The room was standard but comfortable. The staff was very nice and the food was excellent. They actually cook up fresh scrambled eggs and sausages which was a nice bonus to the continental breakfast that is included in your stay! And best of all the beach is in walking distance and so beautiful!!!

Best compliment is we will stay here again! Only compliant for breakfast was the waffle mix seemed too thick. The room has thin walls (which nothing can be done about that) too firm mattress for myself but hubby said fine for him. Could not park close, as our room was located in the courtyard. None of this was a big... More

You can't find a better deal near Monterey. While this hotel is not luxury, it is perfectly adequate and it's location in the dunes with several trails to the beach is hard to find anywhere else in Monterey Bay for this price.

Free WiFI included but didn't really have to sign on so had some concerns regarding security. The computer and printer in at the... More

I have passed this location over many times. I'm glad I booked there this time. It was a perfect walk to the beach, rooms were clean, and very roomy. Exterior was nicely landscaped as well. I will be staying here again!

This has to be one of my favorite holiday get aways. Located right across the street from the beach you cant beat the location. Good accommodations and adequate breakfast. You really would have to try hard to find a better place.

We love this place with lovely hot tub and walking path through giant dunes to a beautiful Pacific beach. Friendly staff. Our room facing inside courtyard was quiet and comfortable. Convenient to Monterey, Carmel, Big Sur without the high prices.

We were checked-in with a smile but it sucked that they only had two queen beds when i booked a single king bed, but... More

The Best Western Beach Dunes Inn is a small in located in Marina, CA, about 10 minutes north of downtown Monterey. The front counter staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They provided us with some excellent recommendations for local dining options. The free buffet style breakfast in the morning was surprisingly good. It included waffles, cereal, toast, English muffins, fruit,... More
