Due to the high rates of rooms in the PSU area for last Thursday, I decided to use my Hilton Honor Points to book this hotel. When I signed in, I confirmed that there was a sofa bed in our room. Front desk said no but was kind to find us a room that had a sofa bed. Hugh room.... More

It features a full breakfast, gym and bar. The staff was courteous at check-in and check-out. The room was very clean and fresh with excellent features including a refrigerator and multiple... More

I stayed here last minute during a business trip and was excited as it had received good reviews. It was expensive ($260) but since it was last minute I took it. The hotel is undergoing renovations, but the room I was in had not been done. The lobby is very nice but the layout of the hotel requires a lengthy... More

close to Penn State. Undergoing updates 3rd floor was in process when I was there. Lobby is on 2nd floor but you walk straight in off the parking lot. Different kind of layout. Elevators are a long trek down the hallway. So I stayed on 2nd floor closer to lobby. Rooms were clean. Staff was fantastic. Lobby restaurant run by... More

Our family of five were extremely happy with our stay. The room we stayed in was recently renovated. There was work going on at the hotel during our stay, but we did not hear a peep. We will definitely be back next year.

My wife and I stayed here the evening before my graduation from Penn State. The hotel is very nice. It is strategically located near campus. Service was great. The only downside...no free breakfast and the air conditioning unit in the room was very noisy, Overall, a good stay for one night.

I'm a Hilton Honors member and have stayed at numerous Hilton's over the years, too many to count in fact, and this one has to rank on the low end of that list. The property appears a little shabby and the rooms kind of reflect that. We had a toilet issue in ours, the beds are not the best, and... More

Although there were parts of the Hilton Garden Inn under renovation when we stayed there - you would hardly know. Everything was clean and working. Staff very courteous and helpful.

I was traveling with my grandson who really like the hotel. First of all the room I requested was given to me, I liked that. The room was comfortable and... More
