I found the hotel to be very clean and comfortable. All the staff were extremely friendly and professional. Highly recommend this Best Western should you be in the Salinas area. Very easy access from the freeway yet very quite and comfortable. I will definitely be back.

A fair and clean best western but overpriced for what it was and where it was. breakfast not so great no meat and pretty much a pancake and cereal. no brown sugar for oatmeal and no regular oatmeal. All in all a fair place for a nights sleep.

This hotel is very adequate for a decent price in what is a rather expensive area. It is clean with comfortable beds and easy access to all the "must see" things on the Monterey peninsula. Don't expect much for the breakfast provided. Small breakfast room with limited items offered. There is a McDonalds in the parking lot if you wish... More

I was very surprised at the beauty of the hotel when we arrived. I was even more surprised of the cleanliness and overall comfort of our room, but when I laid on the bed I was super happy and the pillows were the best, without being flattened out with overuse. I would recommend the Salinas Best Western to anyone.
