Upon arrival I checked in with Stephanie. I needed to make a change to my length of stay due to last minutes changes in my work schedule. I had to contact Priceline to make those adjustments since I made the purchase through them. Priceline was unwilling to work with my request. Afterwards, I went back to the front desk and... More

This was my first stay in a Residence Inn, so I didn't know exactly what to expect. Our room was in great shape, and the hotel staff was always friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was sufficiently stocked and had a good variety. I'd recommend this hotel if you are traveling through Salinas.

Typically we stay at Hilton hotels but this hotel was in the area we were paying through so we gave it a try. First, the staff at the front desk is amazing. They were helpful and friendly. They did help to fix several problems we had. I give the staff 5 stars. The room was decent with a nice sized... More

The front desk guy was awesome. He was very friendly and seems to be doing everything from answering the phone to doing laundry. He always answered questions with a smile. The complementary bottled water upon arrival for Marriott loyalty program members is great. Join if you are not a member already. The room is in the small side with thin... More

As an elite member, I struggle with giving this hotel a higher rating. The staff was very nice but every time housekeeping refreshed my room it was not up to the standards I am use to. At check in I had no soap, next no floor mat. The shower curtain liner needed changing as it was splashed with black stuff.... More

My wife & I were here with our 9 yo grandson. The Residence Inn provided great staff, a great breakfast and a clean and spacious room. Our grandson enjoyed the pool. We visited the Monterey Aquarium which is about 1/2 hour drive.

We have stayed here before; but, the last visit in the Third floor included an outside light that was too strong. We could not cover up the curtains to prevent the string light from beaming into our studio room. Definitely get a one bedroom if you are a light sleeper from strong outside lights attached to the building. Otherwise, nice... More
