Really impressed with the breakfast. Really clean and open area to enjoy the morning. Rooms are small and quite dated. Bathroom has insufficient space for drying yourself unless you do so in the shower recess. Comfortable beds.

We arrived at around check out time and were looking forward to taking a nap after our drive down from Napa. At first glance it seemed as if we made a good choice, boy were we wrong. We had to take the elevator to our room, the cheaply carpeted hallways were filthy and the elevator smelled of urine, Our room... More

I don't sleep well, but I did here. The pillow options were fantastic, no headaches in the morning. Good location, easy on and off... but a little too far to walk to the wine trolley. National chain restaurant within safe walking distance.

Rooms are clean, but a little small for a family of 4 adults. Beds are very comfortable and air conditioning works very well. There are a few places to eat next to hotel. Staff are very friendly. Breakfast was good and had a good variety. Please do walk into Monterey along the cycle path, it is worth the 45 minute... More

Stayed here as a family of 4 adults. Room was spacious enough for all of us as only stayed for 1 night. Beds were comfy and room was clean. Hotel is about a 35 minute walk from Fisherman's Wharf along the coastal path which is on the opposite side of the road to the hotel (just walk down the street... More

CLEAN ROOM, GREAT LOCATION; Room was a little on the small side but can deal with that as long as it's clean and it was! Breakfast was not wonderful but it was good enough and had a decent variety. I guess you can't expect the food to be delicious when you get it for 'free' Bummer that the elevator was... More

Very nice HI Express. The rooms are a bit small and a little outdated for a HI Express. The common areas are newly renovated. When you check in and you have the Business Center area right next to the Front Desk. I thought it was the Front Desk on how it set up. Great breakfast and lounge area to relax... More

I booked this hotel on name only thinking that all Holiday Inns would be the same. This was not. The staff was very friendly and I can't fault them for any of my disappointments with this hotel. My complaints are about what kind of room we got for the price. We were supposed to stay 4 days but ended up... More

Great place to stay when traveling up the coast, everything was neat and clean and there was ample parking. The buffet breakfast was very nice and there was a good selection. I would stay here again, very easy to hop back on the highway.
