The convenience of the Trolley Stop behind the hotel is AWESOME! The staff is very polite. Highly recommend! Unless you have sensitive ears and difficulty sleeping (Trolley runs from 4am to 11pm). It's REALLy not that bad; have seen others silly complaints!

This is a pretty good location for the price. Right at the edge of downtown, and next to the marina. Unfortunatly, the trolly station can be a little loud especially after 9pm, but they are nice enough to provide ear plugs if you need it. Staff was verify friendly and helpful with providing information about the area. Parking was also... More

Reserved a room with a king size bed - didn't get it. On my reservation, I requested a street side room because of train noise reported by other travelers - didn't get it. Got a room in the back by the train tracks. A/C unit was very noisy, had to turnit off. Asked to change rooms, was told no other... More

This is an old, art-deco style hotel with a nice refurbished lobby and a convenient location for the airport and downtown. For the right price, or for Hilton loyalists, this is a fine choice. The hotel is only 6 floors and thus not overwhelming. It is on a busy road but pedestrian friendly -- around the corner are plenty of... More

Very courteous and helpful staff. Excellent value for the money. In addition to free airport service, I was highly impressed that the hotel provided round trip transportation by the shuttle to the Hilton every day to attend my conference.

Enjoyed our stay at the Hampton Inn. Nothing fancy but clean and comfortable. Our bathroom could use a little work but overall everything was good. All staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful. We were on the second floor and the train didn't bother us a bit. Great location. We walked most places or took the trolley which we... More

If you value sleep. Do not stay here. You will hear a constant ringing of the railroad crossing bells and trains going by all day and night. If you like to work out in the Fitness Room, beware that people smoke just outside the Fitness Room in the patio area. You will inhale the second hand smoke. Otherwise, the rest... More

Dear "Richard W", thank you for your review and for your business! I am sorry that you were disturbed by our proximity to the train lines. You know this issue has gotten substantially better since the institution of the quiet Zone which makes it illegal for the trains to blow their horns unless it is an emergency. Unfortunately you are... More

Dear "alanh45953", thank you for your candid review our our hotel which includes some potentially negative aspects (cost of parking) and some good ones such as our breakfast and pool area. Thank you for mentioning the many nearby restaurants! I would like to clarify the parking cost, which is only $12.00, but that is just so that other potential guests... More

I stayed at this property for 4 days on a business trip. They provide complimentary airport transfer and decent breakfast. The assistant manager did the check in for me and provided information about the trolley and nearby restaurants. Room had an excellent view of the harbor. Overall, a very good experience.

You can hear train noise due to the hotel's proximity to the tracks. Ear plugs are provided! The location to the harbor is a plus and one good thing about the train is it is very accessible. Oh, they charge for parking also!
