Smart prices in upscale downtown Carmel
Basic but quite well-located for travel to Carmel, the clean, comfortable Best Western Plus Carmel Bay View Inn features a fireplace and free Wi-Fi in every room. After the complimentary continental breakfast, relax on the outdoor decks, swim in the seasonal outdoor heated pool, or walk to the beach or along the village streets of Carmel. Exclusive shops, galleries, restaurants and spas line the neighboring blocks, while other Monterey Bay attractions, including Pebble Beach and the 17-Mile Drive, are not much farther from the hotel.

Couldn't Have Been Better

This hotel and staff is fantastic in every way. The only thing that I can think of needing improvement is the location of the breakfast area. It is awkward to get to and has a poorly arranged flow once you are in the area. That is a very small issue, considering how absolutely lovely everything about this place proves to be. What a gem of a hotel!

Don't miss Bruno's Market next door. Go to the back for awesome take out food, sandwiches, made in store and DELICIOUS. Furthermore, their pizza is crazy good!

1st stay in Carmel..

we booked this Best Western and are generally happy with out stay, I do think still having the old style TV ( no flat screen) is not acceptable these days in franchise properties especially in upscale locations. This property is clean, has parking and perfectly located to walking distance to everything worthwhile in Carmel..I would stay again, but would like to see flat screen tv, micro/fridge to store some drinks that I bought from next door grocery mart. Breakfast included in rate was average and adequate. Front desk personnel were nice but not overly welcoming, could use some improvement.

A place to stay in Carmel-by-the-sea

Location is what this motel has going for it. Room was nice, good size, with a gas-fireplace. Pool was great, though tricky to get to motel is built on a hillside requiring an elevator to get anywhere. Check-in clerk forgot to hand us keycards for the room which required another trip back to the desk to get them.

All the great dining and shopping experiences of Carmel-by-the-Sea are just a few blocks away. Farther away but still close is Carmel Mission and Carmel Beach at the Bay. Great location!

Great location good value

For the price this is a great place to stay.The room had a gas fireplace,the bathroom was spacious and up dated.very clean and well run motel and even included breakfast. The only bad things is that the eggs were the fake kind that do not have any flavor and the sausage was the same same but all the other offferings were fine. The walls are a bit thin and if you have noisey neighbors it could be a problem. I would stay here again.

Plenty of room for a family of 5 and a heated pool

We has a king suite for mom, dad, and 3 kids. It was pleasantly large, with 2 bathrooms, a bedroom separate form the living room, a large balcony, and a beautiful view. We had the heated pool in full sun all to ourselves for over an hour Saturday afternoon! And we enjoyed the breakfast that offered more than enough food and choices for everyone. Fo just one night (and only one afternoon, really), the stay was everything we could hope for with 3 young children who even behaved themselves well for the most part. Thank you!
