The location is very convenient to Monterey Bay. Lots of stores and restaurants within a couple mile radius (very limited for walking distance.)
The rooms are good, nice beds and décor. They do not have microwaves or mini fridges, but management says they are being upgraded over the coming year. The room I had included an updated walkin shower (no tub), granite sink, but the facilities are very poor. The sidewalks are very dirty, there are dirty plastic flowers in the window boxes. The rooms look over the highway or the parking lot. The rooms are very noisy, can hear the buses beeping as they back up all morning long.
The breakfast is a standard holiday inn breakfast.
I had difficulties with my room and it was impossible to reach a manager for over 48 hours. The staff was unable to assist and management was unavailable.
If you need a cheap room in the M Bay area it is decent. If you can stay somewhere else, I would chose somewhere else. This property does not compare to the standard Holiday Inn Express Brand. It feels more like an OLD Holiday Inn from 20 years ago.
