Wonderful stay! We are in Salinas regularly to visit our new granddaughter. Friendly service and comfortable, clean rooms are a must--as well as breakfast. We have been very happy at this HIE!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by grj2014 Great room, friendly staff!
I would recommend this hotel. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful making some good restaurant recommendations. Rooms were very clean, functional and affordable.
It's only about a 20 minute drive from the beautiful Monterey coastline and Pebble Beach.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Weihnachtsmann Praktische Unterkunft für eine Nacht
Anlässlich einer mehrwöchigen USA-Rundreise wohnten wir eine Nacht in Salinas im "Holiday Inn Express". Wir hatten uns für Salinas entschieden, da uns hier das Preisniveau nicht so überteuert erschien wie in Monterrey und auch die Bewertungen anderer Reisenden positive klangen. Das gepflegte und neuwertige Hotel liegt etwas abseits im Industriegebiet, direkt an der Schnellstraße mit einem hohen Geräuschpegel. Das Einchecken verlief problemlos und unsere Bitte, ein leiseres Zimmer zu bekommen, konnte nicht entsprochen werden, da das Haus ausgebucht war. Die Zimmergröße war mit ca. 50 qm ordentlich und auch das funktionale Bad hatte eine gute Größe mit viel Ablagefläche. Die Zahnputzbecher waren leider aus dünnem Plastik. Das Bett hatte dafür eine sehr gute und feste Matratze. Auch das kostenlose W-Lan hatte eine gute Sendeleistung. Das angebotene Frühstück war sehr übersichtlich und es gab leider nur Plastikbesteck und Pappteller. Der aus einem Automaten zu entnehmende Fruchtsaft ähnelte eher einer gefärbten Wasserbrühe mit Geschmack. In der Nähe gibt es leider nur sehr einfache Lokale, die nur bedingt empfehlenswert sind. Wir können das Hotel mit leichten Einschränkungen weiterempfehlen.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Grumpy grandpa Security a concern at this property!!!
I rated this property high because it is a good value, but the reason I don't recommend it is because of the security. I had my cable lock cut and my bike stolen overnight. The front desk was very helpful the next morning but management has failed to follow up on request for help since we left. They seem to take the attitude of out of sight out of mind.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jokubas60 Fine hotel, short drive to Monterey and Seaside
Had absolutely no problems with this stay. This Holiday Inn Express in Salinas is a much cheaper alternative to staying in Monterey/Seaside/Carmel, which are of course very expensive.
The only item I marked down, and only slightly, is the overall value, and that's because I believe that hotels are too pricy all over California, even this one. But it is a good value overall, and a real money-saver for people spending time in the Monterey area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sondrali Experience Better than first appearance
The location and the fact the hotel is accessed from outside as a motel was a negative to me when I arrived. However, the rooms and service made up for this. I was surprised when I entered my room at how clean and comfortable it was. Only negative is again accessing the rooms from outside which makes it nosier hearing people come and go.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mighty Yahway Holiday Inn Express is reliable.
You can always count on Holiday Inn Express to provide a comfortable stay with lots of ammenities. I was in town for a wedding and the location was easy to find and the staff was friendly. I was just a little surprised at the room rates which were higher than other locations but I guess thats to be expected in California.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RenoBill Great Property - so so front staff
I always enjoy the property in Salinas, lately it is the staff that I am wary of and how I will be greeted. The newer staff treat me like I am a new person off the street, not someone who comes here quite a bit. Other then the staff the property is great always clean, great food, everything stocked and quiet so I can get business done.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frank-47 Good place to stay after much consumption of wines.
We needed a place to stay close to the winery so that after our participation in their annual Harvest Celebration we could sleep off the affects safely before driving home. Salinas was 'just up the road' and we all decided that Holiday Inn Express would be that place. Fortunately, we were given the 'quiet side' of the hotel and to our surprise, when we checked in, we were upgraded besides. Now that doesn't happen often and was really nice. Our rooms were much better than we expected. Clean, no smells, bathrooms were well lit and in very nice shape. Good parking out back, well lit and all in all, we enjoyed all of the amenities. Breakfast was good, coffee hot, 'ready made' eggs were 'ok', but the pancakes not so good. Regardless, not everything can be 100%. With all things considered, this would be our place to stay the next time we come down to sample Santa Lucia wines.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dutch2111 Comfortable room, kind staff, great breakfast
We enjoyed our stay at the Salinas Holiday Inn Express. It is well kept and the staff is professional and friendly. Breakfast was excellent: great choice of food, very clean breakfast area and a truly friendly and attentive staff member.
Since we were staying there during the Monterey and Pebble Beach car week, the price of the room was much - and painfully - higher than usual. But apart from that, the HIE offered good value.
