                    Friendly receptionist, good not too far location from the coast. Rooms were ok no bad surprise. Oposite of the hotel is a restaurant (typical Amrican diner) so for those who don't want to go out again, this is a convenient place.

                    If you need to print something they charge you 50 cents per page which I found quite a hefty fee.

                    That it had rooms available and the prices were back down to Earth after experience the prices in and around Yosemite. We also loved leaving.

                    We ONLY stayed here because we couldn't drive anymore and because it had rooms available. It is DIRECTLY on the highway. I mean there is only a chain link fence separating the hotel from the highway, which was whizzing by maybe 100 feet from our room, with large trucks all night. Pretty sure a couple trains went by as well. Oh my god the noise was unbearable. And to top it off, because we were put on the end, the sawdust joint put next door would blare dance music out its door every five minutes when someone would open the door for a smoke or whatever illicit activity was taking place in the parking lot. We got zero sleep, showered, and got away as soon as possible. The other guests we saw in the parking lot clearly had not slept either. Avoid if possible. Keep in mind that ALL the hotels on this street would have the same exact problem. I could feel the trucks rumbling by.

                    The managers were extremely kind and accommodating. I had a conference call that lasted longer than I planned the morning I was checking out, I called the front desk at 11:00 AM and asked if I could please have an extended departure, they told me it was not problem, I should take my time and enjoy the day. When I checked out the front desk manager was extremely polite and thanked me for choosing the Best Western in Salinas. :-) The breakfast was delicious, the room was clean, bright and cheerful, just lovely. The rooms were nice, clean and spacious. I enjoyed my stay and will definitely return.Thank you very much. Warm Regards. Julie G

                    Everything was lovely......I couldn't complain about one single thing. :-)

                    Needs a lot of work done in the room. Was given "Livingstone Suite" - carpet extremely dirty. Pillows were terrible. 2 pillows could not make 1 good one. I made this reservation because of the Best Western name. Not at all up to it.

                    6.6

                    Direct located close to the highway therefore a little bit noisy. Room was very warm without always having climate it wasn't feasible.

                  • Family with children
                    10.0

                    Great location just off the freeway and convenient location to In-N-Out Burgers and other restaurants. Room is very clean and the flat screen tv is a nice bonus.

                    8.8

                    Excellant service good location. Nice people on staff.

                    More tables for breakfast there was a girls baseball team in the hotel the day of our stay and more room would have been nicer.

                    The help and courteousy of the staff

                    Furnishings in the room some what sparce

                    6.6

                    Maintenance seems a little lax - toilet leaked.

                    6.6

                    Unfortunately the room we stayed in smelled of stale smoke. There was no other room available. We will not stay here again.
