I booked this hotel for an extended weekend while attending a wedding at Penn State. Downtown State College and the university were very easy to get to by car or a cheap cab ride - just a straight shot down College Ave! Our room and the hotel itself was very comfortable.

We arrived at the hotel an hour before check in and room wasn't ready. They said they would call and at 3pm still no call but went to check on room anyways. Yes the room was ready so went on in. Very big spacious room with the whirlpool tub. Oh how excited I was for that later that night. The shower was big with lots of gadgets which looked cool except when hubby jumped in for quick shower it took 5 mins to figure out how to turn on! LOL! The tv had tons of movie channels and good shows. Actually very surprising because most hotels are lacking in that area. Went to get into whirlpool with lots of gadgets.......we could never get the faucet to work. Only the sprayer which filled up the tub in 30mins!! HA! So all in all place was clean and the workers were nice. Nice little restaurant/bar and free wifi. Just skip the $160 a night whirlpool room. The other rooms were just as nice. Very close to the campus and nice restaurants.

Cannot thank Hilton and their design engineers enough for the foresight and capability of their handicapped accessible roll in shower room. We have stayed at "other" hotel chains promising accessibility and we cannot even get my sisters wheelchair into the bathroom! This was truly a GREAT PLACE to stay. Clean, safe, comfortable and accessible!

Very clean hotel with a helpful and friendly staff. Location was very convenient to all State College destinations. I feel this hotel is a great value for the cost. I have always been happy with my stays at other Hilton Garden Inns and this one is another winner. I would definitely stay here without hesitation the next time I go to State College.

I stayed here on a recent road trip from Cedar Point in Ohio to NYC. I was quite satisfied with this property which, while far from being anything exceptional or special, provided decent comfort for the price you pay. The check in clerk was very friendly and helpful and gave me good advice where to find a pizza delivery service that night which was a public holiday in the US. The room was clean and fairly comfortable but styled in the typical totally outdated US motel design which I really dislike. The only real issue was with the bathroom that could do with a replacement of the yuckie plastic shower curtain but had excellent water pressure in the shower. The mattress has a strange "adjust the firmness" system which basically meant it inflated some airpockets inside if you adjusted it to firmer. Felt a bit odd and not really my thing but still better than those worn and wobbly old mattresses you sometimes get elsewhere.
