Staff was very nice and prompt answering problems - location great !
The hotel is closing for 18 months for renovations so only 4th floor was open. We had two rooms - the AC didn't work well in one of the rooms despite the handyman looking at it . No stove - small frig - sliding doors difficult to open. All views face parking lot. Paid close to two grand for 4 days. Not worth that amount
Closed to the beach
Upon checking we were told this hotel was closing 2 days after our stay for remodeling . We were expected a great 4th of July at the beach unfortunately there was no mention of this hotel closing online. Restaurant closed, bar closed, limited staff, way too expensive $400 a night for a shutting down facility. Hotel was like a ghost town except for the other disappointed guests. Very disappointed in Booking.com for not disclosing this very important information when booking on line.
Great staff and very friendly, good location and the hotel was very well maintained. Looking forward to returning. One of the best beaches around.
The poolside bar personnel were excellent. We are lunch each day that we were there and it was great. I loved that it was not a huge hotel and not super crowded. The view was wonderful
It needed some sprucing up
location and staff
improper maintenance of the pool e.g. black algae everywhere. Exterior of the building (roofs) in need of repair. Excessive amount of rust and mildew.
Friendly staff in great location with free shuttle bus to St Armands for shopping and restaurants.
Not staying longer!!!!!!
The total ongoing saga as to when the hotel will be closing for remodelling - this has been going on for at least 3 years so wake up Hilton
We loved the location and the size of the property. It was very easy to get from the hotel grounds to the beach. The staff was excellent, very friendly and accommodating. There wasn't a ton of "rules", it was a very laid back environment. The view from our poolside room was beautiful, you could see the ocean perfectly. The hotel shuttle service was great too - very friendly driver and on time to pick us back up.
The hotel is in need of renovating, although it is very clean there are obvious repairs to be done. Renovations are scheduled this April/May. The patio door to the balcony does not have a screen?? Unless you want a ton of bugs in your room at night you can't leave the door open to listen to the ocean while you sleep. We did not care for the pillows either they were big and hard to sleep with-woke up with kinked necks. The choices for dining at the hotel are limited to one resturaunt, and we felt the dinner menu was very limited and expensive. For the price of the rooms, we also felt a voucher for one or two breakfast buffets should have been included. The breakfast buffet is good but cost $14.99/person. There are no other choices for breakfast there.
The staff were awesome. Friendly and accommodating. The staff made the place.
It was a 40 year old hotel with tired decor. It is being demolished as we speak and a new Hilton will be built. Apparently the building of the new facility will take a year and a half.
Good beach location and facilities
In need of an update, believe refurbishment is planned soon
This resort was in a good location and we slept well until housekeeping and other guests started making noise, can't be avoided, I guess.
What we didn't like was the cost of $250 per night for the room, which desperately needs a remodel. We have paid half that for a room 10X the quality. The walls were cracking and had holes, peeling, and were banged up. Popcorn ceiling, what? Bathroom was atrocious. Toilet was actually leaning as floor was uneven.
There actually going to demolish this property next month. Booking.com you owe us what ever sales commission that you made on our reservations. Anthony J. Tommarello
Very clean and outdoor furniture a big plus; food was excellent
My wife and I hated to leave; Lord willing we plan on coming back someday... Thank you for everything!!
Dining room and bar staff very friendly. Front desk somewhat rude.
Bugs in our room!
Great location and beach
Needs serious development and better facilities
Small, friendly resort with a nice pool and right on the beach. The staff were very friendly and there was a great atmosphere.
The whole complex is about to undergo renovation, which is needed as the resort is a bit "tired" but it is to be enlarged and that may alter it's character.
