“Hilton Elmira/Horseheads”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

This property was clean and near shopping and some resteraunts such as Outback Steakhouse and Red Lobster. I didn't have time for the gym and the pool, only there one night. The beds were very comfortable, and they provided 2 bottles of water to all guests.

Breakfast was sit down/waitress style instead of grab and go. I was in a hurry, so I didn't have time to wait. This is an extra charge, so you can only grab coffee for free in the morning.

I lost my cell phone in the parking lot...it popped off my belt when almost falling on the ice. They need some salt out there... Good thing the friendly staff found it when another customer turned it in. It was great to get the phone back!

Thank you for your kind words about our hotel. I am pleased to hear you were unhurt from your near fall and that your cell phone was returned. We will be more vigilant with our inspections of the parking lot during inclement weather to insure no one gets hurt.

Thank you for choosing our Hilton Garden Inn. Please hurry back.

Saw an ad for the restaurant in the local paper, and decided to take a chance on the Sat night Prime Rib. Being a local that dines out around the area and gets disappointed a LOT, I was not about to set myself up to be impressed.

The good news:
This is NOT typical !!

This was nothing short of a great experience on a dreary rainy fall night.
Wonderful atmosphere, and simply great food.
Waitstaff is obviously skilled with proper training.......

It was so refreshing to have the waitress walk up and greet us with menus and
water right away. As opposed to all the waiting we have done at other places.
I can't stand waiting for menus, waiting for something (anything) to drink, water right from the start is so simple but such a welcome touch.

Admittedly, the place was almost abandoned, so service was prompt.
Not sure how the time line would play out if it was busy.
Food was excellent and prices are very reasonable.
The Fish Chowder soup, and Prime Rib were very good.
Waitress was -on-the-mark- with several visits throughout the meal that were not pushy and at the same time we did not feel "abandoned" as we have other places.

With so many bad experiences at local eateries ranging from awful food to clueless waitstaff, we were very impressed with this experience! Did I mention we were impressed??

Not only will we be back, we will tell every one we know about this place!

We have stayed here a number of times over the last 5 or so years and have consistanly been very pleased. The facility is very clean and well cared for. Would recommend this hotel to anyone. It's actually a fairly convenient location to fan out to the 3 main lakes for wine sipping.

Hilton Garden Inns in general provide a better and more consistent guest experience than their sister Hampton Inns; the latter are far more numerous, but can be good, bad, or indifferent, depending on the skiils of the local management.

We have stayed at the Horseheads HGI on a number of occasions over the past five years and have been generally impressed with the high standard of housekeeping, maintenance, and front desk service. Our most recent visit, after an absence of several years, was almost equally good, but slightly tarnished by an atypical, somewhat disorganized and inattentive breakfast room staff. Perhaps they were just having a bad Monday morning.

In any event, it was interesting to note that a new Hampton Inn property had sprung up on the adjacent lot since our last visit. It is rather unusual to find two Hilton properties right next to each other, and even more so to find that the room rates were virtually identical at both of them. In any event, regular Hilton Honors guests such as ourselves now have a choice of accommodations in Horseheads. Perhaps the competition will keep both property managers on their toes.

Thank you for your loyalty to Hilton Garden Inns and your kind words about my hotel. I am sorry to hear my breakfast staff was not on their best game but your comments will help wake them up.

The Hampton next door is our companies also and was brought about by the unusually high demand in the area due to the gas drillers. It too is an exceptional product but of course I am partial to mine.

Thank you again for your kind words and please hurry back.

We had some difficulty find a room in the area for our alloted rate and the Garden Inn went above and beyond to work with us. I was impressed the minute I walked in. Everyone was very friendly and helpful...they all had that small town genuinly friendly attitude. The room was extraordinarily clean upon my arrival and stayed that way every day. Kudos to the cleaning staff! Breakfast was great and the girls who worked the dining room were very helpful as well. We drove to Bath, NY daily and even with construction was approximately 40 minutes. I would definately stay here again for pleasure and take in the sites from this beautiful area.

It is always a pleasure to serve our Hilton Honor members and a thrill to know we have met your expectations. But what I really want to do is WOW you so please come back and experience the new lobby and restaurant due for completion before the end of the year. I know you will be WOW'd just like I was the first time I saw it.
