A lot better than Bakersfield best western plus one. More like what expect from best western plus level hotel. Clean lobby, nice room, bigger room, a larger queen bed, clean carpet, bathroom and bed. BW should review their hotel if it does not qualify plus level, demote it. If we book a plus level, we have certain level expectation. Not...

Standard roadside hotel, nothing special. Horrible stench of bleach from the bathroom, even with the door closed, and even after taking a shower and running the fan. The manager was actually surly and rude when he contacted me to follow up after I asked the front desk to contact him. A second manager called me later, and she was much...

I often stay here when attending races at Laguna Seca. It is a 20 minute drive, however the price is often an excellent value compared to other hotels in the area. The rooms are comfortable, well furnished and clean. The staff has always been helpful & courteous. The breakfast food is very well prepared, and has reasonable variety. I have...

The hotel staff is very helpful and pleasant. The hotel itself appeared very clean. My room was clean, the bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was better than average. Definitely would stay again.

We were heading for graduations and fun with family for a month in our truck and camper. We left on Thurs and Fri our transmission dumped its fluid as we were parking in an RV park in Monterrey. We ended up in Salinas at the Ford dealership where we were told our transmission had to be replaced. When we checked...

This was one of many Best Westerns where we've stayed and it was just below ok. The desk staff don't seem well fitted to the hospitality industry. They just go through the motions, not particularly friendly or welcoming. No "thanks for staying with us" or "how was your visit?" A man behind the counter who appeared to be the manager...

Came here with my 5-year-old son for a one night stay. On the bright side, check-in went smoothly and the room was clean. However, this is not a great location for families. It was too windy to use the outdoor pool, but we probably wouldn't have stayed in the pool long anyway because of the car exhaust coming from the...

The Best Western PLUS was a surprise to have been found in Salinas. All the aspects of the property were excellent, and the staff was efficient. The breakfast was a little deficient in that not all items were available at the 6:30 am opening time. There was a minor plumbing problem with a slow tub drain, but overall the experience...

Stayed one night while traveling summer, 2015. The staff was friendly. Complimentary breakfast was the typical selection. Breakfast area was small. The refrigerator that contained yogurt was a bit obscured. It was on the floor underneath a countertop. I did not notice it until I saw someone squat down to open the door and remove a yogurt.

Thank Larosern
