We would definitely stay here again! The front desk personnel were always friendly and chatty! Rooms were fine, and they allowed my visiting sister to sleep on the pull-out couch with out an extra fee. No freebie breakfast here, but the foods cooked to order in the bistro were well worth the prices paid. Great variety from yogurt, eggs n...

Although there was a bit of a glitch at check-in re: a king bed vs. 2 doubles (bring your printed confirmation!) it was more than adequately resolved with a room upgrade at no extra cost. The pool and whirlpool are absolutely lovely and the restaurant is simple yet has delicious food. They even let us purchase the room's blanket which...

They have redone the lobby so it has the new bistro feel and the food and staff are very good. The rooms are old and need some serious updating and were a bit dirty, shower had mold door has stains on it and the curtains were ripped. Not up to courtyard standards.

Stayed here with a group for a wedding. Appeared clean and tidy, but a bit run down. Opened the heavy room darkening drapes to look out the window and noticed perhaps 20 or so shredded tears in the sheer under curtains. Likely from years of use and the sun weakening the material, but for God's sake spend the $20 or...

CAROL13LongIsland_NY, Thank you for writing a review from your recent visit to State College. I would like to take this time to personally apologize for the condition of the sheers in our guestroom. Your observations were certainly on target and the condition of these sheers is unacceptable and not typical of our hotel and the product we strive to deliver....

We stay here once a year and my whole family loves it. You know it is good when you keep coming back. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Rooms and public areas are always clean. They have the cleanest hotel pool I have ever experienced.

The hotel staff were very accommodating and friendly. The hotel was clean and the location of the hotel was nice (easy to get into and out). I went there as part of a yearly family trip for New Years and they were able to get all six rooms together and/or connected. The food is good.

I stayed here during a football weekend. The location is very convenient to Beaver Stadium in that you have a fairly direct, but low traffic route.

This hotel is dated and could use a face lift. But it's a fine hotel and the good customer service makes up for the lack of updates. Each room comes with a refrigerator and microwave which is a nice convenience as well. Plenty of parking, decent gym and quiet area while still being convenient to the university, shopping and dining.

I really enjoyed my overnight stay at the State College Courtyard. The staff was excellent! I got great dinner and breakfast recommendations. Had two wonderful meals while in town. The room was very clean, even had a Jacuzzi tub! Was not expecting that for the low price. Very good value.
