Greedy
I thought that putting $5. Bottles of water in the room was greedy. I have stayed in New York in Times Square at a major chain and they gave each guest 1 free water.

This hotel in downtown State College is a beautiful and very clean hotel. Parking is a problem for taller vehicles, I had a high top Sprinter, but otherwise it's excellent and comfortable.

College visit
The hotel was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The location was perfect - within walking distance to our college visit at Penn State.
Susan, us1 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Love the renovations and unique yet PSU themed decor!! Room and bathroom were super comfy and clean. Hotel staff was ultra helpful and allowed me to arrange a very late checkout after my daughter had a health emergency at THON. I’ll be back!!
Carolyn, us1 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Loved the hotel. Loved the room and guest service people were awesome. However, the phone in our room did not work. And we found that out because after being out all day we came back to a dirty room and had to call for housekeeping. An aberration, I’m sure, which will not preclude us from booking again!
Kimberly, us2 night trip with friends
Exceptional 10.0
The room and decor was amazing and perfect for downtown state college. Parking was limited and first come first serve, and was $8/night. The elevators were slow and run down, especially compared to the lobby and the rest of the hotel. My husband and I only live 40 minutes from state college, we were just looking for a night away- and our stay at the Graduate hotel was wonderful!

Arrived at 2:50 for 3:00 check in and rooms were not ready.

Sleepless night sharing a wall with the elevators!
Room was situated on back side of elevator shaft and all night long we listened to elevators running up and down, vibrating against the wall and opening and closing--it was a miserable sleepless night.

Meh
Window overlooks massive construction site. It is not the hotels fault. But beware that you will be woken up at 7am on a Saturday morning to the sound of construction that goes on all day long. There is no way to sleep through the noise. Perhaps inquire if you can get a room on the opposite side of the building. Also: beware that the "amenity" of self-parking does cost you money. it is in the small print. Literally small print. Firts you need to click on a tiny asterisk that will lead you to extra costs. It is not that much but it is annoying nonetheless.
