Had a week of business throughout Monterey, and Salinas Valley. I stayed a several deferent properties during trip. Hilton Garden Inn was the most comfortable. It was well maintained, very clean and good service. It's a little farther than many Monterey hotels from downtown and Cannery Row, but still a short drive. Nice pool area and well maintained grounds. The... More

Stayed 2 nights, for business good location as just off Highway 1. If visiting for pleasure approximately 3 miles walk. Hotel very clean and nice. Food good. Would I stay again? Unsure, even though hotel excellent would prefer to be nearer the centre of Monterey.

We were on a 2 week road trip through California, and stayed one night at this hotel, so didn't have time to use the pool (which looked nice). We'd booked 2 rooms, one of them being a Junior Suite. It was a large room, but it was dark with just a few items of furniture so felt very empty. The... More

Hotel very average and pedestrian, nothing special. Very slow to check-in hotel and checking out our bill was wrong. Pool area music was blasting way too loud. Our room was next to a road so it was noisy.

We have stayed here twice. The front desk staff is friendly and accommodating. I recommend getting the breakfast included if you don't have Diamond or Gold with Hilton. You get eggs Benedict with it! The room are clean. We had rooms facing the pool and this time we had a room with a sun deck! So ask for that. The... More

I spent one night here on my bike ride to LA and was very happy with the hotel. I was upgraded to a suite with a deck and got to enjoy the sun for a bit. The hotel was about a 10 minute walk to the water, which worked well for me. I thought this was a good base to... More

This is an older HGI for sure. It's been very well maintained. Check in experience was OK, people seemed efficient enough and well-trained. The pool area is nice, they have bartender service in the afternoon. Really has a resort feel about it. Saw one guy get into a discussion with them on the $10/day parking charge he thought had been... More

Rooms not worth the price. Noisy. Breakfast is buffet style & short order combined, but you place your order to the cook. Very chaotic. Restaurant cannot accommodate the volume of hotel guests...line forms out the door for a table. Stayed 2 nights, didn't use any other hotel amenities. Won't stay there again.
