“Affordable Monterey, Dog Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

This is a reasonable room rate, especially if you are travelling with your dog. The pool has been converted to a grassy dog run. The location is convenient for getting around the peninsula, and Bill, the innkeeper, is friendly and fun. It's basic accomodations, nothing fancy, but I would recommend it if you don't want to spent alot on your room. The Black Bear Diner, a delicious option for breakfast, is only a few blocks away, and there is a good local produce mart across the street. I have stayed in a charming B&B in Pacific Grove, but it's isolated and you have to drive to get any food. So it's more convenient at this Best Western.

Room Tip: All the rooms are the same.

Monterey can be an very expensive place to stay, especially in the summer. Thankfully, there are value-priced places like the Ramona Inn to make staying in the area possible for the budget conscious traveler.

Is this the nicest hotel you will ever stay in? I hope not. But it is clean, quiet, and the manager is one of friendliest and most helpful you'll ever come across. It's located near the highway, on a commercial strip, but you'll need to drive to visit any of the attractions the Peninsula has to offer.

Are there better places to stay in Monterey? Of course! But by staying at this property we saved 40% a night over the next viable option. For that kind of value, it would be unfair to complain.

The hotel was average. The room seemed to be clean, but it smelled of humidity. Only 5 seats in the breakfast room. You need to take your car to get around. It was okay for one night but I'm not sure I would be going back.

On our Southwest tour with final destination San Francisco, we stayed one night at the BW Ramona Inn in Monterey. Above all we got an extremely friendly welcome by the Manager. He gave us a lot of information for restaurants and sightseeing and he made our first contact with this place an enjoyable one. The room was OK. Quite spacious and clean and quiet. Good complimentary breakfast. We liked this place and should we return to Monterey, the BW Ramona Inn will again be our first choice! For dinner we went to an outstanding restaurant called "The Sardine Factory". Great setting, excellent food and top service.

We look for clean, comfortable, value priced places to stay in safe areas. This one fits the bill very well. Bill was really accomdating at check-in, letting us check out the room before we did anything. It's an older BW, but spotlessly clean and everything worked. He gave us some great tips for traveling on the rest of our vacation and directed us to the Black Bear Diner just down the street for a really good family style meal at reasonable prices. If you're looking for a 5 Star place with Valet parking and all the rest, this isn't it, but if you want a clean, comfortable place run by folks who seem to care and charge reasonable prices, stay with Bill at this BW.

The hotel is ok for a 1 night stay, but I wouldn’t go longer than that. The manager is a real nice guy and delivered excellent customer service. However, the hotel itself is very dated and dumpy. The TV/Satellite system that they use is very complex and the remote control doesn’t work properly for it. I think you need a degree to operate the thing. The ice machine was broken, which was a bummer since we were needing to fill our ice chest with perishables and sodas. Breakfast is more like a morning snack. The breakfast sitting room is very small with only a couple of tables to sit at.

The location of the hotel is actually decent. It’s about 1.5 miles back to the highway. However, there are 3 Best Western properties on the street along that stretch. So you really have to pay attention to which one you turn into. There’s a 7-11 across the street, a CVS down the road and a couple of restaurants nearby. Neighborhood is safe, but not much to see other than chain hotels/motels.

If I was just passing through, this hotel would be fine for that. If I wanted to spend more time in Monterey, I’d definitely look for something else.
