Hilton Cocoa Beach Oceanfront
Travel Blogs from Cocoa Beach
Départ de Miami Beach direction Cape Canaveral. Le GPS nous fait passer par des quartiers moins glamours de la ville, ce qui tranche nettement avec les hôtels et villas de Miami beach. Une bonne occasion de se remettre en tête qu'il n'y a pas que le rêve américain, même en Floride.

We wandered Lincoln Boulevard which is part pedestrian strip where there were art galleries and higher end shops such as Lacoste, H&M, Guess, etc. We did some window shopping, then went and grabbed some lunch from a cafe called Paul, a French bakery. The food was fantastic, we had a turkey club sandwich and ...

Then we hopped on our bikes to go see the giant cross and Shrine museum, where the same docent magically appeared, although we were on the other side of town, to tell us even more about the shrine.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Cocoa Beach Oceanfront
Disappointing sub standard hotel
Smelly and old and in great need of a refurb. This is he worst hotel I have ever stayed in and I cannot believe that Hilton has it's name on it. Instead stay at the double tree up the road which is supurb. The food is not fab but the building and rooms are new and the service brilliant. To eat go to Bernard Surf south of the hotel and enjoy friendly people and great food.
Hilton location was perfect
I recently stayed at the Cocoa Beach Hilton and I was concerned because of some of the reviews that I came across (after I booked) on this site. I was relieved to find a clean room - NO mold or dirty laundry - believe me - I looked under each bed. It is an older hotel, but the beach is breathtaking. We had breakfast - AYCE buffet for $7.99 in the hotel restaurant directly across from the ocean. It was awesome. I didn't want to leave my table. The only thing I was disappointed in (and also lacked at the hotel in Orlando) was a hot tub. The staff was great and helpful for sightseeing. It was better than I thought it was going to be!
Not up to the hilton standard. We had a "club level" room, there was a continental breakfast available in the club, but the hostess watched your every move and was so desparate for a tip it was pathetic. that was about all the amenities for having a club room. on weekdays, i think they had cordials or something, but we were there on a weekend.
Not what we expected
We stayed here for bike week in 2003. The hotel was ok. Ususally all of the other Hiltons I have ever stayed at were alot nicer but it was decent. We had a regular room on a high floor. The room was clean. The restaurant was very good. They have a buffet on the weekend that is all you can eat and it overlooks the ocean. There is a pool and a tiki bar facing the ocean. There was a wedding the when we stayed but not any trouble.
Not up to Hilton standards
I only stayed here one night and I thought that it was just an okay hotel. I was expecting more because of the Hilton name. The appearance of the hotel is kind of cold and drab. It looks like it should be in a city rather than on the beach. The rooms do not have balconies and the windows don't open. Our room also had alot of ants near the window. It is a good hotel for business but not for vacation. The only thing that was good was the location- right on the beach.
Staff was great
I had a great time at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and went the extra mile to please us. The pool was a little small but it was heated and sufficed. It's right on the beach so thats always a plus. I would recomend staying here.
Outstanding atmosphere, food, pool
Our family has enjoyed returning to the Cocoa Beach Hilton every year. We rate the Hilton 'excellent' in service, cleanliness, and dining. The pool deck and bar are wonderful and lead to the ocean. Bob the bartender made the best drinks in Fl. The food was prepared to satisfaction and consistently!
I usually stay at a Sheraton or Westin and try to pick luxury accomodations. We booked a last minute trip and I trusted the Hilton name. This hotel was not only dirty and full of mold, it was so old that it was plan rundown. It rained during our stay and the windows poured rain into the room and soaked the carpet about 4 feet of carpet wall to wall was so soaked, you couldnt get near the window. We were moved to another room and still the same problem. I can only imagine what is under that carpet after being rained on time after time. My asthma couldnt take the mold at this place! The chair in the top of the line suite was dirty and stained, the bathroom had peeling paint and had mold on the door jam. There was no hot water unless you rain the facet a minimum of 30 minutes, it plain smelled in there. And all this joy for $159 night.
No Frills, Family Fun
My family and I stayed here for Easter Break of 2002 and had a great time. It was clean and the staff members were friendly. The price was great, so we knew that the hotel was going to have "no frills." The pool was small but the hotel was right on the beach. Restaurants were nearby and my kids loved Ron Jon's Surfshop, which was right down the main strip.
Hilton at Cocoa Beach
Hilton Hotels have always been nice till we got to this one. The room was no frills, had dirty laundry under the bed. The room had a view of the beach but you couldn't open any of the windows. The restaurant food was cold and stale, breakfast was very limited to stale donuts and old eggs. There was sundry shop about the size of small closet that had enough room to turn around in to make a fast exit.
For the money you would have been better off staying at a Holiday Inn or Howard Johnson's. A bad deal all the way around, wouldn't recommend this to anyone.
