Rooms and property are always clean, staff is always friendly, breakfast is always good! I travel a lot for business, so I'm a bit picky. I've stayed here many times and this hands down is my first choice in State College.

This hotel is ideal for staying long term. I have been staying here over the past six months for work and had a very positive experience. The room is like a studio apartment, bigger than what you'll find in most major cities, and it is very close to PSU campus and downtown State College. All of the employees are incredibly...

This is a great hotel for extended day! I have residents who stay there for an extended period of time during rotations. The staff is very responsive and great to deal with when setting up these stays. They are also very accommodating if we need to make any changes. The residents feel like home when they stay there!

We use this location for employees and interviewees that come to State College from out of town. It is conveniently located in a quieter side of town, but has restaurants and grocery store, as well as other stores close by. The staff is always accommodating and bends over backwards to help us with our reservations.
