My husband and I stayed at the Hill House this weekend with a deal we found through living social. We were disappointed in our stay for numerous reasons. Here are the things we did not love about the hotel:
1. Decor of rooms is very dated and worn out. I felt like I was staying at my great-grandmother's house. The multiple clashing floral patterns on the walls, floor and bedspread were very unappealing. The wallpaper in the bathroom was peeling and the bathrooms obviously have not been updated since the '80s.
2. Continental breakfast was very meager - plastic-wrapped bagels, hard boiled eggs, do-it-yourself waffles, and a few pieces of whole fruit (apples, oranges). I had expected to find pastries and sliced fruit such as melon, strawberries, or grapes.
3. No ocean view from our room.
4. No onsite restaurant or bar.
5. Feather pillows on the bed - I hate how they flatten out throughout the night.
6. No soap dish in the bathroom.
7. Bath products provided in the bathroom were very low quality. For a hotel in this price bracket, I would have expected high end products.
Things we did enjoy about the hotel:
1. Perfect location, a short walk into the main part of town.
2. Outside appearance of the hotel is charming.
3. Front desk staff was helpful and cleaning lady was very nice.
4. Room was spacious and clean.
Overall, we were not impressed by the Hill House and we will not be coming back.
