Hotel was super nice and clean. In a really good location next to the beach. Valet guys were all awesome! Out room had a good view of the beach. Right next to the downtown scene. Overall a great hotel to stay at, cannot wait for the renovations to be completed.

the location here is good because it is walking distance from the mall and other resorts. it feels a lot like a dated family place as far as decor, as it hasn't been renovated yet. the construction that is in place wasn't disturbing and it should hopefully make a good difference in the overall look of the place.

Always a great stay at this Hilton property. Staff is friendly, rooms are clean and you can't beat the location. Walking distance to Main Street or you can use the shuttle. Always stay here when I come to visit.

This hotel is under renovation (lobby area) I will have give a 4 rating if the Valet parking wasn't so expensive ($34US per day) why do you have to pay so much for your car since you already pay for your room??
