“Very pleasant experience”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

I stayed here for two nights on business -- check in was quick and easy, all the staff (esp Annie) were courteous and helpful, the room was spacious and well appointed. Bed was comfortable, WiFi was easy to access, and my room on the top (4th) floor was relatively well insulated from outside noise. The outdoor heated pool was well maintained, although there were no towels in the area on the morning I used it. While I did not partake of the breakfast, many other guests did and everything looked and smelled appealing. This is a nice little hotel, in a convenient location, with a well trained staff.

Stay at this hotel during my business trips and i have to say they consistently meet my expectations. The hotel is close to the airport, beaches and attractions. Very accessible!

The GM, Jason, is just terrific!! He is really friendly, professional and will do what he can to ensure that your stay is pleasant. He will do what he can to help - has carried boxes for me; helped me with my luggage - honestly, something he did not have to do - meant alot to me.

Once you check in, the assistant manager, Lee and the front desk staff, particularly Annie and Andrea are quite customer focused, professional and will go out of their way for you. You are greeted with a smile! Awesome team!!!! I cannot say enough about them.

The dining area is very nice and well kept - the menu is new and really good. Jerry, Rich and the dining team will ensure that they make your dining experience a very good one. They will ensure that they take care of your needs as best as possible.

It is a very good hotel, affordable, and wonderful group of people who are incredible service oriented. They will make your stay terrific.

Staying here now - the dining area, gym, and even the room is nice and comfortable but the smell of smoke is horrible. I was told that this is a non smoking room but must be right next to smoking rooms, and was unable to change to a different area of the hotel. Might check out early.

Thank you for bringing this problem to our attention.

I sincerely apologize about the smell of smoke. From time to time people do smoke in our non-smoking rooms, lacking consideration for their fellow guests. Please contact any member of our management team or myself directly to address this issue, even if you have already checked out.

We hope to see you again soon, and will be happy to guarantee you do not suffer the same problem again here.

This hotel has redeeming qualities: a kind front desk staff, employees in the lobby area who are nice/helpful, and a good proximity to the airport. With that said, it's important to note that visitors will not be getting the quality of stay they are expecting when paying such a high price for a room. The rooms are small and very dated. The walls are extremely thin; our neighbors awoke around 7:30 AM and therefore we did too. They weren't yelling, simply discussing their plans for the day in a normal tone. Hilton really misses the mark with this property and I do not recommend staying here.

Room Tip: I'd try going to upper floors if possible but all of the rooms are the same.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay at our hotel. We sincerely appreciate your feedback and we’re very sorry about the level of noise you experienced while you were here.

We pride ourselves as being a quiet, business-oriented hotel. Over the time-frame of your stay, we honestly failed to control a large group in-house, which was very loud in public areas as well as in the hallways. Moving forward management will ensure that large groups are controlled, and not allowed to disturb our other guests.

We will work with our team to ensure that we correct all issues mentioned and we hope you will consider staying with us in the future.

Very comfortable. We stayed at the hotel during a college visit. Clean hotel. Staff friendly. Very close to airport. A little dated, but not bad. We got to our room only to find out our key did not work. However, staff was quick to bring another and get us checked in another room. It would be nice to have short info sheet on times for breakfast and happy hour (if any). Overall, nice and comfortable.
