"Great budget option"
Most importantly, the place is clean and the location is excellent so there is no need to drive around for many things. The bed wasn't comfortable for my wife so she kept waking up, the bed feels like your typical cheap broken-into firm mattress that is no longer so firm. I didn't mind it and slept well. For the price the kind of bed is not unexpected. […] If you are picky about room temp then know that this place only has a heater and the thermostat is not in degrees so is hard to control. We turned it off as a result and were fine, maybe because we were second floor and had rooms adjacent on all sides. I don't think I'd try this place on a hot summer day.

"4min drive from warf-very comfy-sort-of breakfast"
The room was surprising great, very large. The bed was super comfy. Very clean. Its down the street from the Fisherman's Warf, if you don't mind a 4 min drive. The staff was super nice. And it had a little fridge and coffeemaker. No serious complaints. I would definitely stay there again, especially if I get a good deal. Now the bad stuff- I read the […] ratings and reviews and one of the draws was the breakfast. I am not sure we were at the same place as those people. Powered eggs, microwaved sausage, and toaster french toast was the highlight. Otherwise fruit, cereal, and donuts with coffee. That's it pretty much. In regards to the room - the tv was the old standard def kind, no big deal though. The biggest problem is around there most hotels, even the fancy ones don't have A/C, just a ceiling fan, so if you want air you leave the balcony door open. If you are in the back then you are above the parking lot and street, so early in the morning (about 5 am) you start getting car noise quite loudly. Also every time the people upstairs would open and close their balcony door, it was very load in our room. Oh and finally, there was no bathtub, just a shower, which I wish was told to me ahead of time as I had a baby with me. Don't know if it was just our room, or all the rooms though. Overall I liked it, and the complaints are minor. I think the good outweighs the bad by a long shot, and now I would know what to expect so I would be ready, like the terrible breakfast.

"Best Western Plus"
Older hotel located in about 2 miles from the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The rooms are fine, but you can hear through the walls. The staff at the front desk are not friendly, yet the maids go out of their way to say hello and are polite. The 2.2 rating is accurate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to all must-see sights"
This hotel was fabulous. I remember staying here years ago. This is one of the cleanest hotels I have been in. The price was great and the fireplace in our room was great. Will definitely be returning to this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We always enjoy our stay at Best Western Monterey. Only one minor flaw: The shower head located in the tub is mounted too high and is difficult to reach or to adjust. We are short people and makes it difficult to use. Maybe a hand-held shower head can be a solution.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

The bed was a bit bouncy and the walls were paper thin. Other than that it was a good enough place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient and good price"
Clean and comfortable. Reasonable price but breakfast was terrible.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff were nice but the room was old and not as clean as it could have been. There were some cobwebs on the ceiling and the bathroom floor was dirty. The bottom of the shower was peeling. The room had no air conditioning but did have a really old heating unit. The temperature control was on the wall near the front door and it was an old knob that […] was very loose. You could set the heat to low, 70, or high (those were the options). The other part of the heating system was across the room near the sliding door and it was a vent with another old, loose knob. It basically opened the vent and it was closed when I first checked into the room so the room was cold. It took me a while to figure out the heating vent needed to be opened. The location of the room was next to the check-in desk and I could hear staff talking to people as they checked in or as they were walking by. The elevators were close too and I could hear people getting off the elevator with their luggage or staff moving glassware. The staff would move clean drinking glasses from one place to another in carts and they would make very loud clattering noises. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"It wasn't Bad..."
It was ok... the breakfast wasnt that great... but the coffee is good. The hotel people was nice and warm. : ) Cleaning Staff is very polite. There was a loud room across the way from ours... but the guest at the hotel shouldn't reflect the people who work there. It's a clean place NO BED BUGS ... maintenance was a 3 because it seems that they are in […] the middle of rennovation of the halls. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Seeing the Aquarium?"
This hotel was a five minute drive from the aquarium and Cannery Row. The staff was very polite and checked us in and out quickly.

The front desk guy that checked us in was very rude! Never made eye contact and acted like we were interrupting up.

"Best Western + Monterey Inn was the BEST!"
The room was lovely ... very spacious...Great Bed... The free parking garage was great. The breakfast was good, nothing elaborate, but enough to get you going. We ate lunch and dinner out so we didn't need a heavy breakfast. An added plus ... GREAT WEATHER ... sunny w/ clear blue skies. The hotel is only minutes away from the Monterey Wharf...Cannery […] Row... American Tin Cannery Outlets... Monterey Bay Aquarium and EXCELLENT Restaurants. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My only complaint was that it was sort of a "noisy" hotel ... thin walls or something. We could hear our nextdoor neighbor snoring. (Fortunately I had earplugs!) Shower was a tight squeeze with not much water pressure. With all that being said, it was comfortable, clean, convenient, and yes, we'd stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Marred by a couple of serious flaws"
08/27/14 OdinCalifornia California
This hotel has a serious noise problem. The way the building is constructed transmits an unacceptable amount of both noise and vibration between rooms. I've never stayed at hotel where I've had so much disturbance from other rooms. At first, I thought the problem was inconsiderate other guests but then realized the just walking normally across the room was shaking my floor and thus ceiling of the room below. I would have found this problem unacceptable at a Motel 6. It should never happen at a 3 star. The other flaw is the lack of air conditioning. The room was hot because of this. With room being a busy street, we were faced with the choice of heavy street noise from opening the sliding glass door or being too warm. Aside from these flaws, the hotel has a lot going for it. Decor is good. The bed was conformable and had top-notch linens. Room was sizable. Bathroom was good. The location is close to downtown. If it weren't for the noise and lack of A/C, this would be good stay but because of these problems, I would not go back.
"Noisiest Night Ever Spent"
Noise......stomping, jumping, loud voices went on & on & on. We complained, but it still went on. There were way too many people to handle the breakfast room & the food was out most of the time. There was only one waffle maker, for the entire group, which jammed up the tiny room even more. Guests were out in the lobby trying to eat their breakfast. We have stayed at many hotels, & this one was a mistake......will never return.
"Excellent but overpriced"
Hey, Car Week at Monterrey. Didn't make reservations 6 months in advance. My bad. Paid thru the teeth 3 mos in advance. Paid $180 for Wednesday, but Thursday night was quoted as $450. Decided to drive home to Las Vegas, rather than pay $250 per night more.
"Noise or Heat?"
08/23/14 Camalia Baltimore, Maryland
Probably one of the worst night stays in memory. The temperature control for the room was non-existent and the temperature was set way to high. The only way to get comfort was to open the window, which meant road noise galore. Not the best choices to have to make. The room was okay, but the iron had not been cleaned in a long while. That's a problem if you are traveling for business. I could have ruined my outfit, fortunately I ran the iron through a towel first and all the gunk ended on the towel not my clothes. Finally, the staff was not very friendly at all, not at check in and certainly not when I was voicing my complaints about the heat in the room and the dirty iron. Worst of all, while my work colleague was checking out a young boy wanted to ask the receptionist a question. She told him he had to wait, then turned to me and asked me how she could help me. I suggested that she wanted to take care of the boy first. He asked for a bathroom and she said they didn't have any. I found that hard to believe, but worse her tone was just smug. I will not be staying here on any repeat business trips to Monterey, that's for sure.
"Too much unwanted noise"
08/23/14 Peter S United States
Hotel has thin walls and floors, which failed to prevent noise transmission between adjoining rooms. You hear people walking heavily in floors above and snoring neighbors sound like they’re in the same room. Too noisy to sleep and the staff failed to address the problem when I requested a room change.
"Room was excellent, but lacked air conditioning!"
08/21/14 Angelina R Newark, CA, United States
We enjoyed the king sized bed, excellent pillows, and clean room. The spacious room included two tables with comfortable chairs. Too bad the evening was warm that made the room up to 77 degrees; good that there was a sliding door to open for fresh air.
"Is it really a "Plus" ???"
08/18/14 Barbara C Mission Viejo, California, United States
I was rather disappointed in this hotel, especially since it is listed as a BW Plus. Our early arrival after several long hours of driving (around noon) was met with a surly response that we could come back at 3 for check-in. No smile, no "I'm sorry, the room just isn't ready.." just a very curt comment to come back later. Once checked in after 3 (by someone who actually smiled and was very helpful with area directions), we realized that there is no air conditioning and the so-called upgraded view room we were given on the second floor was hot almost all night. A fan was eventually offered, but there already was a ceiling fan which didn't do much. (Other guests we met on the elevator were also complaining about the lack of air conditioning.) The room was clean, but the furniture was very "average hotel" standard, and not really that comfortable. There was a fireplace, which probably would be wonderful in winter, but didn't do much for a summer stay. Breakfast was OK, but the only addition to the normal Best Western breakfast fare of waffles and hard boiled eggs was some scrambled eggs and the pre-cooked bacon. The breakfast room, complete with wobbly tables, was very small and could only accommodate a few guests at a time. Having stayed at numerous Best Westerns and Best Western Plus establishments, this hotel seems to be a regular Best Western that tried to throw in a few mediocre touches so it could claim to be a Plus hotel to get more money for the rooms from average tourists. Too bad.....
"RIGHT ON A BEAUTIFUL BEACH"

LOVE this hotel and am looking forward to future stays. It is ON the beach, and it is very clean and comfortable. Every staff member was friendly, helpful and professional. We had a great time here and next visit we'll definitely spend more time and visit the restaurant.

My wife and I were in Monterey to visit grandson at the Defense Language Institute. The location was in close proximity and besides being clean, nice, etc. it afforded us the opportunity to make the most of our visit.
08/16/14 monica h Tucson, Arizona
I read reviews when I booked this hotel and after staying there, think the reviews are overrated. It's real average. Nothing special. Desk staff not particularly friendly. Stayed near the front desk on the first floor, got to hear a screaming kid out in the hallway most of one morning when we were trying to sleep. So noise carries from the hallway. There's a breakfast with the room and it's just okay, again, nothing special. Nothing to bring me back to this hotel, next time I'm in the area.
