My wife and I decided to take a last minute romantic weekend getaway down to Monterey - and since we were booking within a week of leaving, most of the hotels in the town of Monterey were booked up. So, we decided to try to find a hotel with a suite/jacuzzi in a town close by. The Best Western in Salinas was just a short drive from the Monterey attractions and we were incredibly pleased with our stay!
We booked a King-Suite (which was only 10 or 20 dollars more than their regular rooms), and stayed in the San Miguel Suite - which was spectacular. It had two large rooms - one the living area with couch, TV, fridge, microwave, and table and chairs. The bedroom was separate, and it included a spacious king-sized bed and a jacuzzi that was actually comfortable for two people! The room was very clean, and the staff was friendly, however the breakfast was subpar - just two kinds of cereal, a few danishes, watered down orange juice and coffee for the most part.
It's also worth noting that there are two Best Westerns on that block of Kern St, which was a bit confusing. The Salinas Valley Inn and Suites is not the BW next to the In-N-Out Burger, but rather it's two lots down behind the Quality Inn.
Overall, this was a great place to stay in the Monterey Bay area - especially with the benefits of the incredibly reasonably priced suite, since it was about half of the cost of staying in an equivalent suite in Monterey! We definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice room at a reasonable rate in the Monterey Bay area.
