Room 301, WOW what a roomy stay. Nice and quiet yet makes you feel at home too.
Nice bed and shower was quite spacious. Not enough cups and coffee anmedities, but what the heck, you cant have everything. The Bar lounge downstairs was abit over priced but again, what the heck, it still had Booze available! How about some food and lounge nuts? I still enjoyed my stay, would stay again .

Room Tip: Room 301, nice and quiet, away from elevator too.

Thank you for the great comments, I'm glad you chose the Courtyard Salinas as your place of rest. We heard you and have now added additional coffee and cups in our suites. Our Bistro located in the lobby offers the full as you mentioned as well as Starbucks! So tip back a few in the evening and let Starbucks kick start your day the next morning.

If you want a stylish, spacious, comfortable hotel, with great service and nice amenities (and a low price) stay here. We couldn't get a Saturday night in Carmel, so we stayed at this hotel the night we arrived. Are we glad we did! 30 minutes or so to Monterey or Carmel, a great and economical spot for a first night arrival. Service was so friendly and helpful. The hotel is remodeled and is cheerful and modern. Nearby restaurants are mostly chains, serviceable but not special. Outstanding example of a hotel of its kind. Would definitely return

Stayed here due to proximity to Laguna Seca. The hotel was adequate. Efficient check-in. Rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable- had a swim in the pool - decent size. Breakfast was ok. A totally average hotel. One minus was the noise from the street and air conditioners - both noisier than expected. OK for one night.

I always stay at this hotel when traveling and reccomend it 100% to anyone looking for a great stay by yourself or with family. Great location, clean hotel, friendly staff, and indoor large pool! Restaurant and lounge area is very nice. Staff make it a pleasant experience, there is one young lady in particular who always, always, has a smile and taking care of everyone's needs her name is Clarissa Juarez. She has exceptional customer service skills and always finds ways to help. Thank you Marriott for always giving me a wonderful experience. I will be back!

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.
