    I chose the Hilton because it was a similar price to all the other hotels in the area but once we got there we realized that’s because everything other than a bed costs extra. $3 for a bottle of water, $30 for a continental breakfast where there were birds flying around us even though we sat inside. At night it sounded like everyone was hanging out right outside our door. If you want to stay somewhere nice, pay a little extra and go somewhere else. If you just want a bed to crash in, pay a lot less and go somewhere else

    We weren't able to check in early without upgrading to a suite. We expected something very nice, but instead other than it was large. It was not up to par. The blinds were broken and wouldn't stay open. The duel shower with jets wasn't the cleanest looking but only one side had hot water working. And the slider door lock was broken. I would not care to stay here again and I would not recommend the suite with ocean view that we had unless they did some renovating. The hotel itself and the grounds were beautiful.

    Hotel in nice and clean but didn’t like that they charge you for everything that’s in the room like wine even the bottle of water. I was even afraid to drink the coffee that I might get charged for that too.
