Nice quiet location but not too off the beaten track. Convenient to Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row. It was too cold to use the pool but it looked very inviting. The staff was welcoming and the property clean.

We stayed at BW over NYE to welcome 2020. The hotel was easy to find and had great staff! They were very friendly and willing to give s some info on entertainment around town. The rooms were clean and comfy and had all the amenities you need, including easy parking right out your door!
I think my boyfriend and I enjoyed the free continental breakfast the most! Such a huge spread of delicious food to fuel us up for a day of adventuring.
We didn't use the pool or hot tub but its centrally located within the property. The hotel itself is in a great location, easily walkable to the wharf and some yummy local restaurants like Heirloom Pizza. There is a trolley stop nearby to but we didn't use it as we were happy to walk to Alvarado street where a lot of the great bars and shops are. We loved the large fridge in the room to bring out leftovers back to and store a bottle of champagne for NYE at midnight. We will definitely be back!

A moderate hotel in convenient location. Room is clean and simple decorated. Shampoo, conditioner and body wash need to push hard from wall attached containers.
Breakfast provided in bag picked up at front desk, coffee and juice limited to one per person.

We booked very last minute (an hour before arrival) and for the price had quite low expectations. Yes, it's not centrally located but if that's important to you then pay more to get it. The wharf is about 20 minute walk away or a few minutes drive, so nothing unbearable!
We got upgraded so got spoilt to a little two bedroom suite type thing, both rooms attached to the bathroom area! Each room had a TV and were spacious and clean. It's not the sort of place you would be doing much more than using as a base to sleep but we did spend some time in the jacuzzi which was lovely.
Breakfast was better than expected, given other hotels of similar cost up until now had only offered a few continental items. Here, we were spoilt to what you might expect more of from an American breakfast (waffles and a few cooked items) The room got extremely busy and we had been down there very early!

Thanks for having us

Best Western has breakfast included, great location, easy parking, spacious rooms with a microwave and refrigerator. The toilet and shower were separate from the sink, which means 2 people can get ready at the same time. The closet was large with lots of hangers and 2 luggage racks which made it really easy to live 3 days out of a suitcase. I was surprised that everything in my cooler fit perfectly in the refrigerator. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rates were really good, too. I became a BW Club member in the process and will probably continue to stay in BW hotels in the future.

Hotel is simple and has everything you need, pool is heated and parking was good. Noise level was minimal and location is a short drive to main attractions. Breakfast was grab and go but offered items you could heat up.

The hotel is clean and the rooms are very comfortable and nicely decorated. Next time I wood ask for a room on the second floor because the wood floor in the rooms let you hear every step of the guest in the room above yours, but that is an option. Location: it is not in the center of the main attractions of Monterey, but only a 5 min drive away,; so if you have a vehicle I really recommend you to stay at this hotel.

The staff are always very friendly and helpful. The management is also to be respected as this establishment is very good to everyone who works there, supporting families. Indeed, it feels like a family owned establishment, with everyone having a vested interest in the place.
The rooms are sparklingly clean. Their response to the pandemic is to use ultraviolet light to insure they have thoroughly cleaned.
They recently did an extensive renovation, and the new design is lovely.
The location is great. It is within walking distance of much of Monterey including restaurants and the beach.

Stay and price included continental breakfast and the pool. At no time during the reservation (made via the Best Western call center with an actual person) did the rep say that due to COVID breakfast will not be served nor that the pool is closed. The opposite- I asked and she said everything is included. Breakfast was a paper bag with a banana, water bottle, dry pastry and a bar. Staying at ground floor-a lot of noises came from the upper units. Very disappointing and not recommended.

The only positive thing to say about this motel is that the staff are very nice. The structure is old, with incredibly thin walls so you can hear every noise in the rooms surrounding yours (next door, above, below). This also means that the fairly constant traffic outside will be prominently heard, as well as people walking along the outdoor steps, or any kind of equipment operating. There was a beeping coming from the pool area all night long. The room was sparsely furnished and decorated. The laminate flooring, while surely easier to clean, made the room even louder and far less comfy than even a commercial grade carpeting would have been. The AC unit was very loud. Water pressure was extremely low. The beds were fairly comfortable and the linens were clean. We got little to no rest due to the noise unfortunately and it made for a rough next day. We won't stay here when visiting Monterey again. Unfortunately, it appears that many of the motels/hotels in Monterey are fairly old and likely don't offer much value for the price.

If you're booking on line, it should say the features of that room. If you call directly, the manager is very helpful. And I've gotten the same price as online booking calling directly. If you stay there, the breakfast area is very small. There is outside patio eating but only if the wipe down the outside furniture. Go early to eat! :)
