Campground Reviews

Nov 21, 2012
Nice, well-kept rv park. Extremely friendly service. Not a lot of atmosphere as rv sites are paved, some nice landscaping, narrow sites. Very centrally located for visiting the Monterey Bay area.

The room we were given didn't match the description we selected. The water pressure in the shower was terrible. The pool is not safely blocked for small children. The playground is dangerous. We were not well informed about how we could cook.We were charged for propane, which was also not explained well on the website. We will not be going back.

The host was very friendly and helpful. We liked the cabins very much and thought we were getting more for our money. We will definitely come back here again!

What a great location! Friendly and helpful staff. Clean and quiet grounds.

Everything was splendid. But I believe it's time you upgraded your restrooms and showers - they were kind of skanky. Other than that, a pleasant experience!

Staff very friendly and helpful. Everything clean and nice. Liked the fact that they spread out the occupied sites to make it quieter and more private. Only downside was the traffic sounds but that got better after dark.

Very friendly, very clean, good price for the area.

The staff was great, the location is good but the section where we stayed was not more than a parking lot with hookups and they were very close together with just a fence panel between the sites. Ok for a night or two stay but wouldn't want to stay any longer.

The website is very deceiving. We thought we were getting a nice cabin and we when we got there we were disappointed. This is the second time this has happened to us at this KOA. I purposely tried to go to a different KOA on this last trip due to the disappointment from last stay. The web site made it look totally different so I made the mistake of staying there again. We will avoid this KOA.

I have a long history of staying at this facility. I find it convieniant as I work in the feild on contract work. My only objection is the low flow shower head in my cabin, it was pathetic, after a hard day of work I need a decent shower. I understand the spirit of saving water, but it may be at the cost of loosing a long time customer.

Very noisy, little character, felt like sleeping in a car park. Not all that convenient to Monterey. Manager was helpful, location average

It was a great location for where I needed to be, but the property itself leaves something to be desired. I lucked out and got a firepit spot, but others just had pavement and a tree or fence. The concrete pad was level however, that is a plus

I had a very nice time. My room was excellent.

we missed the pool, but guess it was out of season for that. Good room quiet/comfortable/ clean. wanted ice tray for refrig.

Good, well-run site, with good facilities and friendly and very helpful manager.

The location was very convenient to Hwy 101. The site was roomy and had good access. The hard turn at the entrance was the only negative.

Cabin was spotless, Wi-Fi worked great & staff were wonderful. A perfect stay!

We enjoy your nice,clean,quiet & friendly RV Park!

Extremely noisy and right on top of each other with no space between showers are poorly located
Sep 25, 2012
Friendly staff, spacious spaces, no dirt!

Site was much too close to neighbors. I reserved one to handle slides on both sides but my slide was less than a foot away from the next site. Also when I pulled in the picnic table was in the middle of the site and impossible to move easily.

Plus: Friendly staff, clean "Kabin". But 3 BIG minuses: Pool NOT available, and NO place for a campfire. Since my daughters were looking forward to doing a lot of swimming, they were very disappointed. Noisy HY 101 nearby. And we brought a lot of firewood for campfire, but that was a waste of time; no campfire ring on site. This place is really just a converted mobile home park with a KOA sign.

Great place to stay! Thanks for your help!
Sep 10, 2012
Excellent location! Close to freeway, but the RV park is quiet. Great experience!
Sep 09, 2012
Felt like a glorified parking lot (was expecting more space and grassy area)... but the staff was nice and friendly.
Sep 06, 2012
Nice KOA, washrooms are old and could use an up grade, however, they are very clean. Friendly staff!

My family and I had a great time and the staff was very polite. Next time we will bring more family members, which they will rent the cottages. Thanks for a wonderful time

This was one step above a Wal-Mart parking lot. It was a parking lot with hook-ups. It was noisy- close to traffic- and cramped. It was the worst KOA we have ever stayed at. I give it one star because it did have hook-ups.

With Monterey being a beautiful tourists center, I was COMPLETELY disappointed with our stay at the Salinas KOA. We had stayed at KOA's in the past (Montana, Wyoming, Arizona) and were pleased with the cabin conditions as well as the friendly staff. Our stay in Salinas was NOT. Shower door would not close and electrical outlet had no cover with wire's exposed! Just seemed nasty inside.

Went alot of places!
Sep 04, 2012
good location, friendly employees. Sites are small.
Sep 04, 2012
The manager quoted me one rate after I asked if there was availabity on 9/1 and when I called back it was a different rate- and when I called him on it, he tried to blame me for his misquote he asked me, rather rudely "So what do you want to do?" The carpet had black spots on it. Not sure if it was mildew or stains. The towels were old and worn out. I may stay at another KOA, but not this one.
Sep 04, 2012
We stayed here as a base from which to explore the Monterey Bay area. The campground is basically a parking lot, but it was clean, had a nice pool and the manager was very friendly and accomodating.
Sep 04, 2012
Needs some updating in the bathrooms, sites were very close together, very nice staff
