Good stay, Fair rates, beautiful view from my room, like hot tub and swimming pool, like the free breakfast, nice bar, friendly staffs, closer to Washington State University, easy access to everything, beds comfortable, free WiFi, computer available at the front desk. I only wish the hot tub floor can be renovated.

Coug fans only! Great Hilton property. Close to campus for the games. Bar in the lobby, breakfast and great rooms. Staff was very helpful and friendly. The right place to stay if you are doing anything related to WSU.

Enjoyed this friendly, wazzu-themed hotel. The front desk staff, Amanda and Wendy, were very friendly and accommodating. Barb, the proprietor, stopped by to welcome us while we were looking at the collection of Chinook yearbooks in the lobby. The rooms and beds were comfortable and we enjoyed the meals and cocktails at the on-site restaurant. Definitely stay when in Pullman.

This is by far the best place to stay in Pullman!! It's been beautifully remodeled within the last couple of years. The owner and her family are typically either at the front desk or in the restaurant and make you feel welcome. The family as well as staff are quite warm and friendly. The chef has amazing nightly specials! We...

We stayed at the Hilltop Inn in Pullman, Washington, for 1-night in early Oct ($108). As the name implies, the inn is perched atop a hill overlooking Hwy 270 just west of downtown Pullman. It is a large, older 3-storey building that has been well maintained. Not quite an easy walk to town (it is on a hill, after all),...

The Hilltop is on Route 270 as you head downhill into downtown Pullman. The hotel has about 145 rooms and is dog friendly. Breakfast is included, which is comprised of pancakes, cereal, fruit scrambled eggs, yogurt and cereal. It is fine. The hotel is used by teams competing at WSU, officials for those competitions, and parents. The hotel is big...

Very nice accommodations at this hotel which has been serving travelers since before we attended Washington State University in 1964-68. Upon our nostalgic return to tour the campus it remains a friendly place to stay. The room was clean, everything worked as it should and complimentary breakfast was very tasty!

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,...
