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 called to reserve an ocean view suite and was promised one in exchange for booking a very expensive room at nearly $1,300/night, inclusive of taxes/fees. Upon check-in, I again was assured of an ocean view room. I just arrived and am extremely disappointed: one window faces the rooftop with a view of AC units and the small corner balcony faces a highway of vehicles. Past those vehicles, beyond the trees and over the hillside is the ocean, which is NOT visible from the 3rd floor suite I was given. So, approx. $1,300/night to look at AC units and cars. What upsets me is the sheer level of dishonesty here: don’t sell it as an ocean view suite and don’t promise the customer an ocean view if it’s not one. Read less

If I could only score this hotel zero. Very filthy will never come back to very dirty hotel. Big hotel but very dirty worst hotel I’ve ever been. Was not able to relax and enjoy our stay, not worth it!!!

This hotel is older and needs some work. Worse than that are the exceptionally high rates they charge for an older hotel that isn’t on the water. These are double beds instead of queen size which is a big difference for two adults.

As prices have soared, the quality and extent of the services, including the quality and variety of food at the breakfast, have declined. The result of this combination is that this hotel no longer provides good value for the money.

Hotel room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Complimentary reception and breakfast was very good. Room service was excellent and the food was very good. Overall hotel service was excellent. I will definitely be staying again on my next trip.
