“Penn State Girls Volleyball Tournament”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2012

We stayed at the Super 8 while my daughter attended the big Memorial Day volleyball tournament held annually at Penn State. Perfect location. Close to all Penn State venues. Folks were very nice. It's old, but it's clean. Not many amenities, but exactly what we needed!

Room Tip: I think there might be a newer section. Worth asking! But the view out our windows on the old side w...

My mom and I recently stayed at the hotel from May 20-May 22, 2012 for a job fair, and to check out Altoona, State College Pa area. The room was huge, a lot of closet space for individuals staying a longer period of time. The bathroom was kind of small, but overall served the purpose. Great helpful staff, especially Tina a lot of friendly, professionalism for an average hotel. I've stayed at a few Super 8 hotels in PA, this hotel had a great breakfest area!! I would recommend this hotel for anyone, and would defintly stay again!

I was at the Super 8 for Penn State's graduation weekend - two nights required, pre-paid. I can't believe that the Super 8 is not the lowest rated hotel in State College. The place was dirty. The room and the elevator smelled. The floor of the elevator was filthy. The tiles and caulking in the bathroom were cracked and blackened. The towels were as thin and rough as I've ever experienced in a hotel. The pillows and blankets were old and worn. The towel rack was literally held up by a rubber band - which broke! The carpet in the breakfast room was dirty and covered by crumbs. Also, the place is "dog-friendly", and has dogs in the rooms and corridors - with occasional barking. On a more positive note, the front desk staff were very pleasant.

Please accept my sincere apology to you and your family for the unpleasant experience during your last stay in State College. I have met with my department managers on the issues mentioned in your post. After our meeting, the housekeeping supervisor inspected and removed all worn linens, pillows, and blankets. Emphasis has been placed on training all of the housekeeping staff to place quality items in each guestroom. The maintenance department now performs routine maintenance daily on every guestroom to help eliminate cracked and discolored bathroom tiles. The breakfast area did receive a lot of traffic during Penn State graduation weekend as we were completely sold out. An additional breakfast bar attendant will be added on sold out dates to help clean the breakfast room and restock food items. The State College Super 8 is pet friendly. All pet owners renting a room are required to complete a waiver stating they are a responsible pet owner and will abide by the rules listed. If the front desk attendant sees/hears something inappropriate or is notified by a guest, the pet owner is contacted immediately. Thank you for your sincere concerns. Feedback like this helps to improve our service and property on a daily basis. Please contact me at your earliest convenience as I would appreciate an opportunity to discuss your specific items in more detail. Thank you. 814.237.8005

The hotel was in a very nice area in state college. The woman who checked me in was very nice and showed a lot of professialism! The room was a little outdated but was very clean and did its job. I would stay here again!
