Way more than I expected, pix do no justice!!!

Posted Sep 8, 2014
1st and foremost, Rico in the breakfast room AWESOME customer service, he was polite, warming and did waaaaay more than expected and I'm sure does more than he is paid to do. Talk about going above and beyond, my husband NEVER compliments people's work habits, but he personally thanked Rico for his outstanding customer service. Aside from that, the room was nicer than the pix, uhmmm I was a little thrown back by the jumongous old school tv lol, but other than that, room nice and spacey, clean, my kids loved the spa and pool! !!!!!! ALREADY PLANNING ON BOOKING MY NEXT TRIP THERE (;

Great little hotel

Posted Sep 4, 2014
We stayed here before a trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. I was very pleased with this little hotel. Convenient location, very clean bathroom and friendly staff. The breakfast was very nice. My family would definitely stay here again.

Location: Downtown Salinas has a few interesting shops.
Great light in bath and sink area. Wonderful updated breakfast area and many selections. Walking distance to low key restaurant - right off interstate.

Nice hotel on the way to Monterey.

Posted Aug 28, 2014
Pros: Very friendly & helpful staff. The airline lost our luggage and the front desk staff bent over backwards to assist us while waiting for it to arrive.
Location: Not much in the immediate area. Great diner next door to the hotel. Cali visitor center down the street.
We were looking for a clean, quiet spot for one night on the way from San Francisco airport to Monterey and this hotel met our expectations in every way.

Great rest stop

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: Location, staff, cleanliness
Cons: Mattress was a bit uncomfortable (could feel springs) - a thicker pad would help.
Location: We were just passing through - location was convenient.
Hotel staff was very friendly and warm. As other reviewers stated, the location is great - super close to the freeway - but it felt safe. We had an inexpensive and fun dinner at the diner across the parking lot. The only negative for us was that the beds weren't super comfortable, but for the price and cleanliness I would stay again.

Pros: the proximity to events and the restaurant on the same lot.
Cons: Actually nothing...an older motel , but clean.
Location: close to the sports center, town center and major roadways.
hotel close to my event. The restaurant next door had the friendliest staff I've encountered ever. They were attentive, hard working and genuinely concerned about the customer's well being. I give them a 10. I booked 3 nights at the motel, but they only gave me two vouchers for the in house continental breakfast. I left earlier than the breakfast the third morning and did not seek a third voucher.

Lots of amenities nearby.

Posted Aug 8, 2014
We were travelling to San Francisco International airport early the following morning and this location was ideal for us. The children enjoyed the pool and the diner adjacent offered a good family dining experience. Breakfast was also well organised.
