I stay at 60 or more Hilton hotels every year. I can honestly say the gentleman who checked me in at this hotel was amongst the friendliest I've ever encountered. Kudos to him. The room was nice but getting close to the point of needing to be remodeled. But, the bed was comfortable and the room was clean so that's...

The personal touch is what this hotel is all about, a real home from home feeling. From Tina's warm welcome when we arrived (after 21 hours travelling) the written welcome from the general manager (David Croughan) to the exceptional service above and beyond that we received from Lyndsay Davis this stay has prompted my first ever Tripadvisor review after over...

Disappointing service for this price and this location. I expected better. The room keys didn't work and I had to trek back to the front desk to have the problem fixed in spit of the fact that they had said just call if there was an issue. In addition the heat was off and we couldn't control it and it...

Our Thanksgiving stay was made perfect by Zenobia at the front desk. She treated us like family and by the end of our stay I wanted to take her home with us. I hope she is there next year! For sure, we will stay at this Hilton again.

Moderate price. High level service, food and amenities. Highly recommend!! From the moment I arrived the desk was very friendly and informative. Room was clean and comfortable. Food was great as was the service. Great location and easily accessible with plenty of "free" parking. Full service Spa was a bonus!!!

Special thank you to Zenobia at the front desk for her extra efforts on the telephone prior to our visit and at check-in/check-out. She (and all staff ) were very professional and pleasant. Hotel lobby is warm and welcoming and rooms are very comfortable.

Rated this a 5 star because it's been a long time since I've been somewhere when every employee was so kind, gracious,accommodating and happy! We had a little snag when checked in and the front desk clerk insisted on comping our entire dinner! Dinner was amazing! Definitely would stay here again and again! Great rates for such a nice hotel!
