We had a two queen bed room (because it was cheaper than the king room) and the lighting was abysmal. Only one lamp between the two beds and it was very tiny so could not be used to see anything on the opposite side of the bed. No table on the opposite side of the bed either. It is a... More

I spent one night here on the way to Napa, from San Simeon. The hotel is fairly new and very clean. The rooms are a good size. Bathroom is large with plenty of room for two people to get ready. Wet bar area and long desk/TV area are a plus. The hotel is off 101 so I requested a room... More

We found this hotel to be clean and comfortable with a helpful and courteous staff. We stayed in a suite with a king bed and a hide-a-bed couch. The suite was very quiet and had everything we needed for our two overnight stays. The breakfasts provided were not exactly healthy, but were more healthy and offered more variety than we... More

We stayed one night while driving from Santa Barbara to San Francisco. This place was a very pleasant surprise. Check-in clerk very courteous and honored my request for a quiet room away from ice machines. The room was modern, very clean and quite large. A real gem. Breakfast was more than adequate and I noticed children enjoying the "pancake making... More

We had planned a mini-trip to the beach but most of the Holiday Inn's Express by the coast was either booked or didn't have a very good review. This HIE in Salinas was very impressive. It was clean, the room was nice and spacious for our family of 5. We had a king size bed room w/ a sleeper couch... More

We only had one night in Salinas as we were heading to San Francisco. Previously stayed at the Holiday Inn Express at Paso Robles and was very happy with that, so we decided to try this one too. Very happy with clean and well kept property. One tip, if you want a good big feed at a reasonable price, try... More

There are not a lot of choices if you are stopping overnight in Salinas. We found this via TripAdvisor and Yelp. It is not located downtown - can't really walk anywhere from the hotel, but it is clean and they have a pretty cool automatic pancake maker at breakfast.

Having stayed in many Holiday Inn Express' ( I am a Priority Club Member ), in places such as Watsonville, Flagstaff, Carpenteria, this is by far the best of them all. One reason was it's a relatively new hotel. When I checked in it was only 2 years old. It has a nice modern theme, with none of your typical... More
