A good Residence Inn but I rely on good internet for work. As a gold level member I thought they would place me in a room that had good a connection. They had good food for the evening reception. Parking was good. Nice room. Close to restaurants.

I chose this hotel because I like Residence Inns and this one has an indoor pool. The pool was warmer than those in other Residence Inns. 20-25 minutes to Carmel, Monterey and Pebble Beach. 45 minutes to Santa Cruz. One hour to San Jose and a little further to Palo Alto, Santa Clara and Half Moon Bay. Variety of fresh... More

We stay at Marriott's all the time. By far this is the worst managed property. First: the elevator smelled like someone had thrown up on the carpet or a dog had gone on the carpet or something died in there. It was just awful. We decided to go up and down the stairs even with our luggage. It was that... More

We stayed here two nights while exploring the Monterey and Salinas areas. This place was recommended by one of our friends, who was holding a party in her home, as this was bear her place. There is also a Marriott hotel in the same compound, but I chose the Residence Inn as it was more like a studio apartment with... More

We enjoyed an evening stop at this very comfortable hotel. The rooms are spacious with kitchen facilities and a bed and bath area. All were clean and well decorated. The bed was most comfortable. It would be easy to spend several nights here!

This Residence Inn, conveniently located just off Laurel Drive and Hwy 101, looks spanking new. Our room on the second floor was super-quiet and served an ok buffet breakfast. Being tired after a long day at the Monterey Aquarium and National Steinbeck Center, we opted for an easy bistro dinner at the adjacent Courtyard by Marriott. Staff was courteous and... More

I walked into the Residence Inn Salinas to check in and immediately asked them to also print me out directions to the 2 closest emergency rooms as my daughter was having stomach pains.

We were in town for golf and sightseeing, staying 6 nights at this Residence Inn. Typically good, clean, good breakfast, and very helpful staff.
