Many problems with this stay and the hotel needs fixing. Many of the 'ocean views' are from the side of the hotel and are blocked by palm trees. Our room included a lovely view of their dumpsters and discarded sink tops. This hotel is further back from the gulf than adjacent hotels, so some of the views are blocked. The room light was out when we entered, and the 10-15 minutes to fix it that we were promised turned in to well over an hour after we were in bed. The toilet refilled extremely slowly and required several minutes before a re-flush -- it was not fixed during our stay. There is no standard room service, it must be requested. We needed some clean sheets because of a spill but were told there would be no service because we had not requested it before noon. Had to sleep on the mattress cover. Internet service was very poor. Service at the in-house Starbucks was extremely slow because the server was also delivering food to the adjacent restaurant. If you pay well less than $100 it is okay, but anything over that is extremely poor value for money.

Hotel's Favorite
I stayed here with my fiancé for 5 days - we just got back yesterday. We had an amazing time on our first trip to SPI, and this hotel was a huge reason why. The location is perfect - a quick walk down the boardwalk and you're on the white sand beach! The pool was wonderful too - I have no idea why other reviewers are saying the pool isn't well maintained? We loved the pool and the jacuzzi. All public areas of the hotel, including the pool area and patio, were impeccably clean. The staff was helpful and kind during every interaction. Perfect example: on our first night, I hung my swim suit on our room's balcony, only to see it had landed on the roof of the porte-cochère below...when I alerted the front desk team, they had someone retrieve it within MINUTES. I was so grateful!! When I reserved our room on the Hilton site, we added daily breakfast and opted for for a room with daily snacks (perfect for the beach)! Because Housekeeping didn't enter our room each day, the front desk team was eager to allow us to stock up on our snacks from the lobby. As far as the restaurant food goes... it was inexpensive - even when delivered to our room... but we got what we paid for ;) It was tasty but not on-par with the Hilton meals I know and love! Even though the food was so-so, I won't hesitate to stay here again! HUGE thank you to the staff - you guys really made us feel at home :)

Excellent staff, amenities, lounge areas are top notch, restaurant smells absolutely amazing, and the walkway to the beach is absolutely wonderful. This will probably be the only place I'll stay at on SPI from here on out!!! I LOVE IT!!!!

Zero hospitality, no towels for the pool two days in a row, call center told us it was an ocean view room and it was a partial ocean view, not even one apology for the inconvenience, you have to go the front desk every day to ask for the cleaning lady to clean the room, one of the 5 days they didn’t clean it even that we asked for it before 12 pm as they asked, if you call by phone from your room they don’t send anyone to clean (you need to literally go to the front desk), the bar in the pool was closed all 5 days, nobody is there to sell you alcohol or food. No toilet paper one day, they forgot to place it, hotel is old and it smells old, service in On The Border bar is deplorable; one elevator didn’t work once, it eas just stucked, and we had to ask for another TV because it didn’t work. But most important, literally all staff hate their work there and they don’t care about anything. We received zero apologies in the 6 days we were there. Don’t go here please don’t go, just go to Courtyard by Marriot which was our second option and is beautiful (we went there for New Years Eve and it’s beautiful and new). Same price by the way or cheaper than Hilton.

We had an alright stay over all. We stayed for a week over the holidays.. The Hilton staff was always great and extremely accommodating, the On The Border staff was nice but ALWAYS dreadfully slow, wouldn’t always deliver to the room, Etc… The beds, for some reason the fitted sheet doesn’t like to stay on, we would have to fix this multiple times a night and it grew annoying.. The rooms, they appear to have been re-furnished but not remolded.. The smells, way too many times we would leave our room and the hallway corridors reeked of cannabis and cigarettes……. I would probably stay again if they lowered the price for quality received….
