                  I felt the employees were friendly and liked their jobs. The front desk gave us an upgrade to a beach view room . It was lovely. It was perfectly located for us for our getaway time.

                  Location and room choice were the best part.

                  Having to pay for high speed internet, no fridge in room.

                  The service in the dining room....I had to wait 25 minutes to be seated with more than 10 tables empty and dirty. There was no bus boy on staff and waitressess had to clean tables and couldn't keep up...the Sunday Brunch was terrible, not worth the $12.99

                  Everything except the hot tub HAS TO STAY AVAILABLE later at night during the RALLY weekend!!! We filled your hotel up so please listen to this request. We are adults and making zero noise, just relaxing. 508 rooms X 750.00 @ weekend I hope this problem will be corrected next year. Stanley Cole

                  Getting kicked out of the hot tub every night Heating the pool would be nice also

                  Location

                  Bathroom wasn't as clean as it should have been. The tub and tile need deep cleaning.

                  The facility is wonderful. Staff were all very helpful. Dining was very enjoyable and good prices.

                  There was nothing that we didn't like about staying at the hilton.

                  The staff, the mattress, the swimming pool

                  The bath tub was not as clean as expected, there was mold.

                  We enjoyed the hotel's location, comfort, staff, and its proximity to Landrys Restaurant and IHOP. Would highly recommend!

                  The staff were very helpful and polite.

                  The air conditioner never did cool the room so we spent an uncomfortably warm night.

                • Couple
                  7.8

                  Great stay. Only issue was our room was by the ice/vending and the door would slam shut. Was not fixed when we left but they were notified. Rooms 125,6, and 7. Other than that we really enjoyed our time there.

                  The location was excellent. The pool was very ice. The beds were vey comfortable.

                  No refridgerator. Small rooms. Couldn't sit on the balcony because of the exhaust coming off of the air-conditioner. Charging for for wifi is crazy. I had to use the computer in the business room and I needed to print out a contract but the charge was $1.00 a page. The charge for the use of the computer was way to expensive and it printed out a receipt and charger me $1.00 for it. i won't be staying at this hotel again I would not recommend it to my friends

                  Good location, Easy to find, great pool. Free parking

                  Staff in Restaurant, on two occasions, left us for a long time before taking our order then came with the wrong order and in one case completely forgot the order. At breakfast time the staff seemed more concerned with setting tables than serving tables. Also paying for internet access just isn't on in this day and age.

                  9.6

                  Comfy beds!! Nice pool

                  Room located off of main hallway so could hear people coming and going

                • Family with children
                  7.4

                  They accommodated our reservation even though Booked.net screwed it up. I reserved for the 12th, checking out the 13th but the reservation emailed to me was for checking in the 11th and checking out the 12th. I have probably double paid and will seek reimbursement from Booked.net.
