Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Psychopuppy Clean and comfortable with great staff
Wonderful staff who took great care of us. Absolutely great place to stay for my business at CSUMB. The only thing not perfect for me was that they are not pet-friendly, and I like to travel with my dog.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by eirewolf74 Great location and service
Some of the A/C units in the rooms can be a bit loud, but it does help with traffic noise if you stay on the back side of the hotel. Service has always been wonderful at this hotel every time I have stayed. They switched my room within 20 minutes the last time I had issues with the cable in my room. Comfortable and clean with a decent breakfast with a lot of choices. They also have warm chocolate chip cookies upon check in if you get there early enough.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Winslow96 Near Perfect Stay
I travel a lot for business. Marina was a wonderful stay. The hotel is quiet and comforable but close to amenities. The night desk clerk, I'm sorry I did not get his name, is top notch - helpful, polite, knowlegable, a credit to his craft. The wifi was a little quirky - but not a real problem. I highly recomend this location.

Enjoyed our two night stay recently at this property and its proximity to the beach, about 15 minutes to Monterey Aquarium. Good value if compared to other similar properties nearby.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kqlr36a The best hotel in the Holiday Inn Express chain
This hotel is a true gem! The staff are friendly and concerned about the guests. The fresh baked cookies just add to the warm home away from home feeling and the location is great! Close enough to Monterey and reasonably priced. This is a must visit property!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SLO Joe Check your room before you leave, no one calls you back
Overall the stay here was fine,. The staff I meet face to face was top notch. However, we remembered we left some children's clothes in the room and when I called back is when our stay there soured. No one could check lost and found, no one called us back when they said they would. Finally my wife was told no one found the clothes. Well that means two things. One the clothes were found and walked out the back door. Or, two the room was not cleaned very well and therefor the clothes were not found or found and not reported properly. I gave this hotel one star for the complete lack of customer service when we called about the lost clothes. The "not finding" of housekeeping staff I took with a grain of salt.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great Vacation, Great Hotel
My family and I had an amazing trip to the Monterey Peninsula. The Holiday Inn we stayed at more than exceeded our expectations. The staff was extremely friendly, the room was clean and spacious, the breakfast had something for everyone in the family, and they gave us great recommendations on restaurants and activities. The next time we come back to Monterey, we will definitely go back to the Holiday Inn Express!

This Holiday Inn Express is the go-to place for a comfortable stay in a pristine, friendly facility. The staff is attentive and knowledgeable. The room is well appointed, well lit and inviting. The bed is comfortable and pillows are fluffy! Best place to stay during a CSUMB weekend trip.

Our daughter goes to CSUMB. It's a perfect location to visit her. The staff is excellent. The cinnamon roll at breakfast are even better.
Quality and Price make this the best place to stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fitmom52 Very friendly
Loved the hotel and thr proximity to our daughter starting college. We were upgraded to a jr suite, however, there was a major drawback to that. Our wall shared the wall with the elevator so all night we heard the elevator, as well as an army marching above us.
Even with earplugs the elevator was audible! The room itself was very comfortable. We will definitely stay there again just on the top floor away from the elevator!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stevepup Friendly staff and generally nice hotel
When I first pulled into the parking lot, I was a bit concerned because much of the decorative ironwork fencing around the parking lot area was rusted away and there were several sharp edges present. I realize this is a seaside location with salty air, but it is a bit off-putting to see that.
I was greeted very nicely on arrival and the clerk checking me in was very friendly and made sure I knew everything I needed to know about the hotel, services, and the area.
The general condition inside was good, but the one elevator was clunky and jerky, slightly upsetting the people who were travelling with me. Also, in the morning, the one elevator was often crowded full of the housekeeping staff.
Our guestroom was clean and comfortable. We were not aware that the a/c unit was not on when we went to sleep and woke up in the middle of the night with a very hot room. I turned it on and adjusted the thermostat and the rest of the night was quite comfortable.
The breakfast was very nice, with a good variety of items to pick from. The staff was a little slow at restocking items that ran out and in busing tables, but overall, breakfast was a very good experience.
Overall, the stay was very good and I would recommend it to friends and family if they are travelling to the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Customer service guru1 Comfortable Beds and Excellent customer service!
Overall my family (if they come) and myself will come back to your hotel for more stays. The customer service was excellent and I think other hotel staff can benefit to learn from your staff and trainings. Other than us having small issues with the minor leak of our airconditioner, the Government price was perfect. My family and I liked the complimentary breakfasts and the workout room. I liked the location, close to Wal-Mart and gas station (Arco), and a very short distance to the clean and non touristy beach. I can't speak enough on behalf of the friendliest staff and their warm smiles. Thank you!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Debout06 Big thank you !
I'd like to thank the hotel reception staff for their excellent welcome and services. They gently proposed an alternate room due to an issue with the pre-booked one and price adujsted accordingly but the way and behavior they did it was excellent.
thanks again and I will naturally recommend this place to friends and colleagues.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by syko4sc Comfortable beds! Quiet area.
The only small problem we had, was the inability of the breakfast room staff to stay up with the demand for hot breakfast items. They were very busy, and it was understandable, but just one person was not enough staff for the amount of people to be served. A girls soccer team came in all at once, and that started the problem, which the staff member never seemed able to recover from. Probably doesn't happen often, but if there would have been just one more person to help, it wouldn't have become a problem at all! Great place to stay!

Perfect for a few days to see Monterey, walmart around the corner.
Maybe use real plates/cutlery at the breakfast and change (dusty) carpets to laminate floors. No inroom safe.

We've stayed at this hotel twice and always loved our stay. The Hotel was so close to Marina Beach and parking was convenient. There's a Jr. Suite available which makes it spacious for family of 4. We were greeted with warm chocolate cookies at the lobby and staff is always friendly.
