“Clean and Comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Good place to stay in Monterey. Walking distance to wharf and short drive to cannery row. Helpful staff that really cares and went out of their way to help. Bed was comfortable and room was clean and well laid out.

This hotel is great, nice rooms and great breakfast and the pool and hot tub are great too. Hotel is a nice walk to the wharf and the ocean. We did a whale watching tour the day that we checked out and they suggested that we park our car at the hotel after we checked out and walk down to the boat instead of paying parking downtown. very accommodating staff and would stay there again.

This is our first time in Monterey and we chose this hotel because it is a best western and the location. When we arrived we were told our room is on the first floor two doors to the right from the lobby (114). I asked if we could have a different room that would be quieter and was told 'this is our last room.' The hotel staff then assured me it was a quiet room. When we entered, the room smelled and the carpet felt wet. It was fairly quiet but you could hear every noise in the hallway. People talking, doors slamming and kids running. To make matters worse, the toilet clogged and my husband had to get a plumber's helper to clear it. I do not consider this a 3 star hotel. Very disappointed.

We experienced friendly staff during check-in, a clean and well appointed room, comfortable bed during our 2 night stay in Monterey. We requested a 3rd floor room because I read reviews about noise from rooms above. We had no noise issues. No view to speak of, but we didn't spend time in the room except to sleep. Location was within walking distance to downtown. Breakfast was not so good, although plenty of other people were eating it. Nice bakery around corner as well as Denny's.

We love staying at Best Western Hotels. They are all in great locations. Easy to walk to all of the sites. The rooms are clean and the beds comfortable. The breakfasts are adequate. This is the first time the check in staff was not friendly or helpful. Went back later when that staff member had left.

First, the pros: free wi-fi and breakfast, decent location, and friendly and helpful staff. But the cons outweigh these pros - most importantly, the rooms have the thinnest walls I have ever experienced. We could hear the conversations of the people in the next room, and it sounded like a herd of elephants were in the room above us. I felt sorry for the people below us, even though we tried to walk quietly. If you have young children or are a light sleeper, I highly advise avoiding this hotel. Next, the breakfast--while free, and staffed by a very nice lady--is pretty pathetic. Microwave pancakes are pretty gross. The breakfast room is tiny compared to the number of people trying to crowd in, and having only one staff member dedicated to getting all the food out is just ridiculous. Plus, Monterey is a big destination for families - and there is exactly one high chair available. So if you have two young children, or arrive at a time when another family is using the high chair, you're out of luck. Finally, the price. I'm sorry, I know all the hotels in Monterey are expensive, but the price we were charged, given the poor quality of the room, is just unconscionable. As my husband puts it, Monterey is crowded with over-priced, poorly-made hotels. We would not stay here again.

Enjoyed the accommodation and the staff. The continental breakfast was good, crowded and the food went fast. Some guests had to dine in the lobby. We had to sit at two different tables and with our luck both tables needed leveling. Rocking tables make unhappy and uncomfortable diners. We were there with the 4 year old great-granddaughter for the aquarium, the tickets were included in the room cost, easier than standing in line at the venue.
