We stayed here during a trip along the Pacific Coast Highway and were delighted with our choice. We specifically requested a room with a view and we were treated to a lovely room in the top block of the hotel. The room was spacious and very well equipped. There was even a large Gas fire in one corner (thankfully, we didn't need this!) There was a great pool in front of the building below us and the Wifi, in common with all Best Westerns, was fast, reliable and included in the room rate. The breakfast was standard hotel fare and perfectly adequate and also included in the room rate.
The hotel is located about 1/2 mile up from the beach. An ideal location for a spot of retail therapy during an evening stroll!

Room Tip: Request a room with a good view - for us, this was the highest block.

Loved the view of the ocean. The hotel was further away from the ocean and shopping then I imagined. There is a market on the corner that's very handy. If you're there on the day they collect the garbage don't plan on sleeping in.

This is a quiet, very comfortable hotel in a lovely setting, far enough away from the main street noise but very close to everything. The beds and pillows are very comfortable and the rooms and bathrooms were meticulously clean. Parking and WIFI are free. The breakfast is also included in the price of the room and is served in a very pretty, airy, bright and cheery room. The food is routine breakfast fare, with cold and hot items, but all of it was fresh and presented very nicely. This is a great, affordable place to stay in beautiful Carmel-by-the Sea. We look forward to visiting again.

Clean, comfortable stay in the heart of Carmel, at a relatively affordable price. We stayed in a room with a balcony, with great views of the ocean. Very quiet and peaceful. Highly recommended for your basic comfortable stay (and you can't find any romantic cottage getaways within your budget).

Hotel located in a prime location. One block from major shops and restaurants. Amazing view . Overall very nice. Breakfast was average and bed not so comfortable. Room was spacious with nice balcony. Considering you are in the heart of Carmel I guess we got our money's worth.
