We checked in the Laurel early evening, the girl who checked us in must have missed the lesson on customer relations. The check-in was smooth but without any human emotion… The room was clean but a little to close to the Highway with some noise, but no that bad. As I was inspecting the room I found a used towel...

We stopped in passing through over night. We found it to be very comfortable and straight forward. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of parking, shops/restaurants are nearby. Perfect for what we needed.

I am a local Salinas resident who frequently uses the Laurel Inn when we have out of town guests. Usually there is no problem. However the weekend of Oct 15 was an exception. One of my guests had to have his room changed at 3AM because of loud music next door. He did contact the front desk and they elected...

I can't say how well you are treated here. The rooms are always clean and no unusual odors to bother me. The breakfast is great, accommodating a variety of food. The motel is easy to locate, right off the 101.

I've stayed here 3 times this year and it's a good deal. I like the staff and the hotel is clean. Best of all it is $88/night, thank you very much. The property is at least 30 years old so you can hear the people above you walking around. Hopefully they keep the same hours as you do, otherwise it...

My family and I stayed here while in town for the Alzheimer's walk. Very clean rooms, great prices, and nice complimentary breakfast. Conveniently located by hwy 101. Another benefit is the black bear dinner right next door. Would definitely stay here again.

Not new, but clean, comfortable, and lower priced than most of the other local motels with hood reviews. There is a swimming pool. A Black Bear Diner is within a couple of hundred feet of the check in the same parking lot. Near traffic but no noise. The building must have good sound proofing. The bathroom is good sized. The...

We stayed here because it was fairly close to Monterey (about 30 mins by car) and we didn't want to pay the outlandish prices in Monterey. The room was a bit dated but quite okay. The staff could be encouraged to smile when someone checks in. The breakfast was the usual - waffles, cereal, toast, muffins, apples and bananas etc....

We booked this hotel via Hotwire, and were guaranteed sleeping for the 3 people (mom, dad, teenage child) the reservation was booked for. When we arrived, we were given a room with a single bed. No extra cots/rollaway, not even a spare cushion. Awkward. Who do we point the finger at here? Hotwire insists they booked the room for 3...

We stayed one night while on a road trip down highway 1, and this was a great choice to crash for a night that didn't cost an arm and a leg like places closer to the coast. It's in a safe area, clean and obviously well managed. The staff was friendly enough and the room (while outdated) was large and...
