“Hampton Inn State College PA”
Reviewed 31 January 2010

We stayed in this hotel one night while attending track and field events at Penn State. The hotel is easily to get to from Interstates. Lot's of parking and an Olive Garden and Outback right next door. There are several other hotels right in the same complex so this is one of many. The hotel lobby is really nice and they always have coffee. The rooms were spacious and clean and the beds were wonderful. They leave no shampoo or conditioner and especially no shower caps in the room. My wife sent me down to the desk to ask for a shower cap but they had none. We also asked for a toothbrush and toohpaste and they had the toothpaste but were out of brushes. There was a coffee maker but no microwave or fridge. The Breakfast was okay with lot's of options but many things were slow to be refilled. They gave us a AAA discount so for $85, we were very happy with this Hilton owned hotel.

This is a great place. Three restaurants within walking distance. Clean rooms. Clean bathrooms. It's a great place. Some of the front desk help (college-aged) are a little bit lacking in customer service skills, but that's to be expected sometimes. The manager is great and I'd definitely stay here again.

I travel on business approximately 70 nights per year, and 100% of the time I choose Hampton Inn for my lodging. Hampton Inns are generally meticulous about the "details".

Recently I was in Central Pennsylvania and had the choice of staying at a Hampton Inn in Harrisburg or State College. The distance from either hotel to my client was approximately the same. I decided to try this particular Hampton Inn because of its proximity to restaurants and shopping venues.

The hotel is very nice -- well kept grounds, clean rooms. But as far as the "details", this Hampton doesn't measure up. A number of the little amenities are missing -- the most glaring of which is the lack of a coffee maker in the rooms.

Unfortunately I discovered the absence of coffee too late -- in the morning. In the bathroom where the coffeemaker would normally be, was a little sign. It said "Complimentary fresh brewed coffee is available in the lobby 24 hours per day". So there I was, in my jammies at 5:00 in the morning with no coffee, unless I got dressed and made my way to the lobby. I was not happy.

Why was the coffee so important? When I am on business travel, I get up early and do an hour or so of work in my room. So while I could have walked down to the lobby, I really just wanted to make some coffee in my room. Like I do in EVERY other Hampton Inn I have stayed in.

There were other things, too. Like no hand lotion in the bathroom, the breakfast buffet being totally stripped down after breakfast hours (most Hampton Inns keep some cereals, plates and utensils out all day), no morning newspaper by the door. Just little stuff, which taken individually could go unnoticed; but looking at them in total, this business traveler gets the feeling that this Hampton Inn is doing things 'on the cheap'.

I have canceled my reservations at this Hampton Inn and will be staying at the Hampton Inn Harrisburg. They know how to take care of the details.

We stayed at the Hampton Inn/Williamsburg Square for June 14 and 15, when my son had his Penn State orientation.

We were assigned a room for the handicapped, and so the room and bathroom appeared to be particularly large. The room was quite nice, and included both a desk and easy chair with matching upholstered footrest. My wife and I thought that the double bed was a couple of inches narrower than the doubles in most hotels. Also, the fitted sheets came up during the night.

The hotel is well appointed, with a public computer for the guests. The lobby is quite large, with a lot of seating, and also doubles as the breakfast eating area. Breakfasts are more substantial than the norm. The first morning we had poached eggs with sausage gravy, the second breakfast was french toast fingers and delicious sausage slices. In addition, there was an array of cereals, juices, muffins, english muffins, etc. for toasting.

The exercise room has one or two treadmills, a bike, a stepper, a situp/decline bench, and a small weighted ball. The outdoor pool is adequate for someone who wants to take a dip, but too small to swim laps.

They have 24 hour coffee, decaf, tea, and apples. At night, rather than just sitting in the room, we sat on the lobby couches, and had some coffee while watching a baseball game on the lobby tv.

The hotel is less than 10 minutes from campus, and there is an Olive Garden and an Outback Steakhouse across the parking lot. Since it was off season, we were able to eat at the Olive Garden without any wait, and at the Outback after a short wait.

The hotel is also near a shopping area with a Target, and there are other restaurants in the immediate area.

My family will undoubtedly stay at the Hampton Inn/Williamsburg Square again.

We needed a place overnight after our son's graduation, and they actually had a room. It was well appointed, very large, and very clean. The staff was on top of things, and made sure we were satisfied with our room. The breakfast bar was very nice with an assortment of fruit, cereal, pastry, eggs, tortillas, and plenty of coffee!
It is in a very nice setting in State College and convenient to restaurants.

Stayed here one night while dropping off my daughter at Penn State. The hotel is new and the room was a nice size with very comfortable beds. Bathroom was also a nice size and had enough towels for the four of us. The room had complimentary high-speed internet. Complimentary breakfast even included scrambled eggs and sausage. It's only 2 miles out of State College and I would definitely stay here again.
