We stayed in room 51 which had an ocean view on upper terrace of lodge. You can park your car right outside your room door, very convenient. The room was clean, bed very comfortable, and are stay was quiet.
The staff was very friendly, and allowed a late check out of an hour.
Breakfast was ok, bagels, pastry, fruit, yogurt, coffee, tea, etc. The ladies servicing the breakfast room were always cleaning and refreshing. The hot dish was scrambled eggs and sausage, pretty tasteless, but plenty of other choices.
They were also really good about letting you keep your car in parking lot after you checked out so you can walk the town of carmel.

Spent the last two nights in Carmel at the Best Western. We enjoyed our stay. We had a king room with a view on 5 th floor. Beautiful view. Room was very clean and good size with updated & newly remodeled bathroom. Breakfast was adequate but needs improvement on the eggs & bacon. Staff were very friendly.

We stayed in Carmel on Sept. 14 & 15. Our room had an ocean view but we were quite a distance from the ocean. We watched the sunset from our balcony and I was beautiful. The hotel was very clean. The only disappointment was that the rooms were a little tired. The beds/bedding and furniture need to be updated. The bathrooms have been updated. We paid around $200 a night, which was one of the most expensive hotel costs for our 11 day trip to California. The breakfast which was included is always nice. Carmel is a lovely town and we hope to visit there again.

Room Tip: I always ask for an upgrade at every hotel I visit at no extra cost. Sometimes you can get a room w...

Our stay in Carmel was short however we enjoyed our stay at the Carmel Bay View Inn. The room was very spacious and the bedding was clean, the beds comfortable. The bath room was very large and had a granite counter top. Our room came with a mini fridge too. The breakfast room was very nice and large. There was also tables outside on a small patio. The breakfast was very good - we had eggs and sausage and a large assortment of breads, cereal and muffins. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you want an ocean view you have to reserve a king suite. Our queen only had a view of the roof...

We just had one night in Carmel and limited time. Knowing we would not spend much time in a hotel room, we wanted to find a place with reasonable rates that was clean, comfortable and within walking distance to some good restaurants. This was a good find if these are your requirements. The check-in staff was very personable, the room clean, and the bed comfy. They even had a decent a la carte breakfast spread included in the rate. We opted for the cheaper room, but I think there are some that even have a view of the bay.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Check in and service was fine but the room is very outdated. We were in room 248 I believe so not sure if other rooms have been updated or not. Bed was a little too firm and sheets so so. View was fantastic (got the ocean view king suite) and it was clean but looks like original carpet and furnishings. Shower water pressure was very weak as well. Carmel is pricey so this was the only place that looked like a good walking location with a view that was in our budget ($245/night).
