Decent stay

We finally arrived at the right best western (there are two very close together). I noticed the outside of the building was nice. There was enough parking even though we got there late. The inside of the best western was okay in the lobby. The breakfast area is right there when you walk in. Our room was the first one on the first floor and directly across from the elevator and staff area. I was not thrilled with our room location because it was a bit noisy through out the night. I was planning on keeping the fan on throughout the night but it did not work like that. Once the AC temp was reached the fan would turn off. The room was extremely clean and spacious. The bed was decent. Overall this is a decent place to stay in Salinas.

Hollister Bike Rally 2014

The hotel was very clean and the staff that I dealt with were very nice. The complementary breakfast was nice. The weather was to cold that Saturday, so I didn't get to experience the pool but it looked very nice. Nothing to really complain about except maybe the cost. A little more than I wanted to pay.

No heebie-jeebies!

I needed a room for a last minute, spontaneous trip to Monterey Bay Aquarium. This hotel fit the bill. It was a little overpriced but I'm sure that had to do with being last minute. It was priced closed to/slightly less than other comparable hotels for the same night. The room was clean and beds comfy. The breakfast was what you'd expect for a free breakfast. The walls are thin so you can hear the neighbors but that's pretty industry standard for this level of hotel. I will say that I have a tendency to be particularly critical of cleanliness and even borderline germophobic but I didn't get the heebie-jeebies at all and felt pretty comfortable during my stay so that says a lot.

Quiet but overpriced

I think we paid something like $100 for a standard room. I chose this hotel expecting to save some money and not to stay in Monterey, our actual destination. The area is nice, very close to the highway, but quiet and calm. The room was good enough, no thrills although. We didn't like the breakfast, the quality of food was ohhhh... Sometime in cheap $50-60 motels we had better food. I expected some more for the price, but didn't get anything special.

ok for quick stays

We were attending a wedding in Monterrey and needed a place to stay for a night. We picked this hotel because of good reviews and it had suites and a free breakfast. We stayed in room 211 a king suite. Room looked dated. Furnishings and decor did not match. Separate AC for living room and bedroom. AC in bedroom was cracked and not working so bedroom was hot. TV in living room cannot change channels. Otherwise it was ok, and we liked the free breakfast. We were also allowed to check in early. Hotel is right beside 101 freeway but we could barely hear any noise from our room.

Awesome Stay!!

This was a very pleasant hotel. The staff was warm and welcoming, and the room was very clean. Not to mention the free breakfast the next morning! Needless to say I will be staying here again!

Excellent value

Better quality furnishings than most for a three star. Only disappointment was the breakfast...barely warm, no serving utensils.
