First hotel we found, got an ocean view suite on the 4th floor, nice view 2 rooms, fire place (beware of your hair when lighting) all in all a nice quiet room fast wifi, parking & breakfast. Staff here are very sweet and helpful - I'm British, so don't give that compliment too often

We always stay at the Carmel Bay View Inn when we're in Carmel. The rooms in the Hilltop House offer the best views of Carmel Bay...spectacular! Most of the hotels in Carmel are charming but very few have views of the ocean.

We were unable to visit Yosemite Park for the three nights we had reservations for and decided to go to Carmel. The trip was very pleasant but we wish the parks had been open so we could go with our original trip plans. Thank you to the Congress of the United States.for disrupting a planned trip and luckily we were able to switch our plans and stay in Carmel.

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.
