    Great hotel with crappy parking

    The hotel was super cute. Our only complaint was how difficult parking was. It was a real nightmare and they didn't offer valet parking either.

    Great location and service that needs updating

    Great location in town and convenient. Staff were nice and very helpful but the elevators were old and slow. No bikes were available which we had planned to use. Room was comfortable and clean but we both found the decor distracting and unattractive.

    Wonderful Stay at The Graduate in State College

    Great location, staff friendly and helpful, decor is fantastic! Also super clean. Loved that the shampoo, conditioner, and body wash is in refillable bottles; much better for environment.

    First Time at The Graduate

    This was our first time staying since it was renovated and rebranded to The Graduate. The room was spacious and comfortable and the staff friendly and accommodating. I would definitely book there again.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The hotel looks very well kept up. The room was clean and it was dog friendly. The only concern I had was that the lobby was on the 2nd floor so anyone could get in the elevator on the ground floor and go directly to any floor.

    Disappointing

    Was there for graduation weekend, so spending over $600 a night. No maid service after the first night. Body wash ran out. These are basic $100 a night hotel expectations.

    College move out stay

    First time staying there . The room is big and loved the toiletries provided. The only thing ... the mattresses were very soft to the point of being uncomfortable . The staff at the front desk were very friendly and check-in and out was quick and easy . I would definitely stay again
