We truly loved our experience in Monterey. This property is within walking distance of the Aquarium and Cannery Row. The service was far and above our expectations. Our front desk clerk, Sanjay, was extremely professional, helpful and friendly. We would consider this the best service we have ever had at any property. Sanjay made our visit a true pleasure, and we definitely will be back!

Spacious room. Thin ceiling, can hear upstairs walking. The hotel was under renovation, dusty and lacking vital areas. Wish this was noted on the website as I feel that I paid a little more than expected of the hotels situation.

The place to stay while visiting Monterey Bay!!

Overall our stay was great. Not your average Holiday Inn Express, this hotel was much nicer and larger. The room was surprisingly large, it was clean, comfy, and it had a mini fridge! The mini fridge was HUGE for us, since you usually have to request one at these hotel chains. The front desk staff was great, and the location of the hotel was ideal! Location location, walking distance to shops, restaurants, and the aquarium. The beds we re a bit squeaky that's the only reason we didn't score it a perfect 10. Well definitely be back. Family of 4, leisure trip.

Budget Friendly Option

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
This hotel is relatively close to aquarium and shops. Still a short walk, but not problematic (and I was 7 months pregnant at the time). Great option if you want to save outrageous parking fees near the aquarium (hotel parking is free). Although the lot fills up quickly so you need to watch coming back too late. Staff was good and continental breakfast and afternoon snacks were great. Bed was the big downside, but that is just preference. I think the beds they use are just a bit soft for my taste, but clean and plenty of pillows. Overall a budget friendly option.

Great location, nice room

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
We picked this hotel for our family vacation because of the location, free breakfast and free parking. This hotel is within walking distance to Cannery Row, the Wharf and Monterey Bay Aquarium. The free breakfast and parking was a definite plus and money saver. The room looked like it was just redone and was nice and roomy and included a refrigerator. The hotel was also very quiet at night. Our only complaint is that the lobby where we ate breakfast was small and did not have enough tables and chairs. Will definitely stay again!!
