Love the location and interior decor but wish there was a microwave N blackout curtains!! It was weird how you go up the elevator but then go down a couple steps of stairs for your floor. That was bad i had a stroller!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel has been remodeled so everything is new and clean. Though there is no longer a hot tub, but that is not the reason you would want to stay here. The location is perfect for walking to Cannery Row and the Aquarium. The bike trail is within steps of the hotel along with plenty of places to rent bikes. Underground parking is ample, but ceiling […] height is low so be aware if you have bikes on top of your vehicle, you should let the front desk know. There is some outside parking and the receptionist did ask us if we had a large car. The breakfast was good and enough to get you going in the morning. We would definitely stay here again. Service was friendly and very accommodating. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not so good"
Room marginally clean. No shampoo, soap or conditioner. Conflicting directions from staff. Some level of indifference.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location, right on the bike path that takes you to both Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row. This Holiday Inn Express sits between the two. It's directly across from a nice outdoor fire pit area with comfy seating. Breakfast is the standard Holiday Inn Express. We like that it's free. The only downside is the hotel has no hot tub. We had a corner […] room, which seemed to be bigger than the others. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hotel. Great Location!"
We stayed at this hotel to be close to Cannery Row. My husband's father has difficulty walking and it was our first hotel stay with our 10 month old son, so location was key! There were some weird stairs down and then up again (after taking the elevator to the second floor) that made getting to our room with the stroller a bit of a chore, but there […] are rooms right off the elevator if that would be an issue for you. The room was comfortable. There was a mini fridge, but no microwave. The electric teapot made water far too hot for the baby's bottles so I used warm water from the tap. We couldn't hear any neighbor noise other than the plumbing when they turned on the shower. The continental breakfast was typical. I'm a picky eater, but my family appreciated the breakfast... scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits/gravy, cinnamon rolls, bagels, muffins, cereal, and milk/juice/coffee/tea. The staff was very courteous and helpful whenever we needed something. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cheap and really really nice !"
I would most definitely go back ! Clean, big room, great staff, and one of the best locations to everythingGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Monterey Bay Aquarium"
I've stayed in this Holiday Inn Express multiple times mainly because of the free parking at the hotel and close access to the aquarium and Cannery Row. The setup is a little disjointed - up in the elevator, then down seven steep stairs - but it's charming and cozy for the area. Our room was recently remodeled so it was completely up to date.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Lots of stairs so not for wheelchairs, but very nice layout. A little deceiving saying they had wine and cheese in the evening since it was a winery and you sat through a "sales pitch", but good wine and ended up buying some. Nice breakfast, very nice layout for a family, but pleasant for a couple also...we'll be back for sureGenuine Expedia guest review
"one night stay"
Clean and comfortable room for one night stay with good Internet . Breakfast was average...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Perfect location, parking underground was free and easy to maneuver. Folks there really nice, little pricey but worth it for the convience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One night in Monterey"
The hotel staff and rooms are both excellent. The complimentary breakfast was satisfying and tasty. The one thing I wish I'd known before I booked is how awkward the layout of the hotel is. We had a second floor room; so, we took an elevator to get there. Did the elevator serve any purpose? Not really. When you get to the second floor, you have to walk […] down one staircase and up another staircase to get to the second floor rooms. If my knees were normal and could maneuver without pain, this would have been only a slight inconvenience; but, if you are like me, and it is painful to walk up and down stairs, choose another hotel with a less strenuous lay-out.

"Best location for the price"
Pros -Parking -Early check in not a problem -Breakfast was good -Location location location Con's -a little noisy (cars driving bye) since it's close to the street but not loud -no blackout curtains (so be prepared to wake up early)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Located between Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf, both are an easy walk. The only thing missing was an ocean view, but who wants to stay in your room when you're this close.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Was really happy with hotel, the staff were helpful, good breakfast, great location. The only issue we had was it was a bit of a hike with stairs from the carpark to our room. I would stay there again but pack light or take my husband next time to carry all the bags.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel.very close to wharf and aquarium"
The hotel was very clear and a good wine &chease serve.parking area was goodGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel overall"
What we love about the hotel : spacious room, great location so we can walk to the aquarium, and the included breakfast. Room was also pretty clean, with nice TV and clean bathroom. Parking is underground and free. We thought the bed was not comfortable, but with that said we will come back to this hotel again in the future.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Would Highly Recommend"
This is really the place to stay! Rooms are large, clean and quiet. Breakfast is great and has a large variety of food. You can't beat the location only a block from Cannery Row and an easy 5 minute walk to the Aquarium. The front desk staff is among the best as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for short stay"
Stayed two nights and never had to use the car. Lovely rooms in a great location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Spacious Rooms and Great Location!"
Our room was very large, the decor was fresh and contemporary. We had 2 double beds and a sofa bed. At the foot of each bed was a very plush bench, very convenient for luggage or to sleep small toddlers. Even with the sofa bed fully opened, there was plenty of space. One of our teenagers complained that the sofa bed was too lumpy and it sunk in the […] middle, the other teenager slept like a rock. The double beds were very comfortable. Everything was clean and spotless, furnishings were new. Shower: the water pressure is not adjustable, too strong and annoying. The free breakfast was so convenient, when the hot homemade biscuits came out, our son made a bacon, egg & cheese biscuit sandwich. Bacon was thin & crispy, my favorite. Coffee was very good. After checking out, we strolled down Cannery Row to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, about 4 short blocks away. The desk clerk told us that we can leave our car at the hotel for up to 24 hrs. after checking out. He also told us that Fisherman's Wharf was just a 10 min. walk from the hotel using the Monterey Bay Coastal Trail. It took us over 20 min. but it was worth it. We ate at Crabby Jim's, free calamari appetizer, saw a seal from our table exploring the rocks in the clear water below. (We are from the LA area, the water is never this clean in Santa Monica) Thought this might be a very expensive tourist trap but it was reasonably priced for fresh seafood. Very friendly, old school waiter. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Average hotel, well located for the Aquarium"
Typical Holiday Inn Express. Practical, good for our purposes. First room we were assigned smelled musty and was noisy. We requested and were granted a room change. The second room was completely satisfactory. Very we'll located for the Aquarium and Cannery Row visit.Genuine Expedia guest review
my wife and i stayed here for our anniversary. when we got there i asked the guy at the front desk if they had any champagne or something to make the room special as it was our anniversary. he said yes we do but you have to book it at the time of the reservation. we got there early left for a few hours to enjoy monterey (everything was in walking distance) […] and when it was time to check back in, there was a bottle of champagne waiting for us chilled. very nice room, great location!

"very accessible and convenient to the wharf"
Front desk staff was very accommodating, room very clean, location very accessible to all tourist attractions.Genuine Expedia guest review
The employees were nice. The curtains were fake and couldn't be drawn.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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

"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
