We stayed here over the last weekend of July, for our visit to Laguna Seca for the Moto GP. The rooms were a great size, the bed extremely comfortable, and no noise from the road. The rooms were well equipped with coffee making facilities, hairdryer, iron, tv etc. The manageress, Esmeralda, could not have been more helpful during our stay, even going out of her way to lend me her own hairdryer when there was a problem with the one in the room. Breakfast was more than adequate, with everything you needed to fill up ready for your day. Overall, a great place to stay! If we ever return to Monterey/Laguna Seca, this will be where we will stay.

We stayed in Monterey for 1 night Aug of 2012. The hotel was about a miles walk from the aquarium/cannery row. The room was clean and had everything you need (blow dryer, iron/ironing board, coffee maker etc). The room itself needed improvement. The entrance door to the room had a 1/8" gap from the door handle to the bottom of the floor, so you got a draft that came in and the shower head was so high I almost had to stand up on the edge of the shower to wash my hair (and I am 5' 8), good luck if you are short! The continental breakfast was average but it saved $ on going out so you have more $ for a nice dinner on the wharf. The beds were clean and comfortable but seemed smaller then advertised and had plenty of pillows. The walls seemed thin and you could hear people talking and thumping upstairs but not too bothersome. When we checked in and out we had to wait a while before someone showed up, it would have been nice if someone was there so we didn't have to wait. Bottom line: it was ok for 1 night but if you stay longer, you might want to stay somewhere else.

The manager was very friendly and helpful. The 2 rooms we stayed in were very clean and a nice size. The area was also very quiet for sleeping. The breakfast was good, but the breakfast room could be a little larger. It was close to down town Monterey. I would stay there again if and when we return to Monterey.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Best Western Park Crest Inn during our visit to California. The Manager, Esmeralda Frausto, went out of her way to make us feel at home. She recommended affordable places to eat and the State Parks to visit first in order to get a feeling of the area. Topping this off was the offer of home made cookies and candies from her recent visit to Mexico. The hotel was the best price for the area and the staff could not do enough to make you confortable. When in Monterey, this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: Best value in the area. Staff able to recommend and point you to whatever you need.

Nothing special about this hotel. Our rooms had windows overlooking a corridor on ground floor, not very comfortable for privacy. Breakfast area is very small and completely not adapted to the number of guests. Quite expensive finally for the global quality.

Nice, well maintained Best Western in Monterey. My fiance and I had just gotten engaged before our trip to California and this is one of the places we stayed while there. They treated us great, and even hand-made a sign congratulating us on our engagement.

It's walkable to popular places like the Wharf, but we chose to drive so we could check out other places around town. It's also close to Carmel/17 mile drive, which were fantastic.

They just installed new carpeting in all the rooms and everything was clean and tidy. The price was fine, especially for Moneterey. If you are going to this part of California to stay in a hotel all day and night, you are missing the point! All-in-all, a very pleasant stay.

The good news is that it is a Best Western, meaning it has a certain standard. Also it is still possible to walk to downtown Monterey in 20 minutes. The hotel rooms could need some updating. We found the price paid 25% too high and realized that they only charge that much because they are located in Monterey. Would I return? Not to this one - there is another Best Western just a couple of blocks down Munras which I can definitely recommend. Way better bang for your bucks!
