I recently stayed at this facility for the first time and I was sorely disappointed in trems of value.

This Marriott is an older and run down property. It is in a nice area but overall it was subpar. Room was okay, floors looked dingy, no HD TV, no fridge or microwave in room. The room rates shift on the weekend but they are not upfront with guests about how much they vary in rates versus booking rates that... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel I appreciate you commenting on areas you felt could be improved. As with the majority of all hotels rates are reflective of hotel occupancy and the demand of the area and therefore can fluctuate similar to airline rates. Breakfast is available for guests in the mornings, one may purchase it... More

I had to be at an event early the next morning, so I drove up and stayed at this hotel. It was about 20 minutes from the event at the Nicklaus golf course in Monterey. The hotel is not in a very interesting part of town... I couldn't walk to anywhere I wanted to eat, for instance. So I decided... More

Had a web reservation with confirmed rate, but they tried to charge me 15$ more per night at checkout. Additionaly they billed breakfast altough it was already included in the rate. Found that out when I came home and checked CC activity. Had to spend than 15' on the ph with Marriott to get refunded. Tiresome!!

Being a platinum elite member, this isn't the nicest courtyard I have been to, (it is a bit dated) however the hospitality they provide is wonderful. The hotel was clean and well kept.

The Courtyard Salinas is pretty much a typical Courtyard location--Courtyard properties aren't quite "stay at one, you've stayed at them all," but of course there is a certain cookie-cutter similarity to many of them. Anyway, this one is OK, I guess, but certainly not the best. Upon check-in, we were given the wrong room. Traveling as a family of three,... More

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...
