Thin walls made for lots of outside noise. Old furniture, dirty linen and refrigerator.

Too much traffic noise could be heard in the room I stayed. The room was very clean and the bed was average if you prefer a firm mattress .

Pros: clean, comfortable room size
Cons: Noisy, limited parking
I would stay here again but I would request a room away from street.

Clean Place

My stay was nice. I was there for work, but the hotel was clean and no wait to get my room. Very pleasant stay.

still the best buy in the area

So we came back again (4th or 5th time) and while they're still a little rundown, this is THE cleanest, nicest place to stay in Salinas, particularly for the buck. I'd love to see them upgrade the room. Still...HBO, fast wifi, very spacious and clean rooms, toiletries actually given every day, this is a terrific place and no doubt, we'll be back again when it's time for a visit home.

Great beds but....................

We've stayed at QI twice before, so we kind of knew what to expect, but we were still surprised to see how run down the rooms are getting. Examples: our room door had to be slammed shut, didn't close and lock behind us, wallpaper was peeling, WiFi was very slow if running, and what we REALLY didn't like was that we couldn't get a printed or written receipt for the cost of the room because we added additional time to our orig. reservation. We would stay here again but only if we had to. \n\nSalinas isn't exactly a mecca for good hotels, so this place is still on our list of places to stay, but it's not at the top anymore although you should know it has the BEST BEDS I'VE EVER SLEPT IN, and that's no lie. It's clean and it's relatively safe, so all told, it's still a bargain. AND you have Margies across the street for the best breakfasts in town.
