The breakfast and wine and cheese in the afternoon were pleasant surprises. The room was a little small but had everything you need. The bed was comfortable!

Great place for kids. Stairs are a bit annoying though.

Great location , and space. Clean and nice service.

Great location, easy access to aquarium and beach.

The hotel was great, quiet location. The staff was nice and accommodating. We asked for additional towels and blanket, and the staff provided. Unfortunately, about 10:30pm the bathroom ceiling started leaking drops of water, then I saw mold on the bathroom ceiling.

good location central to everything. Free breakfast is good.

Good hotel. Just would have preferred being told it was undergoing renovations.

a clean hotel in a good location.walking distance from the aquarium and cannery row

Great location, walking distance to everything, beds very comfortable. complimentary breakfast has pancakes, eggs, yogurt, cereal, etc. free parking and wine and cheese happy hour as well. Pricey for holiday inn but not bad for this location.

Always ays comfortable and close to everything. Great bathrooms and beds and very clean

Terrific location, very friendly staff, stay was easy and comfortable with 2 kids.

Great experience at at this hotel. Right across the street from Cannery Row and a nice walking/biking trail.

This hotel was clean, comfortable, and had great staff. The rooms were really nice and roomy. The location was in a very short walking distance to local attractions. I recommend this place to anyone staying in the Monterey area.

Very nice breakfast and close to all in Monterey. This Hotel is tucked away and very private from the public. Everyone we encountered were very friendly. Would have liked the second floor but it was not available and we could not find a place on the reservation to add this.

Spacious rooms. Free parking and free breakfast. 1 minute walk to the water. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. Would recommend to any travellers.

Windows installed are not sound proof. You can hear water gushing through the piped from above bedroom. We were in ground floor room number 105.

Beautiful flower garden, friendly staff, excellent accommodations, short walk to Cannery Row and aquarium. Will definitely come back!

Hotel rooms were large and clean. Like the walk around in white socks and your feet stay clean kind of clean! And by large I mean huge. 2 double beds, 2 chairs a small table a full desk and swivel chair, a TV stand , night stand , floor lamp, Crib, and all our luggage fit with tons of roomo to do flips (if your into that) the bathroom had a full window (with blinds of course) and an additional swivel make up mirror, large counter top for make up, curling irons and whatever else. It was very impressive. Now lets talk food... the complimentary breakfast was so good (with hotel free breakfast standards in mind of course) I felt like I was stealing! It had protein...did you hear that PROTEIN and a couple different options of protein at that. Then there was the wine and cheese reception in the evening. Let's just say they won my devotion on that informal gem. The hotel was in easy walking distance to cannery row. My 2 yr old and 5 year old walked with me and I didnt need to carry them once. Thats a great fast walk! Very close to a Starbucks and a cute ice cream shop for a late night treat. My only advice would be if you have trouble with stairs or are bringing heavy suitcases make sure to ask for a room that accommodates that. I would say a good half of the rooms require a small flight of stairs to be climbed even after you use the elevator. Oh yeah and ps they have complementary underground loading the car in the rain or beating sun!

comfortable room, nice hotel for the price, good location, lobby could use an update

I have nothing negative to say. Holiday Inn express is always a safe bet. The staff in Monterey were fantastic. VERY FRIENDLY. I love Monterey and will be staying at the HIE again.
