“Flawless Relaxation.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2010

We stayed at the Hilton Melbourne Beach Oceanfront for four nights in late December. Due to an uncharacteristic cold snap, we didn't get to enjoy the beach, the ocean, or the pool, but we still enjoyed our stay immensely.

This hotel had been remodeled in recent years, and they did so with great attention to detail. The result is a very modern hotel room with appointments worthy of the Hilton name. I will say that I was surprised that it had an old-style "tube" television, but it was still a decent picture. And pay movies were between 12.99 - 14.99, which is quite a lot... but hey, in both cases, these are easy things to overlook. Who the heck stays in a beachfront hotel to watch movies on television, no matter HOW chilly it is outside?

Nicely decorated rooms with comfortable beds, and a bathroom with granite appointments (and a tub with shower massage) were completely up to and beyond our expectations. The restaurant food and service was excellent, and they kept the pool bar open past dark despite the cold temparature and the fact that nobody else was out at the pool. This just shows that they're willing to go the extra mile!

One of the nicest things about this hotel is the shuttle service which runs between the Hilton and the Doubletree suites which sit a little further south along the beach. On call and readily available, the shuttle took us to a nearby Raw Bar (Bunky's) and was there five minutes after we called for it. Did I mention that the shuttle is free? For a small town that lacks for public transportation, this absolutely rocks.

In summary, amazing stay for a reasonable price. We will definitely return!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2009

We'd chosen this hotel specifically for R&R & stayed here for 4 nights over the Thanksgiving week. We were very pleased with the spacious junior suite we had booked & the fabulous views it afforded.

The suite was not contemporary but that didn't worry us. It was light & airy with fabulous floor to ceiling windows, very clean, with a very comfy bed, dining table & 4 chairs, sofa, coffee table, plenty of storage & various lamps for soft or higher lighting.

Our balcony was stand alone, no room for any furniture so do be careful when booking what you actually require, it's all down to personal taste. The south tower balconies accomodated furniture. We wanted a junior suite which came with narrower balcony.

The breakfast which we partook of the first morning only of our stay was good. We thoroughly enjoyed the Thanksgiving buffet, a real feast with such a variety of dishes & all so novel for us Brits - a highlight of our US holiday.

The restaurant 'Sun On The Beach', a mile & a half northbound (walkable depending on how hungry you are), is great for breakfast, & then a good walk back again all along the shore watching the fishermen, pelicans, herons & ibis is great way to spend a morning.

Some of the staff were delightful, warm & friendly with helpful tips when we were going out & about.

We didn't take our laptop knowing that we could check emails & check in for flights etc using the hotel's business centre. This was easily available, but I doubt this would be so convenient when the hotel has a higher capacity of guests. In my opinion a second business centre should be installed as a matter of priority.

After the first night we had several concerns regarding our stay, following our check in the previous evening. These were very satisfactorily addressed & resolved by the manager when we had a meeting with him in the morning. The manager was unaware of any of them until I informed him. Thank you Mark.

I mention this because the issues were promptly addressed & resolved. I believe this is good & proper customer relations, & that the manager of a property should be given the right to address any customer relationed issues, before being posted on a site such as this, which is why I'm saying thanks for sorting & not detailing the issues.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & would be happy to return.

AWAY FROM THE CROWDS OF COCOA BEACH! Without hesitation I recommend the Hilton hotel on Melbourne Beach. The staff is actually happy and happy to serve your every need. Simply put this hotel is four star in my opinion not 3.5. It is only for those looking to get away at a reasonable price and enjoy great service and a top notch hotel room. I was told the entire hotel was rebuilt in 2004 after the last major hurricane. Stay here and you won't regret it! All rooms are ocean view.

On a side note it is a good length drive to Cocoa beach but if its beach, however the pool, beach and bar here is awesome!

When I was driving to the hotel I was concerned as Melbourne is a really sleepy beach town this time of year. Once I got there and got inside I was pleaseantly surprise. The inviting lobby and the marvelous room with the ocean front view was awesome. The friendly staff at the front desk was welcoming after a full day of travel. My room in the south tower was very modern with a flat panel TV and a king bed. In addition I had a fridge and a balcony with 2 chairs. The view was spectacular - the ocean was wonderful to look at every morning before my meeting and after in the evening! We had a group event on one of the days I was there and I can only praise the staff for a great job they did. The food was absolutely fabulous! Overall everyone had a great time!

-We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Hilton. Stephanie at the front desk was very accommodating to any needs.
-The rooms are spacious. We had an Oceanfront King. The breeze waved into the room and made it feel like vacation. Falling asleep to the waves every night was perfect.
-Any request that we made was promptly done.
-My few complaints are: the South tower has bigger balconies and there are no microwaves in the rooms.
-Will recommend to others and definitely come back.

You can't find fault with the Hilton's location--beautiful white sand beach right on your doorstep. The hotel, however, is lackluster. The rooms were tired and a bit dingy, and the hallways appeared to be vacuumed about once every couple of weeks. If we had paid full price off of the Hilton website, I would have been disappointed/angry. Instead, we booked through a hotel consolidator and got a much cheaper price, and so I can't really complain. If you can get a decent price on a room here, then it's worth a look. Additionally, the hotel staff were great--very friendly and helpful.

I wasn't expecting much from the reviews I had read. I went ahead and booked a room anyway due to the beach being so close. When we got there it was fantastic. nice big clean room, excellent view, Liz at the front desk was so nice and accommodating. We were going to stay 5 nights but liked it so much we stayed another. The only issue we had was the restaurant. We went there for dinner and there were only 2 other couples in there, so I thought we would be taken care of. The manager sat us after about 5 minutes of waiting at the desk, then I think the busboy actually took our drink order. The manager brought us our drinks and it took what seemed to be a half hour to get our food, again brought to us by the manager. We didn't see our waiter until we were almost done and he ask how our meal was. (which was excellent). We are going to do it again nest year. Also, I would recommend staying at the south tower at a upper level room closest to the ocean.
