Great location and large room with fireplace. Nice toiletries. Free parking close to the room. Breakfast is the standard buffet with limited options but enough for everyone. Eggs and some type of meat, waffles, cereal, pastries and fruit plus.

I loved the Best Western Carmel Bay View Inn. It was charming, clean, nicely updated, and within very close walking distance to town. The Best Western Carmel Bay View Inn was convenient and close to all of the shops and Beach. It is a terrific choice for downtown Carmel.

We stayed here one night on our drive up the coast. The room itself was nothing fancy, but the customer service we received here made our stay great. Michael at the front desk was really helpful when asked for restaurant recommendations and had a crib in our room within 5 minutes of checking in. The location was great too -...

Very disappointing experience, I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Overpriced, for what was received. Miss lead, was told it was a full breakfast, instead there was a breakfast where the coffee was cold, not even a piece of toast, not even a cold cereal. Danish and muffins that were frozen and stale.

We apologize that our breakfast was not our normal breakfast we offer while our breakfast room was being renovated. We had a make shift breakfast area in our lobby to try to supply some breakfast amenities. I am sure if you stayed again you would be pleased with the new breakfast room as it is back in order and has...

The location is prime for Carmel! Tons of restaurants, shopping galleries and the beach within a 10-15 min walk. The walls are thin, bring your white noise machine to sleep, but overall I had a great experience at this facility. And parking was fairly easy with a lot on site.

Clean room. Comfortable bed. Quiet. An older building. sort of quaint/dated but I appreciated the cleanliness. Staff were helpful and friendly. A good breakfast was included. Fair value for money and I would stay there again.

I would totally recommend this hotel. It was great value for money. Super clean, spacious rooms, free parking and wifi and a simple breakfast is included. The staff was great, everyone is helpful and cheerful. Super central too, maybe a 10 minute walk to the beach. Wouldn't hesitate to come back.
