Cleanliness, professional staff Checking was easy Good coffee
Clean and comfortable enough for overnight stay.
Rooms in front are right off the street and can get a little noisy
The bed's hardness.
Amenities used were clean and operable. Pool and jacuzzi temperatures were comfortable. Always nice to stay on site and have outdoor relaxation and activities. On site diner was good with charming atmosphere.
Bed was fine, clean. A better mattress would have made the stay more comfortable and all categories increase in rating.
Disappointed that there were no microwaves in the rooms
Nice Free breakfast.Comfortavle beds and nice size bedrooms.
The bedding clearly had not been changed. I ended up sleeping on op of the covers using a jacket for warmth.
the staff was very friendly and very understanding when I made my complaint and they offer to recheck the room and also offered to give us a different room. my reaction to the sheets left me to think I would not get any relief as I was sure they that it was due to the detergent or whatever they were using to wash their linen.
The bed was very very hard to both of us, just sitting on the bed but we decided to give it a try and stay overnight. After preparing for bed and laying in the bed for only a few minutes I became so itchy and scrachy that I could not rest well with the bed being hard and the above situation I had a miserable night, before the night was over I had to actually put on all my clothes in order to even rest in the bed without scratching my skin off my body. But to top everything off I stepped on the floor without my house shoes and felt those sticky is grimy is floor I ever encounter in a hotel in a long time all these points is a reason why I rated this hotel so low.
Great place to stay. Close to the coast but not with the coastal price.
We used the pool and jacuzzi and it was clean and nice. We just felt we needed more privacy as its in the middle of the parking lot.
Friendly welcoming staff, clean room, free parking, easy to find, close to downtown and easy freeway access, nice breakfast room.
Good sized room, clean and fairly quiet, comfortable bed. Wifi and breakfast included.
close to town
no cell reception
The hotel offers good value for money. It is clean and very comfortable. There is a restaurant nearby so it is a perfect place to stay over.
Friendly staff, nice room
We only stayed one night. It's basic but a good budget option for visiting the California coast--we drove from there to Big Sur and back.
Room door opens to the outside rather than to a hallway inside.
The breakfast was good. They had a good selection and plenty of seating. The TV channel line-up was also good, with a handful of channels in Spanish which was important to us. The beds were comfortable.
Privacy was an issue. The hotel does not allow "Do Not Distrurb" signs as a matter of policy. So you are not able to skip housecleaning for any reason. I did not care for the attitude and tone of the staff when I questioned their policy. They were not very nice about it. I guess they have had issues with guests in the past, and in my view the new policy is meant to give the hotel a way to do a visual inspection of each room daily. I find that offensive. I also had to cut my trip short unexpectedly and the staff was not very knowledgeable about how to change the departure date. At first I was told that it was not possible. It took talking to a couple of people to get the change done. The property is also quite dated. It's not in bad shape, but I was not impressed.
air conditioner worked. Restaurant within walking distance. Clean shower and bed. Inexpensive.
tattered carpet and furniture. No inviting character to the place. Front desk staff sufficient, no more. Clean enough to pass, not enough to inspire me to go there again for sure. . maybe. if on budget .
Room was clean, centrally located for all we wanted to do.
A/C didn't really keep the room cool, so it made it difficult to sleep at night. The room was sprayed with some type if air freshener and it triggered my allergies.
The Inn itself was fine; clean, fast wifi. Pool looked clean as well, however it was too cold when we were there to use it. Salinas is a very boring town; nothing to do there. If the weather is good, you can relax by the pool and then the Inn would be a great choice. I would prefer staying in a warmer region next time (a bit more south or away from the coast) so you can enjoy the facilities. If you're planning to stay in Salinas anyway, I would recommend the Laurel Inn motel.
Unfortunately the weather wasn't great. Of course that's not Laurel Inn Motels fault, but do know it's going to be much colder here than for instance in Pismo beach/ Paso robles/LA (where we came from). If you go a bit more inland, you'll probably have nicer weather. A pool is great, but when it's too cold (in the middle of summer) why pay for it..
Room and amenities were nice. Staff were friendly and helpful.
one of the beds had been slept in and left a lot of hair in the bed. we received replacement sheets quickly.
The bed was comfortable, the shower was great and the included breakfast was really good!
Dinner at the big bear diner wasn't the best meal we've had...
Clean room, nice pool and spa.
Convenient access to major road, nearby laundromat, convenience store, restaurant
Rooms were a bit dated, not the cleanest -- gave off quite the motel vibe, but fine for an overnight stay.
Clean facilities Good value
Noise from the street
