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

Pros: Very comfy bed with lovely cosy sheets and blankets. Clean sheets and towels. Low price compared to other similar places. Own parking space. Cute individual 'cottages'. Nice breakfast hamper delivered to the door (muffin, pastry, 2x yoghurts, fruit, 2x juice cartons). Short drive to Carmel (very sweet, quaint village\town, nice beach and shops) Cons: Very out dated decor but... More

We weren't expecting much based on the fact that we paid $100 for the one night we were in Carmel. The cottages are roomy enough but they need to get a better decorator. The bedding and chair fabric was from out of the 60's. We were traveling with another couple and we both had the same deal ($100) a night.... More
