We arrived in Carmel pretty early in the day, we stopped by the front office where the staff was friendly and informed us our room wasn't quite ready, but offered to call us when the room was ready. We went out and grabbed a bite to eat, luckily the front desk called to tell us we were able to check...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I stayed four nights at the Best Western Carmel Bay View Inn for the Big Sur Marathon in April 2017. The location was extraordinary, close to restaurants, shops, and a short walk away from the beach (don't miss the sunset). The room was cozy and very clean, with a very comfortable king bed, a decent, modern bathroom and a private...

Always enjoy visiting Carmel, and this hotel is perfectly situated if you want to enjoy exploring the town by foot as the town literally starts right out side your bedroom door! The room we had was spacious, with a large balcony, great view, fireplace and plus it was all very clean.

I love the lager rooms and view. I feel its the best in Carmel for the money. I always try to book here first. I have stayed at many places in Carmel and this is the best quality by far. Its in a perfect spot and close to dinning.

We booked a beautiful 1 bed suite with sea view balcony and it did not fail. We bought a bottle of wine from the shop around the corner and thoroughly enjoyed the balcony view of the sea. Easy walk to the beach and the town for dinner. Very comfy bed and bathroom facilities. 1 slight annoyance was that they could...

Great central location with all the shops, restaurants and beach walkable and plenty of parking. Very pretty and well kept with beautiful hanging baskets and flower plant pots. Reception had coffees and teas to take out. Check in was simple, allocated a first floor room which was nicely decorated, clean and fresh with a lovely fireplace for the chilly evenings....

2nd year staying here. The rooms were even bigger this year. Special request to have ground floor rooms next to each other was done. Like the Keurig coffee maker in the lobby. Nice fire place that stays on. Windows that open for fresh air.

Decent room and view. Hotel was under construction with the carpet of all the rooms above us being ripped out. Needless to stay it was pretty loud all day long. Parking was okay until the construction workers double parked. Construction aside, this is a decent place to say. The partial view of the bay was a plus.

I was pleasantly surprised with hotel upgrades and cleanness of the room. The staff is very nice and polite. The breakfast could've been better. I missed cream cheese. Also like in all other BW hotels I stayed the pillows weren't comfortable for me. Otherwise everything was perfect.

Room was nice. It was a rainy night so having the fireplace in the room to cozy up to was a treat. The breakfast area was a bit difficult to find. No signs, just have to remember what the front desk told you the night before. Weather limited our ability to enjoy the area.
