GorgeousPosted Aug 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel is absolutely gorgeous and the soaking tubs are incredible, relaxing, and romantic. Having traveled extensively throughout the US, I think the rate for the room is a huge steal! Breakfast was perfect. We really enjoyed ourselves. Drawbacks: could not do a check-in a half-hour before check-in time; the staff were kind of snooty; as a person of color, my husband felt very uncomfortable around the other guests who were not the world's kindest sort. If you want to be out of the way for the noise of Penn State, it's a perfect location. But, if you're trying to enjoy State College proper, then it's kind of a hassle to get to and from.

Comfortable and luxuriousPosted Aug 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel has a Scottish lodge theme and is nicely situated in the midst of a 18-hole golf course and landscaped areas. Rooms are large and comfortable and nicely appointed. The bath is also large with a wonderful soaking tub as well as a separate shower. The library offers a comfortable space to relax and enjoy a drink from the Thistle bar while listening to a piano player prior to dinner. You can dine on the patio or in the dining room. The menu was expensive, but the food was outstanding. A lavish buffet breakfast is included in the room fee. The hotel was quiet which I appreciated in the midst of my trip. A spa is connected to the hotel, but I did not take advantage of that.

Very peacefulPosted Jul 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
Carnegie Inn & Spa is in a great location. We are 25+ year alums of Penn State, so staying further away from the madness that is campus and College Avenue was very pleasant, even though they were were less than 15 minutes away. The Nittany Lion Inn used to be our favorite spot, but now both of us think we will exclusively stay at the Carnegie Inn & Spa when we drive to University Park to visit our daughter.

Beautiful warm and welcomingPosted Jul 16, 2013
Wonderful little bit of heaven away from the Penn State College scene. The rooms were big and wonderfully decorated. The chocolate chip cookies left were a sweet touch. Even the grounds of the hotel were beautiful and we were lucky enough to be able to enjoy the complimentary breakfast on the back patio. We will definitely be back, next time we come to Penn State. I highly recommend the the Carnegie Inn.
