Check in: Upon arriving to the property, there were 4 people in front of us. The two clerks were inexperienced and should not have been left alone to fend for themselves. There was not a manager/supervisor in site to come and assist the clerks. Took over 15 minutes to get checked in. The vehicle pass was not available (that all... More

Stayed there two nights while I attended Pebble Beach Pro AM. I normally stay in Marina but waited too long to book this year, so thought I would try something in Salinas. Friendly staff, professionally run. Room beds are a little firm and it lacks some amenities (no coffee maker or extra pillows in room) and you have to pay... More

The motel is clean and well-located and the people friendly enough. But they insisted on photocopying my license. That violates California state law, and they are liable for a $250 fine if convicted. But the manager said that if I didn't allow the photocopying, I could not stay. Here's the appropriate section of the law, California Civil code 1747.08: They... More

I stayed there for 5 days while attending the Monterey Jazz Festival. People behind the desk were very courteous and helpful to my needs. The room was excellent, very clean and well cared-for by the staff. There were many fire fighters at the Motel from the fires in Carmel and the Monterey-Salinas highway...nice to see these guys in action with... More

Average motel with newer rooms. Lack of towels but the beds comfy and clean. Wood floors are great for cleanliness as well. Everything works and the room looks fairly modern. Quite noisy in the area and book early if there are a lot events in the area. I'd stay again for the price and convenience of 101 and getting to... More

Let's start: no coffee pot, broken phone, dirty floor, dirty bathtub. Then add bed so soft the mattress sank at least 3 inches when you sat on it, flooring was laminate wood with no carpet and the only toiletry provided was one bar of soap.
