From the moment we walked in we were "greeted" with snooty employees more intent on getting credit card information and being snippy and condescending than making us feel like welcome guests. The man at the front desk was very rude to my husband while demanding that he HAD to have a credit card with my son's name on it for... More

Attended a conference at NPS. This was within walking distance of the venue, so that made it ideal for my purposes. Location, location, location. Room had a nice balcony and was clean. However, just a 'standard' hotel room. I prefer to stay at suite hotels with a little more room. Parking was underground. Parking was a little tight and limited.... More

This is an updated, well-kept older hotel. While it didn't impact my stay, be aware the exterior parking is small but they have an underground parking area. The room was a nice size with a comfortable bed. You have to pay for breakfast. There is a nice pool/outdoor area on the property.

Stayed in 2 Queen Bed room. Cosy but what can you expect with 4 people in a room?! It's a Hilton Garden Inn so I manage my expectations. A/c was efficient and quiet. Lobby area large with cookies and log fire. Bathroom reasonably good though shower fixture a bit wobbly. At more than $300 for the lodging alone (and this... More

We arrived in Monterey after a terrible time with car hire co Dollar which made 3 hours late leaving San Francisco and we missed a trip we'd planned on the way down so arriving at this hotel we felt a bit deflated, stressed and exhausted. Our welcome was uplifting and Pauline made us feel so welcome and offered us cookies... More

One of the best customer service that we received at check-in from Pauline and housekeeping Crystal Hernandez. Some 5-star hotels can't come close. Hotel close to everything. Pool area was clean. Beds are comfortable.

After a long day driving from Yosemite we arrived at 4 pm on the nail and we're told both our rooms weren't ready and wouldn't be until 5.30 pm. We weren't very happy as we just wanted to freshen up and lie down I even thought 4 pm was on the late side for check in...the receptionist did offer us... More

We visited Monterey last weekend on our drive from San Francisco to LA. We spent two days at the Hilton Garden Inn. Found the hotel to be very nice, but the one front desk man was less than friendly. I wish I knew his name. We arrived about 4:45 on Saturday, and hotel was extremely busy. Three desk agents were... More

Enjoyed the one night stay here. It was a comfortable place with great rooms and a nice restaurant where we had breakfast. Loved the outdoor pool which is heated salt water and Jacuzzi. The Gas fireplace in the pool area was charming and inviting for us to chill out and reminisce with our friends our trip to the area.

Thank you for posting your 5 star review. We love achieving this level of satisfaction and experience. Many people don't realize that our Hilton Garden Inn is much larger and different than the typical Garden Inn around the US. We were once a Hilton before we rebranded to Hilton Garden Inn but the Hotel is almost the same from amenities... More
