We spent one night at the BW Beach Dunes Inn. The hotel is showing some age and so are the rooms. It's decent for the price and close to Monterey and the activities there. The room was just average and was worn but clean.

First room wasn't cleaned, second carpet was not vacuumed and on the lavatory a lot of black long hairs and the room smells bad and the noise from the Highway was terrible. The third room what we get was ok, but everything was very dusty. Forget the breakfast it was the worst what we had during our trip. The location... More

Overpriced motel, thin walls heard conversation from the next room, dirty - we had poor service in our room - one day only 1 bed was made, the bathroom floor was dirty, and the room was not vacuumed in the 5 days we stayed there! Dust covered the table tops all week. There was also a very nasty smell (petroleum... More

My niece and I stopped here on way to Monterey. I trust Best Western to be at least clean and with adequate rooms, as this one was. Reception was friendly and helpful, directing us to excellent nearby restaurant--within walking distance. We didn't have time to enjoy the park/beach but it is just across the road. Our room was first floor... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in August. It was ridiculously over priced. It is in a great location right by the sea. The staff were not particularly friendly. The room was clean but the bed was so uncomfortable. If you could get this hotel at a reasonable price then it would be ok. It is very average.

We stayed here just one night on the way back from Sequoia NP. The room was a bit musty but that was expected being so close to the sea. The staff were so helpful and were kind enough to post some things back for us for a fee. Close to the sand dunes and beach. Unfortunately got lost looking for... More

For a moderately priced -- and idealy situated hotel, you get what you pay for. But this hotel could do a few simple things to make guests more comfortable and wanting to return. First, the cleanliness is questionable-- our non-smoking room was musky with a smoky smell. Second, the bed spread--did not look very clean and do not invite comfort.... More

The location was convenient and nice. The hotel is very clean and staff is very friendly. Bed was too soft and needs a new mattress as it was softest where people sleep. Typical breakfast bar and plenty of coffee and juice. A snafu at check-in which was rectified but caused no small amount of inconvenience by a crazy chance. The... More

The bed was quite comfortable to sleep in at Best Western Beach Dunes Inn. Being so close to highway 1 however there is some periodic road noise at night; it is not a major factor for me, but might be for very light sleepers. The cost differential between staying in Monterey or Marina may be the swing factor for some;... More

Stayed here because Monterey and Carmel were booked solid with a car show. I was down in the area for a couple rounds of golf. The room I got was on the second floor and there was no elevator. Because of the architecture of the motel, that required 3 flights of stairs - yuck! The room was not clean and... More
