    Just fine

    One night passing through with dog. Uneventful. Quiet, easy in and out. Missed my pillow. The foam are uncomfortable, but small complaint. All good and affordable pet fee.

    Great place!

    This hotel did surpass my expectations. I had never booked with this specific Hilton hotel prior and was very pleased with the amount of space in each room and that there were two nice sized full bathrooms with vanity areas and the living room. They did have great amenities also, but with the weather and time frame we were not able to enjoy. I will definitely book again.

    In search of the maid.

    I thought staying in a Hilton hotel my room would be clean. I was wrong. I am a true, not dyed blonde who is traveling with a bald man. We had BLACK hair all over our bathroom floor. My hair is all the way down my back to my waist these were short and curly. Disgusting. Please pay your maids more money so you can hire people that will really do their job.

    Customer service was poor

    We thought it was awful for the front desk to have us come down and get the linens for the pull out. She also entered our name in wrong for the room so the WiFi was an ordeal. Room wasn’t ready when we arrived.

    Gouged for Pet Charges

    We were traveling for the first time with our pet so I booked this hotel online ahead of our travel to ensure we had an over-night stay at a hotel that would allow our dog. We arrived and upon check-in I disclosed that we did, in fact, have our dog with us. I was required to complete some paperwork, which is standard and then told the additional cost for having our pet - this amounted to the cost of another room - over $70.00! I questioned this amount and was told "that's what it is, you should have seen it when booking the room". I expected a reasonable up charge but NOT and extra room charge. When reviewing my booking paperwork, there was a note that there MAY BE AN EXTRA CHARGE FOR PETS which was in small print at the bottom of the confirmation. Additionally, there was virtually NO place to walk your dog for bathroom purposes except a tiny grass space next to the pool. I guess it's "buyer beware" when booking this hotel with a pet!

    The breakfast was awful for the price i paid. Just a few stuffs packed and industrialized. Didn’t compensate at all to stay there under this condition. Other Hiltons administrated hotels in the same region were offering the regular breakfast , but they have staff to serve it. Ours were these poor packed things. Not the quality associated to Hilton’s brand. If I knew this in advance, I’d certainly pick another option and save money. Better not to offer breakfast at all

    There were some minor issues and inconveniences with our room but the staff went out of their way to help make our stay as comfortable as they could so I gave an overall rating of “excellent” for those efforts. Some things were a bit dated and could use some repair/upgrades but we otherwise enjoyed ourselves.

    The staff was nice. The hotel itself was a bit dated but it served the purpose for the time we spent there. I think the hotel should offer a hot plate for people that don’t use microwaves to heat their food.

    The property was very clean and the employees were very friendly and helpful. My mom and I shared a suite and were completely relaxed.
