I couldn't check in until 3pm, I put out do not disturb sign so housekeeping called instead, slamming doors all the time mostly by housekeeping. Bad internet, almost useless. The hotel is very conveniently located and the room was clean.

don't miss this place, convenient location, great staff, comfortable rooms, excellent management - everything one needs for a comfortable visit to a cozy town. Don't miss the pool. Great breakfasts with lots of choices incl eggs, coffee, rolls, cereals, juices, and bacon.

We booked this room on Expedia after confirming directly with the hotel that we could add an extra rollaway bed for our extra person. However, upon checkin we were told that it was not possible. Our extra person ended up sleeping on the floor. Very cheesy, considering what we paid for the room! Breakfast was very average, with limited choices...

Just off the main strip in Carmel, so easy access to dinning and shopping. Convenient for Pebble Beach and Pacific Groves. The 2 disappointments were: the breakfast eggs are reconstituted, and our hot water ran hot for about 1 minute in the morning. Other than that we were on the 3rd floor with a balcony and ocean view. We could...

Love it! The location was great, and the rooms were clean and beautiful. The pool was clean, and neat. the people that work there are super nice and helpful. The only thing we didn't like was the fact that the room didn't have an AC system.

We have stayed at the BW Carmel Bay View Inn several times over the past dozen years. Always clean, comfortable and well located. Our most recent stay, July 2015, was marred slightly when we booked the family suite to accommodate our daughter and 18-month old grandson. When we rolled out the sofa bed we discovered a spring mattress that might...

Not spectacular, but a place were you park you car closed to you room ( by yourself ) with no major issues. Pricey like others around. Breakfast could definitely be better. Nice room, very clean. Location is definitely a must. We got a nice ocean view room.

Was down here one night for business. Many thanks to General Manager Joanna Napoli and Michael NIms. They couldn't have been more thoughtful and accommodating. I would definitely endorse this hotel for future guests.

The Best Western in Carmel is in a terrific location. Just one block from the main shopping area and if you walk down through the cute little shops, you will end up at an awesome beach. It's a little steep on the way back up and the total is about 2 miles round trip. The hotel rooms were very clean....
