“What you would expect.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We spent 3 nights, as my wife had a conference nearby. Hotel was clean and rooms as well. The staff was very nice. Ocean across the street but getting to walk the beach, you had to go a little bit further. Served coffee and tea in the morning.would stay again.

Great location for activities in the area especially Legoland. Legoland is only a couple miles away and they will shuttle you there and back promptly. Staff was excellent! Loved the sunsets!! Pool and hot tub were great for the kids and they made a lot of friends while there. Access to the beach is a bit difficult but was still a great location. I highly recommend an upgrade to ocean view since then you will get the best views of the sunsets. I highly recommend this hotel for it's location and great staff.

Room Tip: Upgrade to ocean view for the sunsets!

Awesome location. A quick walk across the street to a fantastic view of the ocean and lovely walk either above or on the beach. Hotel staff go out of their way to ensure your stay is memorable. Will come back again.

Room Tip: An ocean view will be appreciated

We had a two night visit to this property in February 2013. We were greeted with a wonderful attitude and and smiles making you feel very welcomed to Hilton Garden Inn. The front desk personnel were very quick and efficient checking us in within five minutes of our arrival. We had a deluxe oceanfront view room with two queen beds. The room was very clean and was of a good size for three people. We had breakfast each day at the breakfast buffet. The made to order omelettes were fantastic, as well as the selection of other breakfast items that were available. The staff in the dining room went beyond my expectations and were extremely friendly and very hospitable. The only negative was that one of the queen beds was extremely hard and was sagging in the middle. Also, we had a connecting door in our room. This led to a major noise issue due to the fact we could hear everything the guests in the room next-door were saying. I thought at first it was coming from the hallway! Overall, a great place to stay.

We had such a great stay. From the moment we pulled up to the hotel. The area it is in is so beautiful, and we are locals, checking in and out was easy. The manager and staff were so helpful and courteous. They went out of there way several times to make our stay really special. The manager ordered a bottle of champagne for us and had it brought to our room. We will do a staycation there again, soon.
