    « Convenient to Wharf »

    We had a fishing trip for the day after Thanksgiving and chose this hotel becaue it was close to the Wharf in Monterey. Very nice property, with large rooms. No ocean viw, but very convenient to everything.

    « The average BW »

    After staying at the BW black oak plus in Paso Robles, I feel this one is just OK. Don't get me wrong. It has everything that it should have. Jose and Meg at the front desk carry a smile and are very friendly and helpful. Pro: ample parking spaces underground. Hot breakfast (get there early to avoid crowd) Clean room Convenient location (walking distance to restaurant and Trader Joe's) Con: I could hear every step from the floor above me. It could be annoying for some ppl but I'm used to the noises from my kids. Not quite enough amenities (for ex, the other BW+ I stayed at offered hot water and coffee 24/7 in the lobby. In the morning, they also have a grab and go area filled with granola bars and water bottles. They also have complimentary water bottles in the room but not here. Hot water is always plus) As the other reviews indicated, no AC here. Only ceiling fan and heat. Not a problem when it's freezing outside. Bottom line, it's good and convenient for my family w kids for the price paid. I would still recommend them.

    « Nice Location, near Freeway. »

    Although not a short walking distance to the wharf and Cannery Row, the location was ideal for us. It only took a few minutes to drive to the wharf and park the car. Parking is not free in that area. I actually found meter parking a better bargain a few blocks up. The room was clean and average; nothing spectacular. The walls are not soundproof, we could hear the people next door (on both sides) in the evening. The breakfast was the usual fare found at most Best Western hotels. The eating area, though, was a bit small and cramped. The staff was very friendly. The hotel was also a good location if you want to take a trip to Carmel which we did.

    Very friendly helpful staff during our stay, The buffet hot breakfast was very good with more choices than we expected. The room was very clean, the bed was very comfortable. The hotel is located close to many attractions which is convenient. Compared to other hotels in the area this one was an excellent value. We will definitely stay there again.

    Hotel was clean, great appearance, staff pleasant, parking available. Breakfast was great. Location great in relations to sites to see within the city. Greatest asset is the staff who were more that willing to provide information on things to do and help with any needs.

    « Good location for walking downtown »

    If you want to just park and walk around or use public transportation this hotel is in a great location. Our room was spacious, clean and had a small balcony. Hotel has a good breakfast with the only drawback being the small breakfast room, at least during our stay it was crowded. The staff provided us with a map and walking directions for getting downtown and to the wharf. Overall happy with our stay would come back and stay here again.

    « Best Western Plus- Abrego Ave. »

    When we come to Monterey with our son, this is where we usually stay. We have always had a pleasant experience, perhaps because we never stayed on the first floor. If you stay here i would suggest you try to stay on any other floor or at least not one facing the entrance. We were kept up all night with the noise of people coming and going. Other than that, the stay was pleasant as usual.

    « Perfect place to stay »

    We stayed in this hotel a month ago. Arrived tierd after 15-hours flight to SF and direct drive to Monterey. Front desk stuff was very welcomed and made the efforts to provide us a room even before formal check-in time. Very nice and warm guest acceptance! It's nice, clean hotel with plenty parking space. Close to the Fisherman's Warf (actually walking distance) and it's very short drive to the main street. We've got a family suite with small balcony, free internet. It was very enjoyable stay (start of 3-weeks family vacation)!

    « Nice stay »

    The location is not waterfront, but the downtown and Old Fisherman's Wharf were very easily accessible by foot. There's free parking underneath the hotel too! I was surprised by how large the room was. We had a little sitting area in addition to the bed. There was also a minifridge available. There was even a little balcony overlooking the driveway entrance into the hotel. The only bummer was that they were only able to extend our check out to noon because the hotel was full for the next night.

    « Perfect Stay »

    My parents, husband and I stayed here last week and it is a great hotel in every way. Less than 5 mins from the Main Street for bars, shops & restaurants and only 10 mins walk to the harbour to see the Sea lions & try some fabulous seafood chowder. Staff were lovely and friendly providing maps and local info. Our 2 rooms were really spacious, clean & had balcony's to sit on in the evening to watch the world go by while having a night cap. Free & ample parking along with breakfast of fresh waffles so another major plus for us. We had a lot of baggage as on a 3 week vacation so delighted to find trolleys at the door to use for transporting our luggage to our rooms. Everything was made easy and simple. Stress free. Thank you Best Western Monterey

    This is a very nice and clean hotel that is reasonable close to most attractions. The room was clean and comfortable, and the free breakfast was very good. There is no A/C, so if it is hot outside be forewarned. While we were there for two nights and three days the temperature never exceeded 65, so there was no problem. I would stay here again.

    « Comfort a few blocks from Fisherman's Wharf »

    This BW Plus hotel is a couple of blocks from downtown Monterey so the location is good. Rooms are spacious and luxurious, and quiet as well. We thought the traffic on the street would be a problem noise-wise but with the sliding balcony door shut, there was no problem at all. Beds were super. Highly recommended.

    « Very clean and safe property »

    We stayed at this hotel October 7-11, 2016. Our room was very large, located on the first floor at the end of the hallway. I would recommend asking for a second floor room, as we could hear the guests above us walking around starting at 6AM every day we were there. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. We had our own car so it was very nice to have an on site parking garage with no extra charge. The breakfast was continental, and the breakfast room was small but no real complaints there. It was convenient for us to downtown Monterrey walking, but would be quite a walk to Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf. We had a car so it was very convenient. If you drive to Cannery Row or Fisherman's Wharf, it is very hard to find parking and the costs can add up. Parking is only free downtown Monterrey. We were a 10 minute drive to the airport which was very easy to get in and out of. The area seemed very safe, and the rates were reasonable compared to other hotels in the area. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Monterrey and not wanting to pay the high rates in the Cannery Row area.

    « An excellent find »

    We didn't have a reservation for that night. We were pleasantly surprised. It was a great find. It was an excellent price. The area was convenient. If we again choose to stay in Monterey, we would choose this hotel.

    « Enjoyable three nights. »

    I visited with my wife for three nights. The king bedroom was large, clean, and comfortable with a TV, desk, a seating area, and very adequate drawer space. The bathroom has a shower only. The staff was quite helpful always, with directions, discounted aquarium tickets, cleaning room at a certain time, etc. The hotel price was decent in comparison to other quotes we received. I booked through Booking.com, but would not do so again as that company has a cancellation policy of 3 days rather than one day. Also, the hotel can be noisy as we heard the people above us, the tv next door through the wall, and guests in the hall. Breakfast was included with waffles, eggs and sausage, packaged cereals, pastries, yogurts, some fruit, coffee, and juice. I would say it is a pretty high carb fare and I would have liked to see more fresh fruit and granola. The sweetened granola they provided was only for a topping, although the woman server was willing to take the container and fill a bowl for me every morning. Some good healthy granola and a bit more fruit for visitors would be welcome. All in all, there is little to complain about, as the hotel is reasonably priced, far enough away from the main drag to be quieter, and the staff is friendly and efficient.

    « Good Enough »

    We stayed here for three nights. We arrived very early in the afternoon and were able to check in. The staff member at the desk was very friendly and helpful with recommendations. The room was very large but a bit dated. That's okay as it was clean. The room did not have air conditioning and was hot at night. We did open the slider and the ceiling fan was on. The bed was a little firm for my liking. The breakfast room was very small and often crowded. The breakfast was your standard fare but lukewarm as someone else said. The location is great. You can walk to Fisherman's Wharf but it is approximately 20 minutes away and Cannery Row at least 30-40 minutes away but we found lots of open spaces close to that area. There is a laundromat very close by if you need to get some laundry done. Overall for the price we paid, it was a good hotel base for the days we were there. You can buy a two day aquarium ticket here for $39 instead of the $49 they charge at the aquarium so good deal. Free covered parking included.

    « Very Nice Place to Stay »

    Decor was very nice and so was the staff; price was about right for the quality of the room and other amenities, but the BW gift card helped too; hot/cold breakfast items were better than other hotels; location was convenient for downtown attractions, but too far away from aquarium unless you enjoy long walks; overall a nice place to stay

    The hotel staff was very pleasant and well helpful. Our room was a little dated but very nice and clean. Our only complaint would be that the continental breakfast had limited items available, and was not hot enough.

    « Overall a 9 »

    Amazingly pleasant and helpful staff, all shifts. Room and bathroom were spotless, good quality television set. Could hear persons talking in room next door, not loud so as to understand what was being said but noticeable. The bed was comfortable, not super comfortable but was acceptable. I think that powdered eggs are use for the breakfast scrambled eggs, seriously tasteless, the rest of the items served were basic and satisfactory. Location was perfect, easy walking distance to numerous restaurants and Fisherman's Wharf. Room didn't face the main street was on the 3rd floor and at the end of the passage away from the elevators and drink/ice machines, provided a quiet refuge with a sliding door that could be opened for fresh air. Would definitely stay there again.

    « Good location, but that's it »

    We stayed at this hotel in order to use points through Best Western. The location is good and within a 2 mile walk of Cannery Row. The room itself was very dated and had a very musty smell. The mattresses were very thin and clearly very old. This hotel is in need of some major updates. The walls are thin and the hotel is noisy.

    « Big rooms, good value. »

    Spent Labor Day weekend there with wife and two teenaged boys. Most Monterey hotels are overpriced and this one is no exception but Room (207) was clean and surprisingly large. Location made for a nice HQ. We had the mall three minute drive away for movies, and both downtown and Cannery Row are walking distance (15-20 minutes based on pace). Saved a bunch on parking, too. Breakfast room cramped and bed was not great, but we'd stay here again.

    Fantastic staff, especially Jose. Spotless and convenient. I'm handicapped with a service dog and they couldn't have been more gracious. They don't allow pets, however, so honor their policy. Nice parking garage and a small pool and spa.

    Stayed 3 nights for a mini-family vacation. Very nice hotel, with an excellent location. A couple of minutes away from the Downtown area and Cannery Row. All the good restaurants and entertainment are in those areas. Also close by to rent bikes for a ride along the beach.

    We stayed here in August and found a very well run hotel. The room was clean,spacious and quiet. The breakfast was great and the staff were very helpful. We walked into Monterey and down to Fishermans wharf . Lots to do around the area and it was lovely watching the sea lions etc in the bay.

    We arrived at the hotel on 28th April 2016 and stayed for one night. On arrival we were greeted by a friendly and helpful receptionist. We had a lovely first floor room which was clean, spacious and comfortable. A reasonable price per night with excellent breakfast included. Would we stay there again? definitely! A good location for Fisherman's Wharf and don't forget to visit the Aquarium, it is out of this world!

    « Pleasantly Surprised »

    We booked here because the reviews were good and the price was over half compared to Cannery Row (which was where we were trying to book). We've never stayed at a Best Western before and usually never stay at anything below a 3 star rating, so we were a little skeptical at first. There's no air conditioning, which scared me at first, but we went in August and the room wasn't too hot to begin with. We had a slider that let air in and they had an extra fan to help with the temperature. We have two members in our family that overheat easily and no issues without the A/C. This hotel is not far from the free Trolley stations. There's one by Peet's Coffee at the transit center and one closer to the Wharf by the parking garage. We didn't pay for parking the whole week and it was great. We went with an 8 year old, a 7 year old, and a 8 month old in a carrier. We walked without a stroller. And did I mention we got by without paying for parking? The breakfast was good. Eggs, Sausage, Muffins, Oatmeal, Cereal, a Waffle station, and some bread and fruit. It was good enough to feed us for most of the mornings (which again saves our family a minimum of $25 each morning). The pool and hot tub were great. The pool is only 5 1/2 feet which was great for our kids. The hot tub is really close to the pool, so we could watch our swimmers from the hot tub. The front desk always helped us out when asked and we never had any issues. Housekeeping was great and we never had a problem. Overall, if you are a family (or anyone) looking to get away, but on a budget, this is the place. There's enough close by to drive to, if you wanted, or quite a bit to walk to. I would recommend this to anyone looking in this area. The free trolley was wonderful. The hotel also has free parking (most of the other hotels were $10-$27 a day). I was pleasantly surprised and will add Best Westerns to my search list when going on our next vacation! By the way, there's an excellent Paris Bakery in between this hotel and the Wharf, which I wished we would have stopped at sooner! But I'll leave that for their review.

    « Just OK »

    Our last minute one night stay was for a family of 4. The rooms need updating, but they are clean and large. We were on the first floor, and were woken up at 6am by the garbage collectors outside. Breakfast was included, but the food choices are not good - so I skipped breakfast. For a rate of $279/night, I would have expected more. Not great, but not awful either.

    « Clean and safe »

    Took a road trip down Pacifica Highway with pre-arranged hotels. It was hard finding a hotel in July. This Best Western is not close to the water, but it is clean and safe. Staff was friendly. Buy the aquarium tickets there and save $10 per person!

    « Mediocre Monterey Hotel »

    We had only planned to stay at this hotel for 2 nights. We found ourselves in Big Sur in the middle of the fire and decided to shorten our stay there. While this hotel was able to add a night to our stay at the last minute, we had to switch rooms after the first night. Our 2nd room was on the first floor just doors away from the noisy street and lobby. The hotel would not accommodate our request to move to a quieter room. Breakfast was average - the standard cereal/muffin choices and poor quality eggs and sausage. The breakfast room is far too small to service such a large number of guests. The hotel only staffed one person to restock items during breakfast, and she was constantly scurrying from station to station. Every morning of our stay I had to wait for creamer, milk, bananas, and other items to be restocked. Overall, this hotel suited our need to be close to downtown, but I wish we would have stayed elsewhere.

    « Very good hotel for Monterey »

    Hotel is out of main city centre but easy to walk to the beach/pier - 10 minutes. Hotel room was excellent size for family of 4. Expensive , like all hotels in Monterey at this time. Breakfast is average, but OK We used the pool and Jacuzzi - very warm / hot , small but good.

    « Ok hotel, old, bad breakfast »

    Our quick stay was mostly ok for a family of 4. The rooms are clean but on the old side. Our room was close to the Libby so it was very noisy until about midnight. Get a room on other floors if possible. We asked for a corkscrew and they said they only had one for the entire hotel... not very impressive. The breakfast is very, very unsatisfying. The breakfast room is very small and food choices are poor and unhealthy. I mean were in fruit paradise, can we get over the orange and apple thing please. It's 2016 and I felt like this was a 1961 breakfast. Frankly, I have to say, it was not horrible but I will definitely try another place if I come back.

    The staff were great, the room was very large, clean and provided a nice breakfast assortment. We did not have reservations and had to drive around looking for what was available, after seeing several other hotels, this one was the nicest and cleanest around. They provided the room needed with two queen beds.

    Room 311 was amazing. Quiet, immaculate, beautiful...just begin to describe our two night stay in mid-July. Check-in was quick and efficient. Underground parking (two levels) is excellent. Elevator access to all floors of the hotel. Breakfast was wonderfu; the attendants were "spot on." Eggs, sausage, waffles, fruit....coffee, juice were all bountiful. When leaving our room--I mentioned to a member of housekeeping that we were leaving our room (so, she knew it was ready to clean). I had a short conversation with her--she proudly proclaimed she had worked at this hotel for 25 years. What a wonderful tribute to the type of hotel Best Western Plus Monterey Inn is...thank you for a wonderful stay.

    « Good Location, Great Staff »

    We stayed here for a family trip at the end of June before heading to Yosemite. The Inn was clean, priced well for the area. It isn't near the bay or water but close enough for a 10 minute walk into downtown for some good restaurants. There is a Trader Joe's within a 5 min walk. Most importantly the staff was fantastic. They were helpful and honest about the area. They didn't steer us towards over priced, touristy area when we asked for something off the beaten path. We had one problem with a family above us that were re-enacting American Ninja Warrior in their room at 1030 pm. One call to the front desk and it was stopped, in less than 3 minutes!! Bravo!! Pool and pool area was small but clean and they even had a nice little hot tub. We got some finger food and wine from Trader Joe's and had a relaxing meal by the pool! I would definitely stay here again if we went back to Monterey, but wasn't thrilled with Monterey on the whole.

    « Good Enough »

    We appreciated the help the front desk clerk gave us when we asked how to get to the aquarium and a couple of other places. When she found out we were walking she was kind enough to suggest additional places to go. While it was clean, the hotel felt 'dated' - the pillows were a bit on the too full/firm side - some air conditioning would have been nice, but in general it was fine. On another trip we would probably try to stay closer to the water.

    « Not worth the high price »

    We got a double King suite and it was just 2 rooms with the door inbetween taken out. We would have been better off getting 2 rooms since we would have at least had to bathrooms instead of the overly small one we got. The TVs were placed at an angle and distance that made viewing difficult.

    « Great weekend stay at GW Monterey Inn »

    I had previously stayed at another Best Western in San Diego and really enjoyed it, so I decided to book again while staying in Monterey Bay and found it affordable and comfortable. I am so glad I did, again I was pleased with the great service, friendly staff and close proximity to all the attractions I planned to visit. This time around I took advantage of the continental breakfast both Sat & Sun mornings. It was a great way to save money and enjoy a delicious light but filling meal. There was sausage, eggs, oatmeal, cold cereal, waffles, fruit, bagels, toast, donuts a variety of coffee and juice and the next morning instead of sausage there was bacon. At night after we came in from sightseeing we grabbed some nice hot tea and coffee that was always available in the lobby and took up to our room to relax and enjoy. We purchased our aquarium tickets here and that saved us from the long line there, so glad I did! Bed was so soft and comfy I sleep great, and I really enjoyed our spacious room on the 2nd floor. I will stay here again next time we come to town.

    We have been using this motel for over 15 years for visits to Monterey. It is a good value and amenities have been improved through the years. This year they finally changed the thermostat control to a more modern type that can be set to a temperature. The underground parking is a real plus during winter rains. Also location is near the center of activities.

    « Good hotel at a good price in a nice town »

    We stopped for two nights as part of our West Coast Ocean road trip and this hotel was at a convenient stopping off point in Monterey and at the cheaper end of the scale. We found it to be better than an average score of three but because of its location on the main road and a little further out than other hotels, probably not quite a score of four. However, the room was nice, all the staff very helpful and friendly and the small pool a nice extra (although it was full of kids when I tried to use it!) The continental breakfast was just ok, but the room it was served in was small and dingy. If we returned to Monterey we would have no hesitation in staying there again.

    « Never again »

    We stayed here for 3 nights to explore the Monterey area. I see this hotel gets pretty good ratings from other travellers but not me I'm afraid. But, to be fair, first the good stuff. Free covered parking. Good size room with all the amenities one would expect. Included breakfast with usual BW fare. BUT beware when the hotel is full as it was for a reggae festival and Memorial Day weekend when we happened to be there. The walls are not well insulated so you may have the pleasure, as I did, of listening to your neighbours talking till 2.30am plus, as we were above the Lobby, people checking in late and slamming car doors and talking loudly. Also the room doors bang hard making your whole room shake. Guests did not seem bothered about closing doors quietly between midnight and 7 am. Likewise the hallways are very echoey and guests talk loudly in the corridors and their children try out their voices to hear the echoes. This hotel really needs to a) change its door locks to soft close and b) introduce a guest courtesy policy requesting guests to close doors quietly and keep voices down in the hallways between 10pm and 7am. Also when the hotel is full you may find it difficult to find somewhere to sit in the small breakfast room. To be fair to the hotel, when I complained about the noise on the first night they did move us to a quieter room but it didn't make a big difference. We weren't told about the pool until I asked about it at checkout. I chose this hotel based on price and location as everything in Monterey is expensive but I wish I had looked more widely at hotels which may not be on the main booking sites as there seemed to be plenty of alternatives.

I consider the room an outstanding value, especially considering this is Monterey, CA. In addition, the location of the hotel was almost dead-center in Monterey and only a short drive to Fisherman's Wharf, the Aquarium, and a huge selection/variety of restaurants.

    « OK Staying Experience »

    The guest room is good. ( We reserved King bed room for two ). It's not luxury , yet practical. Breakfast included with minimum acceptable .... However , the location is good even it is not that close by the bay. It only 5 mins to downtown central shopping street and 15 mins to Fisherman Wharf . So it's very easy to find good dining restaurant no matter downtown or by the bay.

    « Excellent value, very comfortable hotel, good location »

    Location: good, it's about a 10 min walk to the main street with restaurants etc but recommend driving, as well as to the coast line. A bit dodgy walking around the street at night. Safety: good, see above comment. Comfort: excellent. A very very big room and very quiet, overlooking a quiet area of the neighbourhood, and you couldn't hear any neighbours either. Facilities: excellent. A very comprehensive breakfast is included with in the room. There's a very small pool, nothing to write about, and is always full of kids. Plenty of car space available. Hospitality: very good.

    « Large room »

    We booked a King sized bed and for some reason got given a room with wheelchair access which we certainly did not request. But the room and bed were large and comfortable and the bathroom super large. Everything we needed. Only criticism on the room was the paper thin walls such that we could hear people in rooms around us. Breakfast room was small but we had no problems getting a seat and the breakfast provided was good , if pretty standard fare. The walk into the town centre was not insignificant but we enjoy a walk before and after meals so it suited us.

    « Best of the Best Western that I have stayed at. »

    This was the best of the Best Westerns I have ever stayed at of about 12-15 different Best Westerns. It is located within walking distance of Cannery Row & the Monterey Bay Aquarium and many restaurants. Rooms were clean and had plenty of underground parking. The staff was very helpful on directing us to local events.

    « This is a very nice place to stay. »

    This Inn is VERY nice. Everyone we came into contact with was friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and updated. The breakfast was really good and there were many options to chose from. It was also nice that when walking in from the cold there was coffee options available right inside the lobby door. We walked everywhere we went which saved us from having to find and pay for parking elsewhere. There are lots of eating places close by. The teens that were with us loved that they could walk to the beach and then come back to use the pool and hot tub. Everyone in our "group" enjoyed their stay here.

    « Suite was perfect for our family »

    We were initially booked at another inn that turned out not to be so child friendly, so we quickly had to find another place to stay with a suite. This hotel was perfect, there were two rooms, both had king beds. There were sliding glass doors in each room (one just to a faux balcony), but the other one had a deck with a table and chairs outside. Overall the room was great for our family and very close to Fisherman's Wharf. Breakfast was your typical BW fare (waffles, eggs, sausage, cereal and yogurt). Also, if you stay here you can buy 2 day tickets to the Aquarium for the price of one day. It's not always easy to find a decent 2 bedroom suite, so we would definitely stay here again!

    « Best Western Plus with Kids »

    I'm usually traveling with my two sons, ages 10 and 7, so my review is slanted towards an experience with kids. We booked a room with two queen beds and the size was nice. Definitely not too cramped like a lot of rooms with two queens. It was nice that the sink area was outside of the bathroom, much more convenient for getting ready. Our room was very close to the elevator but noise was minimal. Breakfast was fine, nothing fancy but the kids got a good meal out of it. Cereals, waffles, scrambled eggs, bacon/sausages and pastries, with juices and coffee and tea. I think the best thing for the kids was the pool. We traveled mid April, the days were overcast and temps were around 62, but the pool was heated really well. It was like a warm bath so no problems with swimming. The hot tub was nice too, very hot! I read some reviews that said parking was a tight squeeze, but I found it fine, I have an average-sized car and it wasn't difficult at all. Overall, with the location (less than 5 mins drive to Cannery Row) amenities and super warm swimming pool, I would recommend this hotel to families visiting Monterey.

    The general manager, Diane, helped me book a group reservation for nine rooms to be used during our bicycle trip from San Francisco to Santa Barbara. Everything went exactly as planned.

    « Best Western + Monterey Inn »

    As stated on numerous other reviews the hotel has paper thin walls, making it difficult to get a good night sleep and the beds were extremely uncomfortable. The hotel was clean and the service was good and the complimentary breakfast was good. If none of the other hotels are available I would stay there again, but for almost 200 a night you would expect a better bed and some better insulated walls to lessen the sound of the other guest in the hotel.

    We will be staying at this place when we return to visit in the future. Lovely room, very clean, comfortable bed and pillows! Breakfast was satisfying and hot, great coffee. There is a Chinese restaurant (Great Wall Chinese Restaurant), which within walking distance, and the food was nothing short of delicious! There was also a Mexican restaurant (El Palomar), Denny's and Jack-in-the-Box, within walking distance, if that is what you prefer. This hotel was perfect for us since they offered a two-day pass to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

    We spent a night here. Room was okay ... nothing special. We woke up early the next morning to the power being out. That made things a bit difficult.

    « Great experience for family travel »

    The kids and I really enjoyed our 4 night stay at the hotel. Great walking to downtown restaurants, market, museum, etc. So glad we booked the king suite. Rooms were spacious and clean. Lots of electrical outlets for our devices. Balcony on top floor king suite was an added unexpected bonus. Room at back of hotel was quiet for sleeping. Internet/wireless was fantastic the entire time and easy to sign on to. Staff was friendly, kind, helpful. Only "negative" thing I could say is this: At first we were disappointed that there was no microwave in the room but professional and helpful staff let us know right away that we could come use the microwave in the breakfast area for our nightly popcorn needs. It was a fun little nightly activity for the kids. My only wish would be that there was ability to order movies in the room. Great hotel.

    « Nice room, nice price, underwhelming breakfast »

    The Best Western Plus, Monterey had a large, comfortable room, free underground parking and was reasonably priced. But we were underwhelmed by the breakfast. We've stayed at a dozen Best Westerns over the past year, some ?regular? and some ?Pluses.? The breakfast was here average, like a ?regular? Best Western, it did not have the little extras we've seen at other Best Western Plus properties.

Motel provided a bar to secure the slider at night, but it would have been nice to have a bar that was a tad bit shorter so we could safely keep the slider open a few inches for fresh air at night. (We were on a ground floor room).

    Stayed with my mother for three nights. The first night we found it rather difficult to sleep as every step and word could easily heard from our neighbours' room... Walls and floor very thin.

Staff was avarege: sometimes receptionist didn't greet us, seemed uninterested... At good walking distance from city center.

    As a Platinum Members of Best Western Rewards, we stay at many Best Western Hotels, this one is in the top layer. We normally stay in another Best Western Hotel in Monterey, this one is better. A major complaint of "free breakfasts" is the poor selection and quality, this one is one of the best. It is located close to the major attractions, parking is very secure, in an underground area, with lift to the hotel. Recommended.

    « A sweet spot in Monterey »

    I have stay at many Best Westerns and I'm always on the lookout for new places to visit. I've stayed at the other BW in the area but haven't been to this one. I'm glad I was able to get the chance as it was worth the drive. Most of my travel is for business so my review will be different than if I was traveling with family. I was able to book the corner room with a larger area, king size bed, and fireplace. As this was January the fireplace was nice and I can't wait to come back with the wife, she'll love that touch. The rooms are well kept and clean. The wall was a little thin or the neighbors were just loud, could have been both. Breakfast items were good and plenty to choose from, wasn't just the smaller breakfast that you get at some of the BWs. Parking is on the backside and under the hotel, you just need to be careful when pulling in, a little tight on the spacing. Staff are very accommodating and helping. I will be back to this one for sure come summer time. Thanks for a good nights sleep.

The room was wonderful and the beds comfortable. Breakfast consisted of many choices from waffles, eggs, cereal, fruit, coffee, tea and juices. But, more then anything, the place was beautiful! I stayed in Rancho Cordova a while back and I was so disappointed in the attitude of one of the staff, I almost cancelled my reservation. Other staff members made up for this guys actions. Rancho Cordova was just of ugly on the outside and lobby.

    Sorry to say this Best Western, but you need to spend some money on this building. The staff were great and the location is ideal to walk to downtown and the pier. We were on the second floor and were delighted to be at the back of the building. The room was large and the bed was great. We could hear every step the guest in the room above took. The guy in room next to us had a good sleep but kept us awake with his snoring. Insulation in the walls and ceilings would help. We just could not recommend this hotel based on the noise levels between the rooms.

    We spent 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay overall. The staff was very helpful, the breakfast was good and the location was perfect for us: we like to stay away from the really touristy parts of areas we visit, preferring instead to walk to destinations we want to visit, whenever possible. The only problem was the noise we experienced both nights of our stay: First with the heavy footsteps of the occupants above us, then the next night at 2 a.m. with the occupant next door talking on the phone for about 45 min.: We could hear almost every word he uttered even though he seemed to be talking in a normal and monotonous voice. It was very frustrating! Monterey is such an absolutely lovely and interesting place to visit and the Best Western is very inviting and well located.

    « Good hotel although a bit pricey »

    We were looking for a nice hotel that was close to the major attractions and reasonably priced. Unfortunately prices in Monterey are relatively high compared to other major U.S. cities. But it is a prime destination so they can charge more. You might be able to save more by going to motel row further up the road but then you are moving even further away from the city center. As for the hotel, the rooms were relatively large and clean. The lobby was well maintained and they offer free parking. The staff was friendly and happy to answer any questions. They provide a free breakfast that provides most cold items you would want plus you can make waffles or get eggs and bacon as well. The hotel is located at the southern end of the cannery row/wharf area. Too far to walk so a car is recommended to visit places in the peninsula. The cannery/wharf area is not that big with limited street parking so you wind up paying for parking in the garages. The weekend tends to get crowded with cars and tourists so it it better if you park once and walk around rather than driving. We enjoyed our stay at the BW Montery Inn and would recommend it.

The room was immaculate, spacious, all equipment was in working order. The room was lovely. I enjoyed my stay immensely.

    « Nice rooms- NO AC! »

    I travel extensively on business, staying in hotels an average of 1-2 weeks every month. Normally when I work in this area I stay at a different BW property. Thought it would be nice to stay in Monterey proper. Expensive rate, NO Air Conditioning. Had to leave windows open which meant an early wake up due to traffic outside on one of the city's busiest streets. My advice: Find somewhere better to stay.

    « A great place to stay in Monterey. »

    We have stayed at the Best Western Monterey Inn several times over the years. We have always been completely satisfied. It is close enough to Alvarado Street and Fisherman's Wharf to easily walk, without the congestion of actually staying downtown. As with other Best Western Plus hotels we've visited, the accommodations are very nice. We won't stay anywhere else when we visit Monterey.
