No complaints. Many eateries in area of the hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. About 8 or 9 blocks from the ocean, but some rooms have balconies with ocean views as the hotel is located on a hill. Would absolutely stay again!

This hotel is graded as Best Western Plus, but it is really a very standard motel type of accommodation. The rooms are not soundproofed and noise can be heard from adjacent rooms and from above. Check in was closed on arrival at 1730 and had to wait with others for attention. Shower temperature was not controllable Television was so old... More

Stayed in Carmel 3 nights. Central location made it easy to park and walk. Shopping, beach, restaurants all within a few steps away. We had a beautiful view of the ocean with a private balcony and fireplace. I will stay here again.

I try to stay at this motel whenever we plan to a trip to Carmel-By-The-Sea. The location is perfect; walking distance to all the shops, restaurants, and wine tasting shops. The rates are reasonable, rooms are clean and roomy, and the staff is friendly. On this stay, we ended up with a room that had no refrigerator (I found out... More

This hotel has been around awhile. Still, it is clean and nicely furnished. The desk staff are pleasant and helpful. The beds are good as is the breakfast. In fact, the breakfast is better than average for a "free breakfast" place. The location is good, too. We stayed in a second floor room and we were not disturbed by noise.... More

My wife and I spent 2 nights at this Best Western in Carmel by the Sea, Ca. The hotel is very close to downtown Carmel, and has on-site parking. Because of its location, you can walk to all the key shops, restaurants, gift shops, and galleries, and the beach is about a 1/2 mile walk. The hotel is a BW... More

We were more than happy with this hotel. Bang for buck, it was probably the best hotel we stayed in during our two week trip to California. It was clean, the decor was nice and it was convenient for walking around the town. It was surprisingly, one of the few places where we had breakfast thrown in and it was... More

Coming from San Francisco, this hotel was a very nice and quiet place to stay. The hotel is definitly worth the money you pay there. The room is nice and clean and in the neighbourhood are a lot of very good restaurants.

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

This hotel was surprisingly affordable for being both in Carmel California and so close to the beach. the rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable. i wasn't a fan of the eggs and sausage for breakfast but since the whole thing was free one could hardly complain. they had yogurt and muffins, plenty of juice all which were very...
