When we booked this hotel, the price was so low for the area, we seriously weren't sure what to expect. We were hoping for clean sheets and towels, anything else would be a bonus. I'm pleased to say this hotel didn't disappoint. We had 2 queen beds. The room was plenty spacious, the sheets and towels were clean, the water...

The reviews had me scared but we went anyway. The price was good for being close to the beach. It was 1/2 mile away. The hotel is older but it was clean and the staff were all very nice. The breakfast was good.

Would like too see breakfast served earlier in am so easier to get to job site on time due to traffic and location from hotel. Would like to have better water pressure and softer pillows. Everything else was good.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. Our breakfast hours are 6am-10am and if you are on the road before that time our guests can arrange for a "Grab N Go" breakfast bag from the desk staff. All Best Western's provide this service. The water pressure is unfortunately out of the hotel's control. Due...

Location is about 10 min drive from Monterey which is well worth it for the price differential. Clean room, comfy beds, very nice staff, great breakfast, coffee all day. Would definitely stay there again.

This is not a very cheap hotel, but it looks and feels like a super cheap motel. I was there for only one night, otherwise it would've been more annoying. Towels and sheets were not very clean, carpet was disgusting.

The rooms are quite modern, stylish and comfortable. We booked a sea view room, which was amazing. Wi-Fi was a struggle in the room ( reception staff was very helpful) and there is a small business centre, so it was ok. The dining room looks great, good choice of food. The hotel charged extra for parking which was a surprise...

Thank you for the review but I believe you have the wrong hotel. We do not have "sea view" rooms and we do not charge for parking. I only post this response so that guests reading our reviews are not mislead by this post. We are located across the street from Marina State Beach but our views are of the...

Basic clean hotel. The room was big enough and clean. The bathroom was small but clean. No refrigerator. Free wifi and parking. They let us check out 45 minutes later. It's very close to highway 101, but the room was quite.

We secured our reservation through Hotwire late in the check in date and got an excellent $64 rate. Room and location were well worth it. Free internet worked well, large rooms, average breakfast (no bananas or granola). Upon leaving in the morning my wife noticed old stains on the sheets that should have been eliminated before using. We would return...
