Everything was excellent with this site, The beds in both rooms were the best I have used in hotels. Slept like a baby and did not wake up with back pain, very important to me as I have back problem. Rooms were quiet, but close to freeway access. The breakfast which I did use the second stay was very nice.... More

I was so happy with my stay here. There customer service was awesome. They went above and beyond to ensure my families stay was great. They let us check in a little before check in time and let an additional person stay for a small fee of course. The pool was outside and i don't think it was heated but... More

Good value and clean. close to fast food restaurants and regular restaurants . Easy access to freeway and local businesses. A short trip to Monterey and the coast for dinning, pleasure, surfing or business.

Of all the places we have stayed in the Monterey/Salinas area, we consistently return to the Best Western Salinas Monterey Hotel, in Salinas. We have stayed at this hotel each time we visit family in the area over the past 8 years and get the same excellent service and care each time. Their prices are commensurate of the area but... More

Nice overall hotel, breakfast room clearly too small for the hotel size not enough room so this generate a lot of stress!!!! Close to Salinas downtown centre (less than 5 minutes by car) and the rodeo place. Nice pool for the kids (rather cold).

Hotel is right next to the freeway so access is good but can be noisy. Hotel is a bit tired and worn. We used the sofabed in our room which should have been condemned. They brought other mattresses and one of our family slept on the floor. Make sure you get a good deal, otherwise stay somewhere else.

The worst hotel experiance I have ever recieved. Managment to the room. All were terrible and I was still charged for a night when I was only at the hotel for less than 45 minutes before I was disgusted to the point of leaving.

We visit the Monterey Bay area several times a year so the kids can visit with their grandparents and consider the Best Western Salinas our home away from home. It's been our son's favorite hotel since he was about 18 months thanks to the caring, dedicated staff (and waffles at breakfast!) The staff is incredibly friendly and go out of... More
