I was in the area on business for about 3 weeks. Because of our type of business, we sometimes must come into an area without notice, so we had no opportunity make advance plans. The weekend we arrived, all hotels in the Monterey area were book due to multiple large events in the area so we landed at this motel... More

We checked in around 10pm. Check in took about 10 minutes even we had made reservations a week ago. There is a charge for wifi, I don't know why. Went to our room and it was ok. The toilet hasn't been scrubbed for a while, black marks around the bowl, the bed skirts were stained. The room was brightly lit,... More

Poor is ONLY because Felicia was wonderful, and the manager did the right thing. I received a full refund, and I have been in the hotel business for a long time to have to complain and be as upset as I was to go talk to the desk. I only waited until I was checking out before 3am because if... More

Stayed here for two nights on a weekend in August, 2016. Front desk girls look like they were in a hotel management degree program at the local college. Lots of "deer in the headlights" moments on check-in but was not too bad. Very basic rooms with next to no amenities. Mattress was surprisingly comfortable, however. Again, very basic and I... More

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.

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
