Reviewed 25 August 2014

Great place to stay as we settled our child back into Penn State College. We had a very lovely, clean comfortable room with extremely comfortable beds! Perfect buffet breakfast with a nice variety to start off our busy day.

Hello Jordan R,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review. I'm glad you and your family found our accommodations pleasing during the time of your stay. Traveling and moving a child into a dorm or an apartment can be quite the task. I hope you were able to find some downtime and relaxation during your stay. If ever in the State College area, please consider visiting us again.

Cheers,



Mark Burnett

I often choose to stay at Hampton Inns because you usually know what to expect. This stay was no exception. The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. The breakfast bar was typical and well tended, even though we were at the tail-end of breakfast. My only complaint (and it's trivial) was that all the towels were shedding fuzz all over us. Not a big deal. A pleasant stay, overall.

Dear Alan P, Thank you for writing a review for us. We are happy to read that you enjoyed your stay with us while visiting Penn State, and got to enjoy our complimentary breakfast in the morning. I am sorry that the fitness facility was not up to your standards though. There is a gym in the area that we can recommend you to go that has more equipment available next time you come by. Once again, thank you for writing the review.

My husband , Victor and I, Irene Marinucci thoroughly enjoyed out stay at your hotel. It was quiet, very clean, perfect temperature, and no untoward odors. It had everything we needed. The price was quite affordable . The breakfast buffet was wonderful. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Although we didn t use the pool we did get a coffee and tea and sat by the pool for an hour or so. The pool was very clean. We wish there had been a bar or restaurant in the hotel, but there were several choices outside within walking distance. We would highly recommend your hotel to others.

Room Tip: Not sure what to say. we were completely satisfied with ours.. If you are a late sleeper. The north...

Green Features: Not sure what exactly they are. Except there was no smoking in hotel therefore no stale smoke smells. Yeah!

Had problems from start to finish. Stayed 2 nights tried to get accommodations changed prior to arrival was told by front desk this could not be done, but could call 800 number to pay for upgrade. 800 number said they could not do upgrade but hotel could when we got there. Could not. It was chilly summer night but outside pool was heated which was nice. Beds were as hard as a rock and very uncomfortable. Also comforters very lumpy from laundry not knowing how to fluff. First morning breakfast good but Sunday morning, staff could not keep up with breakfast demand. Everything including cold items were unstocked, ran out of batter for waffles, eggs, sausage, fruit, rolls and toast. Not woth the stay. The Holiday Inn Express was right across the road. Recommend you chose another hotel

Green Features: Good. Low flush toilets. Would leave towels if you wished.

We ended up here after we fled from a filthy cottage we had booked months in advance. On arrival at the cottage, in Spring Mills, PA, we found there was no running water--the underground pipes leaked so badly, we had little or no water pressure. There were MANY other issues with the cottage, and we were desperate for a place to stay that was clean, had running water, and room to prepare snacks, and to spread out all of our stuff for an extended family reunion stay.

Lucky for us, this Hampton Inn had some available rooms, despite the fact that the arts festival was in full swing. We paid very little more per night than we did for the cottage we fled. The room was comfortable, clean, the air conditioning worked, and it was equipped with a nice food preparation area away from the bathroom area, including a sink, small refrigerator, microwave, and plenty of counter-top and storage space.

The one thing we noticed wrong with the room was that the carpet in the middle of the room was frayed, but this did not detract from our use or enjoyment.

This Hampton Inn is located conveniently near a shopping plaza which has a Kohl's, a Dick's Sporting Goods, a Wegman's with a complete food court, and several restaurants. The nearby neighborhoods are pleasant to walk in during the early morning hours. There is a Santander Bank ATM at the edge of the parking lot.

The continental breakfast is bountiful; they did not run out of anything during the three days we stayed. The staff keeps the tables and breakfast area clean, unlike some Hamptons where we have stayed previously.

We did have to check once to see if our room was scheduled to be cleaned. Once we went out for the morning, and returned in the early afternoon, and our room had not been cleaned. Another time we put out the tissue box to indicate that it was empty. When we returned from our day's activities, it had not been replaced. We had to notify the desk, and we were immediately supplied.

Overall, it was a comfortable and clean location, far superior to the cottage we booked months in advance.

Regarding other Hotels in the area this was a little cheaper. The location was good for what we were doing. Right off the highway and close to resturants and shopping. It is clean and quiet. The complimentary breakfast was OK. The front desk was somewhat rude. She did not greet us when we arrived. I checked in ON-LINE (which was wonderful) and still waited to "check in". Otherwise a good hotel.
