My wife and I don't stay at the Holiday Inn much but needed a hub because we were visiting the State Prison in Solidad. We had a few minor issues, drain plug in the tub stuck, toilet stopped up but these were fixed efficiently and quickly. The most amazing part of the stay is the front desk folks were phenomenal....

All of the modern amenities that a hotel should have + friendly staff and peaceful setting. It is close to the HWY access but the HWY noise doesn't creep into the hotel at all. Close to In N Out Burger too for a quick and easy meal. I have stayed here dozens of times since 2011 and every time it... More

The toilet backed up in the shower and the water went from hot and cold the entire shower . The location was great, convenient to dining,shopping and the race track. The privacy in the rooms was very good and there is ample parking .

This is near most of the Monterey County government buildings (i.e. a mile or so away), so it is good if you are staying in the area and want to be near them. If you are wanting to see the ocean, or do your typical Monterey tourist activities, I would suggest looking at the Holiday Inn Express - Cannery Row... More

The Holiday Inn Express in Salinas offers comfortable, clean, and very modern rooms. The bed was extremely comfortable and the linens were high quality, with a choice of clearly labeled firm and soft pillows. Breakfast was excellent, with a nice variety of hot and cold items, cereals, fresh fruits, warm cinnamon rolls, coffee, teas, cocoa, and juices. There is free... More

We visited Salinas for our Grandson's football game. This hotel was fabulous. The staff was so friendly, the room was clean and quiet and the location was right off the freeway in a safe, convenient neighborhood. The breakfast was great, just what we needed before getting back on the road. They always have their famous cinnamon roles and they were... More

This Holiday Inn has a great price and is not too far from Monterey. Salinas is not a great area, but there are some good restaurants in the old town area. The room was quiet, clean, and comfortable, with dependable free WiFi. The styling is updated, though the rooms show just a little bit of age (e.g. some rust in... More

This is an average hotel, and better then most in Salinas. Staff are polite and eager to help, and it has a breakfast room with breakfast provided for the price. Rooms are average, clean, and many face an agricultural field off the back of the property so it's nice and quiet. The bath towels are very thin and need replacing... More

Salinas was as close as we could get to Monterey during a major event. This property is just off the exit from 101 and very accessible. It was only 20 miles to Monterey where we went for dinner. This hotel was exactly what I expected: Clean, well kept, everything worked, free wifi, decent breakfast, comfortable beds, reasonable price. We like... More

Everything about this hotel was great from the check-in clerk, to the cleanliness of the room and the convenient location. I came up from Fresno to attend the Swiss Picnic at the Swiss Rifle Club with my cousin who lives in Gonzales. I have stayed at this hotel for the past few years and plan to stay here again next...
