I'm a Marriott fan, so I'm biased. I've stayed at this property once before. Check-in was a pleasant experienced, they made me feel welcomed. Room was nicely appointed and comfortable. Everything I needed including microwave package of popcorn. Coffee pot had a an undesirable amount of scale in it that made me cringe a bit. But the coffee packages produced... More

On a positive note, the bed was comfortable and the desk clerks were friendly and helpful. However, the AC unit sounded like a truck's diesel engine running every time it came on, waking us up. The ceiling was thin and we had a tromper above us. The walls were thin and we had two screaming/crying kids next door to us,... More

The staff at this property is amazingly friendly and efficient! The rooms are clean. The breakfast is substantial with many offerings both hot and cold. The indoor pool's temperature was PERFECT! I have never had a hotel pool be spot on temperature wise. The spa was set a little too high,but bearable. I definitely recommend this property for a short... More

I recently completed a 14 month contract in Salinas. The Residence Inn was literally my home away from home. Can not say enough great things about the staff, always friendly and willing to go the extra mile for their guests. A very special thank you to Greg,Brittany, Jennifer, Christina and Denise! You made my lengthy stay so much easier!

Personnel were helpful and friendly. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast was super, with everything you could want, from muffins, bagels, oatmeal, fruit, yogurt, waffles, cold cereals, juices,, etc. Roosters crowing in the neighborhood were a plus for this city girl. HINT: This hotel is about a 35-40 minute drive to Monterey. We tried 3 different routes. So if that... More

Stay here everytime we go to Salinas. Staff are friendly and all smile and provide excellent service. Rooms are clean and spacious. Location is right off 101 and next to a Costco. Nice breakfast served daily.

We have long term term rooms for a group of consultants working in Salinas. We have been made to feel completely at home and are very well taken care of. They have a great complimentary breakfast and dinner items every Monday and Tuesday and sometimes on Wednesday.

We frequently stay at Residence Inn hotels. Our room was standard and okay. In the early morning the clock radio suddenly blared out high volume music and I quickly as I could tried to find a way to shut it off. I did not set it and I wasn't familiar with the buttons on it. I was equally concerned about... More

We stayed at this Residence Inn on a Thursday night. They have cut back on some functions such as the manager's nightly reception which is now only two nights a week and if I remember correctly, every other Wednesday, which was a disappointment. It is a standard hotel type Residence Inn and everything was just standard.
