We stayed overnight to tour Penn state with our son in the morning. Staff was friendly, room was clean and breakfast included in the morning. Breakfast consisted of eggs, potatoes, granola, yogurt, fresh fruit, make your own waffle, bagels, small pastry, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and juice. Located only 5 minutes from Penn state. We would definitely stay again if... More

One of the best Hampton inns I've stayed at. Very clean, great staff, great location. The breakfast had great variety and very pleasant staff. The bathrooms were large compared to other Hamptons I've stayed at.

I love to stay at this location. This location was close to the Penn state campus. The lobby was great we had friends and family there to celebrate before the big women's basketball game.I would recommend this hotel to anyone because it was great and close to the campus.

The room was comfortable with good amenities. Always an active facility with visiting families of Penn State students and even opposing sports teams in town for competition. Breakfast buffet had a different variety of hot food choices each of the 3 morning we were there, as well as the usual fruit, juice, yogurt, pastries and bread products.

Great location to Penn State - University Park campus. Very clean and updated rooms and bathrooms. Breakfast was great. More than just continental style foods. We stayed overnight for a college visit/orientation to the school. Many other families also there for same event or for the football game.

The hotel was fine, staff was great, room's were slightly dated, but clean. Although it was my fault for not digging deeper into the location, 400 plus a night, and not on campus was not an appropriate price.

I usually stay here on my visits to Stae College, PA. Greta hotel and value for this area. I've stayed at others in the area, but this is certainly the best. Less expensive than some of the other Penn State owned hotels and is consistently clean.

I have stayed here several times. The staff is excellent. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The hotel is located near Penn State and the highway. The furniture is a little dated but this is not an issue.

The room we were in had 2 double beds, which was a bit odd. The mattress we were on felt like a slab of concrete, and obviously wasn't very comfortable, but the pillows were nice. The internet worked well and was fairly quick. The breakfast in the morning was nothing special, and wasn't as good as most other Hamptons I've... More
