The first thing I noticed is that the staff here are super friendly. Clean room and comfortable beds. The bed comes with several pillows, which I loved. Also love the lamps with the outlets. Only one complaint, our remote didn't work the best....First world problems. I also appreciated that the housekeeping staff was courteous and respectful. They didn't barge in... More

We found this place during a recent road trip. The outside of the hotel was appealing and the price was right. My traveling companion can't walk stairs easily so the elevator was a welcome relief. The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are clean. The only negative thing are the hotel towels. They are tiny. How do they make... More

This hotel was clean and nice. Quiet and the staff and management were very helpful with any questions and suggestions. A very pleasant stay compared to our last Best Western experience 2 days before.

I would rate this hotel as an average "Best Western Plus" with poor availability of adequate restaurant facilities. I might note that over the past 50+ years I have, when available, traveled exclusively with Best Western. We were extremely surprised to find that the Hotel had upgraded us to "Business Suite" accommodations.

Great stay in a very clean and very friendly hotel this Best Western was a great value and in a great location. McDonalds and In & Out Burger right next door and very easy access on and off the freeway. Need a quick stop or a spot during a Monterey, Salinas, Carmel stop. This is your place

This hotel rates somewhat better than average for me, but not quite up to "very" good. The room size is nice, had a nice little frig in room and the wifi worked well and was easy to get. Would prefer an eatery other than McDonald's nearby. Continental bkfst looked pretty standard, but is nice to have. Shampoo, soap etc standard.... More

This is nice hotel located near Monterey, Santa Cruz and Pinnacles national monument. If you don't find anything there, this might be your alternative. Nice staff but doesn't worth $170 per night for free Wifi, clean room with a continental breakfast. Oh well...
