Hotel was welcoming with friendly employees that provided excellent customer service. Room clean and comfortable. Breakfast choices were great. Being a gold member appreciated the welcome gift of bottled water and snack. That was a very nice touch. Beds were comfortable!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 16 January 2017 via mobile

I booked this through booking.com so wasn't sure about it. When I checked us in Larry, the front desk manager, told me he had upgraded us! No reason, other than he's just a nice guy I think! When we got to the room it was a one bedroom suite with fireplace and balcony! Just lovely! I asked if they had...

My family had to take a last minute trip due to the untimely passing of a close cousin. My first contact was verry warm and accommodating, the receptionist did eevrything she could to worm with me to get a room that would fit my budget and timeline. Overall a verry good experience.

It's clean and simple, with friendly staff. There's locally-made sculpture in the lobby, which the staff person at checkin told us a bit about. The breakfast area isn't particularly nice, but overall it's a fine place along I-5 to stop at.

Staff was very friendly. Upon check-in, my free night voucher was not working and the manager and front desk staff helped to resolve it as quickly as they could. I will definitely be staying at this location in the future.

Great place for a nights rest, just outside Monterey in Salinas. Close to the 101 Freeway and about 20 minutes from Monterey. Room was large and clean. Friendly staff and good parking. Breakfast in the morning and fast food close by.

Every time I have stayed at this hotel, I have only experienced great staff and rooms. The staff is friendly and professional. They will recommend places if you ask. If you need something they will get it or point you in the direction to go. The bed is so comfy(I wish I had it at home!) Highly recommend this hotel!!

My wife and I spent one night here. The man at check-in was knowledgeable and welcoming. When we departed next morning we were asked if everything was OK. It was. The beds were comfortable and the room and bathroom were clean. Good place for a family. Didn't try their complimentary breakfast but McDonald's is an easy walk across the parking...

The rooms and staff are excellent. The location is centrally located to get around Salinas. The room, bed and pillows were very comfortable. They had a nice selection for breakfast, waffles, bagels and other choices. Parking could be better, check with the desk clerk re where to park.
