      Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites - Marina

      New, clean, good value

      from

      New, clean, modern, good sized rooms. Good value for < $100.

      The only downsides are the soundproofing, which seems to be absent, and Marina itself which seems to be a half-abandoned military facility. Fortunately Monterey is only moments away...

      We were recommended a restaurant ("Dishes"?) by the front desk which was pretty poor - cold soup, plastic-cloth-covered tables in a barn. You might do better looking for restaurants in Monterey than Marina.

      $$$ for your money

      from

      After seeing $$$ prices for Monterey Hotels, I decided to stay here. I was worried about the drive to Monterey but it's less than 10 minutes away and you cannot beat the price. Walls may have been thin but isn't that usually the case. The hotel was very clean, room spacious, and staff helpful. Would stay here again.

      Very Disappointed

      from

      Very disappointed in our stay in Marina. The room was nothing like the picture on the web sight. But was clean. The walls very thin could here everything going on. Air conditioning unit ran all night long. For $179 per night was very disappointed in this property.

      Nice, newer hotel. But needs better soundproofing.

      from

      I found this hotel through the CVB and got a pretty good rate with them.

      The hotel is conveniently located just off Hwy 1. The traffic noise is mainly from local traffic. The construction on this hotel is new and lacks soundproofing in the walls. Be warned...do not accept rooms on the lower (basement) floor. You will likely get all of the noise from the lobby and breakfast area starting at 5am.

      The staff and manager were very friendly. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the spa is very nicely done too.

      Also, there is no pool. I liked the breakfast, it is one of the best I have had at hotels. The fruit at the front desk is very fresh and a great snack for your travels in Monterey.

      Wonderful hotel!

      from

      We had an enjoyable 2 night stay at this very new, very clean and large room hotel. What a find as it is only 10 minutes from the Monterey Fisherman's Wharf at half the cost of a Monterey hotel! The hotel staff were very friendly, the continental breakfast room was lovely and spacious and the laundry room was right next to the lobby. We would highly recommend this hotel!

      Excellent stay

      from

      I had an excellent stay at the hotel on 29 January 2004. It is almost new, clean, nicely appointed, and had free internet access. Staff was particularly helpful with directions, maps and restaurant recommendations. I also had problems accessing the internet initially.

      They promptly diagosed the problem and let me borrow a connection cable that worked. I would stay here again without question.

      Loved the Holiday Inn Express

      from

      What a wonderful hotel! Our guestroom was brand new and beautiful. Our stay included free coffee, high speed internet iconnection, hairdryer, iron, and a wonderful breakfast. The staff was so friendly and helpful.

      Great!@

      from

      I am a Government employee and stay here just about every week. It's probably one of the best Holiday Inn Express I have stayed in and the rooms new, clean and have free high speed connectivity.

      Service was horrible

      from

      This hotel was horrible! When I had arrived, I was given a room that was already used. Then when I requested another room, they told me that they were all booked and they didn't have one. There was no extra effort taken by the hotel to accomodate me. Then after some more prodding, the receptionist realized that there was another room available for me to use. Plus I had reserved a suite. The suite turned out to be a guestroom with a couch. The only thing good at this hotel was the express breakfast. Other than that, this place is not worth your money or your time. I will never stay there again!

      Great new hotel

      from

      This is a new hotel with realy nice furnishings and landscaping. Yes, it a few min. from downtown Monterey and Carmel but it feels so nice being away from the traffic.

      the sate beach is within walking distance and a good jogging path circles the lake just accross the street.

      My rating is that this is a good bet for when the downtown hotels are crowded or priced too high.

      Good staff, clean rooms with tripple sheeted beds!

      ... memorabilia and history of Steinbeck and his work. I'm adding some of his books to my to-read list after our visit. What an interesting and talented man he was. We also drove through Monterey and checked out Fisherman's Wharf and the Cannery, both settings in Steinbeck's writing. The sunshine greeted us the next morning, and we were off on a drive along scenic Route 1 to Big Sur. Motoring down the highway we discovered panoramic scenery--rocky ...

      ... Pot experience. We had lots of things to try, and the meat was cooked right on our table on a grill. I had the salmon, and it was probably the best salmon that I have ever had, and Evie had galbi (a type of steak). The service was absolutely amazing; we were checked on by at least 5 different people, but it wasn’t intrusive at all.

      We originally planned to go to a German restaurant named Stammtisch for dinner, but we were running late, ...

      Heading south on Hwy 1 to Pfieffer Big Sur

      Paul had planned to go to Vacaville but at the last minute changed his mind and so we got up and
      headed out from the Outlet. Of course we had to make a stop at the Berkeley Bowl and the place was a madhouse. Forget getting your shopping cart through the produce section. Robert scored at the bargain table with a huge bag of asparagus with some cucumbers in it as well.

      ... some friends to the San Francisco Airport early in the morning and figured they would just continue on their way and meet us. We got Big Mo all settled and then we went to The Presidio for some sightseeing.

      The Presidio is located on a big hill overlooking Monterey Bay and has been the site for 3 major forts. The first was when it was under Spanish control, the second was Fort Mervine in 1846 which ...

Yeee ha, cowboy hats everywhere, popcorn packs as high as the rv, BBQ chicken and gallons of coke, national anthem, god save America, freedom to all and we're off.....
