Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HamAdams66 Awesome Staff
The quality of customer service from the front desk staff was outstanding, friendly, considerate. The front office was so very clean, smelled good. It was a pleasure staying there, we would recommend it to all. The only issue for me was the air conditioner was a little weak it was hard to cool the room for my satisfaction.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PureBcoolnest Bad Experience
Our second visit to Monterey, and thinking that Holiday Inn Express would always be a great stay, this one in Monterey left a sour note in our mouths. First of all, the heater was not working. The toilet was not flushing right and barely gets water back up. The room was tight. When we come back to Monterey, no Holiday Inn Express or Holiday Inn stay for us there...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AllSpades Extra little things
A vending machine with the extras we forget to pack in our luggage like razor, tooth brush.paste, comb/brush, shower cap, hand lotion, Kleenex tissues. This would be a revenue maker and a big plus for travelers and tours. Many hotels in Japan I have stayed at provided these amenities for free to their customers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by S55AMG Seaside - great weekend
Seaside is 8 minutes to everywhere. 17 mile drive, Cannery Row, the docks, the scuba divers, the seals and otters, and of course the beaches.
Just a few minutes from the hotel and one can drive from Zero to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds at Laguna Seca Raceway.
Recommend renting a car from San Francisco airport and driving on California Highway 1 to Seaside.
It was the most memorable place we've visited in many years.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tailes This is a great location
We stayed here for two nights in early November while visiting the Monterey area. There is easy access and spotted the hotel from Highway 1. Checked in on November 31st, the young lady at the front desk was dressed for Halloween and they also had trick-or-treat goodies. I was acknowledged as a platinum member and received a nice goodie bag.
Received a room on the 5th floor facing the highway but up high enough to see the bay, there was also a nice view of a small lake in front with a number of birds on it. The room was a lot quieter than I was expecting and although I would prefer an indoor hallway the outdoor was fine.
Nice rooms and a good size too. Typical HI Xpress breakfast which was fine but it was quite busy on the weekend. It appeared that there was a family reunion and some of the folks, who were not staying there, came over for the free breakfast, not very nice of them.
A very convenient location, close to the wharf, cannery row, Carmel, Pebble beach, just great. We went on a terrific whale watching tour with ‘Monterey Bay Whale Watch’ and saw between 25 – 30 gray whales, killer whales, porpoises, sea lions, otters; simply amazing. We were out for over 4 hours, it seemed that every time we started to head in we would stop to watch another pod of whales feeding and close to the dock turned around to follow the porpoises.
All staff are very friendly and if you are going to the Monterey area this is a great location.
