A very reasonable stay. Spent 1 night here with a family of 5 and was not disappointed. Breakfast was excellent. Relatively quiet on the ground floor, but we left the bathroom fan running for white noise which worked perfectly. The surrounding neighborhood is a bit sketchy (don't go out walking after dark).

Stayed several nights and used the hotel as home-base for MotoGP weekend at Laguna Seca. It's fairly convenient to the track. It's a nice hotel, and we had great service. Plenty of amenities. However the overall value-for-money was lacking. We may have over-paid due to the CA Rodeo and the races happening. Full breakfast every morning, which was very convenient, but truthfully the quality was somewhere between 'ehh' and 'just ok' Pool and hot tub were nice (indoor, out of the summertime coastal chill) Great room. Very comfortable. Very clean.

We stayed at this hotel April 2013. On our last night of our trip. Location is by the freeway. There is a in N Out burger joint nearby, and 101 freeway is beside it. The hotel is fairly new about 5 years old I estimate. The room we got was nice and clean. The king size bed was comfy. But the sofa bed was lumpy and uncomfortable. The hotel has a pool and jacuzzi. The pool temperature was nice. But the jacuzzi needs some better maintenance because the water looked stale. This hotel is good for overnight stay or if you're on business, but too far to use as a base for Monterey trip. The breakfast buffet was OK, with scrambled eggs, breads, juices, coffeee, yogurt, bacon, etc. This hotel is perfect location if you are in town for Laguna Seca races. I would give it a 5 star overall if they had better sofa beds and if the hot tub was better maintained.

Dont miss breakfeast there is plenty to choose from. Only wish the TV was bigger. After reading other reviews before booking I decided to spend a little more money here to hopefully get away from whatever criminal element was going on at other hotels nearby. It worked! Its a newer hotel with modern ammenities. I would come back again if visiting Salinas in the future.

Driving to this hotel I was actually a bit worried because the area surrounding the hotel was pretty rundown. However, after driving past several unattractive hotels, I was very pleasantly surprised to arrive at the Holiday Inn Express at the end of the street. Walking into my spacious, clean room was a relief. The room was larger than I expected and very clean. I felt 100% comfortable. I probably would not stay at this hotel only because of the area. I did not know anything about Salinas but it is not the most appealing place. Next time I will stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Monterey only 20 minutes away and on the water. I have always had a great experience staying at all of the Holiday Inn Express hotels.

The hotel offered a convenient and inexpensive alternative to hotels in Carmel. This is a great stop over if you are touring Monterey and Carmel. There is not much to do in Salinas and the dining options are pretty run-of-the-mill, like the In-and -out Burger next door, so do your exploring and dining before you return to the hotel. Can't beat the price and location. The hotel was well maintained, and looked very new. I didn't get a chance to check out the indoor pool

The hotel condition was good, and very clean. The breakfast was decent, but many children running around (always at hotels with free breakfast). TV in room had many channels, but was a smaller 32 inch TV. Air conditioning did not work so we kept the window open all night. The hotel staff was not friendly at check-in or check-out. Not attentive to their counter and not what you would expect at this hotel brand.

We dropped our son off at college and stayed at this property. The managers of the property were professional and made our stay enjoyable. The pool and gym were modest in size but very functional. The breakfast was very well done. Tasty food and plenty of it. Not a honeymoon hotel due to the industrial neighborhood, but I would stay here again.

This is a typical Holiday Inn with good size rooms. The rooms are clean with a comfortable bed and pillows. It's location is near the freeway so a request for a room away from the freeway and elevator is best asked for in the booking. Breakfast was good with coffee, hot food and pancakes as well as yogurts and fresh fruit. Reception staff were welcoming and helpful.

Anlässlich einer mehrwöchigen USA-Rundreise wohnten wir eine Nacht in Salinas im "Holiday Inn Express". Wir hatten uns für Salinas entschieden, da uns hier das Preisniveau nicht so überteuert erschien wie in Monterrey und auch die Bewertungen anderer Reisenden positive klangen. Das gepflegte und neuwertige Hotel liegt etwas abseits im Industriegebiet, direkt an der Schnellstraße mit einem hohen Geräuschpegel. Das Einchecken verlief problemlos und unsere Bitte, ein leiseres Zimmer zu bekommen, konnte nicht entsprochen werden, da das Haus ausgebucht war. Die Zimmergröße war mit ca. 50 qm ordentlich und auch das funktionale Bad hatte eine gute Größe mit viel Ablagefläche. Die Zahnputzbecher waren leider aus dünnem Plastik. Das Bett hatte dafür eine sehr gute und feste Matratze. Auch das kostenlose W-Lan hatte eine gute Sendeleistung. Das angebotene Frühstück war sehr übersichtlich und es gab leider nur Plastikbesteck und Pappteller. Der aus einem Automaten zu entnehmende Fruchtsaft ähnelte eher einer gefärbten Wasserbrühe mit Geschmack. In der Nähe gibt es leider nur sehr einfache Lokale, die nur bedingt empfehlenswert sind. Wir können das Hotel mit leichten Einschränkungen weiterempfehlen.
