My family and I enjoyed the state at the Hilton Garden Inn in Redding, CA and in Monterrey CA. Excellent hotel, friendliness staff. The Kiddos enjoyed the pool and spa, temp for both was excellent. I would recommend this chain of hotel to anyone traveling with children.

We stayed here for one night, on our road trip down Highway 1. Check in was fine and the room was okay. It backed onto a road which was quite noisy during the night. This is a hotel which is out of town, I fail to see the need to charge for car parking, we did have the breakfast before... More

For the price of the stay, the hotel was very average. Rooms are tired looking and if you are placed near the pool, you can hear every word in your room. My husband and I were placed on the first floor near the pool and we don't have children. Also, the room felt very humid - not good air quality/flow... More

The property is a ClubMed lookalike with the pool and hot tub. It seems to be catered to the young and active and those with young families. There were lots of kids and teenagers in the pool during my stay there. If you are looking for some peaceful time here, I guess that you will need to be mentally prepared.... More

This was my second time at this hotel, and unfortunately this time my expectations were not met. The room rate for the 4th of July weekend was high, so I decided to book the room using points that I had at that point in my Hilton account and the rest was charged to my Visa card. I really don’t know... More

The hotel is very nice and clean. The amenities are lovely. However, the rooms are pretty expensive and on top of that price you have to pay an additional $14 per night for parking. Breakfast is not complimentary either.

We appreciate your 4 star review and compliments on the hotel cleanliness and amenities. Yes, our guest room rates are at their highest during the summer months in the height of summer vacation season and peak demand. It may be confusing with Hilton's 12 different brands, with some of the brands like Hampton Inn and Embassy Suites offering a free... More

Excellent hotel if you are in the Monterey (or Carmel) area and don't want / need to be downtown. As such, you would be best served if you have a car. (Parking is fee based.)

Great hotel for families with kids. We stayed one night as a couple, however, I might come back with some of my grandchildren for a weekend. There is a swimming pool, hot tub and fire pit which the kids who where there enjoyed.
