I stayed at the Midland Hilton on a Thursday night expecting to stay the next week. I canceled my reservation after that evening. Upon arrival the lobby is outdated and the staff was not overly welcoming. The doors to the rooms are a nice florescent lime-green (lol) and the hallways are not air conditioned (easily over 90 degrees).
The Bad: Supposedly the room has been updated in this decade, could have fooled me. The carpet was thread-bare and stained. The A/C unit was HUGE, loud, and easily came into the room about 3 ½ feet. The bathroom is small and the drain had no cover on it, showing the mildew in its full glory. When I used the shower water shot all over the wall and ceiling. The water hitting the ceiling was damaging the tasteful pop-corn texture and staining it. The hotel charges for parking. Give me a break! Tell them you don’t have a car, they don’t take any vehicle information and there’s no barrier to the garage. Save yourself $4.99 (weird price). The lot is almost always full anyway so you’ll be wasting your money.
The Good: The bed is very soft and comfortable. The fitness center is nice with Precore Equipment. The manager’s reception on the club level was decent and the breakfast in the morning was decent.
Overall, I would not stay here again. This hotel needs to be gutted and updated or lose the Hilton branding. I really hope another hotel comes to downtown Midland so maybe the Hilton will offer a little more. Make the drive to the loop hotels (except the Hampton)… much newer, much nicer.
