They gave my room away without contacting anybody. We drove 6 hours to not have anywhere to stay for another 4 hours. I also have a special needs child that needed dialysis & no one cared at the hotel. Ruined our whole vacation

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Arrived and walked in to a beautiful lobby. That’s where the good stops. Reserved 3 king suites 3 months ago. Got to desk and two of the rooms were downgraded to queen beds, because they overbooked. On top of that 3 groups of people in lobby said they canceled their reservations… Checked in on app and said we’d be there by 5. We arrived even after arguing our situation the rooms were dirty. Had to wait 20 more minutes for the wrong rooms to be cleaned. Rooms were still dirty, as well as the pool was green. Has been green since July 7. Supposedly was going to be fixed after we were scheduled to check out. Just don’t, there’s plenty of other Hotels in the area.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities
I paid months in advance for a particular room type. We were given 4 different rooms until we got to the correct room. This process lasted 2 hours AFTER check-in time. There were no towels in our room. We were told it would be a while because there were no clean towels on the premises. We FINALLY were given some small dingy pool towels and ZERO washcloths or hand towels at 9:00 pm. The pool was not usable. Nowhere on the website does it say NO POOL at this time. I had called in advance specifically to ask about the pool was told there IS a pool, no mention that it DOES NOT WORK! There were dirty socks left in our room also. Hilton needs to hire new management. The managers I met are both very young and inexperienced, seemed very overwhelmed. There were customers lined up for hours with complaints!

Staff was super sweet, easy check in and out. We were traveling for vacation and really wanted to go swimming but the pool was awful. Green and cloudy so that’s the only disappointment other then that I would stay there again.
