Great hotel! Stayed in a king room for 2 nights. Bed was very comfy & room large & clean. Even had mini fridge, hair dryer & coffee maker. Breakfast not bad for being complimentary.. coffee, juices, bread items, cereal, fruit. Nice pool area w hot tub. Would definitely stay here again! Salinas is a cool little town w friendly people!

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in mid September. Hotel was clean and friendly staff. It is a bit dated, but good value to your money. We stayed in one of the back units and it was very quiet. Would recommend staying here if you were thinking about going to Monterey. Close and easy drive to the coast.

Motel style accommodation, everything looks clean and well maintained.  Includes coffee maker, hairdryer and fridge. Good wifi and usual continental breakfast included. Would definitely recommend this place if you need a clean, reasonably comfy stopover near Monterey.

I booked this place because of the ratings on Tripadvisor. I still cannot understand why people like it. It was AWFUL and one of my worst hotel experiences ever!! The whole place is ugly and run down. The bed was so hard that I might as well have slept on the floor. The only good thing is that breakfast was... More

We only stayed one night but it was a lovely big room with microwave and fridge. Very clean bathroom. Very quiet, perfect place for a lie-in. Only downside was beds that were a bit too bouncy. Didn't realise they did breakfast until it was too late!

The room was clean, and the beds were comfortable. We were on the back side of the complex, and it was quiet. Breakfast room was welcoming, and a variety of breakfast options were available. This was a great place for our 1 night stay in Salinas.

Anna was very accommodating when we arrived around 0945, Told her I knew it was too early to check in but she found a ground level room (perfect because I'd just had a total knee replacement) that was ready to be occupied. Room was clean and pleasant. Only questionable items were the bath mat had spots of what looked like... More

We needed a place near Monterey (as Monterey is so expensive) and we found this place. I booked from the UK and had no real idea as to how good it was until we got there. Clean, modern with a wonderful room and pool with hot tub, we were pleasantly surprised and our location was great for Monterey and even... More

The laurel inn is perfect for what it is. Close to Monterey and Santa Cruz, clean and affordable. It's a quick drive from all the tourist attractions and quite a large hotel. There is a black bear diner on the property. The breakfast is nothing special but free. Just toast and pre-made waffles to heat up along with bagels and... More
