Negative Reviews

Air conditioning sometimes ineffective.

Several guests staying at Quality Inn State College have experienced issues with air conditioning during their stay. These guests report that AC units are sometimes ineffective, leaving rooms stuffy. Additionally, non-opening windows are said to result in a musty smell.

Some issues with shower drainage.

A number of guests have reported issues with shower drainage while staying at the hotel. Reports suggest that drainage is not always fast and effective, meaning shower stalls fill up with water which subsequently leaks onto the bathroom floor.

Parking lot gets crowded during busier periods.

While most guests have no problems when it comes to parking, reports indicate that parking can be at a premium during busier periods. Notable busy periods include student moving days (beginning and end of school year) and football weekends.
