My wife and I stayed there and we will be going back once again to Salinas, and will again stay here. It was just a nice place and in a quieter part of the town. It is a three dollar cab ride to the center of the Malecon which was perfect for us as when we are ready to sleep..., we want to sleep and NOT listen to street sounds and music until four AM. It is very updated and remodeled, very clean, a beautiful pool and deck area. Our room had a Jacuzzi for TWO and it was very nice. Again, we will stay there once again.
