We spent one night here in August 2016 and it was great. The hotel staff was very friendly. Our room was clean and spacious, with a nice sized bathroom and mini-fridge. The property has beautiful flowers planted both next to the street and in the courtyard where there are couches to hang out. The hotel offered a nice breakfast spread... More

We were looking for somewhere for my family to stay en route from San Francisco to LA. I normally try to avoid Holiday Inn Express hotels and now I know why. Whilst the location was good and the staff were friendly the lift did not work and the breakfast was a bit grotty served in a reception area that was... More

Thanks for taking the time to review our property. While I'm happy to read that you enjoyed our staff and our location, I apologize for our elevator outage.

This is a good hotel if you are midway sfo and big sur. Though under renovation and little unlike usual hotels its still a best choice for a halt. Domino pizza is near and some eating joints too. Its lake facing and hotel offers breakfast buffet with many options which can also be taken along. Parking is free and ample.... More

We truly enjoyed our 1 night this summer. The location just next to Monterey's sea front and famous pier allowed us easy access to our whale watching boat tour. Most amazing was the relaxed and very summer-like atmosphere of the city, which the hotel staff also conveys. We had lost our luggage on the incoming flight a week before, so... More

I have been an IHG rewards customer for 10 years and I rate this hotel the best I have ever stayed in. Yes I've stayed in Intercontinental hotels and yes in plusher rooms/suites etc but this hotel had something so much more. The way we were greeted and welcomed was fantastic, with offers of free water and fruit, coffee or... More

Wow! The BEST IHG hotel you've been to in 10 years? I don't see praise like this every day -- if ever! Thanks for the thoughtful comments and this amazing review. Our partnership with the Monterey Bay Aquarium offering twice the fun for the regular cost of admission is a great deal, and I'm very happy that you were able... More

The Holiday Inn Express Monterey is truly the best deal. You get to save a little cash, while just a block away from the famous Cannery Row. Ya, it's a block away from Cannery Row, but think of this: 1. It's just a block 2. It's got a sweet antique shop right next door. 3. It's quiet. 4. Did I... More

We stayed here for a price we would have never paid for a Holiday Inn but it was summer and nearly every hotel was already booked. Pros: The hotel is conveniently located by the aquarium (about a 15 minute walk) and includes free breakfast and parking. Cons: The staff was unprofessional and rude. (Casual, personal conversations in front of guests.... More

I'm sorry that your recent stay at our property was a disappointing one.

This hotel has a unique look, layout and entrance as it is set to match the "Cannery Row" look, but we found it a bit quaint and welcoming as were the staff. Some rooms require negotiating a few stairs, so be aware if you have lots of luggage (although the staff is helpful) or have difficulty with stairs. We really... More

My family of 3 stayed here for 1 night while visiting Cannery Row. The hotel is in a perfect location for walking to the Cannery Row shops and restaurants, and also to fisherman's wharf.
