Stay Restrictions

We require both Friday and Saturday nights for all home football weekends. Rooms are not intended for resale or transfer without proper notification to and approval from the hotel. If you are making a reservation on someone’s behalf, please include contact details of the person staying in the room. Penn State hotels may cancel any booking that is transferred or resold inappropriately, and any deposits will be forfeited. 

For security purposes, guests reserving multiple rooms must provide individual names of arriving guests prior to check-in.

Cancellations and Deposits

New for 2019 special events. After hearing back from our guests, we will be offering an option for a more flexible cancelation policy. Two night reservations made over most special event weekends can now elect a higher rate tier with additional flexibility to cancel up to 14 days prior to arrival. These flex cancelations will require an initial charge of one night’s stay that would remain fully refundable until the cancelation date. Once within the cancellation period the remaining balance due would be posted to your credit card.

Cancellation and modification requests must be received in writing at least 30 days prior to the planned arrival date. Reservations made within the cancellation period are considered non-refundable and require a full prepayment at the time of booking. 

Full, non-refundable, advance deposits will be processed beginning 30 days prior to the reservation arrival date for all football weekends. 

Early departures are non-refundable and will be subject to a full cancellation fee or forfeit of remaining deposit.
