I would highly recommend this hotel for business or pleasure. The rooms were nice and the staff was extremely pleasant. Jason, who worked the front desk, was especially helpful upon arrival and mad us feel welcome throughout our stay. Only good things to say abut this hotel.

Pros: check in was quick and easy All the staff, from the front desk to the person helping with breakfast were beyond friendly and helpful Great,...

We stay at Marriotts often when visiting Penn State. I have had good experiences with the Residence Inn, and poor ones. This was a poor one. Upon check in we were not given an upper floor (as always requested) and received a bit of attitude from one of the check in ladies. The other quickly took over, saw there was...

I've stayed at the State College Residence Inn dozens of times over the past 8 years, including a 3-month extended stay. Alicia and her staff are friendly, welcoming and always take time to accommodate special requests. The property is undergoing a complete refresh, which is mostly complete. A few of the not-yet-renovated suites are a bit dated, but they are...

Very pleasant staff. The best thing I have to say is the room was clean. Unfortunately the beds in our room were extremely uncomfortable. The queen bed was very unsteady and any movement made the whole bed sway. Our sofa bed was not made up and although we weren't expecting a sofa bed to be very comfortable, this one was...

Negative Issues: The rooms in this particular property are in need of a major overall. The room smelled of carpet deodorizer. Exactly what smell are they trying to cover up? The carpets are cheap.
