The whole family loved the rooms & the breakfasts.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
"Trip to Monterey - Family Weekend Getaway"
Very convenient location close to the surrounding activities. Left our car and walked around including the pier. Beautiful weekend during our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great price for location!"
This is a fantastic location for the price. You do not need your car to get anywhere on the waterfront from here. Room aremodern and comfy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quick Stay in Cannery Row"
This hotel worked out really well for us. We arrived early, around Noon, and were nicely told our room would be ready at 1:30. We were invited to park our car in the lower garage and perhaps take a short walk. We were only a block up from Cannery Row and the Aquarium. We finally came back at 3:30 and our room was upgraded and ready! We found everything […] clean, it is an older hotel but nicely furnished and kept up. Breakfast was fine for us--delicious muffins, a choice of breads, english muffins, cereal, yogurt, lo-fat and non-fat milk, juice, eggs and sausage. Typical for a Holiday Inn Express and just what we were looking for. Our 2 days were enjoyable. The room was comfortable and the area is quiet and everything we needed was within walking distance. The room price was more reasonable than the hotels on Cannery Row. I would definitely stay again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We had a wonderful time in Monterey. Our room, it's location and the service were all excellent. We will recommend The Holiday Inn Express to friends and family. Thank you!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Enjoyable place to stay."
Everything was great except we did not find the bed to be very comfortable. Linens were fine, but the mattress was not very comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
There are several stairs up and down between elevator (1) and rooms, so you do possibly lug your suitcases up and down! Otherwise, great hotel, perfect location for where we wanted to be near water and the kayaking!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient and clean"
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and convenient to all locationsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Family vacation proved great fun!"
We loved staying in this hotel- we rode our bikes everywhere so the location at Cannery Row and right by the bike trail- AMAZING! Room was great! We requested an ocean view and got one- second floor! Rm 217. :-) The decor is modern and updated and the bed very comfortable, the bathroom clean and tub very nice! We had a pull-out couch to a bed too and […] HDTV channels. A nice little fridge and coffee maker. And there are complaints on here about the breakfast, but honestly, was great- hot and cold breakfast items! It was wonderful! Oh, and the stairs were not a problem for us (like others have mentioned) cuz our room was by the elevator. NOTE: request a room at the front of the hotel/by elevator and you won't have to worry about the stairs! The ONLY 3 downsides--> •(like other people said) The curtains are sheer and so people can see you! •There is no microwave in the rooms or anywhere in hotel (we asked)! •The vending machine and jacuzzi (more impt) were both not working! Overall though, we will WITHOUT HESITATION stay here again! :-) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Holiday Inn Express Monterey-Cannery Row"
Overall... we had a good experience with the hotel. It was a good value and included comforts of flat screen television and room safe. The bathrooms were simplistic - rolling doors vs. latching which was a turn off. Continental breakfast included some warm items - arrive early since seating is limited. Included free parking. Only negatives to take away […] from stay was one day room service missed our room completely - night manager said they didn't have an evening assistant but was helpful in removing our trash and bringing clean towels. Close to town and easy to reach most places by foot. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"the best option price - value"

"Seeing Monterey and Carmel"
This hotel is well located near shops and restaurants, but is in a residential neighborhood that was quiet except for the traffic on the road. Also, I could hear toilets flushing at night. The room seemed fairly clean, except the sheets were "limp" which always makes me feel they are not clean. I also wiped down the door because of a few dirty marks […] on it. But overall, the room was comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. However, The elevator was disgustingly dirty and worn. That immediately turned me off. Plus, we were on the third floor , went up on the elevator, then had to go down 6 steps, then up 6 steps....with luggage! What a nuisance and a chore that was. 24 hour coffee was offered in the lobby, front desk staff were polite. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"We defintely would recommend this hotel to anyone."
We arrived in Monterey early and we were able to check in which was awesome. We love the location. It is close to Cannery Row. We enjoyed the wine and cheese in the evening. The bathroom looked remodeled and it was very nice. We loved the guide on DirecTv. We felt like we were home. This is the second time we have stayed here and we were not disappointed. […] We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Everything was terrific. It has the feel of a boutique hotel - not your typical Holiday Inn Express setup. The only negatives are the breakfast area is pretty small and you have to carry your luggage up half a flight of stairs to get to most of the rooms, but everything else was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
