We usually stay here when we visit Carmel. The location is very good--quiet but an easy walk to restaurants and shops. Our room had a huge balcony, a fireplace, and a distant view of the ocean.The breakfast was pretty good and the staff were competent and responsive. This is a very good value.

This is a great place to stay, park your car, and walk Carmel by the Sea! It is a good value and fantastic location. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Those are the most important factors for me. The bed was comfortable, good quality and we rested well after fabulous days of beautiful coastal activities.

Traveler beware - be sure to request that you not be placed on same level as where breakfast is served. Rooms not as modern or nice as ones on other floors (carpet, bed furnishings were dated compared to rooms other family members were staying in) and because view is partially obstructed and room sort of dark, not really pleasant to...

The room was quite small and there was only a 2x2 foot corner table to work on. The TV was not a flat screen so the TV enclosure took up a lot of space. There was a nice fireplace in the room for effect. The only heat source was a small and not sufficient. Also just to note the only... More

The Room looked like it was Remodeled last week! Spotless! Had a Fireplace and a good View. Bathroom was extra nice. Great location for Shopping too. Ocean Ave is only 1 block away and has Art Shops, Clothing stores and Restaurants. My only complaint is, its an older building so its very noisy.

It was hard to beat the price, which we probably caught on a lucky day of searching online. We will definitely consider it again in the future, even if we had to pay a little more. The location was perfect, especially with free parking (which was kind of tight), we generally walked everywhere. Pros-location, price, parking, remodeled bathroom, gas fireplace.... More

So glad we picked this motel: park the car and walk this beautiful town from the shops and restaurants to the beach. It is a charming small motel that reminds me of those in New England. Yes, some things are dated, but nothing major and the breakfast was great. The front desk guys were friendly and helpful. A bargain!

This Hotel is so clean, quiet, friendly, and worth the money. Beautiful view of the Sunset! Love the fireplace in the room. The Breakfast was HUGE and I left with a full belly. You too will be Happy you stayed the Night with Best Western Plus!

Room #44 - easy access from parking and to the breakfast room. Our room had an updated bathroom with instant hot water which was very pleasant. Towels were mid-range plush. The room was a standard size hotel room. It was a side room but we could still see the ocean. Too far away to see the waves or hear it.... More

right next to beach and boardwalk. Wonderful room with everything we needed Warm cookies, appetizers, and a breakfast basket in the morning. The weather was beautiful in January. We will stay here everytime we are in the area. Good waves for surfing right in front. Thank, Jim & Denise
