1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Sheets not clean, toilet leaking, no towels, no pillows, no remote control. The non smoking room with a cigarette butt still there. Recepcionist was so helpful and nice, but her supervisor not. Did not refund my payment because I was in the room for more than hour. Even when the room was not what I paid for. Not an option anymore.

There was blood on the sheets. We stayed over two nights they didn’t give us housekeeping. We got back to our room at 1a.m and the door was wide open. It was the worst hotel stay we have ever had.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
There’s a reason there is a security guard on the property and no guests should be treated the way we were, we’re two moms with a child staying for the night as we pass through Salinas so no, we’re not prositutes just because my child was in the car asleep and you just saw 2 grown women checking in the middle of the night. My friend lost her wallet at the gas station that afternoon and did not physical have her any picture I’d, except one of her credit cards, but did have a picture of her drivers license and yet she was refused to be able to stay. Are you kidding me? I paid for a room for 2 adults and 1 child and in the middle of nowhere checking in around 10:30pm and still

2/5 Poor

Traveled with partner, Traveled with family
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Noise pollution was terrible. Regular decibel level speaking from neighboring rooms, outside, and above all came through the walls. The restroom fan made a horrible noise whenever in use. Rat traps at every other door outside throughout. Parking lot was very dirty/messy. Broken and busted up parking stops throughout.
