Loud area of town so sleep was a so so thing. The TV didn't work at all. The bathtub was cracked. Polite staff though. Great internet connection. Comfy bed. Really only using it to sleep so not a bad place to choose for price as long as you're not too picky.

Dear Eve S,

Thank you for taking time to review our hotel. Your feedback is very important to us. Im disappointed to hear that the TV did not work for you. I admit it is a bit complicated as you have to turn the TV and Cable box on for it to work. But once its on we do offer about a 100 channels and 10 HBO channels.
Generally Old town Salinas is a very quiet neighborhood in Salinas, I do apologize if there was noise the evening you stayed with us. I do hope to welcome you back in the future so we can make it up to you.

Thank you again, and please do not hesitate to call if you need any further assistance.
Sincerely,

Jay Jadav

Dear 803Don27,
Bed bugs are a world wide epidemic affecting hotels of all calibers. We do take this issue very seriously and take extensive preventative measures to be certain we don't have an infestation. That being said, our 3rd party pest control company has not detected bed bugs in over a year. And if we have had a potential sighting, we immediately place the room and surrounding rooms out of order, until a professional has cleared the room of any activity. And when bed bugs are found we discard the beds and the bedding and bring in new items, to ensure they do not reappear. I am new to the tripadvisor community and I regret not responding to you earlier, but I don't have any reports of this incident nor do I have your contact information. I do apologize if you felt in anyway ignored and I am certainly open to discussing this issue further.

Sincerely,
Jay Jadav
General Manager

This is by no means a fancy motel but the prices aren't fancy either. We stay here when we go to the races at Laguna Seca. It's about 15 minutes from the track and centrally located in Salinas. The bathrooms could use a little attention but the shower worked well. The TV worked just fine. AC worked. The bed was fine, we always bring a few of our own pillows when we travel by car.
We stayed here in September for the LeMans and in October for Rennsport Porshce Reunion IV. We'll stay here again when we go back to the ALMS in May.

The booking, check-in, and check-out processes were pretty quick and straightforward. The room looked a bit outdated but tidy and clean. My biggest complaint would probably be the bathroom. The tub was grungy and the walls and floors looked really old.

However like my title says the place served its purpose as a stop for a night. At least they had a self-serve waffle maker for breakfast!

The beds were comfortable and clean, the room was adequate and we didn't hear any street noise. However the parking lot is small and oddly shaped (not much they can do about it I know but thought it was worth a mention) and their continental breakfast is not very good at all. The coffee is flavoured water, the juice machine was constantly broken, the waffle iron was broken 2 out of the 3 mornings and there was NEVER anyone at the front desk to speak to about breakfast.
