"What we expected"
The hotel is small with only 44 rooms but very clean. The staff was friendly and carried out all requests for early check in, extra pillows etc. Breakfast was as expected and wine and cheese in the evening was very nice perk. What makes this hotel great is its location. The path for Cannery row is literally across the street and you are shopping within a couple of mins. It is about a 5 to 10 min walk on the path to the aquarium and if you take the path in the other direction from the hotel fisherman's wharf is about a 15 to 20 min walk. The hotels free parking is located right under the hotel, and we didn't need to drive anywhere once parked. Everything was within walking distance.

We loved the room. It's in a great location close to everything. The room was large and clean. Hotel staff was very friendly. The wine and cheese in the afternoon was a great snack. Nothing special but agreat snack. Breakfast was better tha just fruit and muffins but again nothing special.

"Location location"
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Excellent location and convenience to Cannery Row activities, we walked everywhere. I was also impressed with the continental breakfast. It seemed nicer to me than most complimentary breakfast spreads. I took an on-the-go oatmeal container with me and it was clutch later on during the trip. The room was clean as well, and the staff was friendly.

"A Trip to Monterey! Worth Staying"
Hotel was great. We were set up in a first floor room. The room and bathroom was very clean. The hotel staff was very helpful. Provided a good wine and cheese "hour" with a guest winery hosting a wine tasting. Continental breakfast was standard - very decent. The only issue that we experienced was paper thin walls/ceiling? Perhaps it was due to us staying over New Years but could hear stomping, running around, people running up and down the stairs all night. Otherwise would recommend this hotel and plan to return here the next time we are in Monterey.

"Stayed 12/24/14"
The breakfadt buffet is a joke. It is more of a kitchen countertop, no vareity or good quality ingredients. The room was clean and spacious, but the AC unit was so loud that I could barely sleep. I could also hear the water pumps/ pipes from the other rooms whenever someone turned their water on. It is definitely a waste of money.

Expedia is trying to block bad reviews for this facility. This facility is poorly constructed and terrible. Breakfast wasn't good either, parking was horrible, elevator seemed like it would fall apart. Disabled and stroller access is missing.

"Old construction, but close to aquarium"
Really old construction. Could hear all conversations around and from above. Parking is free, but the structure was really small and awkward. Doesn't seem to have disabled or stroller access to the rooms. The stairs seemed to go right through the building, so not sure how the folks on the top floor would be evacuated in case of a fire. The air conditioner was a few feet away from the beds, and didn't work well. Located at walking distance from the aquarium. There is a Subway restaurant and Cannery row restaurants nearby. Room was clean inspite of its old construction.

"Nice hotel in a great location"
This was my second stay at this Holiday Inn Express. When my wife and I travel, we don't spend much time at our hotel, so all we want is a clean, comfortable and quiet room. This HIX fit the bill. Breakfast was included in the price and free parking and wifi were a plus. I would stay here again on my next visit to Monterey.

"Good enough"
There isn't anything spectacular about this hotel. If you are looking for a comfortable bed in a good location then this will do. The breakfast was pretty good as far as continental breakfasts go. We were able to walk everywhere (including the aquarium) which was convenient as well. Free parking and wifi are great perks, but we did not utilize the wifi. We heard a lot of noise from the ice dispenser at all hours of the night but that isn't the hotel's fault. Who gets ice at 4am? We also heard the guests upstairs walking around. I was surprised that the hotel didn't have central heating and air, but instead had a small window unit that was quite noisy.

Great location, right next to Cannery row, short walks to the aquarium and to the wharf. Their breakfast had pancakes, eggs, and sausage/bacon and was actually pretty good for an included breakfast. Our room had a little view of the ocean and we could hear the seals. Overall, pretty decent for a Holiday Inn Express.

"Great location"
We stayed at this hotel for one night on our way to another destination. Got a special last minute rate. The hotel is in a great location, but I would not stay here if I had to pay the standard rate. It is an older hotel definitely showing its age. No bells and whistles. Just a place to sleep within walking distance to Cannery Row and the wharf. I would personally rather stay at a nicer place a little further away, if one of the nicer hotels on the water aren't in the budget.

"Still just a Hiloday Inn - can NOT be over 3 1/2"
I don't know where the other reviewers normally stay, but it must be pretty bad. I chose this place, reluctantly, based on the excellent rating score. I should have known, it's still just a Holiday Inn. Hard mattress, noisy doors the neighbors like to slam, scratchy towels, odd sink and setup in the bathroom, oh, and the REALLY busy road the windows in the room were facing. Very noisy and hard to nap in the late afternoon. The breakfast, included for 2 at $20 extra, was just ok not great. Look the place is not horrible, it was clean enough, but very basic. A 3-3 1/2 tops.

We were given one of the handicapped-accessible rooms and found it very nice. Good wide doors and even a button you could push from outside the door to get assistance. Breakfast was among the best we've seen at Holiday Inn Express and evening wine and cheese was good. Pleasant staff even recommended good restaurants away from "tourist" sites. Easy access to 17 mile drive and Pebble Beach. Definitely will stay there again.

"great central location"
This hotel served its purpose. It was right on cannery row, next to the bike path, close to bike rental shop, several good restaurants. Someone in our party had a bed that was soaking wet (from water we think, not urine) and they changed the room the next day with no problem. However it was a little disturbing to see they filled the room with another unsuspecting couple that afternoon...Noise (which we had read was a problem) wasn't too bad although you could hear kids clomping up and down the stairs...but at night it was quiet. The only other thing (which other people had problems with) is that there was no way to get from the elevator to the room with out encountering stairs so if you were in a wheelchair or otherwise incapacitated, this hotel might be a problem. Otherwise we enjoyed out stay.

The room was comfortable and well maintained and clean. The staff was courteous. The breakfast was OK, but not special and the wine and cheese in the afternoon was well, less than stellar with cheap wine and plain cheese cut in squares. But I am not complaining too much about that. The location was very good with everything within a short walk. Underground parking was handy and safe.

We were satisfied with the cleanliness and location. It was very loud, you could hear every door slam shut. The soap was the only thing I did not care for.

"Just Ok"
The hotel is not very nice. It's location is perfect for a quick walk to the Aquarium and Cannery Row. Staff was nice. The room was very bland and the breakfast was just ok. I thought since it was a Holiday Inn, it would have more to it, but guess not in Monterey. I paid for 2 nights for this place and was pretty disappointed. ALSO, there was no elevator to our room (we stayed on the first floor - but half the rooms were up 8 steps), we had a double stroller and 2 young kids! Pain to carry it up and down every time we left our room.

"Excellent (seriously), but one issue"
This is a nice clean hotel in an excellent location. We were able to walk down to the warf and aquarium, and also up into the local main street where there are a lot of great local's restaurants. The hotel had parking and we just left our car. The wine and cheese service was a nice surprise and the breakfast was pretty good. As for the "issue," the walls are not insulated. You can hear things in other rooms. We got the room right next to the service desk on the first floor. The lobby restroom is exactly next to where you head is trying to fall asleep. You can hear the toilet paper rolling. Fortunately, the front desk clerk locked the restroom door upon my complaint-- obviously I was not the first to complain.

"Great Location!"
First off I would like to say, the hotel staff or very friendly!My family and I stayed there for 2 nights and the first day we arrived we went straight to The Aquarium at about 11:00 am because hotel check in wasn't until 3:00 pm so after the 4 hour visit we arrived at our hotel to check in and the hotel employee explained to us that we could have checked in early and saved on a purchase of 2 day Aquarium tickets for the price of 1 and the hotel offers free parking so that would have saved us $15.00.What a steal...Oh well next time we know. I'm writing this review because I want people to know what I didn't and so you can get a good deal:) Also have to say that the hotel offers free breakfast. I thought it was just going to be cereal and fruit but it was the works, pancakes,eggs,bacon,oatmeal.toast,bagels,muffins,fruit,raisin bread,yogurt,juice,milk,coffee...It was pretty good for being free can't complain!

We stayed off-season and mid-week but the price was perfect and the location was ideal. Significantly less than the more upscale options on the Row but just as close and convenient to the restaurants and shops. The staff were friendly, the facilities were clean and well maintained, the parking was ample and free. This is, in my opinion, THE place to stay if you're looking to be by Cannary Row. Save the money otherwise spent at the Intercontinental or Plaza and enjoy some wine tasting or dinner at the Lodge in Pebble Beach.
