You would think that a budget hotel in a tourist destination would be a forgettable experience, but I was very happily surprised by the Holiday Inn Express Monterey. It is a chain hotel, sure, but it doesn't feel like one. Tucked back from the street in a residential neighborhood walking distance to Cannery Row, I appreciated that the hotel fit...

We were looking for a comfortable one night stay with 2 children. The reception was friendly and very informative. They made great recommendations for dinner away from the usual touristy traps. The rooms were recently done up and there was plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 children with an abundance of luggage. The bathroom was in good shape...

The hotel is in a very good location. Ideal as a jump-off point for exploring Monterey. Lots of secure parking spaces beneath the property. Nice rooms with blackout curtains for that extended sleep-in. Join the wine and cheese cocktails at 5:00 pm, then walk out to cannery row for dinner. Perfect! My soulmate (who's into 5-star hotels) says: "It delivers"....

It's in a great location...easy access to all shopping and restaurants. Pretty typical hotel. Nothing fancy but just fine if you need a one night stay.. price is a little steep but that's because of it's location. Pretty kid friendly, no complaints. Bed was extremely comfy and room was clean. Have stayed here many times in a pinch.

This small terraced level hotel is perfect for all who wish to be within walking distance to aquarium , shops and restaurants. It's perfect for kids as well as adults. Very surprised to find this little bargain in such a wonderful location just a couple of block from the Monterey Bay.
