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

Very impressed with both the service, the condition of the hotel and room. Based on the contemporay furnishings this must be a newer hotel. The front desk staff was pleasant and accomodating. Even the common areas were very clean. Because of this positive experience we chose to stay at the Camarillo location of the chain. Big mistake. This Inn is... More

After a long drive from LA, I didn't know what to expect. Very nice and seems very new. Super clean and large comfortable King bed room. I asked for the corporate rate and received a nice discount. Nice staff, good location right off the 101. Very quiet and no road noise. Right next to farmland! Will stay again!

My family and I recently spent a weekend in the Monterey, CA area and found that the hotel was the perfect place to make our base camp. The staff were super friendly and the rooms large, clean and spacious. I loved the fact that breakfast and wi-fi were included (i.e. free) and its a quick 15 minute drive to Monterey... More
