We stayed here for one night on our way to LA. We arrived at night and it was in an area with other hotels. Desk clerk was courteous. Our room was clean and linens appeared new. No bar lock on door so we put chair there as not familiar with area. Breakfast was a very nice surprise. I had an... More

This is the worst review I've ever given, and I've written many. First, the positive notes that prevent me from giving it 0 stars: the cleanliness of the room seemed OK, although the light was so poor that I could hardly tell, and the breakfast had decent hot and cold items. Now for the negative: When I checked in, I... More

First floor room, don't think there's an ice machine. Went to lobby to ask where it was, waited few mins for manager. He walked me to locked storage room and scooped ice into bucket. Large room, microwave, coffee maker, plenty of towels, good a/c, mini fridge not functional. Free wifi, pretty full parking lot.

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.
