We are repeat guests of the Hampton Inn State College, as our daughter attends PSU. It is always clean, the staff is friendly and accommodating and the rates are reasonable. We typically do not use the fitness center or other amenities, but it’s nice to know they are available. The breakfast is a bonus and they offer bags to go...

I decided to stay at the Hampton Inn because although it is sometimes more expensive than other hotels it tends to be nicer with more comfortable beds and pillows without getting excessively pricey. I gave in to spending the extra money, but this is the first hampton inn I have stayed in that was uncomfortable and looked like it hadn't...

Hotel is in a good location (easy access to main roads), it has substantial parking and a quality sports pub (Letterman's) in the parking lot if you don't want to drive and they provide a 10% discount if you show your room key. It was clean and the staff was friendly. My only issue was with the pillows (too soft),...

Very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a nice variety of hot and cold choices. Each day different hot items were available. Coffee is available 24 hours a day. Nice treat. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

This Hampton is located close to Penn State University and downtown State College, Pennsylvania. It is close to route US 322 and Interstate I99, both major central Pennsylvania highways. It sits on Pennsylvania route 26, or College Avenue, in State College, PA. It was reasonably priced, had the traditional Hampton breakfast items, allowed online check-in, and will do email receipts....

Very friendly stay especially since we checked in later than planned. Young man at front desk was very polite and helpful which was nice after a long and frustrating day of air travel. Will gladly stay here again.

From check-in to check-out perfect! Clean, comfortable, great breakfast, knowledge and friendly staff. Couldn't ask for anything more. Even though hotel was crowded with guests for the mid-year Penn State Graduation, I didn't feel rushed nor was the staff overwhelmed.

Just as good as it gets. You can pay more, but you can't get better accommodations and service! I stay at this Hampton several time a year, and have never had a bad experience. I find this to be the case at every Hampton Inn I have ever used.

Warm and friendly hotel close to restaurants and shopping. When I stay by the university parking is usually a level underground. Here it was steps from the lobby. The tv worked well with many channels. I recently stayed in a hotel with a very old system so this was a plus for me
