    « Stay Away »

    Note that this property is no longer a Best Western. While the staff is friendly and location is key if you are looking to stay near the Asian marketplace, stay away from this hotel. There are roaches and ants everywhere. The AC unit was so loud that we needed to put on our ear buds to help us sleep. Look elsewhere for better night sleep.

    « Perfect for what we needed »

    Great location with many authentic Chinese restaurants to walk to. Great price in comparison to other options available in that area during the time we were visiting. The breakfast could be better. Eggs and sausage were cold, not alot of options, no fruit, which I was surprised. The room was very clean, good bed and sheets, yes the towels are not plush but the shower itself was great, good water pressure, clean and bidet is a bonus. Overall the room was much nicer than expected.

    « Always a great place to stay »

    My family lives in the area and we always love staying at the Best Western in Monterey Park. Great location, clean, reasonable rates, great breakfast choices, friendly and efficient staff, pool, Wi-Fi.

    « Hitting the Spot »

    It was one of those timeline where hotels, motels, etc are booked and price are sky high. Originally, my brother and I were searching for Holiday Inn Express and other affiliates. they were not close by. The closest to Monterey Park was this Best Western Monterey Park Inn! And it offers free breakfast too! So we opt for it. it was not a bad choice at all. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel was located on 420 N. Atlantic Blvd, close by the freeway 110 and next to Ralph's supermarket, Ranch 99 and other shopping malls! The room was standard two beds, with free coffee, tea and two free bottles of water too! Our first room was on the first floor . However, the shower faucet apparatus didn't work and our room was promptly switched to another room on the 2nd floor. Room was keep clean on a daily basis by the staff and bottles of water replaced. Breakfast offering range was not the same as some other hotels. For example, the pastries were mini-donuts. No raisin snails, full donuts , etc. There was scrambled eggs and sliced hams and some sauages. Though there were coffee, tea, and choices of juices, white and wheat breads, along with a waffle machine. It was acceptable at minimum. Otherwise, the stay was not bad as the location was just right!

    « Nice hotel »

    The entrance to the hotel from the road can be confusing at first but once mastered, it's easy. The pool and hot tub are nice but no towels are provded. The pool stays in the sun all day. The breakfast is very basic with few tables, especially when busy.

    « Didn't feel safe »

    Unfamiliar with area so didn't know it was a Asian community. Lot's of noise and difficult to understand when speaking with desk clerk. Is close to freeway. Didn't like that room had smell and ants. Didn't bother notifying desk as it was difficult enough to get checked in. Water from shower and sink had a really bad smell. Assume that is just a community thing or perhaps hotel doesn't provide water treatment. Just a quick overnight but will make more inquires in future as to nearby businesses.

    « Terrible. »

    Woke up itching from something that bit me. Place had a terrible oder, flighty carpets, smoking everywhere although sigh stating this is a non smoking hotel are posted. Bed needs to be replaced. Nasty shower.

    « Great Room, Poor Breakfast »

    The room was very tidy, a little cramped, but having a king size bed was amazing. The room was very comfortable in general and had a working A/C unit in it and plenty of lighting in the room. The shower was very spacious as well. However, the breakfast was poor in quality. It was one of the main reasons that I chose the Best Western, but I was sadly disappointed. If you are looking for a comfortable place to stay, stay here, but go and get breakfast at a local diner.

    « Friendly employees »

    excellent service, excellent breakfast (this is the best part I enjoy staying in this hotel). Friendly employees, nice location, close to shopping center and restaurant, easy access to freeway, and many Christian church around.

    « Rose Bowl Trip »

    Easy taxi ride to the game. Plenty of food options nearby. Staff was fairly friendly. Breakfast was quick and nice. Rooms are are average, but seemed clean. Ask for room on main as stairs are tricky to navigate with luggage. Would stay again for the price.

    « room location was noisy »

    The people behind the desk were very nice. the room was very clean, but had ants, which is a seasonal thing in California. Don't get rooms near the stairwells. They are metal and they reverberate, and each time someone walked up and down, it sounded quite markedly in my room. The bed was comfy, the room very spacious.

    « poor management forth hotel »

    « Very impressed! »

    The staff at this hotel are very kind and professional. They genuinely want to make your stay pleasant. I was impressed with their service and the hotel itself is clean and the bed super comfy! I will definitely be staying here again when in the area. The value was great in comparison to all other hotels in the vicinity.

    « Sooooo Good »

    I can never imagine to live so intimate hotel in the United States , the best service ever, so does the breakfast! We are very happy to have the convenience of a community can move around , do not worry even big night ! Cinemas , restaurants very much , the location is the best , the family joined a tour is very convenient !

    « Let down by Maintenance »

    So when i stayed here my time was ruined mainly by the bathroom . Shower wall had hairs on it as if it hadnt been touched by a cleaning person . the drain was clogged immediately after running the water . and im not getting strangers coming through my room at midnight to fix things

    « Seems to cater more for asian visitors »

    The area has a lot of Japanese business's in the area. This might explain why the toilet has all the "toys" that you might expect to see in Tokyo, heated seat, wash/rinse options and many more. Sadly the symbols just made me confused. Unless you like Asian food then you will need to drive to find something to eat. The hotel is adequate for most but there are no elevators so if you are on the second floor travel light. The breakfast area was busy both mornings I was there. There is plenty for those who like noodles or similar for breakfast. I made the mistake of asking a lady who was preparing breakfast where any ketchup might be. It was clear she did not understand English at all.

    « Amazing place »

    i just feel so happy to have a great location like this! u could get anything u want near by, ralphs is a plus.Nice clean comfy room with a curious staff. The rooms are not large but they are adequate. The best part about it is the location. Movie theater right next door. Fitness center a few doors down from that. Plenty of good restaurants all within a quarter mile.

    « Monterey Park Inn »

    Nice area with lots of restaurants around the blocks with walking distance , Thats my main reason I stay here again and again , Easy to get on and off freeway, just close to HWY 10, less than a minute, Hotel staffs are friendly !

    « Room not as advertised »

    I booked a room advertised as a King Sized bed, only to find out that it was a Queen sized bed. Avoid Rooms #104 and #103. They claim to be non-smoking rooms but the genius management of the hotel has placed a smoking patio directly outside these rooms. To further add to the poor planning of this property, Room #104 shares a wall with two vending machines and an ice machine is also located directly outside. You will NOT have a peaceful, quiet night's sleep if you're unfortunate enough to be placed in this room. If you like inhaling second hand smoke and hearing people chatter, ice machines dispense their goods and vending machines in action, then these are definitely the rooms that you should request! Finally, unless you understand an Asian language, don't even bother turning on the television. You'll only have access to 4 local channels, ESPN, Discovery, a heavily blurred HBO feed and about 100 Asain language channels (Not exaggerating).

    « Don't recommend this location. »

    I've stayed at different Best Western all along the west coast and this was the first time I was not satisfied overall. The room was smelly and their were gnats. I will not be staying at this location the next time I'm in LA.

    « Nice motel in Monterey »

    Nice, quite motel at the Atlantic Blv in Monterey Park. Very clean and very very comfortable beds, spacious rooms. Poor breakfast (incl.) , no really choice: just eggs, waffle, sausages and jam. If you expect motel standard - you`ll be satisfied. If you expect 3star hotel - you`ll be disappointed. Generally: good value, ok for 1 night when you`re in long journey.

    « This BW should have its accreditation removed »

    We had a terrible experience staying in this Best Western. Between not supplying a crib for our baby, hassling with us over the bill, a dirty room, and an infestation of ants in the bathroom and vanity, it was not a good stay.

    « Convenient, Friendly and Excellent value for money »

    If you have business in the area or are on vacation , this is an excellent hotel to consider. It is minutes from the freeway providing easy access to the surrounding area. Ample parking is available. The staff are friendly and welcoming. Rooms are fairly spacious and comfortably furnished with international TV channels available. The hotel is situated on a busy road but the rooms are quiet. A buffet style breakfast is available with a good selection of hot and cold items to choose from. There are Western and Asian supermarkets within easy walking distance and a selection of restaurants to choose from. Highly recommended member of the Best Western group.

    « Great hotel for short stay! »

    Nice hotel located at convenient location of Monterey Park, there are plenty of grocery stores nearby, lots of Chinese foods. This BW hotel is unique than others because the breakfast has Chinese breakfast too. Room was pretty clean, staff was very kind.

    « Surprisingly good location »

    My wife and I stayed here for several days in February, and were very satisfied with the experience. Spacious rooms, very friendly staff, OK breakfast, and very good location for either walking to good Asian restaurants or driving anywhere in the area.

    « Horrible »

    Parking is insufficient for larger vehicles and trailers. Staff needs great improvement towards guest. Breakfast is mundane and not appetizing. This establishment needs to restructure parking lot. Not enough room. Hotel is run down needs great improvement Need more access to american restaurants and shops. too many "B" rated restaurants.......

    « Enjoyable »

    Had a wonderful stay at this Best Western. The staff were as kind and helpful as could be.It was a fun time as we had spent the afternoon at the Space Museum which was extremely interesting.We ate a fabulous Chinese Restaurant that was suggested to us by Grace at the front desk. DELICIOUS food...to say the least. I think this is a great place to stay and would stay again on my next L A trip.

    « Looks are good, Quality is bad »

    Be sure to exam the door lock mechanism and the bed quality when you check in. Room 125 had NO dead bolt or swing arm lock.

    « Loved this place! »

    This lovely place is an oasis after long days in LA. Immaculately clean room, very comfy bed, (great big bed pillows!). The staff was very attentive and friendly. When I needed help printing out boarding passes, a knowledgeable, super friendly employee, (i am sorry not to remember your name!), was patient and helped me through it. The location seemed safe and was very quiet. One of the nicest motels we have visited!

    « Great place and location »

    I have stayed at this hotel several times over the past few years. The staff personnel are wonderful and very helpful. The location is right by the Monterey Park plaza. Walking distance to restaurants and grocery store is a plus. I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling through the area.

    « Best experience ever »

    I have stayed in 3 star, 4 star hotels before. But this hotel is so far the best experience for us. This hotel is not fancy, not so luxuray, however, it is very clean, and NO SMELL! Most important, it has the best staff in the world who help you like your family members. I highly recommend this hotel.

    « Best hotel for an affordable price »

    The location is good, not to close to the busy city area but right next to the the freeway entrance so there's quite a bit of accessibility. The room service was good, the breakfast buffet was better than most other hotels but the room wifi is weak and it may be hard to find parking if you return late at night (around midnight), otherwise, parking is fine.

    « Convenient Location, Close to freeways, shops, resturaunt, theaters »

    Overall, if you're looking for a place to stay in Monterey Park, this is a great value. The rooms are nicely updated, fancy toilet (heated seats), flat screen TV, beds are comfortable, and complimentary breakfast definitely plays to it's close demographic to the chinese community of the area -- porridge and tea eggs as options, along with your usual american hot breakfast items.

    « Fit our needs perfectly »

    This is a great value hotel right in the heart of Monterey Park's commercial strip. For the money, you can't beat the location, free parking, complimentary breakfast, clean rooms, friendly service. It is steps away from a large, beautiful mall with a movie theater and great Asian eateries. We were just three blocks from the restaurant where a wedding banquet was being held and where parking is impossible. Three walking blocks did the trick for us to arrive ready for the party. We enjoyed the cultural experience of being among Chinese at the mall, at the hotel, everywhere we walked.

    « Easy to go to anywhere by car »

    We stayed there for 1 week, no problems about my room although the carpet in the hall smelt bad. Some freeways around the hotel make your life easy because you can get anywhere. The breakfast is just Ok but it is enought.. Would stay there again because the price is adequate

    « Not Bad For A Short Stay »

    Stayed here for two nights while our house was getting fumigated. Pros: room was spacious and clean. Came with mini fridge. Free two bottles of water in the room daily. Free hot breakfast, including Chinese breakfast (porridge). Quiet even though it's by a major street. Next to lots of restaurants, movie theater, supermarkets, and close to freeway on ramps. Cons: Room has some funny smell. We had to use an air freshener. Saw a couple of ants on bathroom counter. Woke up with a bug on my blanket. Room downstairs can hear people walking above and walking up stairs. Can hear shower next door. Room has hardwood floor instead of carpet - I prefer carpet. Bathroom floor rug has some stains that looked like blood. They should throw that away! It does look like more cons than pros..., but it was better than I expected for a motel in Monterey Park on a major street. And I just needed a place to sleep for two nights. I just hope we did not bring any bugs back home with us after we fumigated our house...

    « Old rooms and weird bathroom?? »

    Pros: close to a Amc cinema say 200 meters. Cons: update the room get rid of the toilet bum washer ?! Location: walking distance to asian food and mac cinema - not much else. "First impressions are mmmmm no sure this is a good thing" ?? Some of the staff go out of their way to help and greet you nicely some it was all to much. When parking try not to make eye contact with some patrons who feel to sit on their ute's tail gate and stare as you enter - ok ? Room was older with funky smell. Bed soft/worn to the point you have to roll of the edge of mattress to get out of bed, air con noisey. The bathroom is strange , the toilet has a weird looking bum washer ?! but its broken and makes the toilet uncomfortable - yes I know this is a weird point but it was just a bad thing, the shower head was poor the tempture was hard to get right and changed quite often. breakfast just ok but room its in is so small. Would I stay here again, no.

    « Don't let the "motel" looks fool you »

    I travel for business around 60 nights per year and my main objective is to find a hotel that is convenient and comfortable. This "hotel" looks more like an old school "motel" --- u shaped buildings and all rooms open onto the parking lot. But don;t let the looks fool you. Great location for anywhere in LA --- but even more important, incredible comfortable bed and pillows. And the heated commode seat is a nice extra touch. All in all, still at the top of my favorites list for convenience and comfort if you are traveling to LA.

    « A Best Western in Need of a Remodel ! ! ! »

    I stay at Best Westerns for the Rewards as I do volunteer work for ALS, Lou Gehrig's Disease which has events in Napa Co. and Monterey. You can tell a hotel room by its bathroom. The bottom of the toilet bowl was very brown. There was grout between the tiles in the bath area. The shower water temperature was hard to figure out as was the shower hear which was frozen on a steady stream. Luckily I called down a day before to learn that there was no sugar-free syrup for the waffles which I need as I am diabetic. This problem was solved as there is a supermarket a few blocks from this Best Western. Lastly, I had a $25 Rewards coupon for staying two nights at two different Best Westerns. I was surprised that the $25 was deducted before my 10% AAA discount. This would have saved me $10 more if it was deducted after the discount ! ! !

    The hotel is located in a mini "China Town". Walking distance to many different type of restaurants and many great sweet deserts places, and next to an Asian strip shopping mall. Room was nice and clean. Front desk staffs were very friendly. Continental breakfast plus Chinese rice porridge and tea eggs. The only bad recommendation to stay there is if you don't mind the loud noise from your neighbor guests who slammed the door at 4:30 am.......

    « Best Western Ever »

    Being from Europe I can understand how critical our dear Americans can get about one of the largest hotel chains in the US.. Despite mixed reviews for this place, we took our chances and did not regret at all: One of the friendliest staff we ever encountered. Rooms well kept and clean, personnel was never intrusive and always with the REAL smile on the face. Internet signal and speed was better than the other places similar. Pool area, although very small was fully functional, clean and never overcrowded. We liked how the place was blended in the local flavor of the area (very vibrant and interesting community to explore.. we had some of the best Asian style eats in the walking distance from the hotel. Stayed for more than a week there, so can really recommend with confidence.

    Room was nice and clean, need very confidante comfortable with soft sheets and pillows. The bathroom was nice with soft towels and the shower was strong! I've never experienced such a high-tech toilet. .it had buttons that warm the seat and functions as a bidet for all your "areas down there"..lol..it was different! Instead of providing individual bottles of shampoo, etc they had dispensers on the wall and in the shower which was a great idea. The front desk was friendly and fixed our TV. It was in the heart of an Asian community so there was many places to choose from to eat within walking distance. I would definitely stay again!

    The staff was very helpful and pleasant. We used the pool and spa almost everyday. The breakfast area was very clean and well stocked. This is a bargain in the middle of an Asian neighborhood. A grocery store is next door, and Pasadena restaurants are 20 minutes down the road. We used the laundromat near Starbucks, while we sipped on our coffee.
