Stay Away

This is not a Marriott quality hotel. It should be some sort of truck-side-motel. The elevators and hallways stayed dirty, full of crumbs or food throughout the following day. The room was disgusting. The sheets and pillowcases were stained, the shower leaked, the light fixture was broken, the TV display did not identify the show you were watching -it said something else-possibly a different channel, the blowdryer had hair in it and was filthy, the toilet was cracked and pieced together with caulk haphazardly, the picture in the bathroom had boogers all around the edges of it and the towels were scratchy and stained as well. We brought it to the managers attention when we left on Monday morning, June 12th 2017 11am and she seemed to want us to describe exactly what was wrong rather than helping us solve our horrible experience. They took $20 off my card the night before and have yet to reimburse me. I argued yesterday with someone on the phone explaining slowly over-and-over again it is not pending, it's an actual charge. Please for your own sake do not go here, pay decent money to be swindled out of an additional $20 and treated with disrespect and suspicion. Avoid like the plague.

Thank you for taking the time to complete a satisfaction review in regards to your recent stay at the Courtyard Salinas Monterey. As we pride ourselves on delivering a memorable hotel experience during your travels, we have unfortunately fallen drastically short of our goal during your recent stay. I can't imagine your frustration with the issues you enclosed with your room, as well as what was suppose to be a $20 rebate, actually being an additional charge. I will personally be taking care of this myself to ensure it is done correctly. We have shared your feedback with the appropriate hotel team to ensure that this was an isolated issue that is corrected moving forward. Upholding our commitment to provide a memorable experience with exceptional service, we hope to have an opportunity to better your experience with us whenever your travels bring you back to Salinas. Sincerely, AMBER MONTARBO Assistant General Manager

Great place to stay after a day at the races.

Pros: The quiet room and the comfy beds.
Cons: If you don't mind paying for coffee and a muffin or a fully prepared breakfast, this place should meet all your needs.
Location: This place is located close to downtown Salinas which is charming. My only reason for coming up here is Laguna Seca race track.
Needed a good rest and got it. I usually stay at less expensive hotels, so this place was a treat for my son and I. It was actually quiet in our room. All night.

Undesirable at any price.

For about * per night (including tax) you can get a room about the size of a large walk in closet. The walls were so thin that I could hear every word spoken by the people next door talking at normal speaking volume along with a great deal of parking lot noice. When I called the desk to complain I was lied to and told that there were no other rooms available, all sold out. Found out later that there other rooms avaialble but not ""made up"". With little sleep, my job interview the next day was not good. I am a frequent business traveler and stay in hotels every week. You can certainly get a better room in Salinas at a much cheaper price.
