Good size room, including free wifi and breakfast and all the usual extras in the room. There is also a fridge and microwave. Breakfast is better than average with scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, yogurts and a waffle maker. The breakfast room however is rather small.

I stayed in this hotel for the Spartan Race...and that is all I needed. A good place to sleep for the night, grab a quick shower and that was about it. For the price it wasn't bad. I travel all the time and I am a bit of a hotel guy, so I knew what I was getting myself into.... More

I just spent one night there and it was fine. The room I had was much larger than most hotels. There were quite a few items that appeared to be new. Such as the AC/heater unit, sink/counter, shower insert, and the office chair. The bed was fairly comfortable, not the greatest, but certainly not the worst. The internet speed was... More

Stayed there 3 weeks. (3 rooms, 1 week each). Beds in all rooms had seen better days and were sagging. One room had no heat or A/C., and another had the big front window, screwed open about 5". Not the best of areas, but close to freeway. There is only 1 person that works the front desk. (24hrs) At 5pm... More

Stayed here Valentine's weekend (2015) because the wife had work nearby. The hotel is located across the street from In-N-Out and McDonald's. It is also right next to the 101 on/off ramps. The hotel is very clean, well-maintained and has free wifi and a very nice breakfast including a great waffle cooker. During our stay the hotel was completely booked... More

Stayed here 20 September 2014 after finding prices in Monterey (weekend festival) all >$200. This looks like it's been recently refurbished. Had very comfortable room, with good facilities, obliging staff, and good on-site diner. Salinas is not Monterey, but for $100 (and was fully booked when we arrived) this was good value.

The biggest problem was the air conditioner was so load when it turned on I had to turn TV up then when... More

Great, clean, conveniently located hotel. Staff was friendly and the rooms were a nice size. We checked in at almost midnight and it felt safe and the front desk clerk was very nice. The hotel was quiet. Breakfast was good too. For the quality and convenience, you just couldn't beat the price!

The front desk gave us a room key the first time and found out that room was unavailable due to painting. So we went back to the front desk and he gave us another room key and that room was being painted. We went back to the front desk and then went to speak to the painters and gave us... More

Basic property next to the freeway. The 2nd and 3rd floors can be noisy from the street and freeway. The rooms were clean and the breakfast was basic. The manager gave us a good tip for dinner down the street at the Mexican restaurants.
