I recently stayed at this hotel. I would have to say the beds are comfortable I did meet some of the people there. I would like to say thank you to Brandon for the great room service and the extra towels he left for me. So thank you all the room service people do a wonderful job!

I have stayed at Hilton Garden Inn's before. This one tops the list. From the elegant entrance to the well-appointed rooms, to the outside lounge area, everything was immaculate. It was a pleasure to arrive at this location after a long day on the road. Thanks Brandon, at the front desk, for checking us in with a smile and helpful...

We have stayed at a couple places in the area. So far this is the best. Close to campus but not to close. Relatively new facility, clean and comfortable beds, direct tv, wifi in rooms. The bathroom shower was awesome because I like a lot of water pressure. The parking lot also is not cramped so you hope for limited...

Excellent hotel, good value, good breakfast, clean and comfortable, good location, 2 minutes from town and college. If you need to be at Penn State this is the hotel to stay at. utilize the shuttle service into and around town, beats looking for parking, fast service. better than uber. Lonny the shuttle driver was the best, excellent.

The hotel was in a good location to Penn State University. Restaurant was convenient. Their breakfast and dinner were good option if you didn't want to go out and dine. No issues - room was comfortable. Overall nice hotel for the $$.

Sara toney was awesome! Very reliable and saved us tons of money on transportation! Transported three of us with ease and was willing to change the destination with no complaints! She was so nice! We called the hotel and she was there within 10 minutes. Door to door service!

Always great service from the front desk to housekeeping. Genevieve always takes great care of my room, keeping it just like I like it. (when you spend 5 nights a week in a hotel, this is extremely important). The hotel restaurant food is great, but the bar closes at 9:00pm. The only downfall is the gym, equipment is old and...

We chose this location because of the indoor pool. The facility was very convenient in respect to the location of the college. The rooms were comfortable and the restaurant provided a very good breakfast.
