Best Western Plus Carmel Bay View Inn

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 January 2014

While showing it's age a bit, the hotel is well maintained and spotless. It is in an excellent location. Staff were very helpful and friendly. One of our two nights the room next to us had a noisy party. We waited until 10pm then alerted staff, who stopped the noise/party almost immediately! Our room was nice, and comfortable, and everything worked. Bathroom was compact but shower worked well, as did hot water for basin, which was in the bathroom.The only complaint is that the room heater, which is electric and fan -operated, is very noisy, and old-fashioned. Breakfast was good, but the scrambled eggs were rather hard.Staff at breakfast were very efficient.

Good service, beautiful rooms. Don't get one with balcony above you. VERY noisy every time someone opens doors. DO NOT STAY HERE UNLESS YOU HAVE A RENTAL CAR!! We had a compact car, and spaces are so narrow we literally could not get in the driver's side one day.

Nasty smoked bacon smell all day due to market next door smoking pork outside all day every day.

Balconies are big, totally private with true ocean views.

Would definitely recommend this hotel, simple but great value. We stayed as a family for 1 night and had a perfect stay and were wowed by Carmel the town, the kids loved the deep pool , breakfast is basic but after days of indulgence this was fine!

Room Tip: Choose the family room

Great location- easy to walk a block or so to downtown Carmel; next door to a small market (Bruno's) with prepared food and wine; reasonably priced; full breakfast - surprisingly good; spotlessly clean; friendly helpful staff; wouldn't hesitate to recommend it; couldn't ask for more for the money

I can highly recommend this motel for those looking for affordable and convenient digs in Carmel. The motel is located right in the mist of all the action, close to restaurants and galleries. The room was spotlessly clean and fresh and had a fireplace to add to the cosy ambiance. The price was extremely reasonable and on the lower end of the spectrum of all the many motels I priced. I would definitely stay there again when next visiting Carmel.

Great bed, comfortable room (including a gas fireplace!) and very central to the town of Carmel. The inn looks like it has been remodeled fairly recently. The bathroom was small but pristine with a wonderful shower. The TV is not a flat screen, but there are plenty of channels, and the internet is good. Breakfast was just OK.

Pleasant hotel in Carmel that is affordable, with a nice room fireplace, and convenient location. Nice staff, clean rooms, hotel breakfast standard. Rooms have thin walls, but only heard water pipes on our stay
