“Gem of a Hotel , Did not disappoint!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We only stayed one night on June 26 which I deeply regret. We were in room 63 with a view of the ocean while enjoying the cozy fire place, lovely balcony and a comfortable bed. This hotel is quaint, charming , clean and and much less than the other downtown hotels.. This hotel is only 1 block from the downtown and has a market attached to it for convenience too. We got everything we wanted and more. Room was perfect , staff was courteous and helpful. Even the breakfast was awesome.

Room Tip: Ask for the king Deluxe room on a higher floor.

During our vacation, we spent one night at the Best Western Plus Carmel Bay View Inn - in the heart of darling Carmel. Within close walking distance to the shopping area on Ocean St. The hotel was really cute, loads of baskets with Fuschia flowers hanging outside. Our room was really clean and very cute. It had a fireplace. The gentlemen at the Desk were very nice - even came to our room to start the fireplace for us. The parking is limited but we always found a spot. We felt the price was very decent too. We would for sure stay there again. We love Carmel and try to visit once a year. The internet worked but not that great. Really enjoyed our stay - and the bed was very comfy. The weather was perfect in Carmel - the Inn is located very close to many things/restaurants. We are members of the Best Western Rewards Program - and hoping to get a one night FREE room somewhere - because we stayed at three Best Western hotels in June 2014.

Room Tip: We did not have a bay view room, but that was fine.

Great value for location! Access to internet, full breakfast, and free parking! Fireplace in room! Close to Carmel shops. Staff is on top of it! My only regret is we didn't get a larger bed. We also really wanted an in room fridge but it only comes with select rooms.

We lucked out and got a beach facing room on the top floor with a balcony and it was wonderful. One of our best nights of the trip. You can park here while you walk around town which is pretty convenient. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony.

Read a review about spiders and was real nervous about my stay. Sure enough as soon as I got home from walking around the town, I said to my husband I would love to open the sliding door and get fresh air. As I said this, there was a huge spider similar to the ones in the earlier post. If I see more, I'll freak. I can't be sleeping in a room that could possibly have spiders crawling on me all night. I took a picture of spider #1 and will try and post.

Excellent service. Good, friendly people. Love to stay there anytime. People at the office are such a good team. We've noticed everyone who was at the counter whether they were checking in or out seemed content.

This Plus property does not disappoint. Great breakfast, nice pool, amazing location a few blocks from all the action and about 8 blocks from the ocean. Skimpy on the towels. 3 people in our room and they only supplied 2 towels daily. they also wrote your name down when you got a pool towel. No AC if you must have it. Rooms are all updated and nice. Staff pleasant enough. Next door to a market.
