My wife and I have stayed here before since it is near family. I have mentioned in a previous review that the hotel was intended as a nursing home (checked with manager and this was confirmed) but they stopped in the middle of building it and a few years later it was bought by Hilton. This is the primary reason the layout is so odd. You must leave the lobby/check in area to get to your room and with only two elevators at each corner your room could be quite a walk.
Except for one young lady behind the desk (Cassie) for the most part the staff is very friendly in particular Joe the engineer in charge of getting things fixed. He seems to be everywhere and is eager to please, a great assest.
The carpeting needd help as does the cushions on the sofa from over use. Breakfast and a managers light dinner four days a week is very good. I would recommend the hotel as a medium upscale hotel. It is clean and the pool is excellent. I have also noticed an improvement with the cleaning staff who are now doing a better job.
