“Fabulous views!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

We really enjoyed this hotel, the best one in a looooong time! You get what you pay for, in this case, it's pricey. But, get a junior suite Ocean View, super nice! Clean, nice pool, free good wifi, nice bar and restaurant. Walk to the beach and see the sunrise over the gulf from your balcony. They could use some staff to help guests with bags though. We had to search around for a luggage carrier, asked the desk and he pointed one out, but no offer to help.

We wanted a nice place to stay for our 36th anniversary. So glad we found the Hilton Garden Inn. We had a jr. suite with a view of the pool and ocean. We got more than we expected. The room was large, clean and very nicely furnished. Even the balcony was well maintained like brand new. The view was Paradise. This may be an annual tradition.

We stayed here on our recent trip to Padre Island. The staff are wonderful and the hotel is very clean. I think the beds could have been a little more comfortable, but other than that it was a great place to stay.

Reception was friendly. Room was large and beautiful. Location is perfect for the month of September. Fireworks on Fri n Sat nights are over the beach, directly behind the Hilton, off of adjoining decks from the Hilton Garden, the la Quinta and Clayton's. Wonderful, convenient deck that leads to the beach. Huge pool with two HOT tubs. Had a slight glitch with room not cleaned on 2nd day and another about not knowing that you can adjust the bed's firmness yourself but manager finally addressed my concerns and resolved. Overall was a great stay.

Overall it was a good experience staying at your hotel, but there were noices at bedtime that bother me and I had to place the A/C unit on ON, constant running of the fan to drown out the other room noices. Also the the quoted internet price and the final amount change by $ 8.00 Why I don't know.

We’re very happy your overall experience was good but we would’ve liked to made it an excellent experience. We apologize about the noise inconveniences you encountered but appreciate you pointing this out so we can fix it right away. Also, the $8.00 you were charged might have been our resort fee tax of $4.00 per night. If you have any pending questions about your final amount charges, please don’t hesitate to call our front desk at 855-277-5057.They will be happy to explain your charges in detail.

Right on the beach. Had good view from balcony. Big pool, 2 hot tubs. This hotel is all the way at the end of the strip so if you like it quiet this is for you. I cut through La Quinta hotel beach deck to get to beach because the sand is very hot and this is shorter route to beach out back.

Spent the week after Labor Day at this hotel and was very pleased with the service, food, and overall quality of the hotel. Convenient access to the pool and beach. Location for families is great since it's on the north end of the SPI strip so not many people there.
