Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by steve927 Great location
This a great location to make your base if staying in Monterey. Walking distance to Cannery Row and other attractions.
My only "complaint" is the size of the beds--they are doubles and not queen--which makes is a little tight when traveling with kids and sharing beds.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rae929 Great service
My fiance and I were quite surprised at the size of room we got. We were quite happy with the cleanliness of the room and the customer service we got from the staff was excellent. The location was perfect as it was only a few blocks from Cannery Row and a short walk to the Aquarium. Some minor things were the lack of blackout curtains at the large window for a bit of privacy and the price was a bit on the high side. Other than that, overall we had an enjoyable stay and would like to come back sometime in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nj2014 Holiday Inn Express can be this great!
This hotel has it all. Location in between pier and Cannery Row, so close to seals and restaurants and stores. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Pretty courtyard with flowers. Design of the hotel in keeping with nautical surroundings. Comfortable beds and reasonably-sized rooms. Great value for this hotel this time of year. Underground parking. We have a truly fond memory based upon the feel and treatment at this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Love this place
I've stayed 3 or 4 times at the Cannery Row HIE and every time I have felt so welcomed. They treat me like family! The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I will go back to stay on my next visit to the Monterey/Carmel area!

IT had been several years, since my husband and I were able to visit Monterey. The location of this place works very well. We could walk to restaurants and local markets. Breakfast was decedent. The coffee seemed almost burnt. They only other problem was the room doors. They seemed louder than normal. However, all in all, I would choose this hotel again. I am a reward member.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sis & Bernie Unique Monterey Experience! Centrally located
This was an AWESOME place to stay! We loved the property - a beautiful courtyard with lots of flowers, outdoor patio furniture and nicely kept. A really unique & beautiful setting. Staff was so accommodating and friendly and made excellent recommendations on local eateries. Hotel centrally located in the heart of Cannery Row, Aquarium, beaches and Fisherman's Wharf. We will definitely stay there as our travel schedule permits!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hmmullen88 All around amazing stay
Had an amazing 2 night stay with my family of 3. The breakfast was very delicious. The pancakes were surprisingly delicious! The double queen room was roomy and comfortable. Enjoyed the option of soft or firm pillows. The on site parking was very nice plus no extra fee. The proximity to the Monterey bay aquarium is what drew us to this location and but the experience will keep us coming back. Also, we were able to walk Cannery row and to the aquarium with ease and took about 15 minutes walk time from hotel to aquarium with a 3 year old. All in all we would definitely recommend this hotel.

Great to walk around town, close to attractions.
A bit of traffic noise in front units and too many stairs for overseas travellers with luggage.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Patrick98020 Wonderful place, wonderful people
A terrific hotel all-around! First, it was within walking distance of Cannery Row, Fisherman's Wharf, and the Monterey Historical Park, which are the three reasons I came to visit. I had a very easily accessible room, just off the elevator on the third floor, and it was very clean and very well-kept. The staff was exceedingly nice, taking the time to always say hello and answer all of my questions. Throw in free covered parking, a great variety of foods for breakfast, and all of the other amenities you find at a HIE at a very reasonable price, and you can bet this will be my first choice of accommodations the next time I return to Monterey.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by shortstayer It would have been perfect . . .
. . . if power saws weren't screeching about 30 feet from my room in mid-day, making it impossible to do some computer work or to take the nap I needed. And if, despite a "privacy please" sign planted in the keycard slot, a staff member hadn't knocked on the door of the room to which I was moved and was beginning to fall asleep. Otherwise, I found the place convenient, functional, friendly, and reasonably priced.

The location of this hotel is the best thing. It's walking distance to Cannery Row & the Monterey Aquarium. Staff was friendly, and the breakfast alone is worth the stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Deven A place to stay in Monterey!!!
First of all, the staff is excellent, From housekeeping to the front desk staff Alex & Ben, they were very courteous and helpful. Second, our room (#217) was clean and comfortable. Housekeeping was very accommodating and prompt. And finally, the great location. Next to Cannery Row, however not to close where it's congested by tourist.
We will definitely come back and stay at your property and hopefully get the same room!!

Great, great experience at this property! I had booked two rooms online...we we arrived we soon figured out that we would prefer a bigger room for half our party. Alex at the front desk was really polite, and accommodating. The rooms are super-clean, efficient and well attended to. On-site parking is convenient as well.
The location is great! You are literally just three blocks from the aquarium and the shops.
Thank you to the staff for a great stay!

Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful, especially the young man who checked us in. It was in walking distance of the shops, restaurants, and sites. The room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was very clean. Breakfast was good and was offered from 6am-10am. I was very happy overall.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Angie43 Cozy room and great continental breakfast
We enjoyed our two night stay here. We were looking for a hotel close to the aquarium but not too expensive, and this place was just right. The room was nice and quiet, and we slept quite well there. The breakfast was so good that I couldn't believe that it was a hotel continental breakfast! I would stay here again. Good value for a good room.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by last timer 2nd visit to same facility
This hotel honored my request not to be situated on the noisy main street. The stay was a typical average motel and we felt safe there. However, the wine and cheese turned out to be a disappointing experience. The person passing out the thimble sized taste was more interested in selling the wine than providing a relaxing end of the day. This was even more apparent the 2nd day of our visit. And the breakfast food was again dry and disappointing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Charles54 Excellent experience
The staff at this facility is outstanding. Our stay on this particular occasion coincided with medical treatment in Monterey. My requests for additional assistance and cooperation from the front desk was met enthusiastically and with the best attitude possible. It didn't matter if it was 2:00PM or 4;00AM, they stepped up and over delivered every time.

Great location...away from the hustle and bustle of Cannery Row while being an easy walk to it. Rooms were nicely appointed and CLEAN. Probably wouldn't reccommend for those who can't do stairs well as there is no lift! The staff was friendly and professional. Thank you!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DeepElem1 Great Location/Staff
I've stayed at Holiday Inn Expresses all over the country, and this one was the best experience to date. For not much more than current pricing of hotels alongside major interstates, I got walking distance to the aquarium and Cannery row, 2 windows, a couch, and a refrigerator. Waking up in the morning to sea lions barking makes for a great atmosphere. It's a short drive to local farmer's markets, 17 mile drive and lots of coastal access. The parking was convenient and free. The rooms were clean and the hotel even has a courtyard in the center with outdoor couches. The staff was very friendly and full of information about the local area. I'm looking forward to the next opportunity to stay here again.
