We stayed overnight on the way back to SF airport. Not a bad drive to the airport. Room was clean, the bathroom clean and bed was comfortable. The desk staff were very friendly. No breakfast but the IHOP was nearby!

My first good impression is about cleanliness from this hotel. Right now I have a long trip with my family, and I bring a lot of luggage. When I arrived in this hotel I need to bring all my luggage alone to my room. No porter in this hotel. I just drive from Vegas to salinas, and bring luggage to... More

We stayed during the rodeo. Ok a $129 goes for $299. The shock at checkout for $359!!! For the second night without notice- not cool. Greed is not good in the hotel business. Last visit there. The hotel is not what I call a first level Courtyard. It is little rough around the edges. Some broken screens and dirty patios.... More

This hotel is pretty standard. It has nice beds, clean bathroom, and a good sized room. The pool was really warm, almost as warm as the Jacuzzi. The service was good. When we ordered towels, they were immediately brought up to our room. The breakfast wasn't the best, though. It was outsourced, and they didn't have a very good selection.... More

The Courtyard Marriott is an interesting hotel. The rooms were very nice, and the pool was warm. The gym looked a little small, but nice. The breakfast wasn't really good. They probably bought somewhere. The only egg was scrambled, and the people forgot to bring the sausages. The wait for food was slow. I think it's good, but never go... More

While the room was fine, beds comfortable and room clean, the property is overpriced for the location (it's Salinas, not Monterey) and what you get. My experience in the breakfast room (actually it was a hallway) was not good. I was getting coffee and before I could even grab a cup, a lady interrupted me, literally stopped me, and wanted...

Stayed here a couple of nights while in Salinas on business and also to visit Monterey. Location is very convenient, right off 101. The hotel is your typical Courtyard - decent, comfortable rooms, clean, and well-kept. The pool area and workout rooms are nice, although the water in the pool was every bit as warm as the water in the... More

Booked here for a couple of nights after driving the Big Sur from LA. Close to Monterey, and Carmel by the Sea. Much more affordable than hotels in those towns. California tourism office close by. Tons of restaurants and shopping in the area as well. Hotel has a pool, onsite breakfast area (for a fee), and laundry facilities. They provide... More

Nice looking and comfortable hotel; potentially great base for the Big Sur trips. However, due to a design failure, this hotel has exceptionally bad room-to-room noise isolation, which seriously affects the privacy. One could easily hear conversations, and other sounds in the neighboring rooms, or listen to their TV channels. We tried 2 rooms there, both the same. This is... More

I stayed here on a last minute trip, it was a pretty standard hotel room, nothing to write home about. Clean, quiet and comfortable, and very nice receptionist. The one complaint was the bar experience. I ordered a maker's mark night cap to go from the bar. Bartender says $10 (which was steep, but why not) but the bill came... More
