Location close to PSU

Very happy with the property and the staff. I have no further comment

About 2 miles from the center of campus, on the “main drag” on Campus Ave, this was a nice blend of convenience, value and comfort. Huge rooms (sleeping area and bathroom), quiet and clean. Perfect for what we needed during PSU move-in for our daughter.

I booked and paid for a suite through Orbitz. When I arrived, I was told that they had accidentally given my room away (it was 3:30pm, check-in time had barely even started.) They were sorry, but I would just be getting a standard room. No mention of any refund. When I reminded them that I already PAID for the SUITE, they said I would have to take it up with Orbitz since that was who I paid. This was their error and they offered me absolutely nothing as compensation. Orbitz did end up refunding the difference and gave me an additional $25 coupon toward a future booking, but the Hilton did nothing. My family and I had no choice but to accept smaller accommodations, with not even a restaurant voucher or anything in apology. Very unacceptable in the hospitality industry.

Perfect hotel for us. Close to campus. Clean rooms. Friendly staff.

We came for our daughter's graduation and our stay was great. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone coming to State College. Everything was great!!

Hotel was super clean , the staff was super friendly and accommodating. Parking lot was not convient and my car also got sprayed by a fire extinguisher . Location to campas not convient either.

Hotel desk staff and room were great. Room was great and larger than expected. Can't say the same about the staff at the restaurant.

It was lovely and the price was perfect. Disappointed when we got there to see that it was an indoor pool, but the patios that were available made up for it. The staff member who checked us in was on duty when we checked out (does she get any time off?!) and she was incredibly helpful. Her last name was Musser; I do not remember her first name. I think she should be commended for her professionalism. She went out of her way to find out local information for us. We had lunch at the hotel and were super pleased by not just the caliber of the food but by the price and the waitress as well.

Excellent Rooms clean , staff attentive and constant shuttle back and forth to PSU . No car necessary once you're there.

Nice and clean room, nice people, conveniently located.

The place was very clean. Room was great and was very close to the fireworks. We would stay again.

Nice place, clean, good location, nice staff. Jacuzzi didn't work in the pool area, which was a bummer.

Staff was very helpful and hotel amenities were great.

Every thing went fine at the hotel

Attend a concert. The stuff was very friendly!

hotel is clean, 2 miles from downtown, convenient location the bed is a little smaller than queen size as they advertised. more like a double.

The Hilton Garden Inn was clean room. Nice white fresh towels. The refrigerator in the room was very convenient. Friendly and accomodating staff. The restaurant had a nice selection of breakfast foods. A pleasant waiter.

Good hotel for the Penn state university stay. Close to campus and the surrounding shopping and towns.
