First of all they over charged me on the total price, adding yet more to the total. They also charged full rates for nights i didnt stay there. The bed had rubber sheets. The wifi didnt give any desent reception at all i had to go to a cafe. No remote control for the tv. Was woken very early by music from the manegers office. Was accused of smoking in my room when i really hadnt. The staff really didnt have any warmth or welcome in them.

Everywhere dust after painting

Staff was really rude, the facility was so messed and dirty.

Never received the wifi password and when I called the front desk (twice) to get it there was no answer (and the man didn't show when I went downstairs to ask). They were remodelling so the hotel was very noisy and dusty during the day as they scraped the walls and painted from 8am. Communal bathrooms were a long way from my room, were hard to lock and the shower took minutes to heat up. My room didn't come with a fridge or desk as were advertised which was disappointing. There were no windows on the fire escape so when people smoked out there the smell filled the whole building.
Close to old town Salinas with a few restaurants and cafes, and probably the cheapest option in Salinas.

Too bad, no attending, too dirty , bad located
17 February 2015
The best Mexican restaurant of California !! The brunch restaurant in the morning in front the hotel All very good and good prices
17 February 2015
Hotel is undergoing much needed renovations. The front door locks at 10pm. If you are thinking of going to be early on a Saturday night be advised the only way into the building is to ring the manager and the bell alerts everyone in the hotel you need in. Expect to be awoken by the bell, the other guests, smokers on the fire escape.
The location was nice and close to several good eating establishments and movie theater.

28 January 2015

16 October 2014

You get what you pay for. The worst $64 I spent. The room was clean, but the restrooms are a disaster. If you want to be able to sleep at night, spend a little money on a nicer hotel.

Everything hotel room was non smoking but still smelt horrible had to wash every bit of clothing after we left even what wasn't worn Must avoid this hotel we checked in at 9 left by 6:30

Es war die schlechteste Unterkunft (inklusive Jugendherbergen, Motels in der Ukraine und Hotels im tschechischen Hinterland) und gleichzeitig eine der teuersten in unserem Leben und das mit einem GETEILTEN BADEZIMMER (Sogar teurer als der Aufenthalt, ein paar Tage zuvor, im Ceasars Palace). Unser Pech war die gleichzeitig stattfindende Monterey Car Week die die Preise in die Höhe trieb und von der wir nichts wussten... Die Hotelfassade, die Lobby, der Weg zum Zimmer und natürlich das Zimmer sind in puncto Schäbigkeit kaum zu übertreffen. Im Treppenhaus sitzen verwahrloste, rauchende, alte Langzeitbewohner und der Duft der Etagenklos zieht gleichzeitig an ihnen und uns vorbei. Das Zimmerfenster genügt nicht einmal Hühnerfarmstandards, die davor hängenden Gardinen wurden anscheinend im letzten Jahrtausend gesäubert. Die Bettlaken stammen aus dem gleichen Jahr, wurden von unzähligen Gästen halbtransparent gerieben. Die Liste ließe sich noch deutlich ausbauen, aber ich denke mein Standpunkt schein klar zu sein. Übernachten sie irgendwo anders!
I'm trying to remember anything positive besides the working wifi, but no, nothing i can recall... We booked and payed for two nights but couldn't stand the secound one and left. We tried to discuss the situation at the reception and left without a consent. A Hotel without any standards in a city lacking everything you expected near Monterey/Carmel etc.

The staff are very rude. They treated us like we were a bunch of prisoners. They were so angry and I couldn't ask any question. It's true that this hotel is cheaper than others but any one deserves to be treated like human.
There's nothing about this hotel that I liked, I wish I had paid a little more and got a better one.
30 August 2014
Carpet was worn and discolored from dirt, which sums up the overall cleanliness of the hotel. Sold online w/ 2 queen beds but actually had 1 full and 1 twin. Room looked like a hostel, but we had our own bathroom. It might have been worth a $30 stay, so a fee that was over $200 is offensive. Keep searching, because you will definitely find a better place to stay!
A room was available while others in the area had no vacancy, and Salinas is conveniently located near Monterey and Santa Cruz.

The room was quite worn down and smelled a bit weird, also the walls are thin. There were some shady people inside the hotel. According to booking.com it was the only available hotel in the area and we payed way too much for our room.
Location is good and the people there are trying to make you feel welcome. The guy at the reception seems a bit weird, but he is nice. Currently they are renovating so things will get better. There are some nice restaurants and bars around.
28 August 2014
The hotel is horrible, the building, the lobby, the rooms. We paid a lot for our room which is far from being justified! 220 USD should have been worth 50 max.
The lady at reception was really nice and helpful. The town is convenient to reach Monterey and Carmel and offer lower prices. The location to downtown is good.

TV remote didn't work.
Kevin was very helpful with our luggage. Room was clean, shower was spacious.

Staff who took our bags to the room was drunk. Room was dirty, carpets were filthy, the whole hotel smelled musty. We were "upgraded to a private in- room bathroom- like that's an upgrade!! We had to ask for washcloths, but the guy didn't even know what that was! We were I. The third floor and it was hot with no ac so we opened a window. It had no screen and the bed was pushed next to it so if you rolled over, you could fall out!!! The bathtub was dirty and rusted. It was a nightmare! We did not stay because it did not deliver what it promised on booking.com. Travellers Inn should be condemned and taken off of booking.com website. It hurts your reputation. I will never use this service again, as I do not trust it now.DO Noy stay at travellers inn in Salinas, California!!!
Nothing at all

Perfect downtown location. In the middle of many destinations Not too far from hwy 1
19 August 2014
We did not like the location or general condition of the hotel. We were verbally abused by the patron. This is by far the worst hotel I have ever seen. When I said the carpets were filthy, he asked me, am I going to sleep on the floor? Frankly, I was afraid to walk barefoot on the floor. The patron ended by yelling at me that it was my fault I was tricked into making a reservation at the hotel by using a booking agency.
We did not like anything about this hotel.

Everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you want to know how it feels to stay in dump, then this is the place for you. It looked and felt as if this motel would be where prostitutes and drug addicts stayed. The neighborhood I thought was bad enough, but the moment I walked through the front door I wish I never had with carpets were dirty and torn. Once having climbed several flights of stairs (due to no elevator) I encountered bedding on the floor (from the room next door that was being cleaned) blocking my entrance. Upon entering the room, I found an almost full beer can. Everything looked run-down, dirty, and uninhabitable; I realized that I would not be able to stay. As I sat on the bed making phone calls (to find an alternative hotel), a bug jumped on my purse. At this point I didn't even care if I slept in the car. Finally, at 11:30pm I checked into a nearby Motel and was able to get a good nights sleep. The manager was unwilling to credit me any money, even though all I we did was sit on the bed :-( In all my 30 years of travel, this gets the prize for being the #1 Worst Place To Stay Award. Don't say you weren't warned.

Strong urine smell everywhere. Really everywhere. Feels like wherever you go you're in a giant public restroom. Sticky surfaces on refrigerator, bathroom, table, doors etc. "Manager" guy is very aggressive. When you complain about hotel "manager" responds by... OFFENSING YOU PERSONALLY. After I've contacted booking.com they marked my reservation as "no show". Trying to prevent me from leaving this negative review. I've had to contact booking.com again to override this trick. They got my 100$ for just entering into their "room" for no more than 30 seconds. Word 'refund' makes a "manager" guy really angry jumping up the stairs and yelling at you from there. You won't get any refunds.

Very cheap beds, tiny room, must share bathrooms with other guests. A cheap place to spend the night that might or might not be more comfortable than the car.
Owners were very nice and helpful. Not located too far away from Monterey or Santa Cruz, as long as traffic is taken into account.
