We came at 5 pm and room still was not ready due to shortage of staff, check-in time 3 pm though. We waited 40 minutes before we were able to check into our room. Once we entered the room we stepped right on food crumbs left after previous tenants. The room was generally very dusty and dirty, especially all around the bed, which was also additional disappointment. Bed linen wasn’t changed!!!, we found amount of stains on sheets. After we head off the room for a walk, I asked host to clean up the floor properly while we are out. When we were back we found room in the same bad condition. Our experience was very unpleasant.

- Location is okay, really close to the Alamo & the Rivercenter mall. However, the Days Inn right next door changed buildings & its now being leased to the city & converted to a homeless shelter. Area felt a bit insecure at night. - You need to ask for the room to be made a day in advance, otherwise it won’t be. The issue is that nobody in the front desk mentioned it during our check in. They were also full during our visit, so we had to wait until noon for additional towels. - Inconsistent front desk staff, some were helpful, some could be rude & unattentive. - No closet in our room, just some places to hang clothes - Breakfast is mediocre, not a lot of variety. - Tv was okay, room was decently sized & clean, bed was comfortable (although three pillows wasn’t enough) Overall, given the priced we paid, we felt like it was a little bit disappointing. But there are much worse options out there.

Alex was Amazing! The property sits on a corner across the street from a Days Inn! The room is small, but the bathroom is big! It’s not a hotel I would want to stay in the room All day! You would just want to sleep there in my opinion! Not sure why Hilton’s name is on this one!! It’s not really a Hilton!! Again, Alex professional made the stay good! Otherwise, this review would be different!!
