We were greeted with a smile and in our junior suite within 5 minutes. Super friendly staff and immaculate quiet rooms. Perfect location if you want to go downtown or to campus! We will be back soon!!

After dealing with everything on the outside, coming inside to forget about things and relax make this a great place to stay. Location and things available make this an unbeatable stop. Friendly, informative, helpful and clean. Can't ask for much more.

Loud heater in room, hard to sleep! Drippy faucet. Two shower heads and water pressure was poor in both. You needed instructions to use it. Breakfast was mediocre and it was extra. Save your money and eat breakfast at the Dunkin' Donuts two doors down.

The doors to the rooms however slammed very loudly so when guests left their room you knew it. Price was good because it was not a football...

The air conditioning would not cool even though we put it on the lowest setting. It would simply shut off. Also, it was noisy outside our room. We have been loyal Hilton Garden Inn guests, but this hotel got stingy in not including any more than two breakfast coupons. The manager would not bend. It's not like the breakfast is...

My family of five and two friends stayed for four days during Penn State Graduation. This hotel is one of the cleanest and freshest hotels we've ever stayed at. The bathrooms were immaculate. Even the stairwells were spotless. The lobby is modern, warm, and welcoming with beautiful seating, cozy fireplace, lemon water, and cookies. The staff are among the friendliest...

Hotel was great! Rooms were very clean and quiet. I enjoyed the breakfast buffet and we liked the microwave, refrigerator, and coffee maker in the rooms. It was a 5 minute ride to the swimming pool. I would stay here again:)

We stayed here while in town for a swim meet. The rooms were very clean and the hotel was nice and quiet. There is no continental breakfast, but the restaurant on site does do it. We will definitely stay here again.
