Great hotel and close to the beach.

Posted Aug 13, 2014
Pros: Quiet and had a good nights sleep.
Cons: Would have preferred two queen size beds instead of the two double size beds. But one can only choose King size or Double.
Everything worked out very well. We enjoyed our stay.

Holiday Express Monterey

Posted Aug 5, 2014
Pros: Easy to navigate, pleasant staff.
Cons: Better TV choices, like movies. Better choices for beds, for example pull out sofa bed or roll away availability.
Location: We went to the aquarium and Cannery Row
The staff person that helped us was energetic and so welcoming. The hotel itself is older and has been remodeled. It is nice but a draw back to us was that we would have been more comfortable with a roll away bed and were told we could not add one. Two double beds were too small for our needs. I would not have picked this hotel if I had known that.

Not as nice as other holiday inn expresses

Rooms are redone, but older. The AC unit was extremely loud and the shower had no pressure. Not terrible, but probably won't stay here again.

The hotel was in a great location - close the beach and short drive to Monterey. Great service. Everything was very clean.

Everything is a little run down. Seems popular with traveling teams of high schoolers. The breakfast was so crowded and overrun and filled with teens and crying children and very long lines, I skipped it and went to a restaurant. Staff was friendly at the front desk.

CSUMB Orientation

Posted Jun 25, 2014
Pros: I believe the desk lady was named Mary. She was very pleasant and helpful. Hot breakfast. Clean room.
Cons: Noise insulation
Location: Everything that we needed was nearby. CSUMB was close too.
The lovely lady at the desk was very pleasant and full of information. She called the room after we arrived to check that everything was okay. The room was clean and comfortable. The only downside was we were above the pool so there was quite a bit of noise due to that. Breakfast was good and very convenient.

Holiday Express

Posted Jun 16, 2014
Pros: LEAVING
Cons: Improve on the above items. Lower your rates to less than 1/2.
Location: It was centrally located. No problems.
The bed was extremely lumpy. The pillow were flat. The shower only had one door, and the water went out of the shower onto the floor. The breakfast bar was a TOTAL JOKE. No eggs, no sausages, no seating area. Too crowded. For $240.00 per room (2), I could have gotten more out of Motel 6. I was totally appalled by this Holiday Inn.
