“Old & Dated Go With The Hilton”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

This hotel has a fantastic location and tremendous water views if you are on the east side upper floors.If this place has been renovated as the Manager claims, they were robbed! It needs a serious makeover of common areas but most importantly the guest rooms. We were there on a weekend and a large wedding party was partying in our hallway at 3am. Repeated calls to the front desk had no effect, so we didn't sleep all night. On check-out the front desk had a "who cares attitude".

Unless the fix this relic up I'll be staying at the Hilton, I frequently travel to PAX River on business.

Very disappointed.

Room Tip: East side rooms with water views on upper floors.

We recently stayed for one night(6 rooms) to meet a client in the area. Everyone was curious to why they had 4 small pillows instead of a real pillow. Between the uncomfortable beds and the poorly thought out pillow situation, everyone agreeded that it was a bad night of sleep. I'm not sure what creates the horrible smell in the hallways and rooms but we all thought it was pretty bad too. I'm not sure if they need new carpets and paint but it seems like everyone there must be used to it not to recognize how bad it is. The last thing was that half of us had a hard time getting the showers to work. It took me 5 minutes to get it going and a couple of people just gave up. We did not get a chance to use the restaurants or bar so I can't comment on that. Check in was fine and courteous. No taxi service available in the area but that is no fault of the hotel. Would stay somewhere else the next time.

We appreciate you taking the time to enter a review of your recent stay with us. Comments such as yours help us make improvements in both product and services. We are currently in the final planning stages of completing our guest public area carpets. Your concern about our pillows comes at the same time we are making a standard change to all of our pillows and will start replacement of all pillows once that change is completed. Again thank you, Jeffrey D. Shepherd, General Manager

6 of us stayed at this hotel this past weekend and had a wonderful stay. This wasn't our first time. We have been there several times in the past several years and each time had been wonderful. The hotel staff are great and attentive to your needs. They are friendly and knowledgeable at the front desk. The young lady that checked all of us in on Saturday evening was fast and friendly and was even able to change all of our rooms to rooms with a view of the water vs. a view of the pool upon my request. That was very much appreciated.

The rooms were clean and the beds are the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in at any hotel. We all agreed on that. We had breakfast in the restaurant at the hotel and it was excellent.

We will continue to stay at this hotel when we are in that area.

Room Tip: We prefer the rooms facing the river vs. the rooms facing the pool. Not that it is noisy anywhere...

This Holidy Inn shows signs of wear and tear..but , in their defense, there are a lot of visitors to the area ! Rooms were adequate...bed was hard . Restaurant was good..service was fair. Have found other hotels in the area that exceed my expectations !

Sailed into the area, tied up at the marina, and stayed for two days. This is a great place for boaters. The marina is within walking distance to restaurants, barber shop, West Marine, and a maritime museum. All the facilities were clean, restaurant and bar were good. If you're sailing the Chesapeake, this is a good alternative to staying at just a marina. We did not stay in a room since we were on a sailboat, but we did use the showers, marina, restaurant, and bar.

Room Tip: Ask for the happy hour coupons....two free drinks, and small buffet.

We made last minute reservations for a group of 26 people for a Retreat. Terry Pence, from the Sales Department was very helpful in meeting our accomodation needs. All of the rooms were very nice and clean. The Suite that we used as a hospitality room had a great view of the Marina. The housekeeping staff members were very good and very willing to go out of their way to meet our special requests. Things were so good that we are planning to return next year.
