This was such a nice place to stay. The managers are so sweet. They allow dogs and since we had one with us, that was great. We had a one bedroom/living area/bath and it was perfect. We wanted to stay there again on our way home, but they were filled up. Not surprising. I would stay here again in a... More

The cottages are very cute, and the area is a quiet one just outside of Carmel Village. The electric fireplace was a hoot--throwback to the 1970's! It took about 15-20 minutes to walk downtown, just as the staff had mentioned. The walk can be steep at times, FYI. There was some confusion about the breakfast time. They said it would... More

The cabin's are are cute and quaint, they have everything you need, large spacious lounge/bedroom and adequate bathroom. The fire place is a it wrong but I can see what they... More

I stayed a night here in December. The room was clean, well maintained, and well stocked with towels, amenities (soap, shampoo, lotion). Breakfast came promptly and was more than ample -- two yogurts, apple, banana, clementine, muffins, mango and peach juice. Bed comfortable.. Staff were efficient and courteous. Parking ample. Easy to find in the somewhat confusing street layout of... More

I stayed here with my dog for 6 nights while waiting for the condo I rented to be ready to move in. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I appreciated that it's pet friendly. Each cottage is different and unique. Please remember this isn't some ritzy Carmel hotel and keep in mind the cottages were built in the early... More

We liked the location and the breakfast was decent. However, this is probably one of the most poorly maintained hotels I have ever stayed at in in my life. When we arrived at 8PM, there was a wet bath towel in the bathroom. There was a wet hand towel in the sink that had been used by someone to wipe... More

Comfortable and cozy room with gas heater, microwave, small fridge and coffee machine... The room isn't big but enough for a couple. Breakfast is delivered every day around 8:30 am and is good and fresh! Good choice for 2 or more days... The bad side is its location: not walking distance from downtown / around 10min by car.

A long walk into town, streets not lighted and dark at night, but but most importantly, very indifferent service: Breakfast supposed to be delivered to room between 8 and 9, but on half the mornings, it never came at all; and a sink that would not drain that was never fixed, although mentioned to the front desk at least twice....

We stayed here 6 or 7 years ago during the winter and liked it except that the heater did not warn up the room enough for us. After reading all the current reviews, we were a little reluctant to stay here again. However, we got a good deal on the One-Bedroom King Cottage and stayed for 2 nights. It is... More
