My husband had to make a quick trip to Salinas for an appointment. My 2 sons and I decided to make a field trip out if it and visit the aquarium in Monterey while my husband attended his meeting. Normally we would stay in a bed and breakfast but because this was a fast trip, decided to stay in Salinas.... More

I stayed at this hotel almost continuously from December 2013 to March 2014. The manager, Denna, and her team constantly went out of their way to make me and my team feel welcome. The rooms were roomy and comfortable. The food was high qualiy. In particular, Denise, who worked as hostess in the kitchen, was always friendly and put her... More

We used a Marriott credit card free night certificate to stay here. The actual room price is quite expensive but the room is very clean and nice with a seating area, a small dining table, a work desk, a kitchen area, and a spacious bathroom. The complimentary breakfast is quite extensive with several cereals, oatmeal, muffins, toast, bagels, fruits, and... More

What a treat! Albeit pricey. Residence Inn is a part of the Marriott hospitality empire. We were there to visit family and to conclude some business. From that last standpoint, here is the best place in Salinas for the Business Traveler; for whom the Hotel was designed. We were overnighters, longer stays are common. SERVICE: Swift, accurate and comprehensive. Good... More

I just stayed at the Residence Inn as I was in Monterey for business. Unfortunately the rate at the Marriott was just a bit too high to justify staying there. I was relieved that the Residence Inn was at least nicer than the Courtyard next door (that I won't stay at again). I prefer the more spacious layout that Residence... More

Stayed during a difficult time. The front desk was amazing and very accommodating. Denise was the sweetest hardest worker, Marriott is lucky to have her as a dedicated team member. If we are ever in need of a place to stay near Monterey, Ca This will be our choice.
