The check-in was slick and friendly, the rooms were fairly spacious and very clean. The TV had too many channels!! The location was excellent being very close to the beach and a short drive to Monterey where the Hotels are overpriced! I knew what to expect from HI Express and this Hotel didn't disappoint. Got a great deal for the...

I am writing this review only to inform you of HIE's policy to not have shower mats in the rooms as I managed to slip and split open my elbow, crack my knee and and bruise my shin. The tubs are very very slippery so be careful and ask for a mat when you check in. I do think there...

The room was very clean, the beds comfortable and breakfast was good although the breakfast room a bit small and was hard to find an available table in the morning after 8AM. The hotel is very close to Monterey and much more affordable.

My son lives in this area and I've made many weekend trips to visit. I almost always stay at this HIE but the past two times I did not. Big mistake. The first was an attempt to save money so I booked down the street at the Ramada which is a story for another review someday. The second was by...

This hotel is VERY close to Monterey Bay at a fraction of the price. Close to a nice state park beach. The room was very clean, beds comfortable, good fridge, breakfast was pretty good, great water pressure in the shower, really ... everything you could ask for and more than you would expect for the price. Once people started moving...

We stayed the weekend here for a wedding. It wouldn't have been my first choice but the wedding party had negotiated a group rate and I had other family staying there that I wanted to stay with. I had booked the Presidential Suite and upon check in I was told due to a sink not working in the Presidential Suite...

The hotel was very nice and clean. The front desk persons were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast ended at 9:30 with a few guests running late, the staff offered them what was left and very nice about telling them "breakfast is over". Due to my mistake of a last minute plans to stay here, I incorrectly assumed the ocean...

If your looking for a modestly priced hotel around Monterey you would be well advised to try here. It's just off Highway I and only a few minutes drive from the heart of Monterey so you are not far from the action and attractions. The reception area is spacious and pleasant and check in was quick and efficient - the...

What a pleasant surprise and a gem this place turned out be! Based on the previous reviews and our horrible experience at the HI Express in Frankfurt, I wasn't expecting a lot.

Hotel was located in a nice area to where we needed to visit. The lobby was clean and the front desk was friendly. We were in a room on the third floor. Upon entering, we noticed that the window was open, but you would have to be Spider Man to get up to the window to get into our room....
