Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was great. Bed comfortable. Stayed 3 nights and should have stayed 4 as the room at comfort inn in Monterey was a dive compared to my room here.

Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Location was perfect since we were attending a softball tournament 2 miles away.

It was perfect for our family.

All we wanted was a nice place to stay for our kids to play at and have a nice breakfast. The hilton provided all that and more. Everyone was so nice and friendly. And the pool was perfect. Our room was great. It was a real treat for us.

Very clean

Very clean and quite! Nice indoor pool and spa. we were very worried when we pulled up because it is right next to the freeway - pleasantly surprised that you couldn't hear the freeway at all. Morning breakfast was very nice. A ton to choose from. The staff was always checking to make sure all items were fresh and fully stocked. A bit far from Monterey - it took us about 30 minutes to get there but it worked well for us.

Nice Hotel but location iffy.

Pros: Free breakfast
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast had a nice variety of food available. Indoor pool and exercise room were clean and not ever crowded. Location was just okay. Close to freeway access which was great but next to a agricultural field. Smell from field was strong and we found a huge spider in the room. Room was okay but could have been little cleaner. Found a used toothbrush on the floor next to the couch.

We slept well at this great hotel

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
This is a great hotel. Easily accessed just off the freeway. Our room was quiet and clean with nice furnishings. Bed was super comfy! We slept great. Didn't get a chance to try the free breakfast or pool, but maybe next time :)

I would definitely stay again.

I wanted a quick Christmas getaway with peace and quiet and no problems and that is what I got at the Salinas Holiday Inn Express. Staff courteous, friendly and helpful. Room was excellent for my purposes, Spacious clean and quiet. Morning breakfast was a good start and I got good use from the pool and fitness room. I chose this location because for what I wanted to do it was centrally located with the cheapest gas in the area at an Arco, a diner and In 'n' Out (it's a California thing), all within .1 mile from the hotel. All the reviews I read on this hotel were positive and, for my purposes, I was not disappointed.

Nice hotel

It was a wonderful hotel, the rooms were nice and clean and they had free breakfast! It was pretty nice. The only thing is that the bathrooms were so smelly! Also the safety was really bad, and the pool was out of order!
