“Great value, lovely view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

Pay a little extra for the fifth floor to get the view. Gas fireplaces in the huge room with large balcony. Bed super comfy. Breakfast average to blah.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

Nice hotel, centrally located to shopping and dining in Carmel by the sea. Very clean rooms, comfy beds, flat screen tv with partial ocean view. There is a heated pool, which we did not use but it looked well maintained also. Pretty quiet no noises coming from surrounding rooms. Only complaint is that it is not a dog friendly hotel, and Carmel is largely a dog friendly city. Even one of the restaurants directly across the street allow pets. There are 2 retaurants directly across the street Forge in the Forest and Carmel Food Company.So if you are looking to take the family pet, this is not the place for you. There seems to be plenty of parking although it is a bit tight. Other than that, i would definitely recommend for anyone visiting Carmel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 3rd and 4th floors have ocean views

Room was excellent though a little difficult to keep warm in the rain, wind and cold. Location worked well for walking around Carmel and spending time on the beach. Staff most helpful. Breakfast like any Best Western was boarderline but you know that when you book.

Room Tip: Top floor and unless you really wnat a view stay on the quiet side.

Although there were cheaper rooms in the motel, we opted for a king bed room with an ocean view. It came with a balcony that over looks the bay, fridge, coffee maker, excellent wifi, a gas fire place and a quality breakfast selection. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Close to the centre of town and easy access to the beach, either a walk down the hill or drive to the all day carpark. Wish we had more time to stay.

Room Tip: Room 46, ocean view, great for a romantic weekend.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2012

Frequent visitors to Carmel/Monterey. I booked through Orbitz bad move better room avail. at same location (but also had a view)thru AAA for $15 dollars less. We usually frequent the properties on upper San Carlos but good reviews tempted us to try this location. ROOM was clean, spacious and comfortable, but beginning at 05:00 the street noise started, if you are an early riser this will be just fine.First the street cleanner, a then trash pick up and followed by large delevery trucks and the strret cleaner again. This propererty also ofeers a hot breakfast which is a nice touch. However we did not have an oppertunity to try this as the breakfast room was woefully small for the occupancy numbers of this place People were standint to eat.
A plus is convience to down town shopping. Iwould not stay here again

Room Tip: Stay on upper san Carlos less noisy
