Reviewed 2 March 2014

I stayed at this Hotel after driving through the silicon valley area. It is a good Hotel in a very quiet location. It is a lot less expensive than the San Jose area, since the airport there fills up every hotel for several miles around. Downtown Salinas is an interesting place to visit. I would consider staying here again if...

My husband and I decided to stay here for our quick weekend get away. The facilities are up to date, clean, and comfortable. We had a very spacious king room with modern design. Free internet worked perfectly and TV had tons of great channels. The complimentary breakfast was delicious with hot eggs, bacon, and biscuit with sausage gravy. The hotel...

First off, I'm a business traveler averaging over 200 nights per year in hotels. I have stayed in numerous Holiday Inn Express properties throughout California and Nevada, and I've seen plenty of examples of them and the standards that each property maintains. Rarely do I actually write an internet review, but this location deserves it. I have stayed here close...

Los Angeles, California

Needed last minute reservations for a quick trip to Salinas and was initially very skeptical about the hotel options in this little town. Holiday Inn Express & Suites definitely had the best reviews and I understand why! Very clean, spacious and pleasant with free breakfast, parking and Wi-fi. Service was excellent and we were able to check in significantly early,...

Really CLEAN place to stay. The pool house is amazing as is the staff. A very nice place to stay in nasty, dangerous Salinas. I stay there a few nights every week and they treat me well. Stay here and you'll love it, too. There is truck parking in the back.

This is just a good, convenient place to stay. It is a little bit away from downtown and the neighborhood is not really nice, but that is about the only negative I can think of. The staff is professional and friendly. The indoor pool is nice. The suites are spacious and clean. The breakfast is good quality. Recommended for business...

Very nice hotel. It was very clean, nice décor, good beds. It was much nicer than I was expecting for a Holiday Inn Express. Would stay here again. There are a lot of restaurants and services in close proximity to the hotel. The breakfast was satisfactory.

Nice big room. This facility is located at the end of the street and seems to be in a very safe area. I was impressed with our room—clean and comfortable.

Oakland, California
Reviewed 30 October 2013

By far, the nicest hotel on this fairly straightforward hotel/motel row in Salinas. * Newish construction * Clean bathrooms w/o sticky fixtures * Perfectly good linens & bedding * Friendly & competent staff Definitely gets the job done as a fine roadside lodging. The nearby Taqueria Los Altos is a good spot. Also recommended.
