We thought this hotel was not quite as nice as we are used to with Holiday Inn Express. The rooms were very tiny and we were crowded. It seems to be an older hotel than most Holiday Inn Express. The pool was small and cold so we used it minimally. There were swarms of bugs outside of our door! We had to walk outside and around the building to get to our room, which isn't typical for this brand of hotel. We were a little worried about where our car was parked during the night, since it was dark by our room, but it was fine in the morning. Overall, it was okay but not as enjoyable as we would have liked.
Went for a simple over nighter with my family. Overall the hotel did the job. Wasn't fancy, but was clean and had a fridge and microwave in the room. We had a down stairs room and could hear the upstairs unit a little but nothing bad at all.
Seaside and nearby Marina border California State University at Monterey Bay, located at the former Fort Ord. Surfers and tide pool explorers frequent Seaside State Beach and nearby Monterey State Beach. To the south, the compact Monterey Peninsula Airport offers no-hassle connections to larger hubs such as San Francisco and Los Angeles. Drive 10 minutes east for racing action at Laguna Seca.
