I stayed in a double room with 2 friends while on vacation from Aug 31 -Sept 5, 2012. Our goal was to see San Francisco (1.25 hrs away), and all of Carmel & Pebble Beach (40 min away). Salinas is small, quiet, and perfectly located if you have your own car and enjoy driving. Don't be alarmed by the surrounding... More

Very nice property, right off the freeway but set back enough to be quiet in the hotel. This Holiday express is well kept, clean & the staff very friendly & helpful. It has a nice large pool & hot-tub with showers in a detached enclosure kind of like an atrium. The rooms have refrigerators & microwaves an an air conditioning... More

Near the highway, with a bit of noise, but not too bad. Clean, modern room. Breakfast quite good, nice selection of bread, fruit, cereals. Great advice from reception for dinner- Los Altos, just down the street with delicious, cheap authentic Mexican food. Noisy but fun. Thanks for the great suggestion!

We recently took a trip to Monterey and I had a room booked at Hyatt Monterey. After reading about the thin walls and having two small children, I started to search for other properties. I was able to get a great deal through Hotwire for $123/night at HIE Salinas. The free parking, breakfast and small amount of rooms helped a... More

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
