star! Our company employees stay here and love it. I have been traveling...

I have been a guest at the hotel since May of 2016 and my wife and daughter joined me in July as we are moving to State College and are awaiting the (very slow) sale of our house in Montana. First, the hotel staff could not be more friendly or accommodating. As an HR professional, i have to compliment the...

This is a great hotel for extended day! I have residents who stay there for an extended period of time during rotations. The staff is very responsive and great to deal with when setting up these stays. They are also very accommodating if we need to make any changes. The residents feel like home when they stay there!

We use this location for employees and interviewees that come to State College from out of town. It is conveniently located in a quieter side of town, but has restaurants and grocery store, as well as other stores close by. The staff is always accommodating and bends over backwards to help us with our reservations.

The staff is excellent, very helpful and pleasant. We were working at the University and needed several rooms for five months. The property is very clean and in in a great location, just minutes from the Penn State. The Mix was a big hit with the guys, a chance to mingle and get a bite to eat. We really enjoyed...

Booked a room on points. The cabinets clearly have not been updated in quite some time, and our dog kept finding things to lick on the carpet which was pretty gross. The carpet had a lot of stains. The room was kind of clean, but the bathroom fixtures were super old as well and the water came shooting out of...

My wife and I stayed here while visiting Penn State, where I previously was an undergraduate student. This hotel is pretty typical for a Residence Inn. It was warm, clean, the reception was friendly and the kitchenette was very convenient. It is located near the intersection of the two major highways in town, so you are a quick drive from...

It was wonderful to have the kitchenette and a spacious room for a multi-night stay. The room was clean and well supplied. The workout room, while small, had all I needed. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The evening treats were nice, especially the ice cream night.

Had a six night business stay. Clean, excellent water temp and pressure. Free breakfast was good and also clean....no variety from morning to morning though. Hampton Inn offers more variety on the breakfasts. I'd stay again if in the area.
