It's overall a very good courtyard. It offers standard things the courtyard brand of hotel offers, so nothing particularly shocking there. I do think the addition of a hot tub within the pool area is quite nice. The pool itself is also relatively big. Everyone working at the front desk was very friendly and efficient. It's location to the college...

This is a super nice hotel. We stay here every year when visiting family. We got a large room. Everything is clean. No free breakfast, but a wonderful cafe at average breakfast prices. Great scones, starbucks products, and freshly cooked eggs. Will always choose this hotel first. Sometimes hard to get in if Penn State has games.

This hotel is nice and recently renovated. The rooms were clean and the staff is attentive. My 1st night there were no toiletries in my room. The staff immediately rectified. The next morning the hair dryer blew sparks and the front desk had a replacement in 10 minutes. The bistro is nice, over priced, and understaffed. The walls are very...

We had two rooms for the weekend. We've been there before and we were pleased to see the rooms remodeled! Very clean and overall great experience! The staff was very friendly and helpful considering how busy they were over a football weekend!

Stayed here for one night with 3 kids fro PSU Basketball game. Room was clean, with a reasonable rate. Only 1 mile to Beaver Ave and stadiums. Lobby bar open late enough to wind down while kids were in roomo surfing free internet. Would definitely stay here again.

This Courtyard by Marriott is similar to other Courtyard hotels. It had a nice 'bistro', pool, hot tub, exercise room. The bathroom in my room was just acceptable (small tub/shower, small counter, sink outside). The room was quite nice (as usual for a Courtyard). The hotel is close to quite a few amenities. Restraints, drug store, supermarket, etc. Only about...

We found the Courtyard to be a step up from most hotels in the State College area. The rooms were quite spacious, clean & very comfortable. We stayed twice: a Thurs & Mon night. It was remarkably quiet despite the number of guests. Small but very nice pool area. Although it is well off-campus, you can choose to drive or...

Stayed here during a Penn State tour. Its close to campus (about 1 mile) easy to get to and from. Staff is friendly, rooms were clean and quiet. They have a small bistro type food service in lobby. Had breakfast there, and enjoyed it. I would stay here again if I return.
