Monterey Beach Dunes Inn

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Honestly - this place was a dump. The room was horrible - lights didn't work, was completely run down - stains on carpet and chairs. The room was very small and cramped. Even simple things like a sign hung on a door was completely crooked - it's like - does the management even care about this place?

I liked that staff was very nice, I love that we where so close to the Ocean. Staff was very helpful to guide us t where we can eat and visit.

It is walking distance to a state beach park and close to Monterey.

My little one LOVED that fresh donuts were served as a part of the continental breakfast. There were so many great options - hard boiled eggs, yogurt cups, fruit cups, cereal, fresh fruit. We had forgotten a few pieces of clothing in our room upon checkout. Housekeeping turned them into the front desk who then called us to let us know. It was much appreciated!

Very quiet. Close to the Dunes. Nice spa. Clean - easy access from highway

Small rooms. Small beds. Property had a lot of trash on it and uncovered trash cans were full.

This hotel rooms are much smaller and need a lot of updating for the price they run a night

Bed was like a rock and pillows were unmanageable. Shower alternayed from ice to scalding. Road noise was steady. People partying on floor below each night made it difficult to sleep

Too expensive at $250. Very loud, too close to freeway. Room dated and run down. No shower curtain. Tv not functioing well. Horrible coffee maker. And breakfast starts too late at 7am. I had to be out before 7! Also no elevator and it's three levels.

Close to the beach, but not too well kept up. We had no shower curtain then, when it did come after second request; the shower did not work anyway. Overall mediocre breakfast options, old beds, tv somewhat dysfunctional. When mentioned to desk, they were apologetic - and that was all.

Close to the beach. Got to check in early Easy access to room Found a pain pill on the floor by the t.v. Addressed it to the manager in the morning. Also, a tank top by the chair. Obviously not a well vacuumed room.

Nice hotel close to the beach, friendly front desk staff,

The room was dirty. It appearred as though the room was not used in a long time. There was sipder webs on light fixtures and lamp shades. There were layers of dust on the alarm clock, lamps, and night stands. There were some sort of small wrapper on the night stand. I had to wipe it down with paper towel before leaving my cell phone on it. The rocking chair was from the 80s and the drywall was falling apart from someone banging it with the rocking chair. There were dead bugs on the bathrrom floor. The vent on the heater/ac had thick layers of dust build up. Was put in a handicap room and had to bend down to shower because shower head couldn’t be raise any higher. Breakfast was a JOKE. We over heard other people in the breakfast toom talking about how dirty their rooms were too. Would NEVER stay gere again! Told the manager before leaving but I’m sure she already knew if she ever checked the room.

Stained bedding, dirty chairs, horrible mattress. I wanted to pack up as soon as we got there
