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...

NO POOL! The pictures show a pool, there is the smallest triangle!Our room smelled like DIARRHEA BUTT! And the hallway smelled like bad bleach. Our room is right next to the round about and there is no guard rail! Death is surely coming.....it made me and my family uncomfortable. The room wasn't ready for us and they expected us to... More

Worst experience I've ever had checking into a Holiday Inn property and I hold their highest level elite card. Tried to check in and had to wait until Ms. Anna decided to come out to the front which seemed like 20 minutes but was probably more like 5 or 10 minutes. When she did come out she disappeared again to... More

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.
