We had two rooms for the weekend. We've been there before and we were pleased to see the rooms remodeled! Very clean and overall great experience! The staff was very friendly and helpful considering how busy they were over a football weekend!

Stayed here for one night with 3 kids fro PSU Basketball game. Room was clean, with a reasonable rate. Only 1 mile to Beaver Ave and stadiums. Lobby bar open late enough to wind down while kids were in roomo surfing free internet. Would definitely stay here again.

This Courtyard by Marriott is similar to other Courtyard hotels. It had a nice 'bistro', pool, hot tub, exercise room. The bathroom in my room was just acceptable (small tub/shower, small counter, sink outside). The room was quite nice (as usual for a Courtyard). The hotel is close to quite a few amenities. Restraints, drug store, supermarket, etc. Only about...

We found the Courtyard to be a step up from most hotels in the State College area. The rooms were quite spacious, clean & very comfortable. We stayed twice: a Thurs & Mon night. It was remarkably quiet despite the number of guests. Small but very nice pool area. Although it is well off-campus, you can choose to drive or...

Stayed here during a Penn State tour. Its close to campus (about 1 mile) easy to get to and from. Staff is friendly, rooms were clean and quiet. They have a small bistro type food service in lobby. Had breakfast there, and enjoyed it. I would stay here again if I return.

Just got home from a Penn State football weekend. Decor and ambiance is what you would expect for a Courtyard. Staff was great and very accommodating. Indoor pool and spa. Price was outrageous, approximately 4x the non football price but that's to be expected. BTW we won!

I have stayed at a billion Marriott properties, mainly Courtyards, and this one is very nice. You can tell it was remodeled recently. The staff was friendly and the room was comfortable. Not much else to say. I would stay here again if in the area.
