Great location!

This was my second night of a two night stay. Room service did a wonderful job. And the servers at the restaurant was friendly. Overall a good hotel, the best part is the location.

Great location!

The room was clean and the front desk staff during check-in was adequate. However, the room that I reserved was not ready when I checked in. I was told that it would take 45 minutes for them to clean it and asked if I wanted another room. I've had similar situations at other hotels, however I've been offered upgraded rooms. This hotel offered to downgrade my room. I opted to wait for my room. I came back an hour later, and I was told that the room I was waiting on would not be ready any time soon since it needed repairs. I ended up getting the less expensive room, but I was not offered a refund of the difference. According to the front desk, it was because I didn't book with them. They gave Me free parking and breakfast "for the inconvenience". However, when you take into account that I was not refunded any money, I actually paid for at least one of them. The checking out, went smoothly and the front desk clerk was excellent. His name is Carlos.He answered all questions I had. He was very patient and knowledgeable. The staff at the hotel bar was also great.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Lots of chain-style stores are within easy reach on foot - just go under the bridge and turn right. The only thing that seems to be missing, oddly enough, is a drugstore - I believe you'll have to get in the car for that . . .

Good Hotel

There is construction across the street, but it did not bother us. Parking is 16$ per day, coffee in the lobby. Free wifi in room and lobby. I would stay here again.

Hilton Garden Inn

The hotel experience was great as a whole. The only minus is that our reservation was for a Bay View room and when we arrived we were told that there were no rooms available. We ended up with a Hill View room which faced the freeway. Noisy but otherwise fine.

Great place to stay for business

The location is great if you are looking for a place to work. The overall staff was very kind, and helpful. Specfically if you were at the front desk. Staff helped when my car broke down, and were very thoughtful and cheerful overall. The only comment I would make is that the food/room service was a little weird. The hours and the menus did not match what was in the room book. Not a huge deal, but that is about the only thing not great.
