4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Overall experience good; staff very helpful, friendly. Restaurant could use some adjustment in food quality. Location is excellent; beach area very pretty; grounds landscaping very nice. Elevators are somewhat slow. Parking lot was dark in some areas towards the back--lights needed replacing.

We checked in, unpacked, and found out the WiFi didn't work. We got the runaround from the guy at the front desk. Turns out, Wi-Fi does not work in the in rooms at the end of the building. We spent the night shivering. The only way the AC would work is full blast, or not at all. The next morning, went to the coffee shop to download my mail. I was then handed a bill for almost $16 for a bagel and a cup of coffee. Turns out, the buffet isn't free. The hallways have a moldy smell. I would never stay here, or any other Hilton place again.

I was in town for a Fraternity Brother's wedding and it was great! The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Everyone from the attendant who serviced my room all four nights of my stay, to Carlos the shuttle driver, and Ty at the Front Desk. The room was nice and comfortable and clean. I ate in the restaurant twice and enjoyed each time. The staff there was great also. The next time I have to make a cross country trip to Florida, I am definitely going to stay here.

We have enjoyed this hotel and the beautiful sand beaches in the past years. Unfortunately this year was raining very hard and decided to leave due to the stormy weather. It was water pouring thru the floors in the inaide stairs. My guess is that the building needs mayor repairs in the roof.

The Staff and the Poolview Suite were Great!!! Wonderful Service. Location was Perfect.!! We were supposed to have a Gulf Front Suite but there were issues with the room before we got there and they called to inform us that they put us in a PoolView 2 room suite for less money and it was Wonderful!!! Breakfast Buffet very good and worth the money. Bar service Excellent.

This Hilton is in a FANTASTIC area (beaches, good places to eat, sight seeing +++)...but it in need of an upgrade. The staff was excellent and very friendly and was very helpful with anything we needed. The quality of the hotel is good. We have stayed there a couple of times before and was hoping to see improvements to the grounds and overall atmosphere, but it wasn't in the stars for that to happen. ONCE again...an A+ staff and very clean.
