Prior to my arrival, I had called the hotel to inquire on the sanitation procedures for the guest rooms and if safety measures such as, wearing masks was strictly enforced. I was assured masks were a requirement at all times in public, common areas and the guest room cleaning process she explained, aligned with what I read online on Hilton.com. Thursday late evening we checked in and was once again assured of all these measures, including all linens and pillows replaced with freshly laundered ones. The next day, I observed quite a few young adults lingering in the hallways and front lobby, including a male Hampton Inn staff member WITHOUT masks, all of whom were being observed by 2 front desk staff who said nothing! When I inquired on the policy, which is actually a state mandated policy, I was told all they could do is remind guests and management is currently not evicting anyone not compliant with the mandate. I pointed out, they were looking at them and said nothing to remind them, I received blank stares and nothing further. Suddenly, the mindset of feeling satisfied and safe from every measure I was told over the phone and during check in immediately turned to an anxious feeling of being in an unsafe environment. How many unmasked people have walked by the same common space in the last hour, possibly sneezing or simply talking to another and spreading germs? I was extremely disappointed to continuously observe this non compliance throughout your hotel and over crowding in the pool area. Zero social distancing implementation. It gets worst! I happen to be going back to my room where I thought would be the safer place to be at. After all, I was assured of the heightened cleaning procedure and partnership with Lysol. Plus, I added an extra layer by also wiping down all touch surfaces and bathroom with Lysol wipes. As I pass the hallway, I observed a room being cleaned and after feeling lied to already about the mandated mask wearing, I thought I would watch a while to feel satisfied that I was not being told more untruths about the room sanitation. The housekeeper had all the old bedding, including pillows on the floor, she was replacing the sheets and I figured everything was being replaced with fresh, untouched linen and pillows. TO MY HORROR, she proceeded to take the pillows from the ground, put new pillowcases on the pillows and put the same, used pillows on the bed and the same comforter that was on the ground back on the bed! Essentially, only the flat and fitted sheets have been replaced. When I asked her if she was the same person to clean my room prior to my arrival, she said most likely. I asked about the pillows, etc and she said they never replace the pillows or the zipped pillow covers, only the pillowcases and sheets. My next move was to ask my son to go immediately to Target to buy a couple pillows, covers and a blanket to use the next few days. What was supposed to be a much needed relaxing break from the last 5 months of no days off from work turned into worry and anxiety of what I may have been exposed to the night before using these pillows and comforter that may have been contaminated. While you may have the policies regarding sanitation procedure in place, there is zero oversight that these are being implemented by your staff and housekeepers, who by observation, seem to be creating shortcuts due to sheer laziness and irresponsibly exposing guests to contamination. Clearly, simply writing a policy is not sufficient.

This was perhaps my most disappointing stay at a Hilton property as a Hilton Honors guest. To suggest I had value for the price would be an overstatement. The conditions of the property and the room were very lackluster. Here are some of my observations: - No stairwell from the lobby to the floors above the first floor. It took a walk to the back of the building to get to the stairway and even with that, my keycard did not work. - On the inside of all three elevators, it could be seen that a sticker had been peeled away and the residual of each sticker was still there. I knew what the signs looked like from a previous stay at another Hilton property - During daylight hours, to have to use the room key to enter the lobby seemed unreasonable, especially at checkout time when going back and forth to the car was unavoidable. - Many loose fixtures in my room (room 434). The shower handle and sink handle did not function very well. The shower door hung crookedly. The air conditioner made horrible noise as well and truly sounded as if it might break. - There was a severe need for vacuuming along the baseboards. Noted a pill on the baseboard under the wall desk. - Parking cost $21 a night. I do not know why it would cost that much for nothing more than taking up a 8x12 spot on the property. - On more than one occasion, I could smell marijuana being smoked on the property. - Each morning, there was only one choice for coffee in the lobby, a light roast, no decaf and no flavored creamers. - The bag breakfast is not sensitive for those with special diet needs (i.e. diabetes). Understanding that due to COVID a hot meal cannot be served, it should still be feasible to have a better offering of to-go breakfast items considering the room rates do not seem to have been adjusted for not having a hot breakfast. I would not recommend this property and will not stay there again. I did not feel like a valued Hilton guest at all in light of the conditions at the property.
