This hotel was conveniently located to the college. Accommodations was nice and it's always a bonus to have complimentary breakfast. Loved the ability to do the digital check in and even be able to select your room.

We stayed at the Hampton Inn for only one night while the Michigan Hockey team was playing Penn State. I really enjoyed the digital check-in where I could pick my own room. That was awesome. The rooms were small, but very clean. The overall staff has been very well trained...they were super friendly the entire trip.

We would definitely stay again if...

One of the best Hampton inns I've stayed at. Very clean, great staff, great location. The breakfast had great variety and very pleasant staff. The bathrooms were large compared to other Hamptons I've stayed at.

I love to stay at this location. This location was close to the Penn state campus. The lobby was great we had friends and family there to celebrate before the big women's basketball game.I would recommend this hotel to anyone because it was great and close to the campus.

The room was comfortable with good amenities. Always an active facility with visiting families of Penn State students and even opposing sports teams in town for competition. Breakfast buffet had a different variety of hot food choices each of the 3 morning we were there, as well as the usual fruit, juice, yogurt, pastries and bread products.

Great location to Penn State - University Park campus. Very clean and updated rooms and bathrooms. Breakfast was great. More than just continental style foods. We stayed overnight for a college visit/orientation to the school. Many other families also there for same event or for the football game.

The hotel was fine, staff was great, room's were slightly dated, but clean. Although it was my fault for not digging deeper into the location, 400 plus a night, and not on campus was not an appropriate price.

I usually stay here on my visits to Stae College, PA. Greta hotel and value for this area. I've stayed at others in the area, but this is certainly the best. Less expensive than some of the other Penn State owned hotels and is consistently clean.
