The personal on the front desk were very helpful.

air conditioning in room did not cool. The free breakfast is a crowd battle. This facility is not set up for the crowds that they have. the staff was not kind and unwilling to help.

The location is pretty great. The suite we had was deluxe and came with free snacks and drinks. The lobby and room were very clean. The manager’s special was nice with a variety of free drinks to choose from at the bar. The snacks were basic, such as carrots, celery, ranch, chips, salsa, and popcorn, but they did the trick. Unfortunately, the pool is way too small, but on the flip side, at least in the late evening there are 2 hours of pool time that are designated adults only! Also, next door is In n’ Out Burger for a quick bite.

$14 car parking is just too much for here in Monterey!

Our room had an unpleasant, musty odor (like body odor). The shower had black mold and pink slime in it. The bathroom sink and vanity area was organized but also unclean. Room service did not answer their phone. However, the buffet breakfast was good.

Made to order pancakes and breakfast was good. Not enough luggage carts.

Great room! Good breakfast and nice complementary afternoon snack.

Bed was comfortable Bathtub a bit small, water took a bit to warm up but was roomy. Charged for parking and for internet which was a downer.

Very nice stay, good breakfast, friendly staff, clean room and spacious

Under major renovation. Flies at breakfast swarming. Late getting breakfast started. Felt grimly getting out of pool from dust. Hot tub needed water. Way overpriced for what got.

Despite the renovation going on at the hotel, the staff tried their best to accommodate the guests. I'm looking forward to other improvements in amenities and service after the reno is done.

We stayed two nights at the Embassy Suites Seaside 4 young children (1,3,5,7 yrs old). The facilities are okay. It's nothing fancy. The staff were AMAZING!!! From the time we checked in, for each breakfast, happy hour, time at the pool (indoors - a plus when it's rainy and 50 degrees outside), requesting extra sheets and blankets to make a fort, a pack and play for the 1 year old. THEY WERE ALL GREAT PEOPLE!

Great location, short drive to Cannery Row and Aquarium. Great staff, got to room and it smelled of cigarettes. Called front desk they apologized and immediately offered a new room, which we took.They didn't need to apologize for some loser who broke the rules; its a smoke free hotel.

My room faced the ocean. It was clean and nice, but quite warm. The a/c did not work, so I had to open the sliding glass door to the balcony and the bedroom window to get a cooling breeze. Unfortunately, the noise level from the busy highway and roads below was very high. I tried a pay-per-view movie for $17.99, but although the room TV was hi-def, amazingly the movie was not, and shown with the wrong aspect ratio to boot (stretched horizontally so faces were fat). Needless to say, the menu function on the TV had been defeated (this is common in hotels), so I could not even correct the aspect ratio. I demanded a refund and will credit the hotel staff for giving me no problems about that and taking the movie off my bill right away (I am sure I am not the first patron to complain about paying more than the price of a theater ticket for a non-hi-def movie!) My one-night cost was over $300. I expected working A/C and hi-def pay-per-view at such a high price.

Despite my 5 year old's description of this hotel as "boring" it fit the bill for our quick trip to the aquarium. The managers reception (5:30-7:30) was great and I was impressed with the real live alcoholic beverages served. The beer/wine selection was meh but it was free so there you go. Included breakfast was nice but unfortunately the line for the actual eggs was so long. The buffet did have pre made (powdered) eggs. The kids loved the pool. The front desk staff was great. The woman who checked us in was too stiff with an irritating sing song voice but the rest of them were very accommodating when we asked to change to a room with two doubles from the king we were in. The drive to the aquarium was 25 min in traffic. There is a McDonald's nearby and also Jose's Mexican Food which is fantastic.

Booked last minute stay and wasn't disappointed. Elevator wasn't working on first night but was fixed the next morning. Room was ok...2 double beds and pull out couch. Ordered room service, was reasonable. Have to pay $10 for parking. Breakfast was okay...pancakes, eggs, sausage, bacon, cereal, oatmeal, fruit and yogurt. Would have been nice if room had a view but we were only on 3rd floor. There's a Chili's at end of parking lot , Starbucks, McDonald's and Smart and Final across the street. Complimentary water available.
