This review is based on the the response by the Marriott management after I initially filed a complaint in August. After going back and forth for about 3 weeks, someone got in touch with me and settled the issue. I was refunded for my night's stay after all the trouble we had with the reservation. I appreciate that. It's unfortunate...

The pros and cons so far: Pros: 1. Desk staff and housekeeping very friendly and responsive: 2. Housekeeping actually rearranged their daily schedule to suit our time request 3. One of our kitchen utensils was shot—they replaced it immediately 4. Daily vacuuming and cleaning of our 1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment—I’m gonna miss this after we leave! 5. The breakfast...

The only reason why I am giving this hotel two stars rather than zero is because the front desk staff were so nice and accommodating. We stayed here for a weekend while my daughter attended a softball tournament. We stayed in a two bedroom suite, which are usually nice and spacious for my family. When I put my ten month...

I'm a huge fan of the Residence Inn Brand for Marriott, and this place was no exception. Very, very clean room, very friendly and warm staff, quiet and in a good location in Salinas. Breakfast wasn't quite up to snuff for R.I., but it got the job done, and otherwise I'll be happy to stay her for upcoming client work...

We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite. Very nice room because it is like an apartment. I did find the sofa bed in the living room a little uncomfortable to sit on. But otherwise the room was comfortable. The blow dryer didn't work properly however as it would shut off after just a minute or so and then not restart...

It's less than a 30-minute drive to Monterey, and yet this is a family-friendly hotel that is very close to shopping and restaurants. People are very friendly, and hotel is clean and neat. Would highly recommend.

Room was very clean, comfortable and well maintained. Staff was friendly and kitchenette was an added plus with microwave, fridge, coffee maker, dishwasher etc. Shower was hot and bed was soft. Same rate as other Marriott right across the parking lot but this one has free breakfast and the kitchen.
