"Great stay"

18/09/2018

Excellent stay. We went to the Elton John concert and spent the night at this hotel. It was great. My husband was pleased with the breakfast. Also pleased that the shirt he left in the room was returned so quickly.

"Good overall"

18/09/2018

My family and I stayed from the home opener of the football season for 2 nights. Hotel was good and one of the nicest best westerns I have stayed at. They were not prepared for the full house they had however. Breakfast was slim pickings due to only having one person working and not able to keep food coming for the numerous people coming down for breakfast. The food we did have was good though, especially the waffle you can make yourself! Overall good experience but definitely could use some improvements

14/09/2018

First time staying here. Hotel and rooms were clean. Pool and hot tub were good. Breakfast was great. The guy in charge of breakfast was fantastic, if he wasn't refilling food he was making sure the area was cleaned. Friendly staff. Overall great experience. Will be back again.

"Always stay here when visiting family"

4
08/09/2018

We regularly stay at this hotel when visiting family in the area. Friendly and accommodating staff, clean room, nice pool and exercise room, very good complimentary breakfast. Easy to adjust room temperature. Only negative is sounds from rooms upstairs, next door, and out in the hall are heard in your room, but if you keep a fan blowing at all times it's not an issue. Good hotel for the price. We will stay here again.

SamanthaStanton, General Manager at Best Western Plus University Park Inn & Suites, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at our hotel! I am so glad you enjoyed our complimentary breakfast, indoor pool, and fitness center.

"Great option for home games"

4
07/09/2018

We had a delightful stay here. The rooms were clean, beds were incredibly comfortable, breakfast was always good. Less than five mike drive to campus, surrounded by great food options and enough off the beaten track to not be caught in the rush of it all. Highly recommend. Our room was just a bit dark as two of the lights didn't work.

SamanthaStanton, General Manager at Best Western Plus University Park Inn & Suites, responded to this review
Thank you for the great review of our hotel! We truly take pride in providing a clean and comfortable room for our guests! I am so glad you enjoyed our convienent location to campus and our hot complimentary breakfast during your stay. We look forward to seeing you again in the future for Penn State home football games!

"Better than expected!!"

05/09/2018

Did not have a reservation on a Saturday night but the young man at the front desk was exceptional. I was lucky there was a room available and he asked what floor I'd like and he suggested the 2nd floor at the end of the hall as it would be quieter. Nice, clean room and comfortable bed. Bathroom was clean and modern. Breakfast was nothing special but they had a good variety to offer. Will stay here

"Fantastic Hotel"

5
04/09/2018

This hotel was fantastic. Lobby is beautiful. Rooms are very nice and super clean. The beds were very comfortable and the pool and hot tub are small but nice. The breakfast was great even for me who hates breakfast usually. They have good coffee, Tazo teas, yogurt bar, waffles, eggs, etc. I was very impressed overall.

We always look forward to staying at this hotel. It is our favorite Best Western to date. The room is always so clean and very roomy. The kids love the pool area. This is our second year staying here for the Grange Fair and we are already planning next years stay.

"One of the nicest Best Westerns I've experienced"

5
30/07/2018

My daughter and I stayed here one night on our way home from vacation. The hotel was spacious, clean, well decorated and had friendly, helpful staff. The room was very up to date and clean. We had a nice sized mini fridge and microwave. The bathroom was very nice and clean with nice smelling soap. The lighting was good and the counters appeared to be granite (or faux granite). I appreciated the magnified mirror for putting on my eye makeup and the special dark towel for washing off makeup. The beds were comfortable. My only complaint is that the people above us (we were on the 3rd floor) were walking very heavily and a quite often on our ceiling until well after midnight. Other than that the hotel was quiet. It was perfect for our one night stay. The breakfast area was roomy compared to many I have experienced. The attendant was friendly and kept everything clean and well stocked. I would definitely stay here again if I were in the area.

"Penn State Visit"

5
28/07/2018

We stayed the night before visiting Penn State, and it was perfect for that. Turns out, plenty of other lodgers were also visiting, and the complimentary breakfast made conversation amongst travelers quite easy. Everyone was friendly and chatty. Room was clean (although the door was quite tricky and did NOT want to open!), with plenty of space for all of us to spread out. Bathroom and vanity were all in one place, but everything was clean and functioning. Front desk staff was pleasant and helpful. We'd definitely stay there again when in the neighborhood.

"Clean, quiet hotel away from downtown but close enough to everything you'll need to do in State College."

4
28/07/2018

This hotel is away from the noise and clamor of downtown but a five minute drive to Penn State or anywhere else you'd probably need to get to on a business or pleasure trip. The room was spacious and had a microwave and refrigerator. Also offered a free full breakfast in the morning. If you're planning a business trip to State College you'd be wise to look into this hotel.

"Great night before PSU visit."

27/07/2018

It was a short drive to the PSU campus from this new hotel. It's close to lots of shoppers big and restaurants. Check in went smoothly. We found the hotel to be very clean and quiet. Our room was fantastic with a very comfortable bed. Spacious room with king bed. Breakfast was your standard fare but the dining room manager kept everything well stocked and promptly cleaned up any spills. Better than expected coffee.

"Everything Very Nice"

12/07/2018

Our room was pleasing, as was excellent breakfast. Location convenient to Penn State and State College restaurants. Our trip included reconnaissance to check out Trough Creek State Park and Raystown Lake, both within an hour or so of the hotel. Other state parks in the area include Black Moshannon, Bald Eagle, Reed's Gap and Poe's Valley.

06/07/2018

Everything about our stay was great! Friendly staff, a spacious room with a comfortable bed, refrigerator & microwave. The hot tub & pool were relaxing. Best breakfast I've had at a hotel. Eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, toppings for oatmeal, yogurt...and so much more. Affordable and I definitely recommend!!!

"Great place!"

5
03/07/2018

This was overall a great place. We are a part of the rewards program, so upon entering we received a gift bag with some goodies in it; a pleasant surprise! Our room was very clean and spacious. Our room was equipped with all the usual amenities, as well as a little kitchen area with a counter, microwave, and fridge. We also had a living area with a sofa, chair, and coffee table. We had a large screen HDTV which was also nice. The bed was very comfortable and extra pillows were in the closet if needed. The hotel is energy efficient, and it was nice that the air/fan didn't run all night. The only issue I had (and this is by no means a complaint) was in the bathroom. The shower head couldn't be pushed down, so the water went to the very back of the shower/bath. Breakfast was great. Lots of selections to choose from. My husband said they had the best Belgian Waffles he had every eaten. I really enjoyed the eggs and potatoes. They had any topping you could think of for each and every food they had. No complaints there!

"Comfortable But Gross Food"

27/06/2018

I had to travel to Penn State for a work-related conference. I found the staff to be friendly, the location to be ideal, and the room to be comfortable. However, the breakfast was quite vile, even for hotel food. Would consider staying again, but will skip breakfast.

26/06/2018

Very much enjoyed the breakfast. Many items to choose from and the staff was very friendly. Hotel was clean. The only problem that was not resolved was the air conditioning unit for the one end of the hallway. Was very noisy. Was told there was nothing they could do about it. This was the only thing that holds it back from a 5. Easy access to mall, restaurants and food shopping.

Room was comfortable, clean. Breakfast very good, sorry that I do not like Turkey bacon.

This place seems to be fairly new. Room was very nice! The breakfast, that was included, was also very good. The staff was knowledgeable and accommodating. Don't have anything but a very good review of this hotel. Our stay here was made a bit more enjoyable knowing that we paid A LOT LESS than others who also attended the Happy Volley Tourney. We would stay here again: no question.

"Memorial Day Weekend"

29/05/2018

The hotel was beautiful and kept clean. The staff were very pleasant to deal with during the 4 days we were there. The breakfast was fresh and delicious. There are 2 items I wish to bring to your attention: 1) It's not only your hotel but really all hotels. I wish all hotels gave an option of soft or firm beds because as lovely as the hotel was by the 3rd night both of our backs were killing us and we were happy not to have to sleep another night on the soft bed. I know you can't please everyone but when you have a long drive home and you had 3 nights of tossing and turning it makes for a very long drive. 2nd: We checked in on Friday and only on Sunday did we ask for fresh clean towels and we left the other wet dirty towels on the floor to be taken out. When I took a shower on Monday and I reached for what I thought would be a

The hotel is fairly new and offers amenities such as indoor pool, jacuzzi, free breakfast, and wifi. The hotel is very eco-friendly. The bathroom needed a few repairs. The hot water faucet wouldn't shut off. The ceiling was recently repaired yet there was a need for patching the plaster and paint. The faucet was repaired the next day.

Honestly, the rooms here are better than the Nittany Lion Inn. We had 2 queen beds and plenty of room for 3 of us to spread out. Bathroom was very clean too. Beds are very comfortable. We all slept great. Service was terrific. Side note - Coffee isn't so good (I am a fan of strong coffee) and the breakfast choices not as good as the Hampton Inn.

Very clean, almost new, and with a friendly staff. Close to all the state college events but without the claustrophobia. The hotel is a short distance along Shiloh Rd, exiting off I-99. The Nittany Mall is nearby. Sheets is within walking distance for a quick gas up and caffeine recharge before hitting the road. It was a little pricey for the venue, but it was Blue and White Game / Paterno Run weekend. Stay with confidence.

We stayed here last week while visited our children who are students at Penn State. We have stayed at this property more than ten times, as we are Diamond Select members, and always have points to spend. I must say that this past time was our best stay ever! First, we were welcomed by Samantha at the front desk with "I see that you are Diamond Select members..we want to thank you very much for your patronage!" This was the first time ever at this property that we were recognized as such, and we appreciated it. Another "first" at this property was that Samantha had a suite available, which she offered to us..double bonus!Thanks! We always request an upper floor room, but usually never get one. This time Samantha saw our request and we got a 4th floor (top) room. And the room was spotless too. Our last few stays at this property besides this one have not been great. In fact, we stayed elsewhere while in the area because of the condition of our room, and the fact that our requests were never recognized. This stay put our faith back in not only Best Western, but State College hotels as well. We will be back, and big shout out to the professionalism of Samantha!

In this day and age, it is next to impossible to find the level of customer service we experienced at Best Western Plus. Our check in person, Samantha, was so helpful in sorting out and handling our complication (mistake on our end). She was such a pleasure and totally competent. She saved us time and money, not to mention stress. We had a lovely stay overnight. I will only be using this hotel to visit with our Penn State daughter moving forward.

12/02/2018

I love this hotel. It was our second stay here. The rooms are comfortable, clean and well appointed. Love the Bath and Body Works amenities! The breakfast was good and plentiful. The hotel staff is friendly and professional. My biggest complaint was noise! We were right beside the stairwell and could hear everybody talking on the steps, in the hall and the door slamming all night long. Plus, unfortunately, we were under people who kept making lots of noise until about 2:00 am. Called the front desk to ask them to be a bit quieter and nothing changed. I honestly don't think the front desk called them at all. Considering nobody in our room (there were three of us) got a good nights rest, I cannot give the hotel a five star review. That's a shame, because other than the noise, they deserve it.

Vicky B, Director of Sales at Best Western Plus University Park Inn & Suites, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to review your most recent stay with us. We are glad to hear you had a fairly great stay with us. We are so sorry to hear you had issues with noise during your stay. I do assure you that we take every guest concern seriously and address them appropriately. Our typical procedure for noise complaints is to call up to the room via phone and ask them to please quiet down and be respectful of our other guests, upon second complaint we would of gone up and knocked on the door of the guest causing the noise. We do hope you will give us another try in the future, please feel free to request the 4th floor away from the stairs where there are no guests above you.

Parking lots were not cleared of ice, especially in the handicap parking area. Since I just had a knee replacement, I am very cognizant of safety. The bathroom floor is ice cold,too! Good location and easy to find. Aside from the safety issue, it is fine.

13/01/2018

I stayed in the BW for two nights. When I checked in I was extremely tired from a long day.... I had a bad case of brain fog! The check-in was easy and the young woman who checked me in was so kind and patient! She suggested I park out back....offered to meet me at the back entrance with a luggage cart and even waited while I loaded it so she could help with the door. Very helpful. Within five minutes of checking into my room I locked myself out! The same woman was very kind and got me a new key immediately. My room was a single King room and for the most part was perfect. The only complaint I would make is that the ottoman for the chair was filthy. I laid a towel over it and one over the back of the chair. My bed was comfy, heating was perfect.... the hallway outside my room was pretty chilly. Breakfast was just fine.... the staff running breakfast was super friendly. Other staff that I interacted with were all very friendly and eager to help or answer questions.

"Pleasant Comfortable Stay!"

12/01/2018

We were upgraded to a suite which was much appreciated. Our room was large with king bed and a shorter divider wall that gave bed a bit of privacy from the couch - living room area. The bed was probably the most comfortable we have slept on in quite awhile while traveling. Room was very quiet and clean. The breakfast area was also one of the best we have seen at a Best Western. I particularly liked the big variety of fruit selections, and the muffins were the BEST! Everything was kept fresh and clean and the employee working was friendly & pleasant :) Will definitely be back when in the area next time!

"Staff and Barhroom Exhaust"

4
07/01/2018

I want to compliment the staff on being professional and welcoming. Its refreshing to see someone pay respect even late in the evening. I truly applaud his professionalism. There really should be an exhaust fan in the bathroom. All the moisture, as a result of taking a shower prohibits the use of the mirrors and breeds a lot of mold that would wreck a few day stay. I saw a vent but either there was a fan and it was broken or there was no fan at all.

Vicky B, Guest Relations Manager at Best Western Plus University Park Inn & Suites, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to review your most recent stay with us. We do not have individual exhaust fans in our bathrooms. There are vents which go to a centrally located unit which extracts the exhaust from all of the bathrooms in the hotel. We are glad to see you had a nice stay and that you enjoyed our friendly staff. We hope you will keep us in mind in the future. Happy Travels!

We always stay here when visiting the area, at least twice a year. It is centrally located, clean, quiet and affordable. Breakfast is included, of course there is a waffle maker, gotta have that. I would recommend staying on the top floor, the 4th, but you might have to wait for the elevator, only one and housekeeping uses it also.

Overall a great place! We were there for our son's wedding. When they discovered my son was the groom, they upgraded his room! They gave us snacks and drinks to make up for the trashcan in our room not being empty upon arrival. They were pleasant and helpful. One problem. Cleaning staff entered our room Without Knocking while I was undressing. I assume she thought we had checked out already. Not a pleasant experience. Learned my lesson to lock doors at all times. Front desk took $20 off my bill for that mistake. I think a free stay would have been more appropriate for that kind of "mistake" Unacceptable! But otherwise I would recommend to friends to stay here. Just lock doors at all times!

Thank you for taking the time to review your most recent stay with us. Congratulations to your son on his recent wedding. I am so sorry to hear you had some problems while here at the hotel. Our staff are trained to knock and announce themselves before entering a room, even if we know the room is vacant. We are researching further into this issue and will coach the staff member appropriately. I certainly understand your frustrations and do hope you will give us another try in the future. I would like to chance to make things right. Please feel free to reach out to me directly.

Ok hotel, room, pool and hot tub . I think the breakfast could be better quality. The money I paid I should have had better breakfast.the hotel is better than most. The sliding door to the closet was hard to open, the housing to the heater was loose.its a fairly new hotel and it already shows wear in the room, the hallways a very cold. I realize they did that to save money on heating.when you are walking from the pool to your room it is very very cold.

Thank you for taking the time to review your most recent stay with us. I'm so sorry you did not enjoy breakfast. We would love your feedback on what we could change or improve to make breakfast better. We are always trying new options to try to make our guest experience better. As far as your closet and the housing to the heater I have informed maintenance and we will have these fixed immediately. The temperature in the hallways I believe are all set to 72 however with the colder weather I will speak to maintenance to see if we can up the temperatures in our public areas so they do not feel as chilly especially when coming from our pool area. We hope you will consider staying with us again in the future. Happy Travels!

Hotel was clean, had friendly staff, and there were very good breakfast options (included with stay). Coffee was surprisingly good compared to most free hotel coffee, and was available 24 hours.

We stayed here for two nights over the Thanksgiving holiday. The check-in staff and other hotel staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and very clean. Unfortunately the bed was very uncomfortable as it was too hard which is why I am giving this hotel three stars rather than four. Another minor annoyance was there is no exhaust fan in the bathroom nor a stopper in the sink which made my husband's shaving process somewhat difficult. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet, which is typical of this type of hotel. It was well prepared and presented with lots of good choices. I really wish hotels would supply their rooms with a decent coffee maker and good coffee. The dinky little coffee maker supplied is a joke. I prefer to have my coffee before I have to interact with other humans.

Thank you for taking the time to review your most recent stay with us. I am so very sorry to hear you found the beds to be uncomfortable and that the sink stopper was missing in your room.

As far as the coffee makers, our apologies that the one provided was not to your liking, we are always making room upgrades and improvements so perhaps this amenity will change in the future. We do offer free hot coffee in our lobby, that I've been told is quite good 24 hours a day. We do hope you will consider giving us another chance in the future. Happy Travels!

There are not many real hotels in the state College area. Most of them are of this type or something like a Quality Inn or others of that level. Never having stayed at a Best Western before i was not sure what to expect. Ultimately, it was no better or worse than any of the other similar ones in the area - Quality Inn, Choice Hotels, etc. If you are not staying at the Nittany Lion Inn, the Hilton Garden Inn, or the New Hyatt Place then this hotel along with the others i mentioned are certainly fine. No problems.

Zac at Front Desk was great and so was hotel. Sat. a.m. I called Front Desk. No answer. Stopped by front desk, no one there, phones ringing. Asked Housekeeping staff who was in area about Front Desk staff. She went looking. Five minutes later, a young lady appears, smelling like smoke. I asked her what time is mail picked up. She didn't know. Informed me about a mailbox outside. Walked outside. Didn't see mailbox. Again no one at Front Desk, Asked a Housekeeper to find her. Same lady appeared few mins. later.Told her I didn't see mailbox. She went outside with me and pointed it out. Housekeeper knocked on door at 11:40 a.m.. Check out is at 12 noon. We had Do not disturb sign on door. Why is she knocking? She never spoke to us in the hallway. When elevator door opened on 3rd fl., Housekeeper said "good morning". We usually leave a tip in room, but not yesterday. .

Hotel is a nice cookie cutter type of Best Western. Normally we rate places like this as 3 star but the employees are really a cut above and the place is located very close to campus and Penn State attractions. If we visited Happy Valley again this would be our go to place.

I haven't stayed in a Best Western for years because they did not really meet my standards. But I found this location in a coupon book at the Welcome Center, and when I saw the list of amenities, I decided to give it a try. The breakfast was fantastic; so was the indoor swimming pool (very warm) and the hot tub. The bedding was very nice, and the room amenities (sofa, desk, fridge, microwave) were a nice addition to the room. I would recommend this facility.

My kids had off school for a few days so we decided to stay here one night to use the pool and hang out. The room (queen suite) had plenty of space for our family of 5. The room and bathroom was very clean. My kids enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tub. The fitness center was well equipped. Every staff member we encountered was friendly. The breakfast staff had smiles on their face and a good morning! for everyone. The breakfast offerings were just ok. Eggs, sausage and potatoes. There are make your own waffles (always a hit with my kids). We didn't try the pancakes but there was fresh fruit, oatmeal, yogurt and breads. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area.

"This place needs a facelift, wish rewards customers were treated better"

14/10/2017

I have been coming here for about four years, as I have children at Penn State. Having achieved Best Western's highest rewards level, Diamond Select, I have used my points for stays here. The last five visits have not been so great. Firstly, the points system seems messed up. It usually costs about 30,00 points per night for a football weekend (2 night minimum). But upon looking to book a regular Sunday night, it was 39,000 points. This is outrageous for a $100 per night rate. Even though I have the points for a free night, I would rather spend money to stay somewhere else rather than use this many points. Also, upon checking in, there is no special welcome for being a rewards member (no "thank you" or any type of recognition at all. We came to check in and were thirsty, and were charged $2 per bottle of water at the front desk. Other chains would give rewards members or other guests them to you for free, or have water available with the coffee in the lounge. I always request an upper floor when I reserve a room, and have not received this request once in the past two years. I was up all night by someone walking around nonstop in the room above me from midnight until 6am. The rooms are getting old. The carpets are stained and the wallpaper is peeling off the walls in the bathrooms. Mildew stains on the walls in the bath as well. The air conditioning is very loud. Light fixtures often do not work. Maid service is usually good however, as my bedding always seems to smell and appear clean. I like the coffee they have available for guests, but I do not eat the breakfast anymore because I prefer to go to the Waffle Shop instead. There are better hotels available in State College, but I will continue to come here to use my points if the points value is realistic.

Vicky B, Guest Relations Manager at Best Western Plus University Park Inn & Suites, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to review your most recent stay with us. Our sincerest apologies that you were not recognized as a Diamond Select Member. We always try to give our Diamond Select members a room upgrade, as well as offer an option of drinks and snacks from the market place, or extra bonus points upon arrival. I sincerely apologize that this did not happen and I am arranging a meeting with all the desk staff to address how we should properly greet and treat our valued members. Our points redemption, unfortunately is not controlled at property level so unfortunately depending on the events we had last year in October, it affected how many points would be needed for the whole month of October this year. We hope they will consider making changes to how this is done in the future, hopefully a day to day redemption amount based on our daily rate in the future. As far as location of your room we would be happy to try to accommodate requests at check in depending on what rooms we have available, we do apologize that you had difficulties sleeping due to noisy guests above you. As far as maintenance we have been working on having our carpets cleaned, repainting and fixing wallpaper, we just replaced all of our tvs, and our wifi, as well as some of our in room lamps. We do hope you will consider giving us another try in the future, and we would welcome any further feedback in regards to breakfast so that we may improve it moving forward for all of our guest. We certainly value your feedback and business, as well as loyalty to our brand and we will use the information you provided to better our day to day operations.

Overall, very good. Liked beds and room was clean and everything operated well in room. Only criticism was that the eggs, ham potatoes were cold at breakfast. Coffee was good. Upon check in, the person at desk was very personable and offered a choice of rooms based on floor and quietness. We were pleased we could get a top floor with a quiet room.

The staff at the front desk, and during the complimentary breakfast were excellent. Clean room and with a nice comfortable bed.

My son was at South Health recovery after brain surgery. The staff were accommodating to my needs for the three weeks I was at the Best Western. The housekeepers were very thorough in cleaning my room. The continental breakfast was very good and helped me start my day. Dry-cleaning was available and the washer/dryer were free of charge. The location was very close to State College. All in all, it was a good place to feel safe and are for during the three weeks of my son's rehabilitation. Thank you!

Breakfast could've provided better quality food and choices. Sausage, ham or some other breafast meat in addition to turkey bacon. English muffin to toast would've been nice as well. The Best Western here in Westminster MD had a chef making omelets the last time I stayed there and it was amazing! Very impressive and a delicious way to start the day. An English muffin to toast would've been nice as well.Otherwise very pleased. Best Western is my number one choice when traveling.

"Excellent, marvelous hotel - 4 1/2 stars"

22/08/2017

Marvelous, great hotel much better than your regular 4. Our room was large and spotlessly clean with every up-to-date amenity I have ever seen. I marvelled at the room-key-controlled electricity for the room that allows the hotel to be green and save on wasted energy. The climate control in the room was perfect. We never had to touch it. The bed was comfortable, although the pillows could have used more life/firmness. The bathroom includes a swinging makeup/shaving magnifier mirror that is a fantastic feature. Also notable are a separate navy blue makeup towel that allows the comfy bath and hand towels to stay white and last longer. thw ater was hot and the shower is nice. Included in the room rate (which is lower than comparable hotels in the area) is a hot self-serve breakfast with a wide variety, including waffles, pancakes, eggs, potatoes, meat and more. The pool was clean,the water temperature was perfect, and there was a hot tub. The exercise room is not huge but had, I think, four machines. The staff was tremendously friendly. The biggest negative to this hotel are the stains on the carpets in our room and throughout the hotel. The location is quiet and there is little within walking distance. A replacement of the stained carpets would raise my rating to a 5.

Stayed here this past weekend. Staff was very accommodating, helpful and overall nice. The room was spacious with mini fridge, microwave and coffeemaker. The temperature control was great and worked better than most to keep the room at a constant temp. Hot breakfast was typical, although the kids loved the whipped cream and toppings they were able to put on their waffles. The pool was tiny and water was cloudy. Next morning the pool was closed because the chemicals were "off." We were at the end of the hallway and the AC in the hall was right outside our door. It was loud, but not enough to be disruptive to our time in the room. Location was close to the college - maybe a 10 minute drive. Would definitely stay here again.

I was expecting something a bit more modest and was surprised to see a very nice new modern Hotel with more than enough amenities, a competitive price, a very good continental breakfast and a friendly staff. The only thing keeping me from giving five stars, was my 3:30 am wake up from an alarm clock that apparently had not been reset. The front staff person was apologetic and did not make excuses, telling me that it was their fault for not resetting the alarm and he would speak with his manager in the morning to see what he could do for my inconvenience. Stuff happens and it shows a lot of Integrity when someone takes ownership of a mistake and doesn't try to shift some of the blame on the customer.

This stay was necessary to help our daughter and her girls prepare for their move upon her husband's graduation from PS. The BW was very close to their apartment and provided the necessary lodging after all the furniture was gone. The necessary cleaning was needed and after spending the day cleaning it was great to come back to a clean and very comfortable room. Everything was just great. Thanks for making our stay successful and very nice.

We used to stay at Best Western but they were getting old and tired.... but not this one!!! Fabulous property with all of the amenities. Breakfast is great, the hotel staff is great, the location is super great, the value for the room is great and if you like being Eco friendly so do they. The bathroom in the room we stayed was put together that made it functional.....but the design and construction is challenged. Bathroom notwithstanding, we will book this property when we come back even if it is out of our way.

Rooms are clean and spacious, staff very nice. Breakfast also very good for this type of hotel (self service breakfast - pancakes, waffles, eggs, sausage, oatmeal, etc.). Location is very close to some restaurants and a Sheetz gas station/convenience store and it's easy access to Penn State, football games, and the highway. It's great that rooms come with a small fridge.

We were in need of an overnight stay on our way back from Philadelphia to Toledo. They honored a coupon I had for the room. The room was very spacious with tall ceilings, large chair, plenty table room, microwave, bathroom was standard size. We had a first floor room near the lobby. The only complaint we had was the walls seemed thin, as the morning noise was very noticeable. Breakfast was good, staff was very accommodating. It appears they took great pride in cleanliness as there was a lot of staff in the morning cleaning various areas of the hotel. Would definitely stay again for the price and quality of the hotel!

Both this one and BW in Gainsville Florida are fun but must select BW carefully as not all come up to the standards of these two. Run by different people so different attitudes. Arrived after 9 pm, the girl on the desk told us all about the area...had been flooded few months back, and explained about the university. A Denny's restaurant is attached and we had a decent meal there. Waitress took time to chat. Room was excellent, fantastic TV, the latest out there. Beds were fine. When we left a different girl gave us a map of the university...might be referred to as college. Great time. Thanks.

15/05/2017

Good news: we arrived early and were able to check in early. Appreciated that and front desk staff very pleasant and helpful. Bed comfortable, room clean, but furniture shabby and upholstered pieces stained. Bad news: (1) bathroom door locked from outside repeatedly and required help from the desk in the form of a wire hanger to get in. (2) on the first morning of a two night stay bed was made but full trash cans in room and bathroom were not emptied, glasses and coffee cups not replaced, and wet towels not removed from bathroom. Called desk and a pleasant young woman appeared and took care of these things, but still... (3) complimentary ?? Breakfast minimally acceptable....powdered scrambled eggs, cold greasy potatoes. (4) in middle of first night both husband and I were awakened by repeated "stomping????" In room or hall above us. Will not return here.

Hotel was close enough to campus activities but far enough to avoid traffic and congestion in town. Staff was friendly, particularly lady who tended the breakfast room Sunday & Monday. All the food and beverages were plentiful, the area was very clean, and she prepared "to go" bags for anyone who requested them. Only complaint -- and a major one -- is the exorbitant room fee despite our reservations being made more than a year in advance.

Thank you for taking the time to review your most recent stay with us. We are glad you had a nice stay and enjoyed our complimentary breakfast. We are sorry that the higher than normal prices were a frustration for you. Unfortunately prices do go quite high in this area on special event weekend regardless of how far in advance you book. Rates for graduation went from 399-999 locally depending on the hotel. We understand the frustration in regards to spending so much on this special occasion. We are glad to see you enjoyed your stay otherwise and hope you will consider staying with us again in the future.

This is a lovely hotel - friendly staff, nice breakfast spread each morning, well designed, clean rooms, comfortable bed and centrally located. However, there were two big issues for me during this stay. The rooms are not well insulated and you can hear doors slamming, people talking, toilets flushing almost all night. Even with a noise cancellation app to help drown out the sounds I was unable to get a decent night's sleep both nights. The other issue was their wifi, it's very slow and often times I lost connectivity. Very frustrating. They really need to upgrade service.

23/04/2017

Let me say firstly the staff that we dealt with were very friendly and helpful... Check in is at 3:00pm we arrived at 3:00pm and was told rooms were not cleaned and we would have to wait another 45 minutes. Finally got our room Internet was not working, tried calling the front desk 3 separate times, no answer The couch bed in our room was nasty the sheets were never cleaned (front desk was helpful and had house keeping go up right away) The beds were old and uncomfortable what made it worse was the room directly above us allowing their children to jump and bang on the floor at midnight We had no idea being out of state that the blue white game was going on. So the hotel was very loud, all hours of the night people running up and down the halls yelling. Walls are paper thin, you can here guest above your room taking a leak. Our next visit to this area we will not be staying at the best western plus

Thank you for taking the time to review your most recent stay with us. Our sincerest apologies that we did not exceed your expectations during your stay. Our check in time is any time after 3pm and we apologize that you had to wait for your room to be ready. This is something we try very hard to avoid, unfortunately it is sometimes not possible on high volume weekends such as Blue White. We also apologize for the difficulties you had with our internet and your sofa bed. We just had the internet upgraded in the whole hotel and we are sorry you could not reach the staff to help you with it. It is likely our guest service agents were assisting guests in other areas of the hotel at the time of your call. We are also very sorry to hear you found our beds to be uncomfortable and had difficulties with noise. While noise can be difficult to control on sold out weekends our staff would of happily assisted in any way possible to help eliminate the noise complaint. Once again we offer our sincerest apologies on falling short on exceeding your expectations during your stay. We will use your feedback provided to help make improvements and fine tune our operations. We wish you happy travels and hope you will consider giving us another chance to exceed your expectations in the future.

We booked 2 rooms here to celebrate our daughter's 17th birthday. The rooms were next to each other (no rooms are connecting though). Zach and Dave at the front desk were friendly and attentive. When we arrived it was their complimentary happy hour (which we were not expecting). Our rooms were very clean, looked newer and the entire place is very "green!" Breakfast was very good as well. The only problems we had were the wi-fi was slow in 1 of our rooms and there were a lot of little kids staying at the hotel during our stay. This is no fault of the hotel, but we could hear them running in the hallways.

We had visited the hotel in October and had only one slight problem with noise. This time we stayed on the ground floor and had no issues. Our room was a nice size, the pool was very warm and the breakfast was excellent! It was nice to have fresh coffee and tea available all day and evening as well. We liked the location because there was a great variety of restaurants to meet our needs, all very close by, and the mall is directly across the street. The staff were all very helpful.

We made a last minute decision to go to the game and found this hotel on TripAdvisor. It was very nice, the staff was friendly and it was clean. We had a nice room on the third floor. Breakfast was included and it was fine. The pancake maker was anew one for me. Pancakes in a minute was a novelty. Sunday morning there was quite a bit of noise on our floor and you could hear the neighbors baby crying. Thin walls I guess. Nice location and good price. I would suggest more trash cans outside and in the lobby. We were looking for someplace to throw things out and had to hunt for a trash can. I would definitely recommend this place. The young man working the breakfast did a great job keeping up with the guests and refilling everything in a timely manner.

We just returned from a four day stay here and it exceeded our expectations! The hotel is clean and modern. The front desk clerk, David, was extremely helpful and friendly when we arrived on Thanksgiving! The location is terrific. Only 8 minutes to downtown Penn State, next door to the Premier Movie Theater, close to the Nittany Mall, Walmart, and many shopping venues and restaurants. The pool was clean and warm. Rooms were spacious and clean and the beds were very comfortable. Climate control in the room was spot on. We will definitely be staying here again!

The hotel and room were quite beautiful and comfortable. The internet service was difficult to get connected. Unfortunately, there was a terrible storm that caused a wide area power outage. The hotel staff did a good job and continued to provide hot water for a shower and a cold breakfast with hot coffee. The wake up service was not available though. I never received my invoice although the clerk promised to email it to me once the power was restored. The price was very reasonable for the value provided.

Pleasantly surprised by how close the hotel is to Mount Nittany Hospital (and a local mall was only minutes away). The room was fine but the breakfast was outstanding.

We stayed at this hotel during a recent football weekend and were very impressed with the facility and services. Typically when we visit State College, we try to stay as close to campus as possible so we can walk to downtown and sporting events easily. Since that wasn't available this time, we weren't sure what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised at this hotel. We were lucky to be there on a weekend when the lobby had a great happy hour with snacks and free beer and wine--what a delight and really impressed us! The room was comfortable and clean. A positive for us was the microfridge so we could keep our drinks cold. We didn't spend too much time at the hotel, but while there, had no complaints. The complimentary breakfast was great. A more expansive offering than many hotels in the area, and I enjoyed the oatmeal. Great stay and a great PSU win made for a wonderful weekend!

I am a local who was recently getting repairs done on my house and had to pick somewhere close to home. Perfect distance to runback to my torn apart house in pleasant gap to work in state college. Although computer systems were down,- lady (I think Amanda or Mandy or candy) was the best! I had to be re imbursed for my time at a hotel and there was no way to produce a receipt with no computers. She was able to make sure that I had all my billing right. Her and Melissa ( breakfast lady) handled the situation with ease and positive spirits. They made me feel like I had known them for years. Personality was amazing. (And I was NOT w nice guest with the situation at hand) A beautiful African American lady (janette or janelle or ja-nea) was so friendly while cleaning my room and it was SPOTLESS. Although I do not have a reason to stay again since I am local, I do know where I will be placing my in laws this holiday season!! Breakfast was one of the best hotel breakfasts I have ever had. Melissa made sure I had everything I needed like I was at a full service restaurant. Kudos to the general manager for having a staff that you can see enjoys their job. It really shows. Laid back yet professional. (Perfect mix) I stay at various hotels over 50 nights a year and this is only the second time I have ever felt it necessary to write a review. Best westerns have come a long way as a brand and this hotel and its staff just makes you want to go back. At 6 in the morning, they are fun!

Not having been in the area before, we did a lot of research. We changed our minds on the hotel 3 times and we ended up here. We weren't dissappointed and we'd stay again. While the presentation of the food was good, the flavor wasn't. We'd consider this the only hiccup. It was nice to have the bagels and fruit option so we didnt have to seek out a place to eat priot to the tournament we attended. We'll be back.

I've stayed at this property in the past and it was better than average. Currently I would say that the rooms, at least my room, was in need of some updating. The good ..... service was friendly and excellent, free breakfast and not just bagels. The bed was very comfortable and lots of pillows. The not so good....... the tub had a cheap retrofitted surround, the tub had the coating all chipped up, the wooden shelf where the microwave sits was very worn looking. I won't let these things stop me from going there in the future, and I will actually be staying there in another week if so, but it's not as good of condition as it used to be.

We stayed overnight at the Best Western Plus after dropping our grandson off at Penn State. We found a coupon in a travel guide and got a great rate. The front desk attendant was very friendly and checked us in without a problem. The room was very spacious with a king size bed, which was very comfortable. The room also had a mini fridge and microwave, which came in handy. They also had bath and body works products, which happen to be my favorite. The breakfast the following morning was amazing. They had eggs, bacon, potatoes, pancakes and waffles and many other choices. We will definitely stay here again when we are in the area.

We were just there for our first time during a football weekend and were pleasantly surprised! First, in general the staff was great. Aaron in particular was great. The rooms we large, the beds comfortable and I loved the bathrooms. So many hotels/motels don't think about women. There was a full size vanity counter for storing toiletries, a lighted make-up mirror and full selection of bath and body works toiletry items. There was also a shower cap and makeup remover. Plus the room was clean - a major major plus! My only negative was the breakfast. While other reviewers raved about it I thought it was not as good as other hotels of this caliber. The items in the heating pans were ice cold and not the best tasting (even though I recognize most of them are always from the package and reheated I thought these were less successful.) I will definitely choose to stay here again!

"Average due to lack of attention to detail"

3
08/09/2016

This is a hotel that should review at four stars, but barely rates three due to the management's lack of attention to detail and acceptance of fixable flaws. Bottom line: worth a stay, but only if this is the best price available in town--there are better options nearby. Here are my specific ratings: Check-in: B minus--friendly and enthusiastic but the computers are "down," requiring us to fill out a manual form. They were down throughout our stay, so we could not get a receipt. Room: B minus: Clean, up-to-date and comfortable. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were clean. However, when I went to leave a wake-up call, the phones were not working. Bath: C: Clean, up-to-date and well-maintained. Towels were worn but still in good shape. Sink lacks a drain closing plunger. Toilet seat would not stay up because of the seat model and the way it was installed according to a front desk employee. Facility: B minus: Clean but landscaping was a bit scruffy. Biggest problem was that security locks at access door were not functioning, forcing us to walk length of building to front entrance. Again, told by employee that "this happens sometimes." I really would have liked to give them a "Very good" for the nice staff and generally good condition of the property, but this hotel management really needs to fix the property's problems and shortcomings, and a "average" is appropriate.

Dear PSUDanO23, Thanks for choosing to stay with us. I am sorry you felt there were shortcomings during your recent stay. We take pride on providing amazing guest service with a hotel that's just minutes to the PSU Campus. We will be sure to take note of your maintenance issues and have them addressed for future guest. The front desk staff was accurate when they told you about the toilet model. The seat is designed like that for easy cleaning. The landscaping is not where it needs to be but we are doing a full installation next spring of an entirely new landscape design. While you were here are servers were down but they are fully back up and functional now. If you would call me I would be more than happy to get a receipt over to you for your recent stay. We hope that you will give us another chance to give you an exceptional experience. Kind Regards, Kevin Rugen Guest Services Manager

Stayed 9/3/16 & 9/4/2016. Hotel room was generous in size, beds were comfy & Wifi was great. The Breakfast had many choices - really something for everyone. Front desk staff was friendly & helpful. Hotel is located close to restaurants, Walmart, Sam's Club & the local Mall. A short (8-10 minutes) drive to downtown and the Penn State Campus. Will stay again for sure !

Very helpful staff; comfortable bed (I like the comforter which is not too thick). The microwave and mini-fridge were very useful for my travel purposes as well. The hotel is about 12-15 min south of I-80, which is a fairly quick hop. I would stay here if I had a meeting at Penn State.

"Poor Electrics/WIFI"

3
04/08/2016

My wife and I have stayed here before but we are struck by how poor the wifi is for a college location hotel. In addition this room had an electrical wiring oddity. The bathroom light could not be turned on without having the hall/entryway light on. So in the middle of the night the whole room is subjected to unnecessary light while people are sleeping.

25/07/2016

We were on our way home from a family trip to Michigan and stopped in for the night. The check in was easy and the front desk was very helpful. They had a coupon for Texas Roadhouse and a sewing kit which I needed. The staff was very nice. It was a Friday night it was a little on the loud side. We could hear a lot of noise from upstairs. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were not what we are use to. We had a suite which was nice to have the extra space. The included breakfast is really good. The kids were very entertained by the "magic" pancake maker. We were hitting the Penn's Cave on the way home so it was a good stop off for the night. Close location.

25/07/2016

The hotel has a nice indoor pool with a hot tub, which we used upon our arrival, after a very quick check in process. The guest room was roomy and lovely, and had a nice selection of toiletries in the bathroom. The room had a fridge, coffee maker, microwave, and hair dryer. The lobby had a selection of microwavable and frozen snacks, but I did not need to purchase any. Breakfast in the morning was fantastic, and had waffles, pancakes, yogurt parfaits, oatmeal, all sorts of toppings, cold cereals, and more. It was truly a great deal. When I book a hotel, I look for an indoor pool and a free breakfast, and this hotel fit that bill, but impressed me even beyond those 2 things. I highly recommend it, and I will definitely be staying here again when I visit State College to visit with my family member.

This was a very nice hotel. Very clean and the rooms were big and quiet. The beds were comfy. It has a nice pool and hot tub area. The breakfast in the morning was very good. They had waffles, pancakes, (lots of different toppings for both like strawberries, whip cream, powdered sugar and syrup) cereal, oatmeal, eggs, bacon, potatoes, yogurt, juices, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and apples. There may have been more, but that's all I can remember. The staff was great. At breakfast my on daughter had tea that was very hot. One of the staff asked her if she wanted ice for her tea, and got her some to help cool it down.

lobby attractive, personnel friendly, sink faucet was so close to the back of the sink that it was hard to put your hands under it to wash unless you turned up the volume of water, shower water pressure was good, breakfast food was ok, biggest thing was we could hear people above us walking around all the time. This noise was continuous. Rooms are spacious, comfortable - has easy chair with ottoman, next door is a cineplex , easy to get back to the highway. Due to the continuous noise I would probably choose a different hotel next time.

20/06/2016

Have stayed here several times over the last dozen years or so it's been open. Always a welcoming staff, a comfortable, well-maintained room and a very reasonable price. This year was no exception although the hotel seemed busier than usual. A couple of very minor nits: there really should be a second elevator. I slipped once on a wet spot left by a kid exiting the pool. Access to the elevator on my floor (4) blocked by a large soda machine. Besides, the elevator is very slow. The breakfast is average for this class of hotel; less appealing than in previous years. Overall, still 5 stars

We are so sorry to hear that you slipped on water during your stay with us.

This is the second time we stayed at a Best Western Plus hotel. We were very comfortable and pleased with everything. Very nice, and would recommend BW to others. We were able to utilize the pool area for our family group, and happen to have it to ourselves, which was nice. The breakfast was fresh and good. The only small concern was that, for me, the pillows were too lumpy, and that affected my sleep somewhat.

Great location ,easy access to PSU, nice amenities, the staff went above and beyond to help us stay at their hotel for two extra nights, in spite of only starting with one night reserved, saving us from having to stay an hour away from State College. They kept their prices decent in spite of most of the other hotels in the area totally price gouging in their greed to take advantage of desperate parents of PSU grads, and those attending the NCAA final Four Men's Volleyball events (like we were). Would definitely stay here again!!!

"Graduation weekend-Learn from my mistakes!"

08/05/2016

I made PSU graduation weekend reservations a year in advance. Had to go through booking.com as all hotels already booked. Paid about twice regular (graduation time) room rate @$618 per room for two rooms. Due family emergency I had to cancel reservations. I was admittedly 2 hours over deadline when I called hotel. My fault. My reservation was made through booking.com. Hotel told me to call booking.com. I did. Representative from booking had me on a three way call with hotel. Hotel (legally) stuck by the charge. After the phone call, Booking.com then sent me a letter stating the agreement with hotel was that I should be charged half. I again called hotel and spoke with general manager, I asked him if this agreement was true. He said "generally yes." However he stuck by full charge at $618 per room. I learned some lessons. If you book ahead this far don't use booking.com, post a cancellation reminder to yourself as you will NOT receive reminder from hotel, and don't expect help in an emergency. To hotel rules are rules. All "legal" of course, I don't think I would have gotten as upset if hotel at least talked to me at initial phone call. "You made your reservation through booking. com so you have to call them." Which I did. I am Sorry all this happened and this is my first negative review as a Best Western platinum Rewards member. Oh, and for $1236. i didn't get any points..... Please learn from my mistakes.

The hotel itself is fine.... Very clean and convenient to the interstate and PSU. Breakfast is good but it can become crowded on weekends. Nice pool too. The only complaint is that you have to watch the media poodles on Fox News while you eat your breakfast. For that reason alone I will stay elsewhere.

Janette R, Director of Sales at BEST WESTERN PLUS University Park Inn & Suites, responded to this review
With everything going on in this election season etc., we agree that any news channel may be frustrating. We do offer to change the public television to any of our guests. We will keep in mind when turning the television on in the morning that the Weather Channel may help plan peoples days as well as the traditional news. I have spoke to one breakfast attendant about this issue and making sure that we try a less bias station. We appreciate this type of feedback and hope that you still will try us again as we make changes based on guest feedback. Thanks again, Janette

Probably would have given 4 stars however, there were some minor things that were a bit annoying. Wifi kept disconnecting, sink faucet was so close to the back of the sink that it was hard to put your hands under it to wash (maybe only in room 302!), shower head couldn't be pointed downward enough (but water pressure was good), TV remote didn't work well, breakfast food was good but the area got a bit cramped when getting coffee and other items (go early!), we could hear the person above us walking around all the time (either a heavy walker or thin ceiling!).

First visit here. Check in was quick and the room was spacious. The indoor pool was a big hit with our granddaughter. The breakfast was good and offered a good variety. The price was great but cleanliness was a little lacking in the room...found old cheese on the floor. Overall, a fair value.

started out ok but continuously got worse by staff. Lack of bath tub was disappointing and shower was not great water pressure seem to be all gunked up by build up. The toilet made running water sounds the entire time and the wifi was sketchy at best

I was very impressed with this hotel, especially at the price! My kids loved the pool and hottub and it is right next to a movie theatre. It is also real close to the mall. My only complaint is that the bed was too hard for me to sleep.

Wonderful Hotel, clean, well maintained, spacious rooms, nice clean pool and gym, excellent breakfast. Very Pleasant Stay every time we visit PA. Its situated in a very good location, close to all shopping, food and outdoor activities. Would recommend to all!

First time at the new Best Western in State College, PA. The hotel was quiet, clean and Green. Friendly staff. Located just off of Shilo Road makes this hotel convenient to highway access, shopping, dining and more.

"Tidy and friendly, but not quiet"

21/03/2016

I stayed at the Best Western University Park recently while on business. The front desk staff were all very friendly and efficient. My room was spacious and well-equipped with work space, a kitchenette, and nice Bath & Body Works toiletries. The arm chair and hassock were a bit stained, but everything else was spotless. The bed linens were cheap -- so thin, they were almost opaque. A little after I checked in, I was startled as the door opened and three men walked in -- either maintenance or contractors. Records of which rooms are occupied need to be kept, and employees need to at least knock before trying to enter! I didn't hear any sound from the rooms on either side of me, but got a lot of noise from the room above -- soundproofing seemed non-existent between floors. If noise bothers you, I'd suggest asking for the top floor.

The only issue was that when we check-in (after 4PM) we went to our room and housekeeping was still making up the room. We had to leave and come back. The breakfast was ok. The room was really nice and clean. The location of the hotel was great. I would stay there again.

Loved our stay at this best western, slight noise issues the one night but that was to be expected as their was a group of kids in, wasn't really a concern for me and my boyfriend. Kids will be kids. Other than that the staff was all super friendly and willing to do anything we needed the breakfast buffet was also very good, we would definitely recommend this best wester to friends and would stay here on future getaways

"Great location; a good hotel choice for the I-99 traveler in Central PA"

14/03/2016

Best Western is probably my favorite hotel chain. Room, breakfast, staff were all excellent. It may be most helpful to point out this particular Best Western is in a great location, especially for travelers in Central PA on I-99 headed to or from I-80. It is easy to reach, located off the Shiloh Road exit of I-99, east of State College, near the Nittany Mall, and a number of restaurants..fast food and otherwise (Mexican, Quaker Steak, pizza) as well as a multi-screen theater next door. I stayed here the other evening after attending a concert at the Bryce Jordan Center, which is not very many miles away. This hotel will be my overnight stop again after a show.

This hotel is about three minutes to Nittany Mall, Walmart and Sams club. Its a good 10 minute drive from the University. It's in a quiet area but does have a movie theatre right next door. We were very pleased with the hotel. Very Clean. Very comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised as I have stayed in Best Westerns before and this one surpassed my expectations. We did have a small snafu with our billing but the staff is so helpful and committed to finding the issue and making sure everything is done right. This is an A+. Finally, breakfast was good. They had a waffle and pancake maker which was a bonus for my son. We did enjoy the breakfast but the eggs reminded me of the plastic sunny side eggs we used to play with as kids. :) Overall, I would definitely stay here again.

My son's and I stayed here the night before a wrestling tournament so we didn't have to travel so far and just to have a fun mini vacation. Hotel was very clean, amazingly friendly and accommodating staff, and plush, nice beds. Had a great nights sleep after being pool side most of the evening!

"2 night concert stay"

29/02/2016

First impressions were good, but then it started within 15 minutes. We were not told that there was a bus that would take us to Bryce Jordan Center until after I inquired about it, but by then we missed it. The bed was like sleeping on a board and the pillows weren't much better. The bathroom had cracked floor tiles throughout. My husband said it was like staying in a paper bag. You could hear the guests that were in the next room as if they were in our room. Unruly guests were running up and down the halls. The hot breakfast was not hot. The staff that took care of the breakfast room were too busy talking with front desk staff to be concerned about replenishing the food. We were disappointed with what we received for the $300.00 we spent for our 2 night stay. Probably would not return. Front desk staff did not even ask how our stay was when we left, she just took our room keys and said you're good to go.

"Great stay"

26/02/2016

I stayed here for 2 nights while traveling to state college on a business trip. The hotel was very clean, the front staff was wonderful and very helpful (needed to find a pharmacy for a RX refill), the breakfast area was very clean and the food was good. (First time I ever saw a Pancake making machine!!) Please note though....in the room there was a fill out card for the service you need for the next day. Choices were full cleaning, towel refresh and no service....Well I always ask for new towels but do not need the bed changed. When returning to my room I had new towels but that was all. Bed was not made nor were there additional little bottles of toiletries added. So if you want your bed made and need addtional shampoo or soap I suggest you put full service on your card.

breakfast was horrible, otherwise, hotel was fine. Good location for our business needs in State College, but a bit out of 'dodge'! Bed was comfortable, kitchen was sparse; no newspaper delivery in the morning which is a minus.

I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy our breakfast. Please feel free to let us know of anything particular that you would like to see changed.

13/02/2016

Although the desk agent was very polite when we arrived, the first two sets of card keys he gave us did not work. A little frustrating after a long drive. The hotel itself was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was above the norm for most best westerns. Plenty of choices. Although I didn't use it, the pool and hot tub looked clean and inviting. Overall a good experience and I would stay here again.

We had a double queen large comfortable room. I would have liked a little more water pressure in the shower, but that is me.The breakfast buffet was clean and well stocked with hot food and good cold choices. The bed was comfortable and aside from noisy upstairs neighbors one night the place is pretty quiet.

08/02/2016

Nice property for the price. Breakfast was diverse and different each day. The staff was very nice and even changed our room after our original room proved to be near the the lobby and therefore very loud. Truth be told our next room was still rather noisy which leads me to believe that there isn't much in the way of soundproofing.

08/02/2016

My husband and I took our 3 grandsons to a Penn State basketball game. Being a late game we wanted to stay the night. The Best Western Plus was recommended to us by a friend who stays after every football game. He said that the hotel was his first choice. He was right, perfect location, the hotel was only a few miles from the campus. Our room was extremely clean, which is a must for my little guys. The staff was very friendly and courteous and the breakfast was great. You definitely did not walk away hungry. We will definitely book with the Best Western Plus next trip to State College.

Less than 5 miles to Beaver Stadium but away from the hustle and bustle of downtown on a football weekend. Free parking and a hot, diverse breakfast fitting all palates. Room was warm and cozy but needed a little more housekeeping attention. Maria and Angela at the front desk were very helpful and professional. Indoor pool and hot tub were perfect for a fall/winter stay-cation.

Nice hotel-got an early check-in. Ate our lunch in the lobby. Staff was very friendly. Used the fitness room. Good night's sleep. Breakfast staff was awesome. She cooked up an egg dish with no "gluten in it." Have and Will recommend this hotel. Easy drive to PSU campus!

"Great room and breakfast"

20/01/2016

The location is convenient for business in State College. The room was large and had both a microwave and a refrigerator. The breakfast is available for free and included make your own waffles and pancakes and included eggs, sausage, breads, yogurt, cereal and oatmeal. My only issue was that we found a master key in our room that must have belonged to a maid and when we returned it to the front desk they seemed unconcerned.

10/01/2016

I stayed three nights at this Best Western Plus. The front lobby was beautifully decked out for the holidays. The rooms clean and well-appointed. This is why the Very Good rating. The only problems I encountered were: remote requiring new batteries, one morning the breakfast area was so crowded that we almost did not get a table - the seating spread into the lobby. The front desk clerk on check-in was less than enthusiastic and did not explain the hotel amenities (I checked in at 8:00 pm on a Wednesday night.

"Quiet and clean with polite staff."

30/12/2015

This is my second time at the Best Western on Premiere Drive. The staff has been and was helpful, courteous and efficient. Both times that I stayed my rooms were at the front of the building facing east. The view was serene looking over a field and low mountains in the distance. Also because it being at the end of December, the parking lot was 70-80% filled and it was still quiet (no games at this time). I felt safe. The rooms were clean and quiet. They come with a mini fridge, micro-wave, hair dryer, 1 cup coffee maker and ac/heat/fan that works VERY well. There's plenty of room in the room with 2 queen size beds for the little ones to have room to spread out. Conceivably room for another queen size blow up mattress. Besides the bureau and built in cupboards and counter where the mini fridge and microwave are there is a desk with it's own chair and another cushioned chair with ottoman. They are green so you must request bed or towel service. My phone signal strength was strong enough not to need their wi-fi code. There is no room safe. I would definitely stay there again.

While this may not be a five star hotel, the service was excellent and staff was very friendly. I would definitely stay here again next time I am in the area. The continental breakfast was very good, even better than some of the bigger hotels. There is a nice weight room and clean pool as well.

Stayed for Swim Meet; about a 5 minute drive to PSU McCoy Natatorium. Room exceptionally clean. Beds ok. Has refrigerator and microwave area in room. Breakfast good. Did not use pool but looked nice (on smaller side). Only minor complaint of not having outlets in lamp on bedside table. You have to reach behind bed to charge your phone and keep within arm's length or charge on the other side of the room.

I had the pleasure of staying in one of the double bed suites and loved it. Everything was very clean. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast bar in the morning has great options.

16/11/2015

I stayed here over the weekend (November 13-15) and enjoyed the stay very much; the employees were very friendly and helpful and the room was very clean and comfortable. My daughter enjoyed the indoor pool and we were close to everything we needed. My only complaint--and it's a minor one--is the breakfast eggs. They were rubbery and chewy and I just didn't feel like I was eating scrambled eggs. The overall selection was great and the coffee was some of the best! Overall my experience was very good but when my family travels we usually bring our dog, so next time up with our dog we'll have to stay somewhere else but for this weekend it was perfect for me and my daughter. You can't beat the location; close to gas, shopping, food, and a play place for kids (Fun Unleashed by the Wal-Mart) and the highway. It was a very convenient location, and if it were dog friendly, we'd make it our go-to place to stay.

We travel and stay over night several nights per year, To be honest Best Western is never our first choice. It seems more of a franchise than a chain and you are often surprised at what you get. We first tried the State College Best Western due to its proximity to our destination and the fact that it was newly built. (about 2-3 years ago). This hotel is first class with comfortable rooms, fast wifi, and a nice breakfast. The staff is very friendly and will go out of their way to help. They also have a fitness room, pool and hot tub. I would have no reservations advising anyone to make a reservation at this property.

When I checked in, the front desk clerk was nice. We got to the room and it was big and clean. Everything in the room worked. I have stayed at 2 other hotels in State College.

"One Blooper but still a Great Best Western"

4
13/10/2015

We try to stay in Best Western Hotels when traveling and not necessarily on "vacation". This is probably the best Best Western we've stayed at. The lobby and breakfast area were very nice and inviting and the front desk staff were all very welcoming and accomodating. The rooms were a little roomier than most and everything in the rooms and around the hotel were in good condition. The suite we were in had a sofa and a stuffed chair with a semi divider between the bed and the living area. It created a nice division and made it more conducive to relaxing and hanging out. The pool area was nice and they had a good exercise room for a "motel". We used both. The one "blooper" was that one of the three rooms we had was not serviced one night. Also, when leaving one morning we passed a housekeeping staff and to help we said, "We're leaving now so you can clean..." and without stopping or even looking at us, she said, with an attitude," Not my rooms." even though we had never had the chance to say what rooms we were in. It was weird. But everyone else and the motel was so good it didn't majorly affect the was we saw the property. Although without this incident, we probably would have rated it a five. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

13/10/2015

I stayed one night on a Sunday, so I will precede this review by stating that the place was not all that busy. But in any case, here are a few facts: It's a block off of the busy road, so I found it fairly quiet in the room. There is a Sheetz right across the street, which is very convenient. It's a 5 mile straight drive directly to Penn State University Park campus. Quick friendly check-in. We were on the second floor. Our room had 2 queen sized beds, and yet the room was very spacious. Everything was clean and functional. The heat/AC worked perfectly. Microwave and fridge in the room, and the fridge was cold and ready for use. Coffee maker in room. It worked fine. Spacious, clean bathroom, stocked with more than enough towels, etc. Free breakfast included. It was perfectly fine. Free internet, and it performed well. Good TV with a decent selection of channels. NO room safe.

Perfect location, comfortable rooms and an exceptional staff (one of the best I've seen in a long time). I work in the travel industry and stay in a lot of hotels....this was top notch for sure. I will definitely recommend this to others headed to PSU. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

The hotel is relatively new and very clean. The staff at the Best Western was very pleasant and helpful, especially, the breakfast buffet staff. The rooms were nice and most importantly clean. The location is easy to find and close to PSU.

This hotel is very convenient to I 99 and PSU. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Sometimes they run a shuttle to PSU games so check with the hotel. Rooms were spacious and clean. Breakfast was typical hotel stuff and crowded but that is to be expected. Will stay here again when we visit.

We were returning from a driving vacation in Nova Scotia and traveling to Indianapolis for an event. Road Construction in Connecticut, New York, and Pennsylvania had tried our patience and when it came to stop, we looked up this place in the highway coupon book and our road frustrations melted away. Great Staff, Great hotel. Good night sleep, Good breakfast and we went on to our next adventure refreshed.
