Everything about this hotel makes it easy to visit state college. The location is easy to get to and convenient. The staff is always friendly and the rooms are spacious and clean. The prices are also always reasonable. I have stayed here multiple times and have never had a problem with the location.

Terrible service. After the football game, most of the guests left the hotel early in the morning. We told the front desk at 7:30 a.m. We will like to change a room and stay one more night. The front desk told me when the room is ready will call us. 11:59 a.m. I went to front desk. She told us... More

Spent the weekend attending Women's Volleyball games. Hotel is close to Campus and only a very short drive to greater State College area. Room was clean and quiet. Restaurant in the past was fine. Lobby is nice to sit by fireplace and chill out.

On our way to New Haven we stayed one night and it was a welcome respite from a long traveling day. The Staff was very friendly, the room spacious and clean. It was nice to have a full service restaurant on site, so we did not have to go out to dine. Good value!

We are season Penn State ticket holders and have stayed at many of the State College hotels. This was our first football weekend (Maryland game) stay at the Hilton, as our regular go-to hotels were booked. From the moment we entered the beautiful lobby and restaurant area, we knew we were in for a different experience. The lobby was super... More

I go to State College quite often for business. I recently stayed at this hotel and will go back again in the future, as I really enjoyed my experience here. The decor is nice, updated, with a botanical feel to it. The resturant had good food and had the added benefit of offering some additional HHonors points for spending $25... More

the staff at this hotel was extremely friendly and helpful. Beautiful lobby, comfortable, clean rooms, and good food in the restaurant. Great location right off Rt 322 and close to Penn State University.

Excellent place to stay! Clean, Friendly Well Maintained! Great prices on food and very tasty. Runs very efficient! Not noisy at all. Furniture is very comfortable! Beds are great! I don't like that you have to have 200 minimum characters in this space. What more can I say!

I have gone to this hotel several times after a 5 hour drive across the state of PA. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful.

Go some place else. No free breakfast for the price much higher than other hotels in the area that offer free breakfast and a lower per stay price. Bathroom had no exhaust fans so taking a shower was no fun. Wallpaper was pealing off the bathroom walls.
