Stayed here for PSU Blue-White game; rate/points to stay were way above average because it was an event weekend. Hotel provided a sheet for stays for home football weekends - ouch! Up to $500 per night (2 night minimum)! It might be worth the cost during a non-event weekend - when rates are reasonable (<$150) but certainly not during an... More

I was a little hesitant when booking, but I'm glad I selected this hotel. The staff is EXCELLENT (especially Chelsea & MJ), the location is very close to the campus and they have a shuttle. Our room was clean and the food was good too.

Beds are outdated and very uncomfortable. Reported problem to hotel staff and was advised to adjust bed firmness through a dial on the mattress. Followed staff's recommendation but the bed was still very uncomfortable. Beds need to be replaced to match the quality provided by Hampton Inn.

Pros: The staff at this location was excellent; room was very clean and the bedding comfortable; mini fridge and coffee fixings: on site restaurant/bar: free shuttle within a 5 mile radius. Cons: Inadequate ventilation in the bathroom; our particular room was sited in a noisy location (next to cleaning staff room); pricey for a non-football/event weekend.

The Hilton Garden Inn State College is a clean comfortable location on the outskirts of the Penn State campus. It is a five minute drive from the Pegula Ice Arena, the Bryce Jordan Center and Beaver Stadium. The room decor is slightly dated and the internet speeds are not up to the latest standards, but the rooms are clean and... More

Nice hotel, clean and comfortable. I will stay again when in State College, PA The bar closed at 9:30 pm on a weeknight, I was looking forward to a cocktail before bed. Breakfast in hotel was nice, eggs to order included along with breakfast bar of hot & cold selections for $10.00. I find that most Hilton Garden Inns are... More

This hotel is nice, but could use some updates. We stayed on the 4th floor and it literally took 10 minutes for the hot water to get to us. Also, the pool was freezing when we were there and you really couldn't enjoy it, which was a bummer for the kids. The rooms are nice size the staff is friendly.... More

We have stayed at this Hotel twice. It is located in a part of town that makes any event easily accessible. The staff is always so helpful and accommodating. The small bar and restaurant provide a nice escape (when needed) from the high energy college town. The breakfast is always very good. We love staying here!

Check in was quick and the accomodations were great. Newer hotel so the lobby was impressive and rooms were clean and comfortable. There was no information around about wifi so you're figuring that out on your own or calling the front desk. Harrison's was a nice bar/restaurant (only had drinks), but they close at 9pm on a Saturday, which was... More
