Enjoyed the free breakfast. The room was a nice size, though we had a suite. It was quiet and comfortable. A few things: replace any stained mattresses and some of the furniture was starting to fray. Otherwise, good space.

The room was in terrible condition. The carpet was stained, the sofa was stained, the threshold between the carpet and floor was pulling up, the wood floor was sticky, there was no shower liner so the bathroom floor got flooded and the closet door was off the hinge and leaned up in the closet (fine because I was with my teenager but dangerous for a younger kid). I paid $310/night which is way too expensive for the condition of the room. Additionally, we checked in at 4:30 and our room was not yet ready. The front desk woman was lovely and apologetic but it seems crazy that we had to wait for a room at that time.

Smoke smell
Was really disappointed in the room. Wreaked of smoke (cigarette and Marijuana) And then they Switched our room for us and the second room just smelled like marijuana. It was so late at night we didn’t complain again but was very disappointing. Front desk staff was amazing and very helpful, and breakfast buffet was fabulous. Everyone was friendly. Just upsetting about the cleanliness of the room and/or vent system, not sure how cleaning staff didn’t smell that.

Rooms were spacious however, bathrooms were dated. Had a problem at check-in - room wasn't ready and had to wait a coupe hours. Short staff? Manager tried to find us another room but when we opened it, it wasn't ready either. Staff was friendly though and manager offered us a one night credit. Breakfast was surprisingly nice.

I waited 5 hours to check in to my room. Once I was able to finally check in the room still was not clean. I spoke with the manager and was told there would be compensation for the inconvenience then turned out there was none. I’ve been a Hilton Honors member for years and have never had an issue with a Hilton property. This is totally unacceptable. I won’t be returning to this property nor can I recommend it to others.

It was just an average hotel. Overpriced because it was parents weekend. We were the only ones there checking in and once we got in the room realized there were no sheets for the pullout couch, so called the front desk and they said they would be right up, but they never came.

We have stayed at this property numerous times over the last 10 years. Each time we visit we see the condition of the property getting worse. We booked the 2 bedroom suite. It was okay, but the facets dripped in both bathrooms, neither hair dryer worked, and the lampshade by the couch in the common are had a hole in it. Over we were not iimpressed. It cost us $460 per night for 4 nights plus tax. I paid over $2050 for a room that was not worth that amount. I compare that to a two bedroom suite in the DC area (Arlington Homewood Suites) which was a 4 star room. The price for one night was the same. That hotel was worth it. Not the Newark, DE Homewood Suites room.
