Reviewed February 1, 2014

I came here with my school for a choir trip and almost everything was awesome! The staff was very kind at check in and was able to get us extra room keys due to the fact that four people were staying in each room. The beds were very comfortable after long days of rehearsals so that was a plus also. The only downside is that the official Marriott website was not updated after they remodeled, so we were given false information about breakfast. We did not find out until the first morning that breakfast was in fact, not provided and that we had to pay an overpriced amount of money for food. Yogurt parfaits were $3 and mediocre french toast was $9. They also had "Starbucks Coffee" served, but it was absolutely terrible. In the end, my choir director just went out and bought breakfast food items for the next morning so that she did not have to keep paying money. If you stay at this hotel you can expect great service and a comfortable atmosphere. However, if you want to eat breakfast in the morning I suggest that you either bring a lot of money or pack your own food.

Lots of money for small room no continental breakfast. Rooms basic, average bedding. Very small bathroom area my wife and I could barely even stand in front of the mirror the same time. It's Salinas where else are you going to stay? At least my car was here in the morning.

The location was only a few miles from Natividad Medical Center. There were many restaurants and shops close by. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. I didn't feel the water was hot enough in the shower; I had it as hot as I could make it. I did not eat at the bistro. Staff was friendly. There was some traffic noise with room facing the street so I would suggest a room on the backside of the hotel. You are unable to make a left turn out of the hotel parking lot so we had to make a right and then do a U-turn in the shopping center lot across the street each day.

Room 301, WOW what a roomy stay. Nice and quiet yet makes you feel at home too.
Nice bed and shower was quite spacious. Not enough cups and coffee anmedities, but what the heck, you cant have everything. The Bar lounge downstairs was abit over priced but again, what the heck, it still had Booze available! How about some food and lounge nuts? I still enjoyed my stay, would stay again .

Room Tip: Room 301, nice and quiet, away from elevator too.

Thank you for the great comments, I'm glad you chose the Courtyard Salinas as your place of rest. We heard you and have now added additional coffee and cups in our suites. Our Bistro located in the lobby offers the full as you mentioned as well as Starbucks! So tip back a few in the evening and let Starbucks kick start your day the next morning.

If you want a stylish, spacious, comfortable hotel, with great service and nice amenities (and a low price) stay here. We couldn't get a Saturday night in Carmel, so we stayed at this hotel the night we arrived. Are we glad we did! 30 minutes or so to Monterey or Carmel, a great and economical spot for a first night arrival. Service was so friendly and helpful. The hotel is remodeled and is cheerful and modern. Nearby restaurants are mostly chains, serviceable but not special. Outstanding example of a hotel of its kind. Would definitely return
