Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Express & Suites Salinas

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Excellent!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
In my point of view, the facility was outstanding despite being under minor renovation. My room was very, very clean, I felt refreshed when I looked at it and the complimentary breakfast was awesome. I will definitely recommend it to everyone.

"DO NOT USE THIRD PARTY AGENTS."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
DO NOT use the third party agent whose number is prominently displayed on the Holiday Inn website. We were evacuated from a fire and had to find a room fast, while many others were fleeing our neighborhood. The phone number prominently listed on the Holiday Inn website goes to a foreign booking agency. The agents are pushy, hard to understand, mumble and race through vital reservation information to make their quota. I next needed to call the local Inn to check on the possibility of an early arrival time. The local clerk said they DID NOT have the room I thought I had booked and promised not to charge my card. I called the third party agents back to cancel with them and they suddenly could not understand English, could not locate the reservation I just made and had me repeat it over and over, the number they had just given me, the call dropped and disconnected. I finally gave up. I'm now embroiled in a credit card dispute with these jokers. Holiday Inn: you cannot display your third party agents and then assume zero culpability for their actions. This was not some rando pop up advertisement, it is on their website.

    "We greatly appreciate your help. We had made arrangements with a hotel and then found out that it was located in a bad part of town. The trip is in three weeks and we felt doomed. I found your site and we had bids from three hotels within 1 hour. On such short notice and a larger group .. We are thrilled !! Thanks !!" T.G. - Missouri City, MO
