“An ocean view and private balcony.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2012

Although there were cheaper rooms in the motel, we opted for a king bed room with an ocean view. It came with a balcony that over looks the bay, fridge, coffee maker, excellent wifi, a gas fire place and a quality breakfast selection. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Close to the centre of town and easy access to the beach, either a walk down the hill or drive to the all day carpark. Wish we had more time to stay.

Room Tip: Room 46, ocean view, great for a romantic weekend.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012

Frequent visitors to Carmel/Monterey. I booked through Orbitz bad move better room avail. at same location (but also had a view)thru AAA for $15 dollars less. We usually frequent the properties on upper San Carlos but good reviews tempted us to try this location. ROOM was clean, spacious and comfortable, but beginning at 05:00 the street noise started, if you are an early riser this will be just fine.First the street cleanner, a then trash pick up and followed by large delevery trucks and the strret cleaner again. This propererty also ofeers a hot breakfast which is a nice touch. However we did not have an oppertunity to try this as the breakfast room was woefully small for the occupancy numbers of this place People were standint to eat.
A plus is convience to down town shopping. Iwould not stay here again

Room Tip: Stay on upper san Carlos less noisy

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

Both times we stayed it was very nice, first time we stayed on the upper floor which was nice that room had a fireplace. The second time around we were on a ground floor without a view except of the parking lot, but still very nice room by the office. Walking around the town area was easy, had dinner at Jack London's bar and grill.
Another must do is, the 17 mile drive.....

Room Tip: Do try and get a upper room with a view.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

This Best Western hotel could compare to many of the high end hotels like Marriott or Hyatt Hotels. No this Hotel does not have a great restaurant on site, but with so many great restaurants around who cares. Next door to this hotel is a great deli and liquor store that caries great wines. The room, king bed, fireplace with ocean view, was fantastic! The bedding was great and the room was large as was the balcony. You could easily set 6 adults on the balcony and the ocean view was great with the ability to see for miles looking to the south down the cost line. As for being clean this room gets a 10 from me, even the TV remote was in a bag and had been sterilized, everthing here was spotless! This Hotel gets a 10 from me!

Room Tip: Spend the extra and get the Ocean view room.

We stayed here for one night after going to the Monterey Bay Aquarium in the day time. Camel is one town over so not far at all. Maybe 10 minutes. Good variety of restaurants within walking distance. We also walked down to the beach from the hotel. Although, it is downhill to the beach, meaning you will eventually go uphill, it's still not a bad walk. The room itself seems to have gone through some renovations. Flat screen tv. Old Armoire now holds the fridge and coffee maker. Free breakfast in the morning was pretty decent. French toast was nice.
