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.

Near Marina Beach - short walk (about 300 yards) to the Beach. Room was clean, bed comfortable. A typical Best Western setup. Good breakfast with fruit, waffle maker, cereal, eggs, sausage, etc. About fifteen minutes to downtown Monterey. Not far from a newer Walmart for the last minute items.

This is a dirty poor run down hotel. But there is a Quality Inn next door and Worldmark across the street if your looking for better quality. The beach is just a walk down the block so if this is what you want go somewhere else..do not stay here because you will be disappointed.

We were visiting Monterey and the Big Sur area and this was the best value for the money in the area. The staff was friendly, the beds were comfortable, and the breakfast got us off to a great start each day. This location is very near Marina State Beach where we watched the whales just off shore and walked on... More

Stayed there for one night. The room was clean and the breakfast was average. It is located about 15 minutes from Monterey, near the beach in Marina, close to the highway... I would stay there again for sure.

We stayed there for one night. He location is great, the beach is a short walk away or you could drive, there's parking at the beach. Staff is friendly and professional. Parking is free, as is the Wifi. Our room was large, clean, comfortable and everything worked. Good shower and good bed. Some highway noise during the night, it didn't... More

I needed to stay in Monterey but the Best Western there was quite pricey and also required a two-night stay, minimum ! ! ! The Beach Dunes Inn was close to where I needed to go: El Estero park, Monterey, for the ALS' Walk to Defeat ALS and the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on Sun., Oct. 5.

This is by far the worst BW I have ever stayed in. First of all, the room smelled awful, kind of a combination of dirty, moldy, sweaty socks. When I told the desk clerk all she did was shrug her shoulders and say that they had no other rooms available. The manager wasn't available. I asked if the room could... More

Insensitive staff upon check in, poor office and maid service. We encountered spider webs in the doorways, bugs falling from ceiling in room while sleeping. Plumbing problems with toilet and after three days the shower was slow to drain. Hard beds like sleeping on floor.

I've stayed here twice and since my first visit there has been some updating. Very nice and very comfortable. I love the area and it is "remote' yet convenient to all of Monterey. I'd stay again, for sure! The rooms are pretty spacious. I am not a fan of the kid of breakfast they serve: eggs of unknown origin, sugary... More
