We were looking for a room with close laundry facilities, and free wifi, parking, and breakfast. This fit the bill! Positives: Convenient location just off highway. Unfortunately we arrived late and left early so I can't speak to the beach. It was pleasantly quiet at night. The dining area at breakfast was limited, but free waffles, eggs, sausage, cereal, yogurt,... More

We've been here before, and knew pretty much what we were getting into. Close to the beach, yet also close to Hwy 1. You'll get a bit of road noise if you're close to that end of the property. Fortunately we were much closer to the lobby/breakfast area this time. Starting with the bad: Housekeeping. Not a problem before, this... More

The staff, service and breakfast selection were excellent. The only thing I would change is putting pocket doors for the bathrooms. If your sitting on the toilet you cannot close the door because you legs are in the way.

The location is a short walk to a beach park, a few miles from Carmel and Laguna Seca raceway. The beds were very comfortable and the staff was very courteous and helpful. Will stay here again if I am in the area.

My husband was playing in a golf tournament in Monterey so we decided to grab a budget room along the coast. A friend had suggested a Best Western just North of Monterey on the water. He wasn't sure of the name and after a quick search we thought perhaps it was this place. Upon checking in we discovered that the... More

As others have stated, the Best Western adopts a generally standard organisation and layout. That said, my family and I had a fantastic stay at the hotel. The front desk team were professional and efficient, which is just what you need when staying overnight. The location of the hotel is close to the dunes and the beach, along a road... More

Just as the title says... Found half full beer can behind television set, shower had mold in it, desk chair was filthy, carpet was sticky in places, T.V. remote buttons didn't work. Would never stay here again.

I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!!! This hotel - The Best Western Beach Dunes Inn was Old, Dilapidated, Dirty, in need of major repairs and did not offer the amenities or customer services as represented by Expedia.com or by the Best Western Hotel Chain itself. First of all, the location of the Hotel is not just “Steps Away from the Beach”... More

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
