Walking distance to all that Cannery Row has to offer. The staff was very helpful in getting us acquainted with the area. We stayed in a two queen bed suite for the 3 of us. The room was spacious and included a refrigerator. They have plenty of underground parking which we were allowed to use for the 3 hours we spent at the aquarium after checkout. […] I would stay here again and have already recommended the place to family. The breakfast buffet they put out is decent. Don't expect gourmet and you'll be fine. What I found interesting was the automatic pancake machine. perfect pancakes. cereal, what passes as an omelet, sausage, and yogurt are also available. My only real negative, and it is a minor one for me, were the bed pillows. Not firm nor large enough. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Monterey Holiday Inn Express"
We reserved two rooms. We had to cancel one of the rooms after the cancel by date because of a sudden illness that resulted in going to an emergency room in a hospital. Both the hotel and Expedia were very accommodating and gave us a refund for the one room. Part of our family stayed in the remaining room. They were very impressed with the facility […] and would return to that location again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fun in Monterey"
Nice stay, convenient to at Monterey and Big Sur Area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is very well located to everything you want to do in Monterey, as well as being more reasonably priced than some close by. The only drawback as others have stated is the steps you have to haul your luggage up and down. The room itself was very nice (#106) and spacious enough for 2 adults and small child with all his stuff. Oh, if you have small […] children a must do is Dennis the Menace park. It is such a cool place, I have never seen a better child's park with so much to do. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great location. Staff helpful. Only negative is getting your heavy bags to your room. Most rooms require you to go up or down a flight of stairs. I would stay there again. I had two kids with me and we had enough room in the room to feel comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Our stay at the Holiday Inn Express - Cannery row"
The biggest advantage of this hotel is the location on Wave street, which is right next to the Cannery Row. The hotel room is kind of old for the kind of price you paid for, but it is the location, location. Everything else is about what you can get for a 3 star hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beds are rock hard"
Didnt expect beds to be rock hard and room to be so small that bathroom door slides instead of regular opens, 308 room was a nightmare to navigate stroller since you come off of elevator then walk down a flight of steps only to walk up another flight of steps again to get to roomGenuine Expedia guest review
"Small, clean, hotel close to Cannery Row."
Hotel was nice and clean, close to Cannery Row, but the Hotel had thin walls and loud water pipes.Genuine Expedia guest review
Everything at the hotel was great except for one thing...the Bed..it was hard as a rock! Pillows were not that great either, but the place was clean and friendly staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice room at a decent price. Very convenient location and included parking, internet and a breakfast. Breakfast accomdations were in lobby but really we weren't looking for ambiance just some food and then on our way to the aquarium. Room was clean and quiet. We would definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A great base for a trip to the Monterey Peninsula"
We were very happy with our stay. One block off Cannery Row with an easy and short walk to the Aquarium. Free parking and breakfast are definite pluses. Monterey is very central for visiting anything between Santa Cruz and Big Sur. The rooms were clean and quiet. The hotel looks more like a condo that blends in to the neighborhood well. Would highly […] recommend Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient location. Close to Can. Row and wharf."
Friendly staff, clean, comfortable. Easy walk to Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf. The price was a bit high for the quality of the room...we definitely paid for location.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel in a great location. Park the car and walk everywhere. Very nice rooms, breakfast included, and even complimentary wine and cheese in the afternoon. Would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice, clean, great for the money."
A very nice place to stay, the stairs can be a bit wearing but otherwise it was fine. Close to the beach, some nice views of the bay. The free breakfast was much better than expected and it goes from six until ten, so you have plenty of time to get down to the lobby. They also had wine and cheese in the evening which was a nice touch. I'm not much of […] a wine drinker, but free food and booze is always appreciated. The wireless internet can be a bit bumpy, but I was able to stream videos and not all places can handle that. It is a bit hard to see from the street when you first arrive, but once you know where it is, all is good. Overall a very nice stay. You'll find better if you want to pay more, but if you want a clean comfortable place to sleep and have breakfast for a reasonable rate, this place rocks . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for a quick trip"
This place is wonderful if you need a quick hotel for overnight and don't want to drop a fortune. Considering the hotel rooms around it were two and three times what I paid it was great. No frills and my room backed onto a street so it wasnt great for noise but it worked. Like I said, great cheap alternative to what is around it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and close"
Great hotel, our 4th time staying here! Clean and walking distance to everything. Free parking and wi-fi make this hotel the best value for the $$. Love the free breakfast in the morning, wine and cheese in the evening is good too! We will definitely stay here again and again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The location is excellent ."
The hotel is next to the trail from Cannery Row to Fisherman Wharf so you can just walk up and down this path for sight seeing . All the restaurants like Bubba Gump , Fish Hopper or Fisherman Wharf seafood are all in walking distance.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel great price"
Place is great right off can row 30 yards from waterGenuine Expedia guest review
Definately going back...need to be in the area in 2 months and will book there again..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"In process of remodel"
Great...despite remodel it was quiet, clean, convenient and affordable. Will stay again!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great and convenient hotel"
The hotel couldn't be at a better location. The aquarium, cannery row, multiple restaurants, and some beaches are within walking distance. The hotel and rooms look clean, modern, and comfortable. We had a room facing the street that was described by other reviewers. Yes, it is true that cars start driving at around 6am but when you keep the windows […] closed it is manageable. The rest of the night was extremely quiet and peaceful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Keep up the contact"
Monterey, what a beautiful quiet place. The staff are great, helpful, fun, but....they forgot to pick up our laundry on thursday night. We checked out on Friday morning for Honululu. We got our laundry in HNL on Tuesday afternoon. So, if you need anything important, keep at them. Wont be a problem.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
excellent accommodations. good variety for breakfast. would have been nice if there was a hot tub. or even a small pool.Genuine Expedia guest review
"close to the shops"
We were unhappy with our stay due to the fact that we had reserved a room with sofa bed for our teen granddaughters. We were told upon our arrival that the room had been given away and we would have to put our teens on the floor that night until the next night. We were appalled. My husband left the motel to sleep somewhere else that night so the girls […] could have a bed. We had to repack the next day and re move in that night to the room we had originally reserved. We were very unhappy with this service. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved this hotel and staff. Walking distance to everything, free parking (they offered for us to park for free on the day we left) if we wanted to spend the day in the area. Only weird thing, our room was on a 1/2 floor so we couldn't use the luggage cart to move our luggage, but it was worth the view.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice hotel."
Small, clean, close to the Aquarium and Cannery Row.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location for the price"
Our friends had recommended we stay near Cannery Row but we couldn't afford the two main options so I decided to try out this hotel -- we've always had good luck with Holiday Inns and this was no exception. I was pleasantly surprised, it was a very easy and quick walk to all the amenities Cannery Row had to offer and centrally located to all the activities […] we wanted to do (Dennis the Menace Park, drive down Hwy 101 to McWay Falls, Aquarium). My only complaint is that the first floor is actually two short flights of stairs up with no ramp or elevator access - we had a stroller with us so carrying that up and down was a pain and being on the first floor was somewhat misleading but that said, I would stay here again and just request the second floor that does have elevator access. Also, the breakfast was good and saved us time (not having to hunt down food early in the morning with an infant and toddler)! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Modern spacious rooms at affordable price"
Great spacious room. Not too expensive. Walking distance to restaurants and aquarium. Plenty of parking. Complimentary breakfast was decent. I would definatley recommend this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Place to Stay for a Weekend Getaway"
In walking distance to everything in Cannery Row. Staff are more than helpful, to the point that every hotel would benefit from cloning this staff and implementing them into their own staff. Room was ultra clean and the bed very comfortable. All in all, this is where I'll be staying every time I visit Monterey.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location @ a good price"
Nearly perfect hotel with the exception of a few amenities not working. Hot tub, lobby fireplace and the tv in the room. I would stay at the hotel again. I will recomment the hotel to others.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice stay for a quick overnight"
Excellent for a quick and easy overnight stay. Breakfast was good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Rate, Great Location, Great Staff!"
After making the reservation, we called the hotel desk and they were great in helping assure we had a king bed and even made sure it was a great room with an ocean view. At first we though it was a bit out of the way but we found it was within an easy walk to the aquarium, right on top of Cannery Row, and a leisurely stroll to old town and Fisherman's […] Warf. Highly Recommended. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great rate for location"
very satisfied with my stay.... cost + location an easy walk to all the attractionsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We took a family trip to show the kids the aqarium. The hotel was very nice and clean. It was nice that all of the Monterey attractions were within walking distance of the hotel. The breakfast that was available to us in the lobby was impressive . We will definitely stay there again on our next trip to Monterey.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great family hotel"
The room was great for our family of five. Plenty of room to spread out!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel... excellent location"
Room was adequate. We were a group of 5 in my family. Excellent location, close to Cannery Row and the Aquarium. Room seemed clean and staff was helpful. For a short stay is OK... not much to do.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was great and in a great location. Walking distance to the aquarium, Cannery Row and many dinning options. It was great to have free WIFI in the room and hotel offered nightly wine tasting with wines from local vineyards. With free parking, this hotel is a great option for any reason to visit the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Paying for location"
Generally the hotel was fine. It is just a holiday inn. Thin walls, wall unit AC and heater, queen beds are really full size, but service was friendly and the hotel is a short walk to the aquarium. Next time I will try a different hotel. Good luck.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good proximity to Aquarium, some other drawbacks."
Too many stairs. Couldn't use the luggage cart to get close to our room, so we had to take several trips to get our family's luggage to the room. The garage access to the elevator was propped open - while this made access easier, anyone who walked down to the elevator could've then gone up into the hotel. The room was nicely appointed, but smelled like […] feet. We were given a room facing Wave Street, so it was noisier than we would've liked. The breakfast was a high point - while not a gourmet meal, it was much better than a "continental" - bacon, pancakes, cinnamon rolls, yogurt, cereal, juices, etc. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel - Awesome Location - a little loud"
The room was nice, well kept and nicely designed. Awesome location within walking distance of Cannery Row. Staff was kind and polite. Weather was very cold so had to set the heater - it was very loud and woke me up every time it turned on. Around 730 I could hear the shower and toilet in the room above me, and more than one person walking around. So […] I guess its not very sound proof. I understand that housekeeping needs to get started at some point to prepare for new arrivals but right about the time the walking ceased - the vaccum cleaner started - at about 9am Sunday morning. Its not about the staff, location or cleanliness - that was all very good. However, I was disturbed by the the noise level so early in the morning. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel is conveniently located to Cannery Row and the aquarium, was very clean, staff is very friendly and the wine tasting was a pleasant surprise. Will definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cute exterior - comfortable, modern rooms"
If you're looking for upscale grandeur, this isn't it, but for us, intimate size, family-friendly atmosphere, nice bedroom furniture, and central location were just right. Very comfortable bed, upscale bathroom fixtures, spacious, quiet, and warm room on a cold night. Minuses, as others have noted: parking is cramped, not much of a view from rooms.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Outstanding value, great location"
The hotel is in a great location, 20 yards away from much more expensive Cannery Row hotels. The room was well decorated, beds were comfortable, good water pressure in the shower, free wi-fi internet, many TV channels, and a refrigerator. There is a parking garage for hotel guests, saving $15 per day or more for parking on Cannery Row. There are a number […] of good restaurants within walking distance. There were a few negatives. Our room, No. 107, was adjacent to a street and the traffic noise was a bit annoying. The heater/air conditioner was next to the bed at ear level. The beds were comfortable but be aware that double bed is an accurate description; they were a bit cozy for two people. Finally, the breakfast was okay but the dining area is small and was too crowded. Overall, this hotel is a great value. We will choose it again for our next visit.

Room is comfortable and clean, staff is friendly. Complementary ontinental breakfast is super fresh and has a lot of choices. When I got home, I found out my kid's dental retainer was left at the hotel. I called and they mailed it to us.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Family of 6 booked two rooms for two nights."
Very pleasantly surprised that the reviews that led me to booking The Holiday Inn Express were spot on! Convenient location, large rooms and the breakfast and wine tasting in the evenings were great bonuses. We stayed for two nights on the first floor. It is true that you can hear the traffic through the thin walls...but that is my only complaint. I […] would go back again for sure! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
staff was excellent, so were breakfast choices and wine bar. But the hotel is set up very strangely with lots of stairs. Location is great just a couple of blocks from Cannery RowGenuine Expedia guest review
