Stayed here after travelling up Highway 1 to Carmel as we wanted somewhere fairly inexpensive to Stay. The hotel was good, clean and comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was large, quiet and air conditioned. Breakfast was good and the Hotel is within easy reach of restaurants and ammenities - and a Walmart adjacent. Would stay again

We used this place to stay 2 nights while visiting the Monterey area. Clean and well maintained. No swimming pool, but the hot tub it's huge. Free internet. Family friendly and it's quite cheaper then the hotels downtown. Recommended if the 15' drive to the downtown area is not a problem.

We stayed in 9 different HIE hotels over two weeks and enjoyed this hotel stay the most. The gentleman at the front desk "Britt" was outstanding and very helpful to us, especially recommending food. The room was clean and the breakfast was excellent as well. Very close to all the action at Monterey as well as only a few blocks... More

Tried because it was close enough to a conference at CSUMB. Staff is friendly tries to be accommodating and helpful. Staff when I stayed knew little about restaurants to suggest. Biggest disappointment was lack of maintenance and care for facility itself. Spend a few dollars on replacing broken elevator tiles, replacing burned out lights in the elevator, cleaning the walls...

We were staying about 4 hours away for our week in California, but wanted to take in the sights in Monterey and Santa Cruz, especially whale watching. This hotel was a great price and went above our expectations. It was clean, the staff was amazing and super friendly and the continental breakfast was fabulous. It was way definitely more than...

Great hotel. First room was okay, bed had a huge indentation. But office was great and moved us. Big bed. Nice room. Great Bath. Good room price for the area of Marina. It's hard to find a good room under a hundred. This room was over that but worth it.

The HIE in Marina is great if you like the ocean, it's right across the street. And the staff and rooms are nice too. I recommend this if your in that area. There's restaurants and outdoor activities.

My wife and I spent 9 days in this hotel. We were met by a friendly staff when we arrived on a Tuesday evening. We were given a room on the second floor just around the corner from the front desk. It was late and we really didn't get to look around the hotel just went to our room. Once... More

Came to the area to visit my son who is attending CSUMB. Most of the hotels in Monterey proper were booked due to the Next Generation Jazz Festival. I chose this location as it's close to the University and I have stayed at other Holiday Inn Expresses so I figured this would be a good choice, plus pretty much only... More
