All rooms are equipped with amenities like free Wi-Fi, a flat-screen high-definition TV and Keurig coffee maker, though several recent guests thought the rooms were a bit outdated. The hotel boasts two on-site dining options: Whiskers is a casual pub-style lunch and dinner spot, while The Dining Room serves award-winning fine dining cuisine. Guests will enjoy the fitness center stocked with cardio machines and weights, as well as complimentary access to the university’s fitness center, which includes an indoor lap pool.

    3.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 680 reviewsTripAdvisor (680)
    Free WiFi

    Located a little less than 3 miles north of campus, The Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center is a great option for those that want to be close to campus, but not directly in the center of the action. Aside from the massive 58,000-square-foot conference center, the property has 300 guest rooms and suites. Each room comes with a minifridge, complimentary Wi-Fi access and a flat-screen television, though several recent guests wished the hotel would be more flexible about late checkout. The two on-site restaurants are The Gardens, which serves casual breakfast, lunch and dinner, and Legends, which serves fine dining fare. For those looking to break a sweat, the hotel offers a fitness center with an indoor heated pool. And if you want to take your workout outside, you have plenty of nearby hiking and biking trails. The free shuttle service, including airport transportation, and free parking make it easy for guests with and without cars to get around town.

    The Carnegie Inn & Spa enjoys the best of two worlds: Set against the quiet greens of Toftrees Golf Resort, it’s also just about 3 miles to Penn State University’s Beaver Stadium, so it is also close to the excitement of the lively college town of State College, Pennsylvania.

The boutique property has just 20 rooms and offers four room categories, though all accommodations are large and classically appointed with antique furnishings, colorfully patterned wallpaper and chaise lounges.  The modern bathrooms include stand-alone tubs and separate walk-in showers with rain showerheads. The rooms also include complimentary Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs. A hot, made-to-order breakfast is complimentary and offered daily. While there is no on-site fitness center, access to a facility across the street is included. The hotel also has billiards tables, a seasonal outdoor pool and fire pit, an on-site spa and easy access to area hiking trails. The property’s restaurant overlooks the 17th green of the golf course and serves modern seasonal fare for dinner.  Recent guests raved about the restaurant and the top-notch customer service throughout the hotel. This property is a member of the Choice Hotels group and Choice Privileges members can earn and redeem points by staying here.

All rooms come with minifridges, showerand tub combos, workspaces with ergonomic chairs, high-definition TVs, coffee makers and complimentary Wi-Fi.
