I had a short stay while in the area for a job opportunity. Overall was just kinda "eh". The location is the best part about it. Very close to marina beach, within walking distance and only a few other motels/ hotels nearby. The room itself was fine, basic but included everything you may need. Appeared clean at first, but upon... More

We booked into this hotel by accident thinking it was closer to Monterey. The hotel seemed to be doing some remodeling. The desk staff as ok. The housekeeping staff Iwe talked with was less impressive. Be aware that this hotel does not have an elevator and some the second floor rooms require you to climb three sets of stairs. After...

Great hotel, close to Monterey but without the inflated prices of staying in the town. 5 mins drive to get to everywhere we needed. Very helpful and friendly staff. Room was very large and bed comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and set's you up well for day. Would definitely stay again.

We had stayed there years ago and it needs attention. The room was musty, carpet in bad shape and soggy between the beds. The sink ran and i had to turn it off underneath to sleep. The beds were good and sheets clean as were the towels. No shampoo, had to go get it from the lobby,. The place fill... More

Very clean and comfortable! Nice setting within walking distance to the beach. Excellent value! If I wasn't 2000 miles away, I would definitely come back! Only problem was that I went down to breakfast and there were MANY people crowding in to get food. I left and came back, but they were out of a lot of items and didn't... More

The room seem dated and not very clean, dusty and some dirt under the beds. the customer service guy said we would be close to Monterrey. We were not it was way out of our way. The bed was uncomfortable. We had been staying at Best Western up and down the coast all week. this was the least favorable one.

Pleasant rooms, GREAT location, away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to enjoy it. Just a fabulous getaway. My only regret, we should have stayed 4 nights instead of 2. My kids really loved it there too. They ran all over that hotel.

Good inexpensive hotel in a great location. Close to Monterey and Carmel. Right next to Marina State Beach and close to Fort Ord Dunes State Park. Would stay there again. Comfortable bed, good A/C unit and very good breakfast. Not bad for a standard Best Western.
