First off, let me make it clear that I was traveling with a friend. Nothing else described that other than "couple" or "large group."

I had reserved a room for two adults, but when we got there, we were told the room reserved only had one bedroom and no bath. My friend and I were not interested in sharing a bed, so we had to pay an additional $22 to get a 2-bed room. We were both carrying a bag over our shoulder and a rolling luggage and had to carry them up three flights of stairs.

The room was clean and spacious, but we both noted how odd it was that the sink for hands and face was in the bedroom and not the bathroom, which had a very slick floor, and I could not get hot water in it no matter how hard I tried or how long I waited.

The beds were comfortable and we had a relaxing night, and the service was very helpful.

We had both arrived in Salinas via Greyhound, and the hotel was only a couple blocks away, so it wasn't far. It also was not far from public transportation, the Steinbeck Center, Maya Cinemas, or restaurants. There was a cafe right next to the hotel's office, but we did not visit there, choosing to go to First Awakenings across the street instead.

"Great Location"

The hotel is was only one block away from the Greyhound and the local transit center to Monterey was not too far either. It was clean and reasonable price. This was our first time in the area and we choose this hotel because everything in Monterey is too expensive so stay here if you want something for a good value. The only bad thing is the hotel does not offer free breakfast but there is a amzing inexpensive breakfast/brunch place near the hotel within walking distance and the hotel staff is very helpful/friendly so just ask them for anything you may need or want. Overall we enjoed our stay.
