This is exactly what I expect from a Hilton Garden Inn. Clean, good WiFi, free water, comfy bed. For business travel, I like it predictable! Very nice hotel. Close enough to campus, right off the highway. Near a good brewery. I didn't eat anything but breakfast at the hotel but a local friend later told me the restaurant is really... More

Clean rooms, good lobby, 1 mile away from the university campus or downtown and helps that there is a very good restaurant onsite. The staff were accommodating to find me a personal space to make some calls and attend meetings on a busy day- that won me over.

We really liked the Hotel, it was clean, the front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Harris the steward was extremely helpful and very personable. Our waiter John W for dinner was outstanding. Our only problem was the rude,condescending and snobby attitude of the Mater'd

This is a nice hotel, and great location for Penn State Famlies. However, I had a bad experience with our room. The shower did not work properly and was leaking water everywhere, and the TV remote did not work at all. Unacceptable for a Hilton property.

Extremely personable, friendly and helpful staff. From the manager (Brendan) to the front desk representative (Dan) to the gentleman who shuttled us to the downtown area (Darrius), every employee was an absolute pleasure to interact with during my visit. Room was clean and recently renovated. I am definitely coming back.

Staff were extremely kind and helpful! There was an error in our initial reservation but the staff responded promptly and there were no further issues. The lobby was a great meeting place for our family and wedding prep.

I've been to State College several times on business and I've stayed here more than once. The first time there was a lot of renovation going on and you couldn't use the elevator, but that was a minor inconvenience and they are back in service now. The rooms are fantastic, the staff friendly and helpful and the overall appearance is... More

My son and daughter-in-law were at State College for three years and we stayed at this hotel every visit but one. We probably spent thirty or forty nights there and ate that many meals as well. The location was convenient near downtown and the expressway. Several fast food restaurants and other hotels are in the area. We had the benefit... More

Property has been renovated and is great along with great staff. Breakfast is great. Good location, easy to get to from major bypass route and easy to get to major points in State College and University venues for sports or other interests.
