“Nice hotel with a great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

This hotel was very comfortable and in easy reach of the shops and beach in Carmel. Great Deli next door which was very convenient. The staff were very helpful, the included breakfast was better than most and plentiful. The only negative is that when people are having showers it can be quite noisy in your room. The pool area was lovely and there are flowers everywhere around the hotel in flowerbeds and hanging baskets.

This hotel has a very warm feeling from the welcoming reception upon arrival to the cozy feeling of the fireplace, great views and even fresh flowers in your room. This is one of the most convenient hotels to stay for an easy walk to all restaurants and bars but in an area that is very quiet. Everything is well maintained and kept very clean. We love this hotel!

Overall the rooms are comfotable and somewhat well appointed. Convienent to shopping and resturants. They had a safety issue with a stairway on 3rd floor which I mentioned and was not addressed by the time we left. Also their nite mgr was rude when I needed to change my key as it stopped working. the day staff is very friendly and very accomodating. Pool is heated to 80 but no spa. Overpriced in another area but not for Carmel.

This place is a jewel! Aging well, nicely cared for, lovely flower boxes and grounds, great location. Our comfortable room on the fifth floor with a balcony, nice view of the bay, fireplace, and fridge, was surprisingly affordable. We spent three wonderful days here after a nice week in San Francisco. Next time, it will be three days in SF, a week here.

Nice moderately priced hotel within walking distance to everything in Carmel. Room was good sized and very clean and quiet. Hot breakfast was adequate and included in room price. Bed was very comfortable and room had fireplace. A good hotel for a visit to Carmel, CA.

I have stayed at Best Westerns before with very satisfied results, however this one disappoints, especially for it's location. The rooms smelled musty enough for me to feel it necessary to keep the window open for proper ventilation which in turn made for a loud early morning. Additionally, the breakfast didn't offer healthy options for those traveling with dietary needs...no fat free milk, limited fruit choices and coffee was weak.
