Well we just checked in and all seems well so far. The room is clean and well equipped. I will further update this review as our stay moves forward. The location is excellent...just blocks from Cannery Row. We were well received upon check in. I must not that it is quite a maze to get to you room, though.

I'm happy to read that our location and amenities worked so well for you during your stay, and that you were well-received by our excellent staff at the time of check-in. I'm not sure if the maze that you're referring to is our lush and beautiful courtyard, but if so, I hope you enjoyed you're time spent there! I also... More

We stayed two nights here and could not have asked for a better hotel. We had an amazing stay. We were welcomed as soon as we walked in the door. The nice gentleman at the front desk was very welcoming and informative. He gave us two bottles of water and notified us of the nightly wine and cheese hour (which... More

Much like other reviewers, we stayed here with family on our drive from San Francisco to LA. Room was clean, quiet and modern. Inclusion of a fridge was a nice change and the front desk even gave us milk for our toddlers free of charge. Walk to cannery row was shorter than expected and free wifi was great.

Stayed for 3 nights on our way to Los Angeles from San Francisco on Highway 1. Lovely quiet part of Monterey but only a short distance to the Historic walk and the Whale watching boats.

This hotel is very nice for a Holiday Inn Express - I was quite impressed. My room was fairly large with a couch and mini-fridge. A clean hotel with helpful staff and breakfast right next to the front desk. This hotel is quaint and cozy and I enjoyed my one night here. The thing about this hotel is that the... More

We checked in for one night on our drive from LA to San Francisco. The location is ideal, only a few minutes from Cannery Row. The room was spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable.

Stayed at this hotel for the Monterey Jazz Festival. This was my 4th return trip to this hotel and it is never disappoints me.

I have a major negative issue to report but first, I'll talk about the positive...the good things. The location is fabulous, near Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf. The flowers around the premises are beautiful. The breakfast is good. The selection is reasonable, and the coffee is OK. The seating arrangement is good. It's also used for the wine and cheese...

Nice rooms and very comfy beds, helpful front desk staff. Breakfast was adequate. Be aware that you encounter a couple of sets of 6 or 7 steps to get to your room. Didn't worry us but could be difficult for older people or young families with their luggage. We thought the rate was a little expensive - obviously other people... More
