Up to par with majority of Holiday Inn Express even though this one may be a little dated. It was noisy but could be corrected with some door stripping or some type of insulation around the door to divert road noisy. Breakfast staff was continuously refilling low items or items gotten cold. Also one lady cleaning tables was very helpful assisting people to find items they were overlooking. She was there to help get anything you may need while eating, empty your tray, etc.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ricadol Nice stay
The reason we stayed in this hotel was mainly because of a good rate we got for the 3 days. Good location not too far from attractions .
Room was clean and the bed and pillows were ok , but the bathroom area was too small for the bathtub and toilet. Breakfast is very good with different choices and staff is constantly bringing out food. Cinnamon rolls were great. Nice atmosphere.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Raddad58 Convenient Location for golf outing
Holiday Inn Express is in a great location if you want to play golf in the Monterey area. The room is quiet, we had a room facing to the back of the property away from the main street. Check in and check out was quick. The breakfast in the community room is good, usual bagels, toast, cereal, but also sausage, small pre-made omelets.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rallyman Nice! Close to Monterey
Great place to stay if you want to stay away from the traffic, and high prices of Monterey proper. The room was comfortable, the staff was very helpful, and the continental breakfast was good. The only issue I had was the lighting over the bathroom sink was inadequate. You had to supplement the lighting by turning on the lights in the commode area, and even then it wasn't very bright. Otherwise, the stay was very nice!

We took my elderly parents to Monterey for a couple of days and choose Holiday Inn in Seaside to have great reviews. We are glad we stayed there and plan to stay there again next year. Staff were very helpful and gave great service.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Frequent Traveler110 I'd Turn Back if I were You
This hotel is outdated. The rooms are very small vintage style with only a 3+ foot vanity and equally claustrophobic tub room. I have been with IHG and Priority Club for many years and am a loyal follower.....however in my even shorter 15-year memory, I cannot recall a property as neglected, old fashioned and overpriced. To contribute, there was no water pressure on the 5th floor during my fiance's shower. A call to the front desk temporarily ceased the hotel laundry operation so that she could shower at 5:00 pm, not an unusual time of such request. Then the TV required a re-programming by the maintenance staff to get the satellite TV working. The following morning, another call to the front desk was required to cease laundry operations to get water pressure restored at 10:00 am. I do give full credit to the fine staff of this hotel for being professional and attentive and for doing their best with what they have to work with. However, I would not recommend this hotel to anyone expecting any more than a place to bunk late at night. This property is not suitable for those seeking a contemporary equipped hotel at a reasonable price. Thank goodness for the great staff here who hold everything together.
