Very glad we booked at this Motel. This website helped us choose the Best Western Beach Dunes Inn. Hotel is out from the main city, closer to CSUMB. That was great because we could avoid the traffic jam going into downtown Monterey primetime on the weekend and just stick close to the college (which is real ugly, btw. MPC is... More

Another Best Western experience as expected. Big clean rooms, the included breakfast decent for a Best Western, free and ample parking, and a Jacuzzi. My son was disappointed that there was no pool. The hotel is located near the beach, but strong cold winds and waves and a freezing ocean made swimming impossible, so a pool would actually have been... More

I booked a reservation through Hotwire last minute a couple hours before... It was one of the best hotel experiences My family has had.. The pillows were fresh as well as the blankets and the staff was very welcoming. Their spa is amazing! Definitely wont be our last time there.

Not a deluxe hotel but this is as good as you can get for the money... clean, everything in working condition, good Wi-Fi, breakfast in the morning, outdoor Jacuzzi, 5 min walking to the beach. The only complaint is that the power outlets are all very loose. It's very hard to keep chargers or whatever you plug in to stay... More

Restful motel outside of busy Monterey. We stayed here after a trip to the aquarium and enjoyed time near the ocean which is just a short drive or walk from the motel. We were able to enjoy a leisure breakfast of standard items; the hot food was hot, and there was a very good selection. I have stayed here before... More

It was just what we needed- close to Monterey, affordable, clean, spacious enough for our whole family. The town of Marina also had lots of good food, a great discount grocery store really close to the hotel. We were really glad we chose this hotel.

A fine alternative to the pricey Monterey hotels. Right near highway 1, so you can easily get to Monterey. Terrific location near the dunes and the park. Best ocean access is through the Sanctuary Resort. A good solid 2-queen room, free parking, and great mid-week deals to be had through PriceLine's back door. Hot breakfast, also free. Lauren at the... More

Excellent hotel with GREAT beds. On the beach and near restaurants and shopping. Very helpful and great staff. Very happy to find that they had rooms available for our entire party over the holiday. We had a later check in and they accommodated all of our needs.
