A very nice place to stay. Clean rooms, good wifi and a great breakfast. The rates are great, the staff are helpful. My son loves the pool. I love to stay here. I recommend Best Western Salisbury to everyone.

I have stayed at this location a few times for an event nearby. The location is easy to find, the rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet. The hotel staff was friendly and very helpful, the lobby was nice and the breakfast was presented very well. I will stay in the hotel again when I am in the area.

The front desk staff were extremely courteous and helpful, I had to cancel one day of my stay and they were very helpful with that. The hotel is a very well used broom that knows all the corners and is almost quaint. So don't expect a 5 star facility but it makes up for that in the wonderful staff they... More

We stayed here one night so that we could visit the nearby National Steinbeck Center and check out historic old Salinas. We were traveling on a week day and were surprised to find that many of the other Salinas hotels were full, so ended up at this Best Western. Our room was clean and comfortable, and staff was very friendly.... More

Perfect stopover, with access a few minutes from 101 offramp. Among very best beds and room features anywhere, with elevator nearby. Truly reasonable stay, with tidy, well-supplied breakfast area. An easy day's drive from almost anywhere in state, and a minutes to Carmel, Hwy 1, and Big Sur.

I was greeted warmly by Larry at reception and he was efficient and courteous letting me know everything that I needed to know for a comfortable visit. The hotel is just of US 101 and not blessed with a wide range of local restaurants. The good news for me was that there is an In N Out burger franchise which... More

Very nice hotel, friendly staff, great amenities. We used the gym and had the breakfast. Upon check in we received a complimentary bottle of water which was most appreciated after a 5 hour flight from Hawaii. We are now staying at a BW+ in Carpinteria and are very disappointed. Salinas should be considered PLUS and Carpinteria should not!
