Just spent two nights at L'Auberge Carmel and were blown away by the experience. Hands down they have the most attentive and friendly staff of any place I've ever stayed. The room was charming and the attention to detail was amazing. My husband loved the milk and cookies at bedtime. Can't wait to return!

One night in Carmel--where to stay? We are so glad we chose L'Auberge Carmel. Highest level of service we have experienced in a long while, beginning with the way the staff made parking in congested Carmel a non-issue. Couldn't have been easier, even though we had needed the car again an hour or so after we checked in. The setting... More

Expensive, but if you don't mind paying for quality then it's worth every penny. Their restaurant, Aubergine, is 5 star quality just like the hotel....and friendly without being stuffy. I will return.

My wife and I, booked a last minute reservation. The manager and all the staff were friendly and extremely accommodating. We have never had better service.

I booked a room for my girlfriends birthday. We were literally treated like royalty from the moment we walked through the doors until we checked out. The staff and custermer service surpasses any Resort I have stayed. I have stayed at some of the most well renowed Resorts Dana Pointe, The Four Seasons, to the Miomo destination Resort in Sodona,...

Excellant hotel and great service, we were there for 3 nights te celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We could not have asked for anything more and the staff was as good as you could ask for. We would stay there again anytime that we would be in the area. I highly recommended the hotel.

This was maybe the best hotel I've ever stayed at in the US. We like Relais & Chateaux properties because they are small, personalized and with amazing restaurants. This was not the exception.

We were really expecting the quality of a Relais Chateau hotel and were disappointed. First off, please hire friendlier people..the young girl was quite snotty upon check in and check out. The dinning room was sparse and very unattractive. Who did their decorating?? It does not go with the character of the hotel. And the breakfast was not hot and... More
