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.

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.

We were in town a bit late, to settle up with our Income Tax preparer who lives right next door. We would not have come so far south if not for that proximity. It was May 2013. This is a smaller district loaded with National Brand hospitality but we examined all of those and were not inspired - literally Quality... More

This property offers location and a decent room for those wanting an affordable place within 30 mins drive of Monterey. I was able to Priceline the property at the last minute and called the hotel to request a room with 2 Queen beds. Manager on duty was incredibly rude on the phone and adamant that we had to pay a...

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at our hotel. I am sorry you were disappointed on this occasion, and I apologize for any inconvenience you experienced. However, you mention a "guarantee" by Priceline for two beds. This was obviously was not the case and we had no option but to charge you an upgrade... More

Rooms are clean, however everything else is old, the windows are single-pane, given it is right next to highway, the rooms are very noisy with all the traffic. Fairly basic, easy access to major traffic routes. Staff is friendly.
