The bathtub was dirty when we arrived. The AC didn’t work. The dial on it was broken off so there was no temperature regulation. It was either too hot in the room or too cold and we had no control. It would blow hot and cold air at its own whim. The sink was clogged. The hot tub was dirty. We saw dirt patches floating in it along with hair.

Rooms were not cleaned properly and they (2) stunk. The first room I checked into was clearly not cleaned well. There were dirt marks on the furniture, fecal stains in the toilet bowl, and the room stunk. BAD! I switched rooms and that room was also not cleaned well. I had to clean to rooms myself with the Clorox wipes I travel with. The second room had a strong smell of air-spray that smelled like old cologne. Almost as if they were trying to mask a bad smell. The windows in both rooms were extremely dirty. So much so you could barely see out of them. It felt like I was staying at a old dirty motel. No room service whatsoever. An overall terrible experience and I will NEVER go back. This Hilton should be called the “Hilton by Motel 6”. Read less

I found all the staff to be helpful and friendly. The rooms where clean. I extended my stay for another night. And enjoyed a full breakfast. The room was clean and well stocked. I really liked the 24 hour front desk hours.
