“Great Hotel for a Great Price”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

I was a little hesitant when booking, but I'm glad I selected this hotel. The staff is EXCELLENT (especially Chelsea & MJ), the location is very close to the campus and they have a shuttle. Our room was clean and the food was good too.

Beds are outdated and very uncomfortable. Reported problem to hotel staff and was advised to adjust bed firmness through a dial on the mattress. Followed staff's recommendation but the bed was still very uncomfortable. Beds need to be replaced to match the quality provided by Hampton Inn.

I am sorry you did not get a good night's sleep on our Garden Sleep System bed. They are adjustable to your personal need and regret they did not meet your expectations. I will have our staff inspect the bed to make sure it is working properly.

Pros: The staff at this location was excellent; room was very clean and the bedding comfortable; mini fridge and coffee fixings: on site restaurant/bar: free shuttle within a 5 mile radius. Cons: Inadequate ventilation in the bathroom; our particular room was sited in a noisy location (next to cleaning staff room); pricey for a non-football/event weekend.

The Hilton Garden Inn State College is a clean comfortable location on the outskirts of the Penn State campus. It is a five minute drive from the Pegula Ice Arena, the Bryce Jordan Center and Beaver Stadium. The room decor is slightly dated and the internet speeds are not up to the latest standards, but the rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is best avoided here because the cost does not match the quality. Same with the bar and with a micro-brewery two blocks away the bar is not worth the time.

Nice hotel, clean and comfortable. I will stay again when in State College, PA The bar closed at 9:30 pm on a weeknight, I was looking forward to a cocktail before bed. Breakfast in hotel was nice, eggs to order included along with breakfast bar of hot & cold selections for $10.00. I find that most Hilton Garden Inns are a good choice for hotels in any area I have traveled.

This hotel is nice, but could use some updates. We stayed on the 4th floor and it literally took 10 minutes for the hot water to get to us. Also, the pool was freezing when we were there and you really couldn't enjoy it, which was a bummer for the kids.
The rooms are nice size the staff is friendly. There is no free breakfast here, though as a HHonors Gold member we could have had 2 free. Go to the Waffle Shop instead :)

This Hilton Garden Inn is conveniently located near the Penn State campus and downtown State College. Staff is helpful, rooms are clean and very comfortable. We've stayed here numerous times, it's our favorite hotel in State College!
