We spent two nights at the Holiday Inn Express located on Del Monte Road. It was a large room with a walk in shower and a, must for me, small fridge. All the rooms have been recently renovated and are comfortable. Breakfast was included and they actually had some healthy options. The downside was that it was 3 miles from...

Having previously always stayed at more expensive establishments like the Sheraton hotels, I thought that on this road trip I would try a slightly cheaper hotel as we were planning to stay in a further three locations and the IHG group have a good coverage in the USA. The hotel at first glance seemed to be okay, after checking in...

I was in town with my 3 kids to visit the CSUMB campus & the aquarium. The hotel is in between each of the locations which was convenient for us. The room was clean, but the sink water was cloudy. My kids did not want to use the sink water to brush their teeth. Luckily, we had water bottles with...

Good location; next to the lake. It is comfortable to walk or feed the ducks. A few fast food locations right next to it. A few minutes drive to Cannery row for better places to enjoy the view of the Pacific. Monterey is always cold - have a nice jacket with you. It is mostly winter in July :)

Nice hotel although it's on a busy street the noise level is low clean and reasonable fittings. Staff is friendly and no problems at all fitness room is good as well. I paid $100 a night so a great price.

Good location near eating places and short drive to Monterey Bay Aquarium. We thought the room was good, comfortable, fridge, safe, bathroom / shower. Little pool and hot jacuzzi also and a hearty breakfast with lots of choice. Ideal. Rating 8/10.

Chose this location as it was adjacent to a portion of an event at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. The facility has recently been renovated and was quite nice. The staff and service was great.

stayed just for one night for a wedding at Monterey. Room was clean, comfortable and tidy. good WiFi, clean towels, hard bed and good pressure shower. the hotel is adjacent to In and Out Burger. perfect for late night snacking. the downside is the thin wall, I can clearly hear what's going on in the other room. 7/10

Very loud noises early in the morning! No insulation in walls. Rude management. A 4 o’clock in the morning I was awoken by the hotel’s delivery driver who made as much noise as possible unloading his truck and moving the supplies into the building. Instead of setting boxes onto the ground, he dropped every one of them from chest level...
