We found this Hotel to be clean, beds comfortable. You are next to the freeway and there is a fair amount of noise. We were unable to watch TV as the sound was pre-adjusted too low. The staff advised us that it was our responsibility to clean the hot tub. Wifi good. Breakfast typical. I think we will pay more... More

My wife and me know the Beach Dunes. Marina as the fantastic place for the family vacation in vicinity of Monterey. You have a beach of 10 miles long and 50 meters wide with practically no people in. You have the permanent wind from the ocean to your face, and the air is saturated with oxygen. You can walk in... More

This hotel is separated from the Pacific only by a road and a large sand dune, an easy walk or a short drive. A great place for a walk on the beach, the possibility of seeing sea birds and mammals, and visiting nearby attractions such as historic Monterrey, the San Juan Bautista Mission, and the marine mammals at Moss Landing.

My daughter and I were in the area visiting the college she will be attending. The staff was very helpful with resturants and even advised us which apartments to visit for her housing. I will highly recommend to all our friends and family to stay at the Best Western Dunes Inn when they are in the area visiting my daughter!

Wanted ground floor. Got rm 101 at the back of property. It was ground level for that part of property but still had to go up several steps to get to room. Was corner room & you could get right to the lobby around the corner. However it involved a big climb down the stairs. If you want a ground... More

Hotel needs remodeling big time. Stairs are broken, it is a safety hazard. Internet did not work for 1 out of 2 days of my stay. Breakfast area is too small for the size of the hotel leading to crowding. Just one ice machine on the first floor for the entire hotel. Room lacks basic amenities like microwave and refrigerator.

Cheaper than staying another night in Santa Cruz or Monterey and the nearby dunes are awesome. Was a little concerned as we arrived at 5 PM and requested a room far away from freeway; even though the parking lot was empty we were assigned a room 2 away from freeway. It turned out to be okay, but I felt we... More

The Beach Dunes is in walking distance to the beach, and close to Dennys and a resort restaurant. Fairly quiet, although there is freeway noise. Enough space in rooms for a couple bikes. Pleasant beach/garden setting, decent breakfast, however the 7:00 bkfst open is a little late for the event setup crew.

Love the location, walking distance from Marina State Beach. Upon checking in and checking out desk clerk was very pleasant. We stayed on a Easter weekend, so it was very busy. To my surprise all breakfast items were kept up with and stocked. It was filling for my family. The room was very nice and clean. I did notice that... More

Walking distance to Marina State Beach. Very close to shopping and a few restaurants. Hot tub but no pool. In room internet was in and out. But, it was a good value for a holiday week night and easy to navigate to Monterey and all the attractions there. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was fine and what you'd expect these days.
