“Excellent hotel closest to Magic Mountain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

I have stayed at this Hilton Gardens location before, entirely because of it's proximity to Magic Mountain and they have a free shuttle to the park. It is a bit on the pricey side for this type of hotel. In the summer, it was about $150/night with taxes and I have a government discount. I didn't really mind paying a little extra for the convenient location, but if you are more money conscious, there might be lower prices in the area.

The room was clean and well laid out. There was a flat screen TV and a mini fridge. We used the hot tub, but not the pool, after walking all day. Free wi-fi was helpful, since all we brought were smart phones and it cut down on our data usage.

There is free parking and they have a good size parking lot, easy to access from a couple of different ways. There are a lot of casual dining places and stores within a pretty easy drive, too.

The front desk seems to get very busy (I went to the lobby for a couple of things), but after waiting a few minutes, everyone was very polite and helpful. They also had free cookies and water with melon in it at the front desk, which was a classy, refreshing little deal.

We did not eat on the premises, but they have a restaurant and I heard other guests on the shuttle saying it was good.

Having a shuttle is great. At least it saves you from paying to park and if you want to drink a few adult beverages in the afternoon and return the park on a weekend evening, you can. Plus, if you don't want to wait for the shuttle on your return, it's about a 1/4 mile walk down the hill. No sidewalks, but there is a grass median most of the way and just a little bit of walking on the dirt. There is also a paved road about half way down that leads to the back part of the hotel property, but there is no cross walk there for the busy Old Road. My wife and I have stayed at this hotel twice (6 nights total) and we have walked down the hill three times because the shuttle would have been 30 or 45 minutes. It comes fairly quickly, but we didn't mind the walk down.

On a side note, it was cloudy and rained in LA (not really up in Santa Clarita) and the park wasn't that busy on our stay. We managed to ride every coaster we wanted (skipped some smaller or older ones), including a 20 minute wait to get on Full Throttle and about a 30 minute wait for X2.

I do recommend this hotel, primarily for it's convenient location and shuttle, but everything else you want in a hotel is very nice, as well.

Great experience. I enjoyed the free shuttle to magic mountain. It was nice to also relax in the pool. While I don't usually comment on hotels, I felt the need to make this post. The Hilton was a great place to stay and I hope to stay here again real soon. Felice

I stayed at the Hilton because my family wanted a hotel nearest to six flags . To our surprise we found that they had a shuttle service which took you to the park and picked you up. The staff is extremely friendly and great . I couldn't have had a better and relaxed vacation then I did staying at a hotel with such hospitality.

Shuttle to Magic Mountain. Good restaurant in the hotel with excellent waiters (Rene Gduardo Miguel).

Staff goes the extra mile to take care of you. They are all very friendly.

The pool has palm trees. The gym has treadmills with TV's.

Parking lot has plenty of parking.

Rooms are big with vaulted ceilings (2nd floor)

Room Tip: Call ahead early, day of arrival, to get multiple rooms located next to each other.

Your staff is so helpful and kind. The waiting area was comfortable and bathrooms were clean. The computer and printer were a life saver in printing up our AAA discount six flag tickets! Thank you so much!

If you're booking a room here, make sure you have internet connection. I can tell you that, in rm133 the connection was poor to bad. After calling 3 times to reception, we gave up. It would have been a better experience, if this problem was addressed.

Overall a good Hilton Garden Inn with handy location to Six Flags and outside of the LA metro. The wife and I stayed 1 night on our driving trip from Tucson to Seattle. The only real complaint was the door locks/plastic keys on our room were a joke and did not work properly resulting in a real effort to come and go. The staff said it was common and was supposed to be upgraded in the near future....yeah right ;). Otherwise a normal HGI stay.
