The location is great. Close to Fisherman's Wharf, Cannery Row, Pebble Beach. Hotel is located right on the beach. Very close to the freeway and The maid service was less than par if you are staying more than one night. Glasses were not replaced, turn down service was was sloppy. Glass was left outside the room and not picked up.

You can't beat this spot, right on the pacific and if you have a view of the oceanc, you can be lulled to sleep by the breaking waves and wake up to see dolphins and sealions in the surf. Our kids swam only a few yards away from them. The staff are very friendly and the communal areas are nice.... More

We just came home from a 4 day get away at the Best Western. There just isn't another place in Monterey to compare to this hotel. It is right in the sand dunes on one of the most fantastic beaches in California You can walk for miles of white sand beach into Monterey and Pacific Grove or north to Marina,... More

Stayed 3 nights in August for a vacation. I love that the hotel is right on the beach and the cafe serves really wonderful food. I wish the bar/lounge was open longer hours like it was on a previous visit. We had requested a room away from the pet friendly area and were given a room just one floor above... More

This hotel is in an enviable location, right on the waterfront. We stayed as part of a two day stop in the Monterey Bay area on a road trip from San Francisco to San Diego and the opportunity to stay right on the beach was just what we needed. The room was clean and comfortable, the pool was inviting and... More

This hotel looks a little tired, but the room was nice and it is right on the beach which was fantastic for an early morning run. The cost is high, but compared to other hotels in the area it was actually a pretty good value especially since it is on the beach. We stayed in one of the rooms that... More

The hotel is right on the beach. Our visit to Monterey was specifically to enjoy the marine life of the area and it astounded me to wake up to dolphins, sea lions and pelicans right outside our front door. It is a very special place indeed. Expensive but worth it in my book. Plus, it allows pets!!!

This is a great place to stay! Loved being directly on the beach. We ate breakfast at the hotel and were very impressed with quality and service for the price. Hotel staff was very helpful. The hotel building is a little older...but is clean and well-maintained. I only have good things to say about this hotel.

The beachfront setting with its great views and location compensates for a very tired hotel whose rooms are very much in need of renovation. The rooms are comfortable, clean and quiet, but worn and outdated. However, having your morning coffee while watching the pelicans dive for fish and seeing dolphin pods swim by is a great treat. We spent all... More

The views from the hotel are spectacular showing the harbor, sea lions swimming by,and dolphins. This is our third year staying there and sadly the conditions are deteriorating. Worn out comforters, sagging mattress, and poor housekeeping service. Prices, however, have only risen. The $18 per night parking fee is ridiculous considering they have their own lot with plenty of space.... More
