it's kinda noisy in the room. There are train tracks just east of the property and the freight trains tend to blow their whistles throughout the night. In addition, in my opinion, the heating system isn't that efficient and it's noisy. I set the thermostat to 71 and it got got quite warm quickly, but then it would shut down and the room would get cold within a short period of time. I then had to increase the temperature by a degree in order for the heat to engage again.
Apparently the hotel was renovated within the past year or two, but there's definitely some noticeable wear and tear. The cleanliness of the room wasn't the greatest and there was a bit of an unpleasant odor in my colleague's room, similar to a moisture infiltration smell. I also found a couple of bugs (looked like lady bugs) flying around my room. I could have mentioned a couple of my gripes to the staff, but I was honestly too tired to deal with it.
On the bright side, the staff was very friendly and helpful, there's a complimentary shuttle to area restaurants, the bed was comfy, there's complimentary wifi, it's reasonably priced and the Hilton Honor's breakfast was tasty.
Unfortunately the noises kept waking me up. If you don't mind some of the issues I mentioned, I guess it's worth a stay, but I won't be returning.
