Comfortable stay, what you would expect at a Courtyard Marriott. The rooms looked updated, but the bathroom appeared overlooked. Stains on shower curtain and tub. In general, what you would find at other Courtyards.

We had a few rooms while visiting Monterey. The rooms were extremely clean, fresh, and the property was well maintained. The beds comforable as well. The front staff were very helpful - especially after we checked in late. Victoria was really sweet and helpful in directing us as to where to eat brunch etc.

We got lucky with this one 😊....if you are visiting Monterey or Carmel on a holiday weekend, it can be difficult to find a good hotel at a good price. I prefer updated hotels, but most hotels by the coastline are very old and not necessarily upgraded. This one was nice surpise!!

Stayed during a short business trip from the East coast. Found the hotel to be representative of the Marriott brand, meaning well managed, maintained, clean and comfortable. This location is not adjacent to the highway so it is quiet and I could get some sleep. Staff was welcoming, and quite accommodating to my business needs. There is a shopping complex... More

The staff at this property makes the place. Everyone from early morning to late evening were unfailingly pleasant, helpful and cheerful. Big kudos. Otherwise the hotel is exactly what you expect from a Courtyard, although the pool may be better than at others.

Second time here in the past 16 months, and the place remains clean, quiet, well-managed enterprise an overnight stay for a travel around business. The location is great, right near the Black Bear Diner, wonderful comfort food not half a mile away. I'd recommend staying here for anybody who is on route between Northern and Southern California, or must stay... More

Stayed here to avoid the crowds and pricey hotels near Monterey. Visited Carmel, Monterey, and Big Sur during the day, but came back here to rest. Was a good decision. The best customer service we have had in a while. Only set back was the first night in a room near everyone's Ford truck leaving for work from the nearby... More

Marriott's Courtyard hotels are not all the same. Some need renovations, others lack good service. This one makes Marriott proud. From the friendly receptionist to the clean and fresh looking room everything was tops. Beds are still somewhat of a lotterie in most Courtyard hotels. Not here. We had a good night's rest and enjoyed the quiet location. Enough nearby... More

Needed a place to stay near the Carmel/Monterey area since hotels were relatively more expensive in those areas, decided to stay here in Salinas. I had a wonderful experience. Staff was friendly and checkin was easy. My room was spacious and they even had a fridge placed for free. There was a good working table and the TV channel selection... More
