This is a nice, clean full-service hotel in a cute town. The rooms are clean, the bed very comfortable. All amenities you'd need. Breakfast is made-to-order and yummy. Staff were wonderful. We have found Hilton Garden Inns to be more comfortable than others in the past and this rings true here.

Very clean and well kept! Definitely worth your stay! Have not eaten at the restaurant so can't comment on the food. The rooms are very clean and the Keurig coffee makers are a nice touch with fridge and microwaves in every room

It's difficult to find an establishment, in State College no less, that provides comfort and convenience while traveling for business. Look no further than the Hilton Garden Inn at State College. My associates and I were all very impressed by the cordial service (Brendan, in particular), pristine upkeep, and all-around indelible experience we were afforded. We were able to enjoy... More

Food is awful. Breakfast was really poor (and not included in your stay). Rooms were clean and hotel was quiet. Driving distance to PSU but if you want to walk to everything and not deal with the traffic around PSU, stay at the Days Inn On Pugh Street.

First class hotel in State College, Pa. Very quiet, clean and the entire staff is courteous and professional! Breakfast and diner are all cooked to your liking, all I can say is the meals are awesome, not like the same ole' same meals that you always get when you go out to eat.

Our group had an excellent time staying for a wedding in state college. The service was wondering and the staff was most helpful especially Brendan at the front desk. Would love to stay here again and we greatly appreciate the kind hospitality.

Most of the staff were very friendly & helpful. The most unhelpful & 'nasty' was actually the Manager. Brendan, mesha & Bonnie all went out of their way to make our stay pleasurable & they were all working very hard over this difficult weekend. The free shuttle transportation was a massive bonus for me as I didn't have a car.... More

We were in town for a surgery at Mount Nittany. The folks at the front desk were EXTREMELY patient, helpful and enthusiastic. we needed to extend our stay and then at the last minute we no longer needed the room. Nothing was a problem. Also, a lovely outdoor space to enjoy a summer's evening. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

Really enjoyed my stay at the Hilton Garden Inn State College Pa. Modest gym but good cardio. Complimentary headphones for awesome T/V on tread mill. Hot tub was invigorating, private time while working out and enjoying hot tub.

Room was big, very clean and cozy. All of the staff was accommodating and the food was good. I was there for a work event at Penn State and the hotel is located in a really great area and very close to downtown. Highly recommend especially for the price.
