4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

The place was very quaint and comfortable and very well cared for. I loved all of the roses and greenery around the place. Our room was upstairs and overlooked the pool. I actually loved the feel of that the way the rooms wrapped around the pool and whirlpool area. It just felt so nice to be there. The bed was exceptionally comfortable and the bathroom sink area was quite lovely. We woke a little late and I noticed most of the breakfast items were gone by the time we got down there but I spoke with the desk and they had people in there refilling everything lickety split. They got right on it and replenished the milk for cereal, the fruit, yogurt, etc as there was another hour of breakfast still left. I would definitely take my famlly back there to stay. It was charming

Nice place and reasonable compared to other places close by. Looked at places around Monterey and Carmel and this place was pretty reasonable for the area. Did not spend too much time at the hotel as we drove to the outlining areas and spent our time taking in the costal sights.

I thuroughly enjoyed my stay at the Best Western, it's in a cute little town and close to restaurants, beach, off site laundry, and Jack in the Box (originally from Cali) so we don't get JITB in the south. The staff was extremely helpful and the other guests were quiet. It's a quaint place with warm cookies in the lobby :)

Very comfortable room. Pet friendly, you won't be smelling the pets that were here before. Very clean rooms annd comfortable beds. I love pillows and they are abundant here and comfy!!! Very well priced for all that you get. The pool and spa are the cleanist I've seen. Very well maintained. I will be coming back.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice, get a room toward the back, they are quieter and away from morning traffic.

Decent price for a last minute get away for us. We got a room with two full beds. Super neat and tidy. Warm decorations. Fridge for drinks and snacks. Loved Virginia at the front desk!!! Welcomed with a smile and she had great suggestions for places to eat. She was even helpful to others that were looking for a place to stay because they were fully booked for the night. I definitely come here again!

We stayed here for just one nite (July 24th) but would stay here again. Very clean, nice hotel with a decent breakfast offering. The surrounding neighborhood looks a little run down but never heard any problems. Staff was very polite and helpful. Definitely a great deal for the price.

Room Tip: Some rooms are right above pool. If you don't want that noise, be sure to ask for a different a...

My daughter and I needed a place to stay while she participated in the State of Ca., Junior Lifeguard camp at Manresa State Beach. We only needed one night, but after a long drive and a long day it was a great place to rest. Wonderful beds with lots of pillows, clean bathroom and even a microwave to make dinner. Definitely would return.
