Restful Seaview Escape

We were passing through the Seaside-Monterey area and booked this property at the last minute. The staff was very gracious. Our room over-looked the Pacific, close enough that we could hear the crashing of waves. The room was of a generous size and exceptionally quiet. The bed was comfortable and we both woke rested and refreshed. The balcony was a lovely surprise and we enjoyed our morning coffee there while watching the sea birds. We would highly recommend this property!

The Fish Hopper is on Cannery Row - what a beautiful meal! Highly recommend the grilled artichokes and the halibut was amazing! My husband said that the scallops were the best he has had.

More than pleased

Loved our room on the 12th floor. We appreciated the happy hour from 5:30-7:30 pm and the included breakfast in the morning. Staff was also accommodating, and this may have been the best Embassy Suites we stayed in.

Very beautiful hotel with outstanding staff.

The air condition and ventilation in room 504 was not working properly. The room was musty which made it difficult to sleep. The manager was very accommodating and moved us to another room for our next night. Room was very nice. The hotel offered a very nice cocktail / appetizer hour in the evening and a very delicious made to order breakfast in the morning. I would recommend this hotel to others, but check out the room first.

Standard Embassy Suites

This is a very standard Embassy Suites - which is not bad! The two room suite set up is good for longer stays and rooms are comfortable. This is the first hotel in a long time where internet access is not free - and speed is not quick for the pay for use service. Location is some distance from Monterey main attractions but easily accessible.

OK

Drinks and food included is always good. I think they try to give what they can on the cheap. Overall it was ok.

A little dissapointed for the price

Great location, nice hotel, but disappointed for the price. The T.V. had problems, a repairman came after the phone rang about 30 times. He said the wires are bad, but just giggle them and it will work. The lamp didn't work. The elevator was operating slowly, I thought it was going to breakdown. Shower curtain was too small, bathroom flooded when shower is used. NOT WHAT I EXPECTED
