Newest first
6.0 Okay
Cons:torn curtain, shower stained, overall....the place is very "tired". Paid 229. for a 89. room
2.0 Bad
Cons:It was too pricey. The toilet didn't function properly - maintenance came to fix - still didn't work. Didn't move us to different room. The internet didn't work properly either. It has NO microwave.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:We've stayed at the Laurel in once or twice a year for a few years and thought it was a really good bargain. Will you just stay there again and it seems like even more of a bargain now as the rooms seem clear, there's no flatscreen TVs set of the old ones, and the food in the breakfast bar is much much better with the addition of sausage and eggs and a very nice woman who makes everyone feel welcome at breakfast
Cons:It was all good but was also nice to have rules that were far away from the freeway; some rooms are kind of close but actually they were soundproof Jennifer not to be too big of an issue. The heater was quite noisy but certainly heated up the room and then we just turn it off for the night. Really everything was pretty comfortable and it was possible to forget that this was a bargain motel because it felt just like a really great motel
3.4 Poor
Pros:The staff
Cons:The location, no lotion, recycled dated furniture,
8.0 Great
Pros:It is a nice clean place. The room was good and comfortable. The breakfast was a good start to the day, not a full breakfast but nice.
5.1 Passable
Pros:Decent value, clean accomodations. Came up to play golf and have reasonably a priced stay since I wasn't going to be in the room much. Laurel Inn fit the bill.
Cons:Rooms need to be updated. Old tube TVs! Mattresses, bedding are old.
6.8 Okay
Pros:The location was ideal. It was a sad time as the family was in town to attend a funeral.
Cons:The room needed a microwave and an iron and ironing board. I assumed incorrectly they were in all the rooms.
8.8 Great
Pros:Laurel Inn in Salinas is conveniently located just off Hwy 101, about 2 miles from downtown. Rooms are basic but clean, with decent TV, small work table, small fridge. Continental breakfast is fine, although some protein options would be nice. However, there is a Black Bear diner just across the parking lot, plus other restaurants and basic shopping options across the freeway (west) or over on Main Street (about a mile east). There is a small pool, although Salinas tends to be cool. Depending on room location, there can be traffic noise, but not too bad. Staff are friendly, and the price is right.
Cons:Wish the breakfast options were a little better, but there are pastries, fruits, cereal, yoghurt and typical drinks. More substantial options at the local diner or other restaurants. Can be noisy if on the street side. Nothing fancy, but a reasonable place to stay.
9.7 Excellent
Pros:It was so clean!! New mattress. Clean, soft sheets. Plenty of pillows. Bathroom area was large enough for woman with lots if make up and hair stuff. Hot water forever. Nice new tv. Great free breakfast with really good French toast. Just families and couples so there was no drama at all. Very very safe. For around $100. A night for a Kung bed I was very impressed and I tried most of the hotels around salinas- the safe ones at least- and this was by far the best!!
Cons:The manager was rude and snotty. All the other staff was very nice but she had a attitude that ruined a perfect environment. Too bad.
8.2 Great
Pros:It was a clean, no frills kind of place. I traveled in September and the rate was $113/night which was a bit high but of better quality than lower cost places. It is very close to freeway access without being close to the freeway noise. The mattress and pillows were clean and comfortable. The breakfast area was clean, and the selection decent. The staff were consistently very friendly and helpful.
Cons:The television was a bit outdated (30" CRT) and the picture was a little dark. I moved from a two queen bed room, which apparently wasn't used much and worth the rate, to a single queen room which was clearly used more and not so much worth the rate. The coffee in the breakfast area was terrible. Only on the last day, when I decided not to have the room maid service, did the front desk complain to me about this. Not sure why, as the room had been serviced the day before, and the maid was very friendly about it when I told her.
