Just wrapped up a two night stay that was a business trip rolled into a fun weekend. Had a great experience from start to finish. The hotel itself was exactly what you expect from Hilton Garden Inn; very clean, with nice sized rooms and excellent accommodations all around. The staff was terrific as well.

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 stayed 1 night having booked an accessible room. The room had just one grab rail in the bath tub and no bath stool. The manager arranged for a roll-in shower immediately with a courteous and professional response. The room had been booked originally through the hotel's phone number but apparently had gone to a central booking facility with no...

Pleasantly surprised with this small hotel. The service and professionalism of the staff was excellent. Most importantly is that it was immaculately clean. ( bathrooms, baseboards,) linens were very comfortable as well. I would recommend it!

We chose this hotel to attend our son's graduation from Penn State. Excellent location, super clean, great room size, charming, good price, very helpful staff. A very nice detail was the decoration congratulating the graduates in the lobby. Price was a little high due to the commencement season, but we paid a lower price compared with others in the same...

Stayed at this hotel for graduation, 2017. Other hotels were charging more due to the high demand for a busy weekend. This was a great hotel and the price was reasonable - also location was pretty close to campus.

Nothing to complain about. Nothing to be excited about. Did what to needed to do and no more. I stayed two nights and all was fine. I was downstairs so felt a bit gloomy on approach but once in the room all was just ok with this typical and this bland type of hotel.
