This was a nice place to stay on our California coastal trip for the Monterrey stop. Good pool and great gym facility. The gym overlooked the pool and had a variety of equipment and weights. The bed was comfortable and the room clean. The staff was friendly.

My family and I stayed at this Hotel one night during our California vacation. Our room was clean and our bed was comfortable. The Hotel had a restaurant connected to it, which was very convenient. The waiting staff at the restaurant was extremely nice and the food was good.

I wanted to revisit Fort Ord during our road trip and stay in Monterey. I was here in 1968-69 and of course the Town has really changed. We arrived here on June 14, 2015 for one night. Check in was easy and the room with two beds was clean. This location has an elevator outside to assist your entry if... More

The hotel was sold out, so it was packed. There was a line at check-in. Extra staff came up and helped. They had 4 people helping instead of the usual 1 or 2. Our room was in a building away from Highway 1, which was a big relief. Room was clean, staff was nice. Will repeat. The room size is... More

Room was horrible, balcony / patio reminded me of the visit the day before to Alcatraz- put me off the hotel straight away. Had food in the restaurant- which was ok. Getting drinks with meal was a nightmare as no bar in the restaurant- the waiter has to run across the road to the bar- and they seemed to be... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It was our first time in Monterey, and the location turned out to be quite convenient to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the Wharf, Cannery Row, 17 Mile Drive, and one of our destinations Monterey Bay Kayaks, as well as the highway for a trip to Capitola. Yes, the property is dated, particularly... More

We had some very noisy teenagers surrounding us, but the staff had it handled the second time we called. Very friendly breakfast staff, including the chefs. Nice and clean and located in a quiet neighborhood about a 15 min. walk to Fisherman's Wharf. Lovely bartender and desk staff. Clean room. They stuck to their 10 p.m. pool closure time, which...

Great value and convenience to two premier destinations. Hotel staff was attentive and the room was clean although a bit dated. Only real complaint was drinking water and beverages from the paper cups in the room which is not up to Hilton standards. Otherwise all else was very good and we would stay again if in the area.

We appreciate you taking the time to review HGI Monterey and for acknowledging that both Monterey and Carmel are two premier destinations! We agree!! Thanks for the compliments about the attentive staff and clean room, which I will pass along internally. All the guest rooms were renovated in May, 2013 and that refresh included new 42" Hi Def TV's, which... More

The room we had was clean and well stocked with everything needed for your comfort. There is a 7 foot 4 inch underground parking big enough for most SUV's or small van. Plenty of other parking as well. They have a restaurant right there and the food was very good. I recommend the breakfast deal as it is worth the... More

We appreciate your 5 star review and compliments about our restaurant food! In addition to the underground parking we also have plenty of exterior parking if vehicles are taller than 7 feet 4 inches. We invite you to return again soon! Especially as gets hotter in Arizona, it remains cool along the central coast and the Monterey Peninsula! More
