I have never stayed at this type of facility before and did so only to be near friends with an RV. I felt that the facility was WAY overpriced for what you got. Rooms were very dated , poor quality bedding, you had to take out your own trash and could not even cook inside Why have stoves in units? Stayed at nice Holiday Inn Express in Solvang included breakfast,pool for $69.

We stayed in these units a few times now they were nice when the rates were $65.00 a night and we seen some pictues on the web that showed they had been remodaled and they looked nicer so was willing to spend the higher rate this time. Unfortunately unit we stayed in looked the same as the one we did many years ago.

Raquel and Larry the managers are the best managers ever! They are very dedicated and committed to making you comfortable and go out of their way to make sure that happens!

great stay -- didn't realize this location was so close to the highway as I am used to a more out of the way KOA experience, The staff was helpful and friendly, the kabin was very clean and well appointed.

We had a wonderful time. The staff were very friendly and competent. Our cottage was clean and as advertised. Whenever we needed something, you were very accommodating. Thank you for a great visit.

Our cozy cottage was very clean and comfortable. It was a truly relaxed weekend. The only drawback was freeway noise but we just turned our music on and even that was okay.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

Great as always.....much nicer looking area now.

Knowing that my family was comfortable took alot of stress of my shoulders. The best rest I've had in years.

The neighbors were yelling at each other at 2AM. The heater didn't work either and it was very cold.

KOA is always a known quantity... not fancy, but clean, safe, and inexpensive. Perfect for our family!
