Air-conditioner / dehumidifier fan speed and temperature are controlled by local power authority. Guests should not expect their input to override that authority. Bring you own dehumidifier / fan. No matter what size pet you are traveling with the rate is $30.00 per night plus tax, and self-parking is $18.00 per night.

This hotel offers spectacular ocean views and direct beach access, however the rooms are in complete disrepair and are in need of serious cleaning, maintenance and upgrades. Door to my room was busted, carpets were old and filthy, and there were layers of dust and dirt everywhere. Also there were visible holes around light fixtures and wall switches. Definitely not...

So many things made this hotel just okay. Definitely nothing fancy, except for the phenomenal location. Perfect place if you want right on the beach. Keep in mind that you are right on the beach and the days I was there the surf was very high and it was extremely loud...all night long. A bit pricey for what you get... More

Best Western Plus Beach Resort Monterey is located on the beach. It is a location we love and have stayed there many times over the last 21 years. The staff was very helpful, the room, while a bit small, was very pleasant and clean. Absolutely no complaints. Love the window coverings. The shade powers down for complete privacy. We were... More

The hotel is right on the beach, which is really nice. The rooms were nice, and the place was classy enough. However, check-in took FOREVER, there was a surprise $18 parking fee, and a private party was being held on the patio on the night I was there, limited where guests could lounge and watch the waves. For the high... More

My friends and I truly enjoyed this hotel! As you will see in other reviews, the rooms are a little dated, but don't stop reading the reivew there! Read on... The beach access is absolutely amazing. You won't be "near" the beach, you will be right on the beach. DO spring for a beach-facing room! Our room was actually quite... More

We returned to the Beach Resort in Monterey for two nights over the weekend for our anniversary. We have stayed there several times in the past, and were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and efficient. We had an ocean front room, and the view was over the top beautiful. The hotel is beginning to show it's age, and... More

First trip to Monterey & we were very disappointed in the quality & service of this hotel. The carpet was filthy and felt nasty to the touch. No answer when calling the front desk for wash cloths that btw should automatically come with the room. Not to mention the amount of money they charge per night was sooooo not worth... More

We vacation a lot and I like this hotel! I don't like the parking fee....the freeway noise is bad in some of the rooms....bathroom is small, but otherwise it's a great place. They are always friendly. The grounds, lobby, pool are well maintained.

This hotel is a complete contradiction, as you walk into the lobby you get a sense of a nice hotel, even eating in the restaurant you would think you are in luxury ..........
