This hotel is near Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row. Serves a great breakfast too. If you like wine, they have wine tasting in the afternoon, with hoerdouerves. Small but rooms are large and beds are very comfortable. Staff has always been very friendly so it is my favorite place to stay in Monterey!

Pros: Great location- not too close, but not too far from stores. Excellent staff- they went out of their way to make our stay more comfortable. Cons: A little outdated (in comparison to the numerous Holiday Inns in which I've stayed).

The rooms are spacious and clean they offer breakfast in the morning. And the restaurant is within walking distance of the Cannery Row shops, the aquarium and the fisherman's wharf. We will definitely be coming back to stay at the Holiday Inn Express again.

I find Holiday Inn Express to be a good choice when traveling and this location on Cannery Row was wonderful. It is close to everything we wanted to do and right on the fabulous walking and bike path in Monterey where no car is needed. The room was clean, fresh and modern. The only issue I would have is the sliding door in the bathroom and the toilet paper was situated so that is was quite a stretch to reach it. Otherwise, it was a nice room with superb housekeeping.

Clearly can not beat the location and the free parking of this property. Not originally a HIE property so not what you might expect in terms of amenities and room sizes. Our room had 2 doubles (not the usual Queens) so a bit uncomfortable. A very small room and tiny bathroom. But, the room and bathroom was very very clean. The breakfast area is too small as well and was overcrowded and difficult to enjoy although the breakfast was very good. The staff was very nice and helpful and our stay ove... Read more

Excellent hotel, made up with the choice. The location is perfectly positioned close the cannery row, about 5 minutes walk, fishermans wharf is about 15mins walk. Free Parking is a bonus, the breakfast is good, small selection of cereals, eggs, bacon, muffins, toast, pancakes etc. Free Tea/Coffee. The staff on the desk were very helpful and gave us tips on where to go and showed us on a map. Wifi,Safe,Ironing board, Iron, Fridge, Cable Tv all in room

This is a great if not the Best Holiday Inn Express, We've stay in. The location is wonderful, two blocks from Cannery Row. Large,clean and modern rooms. The Staff was also wonderful, great restaurants suggestions, help with luggage, and just doing the little extra things to make the stay great. The wine tasting each evening was also a nice addition. This place helped make our Monterey trip special.

We have a King Room with Sofa Bed. Breakfast is included in the room rate. Breakfast room is big and the breakfast is good. In the Harbor we found a lot of restaurants. Many fish and grill restaurants. In the old city you can eat in many other restaurants. There are a beautifull park and a small beach in the neighbourhood. Nice hotel and place for staying.

This hotel is located on Cannery Row. Walking distance to the bay to scuba dive, sit, take in the sites,, restaurants, shopping and of course the famous aquarium. The hotel was clean. If you have any disability, ask for a ground floor room. Even with elevators to the other floors, there are stairs. Nice outdoor seating areas. Wine and cheese were served in the lobby in the afternoons. Could be a bit noisy if children are present when they run. Great antique store next door. Plenty of pa... Read more

This hotel is clean and well-maintained in a great location. The staff was super-friendly and helpful with acquiring aquarium tickets. They had a good selection at breakfast... Not just starches. Greek yogurts, cheese omelets, bacon, fruit, cereal, and more. Downsides: Our room was a bit noisy because it faced the street, but it didn't bother us. All rooms are not accessible by rolling.

The Holiday Inn Express, as others have noted, has a great location. Easy walk down to the Aquarium or San Carlos Beach along the path. Our room was very clean but located adjacent to the lobby. I could hear the lobby bathroom being cleaned early in the morning through the wall. This was a last minute one-night stay for us and we were pleasantly surprised by the wifi and parking and breakfast and wine? It's hard to beat at that price point.

We stayed here for one night and didn't really use any of the amenities or have their breakfast. Location is excellent and really why I chose it. It's set up different than I expected with an interior courtyard and rooms that open to the outside. Free parking is included in an underground garage, which is also a huge plus. As a few others have mentioned, you will need to negotiate some stairs with your luggage, or at least we did on the second floor. Most importantly, our room and al... Read more

My family of 3 stayed here for 1 night while visiting Cannery Row. The hotel is in a perfect location for walking to the Cannery Row shops and restaurants, and also to fisherman's wharf. The hotel appears to have been renovated recently, as the lobby and rooms looked clean and fresh. Our room was somewhat large with 1 king bed and a sleeper sofa, along with a small fridge and safe (no microwave, unfortunately).

This hotel has a unique look, layout and entrance as it is set to match the "Cannery Row" look, but we found it a bit quaint and welcoming as were the staff. Some rooms require negotiating a few stairs, so be aware if you have lots of luggage (although the staff is helpful) or have difficulty with stairs. We really enjoyed the convenience of walking to Cannery Row shops, restaurants and attractions as well as Fisherman's Wharf along a great trail system. We would definitely stay again if we ret...

Hotel 2 of 14 on California trip. Although I thought this was expensive I thoroughly enjoyed our nights stay. We bagged the last available room which was for mobility access so on the ground floor. Huge comfortable bed, tasteful, great air con, lovely staff and perfect location. Breakfast was adequate My only criticism was the sliding door to the bathroom which could of closed better and was noisy.

We stayed here for a price we would have never paid for a Holiday Inn but it was summer and nearly every hotel was already booked. Pros: The hotel is conveniently located by the aquarium (about a 15 minute walk) and includes free breakfast and parking. Cons: The staff was unprofessional and rude. (Casual, personal conversations in front of guests. A 20-something male front desk employee made a not-so sly innuendo toward me. Another was telling his buddy about a fight he got in.) It's an old buil... Read more

The Holiday Inn Express Monterey is truly the best deal. You get to save a little cash, while just a block away from the famous Cannery Row. Ya, it's a block away from Cannery Row, but think of this: 1. It's just a block 2. It's got a sweet antique shop right next door. 3. It's quiet. 4. Did I say it's quiet? (Cannery Row is a typical tourist trap. Sure, you want to see it, but do you want to hear it?) 5. It's a five minute walk to the Aquarium 6. It's very clean. 7. Parking. Free parking. Fr... Read more

We truly enjoyed our 1 night this summer. The location just next to Monterey's sea front and famous pier allowed us easy access to our whale watching boat tour. Most amazing was the relaxed and very summer-like atmosphere of the city, which the hotel staff also conveys. We had lost our luggage on the incoming flight a week before, so the hotel manager supported us in making phone calls to airlines and offering help. Room was large, modern, very clean and great value. We found this to be by far t... Read more

Clean, spacious rooms with the best bed EVER. There is a vacant lot across the street, so some rooms have an ocean view, at least until they build there. It is 2 short blocks to the water, 4 blocks to Cannery Row, and even a beautiful and easy (though long-ish) walk to Fisherman's Wharf (there is a trolley stop nearby also.) Many reviewers have complained about the elevator and the stairs. Yes, the elevator is broken, but the staff bent over backwards to offer free bellhop service for luggage an... Read more

What a nice hotel. Really amazing staff and had a very nice feel to the place. Didn't feel like your standard chain hotel. It had a nice courtyard and they served a free breakfast in the morning. Also had free parking. Great location and room was clean with a very comfortable bed. I wish I had been able to spend another night there as one wasn't enough. If I'm ever back in Monterey I would stay there again, no question! Great place for families.

The location is within very easy walking distance of Cannery Row, has a great breakfast, and pretty decent rooms.

I am writing this review, so that hopefully one would read this and take the advice for a much better stay. One thing that bothers me above all else is noise. My wife can sleep through an earthquake, but I sleep like a cat. Any noise or movement and I am awake. We were on the second floor right on the busy road. A driver went by with his Super Bass at full volume and the walls shook. Fortunately, the road got quiet as the night went on. Make sure to ask for a room off the road. The other nois... Read 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. Also there was no real breakfast area, it was kind of spread out across the lobby/reception area. Not a bad thing but just unusual The room was large with a bed and a seating area and a reasonable bath... Read more

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 a few rooms are accessible via elevator ... most require some stairs. Parking is very tight. Terrific bed.

This Holiday Inn Express hotel is located on the Cannery Row and it's close to for example the Aquarium and the Cannery Row Brewing Company. The standard HIE breakfast which is included, is better than the average US hotel breakfast (if there is one at all), even if the pre-cooked omelettes were a bit strange, but the cinnamon roles were awsome. The rooms are large, parking included and the location is good, so there is nothing to complain about.
