Unfortunately, none of the amenities were available as described. The rooms were fine and comfortable. The staff was average although I called the front desk on 3 occasions. First you have to go through a boatload of questions to finally get to someone and then one time it wasn't answered. The hotel is undergoing construction. The internet was very slow.... More

I have been going to this hotel for 15 years. Has an excellent location on the beach. The last 4 years I have been going here it has been under construction with no results. The walkways to get to your room are plywood. The rooms are extremely dated with the table in the room being held together by large clear... More

April 2014, this hotel is under major construction. I would ask prior to a stay overnight if the hotel is under construction, I did not and I would have had my family stay else where. The rooms are original from an apparent look of 1983, every room I am anticipating is bad. Wait for the update. If you only care... More

We have stayed here before (originally on business, now leisure) because we like the location (not directly downtown and right on a beach). This time, there was major remodeling happening, which was a minor annoyance. The restaurant had been moved to a temporary spot off the lobby. The hostess went out of her way to help us. We were there... More

Although room was fine, the loud sawing/hammering was everywhere, internet was slow, the temporary location of restaurant apparently made them forget to bring bowls! Primarily stayed there due to beach location, saw dolphins from the balcony.

Had better experiences in the past. Check in really sucked, but tried to not let it distract from the trip. Over all will go again because of location. Would I suggest this to others, sure. Its all about the location. They were also doing massive remodeling which kinda sucked, but hopefully will be better in the future.

A customer for over 40 years but very disappointed this time. Room wasn't ready at 4pm check in. Rooms weren't cleaned until after 4 pm. Hotel under construction with a great deal of noise and windows in the lobby partially covered.

Let me first state that I LOVE the best western beach resort in Monterey. My husband and I come to visit every year. It's just so peaceful and everyone is normally so nice and inviting. This year, it was a girls trip. We wanted to get away from every day life to enjoy some relaxation on the beach. Little did... More

You shouldn't have to ask, but now I will. If it's under construction, avoid it at all costs. From the noise and grit to the overall lack of ambiance, ugh. The main, and only, attraction of this hotel is its setting. The beach is fantastic!

The setting was beautiful, right on the ocean. The building was worn out and noisy construction was going on. The rooms have not been updated in quite some time, nor thoroughly cleaned around the furniture legs. Lots of thick dust. I was given a small discount on my room but still had to put up with the drilling and grinding... More
