Very nice hotel. Great location and good value. Friendly staff and very clean room. Good facilities. Breakfast was excellent and the waffle maker very popular. Would recommend this for anyone looking for a good hotel in Carmel.

Highly recommended. The room was clean and pleasant with plenty of space for a family of 4. Great central location, very close to shops, cafes and the beach. Service was excellent. Our daughters accidentally left 2 toys in the room when we left and the Manager kindly posted them to us.

I don't think you'll find a better place to stay in Carmel for the price. For those who criticize this hotel for being an older hotel that was remodeled, what did you expect? There are NO new hotels in old Carmel, the city will not allow them. We knew that when we made our plans and we decided that it was more important for us to stay in town to experience the charm of Carmel and be able to walk to shops and restaurants. If you need to stay in a modern hotel with all the amenities of a Marriot or Intercontinental you need to stay in Monterey.

We thought the owners were very friendly and that they did a very good job modernizing the rooms. Was it perfect? No, but even though we’re used to staying at the very best hotels when we travel we were very pleased with our room and we have no regrets about staying here. The location was fantastic and we had no problem finding a space in the hotel parking lot. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We asked for a room on the second floor because we read many reviews form people who stayed on the f...

Situated in a great location, just a couple of blocks from Ocean Ave, which is where all the shopping and lots of restaurants are, the hotel offers free parking, wireless and continental breakfast. We arrived about 9:30pm, but the office was closed. An envelope with our name was taped to the door which included a letter and our room keys. A little odd, but I guess it worked.

Rooms are updated and nice looking. The bed was comfortable. The hotel info binder in the room was pretty outdated, so wasn't much help. The bathroom window faced the parking lot and was in front of other room doors and only had a thin curtain and didn't offer much privacy, so I added a towel over the curtain.

It fulfilled all of our needs (location, price, comfort & cleanliness) for our stay in Carmel and I would stay again.

This Best Western has been refurbished well. The room was quite small but well-appointed: comfortable bed, flat-screen TV, refrigerator, coffee maker. Lighting could be better. Great shower. Front desk person was helpful and provided restaurant advice. Location is ideal - only a block away from Ocean, the main street through the town. A few downsides: small parking lot and very small breakfast area. I left before breakfast was served - it didn't start until 8:00 am, which seems a bit late. In good weather, use the sundeck on the second floor.

Room Tip: There are no particularly good views at the hotel. For quieter room, ask to be away from the sun dec...
