“Oasis of tranquility in Paradise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

This Best Western is located near beautiful coastal areas and tourist attractions just south of San Francisco. The rates are very reasonable for the comfortable, cozy, quiet rooms there. I highly recommend them.

Good motel, friendly staff. Tight parking. Room was comfortable and clean, and everything operated. One of few Wifi's I have used that worked quickly. Didn't have time to use the breakfast service. Very convenient to Monterey attractions, 17 Mile Drive, aquarium, etc.

We always stay at this Best Western. We love the staff and the rooms are always clean. If we need anything extra they are always very helpful. It is close to a lot of places that you want to visit. We always have fun staying there.

We stayed two nights in this Best Western. The first night we were in a room at the very end of the motel (a handicap accessible room). The room was clean and comfortable but the walls were paper thin. We could hear whole conversations from the next room. The guests around us decided to talk until 2 am. We were not staying in that room but as we were checking out we asked if there were quieter rooms. Our second night was in a 2nd floor room that was more sound proof. I would recommend this motel based on that room. It was basic but clean and comfortable.

The rooms are old, most noticeably in the bathroom fixtures. The bed was so soft and when we asked if there was an alternate room available the staff were indifferent and just said "no". When I returned later having found another hotel down the street with extremely helpful staff, I told the staff at Park Crest I would be checking out early and again the resposne was indifference.

We come to Monterey twice a year from France and this time we decided for a Hotel near the beautiful Monterey Shopping Center. The location ins great as you can even go walking for shopping and even go to Whole Foods !... while being close to the old Fisherman's Wharf.
Very good location !
The room is spacious with very clean bathrooms !... super !
We did not appreciate the old carpet smelling bad as if we were on an old, old house !
Pillows are really too small and absolutely not confortable !...
Small details that can be easily fixed... so we hope they will ...

Room Tip: Try not to be near the staircase as some customers leave their room and meet there for smoking...lat...

Rooms were nice & clean, only problem I had, was our room had no air conditioning. Very close proximity to Monterey Bay Aquarium & Fisherman's Wharf. Also close to Mall, & Carmel is just a few miles away, along with Pebble Beach.

Room Tip: All rooms were the same,
