Lovely room with huge balcony that overlooked the town and the sea. Conveniently placed to walk to the town, free parking and very friendly staff. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this hotel if you are staying in Carmel. Wish I could have stayed another day.

Modern room with all the facilities you require. Very clean. Carmel is a small town and so your car is not required to get to the shops and restaurants. Breakfast was adequate - help yourself to yogurt, pastries, coffee and some cooked items - only "problem" is that breakfast room is very small so avoid popular times if you want... More

This hotel was one of the most pleasant surprises on a recent family vacation in Northern California. The king suite we stayed in was modern, clean, comfortable and incredibly spacious. The bathroom was large enough to host a small party! We were on the fourth floor, which afforded us a bay view from the balcony. Because the hotel is built... More

We have never been disappointed with our stay at the BW Plus Carmel Bay View Inn. The staff has always been professional, friendly, and attentive. The property and rooms have always been clean. The breakfast room is a bit small for seating but there are a few outdoor tables.

This hotel was very nice. Clean, friendly staff and great location. Free breakfast was good. The staff was very helpful with directions and information on local points of interest. The fireplace in the room was a great touch especially since the nights are cool.

I called a day ahead and asked if we could upgrade and we were able to book the last King room. Michael confirmed to me that I had made a good choice. He was so right because our room had a balcony that was so private we could keep the door open all night. No one could get up unless... More
