Staying in Monteray in the summer is very expensive so we choose to stay in Salinas-only 20min away. The hotel was quiet, comfortable, and close to various places to eat. The indoor pool was nice. The staff were super friendly. Only reason 4 stars instead of 5 was that the front desk wouldn't book another night for us and we... More

I'm a gold member of Marriott and have stayed in many Courtyard hotels. This one was not even close to meeting the Marriott standard. As a gold member, I usually get upgraded to one of the nicest rooms in the hotel. This room wasn't nice. The carpet was worn-out and stained in multiple places. The sheets had stains. The air...

We just spent 3 nights at this hotel and it was wonderful. I used the mobile check-in, so it was very quick to get to the room. The room was quiet and clean and comfortable.

Stayed here one night. Nothing to write home about. The decor in the room felt a little tired. Staff member who checked us was anxious and so focused on her speech, she left out a few important details, like what room we were in and where the elevators were located.

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. I'm sure the front desk agent was making sure to inform you of our in house amenities. It is hotel policy not to state the room number out loud as we care for the safety and security our our guest. More

We decided to use our rewards for a night out of town. When we chose this Marriott it was mainly for the indoor pool, since it was raining and cold outside. The pool is heated and there is a spa next to it. The hotel met expectations, however when I asked if they had a sewing kit to fix a... More
