We stayed here for one night in a ocean view balcony room. Hotel is a basic motel, dated with maintenance problems associated with a building of its age. The room was very hot and stuffy no air con here necessitating the doors to balcony to be open. A lot of noise is going on nearby till late due to its... More

Carmel is an overpriced place to stay considering hotel rates. In this sense, this hotel seemed to be a good deal, considering we paid under 200 usd. The rooms were dated, with old carpets that were a nightmare for a person with breathing sensibility. The free breakfast was served in a small room that was super crowded, making us to... More

A very nice hotel with spacy rooms. The breakfast is not god though and it is served with plastic cutlery and paper plates and mugs! Terrible and not very environment friendly.... I thought I had seen this kind of irresponsible attitude towards recycling five years ago,whenI visited Best Western hotel in Florida, but obviously not.

Nothing special about this motel. The location is nice. It's convenient to walk downtown. It's November and I find the room really stuffy and warm. There's no air conditioning or venting system. I had the windows open until it got dark. It was pretty noisy from people walking by and the refrigeration system from the market next door is pretty... More

After a long day of driving, we arrived at the Carmel Bay View Inn and first impressions were that it was really cute! The front desk staff was really pleasant and helpful. We booked a double, ocean view balcony room and were given room 43. The room had a very large balcony with a dining table and 2 lounge chairs.... More

Recently stayed three at the Best Western Plus on Junipero in Carmel. Large room on the second floor with a nice fireplace and beautiful white shutters on the windows. Good breakfast, employees all seemgred to really care about doing their jobs well, great location, ample parking. Also right beside Bruno's Market, excellent grocery/deli.

We stayed at this hotel and while the room was fine there were several really poor aspects. First of all there was no toilet to use when we tried to check in and we were sent to a public one in the park as our room wasn't ready. But the thing that we thought was particularly poor was the breakfast... More

We upgraded and our room was gorgeous. Fireplace, chairs and table and a balcony with a bench. It was misty, so not a view of the ocean more brief glimpses. There was a convenience store next door and Carmel town was a 3 minute stroll away. The breakfast was the best we had during our entire visit! Wish we had... More

Breakfast is all self-served and while ok the actual room is too small and poorly organized. It is a shame as this could be outstanding venue a better... More
