Simple, but good for the price

The hotel is really close to both the 17 mile drive and the Aquarium, it's just a short drive, less than 5 minutes. The room was a little noise though and since I'm quite sensitive to noise that was a bad thing for me. You can almost hear the other guests's conversations. Oh, and the pool is really really small, it can only fit 8 (if I'm recalling it right) people at a time. Besides these two little things, it's a good hotel for a one or two nights stay.

OK in Monterey

Reservation was in order, the room available immediately, and it was fine. The location is good, and in a quiet neighborhood. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast room was small, crowded and hot. It was raining outside so guests had either to sit outside at the tables provided there, or cart their food back to their rooms.

Take an umbrella to breakfast with you. There are few lunch or dinner options within reasonable walking distance.

Comfortable & Convenient

I was in Monterey for a golf tournament. The Best Western Park Gardens was affordable, Comfortable and convenient. Since I was away playing golf most of the time a comfortable place to sleep and clean up was perfect.

decent hotel for overnight stay

This is a good hotel for an overnight stay in Monterey. No frills, reasonably priced. A short drive to downtown, Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row. Room was clean, staff was friendly. The best part was the bed, so comfortable!!!
