Best Western Plus Carmel Bay View Inn

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice hotel off ocean ave so not busy but a 10 minute walk to the beach. Fireplace and fridge in room and a nice local grocery store next door. lots of stairs so not good if walking is a problem. the breakfast is better than most. I have returned here because I was very happy with the hotel.

I spent 4 days with my 12 year old daughter in Carmel and we really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was very clean, with a comfortable bed and nice view. It was close to everything but not in the middle of the busiest area, which I appreciate . Overall a positive experience. I would come back, and recommend it to friends.

Comfortable with great amenities, clean, quiet & the best location in Carmel!!

Excellent experience staying here. Staff was very helpful. Room was very clean. We had a fireplace and it was a beautiful touch. Great location nice and quiet. We were able to walk everywhere and not hassle worth the parking. I would recommend staying here and can't wait to come back

Loved staying here, we had a beautiful view and it was clean contemporary and comfortable.

Great location, walking distance from all the shops and restaurants

I am not sure why this is considered a Best Western "Plus". Heating system is extremely noisy, breakfast room is very basic. The price is very high for what it is but maybe it's because of the high demand (between Christmas and New Year) and the location is very good.

Pleasant experience! Corner room with a big balcony, very clean, comfortable bad and pillows. Hotel location excellent. Decent complimentary breakfast and coffee.

Recent room upgrades and a very nice layout have made this hotel a terrific option for business passers by or even families visiting Carmel.

Nice hotel in a great location just off ocean Blvd but easy walk to shops and small deli/market next door. only complaint is that the walls are thin and the people in the next room talking sound like they are in your room.

The room was ok, but the shower was ridiculous. I am a tiny person, but the shower was so small I barely could move. The shower head was also placed so high that the water just fell on my head. And the water never got hot. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

We had a decent stay overall. Room was clean but looked old and tired. Parking was a bit tight, so if you come with a car then be prepared to park on the street. Location was great, right in the heart of Carmel............................................

I had a great experience, from the friendly service to the beautiful view.

It was a very nice cozy place - close to everything. Nice staff great rooms

Clean, great location. Beautiful view and especially enjoyed the fireplace.

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.

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.

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!

Best stay in Carmel, clean room and sheet, wonderful breakfast
