Overall, a clean & efficient hotel with modern amenities. One of the better hotels in town. Pros: Free Breakfast (Pancake machine is magic!), In & Out Burger down the street. Cons: Towels were a bit rough and could be softer/fluffier. Sports Center tuned on every TV.

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and would definitely stay there again. The hotel is clean, the bed was comfortable and the breakfast was more than I expected. It is in a great location off the freeway and close to Santa Cruz and Monterrey. Good times!

We stayed here for one night during a group tour. The room was quiet and comfortable, with a seating area, microwave and mini-fridge. The included breakfast had a reasonable array of choices. I would stay here again.

The hotel is located just a few minutes from downtown Salinas. It is adjacent to the freeway but the rooms were quiet. There is a pool and a reasonably well outfitted fitness centre. Breakfast was included and it was good, especially the turkey sausage. The coffee was good too, which was a nice surprise. The rooms are well appointed, especially... More

I was on the road on business and stayed in Salinas for the night at the Holiday Inn Express. The hotel is relatively new, or taken care of really well. It's towards the end of town going south on 101. It's located in a strange area but safe it's a row of hotels on one side facing the freeway and... More

We checked in for 3 nights and stayed for 5. The place was busy with families at breakfast but you'd never know when in the room because it was so quiet. They have everything a person needs from swimming pool to work out room and a wonderful spread for breakfast. We even were able to have hot tea before bed.... More

Great hotel. Inexpensive and close to 101 and downtown Salinas. Attendants are nice and helpful. Shoes up to fitness center at 4am and it was closed. Went to front desk to ask for a running route. Attendant came to the desk and said it was raining. I told him it would not bother me. He looked outside and said not... More

The Salinas Holiday Inn is at the very end of a street of motels that ends at a farm field. When taking a trip, whether adventurous or mundane, it is nice to know that whatever Holiday Inn Express one is booked into will have a clean room, a clean, indoor pool with a side jacuzzi hot tub, and a bountiful,...

Nice clean room, friendly staff, and good breakfast. Good location with fast food and a great Mexican restaurant within walking distance. Beautiful field of celery right next to the hotel that smelled wonderful and fresh.
