Reviewed 30 May 2014

We stayed in this hotel as a bit of a family joke but it was fantastic, pricey but worth it!! the pool and outdoor spa were delicious after a long day on the motorbike. The bathroom had everything I wanted and the products available for showering were lovely not overly fragrant

This hotel was nice and I stayed here for 4 nights. I was in Monterey for work and this hotel was priced right. The only thing is this hotel isn't in the closest location to everything that is in downtown Monterey. If you're going to Monterey for vacation I suggest that you stay somewhere closer to Cannery Row where you can walk to everything.

If you have a car, this isn't so bad though, it's just a 5-8 minute drive into town.

The rooms are comfortable and each room has a Keurig which is great!

Room Tip: The parking structure is on the bottom floor and you have to take external stairs or the elevator up...

Thank you for writing about your recent May stay at our Hotel. As you noted we are not located downtown however as some reviewers have responded this can sometimes be a positive as we are almost a getaway from the hustle and bustle of downtown or Cannery Row and typically lower priced. We allow travelers convenient access to HWY 1 which is only 5 minutes to so many top area attractions such as Carmel, Big Sur, Pebble Beach and Laguna Seca. Thank you again for the nice review and we look forward to hosting your next stay.

We stayed at the hotel for 1 night before starting the Great Pacific Highway drive on the Big Sur. The Hotel was clean, the rooms were spacious and the staff very helpful. We didn't eat at the hotel but did use the gym which was adequate.

The staff were courteous and provided the information requested. The room was clean and comfortable. Although it is somewhat separated from downtown Monterey, it is conveniently located if you have a car. Without a vehicle it is about a 15-20 minute walk to amenities although there is a Monterey bus stop nearby.

Let's get this out of the way first: The Hilton Garden Inn at Monterey California is not a bad place to stay. It has everything you expect from a hotel and none of those things are bad. The rooms are adequate, the pool, gym and other amenities are adequate and so on. I give the management credit for doing the best they can with what they got.

But, its problem is that it is located in a beach town not anywhere near the beach, or anything else interesting for that matter. The only thing you can see from this place is roads, busy roads, with lots of cars zooming here and there to more interesting places that you aren't at.

I didn't properly vet this out before my trip and I realized I could have stayed at other places that were better located. Even if I didn't have an ocean view at those other places, I could at least get to Fisherman's Warf or Cannery Row easier. From this Hilton, I had to take time to drive into town to see those places.

So, even though this place was decent looking (it actually had a 1970s pseudo-Polynesian feel to it) and had decent food, decent parking, decent... everything, NOTHING stood out. I might have even given this place four stars had it been in Podunk U.S.A. I might have. But this is Monterey for heaven's sake!

So, if you are in Monterey CA for the first time, there are other places to stay just because of where this place is located. Like in all real estate, the three key vital things are: location, location and location.

The Hilton Garden Inn Monterey might have just as well been located in Podunk U.S.A.

Room Tip: If you must stay here, try to get a room that is "inside" the loop. The rooms are in one b...

Thank you for your recent review and for providing valuable insight regarding your May stay. We want to provide a great value at our Hotel and certainly a great pre-arrival experience. We have recently posted several new pictures on-line with hopefully accurate details regarding our Hotel. Some trip advisors review that our Hotel is convenient to area attractions but unfortunately we do not sit on the ocean (about 4-6 blocks away.) We will certainly look at new ways to improve our Guest Experience in the future so as to provide even better value for your next stays.

Stayed for one night on drive down highway 1. The male receptionist was lovely very helpful. We had dinner in restaurant which was an early bird deal which was excellent. The room was lovely nice and clean and well equipped. Good nights sleep in comfortable bed. Breakfast was very good in morning. Only downside was when we left in morning young guy on reception when I checked out could hardly manage a word no thank you for staying with us or have a nice day, which was a shame as the older guy who checked us in was charming.
