We've stayed here three times, and each stay was very pleasant. They're dog friendly, and have a nice grassy area to take your dog, with all the cleanup supplies & trash can furnished. Although an older property, the room is very large, spotless, comes with a fireplace. and you're only 3 blocks from the main drag in Carmel. They also... More

My husband and I have stayed here twice, for two nights back in 2012 and again for two nights this past March 2014. We went for our anniversary each time. We picked the king suite with the 2 person jacuzzi tub and fireplace. It was amazing both times. They deliver a small cooler with a pint of milk and the... More

We stayed here for just one night, but after staying would have liked to stay one more. The staff was very welcoming and the room was super comfortable, with a nice fireplace and a breakfast area + kitchenette which was separated from the bedroom. They drop-off your breakfast in thermal bags. Very practical. Would come back!

This is a friend's place of choice when in Carmel. It's located within walking distance of downtown shopping and restaurants. Most amenities were consistent with our prior stay: lobby refreshments, on site parking, breakfast basket and paper in the morning. Updates include, keurig coffee maker, terry lined robes, new bedding covers.

Breakfast on the door step was convenient.There is so much stuff to do within a block or two of the hotel. The staff was super nice.... More

Whether a girl's weekend or with partner or family, this Inn is always our first choice. Location, location! The grounds are well groomed and the small pool is very clean. Staff is knowledgeable and very friendly. The rooms are incredibly clean, the beds have white cotton duvet covers, not some old smelly bedspread that someone else has been using! Lobby... More

I expected more from this property considering how much we paid to stay here. We selected it because of it's great location in Carmel, and because they are dog friendly. The property looks like a motel, and the "heated" pool was cold. The room we stayed in was small and nothing special. The bed was very uncomfortable and we did... More
