“Nice Hotel, Great Location”
Reviewed 25 January 2012

Easy walk to Cannery Row and to restaurants. Rooms are clean, front desk is friendly. Breakfast is good.
If your room is right outside the elevators though, you can hear everything going on in the hall.

Note on parking: Yes it is free, however, be forwarned that the parking lot is TINY. I am not sure how people get their cars into and out of those tiny spaces. I always come back to the hotel early to try and get a spot at the entrance, then I walk to dinner so I won't lose my parking space.

Thanks so much for your review. I apologize about the tight parking, and hope it wasn't too much of an inconvenience. Unfortunately space is at a premium in Monterey - thanks for finding a way to work with this. We hope you'll come and stay with us again.

The location of this hotel is great. A block from Cannery row, two blocks from the Aquarium, a short stroll to Fisherman's Wharf. There is free parking which is nice. The rooms are nice. The design of the hotel is the only problem. We stayed on the third floor of the hotel. You take the elevator to the third floor, then we had to go down stairs and around a corner and climb more stairs to go back up to our room. I'm not sure why the hotel is designed like this, but it was annoying to drag our suitcases up and down the stairs.

Stayed here with two small kids. Had the room with the couch -seems to be bigger than rooms without. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was great, rooms were clean, parking was free, everything was easy. The location is a short walking distance to everything and right across the street from the bike path - we brought bikes and had a blast. Wish we could have staying longer.

We were looking for a hotel close to the Monterey Aquarium so we could walk. The Holiday Inn Express was perfect and offered underground parking. Parking in Monterey is a problem otherwise. We were visiting just after Labor Day and they have an antique car show in town with hundreds of vintage vehicles to view. (Great!) The hotel breakfast is pretty standard "Holiday Inn Express" but the wine tasting and snacks in the evening was a nice surprise. They literally had a winery come to offer their products. (Not your usual Holiday Inn Express) It was fun!

The beach is right across the street, you are in Cannery Row so you can walk to everything, and the rooms are very large.

Room Tip: Some rooms are not accessible by elevator and we had to go up three or four stairs to get to ours...

We're so glad that you liked the hotel, and thanks for mentioning the wine tasting! We partner with local Chateau Sinnet for our special wine tasting on Fridays, and it's great to hear that you enjoyed that.

Thanks so much for writing in, we're really happy that you were pleased with your stay and do hope that you'll come again soon.

The hotel was just great: easy to find, easy parking, great staff, the room was nice and big and updated. They offered a managers drink in the evening - no ticket required so you could have one or more glasses of wine plus cheese and crackers. Our room had an ocean view, the courtyard in the hotel was beautiful. They offered a full hot breakfast in the morning got me hooked on that paper-thin delicious bacon they made. Plus omlets, cinnamon rolls, bagels, pancakes,etc. It was all good. Plus it was an easy walk to Cannery Ror and the Aquarium. The beds were huge and cushy and comfortable (I love a softer bed), the rooms were quiet. The bathroom was new and lovely. Next time we're through Monterey we're definitely staying here.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a single king size bed with a view of the ocean.

Check in was easy, the desk clerk was courteous.The hotel is decorated so cute. It's such a nice change from those boring neutral hotels everywhere else. The bed was enormous and the pillows had just enough fluff.

The hotel is in perfect walking distance to the Cannery Row and many restaurants.

The best part is that you get free drinks and snacks after 5:30, but the breakfast area is very small, therefore the location is perfect..

The staff were super nice and accomodating. The snobs who complain about the quality of the FREE wine should be shot. I'm not a whine person, but I tried all varieties and found them to be good, considering the price. The location is great. Parking is a little tight, but at least its free and in a safe area. The beds are super comfy and the internet is about 4M speed, which is excellent for a hotel. The rooms were super nice as well and look like they've been updated in the last couple years (or maybe the hotel is that new). The breakfast area seemed a little cramped and I didn't try the food because of a special diet. No Hotel is perfect, but Overall I loved my stay here and recommend it to anyone.
