“Clean and comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2011

We have stayed at this hotel twice. My daughter is a Penn State student so we stayed here during her moving in. The hotel rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable. Very spacious and would certainly accomodate someone for an extended stay. There is a full kitchen, a small living room area and the bedroom area. The first time we stayed the bedroom was separated from the living area by a wall, but the second time, there was no separation. The bathroom is quite small, however there is a separate vanity area outside that is a good size. Only problem is you can not get ready without waking everyon else up beacuse the light will shine into the bedroom area. The complimentary breakfast is fine for a quick bite. It offers the usual fare for hotel free breakfast, and does have some healthier options, like fresh fruit and yogurt. I would not hesitate to stay again if in the area.

When we arrived at 5 pm, they had a little buffet set up with mini quiches, meatballs, pasta salad, soft drinks and desserts. That was a nice welcome. The room was great --- kitchen, living area with an automatic start fireplace, and a jacuzzi in the bathroom --- we were on the 3rd floor. The breakfast was nice --- waffle maker, scrambled eggs, sausage patties, red skin potatoes, juices, yogurts, cereals, bagels, muffins, etc... It was a pleasant way to start your day!

Room Tip: shop around for pricing --- it's right in State College, so you are going to pay more

My extended stay (12 days) was disappointing. About half the nights were disturbed by noisy neighbors overhead. If you must stay here, insist on a third floor room. Room furnishings were frumpy and worn compared with newer Residence Inns. The staff was mostly accommodating and helpful, though the front desk staff didn't even ask how I felt about my stay when I checked out.

Dear dwd1,

I’m very sorry to hear your stay with us wasn’t enjoyable; I regret not knowing about your noisy neighbors as we would have promptly relocated you to quieter room. Please accept my sincere apologies; I understand how frustrating that must have been. I hope this experience doesn’t discourage you from staying with Residence Inn in the future; we appreciate your business and that you took the time to share your review.

Best regards,

Shane Niman, General Manager

I would certainly stay here again. I liked the location, on the edge of town, and everything about the room was comfortable.

We recently visited State College for a YHEC state event. I loved that it was so close to town, campus and the Scotia shooting range where we spent most of Saturday. We did make a stop both nights we stayed at the creamery on campus. It's to die for. Lines moved quickly and they're open late.
When we arrived the first thing I noticed was the landscaping. They could really use a mulch delivery. There were weeds everywhere. They had gorgous impatients mixed in with the jungle. The entryway was very inviting with the wooden rockers and nice flowers.
We arrived at the standard check-in time and our room was ready for us. The front desk clerk was cheerful.
Our room [203] was a 1 bed suite. Our 11 year old slept on the pull-out.As always I LOVE the bed. That's why I became a Marriot member. It's like sleeping on a cloud. I just don't understand why they had mauve curtains??The room is decorated in the standard marriot green and rust theme. They really didn't match well. Other than that it was very clean.
My son used the pool alot we also enjoyed the patio area.Great patio furniture with a fireplace in the center.
Breakfast was very good. A little better than most hotels. The breakfast employee was very attentive and kept the area very clean.
I would definately stay here next year when we come back !
