    Super Clean Hotel

    This hotel is an ultra clean hotel with access to the convention center. Will always stay here when going to the convention center.

  • 8,0.Very good

    Parking should be free with room.

    I think for the price of the room and it not having a microwave and the shower pressure was horrible the parking should be free with the room. Other than that it was a good stay. My daughter enjoyed the pool and the staff was super friendly.

    Meh.

    It was a very mediocre stay. Nothing special. More expensive than other hotels in the area. We were duped by the Hilton name, but it was super basic and nothing special. Would not recommend.

    Not up to the standard you think Hilton should be

    The first night right after we checked out (literally no more than 10 minutes after check in) we had a knock on our door that we would we without power, water, or HVAC for the entire night due to an emergency in the city. No one would provide further information on what the said emergency was (and being out of state in a city we don’t know, this caused panic) and we were just checking in and hoping to get something to eat, shower and then go to bed— but was unable to do any of that. They provided bottled water in the lobby, and a cold breakfast in the morning— but that didn’t make up for the lack of amenities ALL night until 7-730am! There were other local hotels that had power, water and heat all night right down the road— but nothing was mentioned at check in or offered to find similar hotels. Our bed didn’t even have a fitted sheet on it, a flat sheet was tucked under the mattress, the bed was lumpy, and the microwave in the room was missing parts and wobbled. For the price that was paid (due to thinking it was a “better known” hotel) I am overall unhappy and could’ve stayed elsewhere cheaper and gotten the same quality of a stay, WITH power and being able to relax upon check in.

    Would have been better if they brought food to door of room instead of making us go down to front desk to pickup food.
