“Clean, Simple, Modern”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

This was one of the better Courtyard stays I've had. This property featured the updated lounge interior and had a nice bed in a spacious quiet room. Things were clean, although the carpet had a weird feel to it. This was overall a quick and easy stay -- given the great price, I would not hesitate to stay here again, especially as this represents a cheap alternative to staying at pricey hotels in Monterey. You have a car anyways if you're visiting Monterey -- a 10-15 minute drive to a hotel is totes worth it.

The hotel room was nice, in a very nice setting outside of Monterey. The hotel also included an indoor pool, but it seemed small and there was already a family occupying it.

The biggest issue I found was that breakfast was not free; in fact it was very overpriced. Fortunately there was a Starbucks a short drive away.

Otherwise the location was great, there was sufficient parking, and the facilities in our room were pretty decent.

Room Tip: One side of the hotel faces the Residence Inn, while the other side probably overlooks the town. We...

Thank you for your recent comments. We are just a short drive to beautiful Monterey. Our indoor pool on a busy weekend could give you the impression it was small. The warm water heated at 82 degrees does become inviting. Join us during the week and find yourself in the same pool feeling twice the size as this is when our Corporate clientel choose to stay dry. Our new Bistro concept...offering Starbucks brewed coffee and Specialty drinks could meet the needs of most people, our menu is cooked to order fresh from the start with a varierty of choices. There are many options when booking your stay, and some do include breakfast, if this is important. Thank you again and we look forward to hopefully a future stay.

We booked this hotel (name your own price $64) through Priceline. We arrived, was able to get a two queen room, which was spacious. There was plenty of parking, restaurant on site, microwave in lobby, and friendly staff. Each staff member was courteous and made eye contact with a smile. The indoor pool is large, fully stocked with towels and open til midnight! We had a great stay! Only 15 minutes from Monterey. There are also several places to eat and shop in the area as well. The room was clean and we had a great stay! I'd recommend for business or to families.

I stayed here for a night on business. Counter person was very nice and I was offered 2 items from store for my silver Marriott status (Sam Adams x 2). Nice surprise! Also nice breakfast (not included) and Starbucks coffee. Located right off the highway through Salinas. Great location and great stay.

Chose this hotel as cheaper than staying in Monterey and easly to get to (just of 101).

Hotel was clean and appeared to have been recently upgraded. Staff friendly and willing to help. Interactive board on local restaurants and amenities in the lobby way. Close proximity to a wide selection of restaurants and Walmart / Costco (useful for kids sports trips if forgotting stuff)

Only compaints were the Bistro, over priced, slow and well below the Breakfast offerings of other similar hotel chains. Also TV was to the side of the bed and difficult to watch. Looked like they tried on include a desk and couch in a small room and lost some of its usability.

This is a decent property with esy access to H101 and plenty of shops. Sits right next to the Marriott Residence Inn which seems odd to me to have 2 near identical Marriott properties next to each other.
Clean and well run. I'm guessing its been fairly recently renovated as everything looks clean and new and I don't thing the building is that new. It hs the new style reception / lobby where you can get a drink and food.
Over all pretty good.

Great comments! and Yes we just completed a full renovation of all publica areas, new Restaurant, state of the art fitness equipment and full service business center. We are located next to our sister property the Residence Inn by Marriott, we compliment each other in many ways, if your looking for a quick trip in to town the Courtyard has the amenties to meet most needs during your short visit, or if you plan to stay for a period of time and prefer the larger home away from home feeling with full kitchens, seperate living space give the Residence Inn a try.

We booked this hotel last minute through Priceline.com. We were staying in Salinas to see the motorcycle championships at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. There was also a Rodeo in town. The hotel was packed but always very quiet. They have an indoor swimming pool & spa open until midnight. The whole family was able to enjoy a late night swim after our busy day. The rooms were very nice and the shower head and water pressure was excellent in the bathroom.
