This Best Western is most conveniently located at the top of the town, with many view units. We were over the lobby and had a pleasant aspect of the pool and the sun playing on the attractive flower boxes. Breakfast, a la you make it yourself (including waffle iron) was included on the third floor, al fresco if you wished,... More

Reasonably priced for area, good bed, small bathroom, breakfast was basic with hot n cold but exactly the same each morning, parked car n walked everywhere. Staff very helpful. Only an elevator to breakfast room. Didn't use pool but looked very inviting.

The ocean view king suites are fabulous at this hotel. There is a big balcony with a view of the ocean and Carmel. The people in the office are helpful and friendly. Some rooms at this hotel are just regular motel rooms. The really great rooms are the ocean view rooms. (2 queen rm 43 and king rm 47) and... More

Nice room, good price, but the problems stack up from there. I stayed in the downtown Monterey Best Western Plus not two nights ago, and the noise of the place was horrific (go read that review if you wish). But I could have only hoped that this place was better, but I was very wrong. And I have tried to... More

We very much liked the room bed, furniture, TV, refrigerator, very large terasse and the view of Carmel. Enjoyed also the continental breakfast and the proximity to restaurants and the main corso (Ocean Avenue) of Carmel and the beach

This is a beautiful property at the top of Ocean Ave. There is an inviting pool area. Views of the ocean from many rooms. The decor is attractive and the rooms have many amenities. Clean and comfortable and very quiet.

We were only in Carmel for one night, and really just needed a place to sleep. The best Western did the job. Pro - room was good...spacious, comfortable. Good value for money. Right next to a small supermarket and short walk to the rest of town. Polite, friendly and helpful front desk staff. Con - the hotel was a little... More

This hotel was much more than we expected. Very well maintained with friendly & most helpful staff . Location is ideal for walking into town or beach. Large rooms, nice pool and decent breakfast. Carmel - by- the- sea is in a world of charm all its own and this place suits it perfectly.
