We have stayed here twice. Friendly staff, not a three star as it is rated but nice rooms. This time our room could have been cleaner. They didn't do a good job around the sink area and the wallpaper in the restroom was coming off. Breakfast is not the greatest, eggs and sausage, waffles and so on. We booked through... More

I'm a rewards member with Best Western and mustn't have reserved rooms with them in quite a very long time that I forgot what their idea of "last checkout" was. I misunderstood and thought that I had until 11:00am to check out the following day. To my surprise, when I woke up and steppe out of my room, I was... More

We stayed here on our return trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles. The hotel is easy to find, just off the freeway and the staff were very helpful. The beach is a short walk from the hotel and well worth it to see the sunset. Restaurants are a 5 minute drive into the town centre.

This hotel was situated away from most facilities. But we did find, nearby, a Dennys and Walmart for our shopping and dining conveniences. Was close to Hwy 1 for getting to Monterey and Carmel, where our family activities took place.

Location is great right next to the beach and the slide for kids is a really nice touch the little town is cute. The room sheets had a smell to them the two towels i had grabbed had blood spots and were a little rough. Im sure if i told them they would have done something about it.

This was a last minute trip and we had never been to Marina, CA. We found the price of the hotel was good. Breakfast was decent and the short walk to the beach was a plus. Nice place to relax and get away from the fast pace of our everyday grind. I would stay here again.

Had everything you needed. Best price for a Best Western in the Monterey area. Large accessible room, low beds (cool!), decent breakfast. Great location, walking access to the beach. WalMart and Denny's nearby. Short drive to Fisherman's Wharf and Monterey Bay Aquarium.
