Where to stay in Salinas

Most of the established, exclusive resorts, yacht clubs, and beachfront hotels can be found at the eastern end of the developed coastline. Mid-range hotels occupy the western section, tussling for space on the waterfront. In between the two, you'll find the more budget-friendly accommodations, with comfortable hotels and guesthouses on the side streets of a mainly residential neighborhood.
