Clean room with fireplace and huge balcony with view of ocean (five blocks away), convenient location, and friendly. We recommend this hotel because of the privacy but within minutes of the beach and a local store/deli around the corner. Restaurants and stores are high end. Off season when the weather is nice makes this a great place to stay.

I thought that staying at a Best Western Plus would be quite a lot better than it proved to be here. Our room didn't look anywhere near as modern as the photo featured. Our room was very tired - with quite dirty-looking old carpet and dusty/musty smelling drapes. My companion's allergies flared up. Except for the TV, the furniture was... More

The hotel is one or maybe the only economical hotel in Carmel, but still pricey. It is located in great location. The rooms are large, with fireplace. Breakfast is including but is very basic. nice clean and fresh renovated bathroom. The staff is great, helpful and friendly.

We have stayed here for 42 years and enjoy our stay for all those years.. It is located at the top of Carmel and you can just park and walk anywhere in the Village. If you have more energy you can walk to the Mission also. Visit Carmel Bay View and you will be coming back also.

Our room was clean and well furnished as was the bathroom although it was a bit small and only had frosted glass with no curtain or blind. The views of the Pacific from our balcony were lovely especially at sunset. The hotel was situated within easy walking distance of the town centre but it should be mentioned that there are... More

This hotel is very convenient to town -- within walking distance. It's clean, comfortable, and roomy. The gas fireplace in the room is a nice touch. It's very nice -- but not extraordinary. However, given the location, the price was quite reasonable, and it included a hot breakfast. The bed was very comfortable. Parking was a challenge later in the... More

Carmel hotels can be pricey, so it was refreshing to pay a fair price for an ocean view with balcony and full breakfast included. The our king room was clean as was the bathroom although it could use an update. Staff very friendly and helpful. Parking is a bit inconvenience because it's around the block behind the building but it's... More

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
