Good enough for our quick weekend in State College

Have stayed here with family or alone many times. The Penn Stater is a modern hotel with friendly staff, very clean, nice spacious rooms, comfortable beds, lots of small and large suites in addition to standard rooms which most often include pull out loveseats. Highly recommend if visiting Penn State. Shuttle bus if needed. A bit removed from the campus but 5 mins away. Overall great place to stay.

Shuttle was so convenient to the game. Ended up booking this at the last minute when our RV company canceled on us. So happy we did

Beautiful, clean, quiet property with excellent staff!...and I work for Walt Disney World where we specialize in guest service! Every staff member we encountered was pleasant and helpful. When I reviewed the hotel after our first night my only complaint was the bed was too firm for me. A couple of hours later I received a call from the hotel allowing me to switch rooms to a room with a Tempur-pedic bed. I LOVED staying at this hotel and will do so again when traveling to Penn State. All the shuttle drivers we had were awesome too (Josh, Ryan, Thomas, Steve, Ben and Alex). The ladies at the front desk were always attentive and genuinely provided advice/suggestions on where to go and what to do when I had questions. I miss the staff already and I’ve only been gone for 16 hours! They have a great operation there at the The Penn Stater! Highly recommend!!!

I like the convenience of having a restaurant which serves decent food inside the hotel.

Immaculate, Beautiful Hotel Staff very professional, Rooms are very clean. Restaurant and facilities very customer friendly

Check in was arduous and since I had a reservation that they charged for 30 days ahead, shouldn't have been a problem. Booked for two nights but had an emergency that required me to leave after the first night, the only response was "You'll forfeit the second night's payment" Not much sympathy.

A dated hotel as our all in state college. Need of a rehab, however the rooms are clean and the staff is nice. No breakfast. Free parking...slow net. Overpriced for what it is

We loved the proximity to the Bryce Jordan Center. There was plenty of free parking at the foot of the entrance to the hotel. The staff was super friendly and got us processed in just minutes. The lobby was so comfortable and had a beautiful fireplace. Then our room was spacious, comfortable, clean, accommodating, and had a beautiful view of the mountains. My son amd I then went down to go enjoy the indoor pool which was large and a lot of fun. Finally an added extra perk was the hotel offered shuttle seevice to and from our concert. We will absolutely be using this hotel again in the future. Extremely pleased.

Service was outstanding and the bed mattress was very comfortable.

A bit over priced. But was available when needed. Rooms are lovely. Area is nice. Close to the college

We reserved a room with two double beds and received a king bed. When I asked to be switched they said no they do not guarantee the room type. They said they were sold out and everyone had checked in and they were no rooms. They said they can give us a rollaway bed which they did but when I point out it was a fire hazard as you couldn’t move around in the room after the rollaway was in the room they did not care. They said they would remove furniture from the room. It was a very unpleasant experience.

Very good. Would stay here again. Great for conferences as well

Enjoyed my stay-Relaxing-Have always appreciated the shuttle bus availability-Thanks!

Nice hotel with nice amenities and good restaurants. Very convenient for visiting Penn State University. Friendly staff.
