The room was not in the registration area but was in a separate building. The elevator was hard to find and the numbering of the rooms was tricky. We saw a woman wandering around the 5th floor looking for her room - the odd numbers were on one side of the building and the even numbers on the other side.... More

I guess it's my fault because I don't like outside access hotels. I have stayed at Holiday Inn Express before and didn't realize it was going to be like this. Hotel was very old, musky, and room was small. We had to wheel our luggage through the mud because the sidewalk was missing. They were doing construction banging on the... More

Spent one night here and this hotel is just great for a stopover in the beautiful Monterey. The rooms were a good size with free wifi a real bonus too. Would stay here again if were passing through Carmel

I have long preferred this property in the Monterey area for its excellent service, convenient location, great breakfasts and comfort. Now it is even better with the remodeling they are doing of the rooms and the Breakfast Dining Area.

This holiday Inn sits in the shadow of a larger Embassy Suites next door. Although it is in Seaside, it is literally 3 miles from fisherman's wharf and cannery row. We had a hiccup when checking in because our room keys didn't work. afterwards maintenance came up to check on us & make sure they worked. Two double beds and... More

Spent a night at this hotel as my husband wanted to visit the famed Pebble Beach. Renovations taking place in parts of the hotel although this did not affect us in any way. Rooms are standard, basic but very clean. We had a room overlooking the ocean which was great. Breakfast was the usual HI express fare. Reception staff were... More

We stayed at this location recently during our recent two-day trip to Monterey/Carmel. The hotel is about 10 minutes away from Cannery Row, where most of the excitement in Monterey is, so location isn't a problem at all. There is some sort of construction going on at the hotel, so the front entrance is closed, but it isn't much of... More

We had a room that faced the ocean, although not close it was a good view from the 5th floor for sure. It looks like they're in renovation mode so it's a mixed bag right now.

I find Not staying "in" town always gets me the best deal. This hotel is is only about 15 minutes from The Monterey Bay Aquarium. It's about a 3 minute walk straight to the beach. Or, instead of the beach-there's a fantastic paved path-which you could technically ride your bike on all the way into Monterey. On the non-ocean side... More
