Did not honor Best Western Rewards card

Pros: Not much.
Cons: Fix the heater fan in room 106.
Heater fan in room was very very loud. Could nor sleep with heater fan on. Therefore, we slept with the heater off. It got cold in the room. If I turned the heater on, we again were kept awake. Continental breakfast was minimal. Sad. We usually stay in Best Western hotels due to the qualities of the hotel, the expansive breakfast, and of course, the Best Western Rewards card. It shouldn't matter where we got the reservation , but the fact that we stayed at a Best Western should be the criteria for acceptance of the card.

Dear denny I am sorry that you found the fan to be to loud in your room. If we had a room to move you to we would have been more then happy to move you. We do care about all our guest and want each and everyone's stay to be clean and comfortable. As for the best western rewards card, unfortunately you have to book through best western website or call the best western property directly in order to receive points. If you want to discuss this matter further feel free to contact us . thank you so much for staying with us.

Yuck!!!

I would not recommend this to families traveling on vacation.  The area was not family friendly.  The room was okay and it was clean.   The king bed only had two pillows and they could only provide one more.

Our room was perfect!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
My husband and I had been traveling for 2 weeks and we stayed in the Jr. suite here. There were two separate rooms with 2 televisions so a little alone time for each of us was wonderful! :). We had nice sized refrigerator and microwave and the bed was very comfortable. Highly recommended.

Comfortable Room, Nice Amenities

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, heated hot tub
We arrived early and I was happy to see our room was ready. The outside of the Hotel was clean and inviting. Rooms have a nice sized refrigerator and microwave. The few complaints I had were that the lobby smelled of curry, our remote for the TV did not work, (they fixed it), and the bedspread was stained pretty bad. We removed the bedspread, and the rest of the stay was comfortable.

I was pleasantly surprised!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
I was pleasantly surprised at how nice our room was. While the reviews had been very good I was skeptical. I was wrong. The room was very clean and spacious. We had a microwave and refrigerator which we did not expect! Also there was a diner next door as well as an In & Out Burger next to that. It was a bit slow checking in - my only negative. I definitely will return!

Met all expectations

I chose this hotel based on the price and what other reviewers wrote. I was very happy that the hotel was all that I had hoped for. The best part was the extremely comfortable beds and pillows. My kids loved the self-serve continental breakfast, especially the waffles.

Impressed

On a budget yet the beds were very comfortable. They were generous with their pillows and the comforter was so soft. We found it clean, courteous, and conveniently located of 101. It is not as close to Monterey as I was hoping, however. The breakfast had waffles and fresh fruit along with cereal and bread items.
