For a Best Western Plus, I felt this property was just average in all respects. This should be just a regular Best Western. The room was very basic size, Breakfast room was very small, water in shower changed form Hot to Cold without notice, louvered windows that had cold air blowing in.

Hotel is in a great location, with good ocean view from top floor balcony, easy walk to restaurants and town, friendly staff, nice outdoor areas to relax, the fireplace is a plus for those cool evenings.

We stayed at the BW for 3 nights and were very pleased with our room. It is an old style motel like so many in Carmel, but it is very well maintained. The breakfast was very adequate and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend and stay here again. The fireplace in the room was a... More

This was a great choice. The hotel is within walking distance to the beach and shops. The hotel is nestled among the quaint homes and shops of Carmel. Staff was very friendly and the hotel was cute, comfy and clean. I would stay there again.

We stay on the Monterey Peninsula a couple of times a year, either in Pacific Grove, Monterey or Carmel. It's close to the SF Bay Area and always wonderful to be by the ocean. It had been a few years since we stayed at this Best Western in Carmel. The location can't be beat and there were some lovely changes.... More

My fiancé and I were abruptly awoken at 5:15AM by the smoke alarm/carbon monoxide detector in the room going off on the second day of our stay - my ears are still ringing. The night clerk was kind and shut off the pilot on the fireplace. The alarm sounded a couple of more times (for a total of 4) before... More

Not impressed by this Best Western, our Room 26 is right next to the pool and on the main road. It is old, smelly and depressing. We ask for a quiet, bright room. This is noisy and dingy. On the bright side Camel is lovely.

Reservations were made through Booking.com for a "queen" room. It was the understanding the reservation was for 2 queen beds. We arrived by 4:00 on our check in date, went to the room and found there was only one queen bed. Immediately, we went back to the front desk. The person there indicated that it was booking.com, she had no... More

We stayed here for our 5 year wedding anniversary. As the hotel did not do anything special for that the room , location and view were great. We are already planning to visit again on our next anniversary.

We stayed here a week ago for 2 nights. Hotel is in a great location in Carmel and an easy walk to everything. We had a balcony room with a view over Carmel to the ocean. Very nice. Lots to do in Carmel and the area. Room was clean and quiet. Only slight negative is that the breakfast room is... More
