Salinas was as close as we could get to Monterey during a major event. This property is just off the exit from 101 and very accessible. It was only 20 miles to Monterey where we went for dinner. This hotel was exactly what I expected: Clean, well kept, everything worked, free wifi, decent breakfast, comfortable beds, reasonable price. We like...

Everything about this hotel was great from the check-in clerk, to the cleanliness of the room and the convenient location. I came up from Fresno to attend the Swiss Picnic at the Swiss Rifle Club with my cousin who lives in Gonzales. I have stayed at this hotel for the past few years and plan to stay here again next...

I had to get a night here when things were full in the Monterey area. Very comfortable, fresh place. Good breakfast, nice people. My GPS is older and did send me to a location downtown where there used to be a Holiday Inn Express, because I didn't have the street address with me.

This is a newer facility, so it was very clean and in great condition. There is an indoor pool/Jacuzzi which was also very clean. The water temp was perfect, and I even went for a swim with my kids, which I usually don't. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was very good. I can't say anything bad...

Stayed here 2 nights while exploring the Monterey area. This property is new, so is in good condition. I couldn't believe we had 2 king-sized beds in our room. As a family of 4, that was a welcome surprise. A very good breakfast and a helpful staff makes this a thumbs-up for me. I would highly recommend the HIE Salinas...

In the realm of hotels in this price range, this one is excellent! Our room was upgraded to a suite so is was spacious and clean. Upon check in, we were given a list of restaurants in the area with directions which was quite helpful as we were just traveling through for a night. Breakfast is included as is wi-fi...

We stayed here for one night on a road trip as a family. The room was big and clean but a little noisy. Maybe it was where our room was but we did sleep. The breakfast was ok but we didn't have the hot food as it looked a little dry but there were the options instead. It was what...

We decided to stay in Salinas overnight to go to Monster Jams and as a stopover from driving from San Francisco to Los Angeles. We were able to check in a little early and we were upgraded to a junior suite which gave us extra room. We were thanked for being hotel reward members which we have found only happens...

Ok, kind of a mouthful of a claim but I stay at Holiday Inn hotels all over the west 40 weeks out of the year so I know the great and the really horrendous; this one is in the top 10%. The formula is simple but for some reason not each of them can put it all together, correctly, this...

We just returned from our short one night stay Holiday Inn Express Salinas. There is not one bad thing to say about it. The hotel looks new. Check in staff was so nice.
