Overall experience was wonderful, friendly staff, basic free breakfast (not complaining), in San Bruno, Ca, however, the pillows are so uncomfortable other than that I would recommend it, free parking!!!!
Very pleasant rooms on a beach front property. The beach is in a undeveloped area, and it would be unlikely to swim in the wild waves and wind. Room very well appointed. My son slept in a pull out bed, we each had a TV, and separate showers in one bathroom.
Every room gets their own golf cart to travel from the parking lot to their room and around the property.
We had appetizers and drinks during happy hour at the property restaurant, very decent for our dinner and good service.
My son really enjoyed the nightly bonfire, and socialized with other guests.
The front desk was very accommodating, polished, and welcoming. The check in time is 4 pm, but they called me at 2 pm to tell me our room was ready.
When I arrived in later afternoon, the desk clerk let me choose the location of my room, 1st or 2nd level, and accommodated me with a 2nd level room where I did not have to use stairs carrying a suitcase. My only disappointment was when I left the hotel and came back late in the evening, there were no parking spaces in the large parking lot. My only assumption was that some guests may have had multiple cars. I had to park on the street. This was on a Saturday evening. On the next evening (Sunday) there were many parking spaces available late in the evening.

Welcome to BEST WESTERN Beach Dunes Inn!Monterey, CA hotels are surrounded by the best of California like golden beaches and …More
I have been searching for the best hotel to suite my budget and at the same time meet my comfort and cleanness level. After reading lots of reviews different hotels, I finally decided to pick Holiday Inn Express Hotel, as it's not too far from Aquarium. I am glad I did, as my family all have good feelings toward this hotel after our stay in for just one night. The room size is good for our family. The bed tends to be a bit soft to me, but at least I could fall into sleep at night. I like the cleanness of the beds and also the bathroom. It provides a small refrigerator and a microwave, but we did not have a chance to use them. One down thing is, the air-con is too loud when it turns on, very disturbing my sleeping. I am glad we went in May, while the weather is perfect without the air-con. So we decided to turn it off for the night. We were assigned the 1st floor unit close to the main street, and it's still very quiet at night (which I like). Free parking and breakfast. One thing I need to mention, after I came back from the trip, I realized Holiday Inn charged me more than the receipt I had on hand. I did call the hotel and being informed that the amount would be updated in 3-5 business days. Then I waited for two more days and checked my credit card payments online. It does show the correct amount which matches with my receipt. I just don't understand why hotel charges me more before hand.
The Pacific Ocean, a small airport, and California State University at Monterey Bay border this community just north of Monterey. Marina Dunes State Beach is popular for hang gliding, sunbathing, kite-flying, and hiking over 70-foot sand dunes. Fishing and pleasure craft dot the harbor. Marina Dunes Preserve, just north of the beach, offers beaches and dunes reclaimed from a former sand mine.
