Family stayed for soccer tournament. Good location as close to fields. Hotel and room were clean. Service was good and staff was nice. Kids enjoyed the indoor pool. Breakfast was not included and was not the best.

We stayed here for one night. Although we checked in online, we were moved to another room next to the stairwell (so we heard noise throughout the night - minor issue compared to the rest). The most alarming room issue was when we walked into the bathroom for the first time and could smell heavy cigarette smoke. I called the front desk and they said that management was aware of the issue - I couldn’t believe that they put us in the room anyway. We are nonsmokers and the smell was uncomfortable. When we returned to the room after dinner, we found ashes behind the bathroom faucet, which made me question how thoroughly the room had been sanitized - luckily, I carry disinfecting wipes everywhere and wiped down all surfaces. There was also an incident with the elevators. The elevator clearly states that occupancy is for only 2 people unless you are in the same party. My husband and I were in the elevator and then three cleaning people - hotel staff - came into the elevator despite the hotel-mandated occupancy limits. I followed up with the front desk about all of these issues. The staff stated that they were concerned and said that they informed the manager who would follow up with us and likely give us points or money off of our stay. I waited a week and haven’t heard a word. Forget the points/money - the lack of manager follow-up demonstrates a clear lack of care for keeping guests safe during COVID. There are plenty of other hotels in the area - I would not recommend staying here unless and until management demonstrates a commitment to keeping guests safe, including ensuring room cleanliness and enforcing safety protocols with its staff.

Several changes have been made during the Covid pandemic. There are more protocols in place for extra cleaning and safety of guests and staff. there have been some staffing changes to the team too. Please try us again next time you are in the area!

On the plus side, the location is fantastic: easy access from the I-90, Aldi's across the street, restaurants within walking distance. I paid for a room with a hot tub, and that was nice, though obviously in need of detail cleaning. Staff was friendly. Most disappointing was the fact that the room was furnished to the absolute bare minimum: there was a desk and fridge and microwave, of course, but so much bare space. A nice chair would have helped; since it's a two-person room, where does the other person sit? The fridge was the cheapest available. I've paid less at a Hilton for so much more. Were I not exhausted from traveling, I would have left the hotel and gone to the Comfort Inn down the road for the same price.

Our family has stayed at this Hilton Garden Inn many times over the years. A stay last week indicates something is not right. Prior to our trip, I called the hotel to inquire about cleaning procedures due to COVID-19. The woman I spoke to was very pleasant, but left me with little reassurance the hotel was taking precautions. She gave airy descriptions of, "Well, we all wear masks and you have to stay 6' apart..." I asked if the duvet covers were being laundered and she said, "I think they have to now?" When we checked in, we found the hotel under renovations. Not a big deal, but some heads up when I called or on the website would have been nice. The lobby had bare ceiling, yellow caution tape, piles of new furniture etc. We had driven a long ways and were tired and anxious and eager to just get to our room. We found visible soiling on light switches, hair on the bathroom floor and child's handprints all over the closet mirror. That was only the stuff we could see. We used disinfectant wipes on everything, but it just felt careless and yucky. When we checked out, the front desk asked how things were. I told them about the issues with the room and they offered to buy me some more HHonors points. Guess we'll see if that happens. I'd really prefer a sparkling, disinfected room.
