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

We stay at a lot of hotels and you can usually get a good feel for a place from the attitude of the front desk staff. From the moment we walked in the door we could tell this was an exceptional place. Mi Jin was so helpful and friendly it set the tone for a great stay. Everything about the... More

We are traveling the PCH and stayed the night here. My parents stayed in one room and my husband and I got a second room. Unfortunately the air conditioner didn't work in or room so the staff moved us to another room. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The staff here was VERY friendly and helpful.

I’ve found that most if not all Holiday Inn Express hotels are quite consistent in their offerings Often however, hotels become differentiated by the people behind the reservation desk, and I was really impressed with this one thanks to Roneil. He went out of his way to make sure that the hotel met with our expectations. The rooms and bathroom... More

Staff was friendly, room was clean and modern, but LG flat screen TV was poor quality. The tv's picture quality flickers and freezes while watching. The mattress was too hard to our liking. But at least the room and bathroom was clean. Hotel includes breakfast, it was okay as long as your not a picky eater. Some folks might shy... More

This hotel has a great location for holidaying in Monterey. Marina is just north of the far more pricey Monterey and yet easily reached and also near Moss Landing which is a brilliant place for sea otters and birds. The hotel suite had a large fridge and microwave and coffee maker - coffee available at Reception all day and staff... More

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
