The hotel is easy to get to, close to Carmel's main street and not far way from the beach. Rooms are nice, the ocean can be seen from the balcony. Breakfast room is ubder renovation so, no breakfast!!

Clean room. Comfortable bed. Quiet. An older building. sort of quaint/dated but I appreciated the cleanliness. Staff were helpful and friendly. A good breakfast was included. Fair value for money and I would stay there again.

I would totally recommend this hotel. It was great value for money. Super clean, spacious rooms, free parking and wifi and a simple breakfast is included. The staff was great, everyone is helpful and cheerful. Super central too, maybe a 10 minute walk to the beach. Wouldn't hesitate to come back.

The location of this hotel is perfect. When we arrived, the front desk manager, Michael, upgraded us to a larger room than we had reserved with a lovely view and terrace. This is a great little city for walking and the hotel is situated right near many good restaurants and shops. The halls are a bit dated but the rooms...

This is a lovely older hotel/motel (all hotels in the village are older). The staff is welcoming and efficient, especially the breakfast room people. Breakfast is a fairly typical motel buffet. The suite is nicely appointed, with an ocean view. Parking is right at the room. With off season rates, it is affordable.

We stayed here for a night. The hotel is quaint, room we got didn't have modern A/C unit, it had a fireplace and a wall electric heater. It was a bit cold at night. Good thing Carmel is quiet at night, because you could hear noise from street. Breakfast was good!

Really happy with Best Western ... I got the hotel through Hotwire (booked at least 6 months in advance). The location is perfect! A block from Ocean Ave and has a nice little market next door (good for snacks for our tired feet). The room was so clean! The bathroom was immaculate and nice to have a bathtub. The gas...

We stayed here last weekend for just one night. The hotel is older but in decent shape. We didn't spend a lot of time at the hotel but the staff was pleasant and friendly. We had a covered parking space. The room had a fireplace. At first when I turned on the heater, the room didn't seem to be getting...
