Pros: Efficient staff - clean room
Cons: The 11:00am checkout was a bit early - most places give you until noon.
Location: Near several chain eateries.....not far from grocery stores....all within walking distance.
This was a mixed business/leisure trip....the room was spacious and clean. A couple years ago I stayed in Penn State's Conference Center. We were put in a room in a hallway that were both in "remodeling" mode for twice as much money as this room...my recent experience at the Holiday Inn Express was certainly more positive.

First time State College

Posted Jan 23, 2015
I arrived, reserved a King room, and the first room was accessible which I don't care for. The next room, a suite was okay but the heater was making quite a bit of noise so I had to go back a third time for a room. Comfortable and great value.

Merely OK

Posted Jan 19, 2015
Pros: Convenient location. Good price found on expedia.
Cons: Hot water; clean bathroom tiles.
Location: Several restaurants nearby, good shopping as well.
Lovely hotel from outside and beautiful lobby. Turned out to be deceiving. Water does not get hot no matter how long you wait. It's not cold and it's not entirely uncomfortable, but forget a hot shower. Bathroom floor tiles are either ancient or dirty. Either way, ewww!

Clean, comfortable, nice breakfast

Posted Jan 18, 2015
This was a haven for our stay in State College. We were greeted by friendly staff, who offered extra off-site services based on information we gave, and found our room pleasant and very comfortable. Lots of pillows!!!! The only negative I have is that the poor breakfast lady struggled to keep up and could use extra help in the morning!

Hotel Room

Posted Dec 23, 2014
Pros: The front desk staff were friendly and the breakfast had many choices (even though the eggs & potatoes lacked seasoning).
Cons: See comments above
Location: Great location to Penn State and local restaurants, like Outback, Olive Garden & Cracker Barrel.
The mattress was worn. We could feel the indents/dips from previous users over time. The pillows were way to soft/mushy. The full bed is NOT large enough for two people (even petite size).

The hotel was very nice. The check in attendant was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. And the location was great and had easy access on/off highways. There was also alot of restaurants in walking distance.

Football Weekend

Posted Nov 6, 2014
Was Great! Feel that the transit buses for the game should have pick ups closer to the hotel.
