Stayed Friday and Saturday nights to visit the Monterey area. Right off of Hwy101 and near major cross-town roads. No walkable dining options except fast food. The coast is about 20 minutes away, with quite a few good route options depending where you want to end up. A small outdoor pool and a nice clean hot HOT tub on the... More

Enjoyed our stop over at this location. We were given a nice comfortable room. The room and bathroom were clean and well stocked for towels and toiletries. Clean. Good Service. Good Breakfast. This was our 4th of 6 stops at Best Western Hotels. Liked it and would recommend it others.

Went to be near Monterey . On main roadway but quiet nice interior hallways . Nice large rooms and nice bedding . Great value . Near by restaurants . Right next to McDonald's that has a lot of late night traffic . Some may question parking lot safety but I felt it was ok .

Good experience. Needed more breakfast items. No food places and the dining place that was recommended was a looooong wait for pick up. The ice machine was also not working when I arrived. Parking was very limited.

Great clean hotel at a great price. The neighborhood was a bit rough but found good food nearby and the room was very quiet. There are alot of workers who seem to stay here but not too many families. This is not a negative review, just an observation.

The rooms are clean, staff friendly and it's located within quick easy access to freeways. But it is still quiet. A/C fully functional and complimentary continental breakfast refreshed quickly. Nothing AMAZING, just a nice standard hotel.
