“Very Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

We stayed at this hotel for one night in our way to LA. It is a good value hotel. The room was big enough for a family with two young kids and very clean. Parking and breakfast were included in the room rate, although the breakfast was not very good.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Stayed in the oversize double. The room was clean and beds reasonably comfortable. Staff was friendly & accommodating. Breakfast was OK, except for lack of space one morning.

Why not more stars? 1) As others have noted, the walls are THIN! I can't understand WHY a hotel is built w/ this defect :( 2) Lack of ac unit, which I use in "fan only" setting to cover such ambient noise as I experienced here, such as talking, thumping, running showers and slamming doors. Usually that alone will make up for noise but the walls here seemed exceptionally thin.

Other than that, it is somewhat far away from the Aquarium and shops. If you are a very sound sleeper this is a good choice. Otherwise I would choose another hotel.

We have stayed at this Best Western at least twice a year for 5 years. The rooms are as good as ever though the maintenance is beginning to show signs of lack of attention to detail. There are now items that have been "repaired" poorly. The fixtures and hardware in the bathrooms is the most representative of this. The breakfast used to feature breakfast burritos and a nice make-your-own fresh Belgian waffle set-up in addition to bagels, muffins, patries, cereal, etc. The last couple of years that has diminished. There are no more burritos and instead of the Belgian waffles there are these card board like frozen regular waffles that at best are a low end generic brand. We will likely consider staying elsewhere as we now spend extra to eat out for breakfast.

I was very pleased with the size and cleanliness of my room. Housekeeping were timely in cleaning the room each day and always did an excellent job. It was quiet at night and the bed was very comfortable. The room was advertised as having air conditioning but this facility does not have air conditioning. There was a ceiling fan and a sliding glass door for ventilation. The weather was mild so it was fine but I would not stay here in the summer months. The breakfast was adequate, there were many choices. The breakfast room was nice and the attendants kept the food supplied at all times. Parking was under the hotel in several garages but it was fine for us except there was a large area all boarded off so no one could park there. This was my 4th visit to this hotel and I would stay there again.

This is an ok hotel if you are looking for a good value hotel. The staff seemed overwhelmed at check in as the rooms are obviously "not" ready until check in time. Therefore. You have long lines at 4. As for close to the wharf? Mmm. About 5 blocks. You really have to drive to get most places. Rooms. They could invest in feather pillows. I do not like the typical hardness of hotel pillows. They did make attempt at upgrades. Lots if door slamming in the morning! Overall. It worked.

When visiting Monterey, California, the BW Monterey Inn is the place to stay. Conveniently located to everything, it provides indoor parking, excellent rooms and a more than adequate breakfast. The staff is most helpful and the area is generally quiet which adds to the restful atmosphere.

Absolutely make sure that your BW point are credited to your frequent guest account and also check your room before getting your luggage up. You may get, at no charge, an antique TV set to watch. Location was fairly good but make sure that your GPS unit can locate it since mine brought me directly behind the hotel.
