The nasty couch shoved under the outdoor stairwell pretending to be a "lounge area" was omen #1, well actually the EMPTY parking lot was #1. The "continental breakfast nook" without tables or chairs was another deception. We merely opened the door to our room and peeked in to determine that we were NOT staying.

My spouse and I stay here when we are in Salinas. Prices are okay, right off of the freeway so very convenient, rooms are nice and cozy, comfy beds and love all the pillows, quite and private, and staff is friendly.

Next, when I entered the bathroom I noticed several cockroaches....yeah, gross. The water pressure was awful while showering. Mattress was uncomfortable. Basically everything sucked. I would've requested a different room had the... More

Small room, too noisy (highway traffic and trucks noise) and not so clean (pillows were not exactly white). Just two towels in the room (we were four). Breakfast standstill, without any table or chair.

The rooms are big and have a 2nd sink, bath and couch. They are clean. The staff is helpful. There is cable, easy parking and easy access to the freeway. The drive to Salinas is through beautiful farm land.
