After looking at many hotel and B&B options in Carmel stayed here for one night based on reviews. Although I normally stay at more upscale brands, this was a winner. Friendly staff at check-in, free parking for guests, and the best part is that it is in the middle of downtown and we had an ocean view- all for under...

Friendly and helpful office staff who gave me 5 star service. The location was great too. The room was exceptionally clean and the decor attractive. The bathroom was large and beautiful. The only drawback was the loud heater and crowded breakfast room. I liked the little fireplace in the room too. By the way, loved "The Forge" across the street...

Roomy, super-clean rooms, great king mattress and bedding, good and adequate breakfast, great office staff, super convenient location! Plus gorgeous plants and flowers all around the property. They worked with us to accommodate three generations in multiple rooms.

This is the perfect cozy get-a-way, with a beautiful romantic in room fireplace. It was walking distance to all the little shops in town, and only a short drive to Monterey and 17mile drive. I loved my stay and will be back soon.

The Location is right in the heart of Carmel. The staff are friendly and the rooms are clean. It looks like the bathrooms have been recently renovated. Breakfast starts at 7 am is pretty good. The parking is motel style but the spots are very narrow but at least it's free. The room we had was average but the beds...

Great location and very good week day value (weekend cost doubles). Room and bathroom clean; however, carpet is old. Staff very helpful and cleaning staff is very good. Overall a very good value. Easy 2-6 block walk to restaurants & shops.

Enjoyed the fireplace....lovely perk! Tv was fine for basic stations but movie rental with DVD/on demand was not an option. Found a movie on TV after town shut down around 6pm. Water views were a view from 3 blocks away in the distance.... barely water views but fine for our quick one night stay. Breakfast muffins were great!

Nicely maintained older typical dated inn for the region with wonderful view of Pacific Ocean 3/4 mile away. Multi-levels with no view from lower levels, so ask for room with a view if that is what you want. Clean and comfortable room. Walking distance to what you want to visit in this rare gem of a hamlet.

I am very pleased with my stay in BW Bay view hotel. Nice size room with fireplace, clean bathroom with a big bathtub, lovely breakfast room, close to downtown and a short walk to the beach, covered free parking - all of this on a top of very budget friendly price! Will come back and recommend to anybody. You cannot...
