Arrived a little ahead of check in ... they checked me right in, NO problem! It was a blizzard - snow, cold, wind; the room was a nice temp to walk in to. Went down to get some coffee ... and they had just brought out cookies (that were still warm / gooey); great touch! Breakfast was amazing ... LOTS...

Courtyard was just renovated last year. Beautiful and inviting decor. Room was up to date styling. Very comfortable. Internet was free and speed was very good. Bistro is great. Food was tasty. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Convenient location. Can't wait to return.

Stayed here in January 2016, while visiting State College for workshop. Was pleased that the room was very clean and furniture and decor was new and stylish. It was also very functional. The only improvement could be the thermostat control. It seemed difficult to adjust the heat level.

Finding a hotel room with 2 king beds in a large (500sf) room is a great bonus for families with teens. This hotel is all fresh and new from a renovation, with the fun curved couch and nice colors in the rooms. I like the small table you can pull up to the couch for your drink, quite convenient. Upon...

My family of 4 stayed here on 7/31 while visiting PSU. We liked the pool and jacuzzi, very relaxing after our long drive. The room was good, close to the elevator, ice machine and drink machine. We had a nice breakfast, and enjoyed our stay. We'll be back for a football game. We are.......Penn State

The family stayed for Arts Fest weekend 2015, and the room was perfect. We had two queen beds and a roll away. All the finishes are very nice everywhere in the hotel. Girls really enjoyed the pool which is a bit bigger than the standard indoor pool you'll find at a hotel. The beds were perfect. Normally "at my age",...

A lot of good things here ... easy reservations, easy check in, CLEAN rooms / hallways / lobby, HUGE breakfast selection, 2 different newspapers, friendly staff. The one downside is that we could hear road traffic at night (jake brake's). Would definitely stay here again! *and being right next to Otto's is a bonus!
