We recently took a trip to Monterey and I had a room booked at Hyatt Monterey. After reading about the thin walls and having two small children, I started to search for other properties. I was able to get a great deal through Hotwire for $123/night at HIE Salinas. The free parking, breakfast and small amount of rooms helped a lot. Checkin was a breeze and the evening shift employee was a great guy. We got a room on the second floor and did not hear anything the first two nights. The last night Friday we did hear some neighbor noise. We think it was teen aged boys just hanging out. They were all asleept by 11:30 p.m. The breakfast for us was the winner. A good variety of choices and my son would eat three yogurts every morning. Would highly suggest this property and the location right off 101 and very close to Monterey and surrounding areas. It was just a low key, quiet property and reasonable.
