"Salinas is a beach city and after 2 days you have done it all and seen it all. Now the hotel is about 3 blocks away from the main strip. Walking those 3 blocks in the day time is fine, but not night with no street lights and some abandon lots I would not do it. If you could get this hotel for less ..."…"
