My husband and I enjoyed staying at this updated property. We had a standard king room with a gas fireplace. It was attractive, clean and comfortable. The wifi reception was good. The breakfast had a good variety. The village with it's many shops and restaurants was a short walk away. We would definitely stay here again.

Right in the middle of Carmel, walk to shops and restaurants. Love the fireplace in the room. Friendly, very helpful staff at the front desk. Great rate for this price. Perfect place to stay and enjoy Carmel.

* Pool hours need to be open beyond 8pm. * Towels should be made available at the pool. The front desk provided towels, but also suggested that we'd be charged for them if they weren't in our room afterwards. That strikes me as distrustful and evidence of the management nickel-and-diming. * Carpeting in hotel rooms needs to be changed badly.... More

We were lucky enough to get the two room family suite. One room had two queen beds and the other room had a king bed and then there was a common area. The beds are comfortable and the room was clean. Just wish there would've been a TV in the common area so we all weren't so separated. The breakfast... More

This is the second time I have been to Carmel and the second time I have stayed at this Best Western. The rooms are lovely, complete with fireplace and fridge. Bathroom was large and very clean. Location is perfect for strolling through the gorgeous village of Carmel.

We went to Carmel during weekdays. The very helpful staff at front desk offered us an upgrade for $10 extra per night to get ocean view rooms. We got a room with partial mountain view and partial ocean view. Our parents' room had full ocean view. Well worth the money!! The room was very clean. We had a fire place... More

We had a good stay. Location and breakfast was excellent. We loved Carmel and will probably be back soon. The staff was very helpful in providing a rollaway bed for our four year old daughter. The only inconvenience we had was that they could not provide a crib for our one year old so she had to sleep with us... More

The location of this hotel is excellent within Carmel, however the hotel is dated and lacks appeal. Our room had a terrible mold smell in it. We were unable to change rooms without going from two queen beds to a king bed, which would not accommodate us. If you don't plan to spend much time in the room or on... More

What a cute place to stay! Perfect location, easy walk to see everything in Carmel. Clean, comfortable room. Fireplace was perfect for taking the chill out. Wonderful breakfast in a cute breakfast nook. People were friendly and helpful. Little grocery store right next door made it easy to get snacks and drinks. I would recommend this place to friends and... More
