Overall an enjoyable stay at a decent price. The bed wasn't that comfortable and be sure to get to breakfast early, otherwise you'll have to go somewhere else. Once the food is gone they don't replenish.

This hotel is in a great location and the staff is fabulous. You can walk to the beach in a matter of minutes. Close to Monterey and Santa Cruz, we did both on our trip. Would definitely recommend. It's a great "beachy" hotel, no noise from the highway and I can't say that about lots of places I've stayed. Lots... More

The property has a great location for both the beach and proximity to Monterey (10+ minutes). While the rooms are simple, the surroundings are great and the service just happens to be top-notch. Ernie (ask for him) is quite the host and knows the area more than enough to make recommendations as well as take care of things on your... More

Hi fellow travelers, I have enjoyed the room at this hotel a lot! I had a King Bed in the room, with a nice sturdy chair to sit & watch TV. The bathroom was wonderful with spacious almost oval tub & good runny warm shower. It was a simple room, but it felt very spacious, clean and comfortable! Beautiful counter... More

We loved that the hotel had beach access right around the corner. We saw dolphins while relaxing on the beach. DEFINITELY will be returning to the hotel soon! Our children were able to enjoy the room as well and they had a blast on the beach!

We asked for a handicapped room, it was located at the bottom of the hill, my mother could not go to the breakfast room, because she could not walk up the hill or the stairs. She almost slipped in the shower. When I tried to explain this to the long haired female manager, she was just plane rude.

Location is nice, across the dunes and close to the expressway but even though the rooms are clean, the walls are very thin....we could hear the people above us walking....and every single door slamming. The breakfast was very good even though there is not enough tables for everyone. First night, they forgot to clean our room....in summary, for the price,... More

As we paid a hefty price...being this close to the highway...was not too good. Breakfast was a free-for-all with the desk clerk scrambling. Room was nice...bathroom just ok. Seemed overall run down and not on par with other Best Westerns I have stayed at. Someone had stuffed a phone book in the drink machine and someone else was parked with... More

Best Western Dunes: well what can I say? I accepted an offer from Hotwire for a hotel in Marina, and the amenities stated “free wifi, free parking, free breakfast”. If it weren’t for the stated amenities I would have not accepted this offer. Check in didn't go very well. I was welcomed by Erin who was very sweet and helpful.... More

I stayed in this hotel a few years ago with a bunch of friends for a wedding and remembered how great the price was for the location. I booked the room online and paid in advance. It's just across the street from a state beach with dunes and a great spot for just about any beach activity including surfing. Its... More
