Very nice hotel with ocean views and updated suites available. It has a pool and free parking and breakfast available. Print and fax services are complimentary which is a nice plus. It is in a very good location to walk to the town of Carmel with close access to a store, many restaurants and shops and a park. I have...

We had a 2 night stay booked here before we left the UK as part of our road trip, and due to us being displaced by the Grant Grove closure in Kings Canyon because of the huge wildfire, we extended our stay to 4 nights and moved over 2 days earlier to Carmel than originally planned. We received a lovely...

If you want the view in the hotel's name you have to book it specifically and pay extra, which we did and didn't regret - a fine outlook from the balcony, sunset over the bay and high above the rest of the extensive hotel complex. The room was large and had a modern bathroom, a very comfortable bed and decent...

Our first visit to Carmel and needed a central hotel but at a sensible price - the Best Western seemed to fit the bill. It's certainly central and can walk to most places from there. Check in was simple and friendly and we were soon walking into our room - 16. Pleasantly surprised - king sized bed which was comfortable,...

This is our second stay at this Inn, and both times we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms are an adequate size, and also have fireplace which is a nice touch. If you get a room on one o the higher floors you'll be able to see a little of the water, and the gorgeous sunsets. They also have complimentary...

This hotel is actually a motel Minus It has no airco, but most of the lodgings in Carmel do not Rooms are rather noisy Plus Central location Friendly staff Very very very clean. What a relief after so many so called premium hotels that are not clean at all. Decent breakfast included in the price

Stayed 2 days on a driving tour from San Diego to San Francisco. This was one of my favorite 'budget' hotels. Was trying to keep prices down for the hotel, but still get something nice, and this BW did not disappoint. The ocean view rooms have a balcony with a good (if distant) view down the hill and to the...

The hotel is very nice and clean and in a perfect location to the restaurants and stores in Carmel also very close to beautiful Carmel Beach. This is our second time staying here and we have been very pleased with the service and cleanliness of the rooms. Parking can be a little tricky with a bigger vehicle but they do...

Accommodation was simple but very clean. Reception staff very accommodating and knowledgable of local area. I would recommend this hotel for short trips where bed and breakfast is all that is required. Central location and easy to get to. Has a pool. It is small and seats are limited however would be sufficient for a few days stay. Overall the...

A great hotel in a great town. Walking distance to the beach etc but hard to find if you are not local. There is a great restaurant opposite. Parking is fine and often outside of your room. A little general store next door too. Buy your drinks there!
