We experienced a problem while we were here. When we brought the issue to the attention of the manager the next morning she promptly said that she would tell Priceline to give us a credit back for our night's stay. She was very apologetic and handled our complaint very professionally. The hotel is nice looking. There is a nice grassy... More

A short walk to a great beach with hang gliders to watch and it was dog friendly. The room was clean and the staff couldn't be nicer. The breakfast was expanded with more choices than just carbs. There was a nice restaurant across the street, so there was no reason to leave.

We had to close the bathroom door because of the horrible urine smell. The hotel was dirty and would have changed hotels if I could. I have never written a review on a hotel, but I was sold on this hotel. How can you go wrong with $175. a night right? Should at least be clean, I will never stay... More

This Best Western property offers a good price for the location. The staff is nice and the rooms are clean. Great breakfast. We like taking a bottle of wine down to the nearby beach.We brought our bikes hopped on the bike path and rode to Monterey--8 miles away. Overall, very good value. We will stay here again!

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
