We stayed here in July of 2016. Our car was broken into sometime during the night. We were told upon finding it the next morning that their maintenance man found it at 1:00a.m. And that they tried to call my room but the phone was not working. They did not try to call the other room I had booked for...

I have stayed at this Holiday Inn and I would like to rate the management and staff not only the hotel. I had a family party December 2016 and the manager was super responsive and accommodating with my guests. We got a great rate and outstanding customer service. In August of 2013 we also used the hotel for our out...

My wife & I recently stayed here for one night. We were pleasantly surprised with the spacious room, cleanliness, comfortable bed, friendly staff, conveniently located off highway 101, and reasonable price. The included breakfast was definitely a bonus & lasted until 10am. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone needing a place to stay in the Salinas area.

We stopped here overnight unexpectedly as Highway 1 was closed. Receptionist was very helpful and we had a suite for the night. Room was large with 2 queen beds, sofa and coffee table. Breakfast was included. Did not use any of the facilities as it was a later check in for us. Would stay here again if in the area.

Stayed here one night on the way to our destination in Southern California. Very impressed. Newer, clean, great breakfast, great price. At first wasn't sure about the neighborhood, but it was at the end of a street that was very quiet and no traffic. Would definitely stay here again if ever need to in the area. Right off the freeway...

This location is right off the highway. The area itself doesn't look particularly exciting but if you just want a clean, nice place to sleep, this is it. We had rooms close to the highway side but could barely hear any noise. Bed was large, room was clean, check-in quick, breakfast good. Overall, very comfortable stay.

This Holiday Inn Express is clean quiet and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was decent but nothing to get excited about. Several fast food restaurants are close by. For a one night stop close to Hwy 101 this is an excellent choice.

As I often find in my travels this was yet another really nice Holiday Inn Express in a more run-down area of town. I found the staff to be very caring and professional. Parking was a little limited in front but I felt like it was a safe location. My room was well-appointed clean and relatively quiet for being so...

The hotel itself is very nice. Its conveniently located, as well. When I checked in there were two staff members behind the desk. I stood there confused for a moment because they did not even acknowledge me. When they finally helped me they were clearly not worried about customer service, and I am pretty sure one of the people was...

Hotel is nice and clean. Staff very friendly. Down side is the breakfast is not served until 6 a.m. and on a business trip and needed to be on the road by 5:30. Rooms were clean and quiet. Housekeeping very good. Elevator very slow. Better to walk up the stairs.
