Good service, friendly staff. Avoid first level rooms. Damp/wet carpeting and main work area for staff. Some very good dinner selections but price seemed high for location. Close to highways and downtown.

The first floor is below the lobby, which is not necessarily bad but your cell phone signal will struggle down there. They did move me to the top floor at my request. I had an issue with cigarette smoke billowing into my room through the air duct. It was not as bad when the air conditioner was running, but as... More

The Hilton Garden Inn was clean and confortable - the beds were amazing. Very convenient to Penn State. Adequate gym and indoor pool. I found the hosuekeeping staff to be extremely friendly. Front desk staff left something to be desired ... when we checked in there was nobody in line and three people behind the desk. It wasn't so much... More

The first thing we noticed was the fresh smell of this hotel. Not even a hint of that moldy, musty, hotel smell. The room sparkled it was so clean. When we travel from now on we will stay at the Hilton Garden Inn!

I've stayed here several times. It's still clean, but it's starting to get sort of shabby now. The service was good- everyone was nice and friendly. But while the bed is comfortable and the bathrooms clean, the carpet is a little sticky and dated. Not sure why, but I had to wear socks the entire time I was there. A... More

In a college town (Penn State University) hotels often show signs of wear and tear. Not this hotel. A second pleasant surprise was the meeting space and the attentive food service personnel who tended to the needs of our small group of eight. The room was clean and quite by accident I parked at the closest door! The halls were... More

The location of this facility is ideal to Beaver Stadium, the Bryce Jordan Center and especially Pegula Arena. The rooms are comfortable, clean and well furnished but the in-room Jacuzzi is VERY difficult to get into for anyone under 5'9".

I will start this review by saying that for this trip, I was NOT a business traveler. I can see why this hotel would attract business travelers, as it is in a good location and is a "no fuss" place where someone could go from their room to their car very quickly. Now the negative: - The hotel is built... More
