Nice hotel with very clean and comfortable rooms. The breakfast was nice with a few more options than usual. Close to the beach and most shopping is just across the freeway. Great value for the area. We will stay there again!

My husband works in the area and we have stayed here a total of 2 months on and off. The staff has went above and beyond to make sure our stay is a good one. Its 5 min from Marina State Beach and 5 min from walmart. Beds are comfortable and we get a good night sleep, and the wi fi is always working never slow.

We previously stayed at this Best Western in June 2022 & had a great experience at that time, which is why we chose to return for our visit this time. The room we previously had was downstairs, beautifully remodeled, comfortable & quiet. This time, the area we wanted was blocked due to repaving of the parking lot. We were given an upstairs room, having to go up 2 split-flights, very difficult for us as an older couple. Also, the room was on the opposite side of the hotel, facing the busier parking lot. The room was fine, however, I didn’t feel it was as clean as usual (I did Lysol the bathroom & sinks). It was obvious the shower rod had just been repaired, as there were still holes in the sheet rock from where they moved the rod. The sheet rock residue from the repair was still in the bathtub. Yuk! That means the staff did not clean the bathtub. The breakfast buffet left a lot to be desired. The pre-cooked pancakes in the warmer were rock-hard, the coffee from the coffee machine tasted old, like it needed cleaned out, there was no fresh fruit available. I didn’t feel like we had that experience 5 months before. I think we’ll look to stay elsewhere next time, or at least be sure we get the ground floor room on the opposite side.

Driving from elsewhere after a round at the aquirium came up to this location. It’s great, good walking distance to the state park/beach. Overall a bit quiet the complimentary breakfast was great. The price was really reasonable I felt, will stay here again when Convenient. The room was on the outside facing the cars so felt less closed in. The tile floors are good for the sandy children. The staff were friendly but the front desk a bit standoffish.

We stayed here for a wedding that was taking place across the street at the Sanctuary. Location was prefect for that and also nicely located if you want to go to Marina State Beach. Amenities were as expected for this level hotel. Property was clean and cleaning service was prompt and available if you wanted it. The room was huge and modern. Ours could have used a bit more light - only desk lamp, bedside lights and one tall standing lamp in a corner that was very dim so room was not very bright unless you had the curtains up, which is okay if you don't mind all the people walking by. I liked that the windows open up. Breakfast was okay. The usual eggs, potatoes, waffles, oatmeal, cereal and fruit. Pretty typical of this type of hotel that has included buffet breakfast. The breakfast room did get pretty hectic and busy around the 8am-9am hour. I would say they could look after some things a little more, like our bathroom ceiling had all sorts or orange rust looking spots like there was a leak at some point, which could be painted over, but that didn't really have an effect on the overall comfort of the room. Bed was fine for me, a little firm for my partner. Pillows were lumpy so if you are driving and can bring your own, I would. Easy walk to the beach, bit far out of downtown Monterey. If you have a bike though, there is a very pleasant bike path you can pick up and bike into Monterey. Overall I'd say a decent hotel at a good price for the area. Would stay here again if I needed to be in the Marina area.

I stayed here since the Best Western price seemed reasonable compared to Best Western Monterey prices and I was doing activities in both Monterey and Moss Landing. When I returned to the room on the day after the first night, I found that housekeeping had entered the room despite me having posted a "Do not Disturb" doorknob sign on the outside of the door. A few personal items were missing. I assume they thought they were trash. I advised the front desk. Upon checkout, a front desk person said that they have some new staff. Seems that a new person should know what "Do not Disturb," means. The room was comfortable for sleeping. A couple of items seemed to be broken. A floor lamp would not light and a desk chair would not stay up which made using the desk more difficult. On the two mornings I drove to Monterey, the Hwy. 1 traffic was very slow much of the way which added stress to the trip.

Pros: updated room, headboard with multiple outlets and charging ports, spacious room. Cons: shortcuts clearly taken when updating the room, rusty hinges, unsealed door which meant huge cracks that allowed the bright light from outside to shine inside the whole night, questionable clientele, bathtub drain was incredibly gross and needed a really good cleaning. Honestly, we did feel a little unsafe based on the questionable people just hanging out around the hotel at night. Nothing ever happened, but those “what if” thoughts were still there. Overall if you’re looking for a basic, budget friendly, low maintenance room close to the beach, this would be an okay place. We will not be returning only because there are other hotels closer to Monterey within the same price range that meet our desired needs.

My family and I enjoyed 4 nights at this hotel. The room was simple but nice. The breakfast was decent. The location is walking distance from Marina State Beach so my son was fine that there was no pool. Our overall stay was great.

We stayed here for a quick trip to Monterey for a show. The bathroom had some issues (mold starting in the shower, needs to be finished painting). The metal rods/storage were starting to rust. Found Cheetos under one of the beds from a previous stay. But overall a cute place for a quick stay. Don't think it is worth the $300, but it was in our budget.

This was my first BW stay in quite some time. I must say that the hotel chain has come a long way. I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were clean. Wi-Fi worked great. Beds were very comfortable. Most importantly, the staff was amazing. Specifically, Ron at the front desk. He went over and above to make sure my stay was not only satisfactory but really enjoyable. Great recommendations, hospitality and professionalism.
