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

My family and I stayed here because we couldn't find any space in Monterey itself. I expected better from Best Western, especially a property that boasted such proximity to the water. Unfortunately this is more of a motel, and I did not feel like the room was clean. There was a strong smell of bleach in the bathroom however the... More

great staff and very clean rooms. Large room was great for the four of us. Breakfast was good and a quick way to get our morning. We found out it was best to eat early. It got very crowded by 8 am. The hotel was a quick drive to Monterey. Easy parking.

Hotel was clean and comfortable. We loved the location close to the beach. Breakfast was nice although crowded. Location was great for visiting Monterey and Big Sur area. We enjoy staying away from the crowds
