My families stay at the Residence Inn in Salinas was by far one of the best. I have never met a friendlier or more helpful staff. Highly recommend staying there if ever in the area. A great time to stay is during the Salinas Rodeo which is held in July.

For the price, its a nice hotel - not great but suitable. We had a king suite with pull-out sofa bed which is suitable for smaller kids but definitely not for adults or teenagers. As with other reviewers, noise from above is something to consider so top floor room is best. Yes, you can hear roosters but I only heard... More

We really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The rooms are very spacious and were very comfortable. The extra space is great for traveling with kids especially. The staff was super-attentive and very helpful (front desk, breakfast, etc). We had one minor issue with the cleaning staff, but the front desk person was really nice and handled it well. The evening... More

If you dont' mind the roosters waking you up at 4am..Then you will be fine. The beds were hard and the sofa bed is horrible. Perhaps a small child could sleep comfortably on it. The pool was very cloudy. Hot tub was fine. Employees very pleasant. We were in the back of the hotel on the third floor. Anyone coming... More

Wifi signal is good, bed is very comfortable. location is a little bit far but still acceptable. the only problem is that we found a half-eaten muffin in my room night table when we checked in....

Enjoyed the stay! Friendly staff, great breakfast that comes free with the room. If you are booking late and Monterey locations do not work out, Salinas is close by and works great. It does not have the beach and it is in the middle of a farm but still a good place to stay. You need to drive 20 miles... More

I have stayed at many Marriott properties (domestic and international) and I must say this Residence Inn had the nicest and friendliest staff that I have come across. Not one bad apple in the group. I would highly recommend!

Just got back from a stay in Salinas for my daughter's swim meet. The hotel itself was very nice, and all of the staff we encountered extremely helpful and friendly. We had a 2 bedroom suite with kitchenette. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen well-equipped, everything very clean. The breakfast buffet was quite substantial, with waffle bar, yogurt, oatmeal and... More
