I really wanted to stay at the Rio Sands Motel, but since they have remodeled their prices have gone up quite a bit and since traveling there for only one night decided to stay at the Best Western SeaCliff which was a better rate.
Nice large room with two queen beds, garden/pool view nice but worth extra for one night? Walls paper thin, could hear TV from next door room clearly. Breakfast buffet a plus, even better when not raining so you can sit outside on the patio overlooking pond w/koi fish.
Can walk to beach but better to drive if you are carrying beach stuff and picnic supplies.
Nice pool and hot tub too. Beautiful grounds. Peaceful.

My husband and I stayed one night here. We ate at the restaurant at the hotel. The food was cold and the staff seemed irritated that we came for a late dinner. Our waitress came to ask if we wanted desert so the "desert guy" could go home- we were not even done with dinner! There was some sort of party in the next room, walls are thin!

Overall this hotel is a nice property; Beautiful grounds, great food, clean rooms, great location, just what one needs from a hotel. My only suggestion would be a change od staff. I have stayed multiple times at this property and it seems like management is going from better to worse with their staff selection. The last time I stayed was Aug 2011 and was stronly satisfied with the service I received. I was Welcomed, Acknowledge, and Thanked for staying. I wished I had the same thing to say for my latest stay (Dec 2011). I immediately notice a change of staff. Specially after not feeling welcomed upon arrival. The staff was rude, clueless, and had no customer service what so ever ( even though two claimed to be supervisors and assistant managers; not a very good representation for such a big hotel chain)

My wife and I just returned from a visit to the Monterey area and we stayed at Best Western Plus for one of the nights. We booked directly with Best Western and the senior rate with breakfast was about $100. Here are some pros and cons of this property:
Pros: Reasonable rate for area, staff at front desk and others were very nice and helpful, the rooms surround a garden-like area with pool, koi pond and other amenities and the breakfast included with the rate is above average with scrambled eggs, bacon, waffle and usual fruits and cereals, free newspaper at breakfast.
Cons: Hotel is next to highway one and units numbered in the 100s and 200s receive the most highway noise, the heating and air unit is a wall unit and can be noisy, and rooms are somewhat small.
If you want minimal noise choose rooms numbered 400 and above. We stayed in 205 and it had highway noise but it wasn't too bad. Overall it was a nice experience although I might look for an alternative if I return but it may take a more expensive site.

Room Tip: As noted in review choose rooms numbered 400 and above to minimize highway noise.

We stayed here after our wedding as well as most of the wedding party. Stayed here 2 nights around NYE. We had a double room in the 500's. Close to the bar and pool. The bathrooms are a little small here, but the complimentary breakfast makes up for it. They even give you ticket vouchers off your meal at Severino's if you sleep in past the complimentary breakfast. The hotel is really close to the freeway, the beach and Santa Cruz. My only complaint is the beds were pretty hard and uncomfortable.

Room Tip: Rooms in the 600's upstairs are close to the pool and bar.

Not the best hotel we've ever stayed at, but not bad. It's about what you would expect from a Best Western. Inexpensive, clean room, comfy beds (though the pillows were a bit lame). It was nice, though, having a free hot breakfast every day, even if it was the same stuff. It beats wrapped Svenhardts pastries! The hot tub was VERY nice, especially in the cold January night.

There were a few problems though, but mainly minor ones. Two out of the three days there, they forgot to give us a bag for the ice bucket. The front desk staff was pretty much useless for the few things I needed: when I asked about free movies (as their in-room binder suggested there were -- they were on a page talking about free amenities) the girl at the counter looked at me like I was stupid. When I went to the counter to get aforementioned ice bag, she said they didn't have any and offered me a regular plastic bag instead.

Their Wi-Fi, while free, was laughably slow. It may be because my room was about as far from the front of the hotel as you could be, but it was difficult to get much done.

Overall, the stay was fine. The hotel is by no means memorable, though it is pretty. If you are looking for somewhere to stay that isn't bad, then go here. If you are looking for an experience, this is not the place for you.
