Make the Penn Stater your home away from home during your visit to Happy Valley. They go out of their way to make their guests feel comfortable and at home. Their 300 guest rooms and suites are graciously appointed for maximum convenience and comfort, including flat-screen HDTVs, complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi, coffeemakers, and much more.

While you are here, be sure to enjoy menus at both on-site restaurants. Enjoy breakfast at Gardens, then head over to Legends, their traditional pub-style restaurant for lunch or dinner.
