This hotel overall was pleasant to stay at. The room was clean and there was breakfast provided. The location was extremely convenient, located right within short walking distance of the Monterey bay Aquarium and Cannery Row. My only complaint is the bump at the entrance of the parking garage; I don't see how anyone driving a normal car would be... More

We stayed there for a night while on our California Road trip. The location is very convenient to sight-see downtown Monterey and Cannery Row. The room was large and clean,We had a room facing the street and we had no issues with noise. Breakfast was good, but the dining room was too small. It was difficult to find a place... More

The location was ideal, the room was beautiful- the wood beam ceiling, the bench seat, fireplace, the beds were comfortable, the bathroom was a little dated but clean and functional. The breakfast was ok , the afternoon wine and cheese was enjoyable, the parking was convenient and $15 a night acceptable. Most definitely if I were to visit Monterey again... More

It has been years since I stayed at a Best Western, perhaps they are all along these lines. The front desk was very friendly and efficient answered all of our questions. Getting to and from your room was a bit of a maze - once you learn your way it is fine. The room was huge and clean. It had... More

We knew going in there was no air-conditioning, and while it wasn't sweltering, we could have used a ceiling fan, at the very least. The room was large and was in the back section of the property, which kept the road noise at bay (no pun intended). But because of the lack of a/c we had to keep the slider... More

The location for this hotel is excellent, the staff was extremely helpful and the breakfast hit the spot. We stayed in one of the larger rooms with a fireplace on the 3rd floor. The hotel is slightly outdated but it was a non factor for us. If you want walking distance from Cannery Row and the aquarium this is an... More

Our family visited Monterey and chose the Best Western based on Trip Advisor reviews and it's walking location to Cannery Row and the Aquarium. The hotel staff at the front desk were great.... very friendly and professional. The hotel on the outside looks fine. Parking is available, but it's very, very tight in the underground garage. The rooms were the... More

Stopped for the night in Monterey as we had never visited before and we were returning to our home in S. California. This Best Western property has a great location. I would advise reservations well in advance, particularly during the busy summer season. The hotel is very nice and clean with above average rooms. There is an evening wine and... More
