For the past several years, we have stayed here as our overnight stop on the way to Ocean City MD. Once again, it was an excellent stay... the desk staff were more than friendly and efficient and the rooms were clean, well-appointed and quiet. There is a charge for breakfast, but the quality of the breakfast and the service certainly made it a good value. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and we will book there again next year.

Room Tip: Upper floor, away from elevator

I stayed here for one night on August 17. The room was beautifully appointed and very comfortable; the staff was welcoming and my meal at the restaurant was very enjoyable and relaxing. Walking distance to Starbucks. I had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and will definitely return. Excellent waypoint for travelers.

Our stay for the night was good. Clean, well-appointed, fresh-smelling room with personal Keurig machine, fridge and microwave, adjustable-firmness beds (which we didn't figure out, so slept on firmer-than-we'd-like mattresses,) well-kept grounds and lobby, easy check-in. When we took a look in the cafe area in the morning, we found an excellent spread of fruit, baked goods, condiments, hot cereal, make-your-own waffles, scrambled eggs, french toast sticks and sausage that we've experienced at other hotels of this class as the COMPLIMENTARY continental breakfast. When we approached the area where the warm food was displayed in a kitchen-service window, we were asked if we'd like to order anything else. When we asked what else there was, we were pointed to a large menu on the wall. We chose not to order from the menu, but selected our food from the displayed selections.
Partway thru our meal, we were surprised to have a folder with a bill in it, placed on our table which would be charged to our room. It was then that we noticed at the very top corner of the wall menu, "$8.95". There was nothing else to indicate that this was not the usual FREE breakfast provided with your room stay. We paid the bill without complaint, and even left a small tip for the waitresses who were pouring coffee and cleaning the tables, but want others to beware, there's no free breakfast at Hilton Garden.

This Hilton has excellent staff and is well managed / maintained. The staff will help you with anything you ask, even if it is outside of their job. IE van driver will get you an extra pillow or bring food up to your room. Front Desk will help you with anything you might need and the bar / restaurant has some very delicious food.This is where I will stay for now on if I am doing business in the area!

Everything about the Hilton Garden Inn was wonderful. I loved everything they had to offer. The service, the cleanliness, and décor all were everything you could expect and highly recommend anyone to stay and feel good about your time there. Even one of the housekeepers, Sherry, left a welcoming note...very nice touch!

We were traveling and needed a room for the night. I called this establishment. I was put on hold and endured a slightly long wait; however, when the call was taken, a friendly young man helped us book a room. The room was large and clean. If had decent amenities. The morning breakfast was delicious, and the wait staff and chef were friendly. I recommend this hotel for business, or for people passing through.
