We loved staying here it was great because the staff were so nice and the price was good as well! The only down side was that the room smelled a bit funky but not too bad. The hotel was really close to the beach and that was very convenient.

I have stayed at this hotel many times ( working sorta near by). It is one of the best IHG properties I have stayed at. They go out of the way to make your stay the best no matter what. When I started staying there, I need a fan noise to help me sleep. The air conditioner controls is on...

The staff here went out of their way to be accommodating and friendly. Britt, in particular was fantastic. Our room had smudges of white stuff on the (black) furniture and wasn't sparkling clean but serviceable. The price was a little high for the quality of the room and it frequently smelled like sewage if we left the window open. Free...

Usually we stay at Club Carlson hotels but this time we wanted to test Holiday Inn. Well, I learned that you better stay loyal to your chain. We did not get the bed type we had on our confirmation. The reason was they were sold out. We check-in already 5 PM and there were many arriving after us. We got...

Last minute booking, needed a room for that night only as we were just traveling through. We booked a king room and got 2 double beds instead. The toilet wasn't flushing properly and making noises. The alarm was set to go off at 4:15am, that was fun. The staff had no idea what was going on and kept blaming us...

This is a very nice holiday inn. The staff are friendly. Prices are reasonable considering it's only a few miles from Monterey which has exorbitant prices. The drive to Monterey is scenic. Hollie at the breakfast bar topped this trip. We thought it was Sunday which in fact it was Monday and Labor Day so the breakfast bar was closed...

6 of us stayed here for 10 days. The staff is wonderful. They have a large selection for breakfast and the breakfast room is nice. The rooms are basic and large, but extremely dark, and they don't have great storage if you're there more than a few days. The bathroom is a good size. Good basic hotel near route 1...
