“A different Garden Inn”
Reviewed 8 September 2012

This Garden Inn does not follow the usual layout of the Hilton series which we found a pleasant surprise. The workout facility and pool area were outstanding and far better than at most Garden Inns. The room keys were not programmed for the entire length of our stay which caused what seems like the inevitable trek back to the lobby to get the keys reprogrammed. The room was a bit cramped for two queen beds (even with only two people) but was clean and functional. The construction is not quite as sound proof as many I have been in, but we were not disturbed by noise despite the hotel being sold out. Two attributes stand out for this hotel. One is a relatively convenient location to downtown combined with easy access to Hwy 1. Yes, you can stay right downtown (closer) but when you add up the higher room rate, the parking and internet access, you will pay significantly more to be downtown without any other tangible benefit. The drive between downtown and the hotel is short and easy. A Trader Joes and Peets Coffee are en route for grabbing breakfast items for the in-room fridge or some good coffee. A major shopping center is a short drive away. The price, given the quality of the facilities, the location, and factoring in free parking and free internet access made it a good value for staying in this area.

Room Tip: We stayed in the back facing away from the pool and found this arrangement to be relatively quiet.

Thank you for your thorough 4 star review. We are different than newer HGI's having been built prior to the HGI concept and having a transformational renovation a few years ago being rebranded as an HGI. The pool area with cabanas, whirlpool and fire pit along with the exceptional fitness center were part of that renovation. Sorry that you had room key problems but glad that you fully enjoyed your stay in Monterey and at HGI.

If slamming doors and cars roaring up the street are your idea of comfort, this place is for you. Blaring tvs and rude people next door are also available if you are a rewards member like me.
The beds are nice. The cookies in the lobby are good too.

Stayed at this lovely Hilton on Aug. 28 and 29th. My husband and I traveling across country and are taking the opportunity to add up our honors points. This particular Hilton was beautiful and the location was fantastic. Very close to their Fisherman's wharf. I want to also bring note to the excellent service at check in. Pauline, a lovely woman who was at the front desk, was very gracious and pleasant. Our room was nootropic ready since we had arrived a bit early. We were starving and she recommended a restaurant and also gave us a card for a free appetizer. By the time we had lunch, our room was ready. This particular Hilton did not charge for parking, which was a plus. Some of them do and we feel that policy should change from corporate office.

Breakfast is not included and their buffet and made to order breakfast is very good.
This resort was lovely and comfortable and I definitely would stay again!

We appreciate your "Good Hotel But Too Far From Town" review. Although we are less than a mile to downtown Monterey it can seem like a long way. But...we are only 5 minutes to Carmel! It was good to hear that you liked our comfortable beds and apologize for you having a noisy refrigerator. Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with HGI Monterey.
