Verified Tripadvisor Reviews

Nice hotel with very friendly staff

I stayed two nights at this hotel. I made a good choice. The entire stay was problem free. Parking was very convenient; the room was clean and quiet. The bed was comfortable. The shower had good pressure. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this place and would definitely stay there again.

Great stay!

I am a PSU alum so I know how great it is to be in walking distance of all the hustle and bustle downtown. This was a great place to stay while we were in town for a wedding.

Best location, amenities and service in downtown State College

I am a frequent guest at The Atherton Hotel for stays of one week or longer. The In-room coffee maker, microwave oven and mini-refrigerator bring many of the conveniences of home to a hotel stay. But the heart of any hospitality business is the people, and the staff at The Atherton, is the most service-oriented team you will find at any first class hotel!
