There certainly are more luxurious and definately more expensive hotels in the area, but few can meet the price and location that this property does. It is right on the beach and only a mile or so from Fisherman's wharf. The rooms are ok but if you have an ocean view room it goes a long way for making up... More

Although the location right on the beach was pleasant that is pretty much the only good thing we can say about this low quality hotel. It is situated several miles outside the centre of a monterey, just off the freeway. A car is needed to get into town. Our room was awful. We booked an ocean view with two queens... More

We had a lovely 22 wedding anniversary weekend here. The location was right next to the ocean, so you couldn't go wrong with that. We met a couple who go to this hotel every year for their anniversary and they were celebrating their 40th. Make sure you come prepared for warm and cold weather as you never know what you... More

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of a trip down the PCH and were disappointed to say least. The beach side location was good but our room overlooked the freeway which was very noisy and the room itself was small, dark and not very clean. The restaurant was nice and watching dolphins whilst eating breakfast is special but... More

The location of the Best Western Plus Beach Resort is so nice as one can walk from one's room to the beach area and take a walk or have other beach fun there. As such it is a scenic Best Western and gets very high remarks in that regards. At night, one can listen to the sound of the waves... More

We visited here for 2 nights in early August, not having been to Monterey before we didn't realise that this hotel was placed a couple miles north of the main town and next to the town of Seaside. The room was quite expensive and we had to pay extra for a rollaway. Given the location this would have been ok... More

We found a hair in the fridge, on the shower curtain and under the wrapped, brand new soap in the soap dish. The table legs and board surrounding the box spring had smears and the furniture in general is worn out. The pillows were hard, the mattress hurt my back. The towel rack was dusty. The pool was nice, the... More

If you want to be on the beaches of Monterey, this is it. If you want luxury, choose another. THis is not a destination hotel in my opinion but it met our expectations for what we needed. Price was reasonable except for the $18 daily parking fee. We enjoyed our stay and would consider staying her again.

There are not many hotels that sit directly on an accessible beach in Monterey, but this Best Western offers lots of beach to walk and run on, and and ocean to swim in (lifeguards are on duty here)!
