Stayed for two nights, easy access off the freeway and within walking distance of a number of places to eat. Checkin was ok, however, parking maybe tight at busy times as there are not too many spaces. The hotel appeared really quiet during our stay. The rooms are large and appear to have been refurbished in the new style and furnishings, the room had a safe which is always a plus. It’s a year or so since I last stayed in a Hampton and I must say they have cut them to the bone. The beds remain comfortable, with decent linen and the bath towels are good too. It’s comfortable and ok for a couple of nights, however, there are no frills. The coffee in the room was of a lower quality too. The room and bathroom were very clean and remiss of and furnishing damage. The breakfast filled a space, however, again it was a basic offering. What wasn’t basic was the price, for what you get it’s a fairly high price. Check out left a lot to be desired also, with no interest into our stay.

Hotel's Favorite
We used this hotel as a base for driving around and hiking in Big Sur and it was a great base for doing just that. The hotel is very close to Highway 1 so it was very easy to start our trips each day. Also nice that there are lots of restaurants and food options in Monterey close to the hotel for dinner options at night after a long day of sight seeing and hiking. Staff are helpful and welcoming. The room was clean and spacious. Breakfast was also fresh and reliable. We did not have to pay extra for parking and was always able to find a parking spot at the end of the day.

This hotel has the worst beds that I have ever slept on. We literally had to leave a night early because the thought of another night of tossing and turning and waking up to an excruciating backache was unbearable. This is too bad because the location is great, the staff friendly and helpful and breakfast is great! The waffles are tasty!

We wanted to express our gratitude and tell we thank you for staying with us recently. Unfortunate to hear you checked out early because you were unable to get a good night's rest on our beds. We hope you continue staying at our Hitlon locations. Glad you enjoyed breakfast and location as well.

The beds were the worst I’ve ever slept in at a hotel. They were very hard and springy. The only good benefit at this hotel was the free parking and the good proximity to the downtown Monterey area. I won’t be staying here again

I was in town for a Housing Summit at the Asilomar Conference Center. Not knowing the area at all, I had to rely on reviews. I chose the Hampton Inn as it was close by and reasonably priced. As with all Hampton Inn, breakfast is provided and the coffee is always hot and delicious. I could not believe how big the rooms were and the bed was extremely comfortable. My colleague and I talked about it the next morning as we slept the best we had in a long time. Parking is easy and the hotel is located right along a paved trail for easy walking if you want to take a jaunt downtown. I would highly recommend!

I was on the fence about posting a negative review in a pandemic/post pandemic time since all service oriented businesses are suffering, but the hotel has ignored my formal complaints through Hilton, even after Hilton's customer service emailed me twice saying the hotel will be in contact with you... they simply don't care. This has got to be the worst experience I've ever had with a hotel. Booked the room months in advance and I am a gold honors member... The day of our arrival, I get an email saying my card on my Honors app is expired and needed to be updated by either calling or updating it online.. This was around 11am, so at 11:30am, I updated the card online through my Honors app and felt everything was fine after that. This was a two night stay, a family road trip, six driving hours from home. We arrived in Monterey around 8:30pm and the kids were hungry, stopped down the street from the hotel to eat before checking in. While dining, I see another email from the hotel sent at 4pm, saying if they don't hear from me by 5pm, they are going to cancel the reservation. Of course I wasn't checking my emails while driving 6 hours.... So I called the hotel around 9:00pm from the restaurant and the agent who was not apologetic at all, said, "we are sold out and it's your fault that we had to cancel your reservation". I was in total disbelief of what I was hearing and of course, all hotels in the area, even non-Hilton properties were sold out except for the Embassy Suites around the corner from this Hampton, selling for $500 a night x 2 nights compared to the $100 that I would have spent at the Hampton. So instead of driving another 35 miles away to the closest hotel that had availability, I ended up spending a lot more and luckily I had around 120,000 honors points saved to bring the Embassy rate down to about $150 a night. Family trip was almost ruined. Do yourself a favor and stay at the Embassy Suites... It ended up being a better hotel and experience anyway.... My family and I are very thankful the Embassy still had a few rooms left. I'm sure the staff will ignore this review as well but I'm hoping it will help other travelers in the future. Hampton Inn Monterey management and owners, shame on you, I hope you were able to double or at least triple the revenue from the one room by replacing my lower rate with a higher one that night.

I am very sorry that you did not receive a response to your complaint. This was due to an internal miscommunication on the part of our property, and I apologize that you were not contacted as a result. I am grateful to have the opportunity to apologize here and now for your extremely disappointing experience. I am also happy to read that you enjoyed your stay at the Embassy Suites with your family -- they are a lovely property, and I am glad to know that you were able to find a room there. There is nothing I can say that will make up for the cancellation of your reservation and the resulting hardship for you and your family. It is regrettable that updating payment information through Hilton does not update the payment information at the property level, which is what resulted in your reservation's cancellation after our attempts to contact you. I would also like to apologize for any lack of explanation or rudeness on the part of our front desk staff. I understand that you will not be booking again at our property due to your negative experience, but I hope that you and your family are able to continue to enjoy trips to the area.

No microwave in rooms, no laundry facilities of any type and a business center without a computer?????? Parking very difficult unless a diamond member, (good luck at new customers Hilton). Stayed in a double queen, large spacious room, with one chair, DOUBLE QUEEN???? Yes, 70 year olds love to sit on the two plastic ottomans under the counter. Room was exceptionally clean, staff were superb, especially apologizing for lack of amenities. Breakfast was pretty good. Don't stay at Hiltons often but was on trip with a diamond member and he was surprised also at lack of quality of amenities. Oh forgot - good location to freeways, and some fast food, just try to avoid all the homeless and panhandlers living adjacent at the lake.

Ishanti at check-in was very kind, professional, and very attentive. She gave me two free bottled waters for being a diamond member. Room was very clean and quiet. Breakfast was filling with plenty of fresh fruit. Free parking. Hotel is very secure with access limited to guests only.

I had to wait for 15 minutes for someone to show up at the front desk to check in. The phone was ringing off the hook and no one was around. When he finally showed up he didn't acknowledge my Diamond status. There was no one to help with bags so I had to get a bell cart myself and I forgot my 2 waters at the front desk. I went back down a few hours later and a different gentlemen told me I already got them so he wouldn't give me more water. I explained what happened and he said he knew I got my waters because the other agent told him! The room was dirty and there were a ton of spiders, spider eggs and cobwebs by the light outside our window. The air conditioning was musty and so loud we couldn't sleep with it on. Breakfast on the complimentary buffet was tasteless. Location was bad. The only positive was free parking. The price was very high for a hotel of this quality. Days Inn in Monterey looks much nicer and a better location. I don't recommend staying here.

Hotel sparkling clean and new looking! Slept well which is normally difficult for me. I was handed 4 bags of chips and 4 waters for being a diamond member. Breakfast was solid compared to most continental buffets. 3 Diamond member parking spots a nice touch!
