Nice hotel just a short walk away from Cannery Row at half the price. They also had free wine tastings several night while we were there. You could also walk over to the marina. Really didn't need to use the car much.

Very clean, great location, great staff! The front desk was very helpful and gladly answered any questions we had. My kids happened to leave some postcards they wanted to send, but we forgot them in the room when we left. We were pleasantly surprised when our family members received their postcards in the mail! So a big THANK YOU to... More

This hotel was in a great location. It was within walking distance to Canary Row. Nice size rooms and nice staff. My only "con", is that you have to use the stairs to get to the different floors. My mother is elderly and the stairs were difficult for her. So if you have an older person with you, or heavy... More

This hotel has a great location; although it is not ocean-front, we had a partial ocean view from our third floor room. But to get to our room was a bit of a pain. We took the elevator to the third floor, but then had to go up and down two sets of six (I believe) steps since the third... More

This is my favorite Holiday Inn Express to date. I love how it has the look and feel of the surroundings on Cannery Row.

The location makes this hotel. It's just behind the Main Street of cannery row. Which means it's easy to get into the busy area but the hotel is nice and quiet. The free shuttle bus stops just down the road and it's good to get it down to the piers and then it's a nice walk back. Free breakfast was... More

Our location really is quite amazing -- we all feel so lucky to be just off of Cannery Row and so nearby the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The shuttle is an amazing gift from the city of Monterey to visitors, especially to those less mobile. I'm glad that you enjoyed our amenities, property, and parking. Thanks for this great review, and... More

Everything surprised us. The staff is very helpful, the room is extremely spacious and clean, the location is great and the price is very reasonable! Everything you need is in walking distance and the parking is free so you don't need to worry about the safety of your stuff.

Whenever possible I stay at an HIE and this one of the best. I really liked the updated decor of my room. The exterior is pretty and in keeping with the location. My friend commented when we drove up that she didn't recognize it as an HIE. The staff is friendly and helpful. The location could not be more convenient.... More
