Nice staff, crowded wedding weekend. Couldn't get a decent breakfast and seating. Couldn't control room temperature. Not enough pillows for the room. Cable didn't have a directory. Overall frugal experience.

Q8626XMmaryc, I am very sorry to read that you did not have an enjoyable experience with us. We do attempt to make everyone as happy as we can during breakfast and unfortunately on very busy weekends there is the possibility of everyone coming down at once and limiting the seating options. We will certainly check on the thermostat in the... More

Rate is competitive but the overall condition and quality of the hotel is poor. Needs renovations. Breakfast is fine, surroundings smell of manure which is not the hotel's fault but they do absolutely nothing to counter or at least mask it. Overall a rough place to stay, not worth the price, very disappointing for a Hilton hotel... though seems to... More

We stayed at the Hampton Inn in State College in Mid May 2016. It was a nice location for getting to Penn State and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good, however seating was limited, and difficult to get a table. Rooms were comfortable as were the beds. Would recommend staying here.

I realize graduation weekend will cause the prices to increase. However, charging approximately $450, including taxes, per night, for a minimum two night stay is outlandish. Good breakfast, ancient gym. Gr8 staff!
