"Deceitful Reservation Process."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
I phoned the hotel's 512 #, but after unsatisfactory stay, I learned I had been directed to a “third party” reservation line. I requested a room near lobby or at least near elevator but was on 3rd floor, end of hall as far as possible from elevators. Hilton is dishonest.

26-Nov-2021 Verified Review, stayed from Wed Nov 24 to Fri Nov 26 2021 at a $154.99 average nightly rate.
"Breakfast was appalling. Additional taxes, etc. were excessive."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The breakfast, which was not included in the room rate, consisted of a meager single serving of a scrambled egg (I would question if it was a whole egg) a little bit of potatoes and a very few slices of a sausage link (perhaps totaling a quarter of the link). Additional cost of $8.00. McDonalds would have been better. Additional taxes, etc., were not included in the reservation information. They totaled over $50. I will not stay in another Garden Inn. EVER.

"About Average"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Decent hotel, nice sized rooms, the roll in shower should have been thought out better. When sitting on the bench the controls are behind you, no ledge for shampoo or soap and the portable shower head doesn't come off to thoroughly rinse off when seated.
