We stopped here for a night between San Francisco and LA, this was a great location as near to the beach, although we were a bit disappointed with the beach!
Motel style hotel and we had a nice quiet room on the top floor overlooking the lake.
Car parking was plentiful.
Breakfast was great, good selection including biscuits, gravy and pastries!
We used also made good use of the jacuzzi and pool which was an added bonus.
If you're going out to eat, Chili's is only a few minutes walk.

Needed a nice quick getaway to the coast especially with all the craziness going on. This hotel is walking distance to Cannery Row, Pacific Grove, and the beaches. Everything is outdoors to get to your room. We had the bottom floor room which I don’t recommend because you can hear the cars passing by. I don’t recommend it if you want a nice and quiet room and can take the stairs. The room was cleaned and they do provide all the bathroom necessity other than floss. Normally there would be hot breakfast but with this Covid-19 virus we fill out what we want the night before and pick it up in the morning. You get choices of danishes, muffins, cereal, fruit, juices and milk. I did wish they would have a protein option but completely understand during this crazy time. Also, they have a filter water station, so you can bring your own water bottle. Would stay here again when I’m in Monterey.

This hotel is in a great location within walking distance to Cannery Row, Monterey Aquarium, Fisherman’s Wharf, and many restaurants and eateries. The staff was friendly and helpful with sharing points of interest in the area. I felt very safe on my solo trip; walking during the day and night.

This hotel has free on-sight under ground parking. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Each room overlooks the well manicured courtyard that has seating. Breakfast is included in the price of your stay. Please note that if you are on the top floor, once you get off the elevators, you will need to go down a set of stairs to get to the actual floor, then depending on the location of your room, you may need to go up a short flight of stairs. Keep this in mind if you have luggage. There are rooms on the first floor that I believe are handicap accessible.

Let me start on a positive note. All staff I interacted with during my weekend stay were absolutely lovely and really helpful, thank you for looking after me and making me feel so welcome to your property.

The complimentary breakfast selection was good and really convenient.

The location of this property is prime and explains the price this Holiday Inn Express is charging per night, with this in mind it is Monterey so prices are generally high, this does not however excuse the quality of this properties product.

The room itself was an average U.S. Domestic IHG hotel, it was dark, not that well maintained and had an awful smell, like a stale damp smell mixed with carpet cleaner.
Lights in the bathroom kept flicking off and on etc, basic maintenance that the property should be on top of. In saying this, the room and bathroom were clean.

Like some other reviewers have said, the sleep quality here in terms of noise experienced isn't that great, the greatest issues being road noise and noises coming from other guest rooms. The signs in the elevators pleading to parents to stop your children from running on the floors was kind of a give away on what kind of stay I was about to have.

We arrived here for 3 nights as part of our Road trip. Greeted by a friendly lady who announced we had been “upgraded” to a high floor corner room. Room 309. Well we went up in the lift with lots of heavy luggage, then had to go down 8 steps walk along a bit then go up 8 steps. The room was large but very old and outdated with battered furniture, a tiny, very old TV and an awful view. I dread to think what a standard King room was. Bed was ok, nice pillows, breakfast was very poor, even the famous cinnamon buns were tasteless and dry. We paid over £900 for 3 nights which is ridiculously overpriced. They are charging on the basis that you are in Monterey. We saw loads of much nicer hotels and wish we’d booked elsewhere. Far too expensive for the state of the place. There is no restaurant or bar on site although that’s ok as Monterey has so many fantastic places to eat. The week after we stayed in a Kimpton hotel in Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, it was 1000% better and cost a fraction of the cost. If I was coming back to Monterey I would book a nicer hotel. This one could be nice if IHG spent some of their profits and renovated it to a higher standard. Staff were lovely though and hotel was clean.

We visited California to see whales. This hotel in Cannery Row was conveniently located for walking and driving to see the sites and for eating. The scenery in the area is breathtaking.
We stayed in a first floor room, which was amazingly convenient. We stepped right off the elevator without having to climb stairs to our room with luggage, like others in the reviews had to do.
The breakfast reviews had us excited about this amenity since we knew we were going to spend a lot of money on food over 6 days. Reviews made it sound wonderfully different than other hotels, but it was your basic hotel breakfast...nothing out of the ordinary, as expected from all the rave reviews.
The room was noticeably older with some updates and no view, but the king bedroom with a pull-out sofa was perfect for the three of us. The beds and pillows were incredibly comfy. The showers from other rooms beside and above us were so loud that we thought someone was in our shower. The guests above us sounded like cloggers as the noise level was crazy loud every night. However, we were so tired we fell asleep regardless of loud showers and tiny dancers.
Parking was included and convenient.
The aesthetics of the hotel were pleasant with some gorgeous flowers out front.
The staff was really nice and helpful when we needed a blanket or an extra towel.
Some fabulous restaurants in Cannery Row within walking distance to the hotel were Wave Street Cafe , Hulu's Island Grill, Gianni's Pizza, and Louie Linguini's. We took a short drive to Abalonetti Bar and Grill at Old Fisherman's Wharf and we ate at Moss Landing Cafe and Woodward Marine Market in Moss Landing, a 30 minute drive.
We went whale watching twice, on a small boat and then a bigger boat, we visited the amazing Monterey Bay Aquarium and the Coast Guard Pier, and we paid $11 for the wonderful "17 Mile Drive" through Pebble Beach. We drove to Pacific Grove to watch the gorgeous sunset and we walked from Cannery Row to Lover's Point enjoying the breathtaking scenery.
We flew into Monterey Bay Airport, rented a car, and only had to drive 11 miles to get to the hotel. Our stay at Holiday Inn Express Cannery Row was a bit pricier than we are used to but we enjoyed our stay there.

Stayed here for 2 nights so we could visit the aquarium. Room was clean but nothing special. Rate was good. Parking was easy and free! They actually had a warm breakfast with a decent selection, which was a big deal because most hotels were still serving COVID to go cold bags. Others have commented on road noise. We stayed at the front and when we first entered the room the window was partially cracked. Closing this, the road noise was minimal and didn't bother us at all. I'd stay here again but as others said, be prepared for the stairs. Location is great!

Stayed over on our trip up the coast. Beautiful area. Hotel was not what I expected at all. It’s more of a motel. Doors on the outside. Very unique set up. Elevator takes you up one floor but then if you are up on levels two or three you will be lugging your bags up and down stairs in the maze.

For the premium that we paid (over $500) for one night, I was SHOCKED. Legit motel vibe. I think they tried to update it slightly. The lobby and area in between the rectangle of rooms that is outside was okay but the rooms are basically just old with a new alarm clock. 😂

Being a platinum elite member, I was blessed with a high floor room away from the elevator. LOL see above. We were on the third floor away from a useless elevator. We were graced with the lovely sounds of sleeping by a very loud road and had the white noise sounds of loud motorcycles, and the gorgeous and breathtaking views of said highway and walls of other most likely less expensive and nicer places to lay our heads.

Also, you will love hearing all toilet flushes, shower usage and sink uses surrounding your room all night and day long. The sounds of small screaming children three rooms over is also quite appealing.

I think I might stay for a week. Thank you IHG, from a loyal customer that has been staying in your brand for almost my entire two week road trip. The most expensive night I’ve had was epic.

OH! I forgot! When we showered the bathroom ceiling “rained”.

We stayed four nights. The hotel has a unique design which helps keep things quieter. If you have any mobility issues however make sure to specifically request a room with out stair to access. The front counter staff was very helpful from dinner suggestions to arranging for taxi service to airport on our day of departure. The hotel has access to the main walking trail right out the front door.

The room was very nice and it was a nice location. However, although they have an elevator, you will most likely not avoid going up and down steps even on the first floor. Once you get off the elevator from the parking garage, there are only 2 or 3 rooms on that level - the majority of the rooms are down a set of 8 steps. Then if your room is across the courtyard (the floors are built around a courtyard on the lower level), you will have to drag your luggage up another set of 8 steps to get there. They were nice enough to move me to another room, but I still had to take my luggage down 8 steps to get there and I'm no spring chicken. While the location was really great, I would not stay there again. I'd find a real hotel with a real elevator that takes you to more than 2 or 3 rooms LOL.
