Hotel gets a 10 in all categories but one. Avoid breakfast bar. Overcooked and cold. Service at hotel itself was fabulous. Rooms very clean. Indoor pool and exercise room well maintained and fun. It was a football weekend and rooms were quiet. Front desk was very helpful.

This hotel is pretty standard for a 3 star hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable and looks like millions of other rooms. The pool is small, but at least there is one. The staff is friendly and helpful. The internet is very poor.

I stayed here for the PSU football game. Services was great and within 1 mile of the stadium. The front desk was very helpful for directions and local entertainment. The only complaint is the walls seem thin.

Great hotel just outside of downtown. Stayed with family of 5 and would definitely stay again. Room was clean with plenty of room. Rate was fair. Close enough to everything without being right downtown.

I needed a place to put my dad up while his bathroom was remodeled. He's in a wheelchair so I booked a handicap accessible room for him. The room was very spacious and well laid out for his needs. The staff took really good care of him. The remod was done early so they didn't charge him for the extra... More

Looks like a very new hotel. Very clean, great location near the University. Nice that they have a bar, but too bad it closed too early at 9pm. Nice touch with the Keurig machines in the room. Definitely recommend.

Super great , clean and was centrally located to all the Penn State spots! We were more than pleasantly suprised as it was our first time staying at this hotel and on this side of State College. We really enjoyed the trip and will stay again!

I had a great experience with this hotel for business. Check-in was fast, the room was very clean, the restaurant was excellent, and it was a great value. It is also in a great location - very close to campus.

I regularly stay at Hilton related hotels and this Garden Inn was up to standards. What was exceptional was the restaurant. I got in late and was too tired to go search for a local restaurant like I usually would. So I went to the restaurant at the hotel. Garden Inns generally have a decent breakfast but don't usually have... More
