4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

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.

Visited Monterey with my dad, brother, and nephew for the Concourse de Elegancé car show & just needed a one night stay. We chose the holiday inn simply because it was conveniently located and relatively inexpensive (in comparison to alternatives) While the hotel is nothing special, I have no complaints, clean, quiet, checkin/checkout was smooth, plenty of parking, nearby food...

Good cost effective option about 3 miles/10 mins from Fishermans Wharf. Well appointed rooms with free wifi for frequent guest card holders. Located near In/Out burger place, Chilis and 5 mins drive from McDonalds. Free parking, and free if slightly chaotic breakfast. Would recommend for those travelling up/down Fwy 1 for a night

Highly recommended, the hote is nice and clean to stay. Delicious breakfast and close to cannery row and fisherman's wharf. Worth the money. Staff are helpful. They have a small pool but heated. I recommend this hotel if you are in the area of Monterey.

I am a platinum IHG member and a big fan of HI Express. The physical plant of this facility is not up to HI standards. Room was dusty with huge dust accumulation behind the nightstand. It's really a motel with entry to the rooms outside. There is only a single elevator for the entire 5 floor premises and there is... More

The good location is within ten minutes driving distance to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row, and Carmel. On the outer walls of the building, there were many mosquito-type bugs near the lights outside of each room. Some of these bugs were also in our two adjoining rooms on the ceilings. We complained to the front desk and they sent... More

It was nice and clean. We stopped for a night on our way back from camping. The room was small as was the bathroom. Breakfast was a nice bonus. Included hot food and was part of the stay.

We stayed here for one night on the way to Santa Barbara! Since we booked two rooms, they gave us a suite ( two rooms next to each other connected with a door). Breakfast was included in the room rate. Compare to other holiday inn express hotels that I've been to, this one was not very clean especially the bedding!... More
