It is a nice enough hotel, when you just need a place to sleep, and are out the rest of the day. Also the staff were friendly, but were not real good at following up on requests. The toilet handle was finicky and kept coming off so we could not flush. We had someone in to fix it atleast twice... More

Our experience here was great, except for having a basement room. Yes, basement. No view. Front office staff member Britt was the very best! He helped us with were to go to eat, what to see etc. Always had a smile and kind words. The hotel would be great if it were not for the basement rooms. Great location, lower... More

We had a great experience from the moment we stepped into the lobby. We stayed there on the night of June 28, 2014, and the front desk staff was so friendly and professional that we felt very welcome. We were on a big trip through California and this was our first stay, so after we checked in we headed a... More

I am a loyal IHG customer and we looked forward to a couple of nights in Monterey area. Upon arrival @ 4:15 our room had not been cleaned. They gave us another room and when we went to it...already occupied! Back down to the front desk and another room. Once inside, our room was hot and when we turned AC... More

2nd floor is the main floor, and is tiled in the hallways. Rooms 113/115/117 are directly below the main lobby and breakfast area. That means every roller suitcase which is wheeled in or out of the hotel results in banging sounds in these rooms...every time a wheel travels 12 inches and finds another grout line between tiles. Otherwise, the place... More

Well, if you've been shopping for a room near Monterey Bay you already know what's out there - and how expensive everything IS. We took a chance on this place in the city of Marina near Monterey (just a hop on the freeway and you're there) and we weren't disappointed. It was clean and the rooms were spacious, the beds...

I've long relied on the HI Express chain. It has what I want - simple, no frills, and reasonably priced while being clean and comfortable with something to eat in the morning to get going. This hotel was a bit below the standard I expected, though it wasn't bad. First, I have to say that the staff was incredibly friendly... More

Our Holiday Inn Express stay on Seaside Circle, Marina was great. Ronil at the front desk was so courteous, and made sure any requests for extra towels, blankets or whatever were brought to us in a very timely fashion. His sincere demeanor regarding our stay was so refreshing, he made us feel very welcome. He inquired if all of our... More

The staff was courteous and quick. We had a really large room/suite that we had booked with priceline. The breakfast was standard, but good. Small touches were lacking. My husband noted what a poor job had been done on tile work in the bathrooms. I read the other review about the ladders near the Jacuzzi. I think they have been... More
