Hilton Garden Inn Valencia Six Flags
Travel Blogs from Valencia
Da unser Reiseführer für den Bezirk Downtown Los Angeles wenig lobende Worte fand, konnten wir uns für ein eingehendes Sightseeing der unüberschaubaren Stadt nicht erwärmen. Wir entschieden uns daher, am Samstag nur ein paar wenige „hot spots" anzusteuern. Bevor wir losdüsten, sicherten wir uns ein Sonderangebot: Das Hilton Garden Inn in …
I've never been one for large, fast, thrill something or other metal flunks that swing you around but as per the request here we were at magic mountain, the theme park with the worlds most high thrill roller coasters in one spot. Yah. To be fair it wasn't that bad, it did however result in excessive screaming, standing in huge lines and pretty bad …
We checked out of the hotel and drove up to Siz Flags today. Our new hotel (the Hilton Garden Inn) was just outside Siz Flags. Devin and I dropped Lauren and Amber off and did the short walk up the hill to the entrance. We headed straight for the Goliath roller coaster (which Lauren did when she was 8!). No lines there and the ride was steep and …

Another tiring day sightseeing but what fun.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Garden Inn Valencia Six Flags
Great location for Six Flags visitors
This is a nice hotel with a clean room, decent price, and close in proxsimity to Six Flags, Valencie. While the hotel was nice we were not impressed at all with Six Flags. It was dirty, hot, and had extremely over-priced food. We had just come from DisneyLand, so possibly this led to our dissapointment. I would definitly recommend checking out another theme-park before coming to visit this one, but if you do the Hilton is a nice place to stay for about $120 a night.
Perfect location for Magic Mountain trip
We just spent a night (11/7) at the Garden Inn after a Cheer competition at Magic Mountain. The hotel is very clean and comfortable BUT there is major construction happening on the freeway right behind the Inn and its being done primarily at night. It sounded like a helicopter was landing in the parking lot every time the jackhammers started up making it tough to sleep. We put the fan system on and that covered most of the noise..wasn't bad for one night but it would get old if you were staying longer. Other than that it was perfect and we will probably stay there again when visiting Magic Mountain.
Good value & very convenient for six flags
We stayed here in late August . Hotel staff were helpful. Very well located for six flags we were able to nip back to hotel for a swim mid afternoon and go back to park for more fun in afternoon. Would stay again.
An excellent hotel for 6 flags
we stayed here for one night for 1 reason only we were going to 6 flags. but note the bus only runs for 2 hours in the mornig and 2 hours at night. that said however it took us about 30 mins and we walk slowly to get inside the park so we didn't really mind. there's a resturant in the hotel but it's sort of cheap and cheerful we did eat there and it was ok but nothing special. i must say then staff were great from start to finish. at check in we were given buy one get one free card for six flags which saved us $50 and i was really ill in the night the next morning i had to go to a phamacy and the hotel staff helped us out a lot with directions and things. the rooms are large with microwave and fridge as standard. overall a nice stay and ideal for 6 flags.
My family and I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn from August 1, 2004 to August 4, 2004. The room was nice, the beds were comfortable, housekeeping was thorough, and you can't beat the location if you're heading to Six Flags (which we were). But, I felt misled by the staff and wanted to pass a warning on to others. The main reason we chose the Hilton was because it offered a shuttle to the park. With daily parking at $8.00, this was a significant incentive. Plus, the shuttle offered an easy way to get back and forth (I figured we might want to leave the park during the busy time of the day and then return later). When I called to make our reservation (and this was at the hotel, not through central reservations), I specifically asked about the shuttle and was told that it ran on the half-hour. When we got to the hotel, I learned the real truth. The shuttle only runs for 2 hours in the morning, and 2 hours at night, and they charge $2.00 per person. So, not only can you not come and go at ease (you're basically stranded at the park the entire day, which is not an entirely bad thing but something to know), with a family of 4 it's a wash against the price to park. When I raised the issue with the staff at the hotel, they were not at all helpful. I found this odd for a Hilton property. You would expect that if a guest has a problem, the response would be "how can we make it up to you?" (and it would not have been a difficult thing to do). But instead I was told only that the issue would be raised at the next staff meeting. Ouch. I expect that on our next visit to Six Flags we will stay at a different hotel which, though it may not have a shuttle, will at least take proper care of its guests.
We received a gift certificate for the Romance package at the Hilton Garden Inn in Valencia. Included was to be champange, chocolates, breakfast for 2 and bath amenities.
Best Service Ever!
The service at the Hilton was the friendliest and most helpful that I have ever recieved! The people at the check in counter were able to answer all our questions about directions for area attractions and resturants. Room service was fast and reasonably priced with generouse helpings. The wait staff in the dining room was very accomidating. The building its self is beautiful with two inner court yards one for dinning the other containing the pool and spa. The atmosphere is very cozy with southwestern style architecture. the hotel is also located just seconds away from Six Flags Magic Mountain, which makes this location great for families and those young at heart.
Friendly and Cozy
I stayed here about 9 months ago with a small group from my school. The hotel lobby was very cozy and had a beautiful fireplace in the middle.
We arrived from Honolulu at about 6AM, jet-lagged, sleepy and freezing.
Check-in wasn't for a few hours so we decided to have breakfast at the hotel. After our delicious breakfast we still had quite a bit of time to kill so we lounged in the comfy sofas and around the fire. The staff was gracious enough to get us into our rooms before the official check-in time. The rooms were a very generous size and the decor was nice and cozy. I had a very nice and comfortable stay there and hope to return again one day!
Nice hotel, but beware of children
This is a very nice newer facility with large, clean rooms and a friendly staff. It's the closest hotel to Magic Mountain, and as such, also the busiest. We stayed here during a peak vacation period, and there were LOTS of kids also staying here for obvious reasons. Unfortunately, I was disappointed in our stay because we had quite a rowdy group of teens who constantly ran up and down the hallway all night, yelling and slamming doors. Even after calling the front desk and having security come up to ask them to quiet down, they kept us awake until well after 2am. I have no complaints about the hotel itself, but I wouldn't stay here again just because of how busy it is.
We experienced EXCELLENT customer service at the front desk upon check-in and throughout our entire stay. As a meeting planner and traveler, it is rare these days to receive such top notch, personal service where the staff cares. The staff was very friendly, always willing to answer your questions or make a phone call for you. The hotel is conveniently located to Six Flags (with shuttle service available) and within walking distance of a couple of restaurants. Nice size rooms with vaulted ceilings, great pool and hot tub. First impressions are everything and my husband and I would definitely stay there again if we are ever in the area again.
