Stayed here on our way northward so just for one night. The room interior was nicely decorated in the new muted earthtones and was very clean although the disinfectant smell was strong when we arrived. The building is between the 101 in back and the main street of this area. A bit noisy when outside but no noise inside. Good...

I was amazed how clean the rooms were and right off the fwy and gas station next door, convenient! They were repaving the parking lot at the time so half of the lot was closed and parking was limited but other than that, great weekend hotel. Friendly staff as well, A++!

The room was nice and clean. We felt it was very pricey at $159.00 a night, however this apparently is normal for the Salinas area. I felt it was better than what i expected overall for this type of room. It was obvious that a larger company (Wyndham) owned it.

I was disappointed that the shower was just a dribble. The location next to the freeway was quite noisy. The employees were great, though.

The hotel itself was ok but if you are looking for a place to eat go the 2 miles up the road where you have a good choice of restaurants. The mexican restaurant next door was recommended but was probably the worst meal we have had our whole trip.

Nice hotel with a good breakfast. Good location just off I 5 and about 20 min from Carmel and Monteray which have much more expensive accomodations.

My family and I stayed here a few nights on our trip to California in July. The staff is fantastic! Very polite and helpful. Breakfast is wonderful. Rooms are comfy and clean. Conveniently located next to a gas station and restaurant. Also a short driving distance to the shopping mall. Salinas is a good location for driving to Big Sur...
