“Best Western Park Crest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Great location for all of Monterey's attractions and the fabulous 17 mile drive along with the quaint town of Carmel close by. Staff on early arrival were very accommodating and we were able to check in before going to the Aquarium. The breakfast room is quite small.

Room Tip: Best Westerns are always good value for money. If you have mobility problems ask for a room on the g...

Good hotel with kind friend staff. Rooms were good size and clean. I didn't not like the old comforter we did not use them. Also the bathroom the hose for the shower head had a sour smell. The pool is nice and they say its heated but 60 degrees outside the pool did not feel heated. Over all a good hotel would defiantly stay again!

We've stayed at this hotel several times over the years for GP races. Clean hotel with great accommodations. Everyone on staff is pleasant and helpful. Nice sized, quality rooms. Right on the strip close to Cannery Row with quick access to major roads and freeways.

We did extensive online research since we wanted to stay in the area, and got the cheapest rate here, but it was a great room. Breakfast can get a bit crowded. The hotel was in a nice location, easy to get to Monterey and Carmel.

I have stayed at various places in Monterey over the years, I very much enjoyed our stay here, I was with my 2 daughters and grandson. The staff was great, even had our room ready an hour early as we arrived an hour and a half early. Room was great, it was quiet. I will stay here again when I go down to Monterey.

We stayed at the Park Crest Inn back in April. My husband was having heart surgery at the hospital nearby. This hotel was five minutes from the hospital. We were warmly welcomed by Esmeralda, the manager. Her warm and professional welcome made me feel so much better with my first time in staying in a motel by myself, especially under stressful circumstances. The rates were amazing for Monterey. The breakfast was good, better than the nicer Best Western down the street. I stayed a total of six days. We hope to go back in better circumstances soon.

The room was clean, not fancy, and appeared to be redone recently. Bed was too soft, but that is a personal preference. Breakfast was basic but good...crowded room. Front desk was very helpful and nice.

HOWEVER...when a place is advertised as nonsmoking, do not allow two men to place 2 chairs within 3 feet of my room door...including a large cigarette butt receptacle...and smoke at ten at night and 7 in the morning...talking too! ANNOYING BEYOND BELIEF! This should have been placed well away from the NONSMOKING rooms.

We were there for one night only and felt it was a mute point to ask the front desk to move the smoking area.
