    Very good
    The hotel is not far away from the beach, actually the town is very small that you can walk wherever you want. The thing I am very ungry is that I booked double beds month ago while when I checked in There was only one queen size bed for two ladies, what's worse was the roof seems made by wood that I could hear clearly people talking, walking, taking shower...everything on the 2nd floor. This made me unsleeping till mid night. Really bad experience in this hotel.

    Worth the stay
    Near to the main street, and walking distance to beach. Would be better if they have coin laundry mats.

    Excellent location, spacious, clean, charming, no hesitation at all.
    Carmel is a 'go to' destination with accordingly horribly high accommodation prices, but the Best Western Plus is sensibly priced but not lacking in anything. The location is just perfect (other than not being on the beach, but I'm not sure that anywhere is right on the beach?) being right at the top of the main drag around which all the restaurants, shops, bars, etc. are clustered, you won't touch your car whilst you see town because once you run out of the shops and bars you hit the beach and you can walk all around to the scenic drive etc. very pleasantly. First impressions when you arrive are good, it's quite a charming 'clapboard' type exterior with great climbing and trailing plants all over the place, someone goes to great lengths to keep the garden flourishing (and it looks better in reality than in the photos). The front desk staff were all really helpful, there's plenty of parking, and once you've checked in the impressions remain good, the rooms are modern, clean, large, comfortable with a good shower room too. Several reviews mentioned the rooms weren't warm enough in fall or winter but we're English so thought we'd brave it, and there are 'gas log fires' in the rooms (you just flick a switch like a light switch and they're on) and contrary to what we found on the reviews they are effective, not 'instant' but after 30 mins or so they are warming the rooms up nicely. There's a swimming pool, but we're not English enough to use that in late fall, we just observed that it looked nice. If we were re-visiting Carmel we wouldn't look at any other hotel or motel, Sure you can stay in a swanky starred up place with a restaurant in-house etc., but you'll pay more than double and will walk out for dinner anyway.
