Took a trip to visit family in August and my stay at The Residence Inn/Salinas really mad my stay, The hotel was booked solid but the customer service was spot on. The cleanliness of the rooms, kitchen staff during breakfast and front desk service all exceeded my standards. I live in Vega and travel often, so i was very pleased... More

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.

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
