Sacramento, California
Reviewed January 28, 2014

First off, I'm a business traveler averaging over 200 nights per year in hotels. I have stayed in numerous Holiday Inn Express properties throughout California and Nevada, and I've seen plenty of examples of them and the standards that each property maintains. Rarely do I actually write an internet review, but this location deserves it. I have stayed here close...

Los Angeles, California
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Needed last minute reservations for a quick trip to Salinas and was initially very skeptical about the hotel options in this little town. Holiday Inn Express & Suites definitely had the best reviews and I understand why! Very clean, spacious and pleasant with free breakfast, parking and Wi-fi. Service was excellent and we were able to check in significantly early,...

Really CLEAN place to stay. The pool house is amazing as is the staff. A very nice place to stay in nasty, dangerous Salinas. I stay there a few nights every week and they treat me well. Stay here and you'll love it, too. There is truck parking in the back.

This is just a good, convenient place to stay. It is a little bit away from downtown and the neighborhood is not really nice, but that is about the only negative I can think of. The staff is professional and friendly. The indoor pool is nice. The suites are spacious and clean. The breakfast is good quality. Recommended for business...

Very nice hotel. It was very clean, nice décor, good beds. It was much nicer than I was expecting for a Holiday Inn Express. Would stay here again. There are a lot of restaurants and services in close proximity to the hotel. The breakfast was satisfactory.

Nice big room. This facility is located at the end of the street and seems to be in a very safe area. I was impressed with our room—clean and comfortable. I was very impressed with the number of available outlets since we travel with laptop, cameras, iPads, phones, etc. that need recharging. The staff was very friendly and went out...

Oakland, California
Reviewed October 29, 2013

By far, the nicest hotel on this fairly straightforward hotel/motel row in Salinas. * Newish construction * Clean bathrooms w/o sticky fixtures * Perfectly good linens & bedding * Friendly & competent staff Definitely gets the job done as a fine roadside lodging. The nearby Taqueria Los Altos is a good spot. Also recommended.

I spent one night here while in the area on business. I have to admit that I arrived pretty late, and left early. So I didn't get much of an opportunity to sample the amenities. However, overall, I found it to be a great overnight accommodation. The property is clean and well laid out. My room was spotless. When I...

This hotel is very convenient for highway 101 (it's just a couple of minutes from the exit ramp). The hotel is very modern and well equipped.

Thanks for the review LichfieldBazboy. If you ever travel back this way please ask our front desk staff about our restaurant guide (which includes step by step directions from the hotel).
