Recent guest reviews

Nothing bad to say, breakfast was great, staff greated me as soon as i stept thru, and coming from someone who is in the customer service industry I greatly appreciate it everything I'm knowledged.

Clean, friendly staff, quiet, and free parking and breakfast.

very nice room sofas where stain breakfast needs a little help with adding a little more time to the current time

Hotel staff was rude. Room was small and not worthy the money. Fan didnt work.

As you get to Salinas you have doubts if its a good place to stay, but once you get to the Holiday Inn, it makes Salinas a good place to stay over!

Very good hotel for a stay in transit for one night

The room was very nice and clean. The location was a little hard to find in the middle of the jumble of the freeways. Too far from the good vies and beach. If I have another chance to visit that area, I'll choose a hotel near seaside.

Staff were great. Hotel is very clean. enjoyed swimming a the pool.

It's a little bit too far from the Monterey. Clean and spatious room with comfy bed. Breakfast was free but there are some reasons to get something free.

Hotel was pretty good ! I was in Monte Rey so the location wasn't the best for me.

Staff were professional and courteous; hotel suite was clean and comfortable. Exactly what I needed - I'll return when I need to travel to Salinas for business in the future.

The hotel staff were so polite and accommodating. The housekeepers did a nice job tidying up the room while we were out. The breakfast was much more than I expected...eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy, bagels, pancakes, sweet rolls, etc. All hot and/or fresh with a selection of beverages, both hot and cold. Although located near Highway 101, I did not hear any freeway noise during the night. Overall, a very nice experience.

If you decided on visiting Monterey last minute, this is a great hotel, the rooms are very nice and spacious and the kids loved the swimming pool...

Enjoyed my stay. My room was comfortable. The hotel provided a nice buffet breakfast. Loved the delicious cinnamon rolls!

nice hotel, indoor pool, ok comp. breakfast, quiet location, but nothing around it. Located at the end of a dead end road that only has gas stations and about ten other hotels on it. plan on driving a ways to find restaurants, shopping, or sights. If you need to stay in this immediate area this is the place to stay, but if not stay closer to the coast.

We were late booking our trip and couldn't find anything at all in Carmel or Monteray! We decided to stay here because it looked nice, they had a hot breakfast included in the room fee, and it was a half hour from the destination we wanted, The location is close to the freeway, not a very picturesque neighborhood but the hotel is right next to a field that is actually very nice to look at (we had a room facing that). I can't say enough good things about the hotel itself however!! The room was beautiful, perfectly clean, had very nicely designed furniture (like a night stand that doubles as a table). The staff was very friendly and accomodating and it was really a nice hot breakfast with eggs, biscuits, sausage, pancakes and everything else you could want. We actually thought about staying another day just because we liked the room so much! I would definately recommend this hotel.

nice place to stay. hot breakfast includes hot eggs and either bacon or sausage. clean rooms, good location, and great personality/service from the staff. I will be back.

Neat, Clean, state of the art decorations and ameniites. Well worth the money. Looks like a modern apartment! Flat screen tv's, deluxe furniture, etc.

The kids were all around the place kind of thing but the staff were understandable, offering assistance.

The Hotel location was great, personnel was awesome, and let me tell you my kids love the buffet brekfast they have. I would definetly stay there again for my next trip.
