This was our first time staying in a Hilton TRU! We were pleasantly surprised at how nice and clean the lobby and the rooms were! We was checked in at the front desk by a young girl named Day. She was so welcoming! Later l was having trouble connecting to the Internet and she was so helpful! She took the time to go on the website and found out my last name was misspelled on the website and that’s why l couldn’t connect. The room was new and the walk-in shower had great water pressure! We will definitely stay here again on our next trip!

While traveling south on I 26 we needed a hotel to stay in. We were lucky enough to find the true by Hilton in Orangeburg South Carolina. We were quite hesitant to stay in a hotel with the coronavirus pandemic happening. Once arriving in the hotel, the desk clerk made us feel very comfortable. They were definitely practicing self distancing and keeping everything sanitized.
Once we checked into the room, we were quite surprised, no carpet and not curtains! Instead they have wood floor and roll down blinds.
The bed was very comfortable, the sheets were so soft and luxurious as well as the pillows. We all slept very well!
Due to the coronavirus, they had premade bags of breakfast for everyone to pick up and take back to their rooms to eat. You could also get your coffee and creamer. They had gloves for everybody to wear while making your coffee or picking up your food. It made us feel very comfortable that they were taking all of these extra measures to keep us safe.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. We did not take part in any of the extra things at the hotel offered since they were really not available at this time.
I will definitely stay in another true by Hilton.

A tru model for hotels on highways. Very bright happy lobby. Lots of snacks to buy. Rooms have no carpet - no smells! Brilliant!
Blinds to block parking lot lights!
Quiet. There was a small refrigerator, large TV. We had shower with glass doors. Remote sealed in bag and door had positive tape to insure cleaned room . Walk to Wendy’s or Sonic for treats.
Second time staying here.

I'm so surprised by the positive reviews for this place. Hilton built a cheap chain but it doesn't reflect in the price. Hampton is next door and relatively new also and was only $10 more but I was curious about this new chain. Never again. Starting outside, there is no canopy, so if it's raining, oh well, plan on getting drenched. I'm a Hilton honors member but used a Hotels.com gift card to pay online. They would not accept it unless I could produce it, which I couldn't, so I ended up paying with my card which really upset me to start with. Snowbirds use this route alot and every hotel I have stayed at along this route offers a free breakfast beginning at 6:00 am (we wish it were earlier); theirs begins at 7:00 am and no to go bags either. No coffee pot in the room either, only in the lobby. So it actually cost me $15 more cause we ate on the road. Hampton begins at 6 and also has to go bags. If you want ice or bucket, you have to go to the lobby. The location was behind Ruby Tuesdays which was good but the room was incredibly noisy. At 2:00 am I could hear loud talking which woke me up. The room is SMALL. just enough to get to the bed and if you use the chair, it takes up all the walking space. The furniture is, well let's just say, you wouldn't stay more than 1 night. The soap and shampoo is in these tall plastic dispensers and if you have a problem with grip, you're not getting any. Now for the pros - no carpet, shades were nice and the bathroom (other than the dispensers) was nice. It was very clean. Hilton decided to build a new chain and saved a penny everywhere possible. Only problem is, not one of those pennies is passed on to the consumer.

Thank you for your review. We are always eager to hear from our guests, so we appreciate you taking the time to share this feedback with our staff. Our goal as a brand is to provide smaller, more efficiently designed rooms that provide thoughtful storage spaces, large bathrooms and all the essentials for an enjoyable travel experience. Our re-imagined lobby is designed to be an extension of our guest rooms that provides a relaxing place to gather for both business and leisure travelers alike. With ample seating, semi-private alcoves and free wireless printing, our lobby offers a comfortable work environment for our guests. In addition, there is a pool table, board games and giant media wall available for guest entertainment. We understand that each and every traveler places value in different floor plans, designs and amenities. We hope that the size of our guest rooms did not prove to be too much of an inconvenience during your stay and that you were able to take advantage of our spacious lobby while you were in town. We are grateful for your feedback and wish you all the best during your travel adventures!

We are regulars at Hilton hotels but have never stayed at a Tru before, as it was only a 10 hour layover and a seemingly NEW facility I decided to give them a try and save $20 on a regular Hilton.

First off I wanted a shower, I ran the water and it was Cold, I tried all positions on the sink taps and still Cold, I went to reception and asked if there was a problem with the water, they asked my room location and I was then told "The water will take 5 minutes to get warm in that end of the building" I'd probably accept that in a 1960's motel run by Ma and Pa - but this is a NEW hotel ??? I opted for leaving the tap running and wasting water for 5 mins (it actually took 3 Minutes) while I got ready.

As said by others, the staff are wonderful, the breakfast is mediocre.

So, time comes for bed and I turn the light out . . . OMG did they just get the bedside lamp out of a lake? To say it was rusty was an understatement! Which now gave me concerns about the humidity in the room ?

Suffice to say I won't be returning, I will spend the extra $'s on a Hampton.

While I am a Hilton Honors Gold Member, this was our first time at a Tru by Hilton. I chose it off the Hilton app as a stopping point on our trip to Florida. We liked the vibe of the lobby and the check in team was very friendly.

I’m open to trying new things, but initially my husband said, “don’t ever choose one of these (Tru) again. He thought the room was very small and had no closet or dresser, just hanging space. However, the king bed was very comfy and bath was spacious and had all needed amenities. You can tell this is a new “concept” as there were USB ports all over the room.

Great location, right off highway and close to many fast food and chain restaurants.

The next morning my husband appreciated great coffee, excellent bagels and I had eggs and sausage for breakfast. The breakfast /morning team was also very friendly!

So, we retired baby boomers may not have used or appreciated all of the “cool” things - pool table and swing chairs in lobby, water bottle refilling station, etc., - but we had a good night’s rest, good breakfast and were made very welcome by the Tru Team!

I was in Orangeburg on a two day trip and was told that Tru by Hilton was a new hotel and decided to try it. The Front desk clerk was very nice and very accommodating. She gave me a Room on the floor that I requested. I was given complimentary water before going to my Room and explained everything that was going on in the lobby from the breakfast area to the pool table. There was a pool, there's a gym, ice machines and games in the lobby area. I was happy with my decision to stay there. When I got to my Room I was happy that the bathroom was very clean & I had enough towels, washcloths for myself and my husband. There was a refrigerator but no microwave. And there was room to hang my coat and my husband suits. One con that I do have is that there was no closet space or dressers. Other than that the mattress was comfortable, the pillows were awesome the air conditioner/heater worked fine. The TV was a nice size and there were channels that we could access that we couldn't normally access at a different hotel. Overall a wonderful stay and I am happy and will be staying there again.

This was our first time at a Hilton Tru. It is a very basic hotel in some ways. Good in other ways. No carpet, but that makes for easy cleaning. It was very clean. Rooms are small, but adequate. No pool, but not everyone needs a pool. No microwave, but there is a refrigerator. The lady at 7:00 check in was very nice, helpful, but the lady at checkout seemed preoccupied, even though no other customers. Parking lot was good, but the luggage carts were lacking. They were a new design, not a normal flat surface to place bags. The design was a triangle of bars with large space in between. If you had one oversized bag, it would stay on. But if you had an overnight bag, a small cooler, and a small piece of luggage, it was impossible to push without falling between the bars, or off the cart. It was someone’s idea of a modern improvement, but it just doesn’t work. The tv selection was much better than average, but required tech knowledge, not a normal remote. It is worth the effort to get the extras. There is a design flaw in the small rooms, that the knee high bed frames stick out past the mattress on all sides. Guess how easy it is to scrape your leg getting in or out of bed. Almost as easy as it is to continually bump the corners with your knees! There are pluses and minuses to the hotel. It is a far cry from a Hilton, or even a Hampton Inn, but it is clean and functional. Would I stay again? Undecided. I would have to weigh the great tv channel selection against the poorly designed pain inducing bed frame.

We stayed here last night on our way to NC. I highly recommend. It is very new, very clean, and is strict about it's COVID policies. You need to wear a mask inside, and the hotel is so clean and sanitized, that you feel very safe. Staff are very friendly. Rooms are so spic and span clean. Large Smart TV in the bedroom. Breakfast is served by and attendant. Body, wash, etc. is provided by a device on the shower wall. Very updated and modern furniture. Close to many restaurants. Would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here for 4 nights. Shortly after my arrival, my daughter discovered a brown substance on her duvet. This was reported to the front desk. They sent someone to change the linen (I requested both beds to be changed). We weren’t allowed to be in the room while the change was made. We returned to find that the linen was in fact not changed as the brown substance was still there. The manager made all kinds of excuses as to why we were subjected to dirty linen. Because of this I was very uncomfortable there and ended up buying supplies and cleaned the room myself. If not for this terrible experience, I would have been completely satisfied with this hotel. I especially like the fact that there is no carpet. I stayed in a 2 queen room and it was very spacious. The front desk staff is very pleasant and helpful, especially Elijah.
