My original room was way too noisy with foot traffic outside my door and I had a ask for another room after one nite. The second room was too noisy because of street traffic and I was forced to ask for another room. Jose at the front desk was more than accommodating during all this and I finally ended up... More

We only stayed one night. Staff were friendly and efficient, room very clean and comfortable, breakfast included is a plus. Free parking undercover. Close walking distance to shops and attractions. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Great location within walking distance of cannery road, rooms were clean & well decorated. Beds comfy. Free wine & cheese in the evening. Breakfast was ok. Staff friendly & helpful. Bit on the expensive side for us but probably the cheapest hotel/motel in such a central location.

We stayed here for two nights while in Monterey. The elevator was broken the entire time we were there. The room was nice but there was no view either of town or the coast. The front desk staff was friendly but not outstanding. All In all, it was an okay place but not outstanding.

This hotel was impeccable - clean, breezy, quiet, and well cared for from bathrooms to carpet to bedding. Front office staff was courteous and helpful. There is a beautiful courtyard. It is close to the aquarium and all fun things to visit in the Cannery Row district.

Exterior opening rooms, designed around a beautiful courtyard. Attractive, very comfortable room with sofa and fridge ... no micro wave. WiFi signal was weak. Terrific location on Cannery Row and easy shoreline walk to Fisherman's Wharf. Our room had a peek-a-boo view of ocean. Enjoy late afternoon wine and cheese in courtyard. Only flaw to building design is that only... More

First of all, I guess this hotel was built and then at a later date became a Holiday Inn Express because it is unlike any other of the chain I have stayed in It is kind of like a motel style hotel, every room opens directly onto a main outside patio area, or an open walkway on the higher levels....

While I'm glad that you enjoyed our front desk staff and our wine and cheese reception, I apologize that you experienced trouble with road noise. Typically this is not an issue, as we are often quite popular with guests because of our quiet location so close to Cannery Row. I am sorry that you also had trouble with the walkway... More
