This hotel is located on Munras a short walk (15 minutes) from fisherman's wharf. It is an old hotel but has been renovated recently by the look of it. The rooms have new carpet, TVs, vanity and tile in the bathrooms. Our room had a fridge and microwave too. They have DirecTV with a good selection of channels. The breakfast... More

Room was very clean, quiet, comfortable. I got a great rate. You can walk to Fishermans Wharf and The Cannery, Monterey Bay Aquarium if you wear comfortable shoes. Parking can be especially near the Aquarium in the summer and fall. The hotel is a really easy drive to Point Lobos, Carmel, 17 mile drive. Shopping mall is just up the... More

We got a great room here for a very good price. Parking and Wifi included. We got the setup where there's a separate "living" room with a sofa bed and a main bedroom with 2 queen beds. The hotel was in a residential area and super quiet/relaxing. It was too cold to use the pool while we were there but... More

We enjoyed our stay here and it was pretty close to fisherman's wharf which was the only place we visited. The hotel seemed to be recently renovated and looked very nice. One of the bathroom lights were out but didn't effect our use so we didn't call it in. The breakfast was not the greatest quality but they did have... More

We only had 1 night in November 2015 as part of a touring trip and this was a pre-booked hotel for us. The staff were very freindly and helpful but in terms of hotel quality I would assess this as pretty average. The room was clean, I was surprised at the small size of the bed considering this is America... More

The best Western Park Crest is a great value in an otherwise expensive area. It's clean, well-maintained and very close to all of the activities and restaurants in the area. If you would want to get a workout while visiting, try the Monterey Sports Center, only a few minutes down the hill on Franklin Street.

Hotel is not so far from Monterey Down Town. Just a 15 Min. walk. It’s a good starting point for the “Path of History” part of Monterey Breakfast is complementary and nothing special. Room is ok but very cold if you stay in chilly period of the year.
