Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 143 reviewers.
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! Tom M April 30, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A's Escape 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. April 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! April 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mr We had a great 2 day stay. Staff was very helpful and nice on arrival.. We had bikes which they had an area for securing them during our stay. All the staff were friendly and we would stay here again. March 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay in Monterrey Staff was outstanding, nice relaxing place close to all the highlights in town. March 12, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Close to attractions 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. February 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Good Everything is good,worth it,close to monterey aquarium February 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Location near Cannery Row 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. January 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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!! January 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Experience | Clean Rooms | Affordable Given Location 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! January 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Experience 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. December 31, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 30, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 29, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location - Clean Rooms - Great Staff and Breakfast We had a great time and would highly recommend the Holiday Inn Express. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff, clean rooms, free Wifi and a great breakfast too. Located within walking distance of everything on Cannery Row. December 18, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice service. We stayed one night on our way to San Francisco. The front desk guys were nice and very fun to talk to. I would recommend this hotel to others. December 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place to stay Great hotel,close to cannery row.close to beach.clean,great breakfast. Large room November 28, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The best This place is one block up from Cannery Row. Great breakfast and evening wine tasting. absolutely the best bang for your buck. November 28, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice and comfortable 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! November 23, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Run down place The room was dusty and noisy. where did they get the staff from?....... November 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 16, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location and good ammentities. The location could not have been better. Near the bike path and cannery row. Could walk to all sights. November 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by One night stay during weekend getaway Great room, great location. Atypical layout for an HI Express with the outside entrances but the room was very nice. Bed was comfortable and the layout of the room worked well. October 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Hotel Stayed here 2 nights. Everything was fine. Would stay again. October 29, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Location, Location, Location This is a great place to stay if you are looking to be a real tourist in Monterey. Sure its pricey but its right off of Cannery Row. The breakfast was acceptable, my biscuits were hard as rocks though. The facility and rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. Sure its expensive but so is every other hotel in the area with a competitive location. As a native to the area its worth spending the money to stay off Cannery Row when I visit outside of work. October 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great staff, location and amenities I'm a loyal Priority Club member and have stayed at hotels all over the world. The Holiday Inn Express on Cannery Row was such a great hotel. We could not have asked for a better location and a friendlier staff. The evening wine tastings were a pleasant surprise! I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to explore Monterey. Keep up the good work- we will be back! October 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stay This is a great place to stay and is only a half block off of Cannery Row. Room was very clean, parking was easy, and it was great being right at Cannery Row. October 10, 2013
