Reserving and checking into the hotel was easy. The hotel location is great- near shops and restaurants. It is convenient to have the small grocery/market nearby. We found the hotel to be well run and clean. The pool is heated!

If you like to park for the evening and walk to dinner, or take a morning walk after breakfast, this is the location for you. The building is older, typical of Carmel, but kept very clean and the bathroom is updated. Comfortable, but not fancy, for your stay.

I used to live near the beach many moons ago. Spending the last 15 years in the desert southwest has made me forget how different life on the coast is. When I first discovered a lack of AC in my room, my reaction was, "Really?" Then I had flashbacks to life at the beach, no AC, ceiling fans for cooling.... More

This hotel is has very nice, quiet rooms. They had organic toiletries which was a nice surprise. The room was large and we had a balcony with an ocean view. Breakfast included warm food along with the basic's. The bed was very comfortable, and the location was very central. We were able to walk everywhere. I would stay here again.

This is an older motel and the furnishings and sloping floors indicate there is deferred maintenance throughout. The breakfast room is small and the many voices echo off the walls. If you are on the top floor you may have a view of the Bay. The musty smell lingers even after you leave the room. The one positive factor is... More

We stayed here for two nights during Spring Break, and it was the perfect place for a couple with two teenagers. Our suite had a separate room for our king-sized bed, and we had our own bathroom. Our teens had a fold-out bed and their own bathroom -- all with an ocean view. The hotel was within walking distance of... More

I think that location is perfect. Room and breakfast is nice. I like the design of the room and the lobby. This hotel is good for children as well. The swimming pool is beautiful. Parking is very narrow, but it is ok.

I spent two nights at the Carmel Bay View Inn on a trip up through Big Sur with my college age son who was on spring break. I booked it because it seemed more reasonably priced than other Carmel alternatives, but still got very good reviews. In the event, it was very nice indeed. We were in a two room... More

Great value for Carmel, CA. David does superb job of hosting his guests. Location is near restaurants and shops. The rooms at the top of hotel have terrific views of coastline and ocean. Most rooms have fireplaces and exterior private balcony.

Loved the 5th floor suite with 2 bathrooms and separate bedroom. The huge balcony, double sliders, and fireplace are a large bonus. Living room furniture comfortable. This room/hotel really needs a bigger room-refrigerator and a microwave would be nice. Breakfast was excellent. Overall value excellent.
