This hotel is located in a very strange place. It is at the very end of a street that has a large shopping center. To get to it you have to go all the way behing the shopping center and then its not real clear where the reception office is located. Once we found that, our room wasn't ready even... More

The complimentary manager's reception with free drinks and breakfast with made to order omelettes make the room a better value than it may appear. The suite layout of the room also gives you plenty of room to spread out and a place for the kids to sleep that is not your bed. The problem with this property is that the... More

We stayed here for 4 nights from October 19 through October 23, arriving on a Saturday late afternoon. The first question I asked was whether the elevators were working and they responded affirmatively. I should point out that the last full day, one of the front elevators was not working. Based on some of the negative reviews, I was pleasantly... More

My family and I recently stayed at the Embassy Suites. We had stayed here 6 years before and it was great. It has gone downhill greatly. The carpeting needs replacing, the elevators get stuck on floors, the stairwells were dirty. We definitely won't stay here again.

We stayed at the ESH last weekend as part of a wedding block. Room rates were GREAT!! Hotel was clean. Rooms were quiet with the help of the suite part being by the door. Or it could have been the A/C blowing all night, so I couldn't hear anything else. Good beds. Good selection of pillows. Breakfast was good -... More

Recently stayed here for 2 nights. As other reviewers have mentioned, this hotel looks somewhat tired and is in need of an update. The rooms are standard ES. Excellent breakfast and Manager's Reception. Location is great if you are looking to go to Monterey/Carmel. If I was not a Hilton Honors member and loyal to ES, I may look elsewhere... More

We enjoyed our 7 nights stay at the Embassy Suites. The staff was friendly and helpful. Katie at the front desk was personable, and fabulous in locating the most quiet room on the 12 floor. The room was clean, and the daily maid service was efficient. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast and free drinks. I would have given it a... More

Family and I stayed at the hotel for two days and had a wonderful experience. Very good location for easy access to many tourist attractions. Many very good restaurants in reasonable driving distance. Staff was very accommodating.

We've stayed in Embassy Suites for years, and almost without exception we enjoy our stays, and consider nights there to be special. Our experience at the Embassy Suites in Monterey was an exception. This high-rise property features 12 floors overlooking the Pacific, and the bay, about two blocks away from Highway 1. The lobby is upscale and well done, including... More
