We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite. Very nice room because it is like an apartment. I did find the sofa bed in the living room a little uncomfortable to sit on. But otherwise the room was comfortable. The blow dryer didn't work properly however as it would shut off after just a minute or so and then not restart...

After selling our local home prior to relocating, we stayed here on and off for several weeks during the transition. The property is quiet and well managed. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable, and it was nice having a kitchen. The location is ideal if you are looking for a more moderately priced...

It's less than a 30-minute drive to Monterey, and yet this is a family-friendly hotel that is very close to shopping and restaurants. People are very friendly, and hotel is clean and neat. Would highly recommend.

Room was very clean, comfortable and well maintained. Staff was friendly and kitchenette was an added plus with microwave, fridge, coffee maker, dishwasher etc. Shower was hot and bed was soft. Same rate as other Marriott right across the parking lot but this one has free breakfast and the kitchen.

I spent two nights in this Hotel to know the region of Carmel .Its a good option cause you ride some miles in the highway and reach one of the most agreables cities I´ve ever seen that is Carmel!Hotels and Inns are very expensive in Carmel so I think looks smart to stay in Salinas and visit Monterey and Carmel...

OK when it says "residence" I think trashed by families or homeless...sorry - I feel bad just saying that. But this place was great. It was clean, well appointed, cheerful, bed was comfortable and everything worked. There was a sign on the refrigerator "if you need stocking up leave a grocery list with the front desk and we will do...

Hotel people were great, but the hotel needs a lot of TLC. Very tired looking rooms, stained carpets in room and hallways. Shower liner and curtain icky. Stained bedspread. Hotel is pet friendly which is great for pet owners, but not so great for people that are allergic. We had a four legged guest in the room next to us,...

Fairly new and well kept Residence Inn. Overall very good, however the check inn staff left a poor initial impression were poor. We checked in just as one shift was finishing ( 3pm) and it was evident that the lady wanted to leave. Room was very nice. Location quite but quite a few places to eat near by.

I will give 0 for customer service. On Aug 5, I was booked for one night. We drove all day long from LA and about 3 miles away from the hotel ( after about 10 hrs or so of driving) I got an email from them that there is a problem with the booking and asked me to call. I...

Was here for business and had meetings closer to Carmel. The staff was always very nice and honestly is what made the review excellent. The breakfast is pretty good, doable for 3 days or less. They also seem to have happy hour snacks which one night they had tacos/ nachos and the chicken was delicious. The rooms were nice and...
