Embassy Suites by Hilton Monterey Bay Seaside

Monterey, California Coast

The hotel

It's nice to be able to relax in the spacious comfort of your two-room suite, but the complimentary hot breakfast buffet and made-to-order omelette station will help get you out and set up for the day. At the Embassy Suites by Hilton Monterey Bay Seaside, you are a couple of blocks from the beach and just two miles north of Downtown Monterey. There are lots of attractions and activities along the Bay too, such as the Monterey Bay Aquarium or Steinbeck Museum, or head out in the car for 20 minutes or so for a bit of hiking, winery action or spa treats. The hotel’s 2-hour evening reception with complimentary cocktails and snacks is a great way to kick-off your evening. The Silver Tide Bar & Grill is in the atrium too, so why not drop in afterwards for some local California cuisine?

I booked 1 night at the 2 Room Suite-1 King Bed-all Bay View to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. A few days before my arrival I contacted the hotel asking if they could offer something to him and they prompt said "yes". For my surprise, a few hours before my arrival I got a text message from the hotel saying they would not offer anything. It was so disappointing the lack of consideration! I was already in my way to Monterey and I didn't have time to prepare anything by myself. Additionally, the description of the room says it has "all bay view" but when I got in the room I could barely see the ocean. The location is horrible, very noisy street and the view is really bad. I paid so much for nothing! Also the bathroom was not well cleaned and the A/C didn't work properly. They charge you $15 dollars/night for parking and they don't even offer valet service you have to park by yourself. I feel like I threw my money in the trash. Don't recommend this place at all!

Great stay. Love the layout of the rooms and the complimentary breakfast was delicious and high quality food. The staff was very helpful and responded quickly to any needs. Also enjoyed walking around the lake.

Recently completed a 5 night stay at this property. The staff is what makes this place excel. Great customer service. Breakfast is plentiful and the eating area is always clean Location is excellent easy on and off the highway, plenty of things to do and see. Many good options nearby to eat. The not so good. Hotel is dated. Furniture old and worn. Water pressure sucks in the shower and takes forever to warm up. Lighting in the room is dim. Caulking full of mildew For the price I paid I could have found something better. If these little things can be corrected I’d consider staying here again. Read less

Wonderful place to stay -- excellent breakfast & evening receptions. Great place to play cards; eat; drink; and be merry. The Staff is outstanding -- we had a medical emergency and everyone saw to our needs -- directed 911 personnel to room and saw to our needs. I have never stayed in such a caring facility Love you guys!
