We arrived on September 23rd and I soon realized my error in booking a smaller room. The night administrator, Victoria was extremely helpful and very courteous despite my husband’s frustration. She moved us to a larger room with 2 double beds immediately and thus solved the problem. She also recommended a great restaurant for the evening. The food was delicious. The level of professionalism and kindness was exceptional. I loved this small homey lodging. The complementary breakfast was nice and tasty. The manager, Esmeralda was helpful with information about the surrounding area. When I travel, I look for more than ritzy surroundings. I look for friendliness, cleanliness, and great customer service. The Best Western Park Crest Inn provided everything I desired in a hotel. I highly recommend the Park Crest Inn.

Hotel's Favourite
I had forgotten I had been here before, years ago. This time around, I really enjoyed my stay. It started with a warm, friendly receptionist. She was the kindest person I encountered on this travel day and she gave me a free upgrade on my room. The second floor room surprisingly provides partial views of the bay. Wow. I wasn't expecting that. The furnishings appeared updated, the room was clean, and the fridge was in good working order. There's a wall heater/ac unit that functioned well. The hotel is within walking distance to restaurants. Parking felt cramped and when I awoke early morning the next day, all the spots looked filled. Location is convenient - near PCH, Monterey attractions, and close to a shopping center. I would totally stay here again.

I honestly don’t understand why this motel has such a high rating. It was by far the worst place we stayed in during our 3 week trip in the US. Unfortunately it was also one of the most expensive at nearly €400 (!!!) a night . For that amount of money I expect a quiet room at the very least. Room 165 is far from quiet. We could literally hear the people next door moving around, coughing and talking. In 3 weeks we were never in a room that was this noisy. The lady at the front desk said she doesn’t go into the rooms, so wouldn’t know, which seems an odd response. She also said this has never come up as an issue with other guest, which I find hard to believe (also because it is mentioned in other reviews ). It was a connecting room and I think the connecting door let a lot of the sound through. Tip for management: do not put 2 unrelated families in these connecting rooms. The front door had quite a large gap at the bottom (see picture, you can see the light coming in), so we also got to enjoy all the outside sounds, like the busy road, and guests coming and going. The AC is super loud and makes a sound like an old engine. Our room smelt like bleach; we had to leave the door open to air it out. The bathtub was missing it’s plug and had what looks like mold in the drain, but to be fair it could be scale accumulation. There was metal plating under and around our bed that made a very loud plopping/popping noise every time the person on the left side got in and out of bed (he is a mere 70kg). There are no elevators to the 2nd floor. Apparently this could have been known to us because booking.com did not list the presence of elevators- or so the lady at the front desk told us. The only redeeming qualities were the temperature of the pool and the proximity to Chopstix, a very decent Vietnamese place just up the street. Just don’t stay here. For €400/night I’m sure there are many better places to be found, even during the weekend.

Our stay here was good. 3 night stay. We agreed to housekeeping, they did a good job with that. Front desk staff very friendly as well. Love that everything is close by (less than 30min) the aquarium, wharf, there’s even a shopping center right down the street…with a Starbucks!

My son loves pools and hot tubs, so we booked two nights at this Best Western during our stay in Monterey. On the plus side, the room was clean and bedding was comfortable. On the downside: The floors creaked making it hard not to wake up sleeping family members at night. The bath tub faucet was mislabeled (hot was cold and visa versa) and the bathroom door would not close shut. The refrigerator we used to chill our food actually froze them instead and when I went to adjust the temperature, the dial fell off. And that pool and hot tub my son wanted to play in? The pool was very cold and the hot tub looked as if every little kid who couldn't use the pool had pissed in it. Tripadvisor definitely let us down on this recommendation.
