Friday night in Monterey, nothing to be found. Nearest was Watsonville, so we found ourselves at the Best Value Inn. Close to the road, lots of traffic noise. Comfortable bed. Clean room, funky shower head. A bit pricy to be calling itself a best value.

This motel represents reasonable value for money but the area is not particularly attractive. The room was quite well furnished, clean and large enough. Breakfast was of limited quality and choice but adequate. There are several diners nearby.

We found ourselves in dire need of a place to stay when every place south of here to Monterey was full on an August Saturday night, so we didn't have time to research the amenities. The room was clean and comfortable, the staff friendly and courteous, but I guess I thought that we'd still get a coffee maker and kleenex... More

Upon check-in the service was friendly. The room was very simple and plain and completely outdated. The bath tub had stains around the drain outlet. There is very little parking and not enough parking for everyone when the vacancy is full. We had to block in their laundry entrance since there was no partking available when we returned from the...

I have stayed at this chain before. However, This location was possibly the worst motel experience I have had in my life. My better half and myself were in town for a function and on a tight schedule. We wanted to get checked in get ready and go to the function. First off, we were given a tiny room. Smaller... More

It´s a basic place, but works fine. Rooms are decent, and staff was actually very helpful. The only annoying thing was that the internet didn´t work in our room. It worked when I went to the reception, so the room must have been outside the signal area..

Check in took a very, very long time, not sure why because there were no other customers being helped. The room did not have the table and chairs, as the picture shows. It did however have two different types of chairs in separate places, both of which had large stains on them. Carpet was not clean, I found a bottle... More
