Fridge was going on and off all night with too much noise, enough to wake you up abruptly from sleep when it came on. We were too tired to call in the middle of the night to move to another room. Hopefully that was just specific to that room. Location is excellent. Clean. Front desk should have done more to... More

Good location, within walking distance to the wharf, Dennis the Menace park, cannery row, monterey aquarium and Alvarado Street (downtown). The front desk was extremely helpful and very customer service oriented. They gave excellent recommendations for off-site dining and entertainment. They were very accommodating with my late check-out request and maps of the area. They even gave me multiple recommendations... More

Room was very good, even though would recommend to not choose a "Pool view" room since noise level can get high and windows are not insulating the noise. Hotel is an older HGI facility, but well maintained. Depending where your room is located it will take some walking on long floors before reaching the lobby. Location is not too bad,... More

Good room, quiet and clean with a balcony. Staff was professional and helpful. Five or so minute drive to downtown Monterey, which is bearable if you plan on spending most time out and about. Not within walking distance to food options, although breakfast and dinner on site. All in all it was fine...although the same price can be found at... More

Stayed here last month during a car show and found the location to need a car to get anywhere. No view and if you are close to the pool it can be a bit loud during the morning/day. Very clean and staff was helpful. The underground parking is cut up strangely and several of the spots are very tight. Nice... More

We travel a lot and hands down this is the nicest HGI we have ever been to. The property is really beautiful and the building itself has great sound insulation, no flushing toilet sounds or doors slamming here. What really made the stay is the amazing breakfast staff!

I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn recently for two nights and booked it through a third party vendor. The confirmation booking highlighted clearly that both WiFi and parking were included in the fee. It turned out that parking was not included and the manner that I was advised of this was completely unacceptable. The employee was extremely rude and... More
