This hotel is a bit dated. Rooms are not as nice looking as the professional pictures. Cracked sink, stain on carpet.... However, the bed was nice and room was clean. Iron and ironing board in room. Nice separate sink area with enough space on counter top for a make-up bag. Good lighting. A magnified mirror would have been a a... More

Traveling north central California and needed a comfortable place to sleep before taking the Amtrak train back home. The Courtyard is a well kept hotel and very comfortable right off US 101 and a short cab ride to the train station. The hotel held a good room for us as we checked in later in the evening. The room was... More

This was pretty much like every other Courtyard I have stayed at across the country which is NOT a negative comment! It is comforting to know what I am getting before I even walk in the door. What was NOT typical was the friendly, knowledgeable staff -- I arrived late so basically had fast food or pizza as an option.... More

Traveling from Santa Barbara to San Francisco we drove the Pacific Coast Highway without a real plan but just the notion we will get there when we get there. Beautiful drive but needed a room in Monterey for the night. Marriott Courtyard is a dependable standard an we selected this one as it advertised Monterey. The location is in Salinas... More

We booked a room here for one night because of the excessive cost of rooms in Monterrey and Carmel and we were heading back to San Francisco early the next day. After spending the day in Monterrey and Carmel, we are very happy we stayed at the Salinas Courtyard. It is a very clean, affordable and a quiet location, about... More

My husband and I recently traveled down the coast of Northern California and decided to spend two nights in Monterey. Because it was the week of the 4th of July, the hotels in Monterey were quite expensive. We decided to stay near Monterey and was able to Priceline this hotel for $80! It was a great location even though we... More

We spent 2 nights at this hotel during the SBK motorcycle races at Laguna Seca. The hotel was great. The rooms were clean and quiet (we were on the 3rd floor (top). The beds were comfortable and the AC worked fine. We did have the drainage problem in the tub, as others have noted. We told the front desk about... More

Stayed over the 4th of July weekend. Happy with the outcome of our Priceline Express booking. Confident it had to be the Courtyard or Residence Inn in Salinas. Nice clean average Courtyard. Breakfast items were good, if pricey. Not recommended if you are looking for a romantic Carmel/Monterey place to stay (though most are way over-priced for what you get),... More

This hotel is appropriately priced, and clean and well run. Staff was great at all times, friendly and competent and intelligent at all levels. While the restaurant is a pay restaurant, I did not mind because for ten bucks one can get food that is truly enjoyable: the food is so much better than the free breakfasts elsewhere. I only... More

Stayed here for three days was generally happy, wasn't the best courtyard marriott I've stayed in though, the room and bathroom were clean but the water seemed very slow going down the drain although this could have just been my room, really my biggest disappointment was no microwave or mini fridge in the room, also no microwave available to guests...
