"My experience in State College at the Quality Inn"
I stayed at this hotel whenever I went to the SWAN quarterly in January. It helped make the experience more comfortable and welcoming. They accomplished this through the friendly staff, especially the ladies who worked the front desk and the breakfast ladies. The room was clean, the bathroom was clean, the breakfast food was hot and plentiful. I liked the fact that the room was so modestly priced, and yet so spacious, clean, warm, and inviting. I had two nights of solid sleep without worry. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to save some money and still not sacrifice comfort.

"So Good! What a surprise."
I was participating in a workshop at Penn State. This was one of the recommended hotels, and was well priced at $79 per night, where other recommended places to stay were $40 and $50 dollars more per night. The hotel was conveniently located minutes from the campus.The first plus was the friendliness, efficiency and knowledge of the staff. They were genuinely friendly, and checking in was like talking to friends. It was immediately evident that the hotel was spotlessly clean. I entered my room and it was also spotless, well appointed and much bigger than I expected. It had a free standing cabinet style closet, which I usually don't like, but because of the size of the room the closet was well placed so you could get to it easily, was large enough to hold all my hanging items and also held an iron and ironing board. Two full length mirrors on the doors were easily usable as the closet was well placed within the large room. Comfy easy chair, ottoman and a great desk for my computer with plenty of plugs for chargers etc. rounded out my extremely positive first impression. The bathroom was large and also spotlessly clean, and had nice toiletries along with a sign that if I forgot anything complementary replacements were available at the desk. I was delighted by how comfortable the bed was and by the fine quality of the linens. I slept like a log! Waking up I went down to an absolutely amazing free breakfast buffet, again with a smiling, helpful, friendly staff.

"At least I had a place to sleep..."
When I first walked into the room it smelled a bit like cigarettes. When it was time to shower I noticed the tub could have used some cleaning. I wish the room were cleaner because the staff was pretty good. At least I had a place to sleep. A very hard, stained, uncomfortable mattress that is.

"Great place for a low price!"
The Quality Inn Penn State is the perfect place to stay if you need a place for a night or two. I cannot say enough good things about the staff- we had booked online, but accidentally booked a room with two double beds instead of a king. After we got to our room and realized the mistake, we went back to the desk and they were happy to accommodate the switch. The rooms, while slightly dated (the only reason I'm not giving the hotel condition a perfect 5), were extremely clean and well appointed. I noticed a couple of cracks in the wall under the bathroom sink, but that really didn't bother me at all. Cleanliness IS a big deal to me, and the place was spotless. The beds were comfy, and I was glad that there were complimentary toiletries, as I had neglected to pack some of these (this trip was rather last minute). The second night we stayed there, we ended up having our son with us (also unexpectedly). Again, the staff was happy to switch us yet again, to adjoining rooms. I so appreciated their flexibility and the fact that they never once treated us like we were being a hassle. The hotel also has a complimentary hot breakfast each morning, which was a pleasant surprise given the low price that we paid for our room ($60/night!!). I would definitely stay there again if I needed to go back to the Penn State area.

"Hotel allows dogs - noisy"
The hotel appeared clean enough. We did not realize that it was a hotel that allowed dogs. Obviously we heard a dog barking in the room next to ours periodically through the night. We had some mild allergy issues. If you are a dog lover without allergies, you will like this hotel.

"This place did its job, and I'd return"
This was a perfectly clean, safe, quiet place to spend three nights. (Actually, it wasn't quite as quiet as it could have been, as conversations in the corridor outside my door occasionally came through. Maybe they should put up signs reminding people to use their indoor voices.) The continental breakfast was OK, but it was available until 10:00 a.m., the most important thing in my book. If you want to stock the fridge, there are two supermarkets just up the street.

"Stranded in Penn State PA"
I was stranded on interstate 80 West for over 4 hours on my way back to Michigan. While I was thankful that I was able to call and book a hotel, the staff were unable to give me directions to the hotel from 11 miles away-I exited at the college and the road was closed in both directions. When I called the hotel to ask for directions she was unable to do so, stating that she wasn't from the area. It seems like when the hotel hires employees, that they should be able to pull up map quest directions and give a customer directions. I ended up spending another driving around trying to find the hotel, which was very frustrating.

The stay was very comfortable, rooms were clean, hotel staff are very friendly and helping. The breakfast was great as well. Only thing that bothered me a little was that there were too many dogs accompanied in this hotel. Every time we would leave and come back we hear to past by at least 2 dogs. Maybe a separate part should be there just for pets, so that they can be away from high traffic areas. Otherwise the hotel was great.

"Great Place for 1-2 Nights in State College"
I stayed at this hotel during a recent road trip while stopping over to visit a friend in State College. This hotel was great for what I needed - a safe, comfortable, and inexpensive place to stay the night. I checked in late, and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. While the hotel was definitely not the fanciest, my room was clean and my bed was comfortable. The breakfast was also quite good. I didn't stay long enough to try any of the other amenities, but overall the hotel seemed to be well kept.

Room clean and comfortable. Could use some larger pillows on the beds but overall experience was very good. Was a pet friendly hotel which barking was heard occasionally.

"Don't expect a wake up call"
Overall the hotel is what it is... For the cost & proximity to campus it works - don't expect to get 5 star service. Shower and beds were decent but my biggest complaint is I had a work function early in the AM & asked for a 5:30 wake up call & it never came through. To me, that is a deal breaker, as I've never stayed at a hotel & requested a wake up call & not received it. This was extra annoying since it was a work function. So long Quality Inn.
