The Best Western Carmel's Townhouse lodge is one of two Best Western's located in Carmel (the other being the Best Western Carmel View Inn). The Carmel Townhouse Lodge (like the other Best Western) is located in the center of town. Only a few minutes walk from Ocean Ave (the main street running through Carmel with dozens of quaint and charming shops and restaurants) the Carmel Town House Lodge offers ample parking on site for those who prefer to leave their car and explore by foot.
The town of Carmel is famous for its charming little Inns that dot the narrow drives and streets all the way down to the ocean. Many of these Inns have been run by mom and pop ownerships for decades. The Best Western is an alternative for those looking for accommodations in Carmel outside of the local owned themes. However the Carmel Townhouse Lodge still takes on a small boutique property look and feel like the other Inns of Carmel. The rooms at the Best Western Carmel Townhouse Lodge have just recently undergone a complete renovation. Rooms now offer granite countertops, small refrigerators, king and queen sized beds, new carpeting and painted walls. This Best Western property has a reputation as being extremely clean and well maintained.
The hotel also offers a complimentary light continental breakfast. The rates for this hotel are roughly in the $100 range. Many frequent visitors to Carmel find the Best Western Carmel's Townhouse Lodge to be comparable to many of the quaint and very expensive Inn's in the town. Guests looking to visit the beach will find it to be about a 10-15 minute walk from this location (vs. the less than 5 to the "village"). Visitors traveling outside of Carmel will find Monterey and the Monterey Bay Aquairum to be about a 7 minute drive (just take Ocean Ave up to highway 1). Pebble Beach and the Seventeen Mile Drive are less than a 5 minute drive from this location as well. Big Sur is about 20 minutes to the south and the Monterey Airport is only a 5 minute drive up the 1.
Best Western Townhouse Inn is one of three Best Western's in Carmel By the Sea. This one is slightly further out from the main activity of Ocean Drive. Low rise, rooms open to the outside.
