I love staying at this location! I've stayed on two separate occasions in two very different rooms. One room was on the top floor and had a vaulted ceiling. The other room was on the bottom floor and was a full suite with a complete kitchen and separate living room area. Both rooms were beautiful, spacious, and comfortable.

Our two bedroom unit was adequate and clean but a little smaller than we had expected and you had to access the second bedroom to get to the bathroom. Ok for a one night stay but could have been tricky for a longer stay. Complementary breakfast was good. Staff could have been friendlier. Well located for whale watching at Monterey...

Although the actual rooms were decent, because there is no AC you must leave the windows open. But you can't because there are no screens. I asked the front desk about this situation and they said they couldn't put in screens until corporate headquarters allowed screens. Absolutely ridiculous. Monterey and Pacific Grove hotels have the affectation that they don't need...

Stayed for 3 nights beginning end of Sept. Nice room with fireplace and kitchenette. The only issue is the number of stairs to get to room. All rooms require going up flight of stairs to get to door, no elevator. This can be difficult with carrying luggage and for someone with any disability. Also, 3 steps going from bed area...

Loved the individual units and very quiet location of this hotel in a residential area yet very close to downtown and coast. Front desk was very helpful. Rooms were large, clean and very comfortable. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed one night on a road trip down the Pacific Coastal highway. It is a very nice quiet hotel in a residential neighbourhood. We were a bit concerned that we would be too warm as they were having a heat wave, but as it got darker it cooled off nicely and we were comfortable. The bedroom was large and...

Stopped here for overnight stay en route down west coast. A bit isolated, but well worth the find. Very scenic and offered great free breakfast. Rooms lovely. Very unusual and very clean. Would spend more time here on next trip. More than you expect from a Best Western.
