This was a nice hotel, but cold. We got a room with a fireplace and even though we're from MN and used to cold, this room was cold. We left the fireplace and heater on full blast all night and woke up cold. The room was also supposed to be Oceanview, and you could barely see it at all, probably...

Over the past 30 years we have been going to Carmel, Ca up our coast. We have stayed at a many lovely places. BWBayview Inn is affordable, clean, comfortable and close to everything. WE can walk everywhere. The staff and management is very hospitable. It's always our #1 choice.

Room #67!!!! This room had an awesome view of the ocean, a fireplace, and balcony. It was clean, and newly renovated. This little gem was on par with high end Marriott experiences I have had. The hotel is quiet, clean, and friendly. It is in the action, and had ample parking. Would most certainly stay there again. Awesome value!

Absolutely beautiful hotel and exceptionally clean. The people at the front desk were very helpful with questions about Carmel and places to eat. We had a beautiufl view of the ocean to boot! The location is perfect for walking around Carmel. Cannot recommend highly enough!

The word "Best" in Best Western is definitely misleading. If this is the "best" they do then this chain are certainly behind with the rest. The rooms were a good size, but set in the 80's. Parking is available but felt a little lucky to get a space. No air con, so the shutters were open to loud music coming...

I would stay here again. The room was spacious and clean. The hotel was close to shops. The beach is a 10 minute walk down a big hill, so it's a bit of a hike back up to the hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful but they didn't have wine glasses or a bottle opener. The breakfast was included and...

After looking at many hotel and B&B options in Carmel stayed here for one night based on reviews. Although I normally stay at more upscale brands, this was a winner. Friendly staff at check-in, free parking for guests, and the best part is that it is in the middle of downtown and we had an ocean view- all for under...

Friendly and helpful office staff who gave me 5 star service. The location was great too. The room was exceptionally clean and the decor attractive. The bathroom was large and beautiful. The only drawback was the loud heater and crowded breakfast room. I liked the little fireplace in the room too. By the way, loved "The Forge" across the street...

Roomy, super-clean rooms, great king mattress and bedding, good and adequate breakfast, great office staff, super convenient location! Plus gorgeous plants and flowers all around the property. They worked with us to accommodate three generations in multiple rooms.
