The hotel and its staff are pretty nice. The days we were there it was cold and windy and were not prepared for such kind of weather in July. We should have brought some jackets and long sleeve shirts.

Spent 1 night at this hotel as part of a road trip from long beach to San Francisco. We arrived at 2pm and were told our rooms weren't ready but they could store our bags while we went out. We had just driven for 4 hours so the last thing we wanted was to get back in the car with... More

Stayed here overnight while on a family road trip to San Diego. Very close to Cannery Row and the Aquarium in Monterey. Very convenient location and easy to find from the main road. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean. Beds and pillows on the softer side. We stayed on a weeknight and it was very quiet. Had use of... More

The one nice thing about this facility in the Monterey Bay area is that the rooms on the backside upper levels overlook a lovely and quite large pond/ part of an esturary which has a great walking or jogging path around it and playgrounds on both sides plus lots of waterbirds to see which is nice if you have kids...

We stayed in this hotel for a stopover on our way south. It is located in Seaside, so you'll need a car to get into the centre of Monterey. The rooms are recently refurbished and a nice change from the usually rather bland Holiday Inn style. Beds and shower are good, wifi was excellent and the complimentary breakfast was a... More

The holiday inn express rooms have been remodeled and are nice. The rooms open to the outside like an old motor inn. The rooms have a microwave and refridg. Great location near Monterey Bay. The rooms can be very noisy with traffic and people talking and kids running. The front desk staff warm up after you stay a while, but... More

Two night stay in this motel - out of town and on a busy highway - don't expect a good nights sleep. Pool is small and poorly located - in the shade all afternoon! Breakfast made up for shortcomings though - my kids enjoyed the choice and we didn't need to go looking for food.

I'm writing this review at 12:00AM because I cannot sleep due to the noise. Doors are on the exterior surrounded by parking lots. People arriving all hours slamming car doors, beeping their door locks, then walking to their rooms without a care in the world about how noisy they are. The room is small and old and I cannot believe... More
