Carmel Bay View Inn
Ranked #13 of 25 Hotels in Carmel

Reviewed 25 April 2014

This hotel was quite the find. There are different rooms to choose from. We got the king size room with a fireplace, balcony and an ocean view. The overall price was fair. The hotel offers discounts and package deals. You just had to walk across the street to find many restaurants, quaint shops, and galleries. The free breakfast offers more than continental. It also served eggs, bacon, and waffles, may favorite. There was a little store/deli next to the hotel. It was a lovely walk to the beach. Also it was a short dive to the Monterey Aquarium and Canary Row.

Spent two nights at Western Plus Carmel Bay View Inn--had a very clean, well maintained room with a fireplace and large deck with a beautiful ocean view. Not only was the room and view perfect, but the manager and staff were the most accommodating and friendly group I have come across in a long time. The breakfast was outstanding--including the presentation of food and cleanliness of the dining room. The staff was very attentive to refreshing the food-there was never an empty platter, and coffee and juice service was hot/cold as it should be. Enjoyed ourselves so much that we are coming back with our family of 12 in October!!

Really enjoyed our stay here. Very cute place with a lot of colorful flowers around, adding to the ambiance. Walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. We also walked to the beach (which is slightly more strenuous, but fun. Mainly because it's a steep hill by the end, esp on your way back to the hotel. It took about 20 minutes. The parking lot is very full during the day so walking can be nice.) The breakfast includes waffles you can make yourself and eggs (and something like sausage or bacon.) The breakfast room is quite small like others have said, hard to get around everyone and to the food. But it's nice because it's not just a carb overload meal like some hotels have! Loved the fireplace in the room. We were surprised how big the room was. The bathroom was HUGE. I do wish they'd add a fridge to the room.

Room Tip: We had the cheapest room you could get. We enjoyed Room #12 because it was an end room. Only share o...

Nice room, clean and comfortable we got a good nights sleep. This Best Western is in a good location for exploring the town and beach , what more could you want.
Mike on reception very honest and helpful with his advice.

I am always skeptical when it comes to budget hotels in the US but this one is better than others I have stayed in. It is in a convenient location for strolling and visiting shops or restaurants.

The room is much nicer than I expected. The bathroom is updated and a nice size. There is a gas fireplace that I used but the heating source is a little different than what I am used to. There is a heating fan near the floor next to the television cabinet with a knob...odd but effective. There is a free breakfast with the usual items. There were plenty of channels but there is a delay when between channel changes (not a big deal but just noting it).
The price of the room, which was nice but from my room I didn't have a bay view, was cheaper than the Comfort Inn in Monterey. The staff was super nice too!

Downside: parking is limited but when I came back from dinner I found a space on the street. Street parking is 2hrs between 8am-I think 7pm so there is overnight parking.

Walls are very thin!!! Can hear all sorts of stuff :-) and hear people walking upstairs.

Also, my room was on the first floor and I had to take an elevator to the 3rd floor to get to breakfast.

I would consider staying here again!

Room Tip: 1st level rooms you can hear walking upstairs

I especially liked the location of this Inn because it is in the beginning of the shopping district where all the restaurants are located. It is a long walk to the beach but you can walk to it. We had requested something specific when making the reservation, which wasn't in the room when we arrived, but after contacting the Best Western 800 number to complain about the item, the staff made a great effort to located what we wanted and provided it the next day. The continental breakfast which was included was very good.

Reserving and checking into the hotel was easy. The hotel location is great- near shops and restaurants. It is convenient to have the small grocery/market nearby. We found the hotel to be well run and clean. The pool is heated!
