Hotel is nice but dated. A little pricey for the size of the room, but it does have its history. Elvis stayed there in 1975 in room #328 (When it was the Hilton) but many renovations later, and room number changes, that room is now a regular room, and the room number is #1330 in case anyone is wondering. :)...

This was my favorite place to stay becuase of Carlos on the executive floor but it is gone. If anyone knows where Carlos is working now please post it. It's sad that the HI is gone, got lots of good memories from staying there. I hope HI will make a strong effort to bid on being the replacement hotel.

This is a great hotel with the money, clean and comfortable to stay, but you need to be aware of a restaurant waitress if you need to eat in its restaurant. She was not professional, rude to customers, and unsanitized.

The service at this place is great; front desk, reservations and the accounting department. Despite the closing of the door on Sunday! Rarely do you find helpful and good-mood employees in the hospitality industry.

I was a little nervous about staying at this property after reading what other reviewers had to say about it, so I was pleasantly surprised to find upon arriving that the hotel wasn't nearly as "shabby" as other reviewers claimed.
