Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lisalynn Decent hotel in a good location
It's an old hotel, but it was decent overall. HIE breakfasts have a lot of room for improvement, but there are restaurants nearby.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Monterey family stay Friendly staff with a view
This place has a beautiful view if you are fortunate enough to be overlooking the bay. The building and grounds are very nice, clean and well decorated. My only complaint is the quality of the mattress that was in my room was less than comfortable and that the price is a little much. The room was very nice and large enough for my 3 year old to play around in while we were there. Our stay was awesome and this hotel is toward the top of our list for staying in Monterey.

Our stay at this hotel was enjoyable. Staff was professional, friendly and made us feel welcome. The best night's sleep I've had in a long time. Breakfast a little hum drum. Location was great, in the heart of Cannery Row. I definitely would stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by downlow A GREAT place to stay
This hotel was by and far the best place I have stayed. It is a small hotel, no pool or workout room, but the location is a block off Cannery Row and walking distance to all kinds of attractions. The staff is warm and welcoming and actually have a sense of humor. The "hot continental breakfast" was very very good and I actually went to bed looking forward to breakfast. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful. Pretty flowers and plants all over the place and wonderful sitting areas in the garden area. Wine and cheese served every night. Our room was clean and very nicely decorated. Refrigerator in the room comes in very handy. I just cannot say enough nice about our stay.

Quiet hotel in a very convenient location to Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf. Five minute walk to great attractions and restaurants. A great place to stay when visiting Monterey/Pacific Grove. It's my second home when I'm in town.

Great place to stay.The only thing that I would suggest is more towels in the bathroom. ( There were only three )

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 3BigDogs Great Location and Friendly Staff
We visit the Monterey Bay area several times each year and always choose the Holiday Inn Express Cannery Row if it is available. The location is great--one block back from Cannery Row and walking distance to the Aquarium, Fisherman's Wharf, beaches, dining and entertainment. The hotel has free parking in their basement garage (a rarity in the Cannery Row area), which is an important consideration for us. The only drawback to this facility is the many stairs that must be climbed in most rooms. We have aging knees and have been able to request a room off the elevator on a few occasions, but if those few rooms are taken the visitor is left to climb a number of stairs. Some rooms require the visitor to climb down a half-flight and walk down an exterior hallway, only to climb back up another half-flight to reach the room. That said, we still choose this hotel over others in the area and recommend it to others.

Lovely hotel. Built in keeping with the surrounding area buildings, which gives it a 'quaintness'. Everything here was perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fred 1984 Good position and room
We stayed three nights and found the location of the hotel ideal for the sights of Monterey. The staff were all helpful and the room good with a comfortable bed. We had direct access to the lift but for some rooms it was necessary to to up or down steps and in view of this it is good we were offered help with our cases if necessary.
Enjoyed our stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Redrich Excellent service and location
Really enjoyed staying here for 3 nights.
Staff were curtious and helpful from our arrival to leaving, loved the cheese and wine... nice touch.
Location is excellent for Monterey peninsular, Cannery Row, Whale Watching and cycling.
Very relaxed atmosphere and enjoyed staying there.
I have read that breakfast can get busy with limited seating, we did always get a seat but I can understand why this was posted as everyone comes down at the same time.
With a little thought, arrangement and investment, a few more square tables this could easily be solved.

Staff was attentive to our needs and made us aware of activities and accommodations. Wine tasting in the evening was very satisfying and particularly enjoyable. Proximity to local attractions was within two blocks. Parking was easy and accessible.

The elevator was so very slow. Chose to take the stairs for the rest of our visit although we were tired. Will request a room on the bottom floor from now on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ThePatriciaClub Great stay at Cannery Row
We enjoyed our stay very much - it is located in the heart of Cannery Row so we were able to walk to the Aquarium and restaurants. The hotel is clean, the rooms are clean and the staff was friendly and helpful.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Guest from Tokyo Relax stay in resort atmosphere
The location is very convenient to visit the fisherman's wharf, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and local restaurants. My wife and I enjoyed the atmosphere as well as well-mainteined beatiful flowers in the gardens. Although free WiFi was available, its speed was not fast.
In addition, it would be a bit tough work to carry heavy laggage to/from your room since the floor is cascaded due to the building design and you have to walk up and down short stairs in the way between the elevator and the room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GrandCanyon2LAstopover Cosy hotel for a great getaway
We had planned this overnight stopover on our drive from LA to San Francisco and wished we had planned a longer stay. The room was comfortable, clean plus staff were friendly and efficient. This will be our top choice when we come back to Monterrey.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Louie28 Holiday Inn at Monterey
This was our third stay, and as usual, it was perfect. I know that we will be greeted by friendly, efficient staff when we arrive. From there there it continues to be a pleasant experience in every respect.
Please note that we appreciate the free parking facilities (which is something not covered in your survey. )
A plus for me is the excellent location which is just a lovely walking distance to the Aquarium and shops. Also, the Inn is next to a wonderful Vintage store and around the corner from a charming yarn shop.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by raylo1962 Comfortable and well placed for a vacation
My total experience was outstanding here. The front desk clerk Sanjay and his assistant were helpful over and above my expectations. They helped with the luggage to our rooms and also made my room accommodations much more helpful to me and my wife's special needs due to the layout of the property that wasn't made aware to me at booking. I highly recommend this place for a stay at Cannery Row in Monterey, Ca.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mtn_Kahuna Don't eat the complimentary breakfast!
There is always a line waiting for the food because it come out real slow as if they are controlling it. The table is not cleaned, there are two at most servers, most of the time, they are not seen, The food is IHG standard food except the yogurt is horrible, the OJ are either too thick or too thin, the pancake machine was at another location from the breakfast bar, it you are no aware of it, you will miss it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kam-four not up to the Holiday Inn Express standard-poor cust. svc.
Motel lobby and room is clean, breakfast is adequate. Their pancake maker pales in comparison to the waffle maker at other Holiday Express Hotels. Had to find street parking, roof top cargo carrier on SUV that couldn't clear their garage entrance. Llate check in, about 7:15am coming the next morning after a long drive. We were denied late check out and had to be out by 1pm. I think 12noon was check out. I requested that housekeeping not disturb us so we could get at least 5 hr sleep. Front desk was agreeable. Come 11:25am housekeeping comes banging on the door. I called front desk. He said he'll take care of it. House-keeping came banging on the door a 2nd time. About 75 minutes later, I get a call from front desk asking if we will be checking out. I told them yes and it's not 1pm yet. I will not plan future stays at this establishment.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Prospero Poor staf service
The actitude of the staff at the reception was really without any sense of helping the client, when I asked for another room an upper floor, since I do not like sleeping at the ground one, they just tell me "no" without checking the availability. The same negative actitude when I asked for an adpter.
