“Great charming hotel”
Reviewed 16 March 2014 via mobile

I was driving with my wife along highway 1 between Los Angeles and San Francisco. We stopped in carmel without prior hotel reservation. I checked the GPS and randomly picked this hotel. We were very lucky. We got a nice room on the top floor with gorgeous view and a fireplace. The rate was good as well. Free breakfast but could have been better. The front desk man was less than warm but ok. But overall the hotel was great and we decided to stay for another night. Try not to get s room o the first or second floor as you will not have a view. Loved the hotel for the price.

We had a large 2 bedroom unit and although the property is older, the bathroom was updated and very clean, and the beds were made up with nice sheets and were very comfortable. The office staff were helpful and friendly. There is a small market right next door which was very handy! The breakfast was better than I expected, with fresh scrambled eggs, sausage, and french toast. Our room did not have a view, but many do, so be sure to ask if this is important to you.

Despite not being right in the center of Carmel, this hotel is in a good location and quiet. Easy to get in and out of and within walking distance of everything in the heart of the town. Definitely a nice place.

The BestWestern PLUS Carmel Bay View Inn is our favorite vacation destination. We have stayed there many times over the past twenty plus years. Both the inn and the town are wonderful. The staff has been pleasant and accomodating. The rooms are clean and pleasantly decorated. Because we are "snackers", we enjoy having a small, high-quality market next door. We often take out for out evening meals and there are two fine restaurants across the street that do take out. The rooms in the upper stories have beautiful views of the town and the sea. We recommend the Bay View to all our friends.

We highly recommend your hotel because it was very clean and staff are very helpful. Front Desk clerks and Manager both are very helpful and quickly response any request we ask. Breakfast lady she's polite and helpful to bring the coffee to my table because I'm using cane. We will be back for sure and already recommend to my friend and I share our wonderful experience during our stayed.

Very comfortable bed. Gas fireplace worked for about 10 min then shut off. Room had a musty smell and appeared to be built in the 50s. Very, very clean. Good location to town right a above pool. Safe area
