comfortable and close to everything
Posted Aug 8, 2016
We've stayed in various places in Carmel, Pacific Grove and Monterey; but, since we do like walking the entire Ocean Avenue area in Carmel, we stayed in a Best Western just a block or so off Ocean for this last-minute, overnight trip. We were very pleased with the hotel, the staff, the room, the parking, the area and the staff's recommendations for nearby restaurants. We were especially pleased to have the gas fireplace that made the room more romantic than many hotel rooms are. We didn't try the full breakfast that was offered but heard others say it was good (we'd never gotten to try the breakfasts at Katy's Place just a block or two over so made a point of going there for our breakfast -- great place, by the way). We definitely would stay at the Carmel Bay View Inn again. Our room had a balcony from which we could have watched the sunset over the bay had there been less fog and smoke (from the Soberanes fire) and from which we enjoyed a very nice view of the area. The bed was very comfortable, and the room was clean and pleasant. We had no complaints whatsoever.
