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.

This hotel was so nice that nobody wanted to leave in the morning. The staff was extremely friendly, competent, and accommodating. The room is beautifully layed out and could not have been cleaner. I felt very safe at this hotel and look forward to staying there again.

Whenever we can we stay at either Residence inn or Courtyard and I always get the same level of service that I expect. We spent one night at this hotel and once again, staff made a difference. Every single member of the staff that I encountered was genuinely polite and courteous and that made our stay memorable and that's why... More

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

Stopped here on the way from LA to Napa. Nice spot was clean and enjoyable. The front desk was odd in that there was an inner desk that the staff spent time at so you had to wait for then to walk our and up to the front to help you. The room was nice very clean bed was comfortable.... 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
