My husband, our friend and myself stayed at this Hotel for 3 nights earlier in May,. Reception very kindly gave us 2 rooms next to each other on the second floor, and the rooms were a good size with a fireplace and 2 chairs, with a large wardrobe, which was very useful. The Hotel at first sight has a strange... More

We were slightly concerned by some recent negative reviews on tripadvisor but the hotel worked out very well for us. We had asked for a quiet room and were allocated one by the pool. This is a single storey block so no noise from upstairs or downstairs. The room wasn't overly large but it was fine , the bed was... More

We were completely satisfied with our stay at the Best Western Plus Carmel Bay View Inn and would definitely stay again the next time we are in Carmel which I hope is soon. Check-in was prompt and we were provided with an excellent suggestion for a quick meal (right across the street - see separate review). The room was spacious... More

My husband and I were making a trip down the west coast as economically as possible,therefore we chose this Best Western. We were not disappointed as we had a spotless, spacious,corner room which boasted an awesome view of the city, the bay and surrounding mountains. An added plus was a delicious breakfast with a very friendly staff. We were, however,... More

This Best Western is located within walking distance of shops and only a few miles from the famous "17 mile drive". While we had trouble with the internet and thought that there would be a small fridge/micro combo which were both absent the breakfast was very good, the room clean and recently re-decorated. Lots of hanging baskets helped to make... More

The hotel is located a bit up the hill from the main shops and restaurants but close enough to walk without any difficulty. The staff are very good and facilities in the rooms were fine too. This was a nice comfortable stop-overon our way from SF to LA

Parking is at a premium in this small town. This is a good place and close to all the shopping. The breakfast served is very good (not a lot of selections but what do you want for free). The beach is a long hike and the trip back is all up-hill.

Stayed two nights. Great location allowing walking to shops, restaurants and ocean. Francisco on front desk was outstanding. Appreciated his directions and customer service. Grocery store within steps from hotel. Room was larger than expected.

Conveniently located in the heart of Carmel. Amenities were nothing out of the ordinary, but it was a great value for the location. The only problem we had was there was no parking at night, but we just parked on the street outside the hotel and moved our car by 10:00am to avoid a ticket

The Carmel Bay View Inn is located in a great spot. Handy for everything you want to do & not have to drive. The hotel itself is adequate. The queen beds are comfortable, the single beds are not. There's not enough seating in the breakfast room. I prefer to take steps but could not do that all the way up.
