We generally had a very good experience at this hotel. We were only here for one night so that my daughter could attend something at Penn State. This hotel is fairly close to the campus -- about a 5 minute drive -- but not really within walking distance. There was not much in the immediate neighborhood of the hotel although...

My husband and I spent one night here for our anniversary. Being winter, we didn't want to plan anything too extravagant. But this felt extravagant anyway! Excellent location. Nic at the front desk really made our stay awesome by getting us into the room we really wanted--cannot thank this young man enough. There were delicious cookies in the beautiful lobby...

If you need to stay in the Penn State area, this is the place to be. Great Location, great facilities, and a fabulous staff. My family stayed here on a week visit and it was very comfortable and felt like home. Try the microbrewery Happy Valley right across the street for some Tailgaiter Beer and great food.

The front desk attendant was very helpful in giving us connecting rooms and combining two different reservations so that we did not have to change rooms halfway through our stay. Rooms are always clean and comfortable.

My wife and I spent the night at Country Inn and Suites -- and loved it. Everything about making the reservation (we called them directly), locating hotel, checking in and getting to the room was super easy. Check in was quick and the woman helping us was very friendly. The room is huge and the bed is really big. Lots...
