location is a short distance from Monterey but it was quiet and very nice. The staff was very helpful. The room was very clean. I would recommend this hotel to other visitors to the Monterey area. The price was very reasonable.

It is literally a 5 minute walk to the ocean. There is a beach too. It kind of off and secluded from town wich is nice. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. There is no elevator so if stairs bother you ask for a room on the first floor. There is a sand area for kids to play.

My family and I have been here before and enjoyed our last visit. I was a little surprised by all the negative reviews on here. I had wondered if maybe the customer service had gone downhill during our last visit (I believe we were here just over a year ago?) The lady who checked us in was pleasant. Actually, check... More

Too many problems to list but i'll try. Went here w family for vacation, when we arrived our room was not cleaned so they switched us to another room, then the next room's door handle broke off a 12am and we had cranky babies that wanted to sleep - not pleasant. Front desk was not helpful, rooms were very dirty,... More

Most rooms overlook the beach dunes or a courtyard with flowers in planters. Very quiet location off the highway. Comfortable bed, large room. short 1 mile walk or drive to expansive beach at Marina State Beach. Large breakfast selection:eggs, sausage, waffles, yogurt, cereal, fruit., breakfast breads. There is even a small play area for children

The room was clean enough. The customer service was less than adequate. The grounds were pretty run down and trashy. The clientele frequenting the establishment left a lot to be desired - very loud, smoking, up at late hours....and just not my demographic. As a destination this hotel stunk. As a location close to Monterey for not that much money... More

We often stay at Best Western Hotels, where we always pay cash upon check-out. We were told by the two women that this was not possible. From the moment we walked into the lobby, we felt unwelcome. We had been told that all rooms had both refrigerators and microwaves, as specified on the website and office when we called. When... More

Found this on Priceline Express and we were somewhat dismayed that it was 11 miles from Monterey, where we spent most of our time. After reading other reviews about cleanliness, was concerned my wife might dislike it. The room was acceptable but exterior was dirty. A napkin on the ground outside our neighbor's door was there for our entire 2-day... More

I have stayed at this Hotel in the past, so when I knew I was going to Monterey for a few days, this hotel was my first choice and for the area, it is very reasonably priced. It's a typical top tier Best Western Property.
