For this area this is an average hotel but nice just the same. You can spend a lot of money on a accommodations in this town. This was a very affordable rate for this time of season with a hot breakfast. Short walking distance to down town. Linens were soft and fresh. Everything was clean and quite. WiFi was slow... More

The buildings and rooms are a little dated, but well kept and clean. Easy walking distance to all of Carmel, but Carmel is small. Avoid Carmel on the weekends, it becomes way to busy and parking can be a trial. Calls itself " View Inn" but unless the top rooms had a view, we never saw one. It looked like... More

The Carmel Bay View Inn is an attractive place to stay. The staff are wonderful and it's such a close walk to shops and excellent restaurants. My dad stayed in the handicapped room and forgot his binoculars. The staff was fabulous about retrieving them and sending them back to him a couple states away. Such a pleasant experience in a...

This was a cute Best Western with good value. We attended a wedding in Carmel and had never been there so we took the recommendations from the wedding invitation. It had a cute gas fireplace in the corner and was very clean. We could hear the music and talking from neighboring rooms but it was not bothersome for us. The... More

We stay here every year in early November. The King ocean view suit is worth the extra cost. Completely separate bedroom and living room with a pull out sofa and TWO bathrooms, fireplace and a fridge! They also have off street parking, a huge plus in Carmel. Hot breakfast is included as well. Overall a great value with AAA it... More

We enjoyed the view of the bay and the warmth of the fireplace. It was only two short blocks from shopping on the main street. The breakfast was great. Parking up above was good when it rained on Friday.

We had booked another place to stay, but it did not work out. The desk clerk was very helpful in getting us a room on short notice, and it was a lovely room, very comfortable. The breakfast was a full breakfast, not just pastries and coffee. There was free covered parking available, and we could walk to all the local... More

Didn't know what to expect based on the mixed Trip Advisor reviews, but glad we made our 1-night stay at the BW Carmel Bay View Inn. Had a long day of driving from SF to Big Sur and was ready to relax. Had a hard time finding the hotel and parking was quite tight, but the front desk staff was... More
