“High Level Holiday Inn Express with View of Ocean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for one night. The location is ideal in that Cannery Row is about 5 minutes walk and rooms facing west have a view of the ocean through the trees. I read that there were stairs and requested a room near the elevator. The desk clerk was most helpful and assigned a very large room with a bedroom area, living area, and a view of the ocean, next to the elevator. As it turned out, the rooms were terraced with a few stairs connecting several levels on each floor and wouldn’t have been a problem unless heavy luggage was involved. It appeared that the hotel and décor had been recently updated and was in great shape. Included was parking on a sub-level, wine tasting in the evening, a full breakfast and excellent wi-fi. Although the lowest rate was 30% more than hotels away from the ocean, the location and amenities make the Holiday Day Inn Express a viable alternative for visiting the Monterey Peninsula.

Room Tip: Rooms facing west have a view of the ocean through the trees.

We recently stayed here and we cannot wait to return! The customer service is outstanding. Sanjay was incredible, as was Alex. The room was beautiful and housekeeping did an excellent job. Breakfast was very good and Sanjay provided great dinner suggestions. The location of the hotel is the best. It is walking distance to everything. And parking at the hotel is free, which is very rare in Monterey. I don't give reviews generally, but this hotel and it's staff warrants it. Our sincere thanks to all, especially to Sanjay and Alex!

I was visiting my son who lives in San Francisco and we decided to take an overnight trip to Monterey. I selected this hotel based on reviews, location and price and was not disappointed. The room was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. It was an easy walk to the aquarium, beach, shops and restaurants. The breakfast was adequate ( though the coffee was not good). The free parking was a nice bonus. I won't hesitate to stay here again.

We stayed here for 1 night on the way from LAX to SFO. We were given the room on the highest floor. Although there is a lift available, there are still stairs to climb for certain rooms. Not very easy if you have a lot of luggage.

Our room overlooked the water with a nice view. Room was spacious and looked refurbished recently. Toilet was clean but we could not get used to the shower head. No slippers provided typical of US hotels. Also soap provided instead of shower gel.

Hotel is just 1 street behind cannery row and it provides easy access to the wharf and restaurants at cannery row. It provides wine reception but we did not join in. Breakfast area was small and we did not really like the food as some were too oily. Good thing was the hotel provided free parking at its basement.

Overall stay was okay but would probably stay somewhere else cheaper next time and then drive to cannery row to walk around. Ample parking space available at this time of the year.

Dear eatshopeatshop,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of our property. I am happy to know that you found the view from our rooms to be nice. However, I regret if your breakfast experience was sub par and if the condition of the shower head was a disappointment. We take all reviews negative or positive very seriously and your comments will help us improve what we can offer.

Again, thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback and our apologies for the shortcomings.

Sincerely,

Pam G

We spent only one night at this very conveniently located hotel because of the weather. Staff there are very helpful ... gave us a great dinner recommendation (within walking distance) and, when two days after checkout and a few hundred miles away, we discovered we'd left our cameras in the hotel room safe, all it took was one phonecall and we knew the cameras were in safe hands. We requested they Fedx them to a mail pickup in Washington state and within 3 days, they were waiting for us. GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE AND A GREAT PLACE TO STAY.

I rolled in to this HIE about 2 am on a week day, The Desk lady was a bit rude at first up warmed up quickly then because friendly and helpful. ( It was late) The room was pretty standard fair for HIE clean and comfortable, Cool location you can see the lagoon and the ocean, there were some seals barking close by in the morning. No food close by though that late and to drive a couple miles to a Denys.

Room Tip: Don't expect much when they offer you the "ocean view" still nice room and hotel

we were driving around the local area and called this hotel after 6pm and got a much better rate than all the web sites were indicating so we went on and stayed there. Our room had an outside door but other than that, it was clean and comfortable with a nice bathroom. Staff friendly and sent us to a great fish restaurant! would be happy to recommend this hotel
