No Air Conditioning was quite a surprise for a California hotel in 2014. I realize it's Monterey and usually has a cooler climate, however this was not the case during our stay. It was 94 degrees that day and the room was still stuffy and warm when we checked in at 10 o'clock at night. Most people like to have... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your lengthy review. While you went into great detail in your review I disagree with several key statements. I don't think it is rude to recommend an article on the very website you are posting your review. TripAdvisor wrote the article to assist guests traveling to the area. You never mentioned asking...

After a long day on the road (at the tail end of our two week vacation) we were anxious to find a place to stay in Monterey that wouldn't break the bank and Best Western De Anza Inn seemed like the answer. I was worried at first. As I filled out registration for two rooms the clerk told me there... More

No ventilation, loud noises and poor customer service. They boost about being rated high with trip advisor. Hotel staff was informed of my ventilation issue ( no air conditioning ) and they failed by not replying to my message or contacting me in my room.

Thank you for your recent review of our property. Please allow me to review your complaint regarding the customer service received. You left a voicemail message about the room being hot and air conditioning. The front desk agent was away from the desk and when she returned she did not check for messages, thus she didn't know about the issue... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your review of our property. I would recommend reading the TripAdvisor article regarding air conditioning on the Monterey Peninsula.

Being terrible travel snobs, we generally only stay in a Best Western if nothing better is available, or if the travel budget is running a little low late in a trip. Generally, we look forward to a stay in a Best Western with a mixture of trepidation and resigned acceptance. We've not had good experiences in the past. However, either... More

The hotel is in a very convenient location. It is very clean and quiet. Although the lobby area is small, it serves its purpose as a place to eat in the morning, congregate and use the computer. The staff is very nice and helps create a nice atmosphere. The rooms are very comfortable and a good size.

Super attentive, pleasant staff & a genuinely friendly & helpful manager make a stay in Monterey very enjoyable indeed. Nothing garish or overwrought or unctuous, just down-home decent folks in a beautiful setting doing a good job to make your stay worthwhile. Yet another wonderful Best Western.

Be warned that there is no A/C in the room. This means you don't have a fan and the room is very stale and you can't control the temperature. Road is noisy so it's not feasible to open the window. The elevator was out of compliance and the elevator and vending area is very loud and echos throughout the building.
