I was very surprised at the beauty of the hotel when we arrived. I was even more surprised of the cleanliness and overall comfort of our room, but when I laid on the bed I was super happy and the pillows were the best, without being flattened out with overuse. I would recommend the Salinas Best Western to anyone.

The Best Western Salinas Monterey is a good value. Excellent location near a major freeway. Close to an In and Out and McDonald's. Clean rooms with comfortable beds. The employees are very nice. The breakfast is average. Great for the business traveler.

This is a very nice, updated hotel we stayed in for 4 days to attend the Laguna Seca Historic races and show. Wonderful access to and from raceway.....absolutely no traffic problems. Beds were very comfortable. Staff were very helpful. Easy access to old downtown restaurants. Great parking and next to In and Out.

Our room was spacious and clean. The bed and pillows were super comfy. The breakfast didn't offer much but was free. We would stay here again as it was priced well and parking very convenient. McDonalds was right next door.
