You ccould hear everyone around you. There was no microwave which is not unheard of. Its an incovenience but I know it happens. There was... More

We stayed here to take our kids to Camp Woodward which is about 45 minutes away. The hotel is clean and updated. There wasn't a refrigerator in our room like some so if you need one just be aware of that. They were able to keep my Daughter's medication in the kitchen fridge which was fine. The girls enjoyed the... More

We stayed at this Hampton Inn mid-March 2015 to watch the PA Game Commission NASP State Tournament. This hotel is literally around the corner from Beaver Stadium and other sports facilities. The rooms are very nice, in good condition, and the beds afford a good nights sleep. The complimentary breakfast was very good: all meats and eggs were served hot... More

We stayed here for one night before graduation. It is very close to the Bryce Jordan Center which is a plus and only a short drive downtown. It is like most Hampton Inn's and has a great hot free breakfast, although there isn't much seating so that is frustrating waiting for a seat holding a plate of food. The service... More

Stayed at this hotel using Hilton points while on a trip to drop my daughter off at cheer camp. We arrived late on Saturday night and the room was ready and staff was great. The breakfast the next morning was good and then we were off. No complaints about anything and I would recommend it. Good restaurant called Lettermans is... More

Very nice room, hotel, breakfast and staff during our visit. A restaurant directly in front of property. Would have been a 5 visit except the ice machine didn't work and carpet in our floor hallway was soiled. Well located.

This hotel is located about a half mile from downtown State College and the Penn State campus. We had an accessible room (130) with a roll-in shower. The shower had a rubber containment berm allowing smooth access while keeping water in the shower and not out on the bathroom floor (nice). We liked the location of our room...just off the... More

Typical Hampton, to be honest. Which is fine - this is my preferred brand. Somehow my reservation had been cancelled prior to my arrival (I make all of my own travel arrangements and I didn't have a cancellation email so I'm not sure what happened) but the desk clerk took care of everything. Made a new reservation and had me... More
