    « Certainly met our needs »

    Basic lodging but clean and very well priced. Very quiet, too, and good location?easy driving distance to local attractions. Friendly service at the front desk. Had everything we were looking for in a reasonably priced place to stay on the coast.

    « Good value »

    Spring break stay; enough kids for pool games (surprised to swim in March - heated pool!) Breakfast selection good with extra seating on outside patio. Parking is a challenge with 2 buildings at different elevations and spaces tricky to get in and out of. Careful with your rental car! Rooms are updated, and include fridge, microwave and flat screen tv

    « Good lodgings »

    Unlike other Best Westerns in Monterey, this motel has an unassuming, basic exterior and lobby. However the rooms are comfortable, reasonably spacious, and clean. The breakfast consists of standard fare for motels, not remarkable but decent. If you don't mind the modest exterior, this is a good choice in terms of value.

    « Basic 2.5 star »

    We stayed in this motel during our roadtrip. This motel is just basic place to stay one night. Rooms need some updating. There's smell awful in breakfast room and breakfast was -not so good. Otherwise I didn't expected anything special for 2,5 star motel. Staff was great.

    « Location Location Location »

    The hotel is a good hotel and has good service, it can definitely use some renovation but what really irreplaceable with this hotel is the LOCATION! It is only 5 minutes to the Del Monte Shopping Center, about 20 min to the Warf and bey 15 to Alvarado Street.

    « Not up to BW standard »

    We stopped here on our way back north, hoping to relive some wonderful times we had in the area decades earlier. The hotel is a disappointment - seems to me to below BW standards - are there any? The building is old and looks it. There are big trash containers in front of some units, and these were overflowing during our stay. If you're desperate and looking only for a clean comfortable bed and don't care about the room or property, this is OK. But it's not a place to hang out. We had a little front room in our queen suite but it was freezing so we didn't use it. Also there was a metal divider between the two rooms that I kept stubbing my toe on. Just not somewhere we would stay again, especially after having experienced a beautiful La Quinta the evening before. I don't know what the BW brand stands for anymore, so we have definitely branched out.

    « Nice for the price »

    This is an older Best Western that has some upgrades. As with all Best Westerns we have stayed at the staff is very professional, polite and friendly. We had a unique room that had a separate sitting room from the bedroom and was very comfortable. Close to all activities here in Monterey.

    We stayed here for the AT&T at pebble beach the motel is close to everything and its easy to get on the freeway from here as well we will definately look to stay here again for the golf tournament next year

    « Perfect location-reasonable rates »

    We stayed at this Best Western during our time volunteering for the AT&T. Perfect location. Easy to get to freeway. You can walk to downtown Monterey to all kinds of restaurants. Large shopping center also within easy walking distance. Staff very helpful and friendly, rooms clean, breakfast good.

    « Sufficient for a nights stay »

    Rooms are clean and comfortable. Bathroom was always freezing cold. Friendly staff. Great location for a stop off and very close to 17 mile drive. I wouldn't recommend staying here longer than a night or two.

    « Amazing Service »

    I stayed here for a short weekend trip, but was treated with an amazing and accommodating staff. We received a room upgrade for our room not being ready on time, without asking.The jacuzzi outside was broken at the time, and the continental breakfast lacked sufficient seating. Great room rates for the quality of stay!

    « The staff distinguishes this hotel from all the others »

    Our trip to Monterey was unplanned; we were among the many evacuees leaving the Santa Barbara/Ventura area to escape the Thomas Fire. When we first arrived at the Best Western Park Crest Inn, we did not know how long we would be staying since we didn't know when the fire would be contained. Ultimately, our Monterey trip turned into a two-and-a-half week stay, so my husband and I got to know the hotel pretty well. We discovered that we could not have picked a better spot than the Best Western Park Crest Inn. Staff: This is what truly distinguishes this hotel from all the others. We found everyone to be helpful, friendly, conscientious and very skilled at their jobs?whether at the front desk, tending the breakfast room, or cleaning rooms. If we could add extra stars to our rating in this category we would! The hotel manager, Esmeralda Frausto, particularly, is exceptional. My husband and I have never experienced such truly caring, helpful, welcoming, accommodating, resourceful, knowledgeable service as we experienced from Esmeralda. In everything she does, it is obvious that she loves her work and truly cares about every guest. She listens and is ready to help in any way she can, she is quick to address any issue that may come up, and anticipates guests' needs. We cannot say enough good things about this very remarkable person. She and the rest of the staff made our stay a complete pleasure. Cleanliness: Our room was very clean; everything was fresh and well maintained?bedding, paint, furniture, carpet, and bathroom/vanity areas. And there were no odors (cleaning or otherwise). Breakfast: A very good, well rounded breakfast each morning. We opted for the scrambled eggs, potatoes, cereal, yogurt and fruit, but breakfast options also include sausage, a variety of breads/Danish pastries/muffins, juice, and more. There was a nice selection of condiments, too: hot sauce, cream cheese, ketchup, etc. The dining room is small (but not tiny), so it can get crowded depending upon timing and whether or not the hotel is full. Whenever it was so busy we couldn't find a table, we grabbed a muffin and coffee, went back to our room for half an hour and returned to the dining room to find several open tables. Quiet: Our upstairs room was extremely quiet. I am very sensitive to noise, so I appreciated that our room seemed immune from any of the typical hotel noises (from TVs/conversation in adjoining rooms, traffic, refrigerator motor, a/c or heating fans, etc.). There have been comments about a thumping sound made whenever one is getting in or out of bed. That is true. There is metal box around the base of the bed (I suspect to keep items from getting lost under the bed), which causes this sound. I noticed it, but it didn't bother me. Location: We love the location of this hotel, which is away from the busyness, bustle and construction work of downtown, but an easy walk to downtown attractions and uptown shopping. We are walkers so a 1-mile walk through the historic sections of Monterey or a 2-mile walk to the Aquarium is an enjoyable adventure. Del Monte Shopping Center is approximately half a mile away; we often stopped here for lunch at Whole Foods. Trader Joe's is half a mile toward downtown. Don Dahvee Park is directly across the street for a stroll along trails. The Monterey public library is also just half a mile away. For driving, it's easy to go down Pacific Street over to Lighthouse Avenue to get to the aquarium, Cannery Row, New Monterey or Pacific Grove. Access to Highway 1 north and south are near the Del Monte Shopping Center (half a mile away) with a gas station at the corner. This made day trips to Carmel, Elkhorn Slough, and Santa Cruz very easy. In summary, this location afforded easy access to Highway 1, food, gas, and uptown/downtown destinations, plus a AAA office (on Soledad) and good laundromat (Monterey Express Wash on Soledad) nearby. Free Parking: We had no problem with parking throughout our 2-1/2 week stay.

    Wifi kept going out over and over, bed wasn't that comfortable, other than that is was ok. Nothing super great, just ok. Food was good, bacon and eggs and stuff for breakfast, parking was not adequate

    « Hotel bathroom improvements need. »

    Sun powered system has make use of energy much efficient. Bathroom may be need a fan to force the moisture out. It has much of condensation around the bathroom window. This may cause damage later on in the future.

    « Of to the Monterrey Aquarium »

    This was one step up from a Motel 6 as I remember them. We only stay at BW properties. I was very disappointed. The room smelled like Lysol the minute I opened the door. A wave of that smell. The room was clean, but should not smell like a Lysol. The blankets where not even good enough for the pets. They where pitiful. Most all the BW's have the Honeycomb weave blankets that are very nice and heavy weight for comfort and warmth. The property is tired and dated and for the area needs to be upgraded to get 3 stars from AAA! Wow, put on the glasses. The Bed was comfortable. The room clean, just way to dated for a 3 star review.

    « Value for $$ »

    Stayed here for 2 nights and found it to be perfect for our needs. The staff were lovely and helpful, the room was spacious and clean, beds comfy and breakfast good. Some rooms are being renovated, which was not noisey at all. Distance from Aquarium was a short 5 mins drive. Close to fast food down the road or around the corner. I would stay here again next time I visit. :)

    « Perfect for a family getaway »

    This hotel was perfect for our family. We had a room that had 2 rooms so the kids had their own space, which was a bonus! It was in a location easy to get to all the tourist spots in Monterey. They even had a hot tub and pool, which my kids were crazy enough to jump into. The breakfast in the morning was better then other locations I have stayed at in the past. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

    « Oakhurst Best Western in December »

    We really enjoyed our stay at Oakhurst Best Western for our family trip in December 2017. We made the reservation while on the road the day before, the service and the deal offered was great value for money. A well presented motel in a beautiful setting.

    « Roadtrip from San Fran to Pismo Beach »

    Very helpful staff. Late check in, let us swap to a downstairs room and helped us with some milk for a late dinner. Room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was really good. Very good value for money. Would highly recommend.

    « Good, nothing special »

    Room was clean and neat, bathroom a bit tight due to poor design. Breakfast was simple and adequate. Would suggest walking over to Parker-Lusseau Bakery for their outstanding French pastries and top-quality espresso, however! Location is easy drive to Aquarium and quick access to freeway

    « Another Best Western gem »

    Check in was quick and the staff was great! Room was very clean. The bed was comfortable, the linens clean and nice to sleep in. The bathroom had plenty of space and the towels were clean. Room was made up every day! The breakfast choices were good - from toast to yogurt to eggs and bacon to waffles. Coffee and tea, milk also available. Parking was plentiful and the area was older, but definitely not grungy! They have a small pool, too. Within walking distance to Alvarado Street and Old Fisherman's Wharf, where you can find restaurants, bars, shops. There is also the Del Monte Center (mall) with plenty of shops and more restaurants nearby. I would recommend staying here.

    « Good value »

    Exterior of property is well maintained. "Senior" room (154) was adequate except for the bed. Most uncomfortable 3 nights sleep I've had all year. Good location and a well stocked breakfast room. Ceiling above bathtub has some mold developing and the flip down chair for bathing doesn't tempt usage.

    « Thanksgiving 2017 »

    We had the handicap mobility room right next to the mail office. VERY convenient location to everything and we loved the staff, our bed, the breakfast, the pool and hot tub! We plan to return next time we visit Monterey.

    « Highly Recommended »

    When we first opened the door to our room I smelled a strong rush of cleaning supplies. Usually, this would bother me, but a super-clean motel is exactly what we want with a little toddler running around on the floor. Service was VERY friendly and accommodating. We were quite pleased with our stay. No complaints at all!

    « Whale Watching »

    My granddaughter and I were in Monterey for a whale watching trip and stayed at this Best Western.The room was great, our stay was good and it was an easy drive to where we had to catch the boat. The breakfast was one of the better ones I've had at a Best Western.

    « Good but small »

    The hotel staff are great and I would say they do everything within their power to make you comfortable. The unfortunate thing is what they can't do...enlarge the parking area to actually accommodate the number of guests that stay there at one time. Parking is cramped and sparse. The breakfast is okay. Nothing to write home about, but it is nice it's included in your stay (not all hotels do that). However, the room they serve the food in is small, maybe 10 x 15 and it is difficult to get your food because they crammed in too many tables (even though not enough to help). Think of sitting to eat your breakfast while someone's backside is against the back of your head because they are trying to access the small fridge or make a waffle. There is outside tables, if you are okay sitting there in 40 degree cool air. Would be nice to enlarge the room, by moving the office somewhere else.

    5
    « Lovely view from 2nd floor »

    The manager let me use BW Rewards points so I was able to stay for free! With a good free breakfast, comfortable bed, chair and sunrise sipping tea, I was really relaxed. Maybe I try the jacuzzi next time.

    « Very good breakfast helpful employee »

    Very Good breakfast very helpful employees. Walking distance to fisherman's wharf and mall. Just need more towel in the room we only have 2 towels in the room. At least they have to put 4 so we don't have to call and ask.

    « Excellent service »

    Excellent service . Breakfast included and it was good, the basis . Confortables beds and very clean room. Parking lot close and clean . The only thing is the tv programs. I understand they are not going to have all channels but at least the regular tv should work .

    « Decent value and great location »

    We felt the price was very competitive given the amenities (parking and HOT breakfast). The location was great and very convenient to everywhere we wanted to explore in the area. Property was well maintained and clean.

    « Wonderful stay in Monterey! »

    The Crest Inn was a great place. It was clean, breakfast was good, and the staff was very courteous. I would definitely stay there again. Parking is tight especially for people with large trucks. The only thing I would change is the size of the pool towels. They're kind of small for adults but the right size for a child.

    « Enjoying Stay at Monterey Bay »

    Clean, affordable & quiet for family overnight needs. Pool small but also clean. Breakfast family orientated (and at no extra cost). Convenient for visiting down-town Monterey area, but will need to drive to more popular wharf and Cannery Row areas. Easy to find motel off of highway one.

    « Moderately Priced MOTEL, minutes by car all attractions »

    Well priced, very clean property. Continental Breakfast included with each night stay. Ample parking even on a sold-out weekend. Great for families, nice pool & spa area. Friendly staff. Very quiet and restful sleep, although beds need replacing. Old spring mattresses.

    « Everyone was right »

    Read the reviews of this motel...all were very good. One comment that stuck in my mind was how nice the beds were....they were right. We were only one mile from the ward and less than 2 miles from Cannery Row. We will book this motel again....

    « A great value! »

    This hotel is a great value with a very professional staff. It is walking distance to Old Town Monterey and Old Fisherman's Wharf. There is A Trader Joe's downtown and on Tuesday nights there is a Farmer's Market and outdoor food booths. We also recommend Cibo's, an Italian restaurant with a great Happy Hour and live music!

    « Great staff, uncomfortable bed »

    Great staff and I liked an opening window in the bathroom. Older place in relatively good shape. They keep the swimming pool heated nicely. The bed wasn't comfortable (advertisement said "pillow top" but we certainly didn't get that). There was a line at check out and they don't have express check out.

    « Clean, reasonable, and included great breakfast! »

    I love an Inn that is clean, reasonable, nicely decorated, has internet, and had a good breakfast included!! This has it all. Plus, it had a discount, I was not originally aware of, for visiting a family member at the Senior Living facility across the street.

    « Enjoy the waves »

    This hotel filled our needs perfectly. We upgraded to a double room so me and my buddy had separate rooms. The beds were great and the room quiet enough to hear seals a half mile away. Staff was courteous. I have stayed here before and will again. It is close enough to downtown and allows convenient routes to Pacific Grove or the warf

    « Nice hotel...nice staff »

    We stayed here for 2 nights to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Monterey Aquariom and Bay. The nights were quiet, allowing us to sleep well. We enjoyed our meals at the various eating establishments located on and aroung Cannery Row.

    « DO NOT STAY HERE »

    Can we possibly be talking about the same hotel? We booked two nights here in September. The room we were given was at the bottom of a ramp and actually had posts in front of it so no one would drive thru our window. I have severe arthritis and had to hold onto a railing to edge my way up and down the ramp. I asked for a different room. They only had a two bedroom on the second floor but no elevator so I couldn't do that either. It's not just the hardship of getting up and down, if there was a fire I'd be in trouble. The breakfast was mediocre and very crowded. The rooms were very old. We left after one night as during the night I heard a cars brakes squealing as it edged down the ramp and I would have never forgiven myself if something happened. We ended up at a Hilton Gardens that was $100. a night more but worth it. Just not planned in the budget. I have more notes on this place somewhere and can't find them. Will add a review if I do. This place cost $199.80 for the one night! It is in no way worth it. The front desk staff was very apologetic. Since this was basically the only room (altho I had booked a few weeks ahead) it got foisted on us. I don't know how it could even be legal to have such a set up.

    4
    « Good hotel in quiet location »

    This is a typical Best Western, with the usual clean rooms and good location. Monterey is a tourist area so it was nice that our rooms were quiet but close to a nice shopping area with restaurants, Whole Foods, Macy's, etc. Easy to find, and easy to get to the nearby freeway or local attractions.

    4
    « Good no frills accommodation »

    We had originally only planned to stay one night in Monterey but the continued closure of PCH meant we added a second night to this part of our West Coast Road Trip so we could travel south for a day. This hotel offered a real actively low cost option within easy reach of all amenities. The room was well appointed and exceptionally clean on arrival. Check-in and check-out were both smooth and efficient with helpful, friendly staff on hand on both occasions. The free breakfast was a nice continental affair with a few hot options - very tasty! The hotel was within a short drive of the main roads so very accessible and easily within walking distance of Monterey town centre and the local shopping mall / cinema. We made use of the pool area on the afternoon of both days of our stay - it was nice and quiet event though it was next to but well screened from the road. All in all, a very comfortable stay in a low cost but comfortable and clean room.

    « A very good stay! »

    We had a hard time deciding on a hotel in this area as there are many similar motel type inns and they were somewhat expensive. The Park Crest Inn seemed to fit our bill the best and it did not disappoint. Staff was very, very courteous and the property was immaculately clean. You could observe staff constantly cleaning. Property appeared to be perhaps an older motel but it has been kept up very well and modernized. Our room was very spacious and had two king beds, a fridge, excellent air conditioning and a fairly large vanity/sink area separate from the bathroom. As is often the case, the breakfast area was very busy in the mornings and the lobby/breakfast room was pretty small although they kept the breakfast items well stocked and maintained to keep up with the guests. Good selection of breakfast food. The pool area is right by the road and not very private, although again, it appeared very clean and there were several guests that used it though we did not. There is no elevator to the upper floor, which although only a single staircase, this could be difficult on guests with mobility issues. Would definitely recommend staying here if in the area. Very easy access to the highway and an easy drive to the waterfront area as well. Very comfortable stay.

    « Not really non smoking »

    You can't call a hotel non smoking if you have the smoking ash trays right outside the rooms. All the smoke drifted into the room even when we had the windows closed. It wasn't just our room. These large ash trays were scattered thru out the hotel

    « Budget friendly hotel »

    We checked in for one night. Easy check in, very accomodating front desk lady, free great variety of breakfast. About 2 miles walk to the wharf. Restaurants about a mile away. The rooms are kinda old with "old building smell" but tolerable. I've seen some flying bugs inside though. :-( The room is spacious with fridge and microwave. You can park your car just outside the room. If you are on a tight budget, then this hotel is good for you.

    « Overall nice experience »

    We came here to escape the extreme heat from the bay area, pool and breakfast are plus, location wise is a bit far to walk to the Dennis park, but it's close to the del monte shopping center. No elevator is a minus especially for family with toddler and seniors.

    « Everything Worked »

    Stayed two nights.

    Stayed at the BW in Monterey CA. This was a very important trip to us, we had a total of 7, including my kids and parents! We ended up staying 2 nights at the BW at the end of our trip. After my experience here I will make BW a priority when I book again. I travel extensively for work (approx 3-4 nights a week at a hotel every week), exceptional value, service experience and great facilities. I highly recommend if you are going to be in the Monterey or Carmel area.

    « Excellent location, good parking. »

    The staff are warm and relaxed and we felt welcome here. This is a good location to walk to the pier area, but easy to find from the highway. The breakfast room is very small but it works as everyone is polite & relaxed. Very clean but homely, it feels like a family run hotel- not a faceless chain. The pool is smaller than it appears in the pictures but was good for a dip at the end of a day sightseeing. Definitely recommend this hotel that leaves you with a feelgood vibe.

    « Great hotel »

    We stayed here over the weekend in early August. We looked online for a while and we couldn't choose a hotel. We chose this one based on previous reviews and were not disappointed. The staff were all very friendly, the property was clean & well taken care of, safe area, and we did not have any problems with our stay. The breakfast in the morning is great--items included fruit, yogurt, waffles, bacon, sausage, and scrambled eggs (fresh, not a mix). The pool was heated and open until 10PM. The rooms were large. We had a room with 2 queen beds and there was plenty of room for three adults. We drove to Cannery Row from here and it was a short 5 minute drive. Overall a great experience and we will definitely stay at this property when we return to the area.

    « Nice and clean »

    Nice clean rooms. Near the fishermans wharf but not quite close enough to say walking distance. I didn't use the heated pool but saw other guests enjoying it. I would recommend this place to friends and family. My only real problem was the air conditioner didn't work very good or at all as far as I could tell. Also it kept making a loud hum every 5 min as the compressor kept trying to come on. (Not conducive to falling asleep) finally had to turn it off and open the window and fell asleep in no time.

    This hotel is located close to beach, shopping, and the staff are great. It offers a full breakfast which most hotels in the area do not. The food is good, staff even better. It is quiet at night with no issues. Has a pool and spa and guest towels for the pool. Will even sell you the towels and other things if you would like.

    The view was very nice. The hotel was nice also. Cost was a bit pricey. The room was very clean and smells good. The breakfast venue was a bit small thinking that a lot of people will choose this hotel because it is nicer than others. They should expand the breakfast area.

    We wanted a place close to everything in Monterey, at a good price, clean, updated, great service & free breakfast - BW Park Crest was the perfect choice! Plus, there's a jacuzzi!

    This Inn was very clean and well taken care of. Well situated, within walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf. Easy access to the freeway. The neighborhood was pretty quiet given the amount of people that visit the area. The personnel working there were the most attentive I have encountered. Each seemed to really enjoy there job which is odd in this day and time.

Free breakfast was unlike any other, hot food with every dressing you can think of, kids had waffles with peanut butter, whip cream and strawberry syrup and chopped fruits on the side, they loved it. I had eggs bacon and sausage. Saved us money on breakfast. I had the best time here, kids loved the heated pool, I felt it, it was actually heated to a comfortable level even adults could enjoy.

    Overall, the hotel was above my expectation for the price paid. The service was excellent, and the room feels clean. The location was also very close to downtown and the aquarium. However, my complaints are: 1) The satellite tv had an intermittent reception on a cloudy day. As a result, I couldn't watch TV. 2) I could hear the noise from the street, but it's not too bad. 3) The bed was on the soft side. It's a personal preference. 4) The breakfast room was small.

    « Small but nice rooms, ok breakfast »

    First of all; location is very convenient; just off the Highway 1, and midway to downtown Monterey, along with many other chain motels; consider it a strip, but in a quiet setting; park to other side of street, and residential on backside. Second; yes, the facilities are old, which can mean several things here, good and/or bad (see further below)., but certainly one thing; small rooms. Third; furnishings are new, modern and quite comforatble; good small fridge with freezing compratment, lazy chair with footrest/stool, big screen tv, high bed, choice of 4 pillows, big bathroom mirror w/ granite counter and splash, tiled bathroom/shower with mounted soap and shampoo dispensers, coffe maker and even a dryer for hair (often you have to ask at the front desk). Personally, we ended up in a room in the 1-story part all the way at the end (of the one-way, drive-thru property), with parking in front of room, and no back-to-back, which means that the bathrooms have slider windows that actually allow for a view of fence, green and (smell of fresh) air. But, beware of the (double) connecting doors between rooms at the end, allowing for an 'en-suite' but in actual fact mostly used as neighboring one-bedrooms, which means that you're at the mercy of your neighbor. In our case, the neigboring room also happened to be the 'charging' facility for electric vehicles; not so common for the road traveller due to limited reach, but we had one neighbor that ended up in the room for that reason; the cord just hangs out of the window. We should have asked for a different room right away but for some reason (tired of travel, wanting to take a shower, just emptied the car ?), we didn't. Two nights were quiet, but the third night the neighbor started the tv at 5am. So, check your room before settling down. Last but not least; breakfast; all cereals, yoghurts, waffles, scrambled eggs w/ bacon and saucages. Some fruit, only banana's, bread but no spread other than marmelade, so that after two breakfasts we skipped it all together and went straight for a major coffee brand shop; just not much variation, and not geared towards the international (i.e. European) travellers.

    « paper-thin walls! »

    it's basically a motor lodge style and we were given the room at the furthest end which was quiet from the street noise. It was a handicap room so there was a lot more space in the room. Unfortunately, the room right next to us had some loud guests and we could hear them laughing, talking, etc. maybe it's just the paper-thin walls but i swear it sounded like they were in the room with us. We had 2 toddlers with us and they kept getting woken up by the people next door. I took pleasure at the fact that since they kept my kids up, they woke crabby. My 2 1/2 year old decided to have a meltdown at 7am. I'm sure that woke them up. Karma's a bit*h.

    I booked the room based on the pool/hot tub. When we checked in and went to the pool they were painting the hot tub.

    « It's an average motel »

    This BW is well-located on hotel row (Munras) in Monterey and so is convenient to downtown Monterey (walkable) and Cannery Row or Carmel---both require driving. The room was a little dated and I was surprised to find that the table and two chairs had to be dragged from their confined space on the wall to be useable. It's a typical mid range motel, although a little less expensive than similar nearby. Parking access to the lower section is very tight, both coming and going...do not take a large vehicle down there.

    Check in was easy as was checking out. Room was clean, as was the bathroom. Shower was great, bed was comfortable and the AC was quiet which is unique for any hotel/motel these days, apparently it was upgraded recently. Breakfast was a typical continental type breakfast. Good enough to start the day. We're not pool people but the pool looked inviting and clean. Overall if you're looking for a basic, ?budget? type motel you might want to consider the Best Western Park Crest Inn. As a footnote, and not relative to my BW review, if you're driving from the San Francisco airport be prepared to be very, very patient. Due to our American Airline flight from DFW arriving almost two hours late ?due to weather? we hit the road at the beginning of rush hour. The traffic was a nightmare. We're from the Boston area so we're familiar with traffic. But?this was the world series of traffic. Try to avoid rush hour which according to the material I read is from 4:00 - 7:00PM. My take is it probably starts earlier and ends later.

    « Overpriced and Under Renovation »

    We stayed at the Best Western Park Crest Inn in June 2016. It is a motel (outdoor entries). The hotels in the Monterey area are mostly all overpriced. I do not know why this area is so expensive. We opted for this motel due to decent reviews and being under $200 per night. This was $179.99 plus taxes that put the total over $200 for 1 night. We arrived around 10pm, after a long ride up the Pacific coast highway. We must have been the last people to arrive, as we got the last parking spot and last room at the far rear corner of the motel. The room ended up being 2 rooms with a bathroom in between them. It was not what we saw in the web site photos. The rooms were clean, but we discovered some problems. The bathroom had an open window with a screen, but the screen had a big rip in it, allowing insects to fly in. I closed the window. Not sure why it was opened when the air conditioning was running. Then we found out when we sat on the beds, but there was a hollow metal sound from the base. Here the bed frames were made of some hollow thin metal. So when you move on the bed,you here this metal popping sound. If it was not so late and crowded, this alone would have caused me to ask for another room. The last problem was that there were no visible electrical outlets to plug in and charge our phones,camera batteries, etc. So I pushed the bed away from the wall just enough to plug in an extension cord, that I had with me, into the lamp outlet. Otherwise we would have had some dead devices the next day on our trip to Yosemite. They could have at least had lamps with outlets in the base. The included breakfast was good, but nothing fantastic. When I checked out, I reported the problems to the lady at the front desk. She apologized, and said that they were still working on renovating the rooms. No discount was offered for our problems. What gets me about this is that we traveled around most of California during our trip, and stayed at many Best Western hotels/motels, and this tied as the most expensive, but was the worst. Our favorite one, in Eureka, cost less, and was a Best Western Plus. This was not a Plus. From this trip to California, and from staying at other Best Western establishments over the years, it is worth paying a little extra for a BW Plus hotel. They are nicer. The next time we are in the Monterey area, we will probably stay in another town that is not so expensive for what you get.

    My teenage daughter and I stayed here for one night on a long road trip. The hotel and parking lot were clean and safe, the staff were friendly, and the breakfast was good. For what it's worth (and it's worth a fair amount on a road trip) this hotel had pats of real butter for the breakfast waffles instead of the weird little pots of margarine-oil-spread some of the other BW's use. I would stay here again without hesitation.

    « Extremely convenient »

    Our stay at the Best Western Park Crest was very enjoyable. The large room was very comfortable and well appointed. And while the hotel is adjacent to the U.S. 101 freeway, it was completely soundproof. Being next to the freeway and only about half a mile from the I280 junction, it is very convenient to all of the San Jose area.

    This appears to be an older property but is well maintained and the rooms are clean and comfortable. It's not exactly near the main tourist areas but it is quiet and only a short drive away. Complimentary breakfast has the typical items but everything we had was fresh and they keep it well stocked during the breakfast hours.

    « Disappointed. »

    Asked for a room with no steps. There was a small step in front of room which made it difficult to take things in and out of room to the car. Pool was cold and yet it was advertised as heated. Staff was notified and they did come out to start heater but it wasn't going to heat up in time for us to use.

    « In its class a clear winner. »

    Monterey was our final destination on our UK roadtrip down the Pacific Coastal Highway from Washington State. We wanted a place to 'chill' for four nights and enjoy and absorb what Monterey had to offer. The Best Western Park Crest helped deliver that in bucket loads. Having not booked anywhere we called in at the Monterey Tourist Information Centre (always a wise thing to do). Their helpful staff rang around a number of the coastal hotels (in and around Cannery Row) and all were in the $280 plus price bracket for a single room with the hope of a Bay view. It was way above our budget. So we headed up to the Best Western in Munras Avenue, a short drive from the waterfront. The Best Western receptionist far exceeded all our expections of courtesty and helpfulness. The lady was a true STAR. Arriving early on a Friday afternoon we were informed that their rates changed daily over the weekend rising to $294 for the Saturday night. (This compared to the downtown hotels which wanted $400 for the same night.) However, as we were staying the four nights it worked out only to $191 pn. We had a deal. She offered that we checked out the room first and we were in the room by 2pm. The Park Crest, which is actually opposite a park with walking trails, offered a spacious, very clean room and shower and was well appointed. The first floor room faced the Bay area and we had an excellent view of the Ocean, and at NO extra charge! After our rather long road trip that morning we were also invited to take some refreshment from the breakfast room, and the lady kindly opened the outside dining area for us, whilst we enjoyed the juice and pastries. When it came to customer service, this lady knew her onions. We wanted local information about the best places to eat and information about the Monterey Aquarium. She delivered. Her recommendation of The Fish House, in Del Monte Avenue, was well founded. She rang and made reservations for us, something that is essential as this is one very good and popular restaurant. She also sold us our Aquarium tickets at a discounted price plus you get two days entry for the price of one. There was a reasonable selection in the continental breakfast room and a choice of inside or outside seating. The pool was heated and the Inn had provided comfortable loungers to gather a few rays. Despite being full to capacity on the Friday and Saturday night there was no undue noise. Free parking was included. The Inn's location places it only a 20 minute stroll from the main waterfront area (Fisherman's Wharf), and 10 minutes walk from the FREE troley bus terminal that takes you right through Downtown and to the Aquarium (which is highly recommended). This a longer review than I would normally do, but this location warrents the credit it richly deserves. It terms of politness, hospitality, service delivery and value for money it ticks all the right boxes. Would we return here; certainly. Is it somewhere we would recommend? Definately. Well done Best Western, you helped make our trip to Monterey a treaured memory.

    Stayed here on our California Road Trip. The accommodation was fine for the one night we had planned to stay in Monterey. The Manageress was excellent; always smiling and willing to have a laugh and joke. The rooms were spacious, clean and well presented. If you want a hotel experience go to the Best Western down the road, if your after a quality one or two night road trip accommodation, then you can't go far wrong. Monterey was disappointing for me, however Carmel By the Sea was excellent and only a 10 minute car ride away.

That being said, I was very disappointed with the lack of consideration of breakfast guests waiting for a table. There was no room for sitting inside and the outside tables were wet. The kerosene heaters weren't turned on either. They seem to be lacking sufficient personnel to prepare for sitting arrangements for the overflow of breakfast patrons. I also wish that they could place signs up regarding consideration for others who may waiting for a table to eat at. The rooms are nicely remodeled except for our room which had the coffee maker and refrigerator in the bathroom!

The beach is down the hill, there is a park across the street, and another lovely park with a horse shoe shaped lake just a few blocks down. It is a quieter motel than some in this area.

The outdoor seating during breakfast was appreciated. There was a bit of a draft in our room as we could see light coming in from the door, that was about our only complaint. The location was also good for the activities we had planned. I like that they offered a 2 day for the price of 1 day aquarium package, which we would have done had we stayed another night. Every employee we saw was very friendly and helpful. We will absolutely return when in Monterey next.

    There is not so much to say about this motel, it is just one of many others on this road.

Pool was in february freezing cold, but the tub was warm and nice. Breakfast was as expected, hotel was fully booked, but staff did a good job. A surprise was, that we had a partly seaview, and I mean partly, but is rare to have that in a motel. Ask for a room on second floor in the same building as reception. Wholefood is in del monte center, 800 meters away. Motelprices in Monterey are in the high end, nothing to do about that, our prise was 113$ including tax. One more thing, rooms have no aircondition, not a problem in february, but might be uncomfortable in the summertime.

    We only had 1 night in November 2015 as part of a touring trip and this was a pre-booked hotel for us. The staff were very freindly and helpful but in terms of hotel quality I would assess this as pretty average. The room was clean, I was surprised at the small size of the bed considering this is America (it was the smallest of the 10 hotels we stayed in - a King size bed, 6 foot wide). The walls in the hotel seemed to be amzingly thin (and I would imagine in peak season it is extremely noisy) and being picky, the noise created by the bathroom extractor fan was a real pain - when trying not to wake my partner. The breakfast was complimentary and buffet style. The staff again were helpful and friendly but the food selection was again very average.

    it was the third time when we chose Best Western. and it was a big mistake. for us best western was like a signature of a quality, we stayed at Best Western in LA and in San Diego and Best Western there is not the same as in Monterey. 1) The window in bathroom. It was broken. to close it i had to put it off the previous opened position and to put it by hands to the closed position, not just slide. 2) we ordered a crib even at the stage of booking. when we arrived, they charged us immediately for crib, bur they brought it only after my call to the front desk. Baby was totally awake when i finally got my crib. 3) with the crib a man bought crumpled sheet with a big spot on it. It really felt like this sheet was not washed after their previous guests. And a spot!!! Guys, if i order a crib, it seems like i am going to put a baby in it! And you giving me a sheet with a spot. what was the nature of this spot?? 4) worst breakfest. this hotel spent 20$ for buying yougurt, plates and something else at costco for all guests. the one normal thing was waffles. there was no eggs. very poor coffee - too much water in it. everything was poor and extremely cheap. 5) at all other best western hotels a found a seal of a cleaness on the toilets - like a strip of a paper, but not at this hotel. and such things as shampoo and body washer - it was the cheapest one - the Dial. Very-very-very dissapointed in Best Western at all.

    I noticed most of the summer, the prices for motels in the Monterey and Carmel areas have been consistently high and it was no exception the weekend we went. Our room was $250, which was ludicrous but typical of all the motels around. PROPERTY: On motel row, within walking distance to the Del Monte Center and restaurants. It's also across a park that I never visited. The property looks old. We had no problem finding parking in the lot but you may need to park on the street if you're staying when its totally booked. ROOM: We got a room that had no floor above us. It was quiet and the size was good enough. The carpet needs to be updated along with other details, but overall, our room felt clean. The bed wasn't comfortable for me, but I can't pinpoint why. The bathroom had shampoo and soap dispensers in the shower. If you need conditioner, you need to bring it. There's no a/c, but a fan is included. We didn't need it as it was actually very cool when we came. SERVICE: Fine. Receptionist was courteous. BREAKFAST: We didn't try it but it looked like typical motel fare. VERDICT: Might consider staying here again.

    Great location, near all shopping needs, walk to Old Monterey historical area, great dining and relaxation spots. Starbucks and the Wharf are close by. Staff is fantastic, excellent complimentary breakfast and rooms are very comfortable.

    Price point for the value average for high traffic destination. Cleanliness and service a big plus. Ease of getting checking in exceptional. About 4 miles from the Aquarium. Would recommend to a friend or family wanting to stay in the area.

    « Best Western Park Crest Inn, Monterey »

    This Best Western was clean and comfortable, beds always seem to be an issue, this one was very comfortable. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. It's a little pricey, but otherwise enjoyable. I would consider it again, maybe with planning I could get a better rate.

    The hotel was clean and of average pricing for the area. Surprised to find no air conditioning in the room. It is close to the tourist type attractions, but not really within walking distance..over a mile.

    « Monterey CA stay for 3 nights »

    This hotel was very welcoming and the staff went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Esmeralda, the manager was extremely helpful and courteous. Our room had two bedrooms and worked well for us regarding privacy as we had my sister stay with us on this trip. We would stay here again

    « One night stop over »

    Heading south on PCH and wanted to do the aquariam so we spent the night here. It was clean and staff was very nice. It served our needs, but not the quailty of the Best Western Plus we left in Oakland.

    « Simple and Pleasant »

    I checked in at midnight for a business trip. The front desk staff that checked me in, Esmeralda, was pleasant and informative. My room was simple but clean and was just what I needed. It also didn't hurt that I didn't have to pay for wifi. I also appreciated how quiet it was. After a long day of driving, it was nice to curl up in bed to the quiet hum of the refrigerator.
