Monterey Beach Dunes Inn
Ranked #9 of 9 Hotels in Marina
Reviewed 21 February 2014

Nice location right around the corner for the beach. The room was fine. Being picky - the area outside my room was covered with litter.

But the big problem was the internet. I rely on it. It reminded me how far we have come because it was slower than an old dial-up connection. I asked the desk about it. The young lady told me the internet was fine, they had just had somewhere there looking at it and they said it was fine. (Ummmm, how many places have someone there checking something if it was fine?)

My wife and I needed a room near Moss Landing but close to Monterey Bay as well. We also look for hotels with reasonable rates. This Quality Inn rang all our bells although the marine environment has been hard on the exterior of the building.

Front office staff was excellent in handling our booking. Again great service when we re booked to extend our stay.

Breakfasts can be hot or cold and there is a reasonable selection of foods and beverages. The young lady servicing the breakfast area keeps everything well stocked and the eating areas are spotlessly clean. Great to see.

The hotel's location is within easy walking distance of a state beach if you would like to take pictures of birds or just enjoy the sights and sound of the surf.

The hotel is also within easy walking distance of the Kula Ranch restaurant if you are looking for dinner at a bit more upscale location.

Lunch or a less pricey dinner will mean a trip into Marina or Sand City.

Our only grumble is that our room did not have a microwave although it did have a nice fridge.

We would stay again at this Inn and will recommend it to friends.

Nice property in a beautiful coast location. Could not be closer to the great views out into Monterey Bay.

Clean room, well kept up and serviced. Plenty of hot water and a full tub.

Five minutes to plenty of restaurants of all types.

Comfortable bed and VERY quiet. A limited breakfast buffet with biscuits and gravy and decent coffee.

I had a pleasant stay here over the Thanksgiving vacation.
The staff were most helpful and friendly when we inquired about purchasing an upgrade.
This is perfect for those that are budget and value minded.
Surrounded by hotels charging much (MUCH) more, you will find the location to be prime and the accomodations to be clean and adequate. Not delux, not roomy but having everything you will need. Internet was recently upgraded it seems and I had good signal and fast downloads. The complimentary breakfast is up to the task. Cold days are rough as you cant use the outside tables and the breakfast room itself is rather small. People seem to take breakfast back to their room. I have stayed here before and I will be back again.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for the larger front rooms.

Let me start with the good things the list is shorter. Great location right next to the ocean less then a 5 minute walk. Spa was amazing and nice size, kids enjoyed it as well as us parents. Breakfast was good and kept well stocked. Now to the bad. First thing I noticed was how corroded the doors were. When you open the door to the room you are hit with a overwhelming smell of damp mold. Then when you turn on the heat or the AC the smell of mold is even more present. The door from the inside could use a weather strip there's about 1/4 inch opening. At night it would get cold, but since we didn't want more of a mold smell we didn't turn on the heat. We asked for a extra blanket and were told they didn't have one to give us. The walls are very thin. We were right next to the spa so we could hear everything and everyone. Someone else I noticed posted pictured and that is dead on how our room was also.

Fine price, but tiny room - even with a king bed. Pretty clean, but needs some attention - windows water stained, door handle is salt weathered, old-school gold light fixtures, holey window curtain, however; nice shower and water pressure!

Nice place, great location, terrific GM, clean.

Great on the budget, better than expected. Breakfast area and menu limited and cramped. No pool, but steaming spa. Too bad it had not yet heated up.

Lot of cigarette butts scattered about despite numerous signs indicating smoking only permitted in designated areas.

Room clean but dated. Cramped quarters with few amenities.

Sheets were fresh and pillows ok, we were so tired we would have slept on a bed of nails.

Great landscaping, lots of succulents and greenery.

The less than flattering comments above are not a condemnation, but rather a disclosure so you can have a feel of what to expect.

We would not hesitate to stay here again next time we pass through this way. You, too, should give it a try.
