Our destination was Monterey for my husband's business meeting, it was a four hour drive from our home, so we decided to look for a cheap but clean room for one night. I checked out the comments and most was about the cleanliness of the rooms for the price and it was a great price, $33 a nite on hotels.com. We tried to contact this hotel to let the front desk know that we were arriving late, but something was wrong with their phones. It was making us a little nervous. The hotel was right off the freeway and it looked nice as we got closer. We arrived around 8:30 in the evening and our check in was handled rather rudely by a male at the front desk. My husband & I were thinking about seafood but had no knowledge of where the best place to eat seafood without having to drive to Monterey. My husband said the guy didn't know where to send us nor did he act like he cared. My husband brought up the fact that we have been trying to contact this hotel and he did say that they were having problems with it all day. Our room was located on the back of the building and it looked like they put most of their guests there that evening. Our room was upstairs, thank goodness because we were tired and didn't want to hear footsteps above us. The room was clean, thank goodness and like someone said, "you get what you pay for," this is true but at least this was clean. The bed was hard, the pillow was tiny and the blanket was thin, but what can you expect right? As the evening progressed to morning, we would be awaken by people talking outside. I remembered reading a comment from someone about the, "thin walls," and around 4 in the morning we could swear someone was standing outside our room, having a conversation with someone. This conversation kept us awake and when I got up to look outside, they were no where to be seen, so we assumed it was the floor below us. Guests were coming in at different times in the wee hours of the morning and we got very little sleep and we both woke up feeling stiff from the hard bed. Needless to say, we couldn't wait to check out and head for Monterey where we knew a comfortable bed and pleasing room was waiting for us. Would I stay there again? For the price and clean room, yes, but next time, I will ask for a room away from the crowd and I will bring my own pillows and blankets. This was a perfect place to stay if you were planning on spending your day in Monterey to go to the Aquarium, Cannery Row or the Wharf. What we saved on hotel in Salinas, made up for what we spent on food in Monterey.
