Budget is the name of the game
I did not realize I booked a Motel instead of a Hotel until the day we were traveling, so we decided to take a chance. It was clean enough for the price. The fridge didn't feel super cold but it did the job, it was nice that it had one in the first place. I was pleasantly surprised that the AC worked so well. TV was also nice and had a bunch of channels. WiFi was meh. You can tell it was renovated recently but it feels like it was done by a budget contractor. So, overall, I think "budget" is the best way to describe this motel. Also, the gentleman who checked us in was super nice, my card kept getting declined and we weren't sure why. He was very patient while I called my card carrier and then tried again. I think their machine may be faultyish but my fiancee's card worked fine so all good.

Very good 8.0
Good enough for a family trip
The accomodation was as we expected and as we read in the reviews. The rooms were clean and nice, just perhaps a little bit stuffy because of old furniture - could be renovated. Our family just needed a place to stay for two nights. We were out all day long and just spent the nights in the motel. It worked well for us and the price was worht it. We were looking for a good hotel/motel price close to Monterey Bay and this motel in Salinas was the closest that we were able to find a week before our trip.
