I stay at the Hilton on Purley Way quite regularly, the last time being at the end of April. I find the service to be quite consistently good, quite attentive and never any problems or delays when checking in/out.
Yes, the rooms are quite tired and could do with a major overhaul (especially the bathrooms) but the rooms are spacious and well equipped. Beds are comfortable, housekeeping never intrusive or too noisy. The only real downside is that the rooms can get very very stuffy during the summer months and the air conditioning does not really do anything to combat that except being exceptionally noisy.
The best aspect about the Hilton is the free car parking of which there is ample availability. The location may not be the best for tourists wanting to explore the capital but for people like me who attend an annual event in the local area it is the perfect option as it is not far from the M25 (about a twenty minute drive) and Central Croydon is quite easily accessible by bus and there are quick links to London Bridge and Victoria through East Croydon station.
Never tried the restaurant in the hotel but it looks quite nice (recently refurbished and upgraded it seems). There are several food options nearby, Pizza Hut and McDonald's in the Colonnades nearby and a pub, The Gypsy Moth. TGI Friday's opposite that and a restaurant in the Aerodrome Hotel.
