Was exhausted after working the AT&T golf tournament and did not have any expectations for this hotel. What a nice surprise. A nice size room with a king bed, very nice shower, and a nice flat-screen television all made my stay very pleasant. The internet and the morning breakfast were both fine. One nice service touch was the fact that,... More

Nice facility. Beds are very comfortable, has computer available in lobby (but unable to do much, due to security restrictions/errors) Biggest gripe is that the clc rooms that were usually given are #107, 108, 109. And those rooms have inadequate wi-fi signal. (Esp. 107) Good tv channel selection, but older tube tv's. Also, overheard other person here on business, had... More

The rooms are always clean and Jay and his staff are always very friendly. The hotel offers a good value and they genuinely appreicate your business.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2014

The hotel was clean. But was not the best part of town. It was the best deal for short notice. The price was half of what you would pay for the Marriot and Hampton. Breakfast was included real basic-waffles, muffins, juice and yogurt. No eggs. I'm not sure if I'd stay here again because I'm usually with my kids and... More

I was pleasantly surprised to find that this hotel was more than I expected. I was meeting family for a short stay in Salinas and wanted something economical and clean. The parking area is small but well lit and there is enough parking for guests. The gentleman at the reception desk was polite and had me checked in quickly. The... More
