"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
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
"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

"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
Definately going back...need to be in the area in 2 months and will book there again..Genuine Hotels.com 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
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
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
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
"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.

"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
"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
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
"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
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
Nice for a budget hotel. Good room. Decent breakfast. Weird elevator stops 8 steps above your floor. Good location. Good parking. Would stay there again. There is no service so service question above is irrelevant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Chalking distance to everything"
Very nice hotel to stay with my family. Definitely would stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent value. Great location"
We lucked out with this find. We booked this for a last minute trip with family. Close to all major sights in Monterey, The rooms were clean and simple. Ours needed to be aired a bit - it felt slightly stuffy. However I am quite sensitive to smells and it was only me complaining in our entire party of 6! So it is not bad at all.. Loved this place for […] the price. Will definitely return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great breakfast and within walking distance to shops, restaurants, and free trolley stop is just half a block away.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Better options for the money"
Nice enough place but several annoyances (checked into room before it was ready, keys not working, horrible parking) and certainly not worth the rate with so many other options.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location and great for family"
Nice big room for a family and good breakfast service in morning. Great Location!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a great place to stay with the kids for a quick getaway to Monterey. Everything was great from the clanliness of the hotel to the nicely appointed rooms and the attentive customer service. I would recommend this hotel to others staying in Monterey. The only thing I would point out is that even though the hotel has elevators we still had to […] go up and down two sets of stairs to get to our room from the elevator. Not bad but be aware of this when you are bringing in your luggage. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Park the car and forget about it!"
This hotel was the perfect fit for a 3 day getaway for my husband, myself and our one year old daughter. I gave this hotel high star ratings while keeping in mind this is a 2.5 star property. It is not the Ritz Carlton, but it far exceeded our expectations for service and location. The front desk was kind and helpful. We had a lovely 2nd floor king […] room that looked out towards the bike path. Some other rooms may not be as comfortable but ours was clean and well maintained. Perfectly fine for our purposes. The location was perfect. We parked the car and didn't touch a steering wheel again for 4 days. Which is bliss when you are dealing with car seats. We just strolled everywhere - aquarium, restaurants - even down to Fisherman's Wharf. Breakfast was fine - especially if you just need hot water for baby cereal and a bagel. Great, relaxing getaway for the whole family! If you plan on being out and about anyway, save your money and enjoy the Holiday Inn at Cannery Row! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Up Down is a little problem"
Good hotel. Hotel staffs are friendly and kind. One little problem is up down stairs on the collidor even on a same level floor. Not convenient for heavy luggage carrier.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Stayed here with Wife and two children, first off the staff is great! They are extremely courteous and willing to help. The location is absolutely great and the room we stayed in (Two Bed Deluxe) was very clean, nice and very spacious.

"Great Family Hotel close to Cannery Row"
Holiday Inn Express- Cannery Row was a great pick for myself, my husband and daughter's recent trip to Monterey. The room was clean and able to keep warm, which was good with the outside cold temperatures. It was overall quiet and had a nice complimentary breakfast selection. It is a very short walk to the main attractions on Cannery Row, which has […] good restaurants and family attractions. We would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Holiday Inn Cannery Row"
Very well located, in Dec. 2011 our room looked quite new. The hotel could use a larger space for breakfast though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Holiday Inn Monterey"
Our Lil Family decided on a last minute trip to Monterey and actually booked this room the morning we headed to our destination. The room was comfy and tidy. Breakfast was provided, it was mediocre. There were stairways that led to our room after we exited the elevators. It was a bit of an inconvenience with a stroller and luggage in toll. Location […] and price of the hotel room was perfect from all the tourist attractions. Would probably book again if we ever come back to Monterey to visit. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"exceptional for a Holdiay Inn"
The location and style of this hotel was more than I expect from a typical Holiday Inn. The breakfasts were really good with a lot of options and variety. The room was spacious and very stylish. The internet worked wonderfully. The bathroom was up to date with a really nice curtain and lovely fixtures. It took a while for the water in the sink to heat […] up but not in the tub, so a minor complaint. The location is outstanding. Really a nice hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
So surprised by this hotel! We were looking for value and great location and found a sweet little gem. Within close walking distance to everything - Cannery Row and the Aquarium - we left our car at the hotel (free parking) and strolled with our two little kids. The room was perfect for us and I am very picky! Clean, recently remodeled, and large. There […] was a nice, complimentary breakfast as well, which really helped our budget. We will definitely return! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We had a great stay !! The staff was friendly and it was in a great location to walk to the aquarium and Cannery Row! Would definitely stay here again !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A/C did not work!! But great location. Would certainly stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice hotel. Nice service, room was well maintained. The only down fall, if I have to say 1 is that the layout of the hotel was not easy to get from front desk to room. Up and down stairs with luggage was difficult. Other than that, it is a very nice and convenient to all activities.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Surprisingly quiet and very clean"
I would have given this hotel 5 stars all the way down except for one thing. The gaps around the door were very noticeable. The light that shine through was a little much. The hotel should spend the $9 and go down to the hardware store and pick up some door weatherstripping. Besides that everything was excellent and I plan to stay again. My wife and […] daughter loved it, especially the location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"7min walking distance to aquarium"
My wife (7mos pregnant) and I took our two year old daughter to the aquarium. The location of the hotel is only a 7min walking distance to the aquarium and all the restaurants. The hotel staff was kind enough to allow us to park all day before checking in so that we could walk to the aquarium. Did I mention, my wife was 7mos pregnant and it only took […] us 7min to walk to the aquarium. Well, maybe not exactly 7min (I don't want publish false information), the point is, it is any easy, short walk with one hill. The staff was nice and the room and grounds were very clean. However, I will give you three items to note if you plan to stay here. 1) The hotel has a multi-level design. There are levels that you must walk down and then up stairs (after exiting the elevator) to get to your room. Therefore, making it difficult if you have a stroller and lots of bags. Ask for a room near the elevator (same level) if you have a stroller or wheelchair. 2) The eating area is also the lobby. If you have a large family or group, you will not fit in the 3 or 4 small tables available for eating. 3) The west side or back side of the hotel gets a lot of noise from the street (trucks, cars etc.). Other than that, it was a good price, good location, good staff and clean. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful Experience & Great Location"
Staff were very polite, rooms were very nice, clean, and comfortable. Breakfast was great with wide selection to choose from. Excellent location with aquarium and attractions within walking distance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel rooms are very run down, old bath room doors which don't even lock. I arrive there early and once I got the room I went and checked it. It was facing the road so it was noisy. I requested a different room but the rep at hotel said everything is already given out. I would have believed that if the parking lot was full but it was not, there was […] plenty of parking. Since we have paid in full so we did not had a choice to change the hotel. Next we found a bug in the bathroom. When I mentioned this to the rep he said oh it migh have came when cleaning guys open the door, well all the way to bathroom I don't think so. In the night next door people were loud and kept that up for a while. For the price hotel is not worth it. There are other hotels in surrounding that look much better.

"Hotel HIE Monterey"
Great location for our purposes.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location for Cannery Row and Aquarium. Large selection for breakfast although dining area is the lobby and not very appealing. Wine and cheese likewise nice but also served in unappealing lobby. Rooms upgraded and comfortable. Would stay there again because of location. Not cheap but worth leaving the car and walking. Very kid friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very Close to Cannery Row"
The front desk gentlemen was very polite and helpful at check in. The hotel is located very close to the restaurants on Cannery Row. The complimentary breakfast was disappointing considering the price we paid for the hotel. Overall the hotel room was very clean and comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice hotel well positioned"
stayed for three days liked the room,breakfast was ok and its position is excellent for Cannery Row and the attractions,no fee for parking .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good location. Basic included breakfast. Unfortunately it was very noisy (with very poor soundproofing) from people in the room upstairs - sounded like there was a basketball game going on upstairs until late at night and again early in the morning. We wouldn't stay there again unless we had a guarantee of a top-floor room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
