Holiday Inn Express @ Monterey Bay
Ranked #3 of 13 Hotels in Seaside
Reviewed July 11, 2007

Stayed one night at this hotel with husband and two children (9&11). Had a two double-bed room that was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. Our room faced east overlooking the pool - I had read in previous posts that the rooms facing east were quieter as they didn't face the ocean/street. This was true although it was noisy until 10pm as the pool was open until then. Not a problem for us as we can't complain about people having fun - they were promptly out of the pool and quiet at 10pm. Breakfast was warm cinnamon rolls, various cereals, aples & bananas, boiled eggs, toast, bagels, & english muffins. Coffee and tea were also offered. Very friendly staff at breakfast and at check-in and check-out. Plenty of onsite (free) parking. Hotel is located about 1 mile north of Fisherman's Warf and 2 miles north of Monterey Bay Aquarium with an easy drive to both.

Location is excellent with easy access to the highways and free onsite parking. The rooms are kept nice and tidy and the breakfast(cold buffet & fruits selection) serves the purpose. Staff were very pleasant and the service standards are good.
There are quite a few options nearby to eat out in the evening. I would recommended this hotel for those LA-SFO hopping tourists via Highway-1.

My husband and I attended a wedding in Monterey and made reservations at the Holiday Inn Express through aa.com. The staff was very friendly and helpful, even allowing us to check in to our room 3 hours early. However, their helpfulness did not make up for the rest of the trip. We got a room by the pool on the back side of the hotel where there was also a lot of construction, so we were constantly disturbed by sounds from the pool area and the construction site. Also, one night we came back to the hotel to discover that we were locked out of our room because the safety latch had somehow been pushed back over the door. We had to call a maintenance man who ended up just taking a hammer to it and breaking it off so we could get back into our room. Not a great experience. All in all, I think the hotel was really, really average, but considering we paid less per night for a 4 star hotel in downtown San Francisco that same weekend, I would never stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Monterey Bay again. It's not worth the money.

Beautiful mid-priced hotel, large, clean and well appointed room. Complimentary breakfast was much--much nicer than expected as was the afternoon wine and cheese. The court yard and grounds were beautifully planted. Super convenient; 3 blks to Aquarium, easy 1 mile walk to Fisherman's wharf and Plaza and surrounded by good dining. Staff was super helpful and nice. Will stay there again. Only negative; noisy neighbors last night of stay, but neighbors are always a crap shot on courtsey.
