The walls paper thin, we heard people stomping upstairs, children running and screaming down the hallway at early hours of the morning. Plainly too much noise around. The A/C too was loud -- woke us up every time it went on and off throughout the night. We had to shut it down on the second night, which we soon regretted... More

This room was perfect if you needed a second bedroom. The room was very large and well equipped. Need a taxi call Alex Zepeda 831-595-8142. He came in the morning to pick us up and take us to our meeting and was there to take us back very promptly. He knew where this hotel was and also recommended it as... More

A friend and I stayed one night here as part of a visit to the Steinbeck Museum. The hotel is undergoing a refresh now, but we didn't notice any noise or problems during our stay. The bathroom is large with the sink outside the tub/toilet area, making it easy for more than one person to get ready in the morning.... More

Had a two room suite, which was perfect if someone wanted to go to bed early we could sit in the living room without bothering them while they went to bed. Same thing in the morning if someone wanted to sleep in.

We chose this BW Plus for the choice of having a two room 'suite'. Although the hotel is definitely really old, it has been renewed recently. The hotel accommodations were good except there were a few things that could improve one's stay. For instance, the sink was outside the bathroom. This is just something I really dislike because it's inconvenient,... More

We did not have reservations and walked in. Staff was efficient and check in and check out were easy. We visited over Labor Day weekend - BIG MISTAKE- it was very expensive for what it offered. The room we had was big and comfortable. The sink was outside of the bathroom and the water pressure in the shower was not... More

We stayed here 2 nights to visit Monterrey and the coast down to Big Sur. It's a short (~20 minute) drive to the high-rent district of Monterrey/Carmel. The rooms are clean and the staff is good. There are a lot of great restaurants and shopping in Salinas. Some reviews of the hotels along the 101 freeway say noise is a... More
