"Michael the manager was very cooperative to work with!!!"July 11, 2021
"Very nice employees and great storage space"July 05, 2021
"Check in was easy and took less than 10 minutes. Michael Gallagher helped me through the process while keeping up great conversation. Unit was exactly as specified. Bring a lock if you can!"June 29, 2021
"They don’t pro-rate if you move your stuff out before the billing cycle is up. Our billing cycle started on the 20th. We moved everything out on the 28th. We still have to pay for the remaining 20+ days while it sits empty. In the meantime they can rent the units I’m paying for and double dip. How is that even legal? I asked what would happen if someone moved into the unit I was paying for and I wanted to put something back in storage. Their response was they would ask the other people to move their stuff out. That’s great customer service! We were also told the first month would be free then when we sign the contract all of a sudden our unit doesn’t qualify for the first month free. I’ll never recommend them to anyone."June 02, 2021
"Best customer service."May 07, 2021
"mike and tracie were very helpful and professional with the move in process. highly recommend life storage for everyone but especially college students leaving for summer!!!"May 01, 2021
"Rude and dishonest owners!!!!!"April 06, 2021
"The staff here is really nice and patient!"April 03, 2021
"Amazing service! Highly recommend."March 19, 2021
"Great price, efficient, and most importantly very human and polite which a lot of other places lack. I would recommend. Also the unit is clean as well."March 06, 2021
"Nice place to store things while moving. Great and friendly staff."March 02, 2021
"All of these reviews must be fake after the experience I just had. Mike at the front desk can be very kind IF you're there to pay rent. If you approach him about consistent mice problems and excrements all over your belongings you left in a place you thought your things would be safe, well... guess it's not Mike's problem either. I'm not talking about a little bit here and there, but an astonishing amount an army of mice left behind as they tore open bags of my things. I have never met a manager more dismissive of a customers issue with him essentially telling me to figure it out.This place is disgusting and the staff is less than helpful. Store your place somewhere else if you want it taken care of."February 19, 2021
"Mike helped me get a storage unit and I had the BEST experience I have ever had in getting a storage unit. Customer service was excellent, I was provided with adequate information to make an informed decision, and enjoyed the experience overall! Very much recommended!!!"February 18, 2021
"I got a recommendation from a friend of mine that life storage is the best place to rent in state college and I gave it a try. 5 months into my rent agreement I visit my unit and find mice infestation with ground fully covered by poo and pee. I set up mice traps and clean it up without filing a claim as I thought damage wasnt substantial. a couple months later, I come back in to find 3 more mice that turned my unit upside down. around 1000$ worth of damage as they ate a lot of electronic components. Mike at the front desk was extremely unhelpful and the only thing he said was to take a copy of the insurance pamphlet. He did not apologize or not even try to offer to visit my unit as he emphasized on the fact that I have a month late balance due that he was going to send to collections if I didn't pay before I vacate. COMPLETELY ABSURD and UNPROFESSIONAL. Look at the pictures and I advise no one to ever visit this place. the pictures show only a corner of the unit so I let you imagine the rest."February 18, 2021
"We found the folks at Life Storage friendly and easy to work with. They provided safe and clean storage and excellent customer service to go with it."January 26, 2021
"Very easy to rent online. They even called me when I accidentally locked my unit unlatched. The only issue I had was you need to fill out a paper form to end your rental and no email address is listed. But, they gave me that on the phone, so 👍!"January 06, 2021
"The storage was perfect. Clean, well lit and always available. COVID didn’t allow for much time with the staff, but they were always there with a friendly wave."December 05, 2020
"Everyone knows moving is simply the worst and always stressful... I have had horrible experiences in the past and I have moved across country and across town a few times. Figuring out the logistics is the most stressful and nothing ever works out the way you hope for it to go. With this said, Mike Gallagher the Store Manager at the State College 757 Science Park Rd Life Storage is probably the most exceptionally kind, calming, helpful, and all together wonderful human being I have worked with in a long time. I know none of us are getting many in person interactions these days, but between phone calls and the few in person interactions, just... WOW!!! for most exceptional Customer Service Award 🥇 of the year is certainly granted to Mike! I hope someone from Corporate sees this... They would be silly not to recognize what an asset he is to have as a part of their organization. Thank you Mike! 😊"December 03, 2020
"Tracey was extremely helpful and patient as she worked with me. She walked me through a couple of things while trying to complete my contract and answered all of my questions. I was having some things moved in and then realized I needed a second unit and on the spot she was able to connect me so that I could complete a new contract without having to wait to store my things (this was important because I was in CT and my storage is in PA). She is definitely customer centered and made the interaction pleasant."December 03, 2020
"Incredibly easy and simple to store your items and access them 24/7. Mike was incredibly helpful in getting me set up and answering all my questions. I would definitely recommend!"November 24, 2020
"Highly recommended. The store manager, Mike, went out of his way to make sure that every detail was taken care of and to our satisfaction. Worry-free. The price was also great with the free first month of storage."November 04, 2020

"My experience with Life Storage far exceeded any expectations I had for the impact that storage units could make. In a time that has been challenging for so many with facing the uncertainties of the pandemic, Mike and Traci did everything they possible could to accommodate our needs. Their professionalism and customer focused care has made Life Storage stand out far above other storage options."August 08, 2020
"I have used this Life Storage for two moves. Both times I had a great experience. Clean, good-sized units and they often have deals or can help make sure that you are renting exactly what you need for as long as you need to. The moving truck is also a plus! I wouldn't think to rent anywhere else with great experiences here. I have spoken with both Mike and Tracie and they are both friendly and prompt. Overall super satisfied!!"August 01, 2020
"Mike and Tracie are very kind and provide excellent customer service. The facility offers a wide range of storage sizes as well as a box truck to rent at a competitive price. The only down side to the facility is the dumpsters (at no fault to the staff), they're just always full."July 21, 2020

"Mike Gallagher and the Life Storage Company at State College, Pennsylvania are a God send. During this pandemic, all of my daughters belongings were locked in her dorm room and we live 4 hours away. With the uncertainty of when we would be allowed to retrieve her belongings, I called Life Storage for some options. Mike not only calmed me down and talked me off the ledge, but he was so patient in helping me to secure a storage space. Mike continued to check in with me to find out how we were doing while also holding the storage space for me until we were ready. Thank you to Mike and Life Storage for being so decent and understanding during a time when that is not always the case."May 29, 2020

"Exploring the need for storage in the area. Mike was extremely friendly and helpful with questions. Convenient, secure and very reasonable price."February 19, 2020
"I cannot say enough about Mike and Tracie. They have been so incredibly kind and helpful. I am over at the locker at least once a week and I am always greeting with a friendly hello, a smile and a wave. We store completed Jared Boxes in a locker. Life Storage has generously donated a locker for us to store our Jared Boxes. In addition, the use of of one additional locker over the holiday is so appreciated. A Jared Box is a plastic shoebox filled with games and toys and fun activities. Boxes are delivered to on a regular basis to local hospitals. The use of this storage locker has been such an amazing help. I would highly recommend Life Storage. Cindy Kolarik, The Jared Box Project www.thejaredbox.com"January 23, 2020
"Mike and Tracie are the best. I have to go to our locker weekly and without a doubt I know I will be greeted with a smile and wave as I come and go. Our non-profit (The Jared Box Project) has been lucky enough to find a space here to store completed Jared Boxes until the hospitals needs them. When the weather hasn't been the greatest (freezing temperatures) and I need a little extra help with our lock, they are there to help me out without asking a question. The use of the storage locker has been a tremendous help to our organization. I highly recommend Life Storage to anyone looking for storage options."January 23, 2020
