We were visiting Monterey and stayed here due to Monterey being fully booked. Would of rather slept in the car! The rooms were dirty! Sanitary towel in my duvet, carpet so dirty it makes your feet black, woke up itching. Dodgy characters hanging around outside rooms at night. Wouldn't wish this upon my worse enemy! Disgusting.

The hotel is okay although we have definitely stayed in better hotels for less money. When we got into the room it smelled a little bit like it was wet in there, however, everything was more or less clean. Left early in the morning, so it was okay.

Hotel is ok. Price should be lower for where and what it is. A little sketchy with people hang out side there rooms. All in all good enough. The room, sheets and bathroom were all clean and stocked with towels. Wasn't familiar with the area felt like I had to check on my car every hour.

Needed to stay in Salinas for business and found the Inns of California near the airport. The price was great, the room was clean, had a coffee maker, ref, and microwave to make my stay very comfortable. The staff was very friendly, helpfull and I would recommend this motel for your next stay in Salinas.

Had a stopover only but appreciated the clean room and super friendly staff. Requested a quiet room and had a great upstairs room nice and large and very clean. This hotel served it's purpose for us. Close to cheap eats and easy on/off the highway.

We had a layover in Salinas and happened upon this motel. The first room we had was very clean and spacious. We got a call from the front desk saying they wanted to switch our room; they had accidentally put us in a smoking room. So, we switched to a first floor room, and it is lovely. The furniture is...

Appreciated the efforts of the office staff, late evening, to help us secure a safe, clean, comfortable room during our travels. It is also a trucker's stop-over, so some rooms might be considered 'boxey' & sparse. The office staff was very responsive to our concerns and moved us to a better matched room immediately. The grounds are kept clean and... More

While the sheets and towels were clean the place looked dirty and run down, stains on the curtain, the carpets felt greasy and dirty to walk on, the lock on our door was broken. This was not a cheap place, but there wasn't much available the night we needed in Salinas. Also, the wales were paper thin and the neighbors... More
