Last minute stay - no plans for the night. A staff member at a local wine tasting room recommended this. Request a 3rd or 4th floor room for a fantastic view and balcony. Room 26 has a gigantic balcony!!

Seems to be par for a best western. Nothing fancy, but it's clean and in a great location in downtown Carmel (walking distance to everything). Looks like newly renovated bathrooms. Not much parking, but we lucked out. It's pricey for a BW, but location makes up for the cost.

We live just 40 miles from Carmel so we love a quick one night getaway several times a year. We try to stay at a different place each time we go, but always within the village. Through Trip Advisor and Booking.com we got a rate of $129 for the Monday night of President's weekend (just after the AT&T Pebble Beach... More

We have only been to this hotel as a couples getaway. It would work for families as well. Great breakfast in the morning included. We had the kingsize suite with the fireplace which was very cozy. This hotel location is walking distance to shopping, dining and the beach. When we visit Carmel we will always stay at Best Western PLUS... More

I always stay here when visiting Carmel, whether on business or pleasure. It is conveniently located within easy walking distance to town shops and restaurants. It's relatively quiet and always very clean. The rooms at the upper level have nice views. The included breakfast is nice - nothing fancy, but adequate. Staff is friendly and helpful. It isn't fancy, but... More

Enjoyed staying in this Best Western in Carmel. Location was great. We had a room with a fireplace and a balcony and enjoyed some incredible sunsets over the ocean since we had a partial view of the ocean as well. Just down the street we were able to walk down to the beautiful beach with the white sand! Great little... More

The rooms were spotless and had great amenities. The location in town couldn't have been better. No need to drive as walking was the best mode of transportation. Within walking distance the choice of restaurants, shopping & courtyards was fabulous.

This is our favorite place to stay in Carmel. Always clean rooms and great breakfast. Close walking distance to everything in Carmel. Right next door to Bruno's market for deli sandwiches for beach picnics.

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.
