Wanted a hotel for a quick overnighter on the way up the coast, and this Best Western fit the bill to a "T." Lobby area is welcoming and immaculate with well-kept furniture. Check in was quick and painless, desk clerk friendly and helpful. Ability to park right in front of your room made load-in a snap. Room was large, clean... More

The location was ideal for us as it was meant to be a one night stopover enroute from Monterey to LA. We chose a family room to accommodate all of us and the bags. Free wifi was very useful and breakfast the next morning was simple yet filling. Burritos ran out very quickly which was a shame. Check-in and check-out... More

This property is very well run and maintained. My room was huge for the price and very comfortable. I thought the price was higher for the town, but on arrival found many more hotels than I expected, so this is a more popular destination that I expected. Breakfast was the normal menu, but this morning the oatmeal cooker turned itself... More

I was pleasantly surprised at just how nice and comfortable this hotel is. I'm a Best Western rewards member, so I have stayed in many of these hotels. I have come to expect a good stay, and this establishment did not disappoint. In fact, it far exceeded my expectations. The lobby was lovely, decorated beautifully for Christmas. The front desk...

The rooms are clean and good sized. My wife really liked the bathroom set up. The breakfast is an expanded continental one but adequate. There is no elevator so, should you need such, be sure to ask for a ground floor room.

Nice rooms - we had two rooms for a total of seven people. Comfortable beds, very clean. Breakfast wasn't too imaginative, but it was good. We were very pleased and would stay again. Neighborhood was a little dicey, but all was quiet and we felt safe.

I'll get to the heart of the matter right away: the hotel says it's completely smoke free, but that really isn't the case. When we opened the door to our room, there was a moderate smell of cigarettes. After about a half hour, I got used to the smell and didn't notice it anymore. This could be related to the... More

We stopped at the best western for a few days rest during our California tour. The hotel was clean and tidy. A nice heated pool was a bonus. Breakfast was ok and the staff were friendly and helpful. Just a short drive to the local beach.

Was given a room with 2 queen beds (on my request). Good sized room, fairly current furnishings, sizeable bath, with 2 counters (1 with sink; 1 for makeup). Take care, bath... More

We were looking for something inexpensive but clean for a short stay after a long drive. This was not it. The room looked nice enough at first but didn't quite pan out. The bed was horribly uncomfortable and the pillows lumpy. The chair in the room had rips in the arms of the upholstery. The bedside lamps bulb was broken... More
