Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jimbo Rambo Lots and lots of stairs
This is a split level hotel. The elevators only service about half of the rooms. You have to take the elevator then walk up or down 6-8 stair steps to reach your room. Very poor design.

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by T.S. Best Night's Sleep
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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2Tired2Travel Good Hotel, Great Location
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.
