“Good place to unwind after a long day”
Reviewed October 16, 2009

Pros - Stayed here for 3 days for a business trip. Staff was always courteous and helpful. Room had a king-size bed (which was a bit too soft for my taste, but after I fell asleep, it really didn't matter) and flat screen TV. Perfect for doing business in the area... close to great local restaurants and a mall. Quiet floor let me get work done and get to sleep quickly.
Con - I tried the hotel restaurant "Great American Grill" for breakfast one morning (not complimentary, but charged to your room). Save your money. The coffee was bitter and tasted like it had been sitting out since last night and rewarmed. Bacon and eggs were greasy and overcooked. I had a better breakfast at a taco shop up the street.

Stayed here for business in early January. Nice, somewhat clean room. The shower was broken, but was fixed promptly when I reported it. The bed was very very comfortable. The breakfast was ok. I used the gym, but it would be tight with more than three people. The location is right off the main freeway and there is lots of options to eat in the immediate area. It is also very close to the airport. I found a better rate at the homewood suites for a subsequent trip and will post a review for that as well.

I liked this hotel. It was clean and airy and there was a warm welcome at the desk. I chose it because of security. Being this close to the Mexican Border and being a solo traveller I wanted somewhere that had a good security factor and found it here.
My room with spa was large and well appointed. The bed was very comfortable.
I left early next morning before they served breakfast but what I saw of it being prepared it looked very good.
I would stay here again.

Searching for a good hotel and reasonable priced I looked at so many and having stayed in Mcallen before I knew the area. Generally the prices ran around $ 50.00 more or less and the hotels I checked some had been filled, especially since it was a Mexican Holiday weekend, Further checking I came across the Hilton, always thinking out of my reach as far as money. When I checked the pricing $106.00 for a room with breakfast at the Hilton I said go. Much Much better than I expected the room was large with two double beds, coffee machine and refrigerator. The breakfast was first class, buffet style but anything you want made to order. The hotel staff was best that I ever seen with being so courterious. Close to the airport . Bathrooom toilteries they gave were top notch Neutergena. No the one fault was the bad tub is slippery. They even have 24 hour store open where you can buy TV dinners. Sounds good. Hilton should be proud.

  • Liked — Everything the pool was so clean
  • Disliked — The bath tub was slipppery

What a great Hilton Garden Inn. I stay here about once per months for 2-4 nights. The public areas are always clean and it is obvious that they are doing constant upkeep. Staff is always very friendly and welcoming. They usually have a hospitality night on Wednesday nights, and if you are a gold or diamond member with HHonors, you get a nice free breakfast that is a full buffet in a manner that is not overun with people. (If not a HH gold / diamond, there is a charge for the breakfast.) They have a dinner menu and small convenience store station. Outdoor pool is nice in the hot evenings.

The rooms are always clean, fresh, crisp, and well appointed. I have never had a room there that did not live up to my standards.

What a great place.

  • Liked — Great Business Center
  • Disliked — Parking limited by the restaruant next door.

Pros: Clean, comfortable, quiet, safe & reasonably priced

Cons: Ridiculous low-flow shower heads, no room service, sometimes cold breakfast items


I booked a 4-night stay here, but left after 3 for the nearby Embassy Suites. Overall, this hotel is OK -- but I've stayed at Embassy before and knew it was better.

Note to HHonors members: this hotel has a policy of only upgrading one night of a stay. You must ask for your upgrade.
