"Nice but slippery showers"
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. It was very hard to wash off and became very slippery in shower. I even slipped, left a bruise and thought I hurt sometimes but I was able to walk it off.

"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!

"walk to most things."
This was a stop between our drive from L.A. to San Francisco. Hotel was very clean, breakfast was great. I loved the arrangement of the rooms with the courtyard in the middle. No pool, but we were there was so much to do we probably would not have used it. The price was a bit more than we intended to pay, but we enjoyed our stay. Parking was easy.

"Best option..."
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.

"Great location, spacious rooms"
We stayed in one of the double queen rooms. Originally I had planned for five people but we ended up just taking four. One of the girls slept on the couch (although it does fold out to a bed), and the rest of us slept on the beds. The beds are kind of small, but worked for two tiny ladies. My friends thought the water pressure in the shower was too low, but other than that we didn't have any complaints. Parking and breakfast are free, and they did a little wine and cheese reception. The location is great if you're planning to spend time on Cannery Row. I would definitely stay here again.

"Great location to Cannery Row"
With two beds plus a sofa sleeper, the room accommodates 5-6 pretty well. There is a nice outdoor sitting area in the center courtyard and the normal Holiday Inn breakfast. The room was clean, the whole property nicely maintained........but for us, the real appeal is walking across the street to the walkway that leads right down to Cannery Row. Excellent location!

This place is great if you're more interested in Cannery Row than staying in the hotel itself. The hotel was clean and rooms were nice but there is no pool or hot tub so you wouldn't be entertaining yourself there. The continental breakfast was great! The aquarium is a short 10 minute walk and there's a great walking/biking path just across the street. Service was excellent as well.

The hotel is one block from Cannery Row, and less than a half mile from the aquarium. Very convenient to where we wanted to go. There was a nice breakfast each morning and wine and cheese in the evening. The hotel was very clean. We had one issue during our stay. On our second day the key would not open the room door. They reset it three times, until the desk clerk had to come up and tinker with it to make it work. Other than that it was a nice stay. It was a little inconvenient to take the elevator to the third floor and then have to walk down some step to get to our landing but it alright.

"Convenient location"
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.

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.

"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.

"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.

"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.

"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.
