My first initial reaction upon entering was the musty smell. The smell alone was enough to put you in a bad mood and cause trouble when falling asleep. 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.

I've stayed at this motel many times. The customer service is excellent. Runal checked me in and he managed to get me in my room within minutes. The manager Johnny and his wife are very friendly and they are very caring towards there guest. This hotel by far is the best family hotel in monterey county. Cindy and Richard

We stayed here for the Spartan race that occurred a little down the road. The traffic noise was okay but could bother others. The people adjacent to our room slammed the door several times throughout the night and walls were thin. Overall nice staff.

Stayed in a queen room, which is about 15 feet from 101. Very noisy. Sheets were not clean, asked for another set of sheets, which also had all sorts of stains on it. Mold in the shower. Just not a clean hotel room. I recommend staying somewhere else.
