Quiet and well appointed. I was surprised with a free room upgrade to a huge suite. Very comfortable bed. Staff are pleasant and helpful. The pool house is a really nice place to get a little exercise and relax. If you are using Google navigation on your phone, it will try to tell you that it is on the Right.... More

We stayed here last week, and it was fabulous. The room was terrific, the breakfast was great, and service was excellent. It was a great hotel, we really enjoyed it, and I would definitely stay here again.

I stayed at this Hotel after driving through the silicon valley area. It is a good Hotel in a very quiet location. It is a lot less expensive than the San Jose area, since the airport there fills up every hotel for several miles around. Downtown Salinas is an interesting place to visit. I would consider staying here again if... More

My husband and I decided to stay here for our quick weekend get away. The facilities are up to date, clean, and comfortable. We had a very spacious king room with modern design. Free internet worked perfectly and TV had tons of great channels. The complimentary breakfast was delicious with hot eggs, bacon, and biscuit with sausage gravy. The hotel... More

First off, I'm a business traveler averaging over 200 nights per year in hotels. I have stayed in numerous Holiday Inn Express properties throughout California and Nevada, and I've seen plenty of examples of them and the standards that each property maintains. Rarely do I actually write an internet review, but this location deserves it. I have stayed here close... More

Needed last minute reservations for a quick trip to Salinas and was initially very skeptical about the hotel options in this little town. Holiday Inn Express & Suites definitely had the best reviews and I understand why! Very clean, spacious and pleasant with free breakfast, parking and Wi-fi. Service was excellent and we were able to check in significantly early,... More

Really CLEAN place to stay. The pool house is amazing as is the staff. A very nice place to stay in nasty, dangerous Salinas. I stay there a few nights every week and they treat me well. Stay here and you'll love it, too. There is truck parking in the back.
