Great Place to Stay for a Weekend in State College

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I recently stayed here while travelling to State College for a weekend to attend a concert at the Bryce Jordan Center. The room was very clean and comfortable, and the owners were very friendly and welcoming. It is located in a very nice neighborhood just outside of downtown State College. Penn State's campus and downtown State College are just a short car or Uber ride away. I would recommend staying here to anyone travelling to State College.

Very clean and near Penn State!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed spending time at this cute place. Vanessa welcomed us warmly and made sure we were comfortable and left us with water bottles and cute little samples in the bathroom. The place was very clean and only a 5 minute drive from Penn State. I recommend this place!

Great Football Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter & I stayed here when we came back for her first football game after graduation. Perfect accommodations for the two of us - although we could have comfortably had a third with us. The McLaughlin's were great to deal with and we had complete privacy - no concern when my daughter came in at 1am! They even had snacks & water for us! Mini fridge, toiletries, large room, & nice porch where we enjoyed a glass of wine while listening to the fountain. Only 10 minutes from campus. Would stay here again!

Best kept secret in State College

  • 5 of 5

Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, this is a welcome retreat after a long day of adventures or college activities. This one bedroom suite is perfectly nestled on the Penn State campus. Tree lined streets, gracious hosts and well appointed accommodations make this the perfect get away from the hustle and bustle of a college town. That being said, it is only 5 minutes from the center of State College where shops, restaurants and night life abound. We stay for a long weekend and still feel like there is more to see every time we go back. So close to everything, meticulously maintained living space, owners onsite if you need anything and separate entrance to privately come and go at your leisure - This is our only choice when coming into town for the Happy Volley Volleyball tournament. You won't be disappointed!!!!!
