We arrived at 8PM after a long day driving up the coast from LA, only to find a sign at the reception desk basically stating "I'm busy helping someone, will be back soon". This should never happen. When the employee finally arrived, after about 10 minutes, he was confused about the number of beds in our reserved suite, and insisted... More

This is just a so so property. It gets busy only during Monterey car week. The surrounding area is pretty bleak. We stayed here basically just to sleep. The rooms are sad and carpets dirty- we wore socks 24-7. The free breakfast is very animal fats oriented and the coffee is pretty basic with that cheap coffee jitters quickly following... More

Stayed here for two nights on our California road trip. The hotel itself is in OK condition and the staff worked hard and were attentive. Cookies on check in went down a treat with the kids. The staff are a credit to this hotel, we had no complaints whatsoever with the service! If I had known the area a bit... More

This hotel seems great when you check in and then things go down hill from there. There is mold and water damage in the bathroom and the walls have poorly done patches here and there. There is no pool, but there is a barely warm hot tub that needs a good cleaning (as well as the tile around it). The... More

I've been choosing Holiday Inn accommodations for years now. The only downside to this particular property is that there are age issues. Our bathroom wall appeared to have or have had a leak and the wall needed repair. Other than that, everything was fine.

Normally this hotel brand is very good about keeping its' properties well maintained and looking good. The room was small, very blase' and with a decor that was very unwelcoming. The room was very stuffy and smelled of mildew (maybe because of the proximity to the beach - about 1/2 away?). Rooms usually have a ding or two, this bathroom... More

Very clean, with very friendly Staff. Despite a relatively tight breakfast room, it was very efficient due to dedicated Staff Member who was able to replenish everything before it run out of of an item. She also kept the room very clean. Many people mentioned to book the remodeled 2nd floor, away from highway noise, so we followed the advice.... More

We've been staying at a variety of Holiday Inn Express hotels during our California road trip. All have been clean, some newer & more modern. This particular room smelled of mildew as we walked in, which was very disappointing. Beds are either old or cheap or both, but far thinner and less comfortable than all the others we have stayed...
