Our company has a job in Salinas and have been working on the weekends and  during that time we have been staying here for the last month.  The manager, Anna, has been so helpful getting our accommodations taken care of and Dev was great in getting our account setup with a corporate discount.  We also brought our daughters down and while...

That's our only complaint the elevator was out before we got there we stayed there a week and it was still out when we left. It is unexcuseable for a 3 story hotel in California to not have the elevator fixed in that time period. The front desk staff and housekeeper where great! Had we known that we would spend...

Amazing!! Freeway junctures made it a little difficult to get on the right road, but easy to find after that. Once we arrived the front desk staff was very accommodating, and knowledgable about the surrounding area. BEST OF ALL was the indoor outdoor hot tub. And its super close to the ocean, so convience is not an issue.

We have stayed in this hotel several times in the past and have always been happy with the amenities and staff. This weekend, however, we were very disappointed. We stayed for two nights in the presidential suite. When we arrived and asked for extra towels for our family, the front desk clerk delivered a bath towel and informed us that...

The staff at this hotel are probably the worst I have encountered (yes, included the one who smoked in my room). Say yourself some money. Do not book here.

The HIE in Marina is a comfy place to stay - close to Monterey, Carmel, and the other fun tourist spots in the area, but far enough away to enjoy a quiet evening out of the hustle bustle. There is a park with walking trail across the street for quiet morning and evening strolls. A Super Wal-Mart right next door...

I have been in and reviewed many HI Ex's through out the western portions of the U.S. Being a Priority Club member, this brand is one my family of 5 know what we need and should expect. Its not always met, so I tend to review those that I would take my family and friends too. This is one of...

We stayed in a junior king suite on the first floor. The room was very spacious. It had a nice-sized flat screen TV. The bed was more comfortable than it looked. The water pressure in the shower isn't too bad if you adjust the shower head properly. The walls are kind of thin - I could hear my neighbor's TV,...

The location was exactly what I wanted. My parents live in Marina and I needed to stay in a hotel close to their house. I only stayed two nights (arrived late and left early each morning) so I didn't see much of the hotel. My room was large with a king size bed and immaculate new bathroom. I used the...

The 1st floor of this hotel is actually subterranean; the lobby is on the 2nd floor. My 1st floor room was dark and noisy, but adequately furnished and decent-sized. The in-room mini fridge would have been a nice touch except that mine made a really loud ticking noise that kept me awake until I finally got up and unplugged the...
