Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bald60 Very Relaxing and Restful Hotel
Room was very well furnished and laid out. Worked out great for me. Lots of hot water in the shower, Clean and smelled clean, as new not a chemical cover-up. All areas of the hotel were nice, from the carpeting to the wall lighting, etc. Breakfast was in a nice area. Food selection was good and well cooked and presented for use. Staff kept it clean and stocked..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kansas Jayhawk-12 Bed and Dinner
The hotel amenities were nice and the hotel was very clean. However, if needing to use the sofa-pull-out as a bed, be aware that the mattress is very thin, and the springs and fold-bar is uncomfortable throughout the night. Ask for an extra blanket or foam-roll to place under the bottom sheet for padding.
The greeting clerk gave us a strong recommendation for a local dinner restaurant, but when we arrived, the wait was more than one hour. We ended up eating at a nearby restaurant that was mediocre. Ask the clerk whether you need to make a reservation at the most popular restaurant in town.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Rocket man Sleep quality
I realize its tough to control your guests - the guest in room 211 (next door to my room 215) was up at 1:30 making all sorts of noise. I didn't call the front desk although I should have. I had a 7:30 am bike race and felt like junk when I got up.
I finished 21st out of 381 racers - with a better nights sleep who knows.......

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mickey D Polite but unfriendly.
Paul Paul Paul... you were polite but extremely rude and dismissive. You gave us the wrong directions to a dinner location and we had to stop and ask someone on the street who was much more acquainted with the area and much more helpful. This hotel has gone down hill. Everytime we asked for assistance with something Paul was polite and continually told us when breakfast was served and then quickly went back to his computer. Too fast of check in didn't even truly welcome us or acknowledge our priority club membership.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HansenTraveler Bad initial experience on check in and room change I did not want
This was the first time I have stayed at the Salinas property and not been completely satisfied with my stay. I arrived at the property at 2:20 pm from Sacramento only to be told by the front desk clerk my room would not be ready for 40 minutes. She said she could change my room to the first floor room 101. I am a woman traveling alone and never stay on the first level, but I was tired and had a headache and just wanted to rest after my trip. Initially upon arriving at the check in counter the clerk seemed annoyed that she had to take out her headphones to help me and was in no hurry to do so. She was not friendly. I also noted some other guests who appeared to be waiting in the seating area by the lobby waiting for their room to be ready also. I do not believe the room was not ready I think she just did not want to allow anyone to check in earlier than the 3pm check in time. I have never experienced that at any of the places I stay. Additionally, as I was walking in I saw three of the housekeeping staff leaving for the day. The lobby and flooring in the hallway to room 101 were filthy. The floors looked like they had not been mopped or vacuumed for the entire weekend. The next morning before 9:00 am a different front desk staff member vacuumed the flooring. At 9:30 housekeeping was knocking on my door to come in to clean the room. I find it especially irritating that I could not check in 40 minutes early, but an hour and half before checkout time someone was disturbing me to clean the room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pinnacles vaca Nice, but not great.
This location served our purpose which was to see Pinnacles National Park. We loved the indoor pool and convenience of breakfast on site and a suite for our family with two kids.
Downsides - could have been cleaner and the sofa bed was in terrible condition.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2013Familyof4 Amazing room!
We decided to try out Holiday Inn Express after having a bad experience with another hotel close by a few months ago. We booked two nights 10 days in advanced which saved us some money. The price was a steal, so I didn't expect much. The place turned out to be beautiful, staff was amazing, the room was huge and very modern. We loved the continental breakfast and the kids enjoyed some free space to run in the room. Pool, hot tub, and gym looked great, but we stayed on Christmas and didn't have much time to check it out. We visit Salinas often and for ten dollars more, we will defiantly be staying here every time. Very impressed!

This in my experience is one of the best Holiday Inn's I've stayed at. I was very surprised of the room quaity upon opening the door to my room. The staff was very professional which made the experience that much more of a pleasure. After working long hours it was nice coming back to this property. I would highly recommend stay at this facility.

This location is the cleanest hotel in the area. The staff is awesome and takes service to another level. I'm on the road a lot and love the fact they use my first name as soon as I walk in. It really makes me feel welcomed (and a little bit of home). Thanks for always keeping a high standard!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Raiderdave Clean room and comfortable
I travel for work so I really like their king bed room . Good size room . They have coffee available in the eating area 24 hours which is great for me because I get up at 4:30 and leave at 6 right when the breakfast starts . The breakfast is ok , it's something which is better than nothing but its microwave eggs and sausage and bacon for food . They do have fresh bananas and bagels though . They do have a small gym , nice to get in a little exercise . I'd recommend this place .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hootiep Great Place To Stay!!
My Family and I enjoyed our stay here. I was here for business and brought the family along. There indoor pool house was fantastic, the kids loved it. The staff upgraded us to the Jr. suite, in order for us to have more room and because I was a rewards club member. It was nice that they had a business center available and didnt charge for faxing document. I also made a ton of copies and they didn't charge me for that either. Monterey was just 20 min drive away so the wife and kids enjoyed that. Overall just great few days with the family and got some work done too. Staff was friendly and were very helpful to my wife activities and things. If you have to stay in Salinas for work and want to bring the family this is the place!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GianSpeers Great value for your money
The hotel lobby was very clean and the staff were friendly. The room was clean and the decor was tastefully done. The location was easy to find and was close to local restaurants and gas stations. My family and I felt safe staying here. The only downside was the breakfast. Just a tad bit more attention to detail on the quality of food would have made our stay excellent instead of good. The eggs tasted like powedered ones and the sausage patties were horrible. The fresh fruit and cinnamon rolls were much appreciated.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by old27 OK No better
This is one of the most expensive HIEs that we have used and it was poor value for the money. I rate it as average on a general basis, but poor in terms of value.
No hair dryer in the room and a 15 minute wait for one in the morning. Halls and room were dingy and needed to be brightened up. The bill was not delivered to the room. If this was the norm I would not use HIE.
