Really enjoyed staying at this hotel . It was in a great location-and an easy walk to shops and restaurants. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the parking was easy. Breakfast is all self-served and while ok the actual room is too small and poorly organized. It is a shame as this could be outstanding venue a better...

Carmel Bay View Inn was very nice for a weekend wedding we attended in Carmel. Hotel was clean with a Great view from the 5th floor. Location was Great for shops, art galleries and restaurants . Prices are a little on the High side but worth the location.

We stayed in a king corner room with a fireplace. Used the fireplace one morning due to chill in the October air (foggy morning). We had a S/W corner room with a nice patio where we ate lunch twice. Breakfast was included but was the usual BW breakfast, adequate but nothing to rave about. The Forge across the street is...

My husband and I stayed 2 nights in this hotel. I was nervous booking a Best Western, but the reviews looked good. We were not disappointed! A balcony with a view is what I cared about most and that's exactly what we got on the 5th floor, room 64. Breakfast was a bonus.

We eventually found this place tucked away in Carmel having booked two days before on booking.com. We booked a Deluxe King Room with Ocean View and Fireplace total via inc all taxes for one night - $300. So in terms of the price tag we thought this would have to be spectacular. We had room 46 which was in the...

Left San Francisco and drove to Carmel for a night at the BWP Carmel Bay view, guess there is a room that views the bay, but not ours, we had the pool to look at. Glad it was not used as it would have been very noisy, free car park and free wifi. Amazing we have not paid for wifi...

We had a King room on the 5th floor. We had a fireplace, balcony and as my husband said, a million dollar ocean view. I think the price is very reasonable. The room was "spic-n-span" clean. The staff very nice. The hotel is right in the middle of the village. We walked everywhere. There is a small market next door...

This is an overpriced hotel. Our room was very average, the decor was tired and did not have AC which was much needed as the temperature was in the 90s. We therefore had to have our window open which was on the front of the room by the walkway so we were woken up in the morning by other guests...

My husband & I have been traveling the PCH for days and booking hotels along the way. I mistakenly booked this hotel for a day earlier before our arrival. When we checked in, the clerk discovered the mistake. The manager refused to credit me for the previous night even though we were willing to pay a higher rate for the...

The location in Carmel was perfect for being able to walk anywhere in the downtown area or to the ocean. I highly recommend staying on the upper floor as you have view of the ocean from your own private balcony. There is a nice pool but no spa/tub which would have been nice.
