Booked our room not knowing where we would be staying. Happy we got a gem. Room pretty small but we were mainly there to sleep. Location is great but neighborhood seemed a bit sketchy. Sunday evening there were some questionables around the lake but Monday morning we enjoyed a lovely walk around it with others out exercising. Free breakfast was... More

We've stayed here several times and are always very pleased. This hotel is very clean!!!! The free breakfast is great, the staff is helpful, you're 5 minutes from the Monterey Aquarium, and you can't beat the price!!!!!! We used to stay in Carmel or Monterey, little hotels are very pricey and very old.

Older but well maintained with comfortable bed. Good price point for excellent location. Five stories tall with elevator. Interesting architecture with a California twist. Staff welcomed us and provided a cookie when we checked in. Breakfast was good and normal for the chain. Recommended. Staff service is very good.

Room was clean and comfortable. Easy access to Rt. 1, close to shopping and activites. Will stay here again. Loved the breakfast. It was hot with alot of variety. Having a car is a must. Hotwire had the best price.

I was very pleased with the hotel, just a few miles to Monterey bay wharf, cannery row and the aquarium. The staff is friendly, you get a decent size room, beds were comfortable, there's a fridge, microwave and a coffee maker in the room , along with free parking. You also get a free breakfast. (You can't go wrong) I... More

My husband and I spent two nights here in February 2015. We like this brand of hotel because we always know what to expect…Well…not always! This hotel is not in Monterey but is actually in Seaside. It isn't too far from the downtown and Cannery Row but it is not in a great area. We were having dinner around the... More

This particular Holiday Inn has a back lake area with ducks and seagulls, a Chili's nearby and plenty of tourists places such as the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Whale watching tours. Hotel is steps (across the street, near a beach) from the Pacific in Seaside. As far as the hotel itself, it is keen, kind and a concerned service, social... More

The biggest asset of the hotel is the friendly staff. Always smiling and super helpful with any request I had. The room was super tidy except the little ants walking around, which didn't really bother me. I informed staff and they took care of it. I had a room with view onto the ocean side but you're not right at... More
