I stayed at the Monterey Hilton Garden Inn on a trip from San Francisco to Southern California. The hotel somehow made up for the chilly and foggy wheather during my stay. Nice lobby, friendly staff @ check in. My room was spacious and had a large balcony. What I did not like were the charges for using the parking lot,... More

Clean rooms, comfortable bed. The rooms in the back overlook a small road. It is not that busy but when a car or truck goes by it is ten feet from you. No sliding glass door is going to keep that sound from waking you up. The buffet breakfast was not worthwhile.

We travelled up from Santa Barbara and stayed in this hotel for one night. The staff were very helpful. The room was comfortable and clean, furniture was a bit dated. Swimming pool area was lovely but no bar or service was available when we went down in the afternoon. The hotel had coin launderette which was very helpful. I had... More

The hotel was clean and staff was very friendly. It is a little tucked away, so I'm glad we had a car to go out and about, although it is only a 5 min drive to the pier. From other hotels in the area, this seemed liked a great deal. I would stay here again versus staying in a hotel... More

Nice pool and gym - fast WI-FI. Cookies in afternoon - all decent except location is away from town and happening areas. Nevertheless a pleasing stay with good breakfast which is worth having rather than driving into town.

Hotel was ok. Clean, good gym and not far to drive into town. Not much of a reason to stick around there but why would you with Monterey to go see. Paying for parking was odd. Gym overlooked pool and had a good selection of weights and cardio. Room size was small. Staff at front desk was nice but never... More

When I entered the lobby, my first impression is the ceiling is so low which I can touch in. It could be the architecture feature like the 50' modern Frank Lloyd Wright design. The pool and Jacuzzi is decent and heat well. They even have a nice fireplace and seating at the pool area which is nice. I have seen... More

My family and I really enjoyed the Hilton Garden Inn. At all levels we enjoyed our stay. Just didn’t like the noisy guest swimming in the pool at 9:30 pm – 10 pm, which is allowed. Just wish they were self-aware that other guests were trying to enjoy and rest for the evening. Just be aware that all of the... More

We appreciate your 5 star review and that you will stay with us again the next time you vacation in Monterey! We agree that it would be ideal if guests could self regulate the noise they create both early mornings and in the evenings and be more sensitive to "other guests" experiences. More

Overall, I had a great stay here. I was pleased to receive an upgrade to a much larger room with a balcony overlooking the pool area as a Hilton Diamond member. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is pretty good as you can easily walk to downtown. The format of this hotel is very different from any... More

Visited here for one night as part of our three week honeymoon. Our travel agent had booked it and we thought it mAy be quite a standard 'chain' hotel. How wrong were we! It was a beautiful hotel with an amazing outside pool area and jacuzzi. It had a seating area with a fire- such a lovely feel to it.... More
