“Good place to stay in city with reasonable parking fees”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

Room was very nice with fireplace. Very clean and quiet. Parking fee is reasonable at $13 per night. Overall the stay was good and I might stay there again. Be careful of cancellation policies, they are extreme -- not like most other Best Westerns. Day time young lady at the front desk was wonderful and so helpful. She is what made the stay. Evening check-in person was rude. He was doing open mouth gum chewing. Short smart answers. Did not even look at me. He was hard to understand and not helpful. I was worried that that was going to be that way the rest of the staff would be BUT it wasn't. The rest of the staff was wonderful. I think management needs to learn that the front desk staff is what most people have the most interface with and make a guests opinion of the place. Included breakfast food was cold and of lowest quality. Decided to eat out after trying twice.

The hotel is old, but nice. Recently remodeled. They have a wine and cheese hour every evening and the breakfast isn't bad. Fresh plain omelet, fruit, etc. Only a few blocks from Cannery Row. The only problem I see is possibly parking.

Get a room in the back and on the highest floor for quiet. You can hear people walking over head

Room Tip: Get a room in the back building away from the street and on the top floor as you can hear people wal...

We stayed at Best Western Plus Victorian Inn with a Free Night voucher from Best Western. The room on the 3rd floor was excellent with King bed, fireplace, flat screen TV, in-room coffee. The balcony was very small with no view. There was a small fridge but no microwave in the room. The location is good as only 2 blocks from Cannery Row, so very convenient to walk to shops and restaurants. The afternoon wine, cheese & crackers, apple slices was enjoyable. The breakfast was excellent with eggs, sausage, French toast, coffee, juice, yogurt, cereals, toast, muffins, etc. The breakfast room was good size so no problem with the seating. The only negative aspects would be the high price if we had to pay for the room, although it was excellent, but nothing exceptional, and I was unaware of the parking fee of $13 until we checked in, which is ridiculous considering the price for the room. If you don't mind paying a high price for the room, then the good location, afternoon wine with cheese & crackers, and breakfast will give you an enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: 3rd Floor rooms are probably more quiet with no one above you.

We so enjoyed our two day stay here, super friendly staff, wonderful breakfast, and the afternoon cheese and wine was a bonus! We were only blocks from Cannery Row and the aquarium. Our room was very clean, spacious and quiet. We were on the third floor and enjoyed the patio overlooking the courtyard. The fireplace was an unexpected delight. We were celebrating my husbands birthday and we so pleased to find a hand written note accompanying a delightful bottle of wine and yummy chocolates. We highly recommend this location to our friends and family. We will be returning here on our next trip to the coast area. Thank you to all of the staff that made our visit so wonderful.

Room Tip: Rooms away from Foam Street are super quiet

This place is great if you have dogs, you can walk to all the shopping areas, restaurants and bay from here. Dog friendly restaurants like Buba Gumps and Domenico's, some have special menus for dogs. I like thrift stores and was able to walk to lots of them from this location. The continental breakfast was french toast, eggs, sausage,muffins,cereal, fruit/juice and great coffee served in the nice lobby area. They have trays so you can take your food back to your room, which I did because of the dogs. I highly recommend this place even if you dont have dogs, very reasonably priced if you dont have dogs. It is $30 per dog per night which is a good price for the area...I checked.

Nice accommodations close to Cannery Row.
Upper king room includes a small refrigerator, large double-shower/jet tub and fireplace. The room is spacious and clean with a really comfortable bed.
Convenient location and a friendly staff; I'll stay here again if I'm ever back in Monterey...

Had a great time staying here in Monterey for the 1st time. We had a suite on the 1st floor overlooking the main road with a partial view of the sea between the roof line opposite. A 5 minute walk gets you to Cannery Row where we watched sea otters playing and feeding close to the bay edge (how cute are they!). Had no trouble in finding good places to eat, walk up to the road running behind the hotel and turn left or right and you find somewhere; it's that simple.
Also, it was nice to have off road parking (charges apply). The breakfast offer was better than some we were offered elsewhere and had no problem in finding a table to sit at; may be we picked the best time to visit. Overall a lovely place to stay.
By the way if you like birds you'll love watching the hummingbirds getting nectar from the trees in the courtyard; they are sooo tiny but amazing to watch. Added value maybe?

Room Tip: Nice views from 1st floor suites on front road.
