This hotel is well within walking distance to the downtown area of Carmel....a big plus. Our room was a good size and clean, which is very important to us. From the hotel, we were able to walk all of Carmel ad down to the beach twice...never needing to drive our car once we got there. Our only small complaint was...

Though this is a Best Western and a standard no frills hotel---the rooms are spacious, the flat screen tv with full cable appreciated, the fireplace in the room, the nice bathtub/shower and comfortable bed (with plenty of outlets to charge electronics) makes this a nice place to stay. The only thing to quibble would be the upstairs rooms ---you could...

This is an older property, not a typical BW, just part of the billing/advertising chain. Typical downtown Carmel hotel/motel. If you want new and modern, you have to go out to Rte. 1.

Third time here. Very smooth check in to our balconied room. Great view from the balcony. Clean, neat, and well equipped. Breakfast has eggs and sausage, the internet is adequate. The location is close to many fine restaurants, for example, Casanova. Covered parking is available, but I don't know the terms. We'll be back.

This is a cute hotel within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants. The rooms are nice and worth the price. There's an outdoor pool on on-site, but it's small. This hotel offers free parking and breakfast. However after taking a look at the continental breakfast we decided to skip breakfast. The staff was very helpful and friendly. This...

Older hotel. Could use some updates, but was clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. We had a nice view from our balcony. The gas fireplace was a nice touch, but made me a little nervous to light it. Overall nice stay.

The staff is fabulous. Mike Mims, Joanna Napoli and Francisco are the best. Housekeeping is very good and very alert to our needs.. You can't beat the location. ...In the heart of Carmel and steps from restaurants and shopping. They are as helpful as can be. Sweet folks.
