Sacramento, California
Reviewed 16 February 2015

We stayed here on our way to the Hearst Castle. Very convenient location right off the freeway. This hotel had comfortable beds, and was sparkly clean. I really enjoyed our stay there. We paid about 70$ per night, which is a great price for this place. Right next to the hotel there is a Black Bear restaurant.

My Family has stayed here at least one hundred times over the last twenty years, and this is probably the best freeway-side hotel in Salinas. They are currently working on the rooms to Update them.

This is a nice place to stop heading to San Francisco. The rooms are clean, simple and large and this is a motel characteristic of USA. It is a good value for money. There is a restaurant near the motel, and the breakfast is nice for a motel of this category.

Laurel Inn Motel is rated better on TripAdvisor than a lot of the motel chains one expects to be rated higher than an independent motel. The price is really great. The room was clean, the bed was firm, which I like, not quite so well liked by my husband, wifi was strong in our room and free, kthe breakfast was...

Nice room, reasonable prices, and a good escape from Monterey when hotels there jack up the prices because of a special event. Only one complaint: we could hear everything in the adjacent room. And when people walked past our room outside. People weren't yelling or talking loudly, but the acoustics seemed to amplify everything ... including when I woke up...

Thank you for making the Laurel Inn your choice during your recent visit to Monterey County. I apologize for the noise you found disruptive. Rooms with connecting doors do tend to magnify noise and again I apologize for any discomfort you experienced. Please feel free to call the front office anytime you have a concern.

The price is a good value - however, we experienced major problems with the reservations.com which we did not realize we used. I changed my reservation prior to the deadline to incur a fee and had to send 4 emails and make 5 phone calls to be sure it was done correctly since I was emailed the incorrect dates over...

We stayed here for a week in early October for the SCCA Runoffs at Laguna Seca. It was only about 15-20 minutes to the track. The rooms were quite, large and comfortable.

Quiet. The bed was comfortable. Poor "continental" breakfast. The front desk has 10% discount cards for a pretty good cafe next door. Nice staff. Reasonably priced for the area, which is why we stayed there.

Los Angeles, California
Reviewed 10 October 2014

For a low cost option in the Monterey area, this motel is fine. Very clean room, the beds were decent, and they offer a breakfast. The breakfast is pretty basic - cereals, muffins, toast, bananas - but no eggs. The pool looked nice, although small, and there were refrigerators and coffee makers in the room. A decent place to overnight.
