No air conditioning!

Would not recommend Wed, Oct 28, 2015
Not bad for the price but this hotel has no air so the room was very stuffy and hot. I called the front desk and was told that none of the rooms have air because it doesn't get very hot in Carmel. On a positive note, Bill at the front desk was very helpful in giving recommendations on a place to eat.

Great hotel

Would recommend Tue, Jun 9, 2015
For the price, this is a fantastic hotel. It is in a perfect location, the insides of the rooms look brand new, and the outside offers a view of the ocean (on the upper floors). The breakfast spread is standard for what you would see at any Best Western. I took my fiancee her for her birthday and we both had an amazing time.

USA Road Trip

Would recommend Wed, Jun 3, 2015
The hotel provided good value for money considering that Carmel is 'pricey'. The hot complimentary breakfast was very good and there was plenty of choice for everyone - my only complaint was that it was served with paper plates and plastic cutlery. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was very clean. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it.

Couldn't Have Been Better

Would recommend Fri, Dec 19, 2014
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!

Dining

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..

Would recommend Tue, Oct 14, 2014
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

Would recommend Tue, Sep 16, 2014
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.

Attractions

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!
