Sparkling clean, well run, well worth the money. Standard breakfast, helpful and courteous staff. Would stay here again. About a half an hour's drive to Monterey and Big Sur. Short drive to Steinbeck Institute and Steinbeck House.

We stayed at best western Salinas 2 weeks ago and had a great time, the staff was very helpful, we asked for extra pillows and they brought them right of way. We forgot our camera charger in the room, then called them the day after, Melinda was very nice, she told me to send in a return envelope with the... More

Clean and neat hotel room. Two racks for luggage. Unfortunately close to freeway which can be heard in room. Slow internet connection. Electrical outlets in lamp bases will not allow Apple chargers. No shampoo. Wash basin in bedroom rather than in bathroom. Terrible breakfast.

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.

This hotel needs to be held up as a glowing example of what other hotels should be like. Helpful staff, luxurious rooms. Good breakfast. Ample free parking. Easy to find. Highly recommended. Really enjoyed our stay
