Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Audge126 Wonderful Location!
Great location, close to Penn State. My only recommendation is to have the breakfast go until 11:00 when games have a later start. 10:00 is too early and they were clearing out the breakfast food right at 10:00.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chunter1230 Highly recommend!
I only stayed one night, but I must say, EVERYTHING was absolutely perfect. From check in to check out. Room was clean and fresh smelling. Bathroom was immaculate. Bed was so very comfortable (I wish my bed at home was that comfortable), breakfast was excellent. I highly recommend you stay at the Holiday Inn Express, State College ANYTIME you are in the area!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GardnerD Average hotel
I've stayed at this property twice now, and I'm not really impressed. I stay in hotels over 75 nights a year, and find this one to be average at best. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable, but there's nothing special about it. While I've been recognized as a Gold Elite IHG member at other Holiday Inn Express properties, and even offered a welcome amenity, at this location I received no acknowledgment of it at all. When you travel as much as I do, little touches like that go a long way, and as I have comparable status at other brands that also have hotels in the area, I will probably be choosing them in the future. The biggest problem I have with this property, and the biggest reason that I will probably not return, is the breakfast that is offered. There is limited selection, and even less healthy options: There were only apples available for fruit, and small yogurts. There is also no oatmeal, a staple of practically every other hotel I have ever stayed in, and one of the few things that hotels offer that can keep a person full until lunch.
All that being said, I do appreciate the fact that there are outlets directly adjacent to the bed for easy phone charging. Also, the internet connectivity and speeds were adequate.
