Quality Inn Penn State

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Basic clean hotel. I think toothpaste+brush would be good, but there's Waltmart across the street. Found heater noise a bit loud but it's very tolerable. The most frustrating part was weak wifi connections at certain times. Other than this, it's a very good clean hotel for the price.

Very warm and inviting. The nicest Quality Inn we've stayed in.

I can honestly give the hotel my highest recommendation!! The room was clean and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable, the sheets were crisp and the pillows comfortable. The bathroom was big enough, clean and the towels were fluffy. The staff was very welcoming. Bobbi Jo had to talk me in since I have the world's worst sense of direction. Nicole, Colleen and any woman whose name I sadly forget was so nice to speak to you that I truly felt welcome. Ellen took care of the breakfast cafe did a terrific job. The FREE breakfast included waffles, eggs, sausage, bacon, sweet rolls, bagels, toast, coffee and juice!! I saw housekeeping cleaning not just the rooms but also the walls in the hall. I couldn't have asked for more and the price is great. Also the hotel has a very convenient location, close to shops, restaurants, and the highway. Finally, as a single woman, I felt very safe and comfortable.

This was our first stay at the State College location and we were very pleased. The price was right, the staff very friendly and accommodating, the room was large, the A/C was cold, the shower was hot with a powerful shower head. They are very pet friendly and the many walks we took our dog on around the property allowed us to see how well the grounds were cared for as well. We visit State College often to visit family and will be staying here again!

This is my first time staying in Quality Inn and I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I would love to go back when I get a chance.

the hotel is okay. It is very conveient, I think for the location. The cleaness is also okay. We go there for business trip. The price and environment are okay.

The hotel was clean and well maintained. It was easy to find our way around State College from this location. The breakfast staff was very friendly.

What a phenomenal stay my family had here and we are so please we chose this Hotel. The breakfast was phenomenal and they made sure we got plenty even though we were a little late getting there before breakfast ended. The staff was exceptionally kind and made us feel right at home. Thank You. Pet friendly as well.

everything went well until check out day - we are on paleo diet which is why we stayed at the quality inn - breakfast has eggs and sausage or bacon - day two of our stay they ran out by 9:10 - breakfast goes til ten - they kept asking us to wait - which we did until ten- still no eggs!! Bummer - had to leave hungry and go buy breakfast somewhere else

Staff were friendly and helpful. This hotel is very pet friendly and well set-up. The room was pleasant although the air conditioning unit was quite loud.

Great place to stay with Fido. Outdoor areas to walk, and even free dog treats!

Just wonderful, staff couldn't be more helpful and curteous. Breakfast was a treat, awesome evperience with Penn State family for THON weekend! Would definitely come back!

The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Directed us to a really nice restaurant with good food and reasonable prices. Breakfast was above average for a continental breakfast. Only down side was the heat in the room. When the heat wasn't blowing the room got colder quickly.

The overall stay was very nice.. We arrived late but the staff was nice and our room was very comfortable.. The breakfast was pretty good also!!

I'm a Hilton Club member and always stay at a Hilton, had to book late and the Hilton rooms were gone. I eventually chose Quality Inn because I wanted to stay "on the cheap." Pleasantly surprised. This hotel is just as good as the hilton where we usually stay. I'd easily stay there again. The owner/mgr. was on hand at the breakfast "making the rounds." It was a really nice touch that more hotels should do.

even though the hotel was in the middle or remodeling, the hotel was clean. Our room was clean and comfortable. We were close to many restaurants, stores, and the college campus.

I arrived early and had no problem checking in. Room was spotless and very comfortable. My only "complaint" was that there was no outlet available near the nightstand next to the bed.... if you want to call that a complaint. (Note to staff... could be easily remedied if you swap the two lamps because one has an outlet on the base). The staff was very friendly and knowledgable. I almost had to extend my stay due to changing weather conditions and was assured that would not be a problem. I will DEFINITELY consider staying here again!! Treated like a queen for a pauper price! Kudos, Quality Inn staff!

Here to visit my daughter at Penn State. Close to campus, walking distance to many great restaurants. The staff was very friendly and professional, rooms were spacious and comfortable. Will definitely stay here again!!

Stayed here last minute to see Bruce Springsteen at the Bryce Jordan Center. Almost everything was sold out. Easy access to the event, comfortable clean room. Decent breakfast and plenty of other dining options nearby.

room clean well stocked, towels, coffee, soap. food below avadvage eggs like rubber.
