5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Was here for business and had meetings closer to Carmel. The staff was always very nice and honestly is what made the review excellent. The breakfast is pretty good, doable for 3 days or less. They also seem to have happy hour snacks which one night they had tacos/ nachos and the chicken was delicious. The rooms were nice and... More

The property is conveniently located. The staff is friendly. The room was clean. However... the breakfast was GROSS!!! From the quality of the ingredients to the selection and presentation of the food, the breakfast was not suitable for the animals at the nearby farms. Even the "free" price tag of the breakfast wasn't worth it. The management should be ashamed.... More

We celebrated our 49th anniversary with cousins at Corral de Tierra Country Club. This property was recommended as a nice spot to spend the weekend. It lived up to the suggestion and was great. The breakfast was yummy, prepared by Rhonda. From the moment we walked in the front door, we were welcomed by an A+ employee, Esmeralda.

They offer a pretty good breakfast and our room was fine and usually quite. We could hear children running up and down the hall, but that's the parents fault. We had two dogs with us and it wasn't a problem at all. Near by restaurants are good and easy to access. Staff very helpful. The ladies working in the breakfast... More

Stayed 2 nights for family vacation, Check in is a breeze with good and friendly staff. Room is clean and spacious. However, the breakfast is really below our expectation. On the first morning, food ran out at 8:30 am. On second morning, enough food but the quality is poor due to most "hot food" is made in microwave. The coffee... More

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
