We stayed at the Embassy Suites on the 23rd of April on our drive up the coast to San Francisco, as part of a 22 day trip to Las Vegas/ LA/ SF.
We had booked on a special offer via TravelZoo for $99/ night plus tax and were given room 810 on the 8th floor facing the sea. For some reason we didn't take pictures of this room but it was perfectly acceptable, with a separate bedroom and sitting area and an ok sized bathroom. We had a balcony that faced over the reservoir in front of the hotel and onto the sea beyond which was very nice.
The room was clean enough (with the notable exception of a few long black hairs - eek on the bedspread, which was quickly thrown on the floor). It had a little dinning area and the fridge was very handy.
There isn't much to do at night and as we were exhausted we decided after our jaunt around the 17 mile drive in Carmel (10 mins away) we would come back and go to the (free) managers reception then the indoor pool. The managers reception was in the atrium area with free drinks of any kind and fresh popcorn and 2 other kinds of snacky things. It's held between 5.30 - 7.30 each night and a big plus. The pool was a good size, with a nice hot tub and sauna - and although it had a changing room, it only had 1 private area/ toilet and the lockers had no locks on them - so we had to take our stuff through to the pool with us. No big hassle just a little niggle.
There was also a (free) business centre, with 2 computers with internet access, which was got onto both times we tried, which for a hotel this side is pretty good.
The (free) breakfast is also in the atrium and was very nice, the usual bacon/ pancakes/ eggs etc and an omelet station. It set us up for the drive to SF.
Overall a nice hotel, not much around it but you've not got more than 10/ 15 mins to Carmel/ Monterey. I would stay here again.
