“Good Location”
Reviewed 14 July 2012

Good location to walk around Carmel, one block off Ocean Ave. The room was clean with a comfortable bed. We loved the fireplace as it was chilly. The extra money for an ocean view not advised. Oceanview was a stretch, if I stood on the balcony and leaned to the left on my tip toes I might have a peak of the ocean. Linens on the bed a little worn, with small hole. Would have liked more towels also. Bathroom clean and has been updated. We appreciated breakfast being included, as everything in Carmel is pricey.

I have no idea why this place isn't rated higher. It was clean, had a cozy fireplace, and was within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, and the beautiful white beach. I hope I can return to this "fairy tale" community again soon. If you need a place to relax, this is it! It is the perfect mix for folks who love the mountains and the water. Aaahhhh!!!

Book a top floor room. Room 60 is one of the best but near it will do. Great view of the ocean over the tree tops. From room 60 you can see Point Lobos. Nice continental breakfast plus rare off street parking. We used to stay at Carmel Sands but not anymore. Bay View in is our Carmel choice every time.

Room Tip: Ask for room 60 it's the best. Two bathrooms, two balconies, two TVs, plus a wet bar, fire plac...

We attend the Pebble Beach Concours week of events every August and for the last 15 years we have stayed at the Bay View. The manager Joanna is so helpful and always takes care of the 20+ of us who stay there as a group. We always stay in Room 22, overlooking the pool. Love that room. We went this last weekend and stayed in rooms 46 & 47 which I have to say have the nicest views and a lovely patio for each. The central location of this property make walking to wherever you may want to go in town a breeze. Breakfast included.

Room Tip: Room 22-25 are awesome and overlook the pool. Rooms 46 & 47 have a great view and patio.

We made the fun trip to Carmel to surprise a friend for his 40th birthday. We thought about staying in the hotel where he and his wife were staying, but we didn't want to bump into him too early and ruin his surprise. So, we did the next best thing - and picked a hotel that was steps away from Casanova's, the restaurant where we were all meeting for dinner. Carmel is hilly and generally commands lots of walking and so forth, so since I wanted to be able to wear a pair of heels to dinner, this worked out great. We didn't have overly high expectations for the hotel, but as it turned out they exceeded our expectations tremendously. Our room was spacious, with a cozy gas fireplace, a large private deck and a gorgeous view of the beach as well as the quaint little town. It was perfect!
Even with all of those nice features, the one thing that still stands out in my mind for that hotel was how beautifully clean and polished they kept their glass. From the shower door to the sliding glass door, there was not one single spot in sight. Needless to say, with standards like that, the rest of the room was spotless as well, but the way they kept their glass - I will never forget.
Before we checked out, we stopped to chat with the head of housekeeping, to find out how they accomplished such sparkling glass. I was quite honored when she shared her special secret with us!
All in all, it was a superb weekend that of course, ended too quickly. Jason was very surprised.
We would happily stay at the Carmel Bay View Inn again.

Room Tip: Rooms on a higher floor, toward the back of the hotel that face the ocean and have a deck are nice.
