We stayed here overnight to break the road trip into two days. Aside from the staff having issues checking me in, everything was great. I think they are learning a new system and may need to be trained better. They are currently renovating and we had a new room, it was very nice. Breakfast was about as usual as you...

The hotel seems well maintained. My room was spacious, clean, comfortable and quiet. No complaints at all. The microwave and ref. with a sink was very welcome. Typical breakfast for the chain but everything was fresh. The staff were attentive, friendly and quite helpful. The parking lot was well lit and the overall environment was welcoming.I would absolutely stay here...

Nice hotel, very clean and new looking. Staff was very friendly and professional. At 140$ a night you get a very comfortable and quiet night. The pool is indoors so even though it was only 55 degrees outside we had a great time in the pool.

We stayed here in July of 2016. Our car was broken into sometime during the night. We were told upon finding it the next morning that their maintenance man found it at 1:00a.m. And that they tried to call my room but the phone was not working. They did not try to call the other room I had booked for...

I have stayed at this Holiday Inn and I would like to rate the management and staff not only the hotel. I had a family party December 2016 and the manager was super responsive and accommodating with my guests. We got a great rate and outstanding customer service. In August of 2013 we also used the hotel for our out...

My wife & I recently stayed here for one night. We were pleasantly surprised with the spacious room, cleanliness, comfortable bed, friendly staff, conveniently located off highway 101, and reasonable price. The included breakfast was definitely a bonus & lasted until 10am. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone needing a place to stay in the Salinas area.

We stopped here overnight unexpectedly as Highway 1 was closed. Receptionist was very helpful and we had a suite for the night. Room was large with 2 queen beds, sofa and coffee table. Breakfast was included. Did not use any of the facilities as it was a later check in for us. Would stay here again if in the area.

Stayed here one night on the way to our destination in Southern California. Very impressed. Newer, clean, great breakfast, great price. At first wasn't sure about the neighborhood, but it was at the end of a street that was very quiet and no traffic. Would definitely stay here again if ever need to in the area. Right off the freeway...

This location is right off the highway. The area itself doesn't look particularly exciting but if you just want a clean, nice place to sleep, this is it. We had rooms close to the highway side but could barely hear any noise. Bed was large, room was clean, check-in quick, breakfast good. Overall, very comfortable stay.
