We stayed at the inn when we came to visit family. We couldn't be happier with our room and the inn. We didn't dine there as we ate with family, but the rest of the inn we highly recommend, as always! Thanks for another great stay!

After a recent stay at the Carnegie Inn and spa, we came home relaxed and rejuvenated after a lovely weekend stay. The quiet setting amidst the beautiful countryside provided the perfect place to enjoy friends and the connecting spa added such a plus to the stay. The staff and service was outstanding.

Recommended by friend to stay at this Inn. Was not disappointed at all. Breakfast that was included was made to order. Treated myself to a spa day and was not disappointed. Manager was readily available and pleasant.

Kind older gentleman working the front desk, very helpful. Nice made to order breakfast included in the night, which was at a reasonable rate (about a third the price of the nittany lion while I was there, for a comparable room (size, comfort level). Downside is that the rooms in front face the headlights of cars parking in front. On...

The room was terrific, the service was outstanding and the food was made to perfection. we just took a day trip with a overnight stay and was pleasantly surprised. We had been to the Carnegie house many times over the past 10 years for dinners with friends and business associates and our food was outstanding

This was our first visit. We booked a double room to accommodate our family of 4 and we were pleased that the room was quite spacious and clean. Our only complaint is about the breakfast. We were charged for our sons' breakfast which was supposed to be included. When we made inquiry, we were questioned about whether the boys were...

Returned for PSU homecoming weekend and had a pleasant stay at the inn. We've stayed here before and we were generally pleased once again. The inn is head and shoulders above most hotels in State College. It's a quiet, refined place to get away from the homecoming crowds. A couple of issues with the place that should be noted; no...

Thank you Chef Caleb and Paul for exceptional meals. It's been too long for such a beautiful boutique hotel not to have really fine dining. The staff are alway first class. We look forward to dining here as often as we can. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a fine dining experience.
