Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 71elky4fun Back to School Stay
This is the first time we have stayed at this Holiday Inn, and we will definitely stay there again when visiting our son who attends CSUMB. The hotel room was clean and comfortable, and the morning breakfast was also very good. This is what every Holiday Inn Express should be like!

Been coming to same property since 1995, even before it became The Holiday Inn Express. Current conditions, including property, staff, and services are by far the best they have ever been. I enjoy this hotel greatly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Philizay Close to Monterey Attractions
I liked this hotel because it was close to most of the tourist spots in Monterey: Fisherman's Wharf, Cannery Row, downtown. It's also very convenient as it is located right off Highway 1, which gives you easy access if you want to drive up to Santa Cruz or a spot further up north.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Class of 2016 Great Hotel
We stayed here for just one night and we had a great experience. We were taking my daughter back to school and we arrived super late/early, 3 am. The desk clerk, without me asking, gave us a late check out 1pm. That was really nice. The beds were comfortable. The room was very small, but clean. The breakfast room was very large and they had an overflow room available. I can't complain about anything. I've had a hard time in the last 3 years finding a hotel to stay at that wasn't; over priced, old furnishing, dirty, not well kept and musty. This place was close to shopping, restaurants and the univeristy. I think I finally found a hotel worth the price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by woodbs352 2-night stay 3-star
If I could change the overall rating to 3 stars I would. However, IHG has their own priorities and weighting of things, so by their standard, it was a 4-star stay.
The average-at-best pillows, noisey seagulls followed by louder room-cleaning staff in the morning and a breakfast that was overwhelmed and unable to keep up with demand is worth losing more than one star in my opinion.
Just so the reader knows, I am accustomed to giving 5-star reviews for IHG hotels. This one disappointing experience (which has more to do with the design of the hotel than anything else) doesn't put me off of the IHG brand.
The Motel-like (corridor outside the window and door) structure and incomplete light blocking of the blinds and curtains make this a property I do not intend to stay at again.
