I booked this hotel by mistake, thinking I was booking the Best Western Plus Beach Resort Monterey and getting an awesome deal. When I discovered my mistake I was a little disappointed until I arrived and saw that we were still right on the dunes, within walking distance of the beach, and I got 2 nights for less than 1...

Don't do many reviews but my wife and I wanted to do one for this hotel. Clean, safe, convenient location and about half the price of hotels in montery. Loved our stay. 10 minutes to monterrey and 40 minutes to santa cruz. Very good restraunt called kula ranch with excellent happy hour right next door. Beautiful beach walking distance or... More

The best thing about this hotel is the location. It is situated within a short walk to the dunes and beach. A great place for a walk or run. The hotel is very average and only a 3 star at best. My room was standard two queens and recently new carpet. It's a good place for a night, but not... More

we had four rooms at this hotel, in one of the rooms the mattress was very hard and uncomfortable, so the manager bought pads for that bed and make it really good for my sister who was recovering from surgery. In one of the other rooms the refrigerator was missing, and there again she furnished us one asap. I think... More

Over the last 15 years we have stayed at this B/W numerous times - Perfectly situation in the Monterey Bay area to take advantage of the many activities. Easy walk to the beach - many fine restaurants in the area.

This hotel is exactly what you expect from the chain. The breakfast was one of the best free breakfasts I have ever encountered. It is just down the street from the beach. They do have a hot tub even though it is not mentioned on their website. The housekeeping left a lot to be desired. They did not empty the... More

More reasonable than the hotels in Monterey. Definitely needs updating and having a microwave in the room would have been nice. Close proximity to beach via dunes which is nice. Breakfast was adequate but room was hot and crowded. There is a tiny playground and jacuzzi.

I liked this hotel a lot. It's not my favorite that I've stayed at, but I really liked it. I thought the staff was wonderful, when we checked in, we came in with a small SUV and a utility trailer, and the let us park the trailer in the lot in a spot next to our car. They explained where... More

A clean and quiet place to stay, friendly staff. Easy access to Highway 1, making it a short drive to all attractions. Close to beach, about a five minute walk. Go early to breakfast to beat the crowd, because the eating area fills up quickly.

Staff was great, appearance of lobby nice, and the complimentary breakfast is good. We did not hear anything during the night which was wonderful. The rooms are clean but need updating. As does the outside of the hotel. The cost is too high for the look of the rooms.
