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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CondomanagerSoFla THE BEST VALUE CLOSE TO MONTEREY!
We were in town for the Monterey Auto Week and chose this hotel for it's close proximity to all the Monterey Peninsula attractions - without the higher cost of "in town" properties in Carmel, Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach, etc. The place was immaculate, the staff couldn't have been nicer or more efficient, the mattresses were comfortable firm pillow tops, and the amenities were great. The full breakfast #not one of those "continental breakfasts" but a real hearty American all-you-can-eat breakfast# in a bright, cheery dining room was a benefit we didn't expect and a super way to start the day. Easy access off of Hwy 101, quiet location at the end of a cul-de-sac. Fast food restaurants are a quick walk up the street #for those late night snacks.# All in all, there was nothing about this experience that we would change. This hotel and staff exceeded all our expectations and needs, at a nightly rate that was more than fair and reasonable.

Our family of four, including two kids under age 10, are repeat, returning customers. We love this hotel. Easy to get on and off the highway. My kids love the large indoor swimming pool. Excellent facilities. We appreciate the room upgrade for being an IHG Platinum Level member. The free morning breakfast is outstanding for being free with the room. No complaints and will come back again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SweetTee7 Short Stay
This was a short stay for me sort... I was accommodated by the front desk and given a room. The room was seemed clean to the eye, but a closer look left some things to be discussed with the maid. Restroom was clean and amenities were present. The room did have problem with the lock. The staff tried to fix the lock however, it was still having issues staying closed. Overall it was was a comfortable stay. Staff was very nice and pleasant. The breakfast bar was great: well stocked and with variety of foods.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DBODAVIS Horrible Experience
The housekeeper used my personal charger in my room to charge their Iphone 5 while they cleaned my room. I know this because she left her charging cord plugged into it. I do not own an Iphone 5 so I know itwasn't mine. The only solution they offered me was to give me some free points on my IHG account. This is ridiculous. I didn't feel safe leaving my things in the room any longer.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by taylor341 Great Service and Nice Breakfast
The hotel and rooms were clean. The bed was
very comfortable with the selection of pillows and
triple sheets. There was a nice selection for
the breakfast that was included.
The staff was very friendly.
I still think that it was overpriced for the area though.
It was confusing when HIE offers the best price
available and better prices kept popping up on
my computer for the Salinas Hotel. I was not
offered a lower price.

Nice clean hotel with a very nice front desk. I wish the breakfast would have run a bit longer seeing that we were there for a softball tourney with many teams playing at different times but all in all we will stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MAJCPA8 Outstanding Stay!
I had an outstanding three-night stay at this hotel. A fairly new hotel (for hotel standards) or just in outstanding upkeep. Clean rooms. Good value for the price, beautiful indoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi. Excellent free morning breakfast with much variety. Free internet in room. Free newspaper (both local and USA Today). Free parking. There's an exercise room. Close enough to Monterey (only 30 minutes away). Being a IHG Platinum Elite level, I received a free upgraded room. A truly wonderful experience. Couldn't ask for more.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JustSomeGuy1 Bed not comfortable, Hotel very noisy, 1st staff encountered rude
Bed was not very comfortable, I would recommend they install memory foam toppers! Pillows were very nice though.
I could hear people in the other rooms and in the hall. It was very noisy and disruptive. Overall; I did not sleep well at all.
The thermostat on the wall did not function in connection with the A/C Unit, I had to manually open the A/C Unit panel and operate it there. Fan would not turn off automatically during the night once the desired temperature was reached. I had to get up multiple times during the night to turn it on and off.
We reserved our room under a group rate. When we called to book the room we were made to feel as if they did not want to give us the discounted group rate and the person on the phone acted as if we should feel guilty about the discount.
When we arrived to check in, (9:00pm) the front desk person was on the phone with another staff member who was helping her with the computer. At no point did she acknowledge me or ask me to wait, she just continued to talk on the phone for 10 minutes making me wait. I was the only person in the lobby. Very poor customer service! Once she did help me it only took 60 seconds.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ming26 Very good condition and great service
We came late in the night but we have to leave very early in the morning. The front desk people were very polite and helpful. The room we got was in an excellent condition, very clean and well furnished. We had a very comfortable/effective sleep, even just a few hours but felt fully recovered. We also enjoyed very much for a wondeful early morning breakfast.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Panda's Dad It what I wanted and needed in a hotel.
My daughter and I were in town for her softball tournament at the Salinas Sports Complex. We needed a place to relax, get cleaned up, sleep, and get a quick breakfast. The Holiday Inn Express was all of that.
The room was clean and well kept, and being that I needed to get her some early rest and in being the middle of June, I really appreciated the curtains that allowed me to darken the room to spite the late evening sun.
We also appreciated the DirectTV in the room, allowing me to find appropriate options for some TV time, and the in-room refrigerator allowed us to chill her Gatorades for the next day.
Finally, the coffee they served with the complimentary breakfast was delicious. I asked, and the server allowed me to fill my thermos on the way out.
The hotel is not fancy, but it was reasonably priced and was everything that I need a hotel to be.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mr. JCG Hotel needs TLC
I have stayed at other establishments and have experienced less problems than I did with my stay at this location in Salinas, CA. Even though the price was right, the hotel room itself needed some attention. The door lock / key card system rarely worked when it was supposed to which would force me to repeatedly enter my key card before the system would let me in. Beyond frustrating. The drapes did not allow for any privacy and allowed too much sunlight / external lighting into the room. The refrigerator was worthless and did not cool down anything and it also leaked from the bottom. The shower head just slumped and could not be adjusted to suit my needs. It was very effective in making a mess in the bathroom though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ronnie 1970 Delightful experience
This Holiday Inn Express had everything we look for in a hotel -
easily accessible from the interstate; located in a safe and quiet area; adequately close to many restaurants; comfortable beds; spacious rooms; quiet; excellent staff and a very good place with sidewalks for my morning walk .Breakfast is not a requirement since we usually only have coffee and muffins. But it was abundantly delicious. Several days after our stay I discovered that I left a new golf shirt in the room. When I called they said it had been turned in along with an iPhone charger, which wasn't ours, and they would Fed Ex it. I mention this because as much as we've traveled over the years, we've left numerous items at different hotels only to call and be told they couldn't find the item. We had our granddaughter with us and woke up the next morning and watched as broccoli was harvested in a field near the hotel. This was most interesting.
