Positive Reviews

Rooms are generally good quality

Rooms at the Super 8 State College are not without problems, but the overall feeling from guests is that they are of reasonable quality. Most guests found the rooms were cleaned to an acceptable standard. Plus, beds are comfortable.

Problems are addressed

One plus that comes through in reviews is that guests are not ignored when they bring issues to the attention of staff. Guests say that issues were often rectified immediately while repeat guests comment that attention has been paid to previously reported problems.

Good value for money

You would never describe this hotel as luxurious, but most guests find it acceptable for the price charged. There are several included amenities -- Wi-Fi, parking, breakfast, and the local shuttle -- that offer additional value during your stay.

Negative Reviews

Dated appearance

Although many guests find the hotel reasonably clean and comfortable, the property is also often described as dated in appearance. More than one guest comments that it's like stepping back into time to the 1970s.

Smoke and pet smells

There are designated smoking and pet-friendly rooms available at this hotel. Unfortunately, those guests who don't smoke or have pets with them are often quite sensitive to the associated smells. The spray used to mask the smells is quite overpowering in itself.

Maintenance issues need pointing out

Although guests mention that staff are quick to address maintenance issues at the hotel, this does not explain why they aren't rectified as part of an ordinary housekeeping and maintenance routine. It does seem that the hotel's approach to issues is reactive rather than preventative.
