Very noisy because it is between a highway at one side and a road on the other side. Extremely expensive - we were quoted $240 per room per night that turned out to become $270. The toilet did not function - it had to be fixed the next morning. The staff at front desk at arrival unfriendly.

Dear Yosibash, On behalf of our entire team I would like to apologize for our hotel not meeting your expectations. Upon researching your situation I discovered that when you arrived it was very late and the only two rooms we had left was away from the highway but unfortunately not on the side you preferred. I do apologize for this... More

Larry was the guy at the front desk when we first checked in; he could not have been more helpful and turn this on to some great eateries in the area. However, upon returning to the room we found the place to be quite noisy, a 1st floor room with elephants dancing above us, and a very loud meeting in... More

As a Diamond traveler, I am seldom recognized by Best Western staff. Don't expect it, but it is nice when it happens. I was upgraded on this visit and given a water.

was a nice environment to relax and sleep. I do not really have anything further to say, except this site "Your Review" is a bit long winded for me. I should be able to post less or more not be required to post more.

By far this hotel was the best we have stayed at. The rooms were clean and had new carpet. The breakfast attendant was also very nice and professional. It was a pleasure staying at this best western. I would recommend it to any one who enjoys clean, comfortable rooms and friendly staff

Stopped here late at night on a trip south. Newly renovated facility. Rooms were clean and well-appointed, and front desk staff was pleasant and helpful. Complimentary breakfast was standard fare ... make-your-own waffles, yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, etc. Near a MacDonald's and the freeway so there is some noise at night and early in the morning, but wasn't too bad.

Hotel very well kept up. Rooms very clean. Parking a little confusing as there are signs and a lot of reading to make sure you are parking in the correct area ! Liked the new room carpet and hallway carpet.

If you do Spartan Super Race at Toro County Park, this hotel offers great facilities for reasonable price. The issue is if you drive your own car. You'll have to go around to get to the parking space of the park for the race, so it'll be more worth it to stay at Monterey instead of at Salinas. However, if... More
