We stayed here last weekend for just one night. The hotel is older but in decent shape. We didn't spend a lot of time at the hotel but the staff was pleasant and friendly. We had a covered parking space. The room had a fireplace. At first when I turned on the heater, the room didn't seem to be getting...

Beautiful place to stay and enjoy the California coast and great food !! Great for couples or family fun at the beaches and many parks in the area. Great golfing if you play. Enjoy the sea life in the bay or just playing or walking along the beautiful sandy beaches.

Excellent staff, excellent location! The rooms are clean and equipped with a fireplace and a mini-fridge. There is a mini-market next door. The location is within walking distance to all the nice restaurants, shops, and wine tasting rooms in the area.

Having stayed at other Best Western hotels, we were assuming that there would be a certain standard that we could expect, and so we booked the room before arriving. We were sorely disappointed by the substandard quality. Although the bathroom was modernized the water never went above lukewarm. The bed was OK but it sat in a room that needed...

This hotel is well within walking distance to the downtown area of Carmel....a big plus. Our room was a good size and clean, which is very important to us. From the hotel, we were able to walk all of Carmel ad down to the beach twice...never needing to drive our car once we got there. Our only small complaint was...

Though this is a Best Western and a standard no frills hotel---the rooms are spacious, the flat screen tv with full cable appreciated, the fireplace in the room, the nice bathtub/shower and comfortable bed (with plenty of outlets to charge electronics) makes this a nice place to stay. The only thing to quibble would be the upstairs rooms ---you could...

This is an older property, not a typical BW, just part of the billing/advertising chain. Typical downtown Carmel hotel/motel. If you want new and modern, you have to go out to Rte. 1. Our check in was smooth and we got what we booked. Carmel is always busy. This is near the top of the hill with little or no...

In tourist-filled Carmel, this is a very nice discovery--extremely clean and well-maintained, friendly, very well-located (a block or two from the very center of town), with good toiletries and really everything you could need, at very reasonable (off-season) prices. The people at the Front Desk are kind and polite, the rooms are immaculate, and in a town where so many...

Third time here. Very smooth check in to our balconied room. Great view from the balcony. Clean, neat, and well equipped. Breakfast has eggs and sausage, the internet is adequate. The location is close to many fine restaurants, for example, Casanova. Covered parking is available, but I don't know the terms. We'll be back.
