this was a last minute stay, hotel staff was professional and friendly, Room was very nice and clean. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast bar was ok. The only complaint was could hear a lady early in the morning outside our door having a full blown conversation , not sure if she was standing directly outside my door. Would stay again

It's a very basic hotel -- rather depressing overall. Located much closer to the highway than I expected and across the street from a trailer park. During my stay I had a family with young children in the room next door. The kids were very loud and constantly playing with the door that would allow the rooms to connect. The... More

Enjoyed my stay. Place is clean, staff was friendly and helpful. It is centrally located. Bed comfortable. Shower could use a bit more water pressure. Only complaint is filling out this survey. I described my thoughts above but it was not accepted because it requires a minimum of 200 characters . Hopefully this little note will bring it to 200... More

This is an excellent like new hotel that has all of the amenities that you could want! The only criticism that I have is that the breakfast eggs needed to be fluffy not in small pieces that were hard to eat off of a fork! Outside of that the rest of the food was excellent!

This was a fine property to stay at in Salinas. It is the second Best Western as you go down the street, I'm not sure why there are two in such close proximity. The rooms were comfortable, clean and acceptable. It's not close to downtown Salinas and some rooms probably have significant highway noise (ours faced the parking lot instead... More

This was my second stay at this hotel, however, I doubt that I'll return based on the lack of courtesy I experienced from the hotel manager. I was awakened early in the morning to the overpowering smell of bacon (a little is nice....too much is yuck!) and realized that my room was directly opposite the breakfast room. I had requested...

Feels like a 4 star hotel. Place is quiet and clean. Staff is helpful and friendly. Breakfast has many options. They let us check in early before 1 pm. AC and amenities all were easy to use and operate.

When you turn on to Kern Street in Salinas you will see a Best Western, but if you are looking for the Plus continue down the street and you will soon see this property. Both properties are very nice hotels, but we stayed at the Plus. Our room was large, and comfortable. The internet worked well, the TV was questionable.... More

Owners must be new to the industry. A business suite without a desk and office chair....Come On. No pens, note pads. Business Suite...Come one. The only thing is has going is that it is in a fairly secure/safe area and close the major attractions.

The manager was most helpful and seeking the best rate for me . I doubt I will ever book through Expedia again. He was apologetic & cordial about the fact the water would be turned off for about an hour as a plumbing problem was being repaired. That was not a problem for me. And it was fixed within the...
