The hotel seems to have been refurbished quite recently, though not to the highest standard. Our King size suite smelled musty and the lavatory blocked more than one occasion. Unusually, the room was not air conditioned, though when we visited in August, it was cool enough not to need it.

Hotel was very nice, accommodations were made for early arrival, employees very nice. Loved the breakfast and how late they remain open, didn't feel rushed. Enjoyed the fireplace in room. Will definitely return.

In many locations, over $200 per night would be expensive but in Carmel-by-the-Sea it is on the lower end. Despite this, the hotel was quite nice--close to Ocean Avenue, very clean, parking right outside our door, a distant view of the ocean from our balcony and an extremely helpful person at check-in. There was even a fireplace in our room.... More

We just returned from a two-night visit in Carmel where we stayed at the Best Western Carmel Bay View Inn. The CBV Inn is a lovely, welcoming hotel with nice amenities and a great location. It is located on Junipero Dr just two short blocks from Ocean Ave. The shops, art galleries, and many restaurants are an easy walk from... More

Nice rooms and romantic breakfast room. Comfortable beds and amenities. Close to shops and restaurant and beside a local super market. You can walk to downtown and restaurants. The staff is very helpful.

A lovely hotel right in the heart of the city. Rooms are comfortable, each with a balcony and a fireplace. Children love the pool! Great location - minutes from the beach with fantastic restaurants all around.

When you book a Best Western Hotel you pretty much know what you're going to get and we got what we expected. The rooms/bathrooms were fine and the hotel is close to the 'centre' of Carmel a few minutes walk away. So far so good. However the breakfast arrangements deserve comment. The breakfast room is a small, unappealing room with... More

While staying in Carmel, you are forced to pay top dollar and for this property, it was worth it. Beautiful large deck and comfy bed. The only 'complaint' is the size of the breakfast room. Pretty much every BW is the same and I so wish it were different. It's very uncomfortable squeezing around people to get your items and... More

For a motel, this was a good place to stay. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were very spacious. I paid $20 more to get a room with a view of the ocean and there was a decent size balcony and a gas fire place. A simple continental breakfast is offered in the lobby, along with coffee, tea and...
