Stayed at the very average Best Western Plus on the Beach at Monterey. Rooms are very average but views and access to the beach can't be beat. Get the ocean view rooms. Saw swimming and jumping dolphins and sea lions or otters from our room and also the hotel restaurant. Amazing views from the restaurant. Renovated and nice lighting and... More

Food and price are so-so, but location and ocean view are great if you are a hotel guest. Hotel is very nice, great beach location and friendly staff

This restaurant was recently remodeled and looks very nice. The views are fantastic. Our family had 2 dinners and a breakfast there. The food was good overall. I thought the prices for dinner were very reasonable for the quality. I was a little disappointed in breakfast though. The food was good, but the quantity was very small for the price... More

The Best Western Beach Resort's hotel restaurant is good...not great, but when you hike all day, or shop all day, or kayak all day and then come back to this terrific hotel....it is nice that it is there.

The pork tenderloins were dry, the potatoes uninspired. The Key Lime Pie delicious. The presentations were nice, but I wonder if the chef is just past her/his prime.

We had the fried calamari to start... it was so good that we ordered another... we never got around to an entry. Very fresh and fried with leeks and banana peppers, a first for us... wonderful!

Wonderful presentation... cooked to perfection. Seabass fabulous. Joaquin served us and gave us several choices of what we should eat and he was right on the money! We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and his service. The plate was very eye appealing as the chef made it very appetizing! We would eat there again!

Our server and bartender were awesome. Very friendly. The view was spectacular. We went in 15 minutes before they closed and they were okay with and very welcoming. Hubby and I have been staying at the resort for over 20 years. Even though there was construction going on, it did nothing to ruin our stay. We will be back again... More

This evening I had dinner at the Cafe Beach at the Best Western Plus. I had a great server and bartender, Joaquin and Alan. The service was excellent at both the bar and at our table for dinner. Food was good. Was pleasantly surprised to have gotten bacon and avocado without asking for them on my burger. The burger was... More
