Our stay at the Best Western Carmel Bay view Inn was nice. Let me start with the things that we thought should have been better. The WiFi is horrible. Don’t expect to get good service unless you are close to the office. There just aren’t enough outlets to power things. We stayed in room 66 on the 5th floor and never could get more than 1 or 2 bars and most of the time we couldn’t connect. If you plan on taking a shower in the morning when everyone else does you may or may not have HOT water; it will be warm at the worst. The breakfast was not spectacular – you get sausage links and yellow discs that are eggs. Along with that cereal, fruit, bagels and various breads were abound.
Now for what we liked! Get a room with a fireplace, deck and ocean view! We did and it was wonderful. Around 7:45PM is when we just sat out on the deck and looked out over the ocean and watched the sunset. A great way to end a day. From room 66 the sun sets over the trees and part of the ocean. If you want to see the sun over the ocean only, get a room more near the northly side of the hotel that overlooks the sea; the trees will be out of the way there. But we still enjoyed ours! The fireplace is a gas one and was fantastic. The TV has radio stations so we listened to music and sat out on the deck while it all happened. The bed was great – firm! The room was very spacious (had a King room) and very comfortable. It has a small heater if you get cold at night.
The hotel from the outside looks very quaint. Love the actual wooden shingles on the roofs and it has moss on them which adds to the character of this seaside town. The hotel does a good job of keeping everything very clean. You can also look out from our 5th floor deck onto the town somewhat and see the tops of the homes peeping out above the trees. There are a lot of trees!
We would stay here again!
