Had a one night stay on a Saturday. Conveniently close to Monterey. Staff was very friendly, our room was clean, updated and no issues. Linens and pillows seemed newer and high quality. Breakfast choices were generous and they refilled all options even 15 minutes before the free breakfast ended. Great price compared to hotels in Carmel/Monterey proper.

We stayed with our two young girls for a little more than a month after selling our house. They were nice at first and offered a lower monthly rate than it would have been nightly, which was hard to find in the summer. However, the cleanliness was questionable. The first room reeked of mold. They let us check out a... More

Haven't stayed in a Holiday Inn for a long time. The chain has improved tremendously. Was visiting Monterey Bay Aquarium and wanted to stay at a nice place that is not as expensive. This comfortable hotel is about a 10 mile away from the aquarium. Quiet and a .7 mile walk to a beautiful beach. First, the IMPORTANT stuff: -Bed,... More

On the nicer end of the Holiday Inn Express spectrum. Clean and up to date. Fairly conveniently located if you want to get out of Monterey and save a few bucks. Staff was cordial. Good experience on all counts.

I stay at a lot of Holiday Inns and Expresses, some are quite disappointing, but this one was great! The hotel is clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. I noted that the Front Desk Clerk even while he was assisting us took time to great every guest who walked through the lobby without seeming to ever take his... More

Good rooms, good bathrooms, good beds. I would call it "serviceable". But not a hotel for a vacation. Breakfast just OK, with plastic looking (and tasting) food. Interesting how they have made machines that make imitation pancakes in 1 minute without the need for a person. But the taste is plasticky. I will use this hotel again because the people... More

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend and I have to say that the service we received from the front desk was terrible. From the moment we walked in there were issues with our rooms. We had requested 2 rooms side by side since I have twins and they didn't allow two cribs in one room. I had specifically requested... More

A clean, well run hotel in a pretty convenient location for the Monterrey Bay area. The breakfast area tends to get pretty crowded, with spill over in to the lobby, but maybe this was more to do with our visit being on a holiday weekend.
