Location is good at end of Cannery Row. Pricing is fair. Rooms are nice for Holiday Inn Express. The major drawback for me was this was possibly the noisiest hotel I have ever stayed in. Lots of stairs in main areas made of wood with heavy traffic. Don't expect to sleep in at this hotel.

We stayed here in Sept 2016. Our room was very clean, and it was nice to have a refrigerator and microwave. The room is very small, but if you enjoy staying at Motel 6's, you won't mind the space. The front desk was friendly and efficient. The breakfast was limited, but better than nothing. The breakfast eating area was very...

I have stayed at this hotel twice now. It's simple but still nice. A really nice amenity that is offered is the full breakfast every day. This breakfast isn't just coffee, juice, and donuts. This hotel offers a full menu breakfast that includes pancakes, eggs, sausage, cereals, toast, cinnamon rolls, juices, coffee, and tea. However, that is not the best...

We booked this hotel because of a combination of good TripAdvisor reviews, location and price. We stayed for two nights and we were NOT disappointed. On arrival, the greeting was friendly and informative. Location is ideal for visiting Cannery Row, as it's only one street away, and in a nice quiet street. Price was very, very reasonable considering everything. The...

It is a very simple hotel, but when you go to the Carmel - Monterey Area you don't stay to long inside the room. Rooms: my was a very good size, with a King Bed. I had a pic a others and did not seem as big. Breakfast: simple but gets the job done Bathroom: it is ok, very clean,...

Great hotel for a quick stay to visit the Aquarium. We were greeted upon arrival by Jose at the front desk who has a great disposition. Our room #212 was clean and spacious. The doors to each room face a open courtyard which is nice. The only drawback is the walkways are made of concrete so when kids are staying...

Nice room that was absolutely huge compared to typical hotel rooms. Wasn't the fanciest but the price was reasonable, parking was free, breakfast was pretty good, and the family walked everywhere we wanted to go in Monterey. Really pleased with the decision to stay there and would definitely choose to stay there again.

A great place to stay in the heart of Monterey. Staff were friendly and helpful with all the attractions within walking distance. Breakfast was complimentary which gave us a good start to the day. Would stay here again.

We decided to stay here for 4 nights over Christmas based on location and budget (could not justify the more expensive hotels). We were not disapointed, the room (we had 111) had 2 queens (each equiped with multiple soft and firm pillows) and was large, modern and very clean, with good wifi, nice big settee, study desk, big fridge, big...

A quick walk to Cannery Row, the Aquarium, and Fishermans Wharf makes this hotel ideally located. Plus, free underground parking, free wine and cheese hour, and complimentary breakfast! Our room was spacious and clean. Nothing fancy but very nice. Friendly staff seal the deal. They were all very helpful with directions and advice.
