If so, this is it. Screens hanging off windows, no central heat/air - no way to move hot air in a West facing room. Even in Monterey when it's 65 to 70, you can't cool an 80 degree room if you can't get outside air in and vice versa. Breakfast - not your typical BW breakfast: In a corner of the lobby there were 3 tables, 8 chairs, powdered egg circles (slightly burned), eggo type waffles wrapped in saran wrap but good coffee and good apples and pretty Koi. The people were nice, the room was clean and large but whomever made this a BW Plus and rated it five stars is looney tunes.

Thank you for your recent review of our property. I believe you may have been confused about our property as we are a Best Western and not a Best Western Plus property. I am sorry you didn't enjoy the complimentary breakfast. We are limited by what we can prepare because we do not have kitchen facilities but are mandated by Best Western to provide specific items. An inspection of the perimeter of the property by our maintenance department did not locate any loose window screens but thank you for the observation. Windows can be opened and we also provide portable fans to create airflow and cool down the room. Thanks again for taking the time to post your comments regarding your stay.

We are quite happy with our experience in this hotel, the room was comfortable and clean. The staff very friendly. The breakfeast room is a bit short : two poor tables and 6 chairs... and the choice was not as large as in other BW hotels.
The place is a bit far from the center of Monterey but a perfect location to get to Carmel and Big Sur.

We love this hotel. It's an excellent location very close to Hwy 1 & a great jumping off point for Monterey, Pacific Grove, Carmel and Big Sur. It's not luxurious, but is very adequate for a family vacation or business trip. No A/C - but it's not needed at night at this coastal location. We stayed here twice in June, 4 nights each time, and slept with our windows open every night. Absolutely quiet neighborhood. Attractive "oasis" on Fremont Blvd. near the Monterey Fairgrounds. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, great water pressure in the showers, and courteous staff. Each room had a small fridge, microwave & a safe. Excellent, fast & reliable wi-fi. The breakfast was a limited selection of food, but did have decent-tasting hot cooked eggs & also a hot breakfast meat.

We stayed 2 nights in a standard room with a king bed and I asked to have a crib put into the room for my daughter. The room was an odd shape but we made it work for us. It was shaped like a check mark so we put the crib at the far end of the room where it angled so that the light wouldn't bother the baby. There was too much furniture for the size of the room, but again, we made it work. I moved the extra furniture out of the way and it was fine. My one complaint about the room was the lack of air conditioning. I know it is Monterey and the weather is usually cooler but the ceiling fan was not enough. We had to leave our window open which let all of the street noise in,

Breakfast was satisfactory. The eggs were oddly shaped (life mini frisbees) but I think they are meant to be put into the English muffins. They had a choice of muffins, bagels, eng muffins, eggo waffles, eggs/sausage and the other usual hot & cold cereal fare. Not a foodie haven but just right if all you are looking for is a quick and easy breakfast. The eating area, however, is quite small. Either go early or plan on taking breakfast back to your room.

All in all, I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the opposite side of the street, in case you need to keep the window open (since t...

We stayed here for four nights. We had the suite on the main flour, with a King bed and a murphy double bed. We liked that there was a separate room with the king, and plenty of room next to the murphy bed for a rollaway. Plenty of space for our three children, and we had our own room. Also liked that it had two separate televisions! Really like the table and chairs and breakfast nook, so we had a spot to eat breakfast and other snacks. This room with lots of space made all the difference in our trip. We will definitely be back!

As many others have stated this hotel is a great value. Rooms are large and clean. Bed was comfortable, breakfast served was nice. We did not spend a lot of time at the hotel, it is centrally located for easy access all around the Monterey area.

We chose this hotel and this particular Best Western based on the Trip Advisor ratings and the value it presented. The first thing we noticed when we arrived was that there was no parking for guests checking in. We had to drive round to the back of the building only to find that one cannot enter from the rear unless a guest since the elevator requires a room key card! We saw another arriving guest encounter the same perplexing issue. I would highly recommend reserving at least one space for guest check-in parking. Of course, the lack of check-in parking may be due to the fact that the parking lot has a limited number of spaces for guest parking period. The exterior and interior of the hotel were pleasant, the staff friendly and welcoming. We very much liked our king corner room on the second floor overlooking the parking lot because it had a nice view of tree tops and it was quiet (even though located right next to Denny's Restaurant). The room was large and pleasantly appointed, the bed comfortable. As to concerns some have expressed about the lack of air conditioning, we did not find that to be a problem. We simply opened up the windows and enjoyed the cool coastal air. Noise was not an issue with the windows open either.

Here is the one thing that kept me from rating my stay as Excellent -- although the room appeared to be very clean upon arrival, the next morning my husband pulled the nightstand away from the wall looking for an outlet and discovered a discarded hair band and worse the paper wrapping from a cupcake with food still clinging to it. Neither belonged to us. Yuck. This made us question the cleanliness of the room. We left the nightstand pulled out slightly to see if the housekeeping staff would find the items during their next cleaning and I am happy to report that they did, though they left the hair band on the nightstand likely thinking it was ours. We later found an errant jelly bean by the windows (also not ours). I would say that a reminder to staff to move furniture in order to effect a thorough cleaning would be in order. Otherwise, this is an excellent value and pleasant location. We would return and we would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Corner king second or third floor facing the back will be quieter and have nicer views with windows...

Thank you for your review and 4 out of 5 rating of our property. Please accept my sincere apology regarding the cleanliness issue experienced during your stay. I would have apologized in person had you brought the problem to my attention during your stay. Although it is our housekeeping policy to move the furnishing on a daily basis, it can be challenging to do so when we are very busy and still allow guests to check-in on a timely basis. I do appreciate your taking the time to post your comments as this gives me an opportunity to address your concerns.
