This hotel rates somewhat better than average for me, but not quite up to "very" good. The room size is nice, had a nice little frig in room and the wifi worked well and was easy to get. Would prefer an eatery other than McDonald's nearby. Continental bkfst looked pretty standard, but is nice to have. Shampoo, soap etc standard.... More

This is nice hotel located near Monterey, Santa Cruz and Pinnacles national monument. If you don't find anything there, this might be your alternative. Nice staff but doesn't worth $170 per night for free Wifi, clean room with a continental breakfast. Oh well...

My husband and I stayed here on business about 2 weeks ago. We were very unsure about it due to some of the reviews we had seen. I am very happy we took a chance on it. The room was nice sized and very clean. We are both smokers and were surprised at how clean the smoking room was, way... More

Stayed here for one night while in town on business. It was very comfortable. The pictures on here are outdated, as the room looks different now. It was quiet and clean and I slept well. The hotel offers a continental breakfast that includes a waffle maker, yogurt, bagels, coffee and a few other things. My room had a microwave and... More

Our stay exceeded expectations. The hotel is being updated and the pictures now online don't do it justice. The room was very comfortable & clean & the staff is very friendly. Also, the rates are quite reasonable; and the location makes it a good resting spot between southern & northern California just before you get into the Silicon Valley inflated... More

as savvy road warriors know, salinas sits just outside the bay area 'cone of unaffordability', and as such, the best western 'non-plus' is a reasonable choice. although a fairly ugly colonial on the outside, it offers decent if bland lodging, with a tip of the hat to the world's most powerful hot tub jet. all in all, not bad.

We ended up staying at the Best Western after our car broke down in Salinas. Not only were the people at Best Western welcoming and so kind, they also helped us find a mechanic. The room was comfortable and we had a great night's sleep!

This hotel wasn't a bad place to stay, I think Salinas overall is not a great place to stay. I was there for business so I had no choice, but I would most likely not stay there for pleasure. The hotel was decent looking outside, just a fairly plain looking place, right in a McDonald's parking lot, so the stink... More
