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

Booked my trip on Get-a room but nothing on the site about the construction going on. Beds were way too soft as were the pillows. Asked for extra pillows but they never came. For the price I think we got gipped. Was right on the beach though. $18 for parking? No mention of that either. Wouldn't recommend it. Also, no... More

I got a pretty low price via Priceline, but it was absolutely not worth it. I don't mind the hotel being a little dated, and the location right on the beach is amazing (even though I had a room overlooking the freeway...still, didn't mind that as I had a discounted room). I wasn't aware of the construction when I booked... More

We paid cash at check in, but they still charged my card for the whole trip! Thank goodness I noticed before I left. I went in and asked about it and they said they had no record of it . What? Long story short, they agreed to credit my card back. As I was walking to the car I noticed... More

If you manage to get a room facing the ocean, you're totally in luck. The views are beautiful, and it can be quiet. However, if you get a room on the opposite of the hotel, beware. The highway noise kept me awake. I had to move rooms twice - the first room the air conditioning unit was not working, and... More

This hotel has the potential to be a great place to stay, but..... it is undergoing a renovation. The restaurant was closed, and a substitute area used for eating. The food was good, but it just wasn't a restaurant you'd expect here. The construction goes from 10 am - 6 pm and it is noisy, noisy. The walkways are apparently... More

The view is spectacular and the beach is directly below with easy access. BUT I was not notified of the construction that went on daily from 9AM until 4PM. I brought my family there to relax and unwind. The noise from the construction was EXTREMELY disturbing and it didn't matter whether we were at the pool, on the beach or... More
