Our trip to Monterey was to view the college there and I wanted to surprise the budding Marine Environmentalist with staying ON the beach. This hotel did not disappoint. I called the day before arrival, spoke to the manager and confirmed everything was set....My reservation was made through Booking.com and had been set up as one queen bed vs. two....he... More

Room was too small. You have to stand in the shower to close the bathroom door. The lights in the room are very odd, and the bed covers are very worn and old. I didn't care for the bed, the bed frame sort of hurts to sit on the bed because it is sort of sharp and hard on your... More

Great place to stay. EVERYONE is friendly and courteous and go out of their way to assist you. Can't get a better ocean view. The ocean was a few steps away from our room. Can't wait to go back. If you eat in the Beach Café you can look out the window and see the Dolphins and Seals every morning... More

I visited for 3 nights in June 2014, and stayed in oceanfront room on second floor. This is an older property and the rooms are adequate. There is not a private deck, but these rooms have a great big window with unique shades (one filters light, the other blocks light) that rise/fall with a push of a button. But don't... More

We stayed two nights at this hotel. We had a double bed room facing the highway. The room was very outdated. The decor looked like it was from the 70's and hasn't been updated at all. The sheets were old and worn. The carpet was old and musky. Overall, the room was very depressing. The service was poor - the... More

The room we had was with a sea view which i recall we had to pay more for but it was worth it. The rooms themselves are beyond dated it actually looked like... More

Best Western Beach Resort in Monterey has an excellent location for a family vacation. The Hotel Staff were all very accommodating and will go out of their normal routine to assist. The Café Restaurant is overlooking the ocean and the food presentation was awesome.
