5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

The location was great. It was so close to everything that although the parking was free we didn't have to move the car at all. We enjoyed the friendly staff and the room was very nice and clean. No complaints at all. This is where I would stay again next visit!

We're so glad to hear that you were so pleased with the hotel! I agree, one of the nicest and most unexpected bonuses of staying at the Holiday Inn Express Cannery Row is that you can do and see everything on Cannery Row without having to take your car out. We're so glad that you were able to enjoy the local attractions while you were here, and really look forward to seeing you again!

Stayed here for 2 nights on vacation recently. Very nice hotel and priced really well for the area.
We were upgraded to a king room with ocean view. The ocean view was correct, you could see the ocean if you looked at the right angle through the trees. The room was large with a convertible sofa. Bathroom was reasonably sized and there wa snot much noise after dark.
The hotel is one block of of Cannery Row and from the hotel to the aquarium is about a 10 minute walk, There are some stairs to some of the rooms on upper floors, but there is an elevator. Rooms had a small fridge but no microwave. Internet signal was good throughout the evening.
Wine and cheese are offered int he evening and the standard HIE breakfast is available. Parking is free and covered, but if you have a large vehicle the garage can be a challenge.
For a visit to Cannery row this hotel is very hard to beat. Prices are very reasonable and the staff is cheerful and helpful.

We loved our stay at the Holiday Inn Express Monterey - Cannery Row! It was one of many stops along our way through California on our honeymoon. The room was clean and new-seeming. Comfortable bed, great sleeping, and a nice view! The area around the hotel is very pretty and peaceful. We felt comfortable walking down to around main street and back at night. We went to breakfast at a little deli close by and they were happy to serve us, then to the aquarium. It was a great city to be in!

Very conveniently located to local attractions without any noise. It was a clean hotel and room and the front desk guy was friendly and gave us restaurant options. We didn't spend too much time at the hotel but found it neat and clean. The complimentary breakfast was good (breads, some warm options, such as pre-made eggs, sausage, etc.), coffees, bagels, fruit, etc.
The only downside to this hotel is that is doesn't have an elevator which was difficult with a large suitcase.
I'd stay again!

Thank you so much for your feedback, we are so glad that you liked the hotel!

Regarding the elevator situation... I'm so sorry that you had trouble with the stairs. Just to clarify, we do have an elevator at the hotel. However, it only directly serves a small portion of our rooms. The rest of the rooms do require some additional stairs to access (a few to half a flight, depending on which room you are trying to reach).

Unfortunately this is one of the physical quirks that we inherited with the hotel, and there isn't much that we can do about it. But please do ask for help at the front desk if necessary, we're always happy to help with your bags. Also, for anyone who requires a room with no steps at all, please be sure to indicate this when calling the hotel to make your reservation.

Thanks again for your review and we hope to see you again!

We stayed 5 days in that hotel with a seaview room. The room was really sapcious with a fridge and everything that is necessary. The parking is free.
It is a five-minute walk from Cannery Row.
The satff is professional.
The breakfats room is a bit small and the food is average, but it is a complimentary breakfast. They even have a pancake machine, that was unfortunately out of order one .
Every evening a drink (wine) is offered with crackers and cheese.
We recommand that hotel.

Stayed at this hotel last year while the lobby was under construction. The staff was pleasant. This year, we are staying again because of the location. You just can't beat it. Literally, a very short walk to Cannery Row where you will find the beach, restaurants, went whale watching on a boat, ate at a Mexican Restaurant and went to the Aquarium. Drove to Carmel, Big Sur, had a drink at Pebble Beach and drove l7 mile drive. Perfect location.
