I love the proximity to the beach. I've stayed here several times and the quality and cleanliness is definitely not as nearly good as in the past . Outside areas very messy.

Sorry for your displeasure.

The room was clean except there was coffee in the coffee maker still and there was no coffee pot in either of our rooms. And the bedding kind of looked old.

Check-in and check-out ran very smoothly and the room was excellent. We were very pleased with our one night stay and would highly recommend this hotel. Breakfast was great, although the breakfast lounge got a little too crowded, but understandable as it was a long weekend. We will definitely stay here again.

The vending machine was completely out of bottled water. There were cobwebs in the corners of the room.

Spring Break 2018

First off, the staff at the front desk are friendly and welcoming. I was asked if I wanted a first or second floor room. I chose the first floor. The room was clean, which was nice. The best part was the breakfast in the mornings, my son enjoyed it.

Im very disappointed. The hotel advertised amenities to include shower and tub, but the tub had no stopper so could not be used as a tub and had no hot water until fixed hours later. The walls were thin and I could hear neighbors all night. There was mold on the wall and thee bedspread was all wrinkled giving a dirty feeling. There is a nice beach close but you still need to drive to it. I definitely would not recommend.

A gem off the beach

Pros: Location, Location, Location. The open door to the Monterey peninsula and at a Great Price. If you Love the ocean, this is a great place.
Cons: Toilet, could go to elongated and 16 inches high.
Location: Wow, tough to beat the gateway to Monterey. The ocean is two blocks and a Century 14 theater just down the highway. Golf courses (Poppy Hills, etc.)
We visit our kids in Salinas and have enjoyed this hotel for the second time. Upon arrival we were greeted in a friendly and courteous manner by the hotel staff. We were a little bit early but the Lady at the desk had a room (111) available and we could check in. This hotel is just two blocks from the ocean and is a great property. When we checked out the room it was right next to the stairs which made it easy to unload the car. Beautiful full room with a king size bed, a comfortable chair with foot stool, very comfortable. The bed had six pillows on it, ranging from a little firm to nicely soft. We had a TUB, fabulous after a long travel. It's big enough for two adults and a couple of glasses of wine. The towels are nice and fluffy, with soap and shampoo accompanying. We checked the king bed and it was perfect for us, clean sheets, nice cover and just right in comfort. The only concern that I would have would be the toilet, in that it was rather small for a guy, but functional just the same. I would recommend this Best Western to friends and family and when it comes to the AT&T golf tournament it will be on the top of my list. Enjoy, we did. . .
