“Hyatt "Regency" - really?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

My husband and I travel for pleasure a lot and stay in upscale / 5-star hotels.
This property is OLD, and Hyatt has tried to "polish" it up.
The hotel is comprised of many 3 story buildings of hotel rooms - very much like a MOTEL.
You drive and park in front of your building.
The hotel is located right on the Old Del Monte Golf Course, so it's very convenient if you plan to play golf there.
We were lucky enough to get one of the FEW balcony rooms. I saw the standard room w/out balcony, and there would have been no way I could have stayed in the room.
The balcony was probably only 5' x 4', at most, but it did provide a nice place to sit and watch the golfers putt and tee off.
The rooms have been cheaply modernized.
The bed linens slipped off the mattress (and I don't move around when I sleep), so when I woke up the sheet was un-tucked and the mattress was peeking through. Old and small pillows. Not a comfortable bed. Had three restless nights.
The bathroom - argh... a tub/shower with a SHOWER CURTAIN (yuck - gross).
They only provide BAR SOAP - no shower gel.
Get with the program Hyatt Regency. Glass showers and shower gel are a must.
There are not many new / modern hotels in Monterey, so if you are staying on points, then go for it.
We did a combo of points / pay. I paid $399 for one night and $199 for the other (Labor Day weekdend). $399 was a JOKE.
Next time I'm in the area, I would probably just stay at Pacific Grove Inn or splurge for The Lodge at Pebble Beach.

Room Tip: Building close to lobby Diamond lounge is in building #5

Not a high-rise hotel in the city but more of a "retreat" type facility with multiple buildings spread out among the trees. No air conditioning so have to leave windows open (and curtains if you want air flow) and keep the ceiling fan running. Room faced the highway which is very close so traffic noise was constant. Bathroom was beautiful and clean but not very functional with no counter space for curling irons, etc. Furnishings are average and utilitarian.

Room Tip: Try to get a room where the windows open away from the highway to help with the noise.

The room was older but clean and in good repair. The bathroom had recently been refreshed with new fixtures which were nice. It was close enough to Monterey and to some local hikes and state parks to make it work.

My family planned a week long adventure up the coast and this hotel ended up being a last minute decision during our trip. We were given room #2032 that had a huge wrap around balcony. We were able to store our bikes in the room and ride each day to the Monterey Bay bike trail just down the street. We also took a taxi to town both nights and it cost us $12 each way. Overall a nice hotel that was an EXCELLENT value. It is true that the hotel doesn't have A/C, but we simply slept with the doors open and fan on each night.

Room Tip: Choose room 2032 if you can!!

What a dump!!! Might as well be a motel. NO AIR CONDITIONING and the room was 90 degrees when we checked in. Hotel staff was not apologetic at all about the issue. The "motel" is a collection of small buildings with outside corridors and the noise from the highway is extremely loud. As a Hyatt residence club member, I am highly embarrassed to have this part of Hyatt properties. Be warned! We will NEVER stay here again.

This hotel was the second stop on our road trip, we spent 2 nights here. The rooms were modern and well equipped. The resort had good facilities, golf, table tennis, swimming pool etc. we had a large room with a balcony and well equipped bathroom. There is a chargeable resort fee but it was not overly expensive, we took a cab into the local night life area of Cannery row it cost about 15 dollars. All staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the concierge knew her stuff and was great with tips and advice. We loved this area and will go back.
