The hotel really was nice! We knew our trip was going to be a stressful one, so we were glad to be staying at a Garden Inn. We were there four nights and two of those nights, we were locked out, key would not work. It happened twice; carried everything up the elevator, key would not work...loaded everything back up,...

Stayed on an overnight trip from upstate NY. Showed up a little early for check in but staff was kind enough to accommodate me - the people at the counter were quite friendly and able to recommend a nice restaurant for dinner which was a treat! (Cooper's Seafood ***** 5 star in my book) Quick check-in no hassles. Had 1... More

Hi Kevin C, Thank you for the Trip Advisor review. Yes, we do have a great location as we are easily accessible to I-81 as well as local establishments. Additionally, our solid built property does keep the Interstate and local traffic noises to a non-issue level. We do apologize for the two occurrences with the room and WiFi. We have... More

We stay at this HGI regularly when visiting family in the area. The rooms are consistently clean and the front desk staff is friendly. This time, as an HHonors member, we took advantage of the advance online check in which allows you to select your room location - what a great feature.

My daughter and I stayed here for one night on the way home from a long road trip. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The location was great - very close to the highway as well as shops/mall and restaurants. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only item that stopped me from giving this an "excellent " rating was... More

Certainly not the worst, but definitely not what I expect from HGI. Our room stunk. My wife thought it smelled like cigarettes, but to me it just smelled musty like the room had been closed up and damp for way too long. The carpet was old and warn, clean, but just felt odd to walk on. Maybe they'd had the... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hilton. The front desk staff was very nice and professional. The lobby is nice and spacious for a quick business meeting or just for relaxing. Every afternoon they put out water with lemon, tea, or coffee with some cookies or other snacks. It's nice to come back to this. The rooms are appointed... More

I am usually a hopper between Marriott and Hilton. This Hilton Garden Inn has been so kind and so accommodating, that I have opted to rent their rooms for vacation and business.

Hotel is located right of I-81 and next to several restaurants and a Starbucks! Hotel was clean, staff were friendly, gym was fine. We had a nice experience and would stay at this hotel again. It was a busy weekend with families but we had no issues.
