I had some concerns when I researched where to stay during our 3 night in Pullman as some of the reviews for Hilltop were quiet negative. However, our stay could not have been better. The people of Hilltop were pleasant, friendly, helpful, and customer-service oriented. Check-in was quick and easy. Although we had arrived early afternoon, we were able to...

We have been traveling a good portion of the summer and we found this hotel to be a breath of fresh air. The folks at the front desk were friendly and polite. Great room with large area around the bathroom sink. The breakfast was ample and diverse. They even had a large full container of cut fruit (cantaloupe, honey dew,...

I can't say enough about how AMAZING everyone and everything was at the Hilltop in Pullman! From the friendly greetings to the speedy service to the delicious food to the amazing evening view from the patio, everything was top notch. I was shocked over and over by the willingness of the staff to meet the needs of nearly 100 friends...

I came into town from Canada for a funeral, and chose the Hilltop due to the pool (for my two boys) and memories from university days as it being a fun place to unwind. But I have to say, I left very disappointed, and surprised that the reviews were as high as they are. When I checked in, they were...

The room assigned upon arrival was not made up. This was corrected immediately with apologies by assigning us to a different room. The room was adequate,clean, and quiet, but showed wear and the furnishings should be updated. Breakfast was typical for this kind of mid-level accommodation but light on fruit. However, the view of Pullman across the valley is very...

Our room was large, clean, and comfortable. There was a fridge and microwave in the room for no extra charge. A decent breakfast was included with the stay. The pool water looked green, so we were not too excited to try the pool. Because of the hill it is located on, you will want to drive into town. I was...

My Sweetheart and I went to Hilltop as a reminiscent place we went as young teens, this was the swanky place to go before prom or major events. The atmosphere was great, the food was very good and the service was great. You felt that you were spending time and well worth the money. Now to the present. The restaurant...

We decided to stay at this hotel since it was only a couple of miles away from my sister. I guess they have recently remodeled. Our room was nice and even had a full kitchen. The only thing negative I can say is that our room didn't have blackout curtains. Everyone was nice. Parking was easy. Room was very spacious...

What a wonderful facility. Rooms are clean, comfortable, quiet, and well appointed. There is hot coffee/tea in the lobby 24/7 in addition to their in-house restaurant and lounge. The restaurant's food was excellent and the service was even better. We didn't use it, but there was a small, indoor pool at this facility. Every employee we encountered was extremely friendly...

Stayed there on the night of 4/16/2016. The first warning was the prices went up 20% because it was an "event weekend" at Washington State University. Second warning was the smell of marijuana in the hallway. Third was the constant slamming of the room doors by other guest. Forth was I complained of noise to front desk at 9:45 pm...

Thank you for taking time to write a review. We were sold out that weekend due to 5 different events going on in Pullman. We do charge $500 for smoking in the hotel. We do not permit smoking in any room - unfortunately, guests choose to not follow that rule and we do our best to put a stop to...
