Nice, clean and within easy walking of Cannery Row the bay and aquarium. Be care full of room requests if you don't like steps our room required going up a few steps but had a sliver view of the bay and a sunny room though a little noisy. The staff was all nice and did a good job of keeping...

It's a funky little hotel but it's a pretty cool place, seems new, very clean, really friendly staff, and very very convenient to Cannery Row. Yes even with the elevators you may have to traverse a couple of short flights of steps (not all rooms would require this) but, having read about this in an earlier review we were ready...

Love this hotel. We have stayed several times in the room with 2 doubles and pull out queen sofa bed. Room spacious, over sized, great bathroom, fridge is a plus. Simple breakfast but perfect start since our big meals are lunch and dinner when vacationing. Fruit available in lobby through out day. Didn't do the happy hour but its a...

We stayed at this hotel one night on our way from Santa Barbara to San Francisco. The hotel is located along the quiet Wave Street (almost at the Cannery Row and Wave Street junction). It is an excellent location as the Cannery Row waterfront with great dining and Monterey Aquarium is just around the corner. The hotel building structure is...

Pluses: Location + free parking (walk 10 minutes to the aquarium!) Minuses: Service + mostly gross free breakfast For a holiday weekend, we paid the rack rate per night through Orbitz. Upon check-in, Sanjay was extremely unhelpful and told me that I would get no points for our stay. He refused to even look up my priority club number. For...

I'm very sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your stay, although it does sound as though various aspects of the hotel did suit you well.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Monterey CA because it has a wonderful location, walking distance to the Aquarium. The place is like most Express hotels, clean, fairly priced and with a real breakfast. The staff at this hotel were exceptional. My only complaint is that some of the rooms in the back require dragging your suitcase up...

When we first arrived I thought the hotel was adorable. It fits into the beach theme perfectly. The front desk agent was very nice and professional.

Thank you for your nice review, we're so glad that you liked the property!

Ideally located not on but next to Cannery Row midway from downtown and the aquarium. Get a high floor room. Free parking is a ++ in Monterrey. Do not miss the antique emporium next door up street, one of the best in North CA and reasonably priced.

This is a nice, clean hotel within walking distance to the aquarium and all cannery row has to offer. The hot breakfast in the morning is really good and a nice bonus.The parking is a bit tight if you have a big car like we do, but not impossible.
