Hotel was very nice, clean and would recommend. The hotel staff were friendly, the lobby and room were both very clean. Overall a great hotel. No problems with anything although it was just a one night stop over.

This hotel is perfect if you want a place to sleep and be nearby to many points of interest including Penn State, Penn's Cave, etc. The rooms are the best part as the lobby and restaurant look worn. Don't expect too much and you will be very happy here.

Severely inflated rates due to a home football game; limited game day shuttle; bar and restaurant not open past 9:00 pm even on weekends. Prepare to have to walk or drive for a evening dinner or nightcap.

We recently stayed at the HGI for a Penn State football weekend. Luckily we were able to use Hilton Honors points because the costs on game weekends can be really really high. The location is great though....very close to the stadium. The hotel is very easy to find and has easy access in and out. The rooms are comfortable and given how busy it was they were generally very quiet. The staff here was very helpful. We had breakfast one more and it was the standard HGI fare....generally it was OK.

We would highly recommend this but would never pay the high football weekend rates for the bigger games.

This hotel is very nice. It is conveniently located near Penn State, particularly Beaver Stadium, and they offered shuttles to the game (not back). I used HHonors points to book ths room, thankfully as it was expesive. We didnt realize the proximity to the stadium and did not know they were playing at home the next day. We were just passing through. So as i relates to price I would say, it was not a good "value," but we were very happy with the room, service, and the restaurant. It woud have been a better value if the Nittany Lions were away. On a side not, if you are a Penn State fan, they offer packages for game days. The restaurant was exceptional, and they offered dishes featuring local produce and meats. Flavor was fantastic and prics were reasonable. Hot tub was too hot.

Very nice hotel! Close to Beaver Stadium and the campus. Rooms were very clean and set up comfortably. We stay here as a midpoint for some of our trips and we are always welcomed by very friendly staff. They are doing some minor renovations on the lobby area but it was still kept clean.

Everything about this hotel was lovely and top notched, from the restaurant to all the excellent employees. It was a pleasure to experience. I would highly reccommend this hotel to all that are visiting the area, especially those that might be visiting Penn State College.
