The hotel is conveniently located to shopping and restaurants and the staff was very friendly and efficient. Checkin was smooth and rewards upgrade given. The grounds are well maintained and the interior of the hotel was also clean and well maintained. Carpets were worn, the kitchen was modern, housekeeping for the room was as good as it could be, and... More

Certainly this Residence Inn property appears very nice from its exterior. Our two bedroom/two bathroom unit was also updated and had a nice decor. The space and rate were excellent for our family of four as we could stay in one unit yet have the amenities of two full rooms including a kitchen and living space. The lobby had coffee... More

This was a 7 day business trip and I favor this type of hotel as well as the IHG Candlewood series. No problems with check-in. I was given a handicapped accessible room (which I'm not) but the amenities were about the same. I had a burned out light in the bathroom and that was taken care of the next day.... More

Great hotel, terrible service. I called front desk to get my room clean three times during 30 day whole stay because I had a newborn and I wanted my baby to sleep and don't wake her up. I talked with TRISHA and STACEY and they would answer that they would let housekeeping know, they never came I would have to... More

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
