Okay, they take pets. That's nice. But our room had a swiped up dog poop never cleaned. The bed was comfortable but the décor needs lots of work. Carpets are very old. Bedding doesn't match the carpet. Bathrooms are fairly clean but again very old and tiny. The sink is in the bedroom area. Room was musty. Over booking.com I... More

We booked this as all our first choices were already booked, we did not realise we were visiting on the busiest weekend of the year! We rang to say we would be late and were advised we must arrive by 9pm as the office closed then, we had been delayed by an accident on the Freeway out of SFO so... More

I'd read reviews and was a little nervous. This rustic little resort complex tucked amid the pines is charming, peaceful, convenient and a fantastic value. Our cottage for 2 nights equaled our friend's room across town for 1 night. Spacious room, deck with table and chairs, very comfortable king bed loaded with cozy comforters, electric fireplace heater with "logs and... More

I went there with a friend for two nights and we chose it because of the price. It was one of the few that we could afford, and we really wanted to visit Carmel. The location is great, a 5 minutes drive away from the centre and 10-15 minutes from Monterrey. The facilities consist in several cabins (some with little... More

We only stayed here for one night during our California road trip, but it was a pleasant little place. The room had all modern facillities and was a good size, The bungalows/cabins are spaced out nicely and there is a parking space outside each one. Breakfast was nice and delivered to your door. The location is just on the edge... More

'Resort' definitely doesn't describe this place.we booked a cottage with fire and got a wooden shack with a plug in something, it might have been an electric fire but the heat in the 'cottage' meant we didn't need it, obviously no air conditioning.needs major overhaul. I would not recommend it.wont even mention the breakfast. Couldn't wait to leave. On a... More

We had a comfortable room which was well equipped - iron, ironing board, hair dryer, coffee machine (although the coffee was weak). It was good to be able to park the car outside the room. Breakfast delivered to your door sounded good but yogurt, a banana and a muffin was not great. We set off walking into town for dinner... More

Our corner half a cottage was clean , the bed comfortable and the missing aircon was not needed. A very long walk into the town centre where parking is at a premium. Breakfast basket kept us going until lunchtime. Old style buildings in need of a make-over. Off street parking was a plus.

The rooms are small but comfortable and clean. There is no airconditioner however we didn’t need cooling at the time we stayed and had a good sleep - may not be the case in summer. The breakfast is fairly poor. It is a long walk to shops or the beach, but the price is low and reflects the location.

This resort was $195 per night, which I realize by Carmel standards is a bargain. The positive things were the cottages were cozy and the breakfast delivered to your door was great. The negatives were the smell in the cottage--a cross between cigarettes and that "old" smell, no screens on the windows, and thus, bugs flying in. The walls had... More
