Milford, Pennsylvania
Reviewed 20 April 2016

The rooms are clean. The beds are comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It's a great place to stay if you are in town for an event. The breakfast is kind of just ok, it could use more fresh fruit options but the lobby area where it is served is newly renovated and beautiful.

We overnighted here as part of a longer road trip. The hotel is easily accessible from the Interstate and it was affordable. It delivers on all fronts as one would expect from a Hilton Garden Inn. Well worth it. Good property. A definite "will come back"

Came up from Altoona for an overnight night trip. I booked through a third party, and scored an awesome deal. The accommodations were just what we were looking for - something simple, yet classy, with a good location. It's what you'd expect from a Hilton: plenty of extras... very clean... friendly and attentive staff... the usual. There are lots of...

The staff at the hotel were all very welcoming and friendly. The complimentary shuttle to anywhere within five miles was a huge positive. It allowed my boyfriend and myself to enjoy dinner and few drinks without the worry of driving after. It also runs 24 hours a day. The rooms are a bit outdated, but clean and presentable. My only...
