My stay at Salinas/Monterey KOA is always relaxing and enjoyable. Grounds and cabins are always extremly clean and neat.

Very convenient location for Monterey visit. We enjoyed the surprise warm cookies delivered by management. The park was clean, utilities were well located and functioned well.

Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. They provided us with a lot of information about the area. They also made excellent suggestions for places to eat!

It was nice, the weather was nice. Convenient to Monterey and Gilroy stores.

Nice to stop half way on our trip, but the noise from the highway was loud.

Convenient location, friendly staff. Just felt a little scared. Not sure how safe that area is. Could there be some security measures, like gated entry or security guard? Otherwise, it was nice.

It was OK except for the Wi-Fi which was non-existent 2 of our 5 day stay. It's hard to get on. The cleaning lady was cleaning at hours other than posted.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We apologize for the wi-fi, our provider had equipment issues. Our housekeeper did do her cleaning earlier than normal so she could take her sick child to the doctor. We're sorry if this was an inconvenience for you.

The Staff is great, friendly - this is the second time that we've stayed that the heat went out and it's very cold! The heat was out Tues. on Wed. out Thurs. so we left on Fri. one day early.We stay there every time we come to visit - the people are great - the maintenance of the facility is not.

Not very clean. Freeway noise when sleeping. Shower head was to tall and not adjustable. Coffee pot didn't work. We were asked to clean up before we left.

I love the cabins they have every thing you might need. also cozy.

Needs upgrades. All fixtures and furniture is old. When you walk in to the unit you feel like your living in the early 80's.

Pulled in at 8 pm on a Saturday night before Christmas. Was shocked to see a friendly face there to greet us. It is a perfect spot for those traveling up the 101.
Dec 21, 2013
Great staff to deal with. Sites are a tad short for big rigs but clean, paved & level.
Dec 15, 2013
Convenient , clean, safe. Stayed one night just passing through along Hwy 101
Dec 12, 2013
Très accueillants Mais internet est très important pour nous et nous avons été deux jours sans pouvoir se connecter sur 7. Les heures d'ouverture du bureau sont courtes en basse saison 9h à 17h.
Dec 02, 2013
We found this KOA very austere and stern about the rules and we did not feel particularly welcome for a family. The sites were like a parking lot and the bathrooms needed updating. We ended up deciding to stay in a hotel.
Dec 02, 2013
People were wonderful! The location is noisy (too close to main highway) and hard to get in and out of with the rig.
Dec 01, 2013
Our hosts were very accomedating even having a Thanksgiving dinner for the tenants. The pet area was interesting but no room to really run our 2 year old Boston Terrier. We would go back though.

The Prunedale/Salinas KOA was great fun! The staff there couldn't be nicer, they were very friendly and helpful. We had a great time and will be back.
Nov 27, 2013
Excellent employees at this park. The only negative is the tight turns required to maneuver into position.
Nov 26, 2013
Nice spot, clean and neat, great service from "Larry". Will be back next time we are in Monterey.

It was very nice and clean. The spots were spacious.
Nov 20, 2013
Too close to the freeway, made for too much noise.
Nov 19, 2013
The spaces (pads) are a bit close to each other. Except for that; it's a great place --- very cute, quaint and friendly. We'll be back!
Nov 14, 2013
Staff was very helpful and friendly. Campground was very clean and well maintained.
Nov 11, 2013
Very enjoyable, great staff. would like to recommend one change to parking large RV's pulling. Example: after unhooking, turn right at 1st road, back down past designated spot then drive into it. This would take away from having to make an overly tight left turn.

The staff at the Salinas KOA deserves to be awarded the KOA staff of the Year! This campground is conveniently located to Monterey and Carmel, always very clean and reasonably priced. We would stay here again.

Your kind comments are greatly appreciated. It was our pleasure to be your host. Getting to meet people like you makes our job worth while. Safe travels.

The entrance into this KOA is very narrow and it was virtually impossible to make a left turn into the entrance with my 40 foot coach & tow car; I had the road blocked for several minitues as I manuvered to finally sqeeze in without straching the side of the coach. Conclusing; this campground is not friendly to large motorhomes.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you had problems entering our park. We know our left turn is difficult for larger RV's, which is why we have on our web site, "Big Rigs call for directions". We thank you for staying with us and wish you safe travels.

Great place to headquarter. Beautiful campground friendly staff. It was fun to participate in the Saturday Halloween activity. Loved it.
Oct 26, 2013
Nice staff. Well cared for campground. Good location
Oct 25, 2013
Good location for the things we wanted to do in the area. Very friendly and helpful staff. Only minor complaint is tight spots with rigs with slide outs and a tow car.
Oct 24, 2013
I had a great time at this campground. It was extremely clean and everyone makes you feel very welcome. I will definately stay there again.
Oct 20, 2013
Friendly and efficient reception, easy to navigate around the campsite and hassle free stay all in all!
Oct 20, 2013
The pool was closed but they offered to open it for me. We were greeted warmly and taken to our site. Great customer service. We travel alot and will continue to stay here
Oct 18, 2013
We stayed here to break our trip back home from Oregon. Park is clean and neat and staff friendly. Would stay here again
Oct 12, 2013
Super friendly (but not overbearing)! Nice campground.
Oct 11, 2013
Stayed in a cabin, very comfy, clean. Staff was VERY friendly. Wish it had a stove, but microwave, mini fridge, and sink worked well. Nice bathroom, shower was wonderful. Tap water tasted very good! Hot water worked well. Right next to gas station, easy access to highway 101 and 156, super close to grocery store and places to eat. Just a great location to see the area! Will stay here again.

Clean overnight campground. Office staff were great and welcoming. Nice touch one of the koa workers guides you into your campsite. Helpful when your tired from driving.
Oct 07, 2013
Staff very friendly and helpful. Hook-ups easy and good. Pad very nice. Spaces pretty cramped together. While pet friendly, the "pet area" was precarious and we would not take dogs there in the dark. Access to the park from interstate was difficult for newbies. But that is more fault of California roads in that area.
Oct 06, 2013
Showers hard to get to as you must go up or down stairs.
Oct 05, 2013
Trop proche du freeway. Place de jeux pour enfants dangeureuse

I thought it was a real nice touch when the Koa host came by are cabin in the early evening giving out warm just baked chocolate chip cookies :)
