We used Living Social vouchers, which included either a queen or king room. I asked for king, but we were in room 41 with two queens which ended up being just fine. The room was large, lots of windows, and easy access. We were able to park on the property and walked everywhere. The location was close to restaurants and... More

My husband and I took a quick 3 day trip to Carmel (luckily we live only 2 hours away!) and our timing was perfect. Best weather I have ever seen there and I have lived in and around the area 40 years! Even if it was the usual Carmel fog and cold we would have liked our room, and then... More

We stayed for several days. The rooms are clean and airy, beautifully decorated. Continental breakfasts were the best I've ever had. Exceptionally quaint! Walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. Dog friendly, but no tell-tale odors. The yard and flowers were nice. I was very happy and content with our stay. Thank you so much for all of your... More

Our room was spacious and CLEAN! The staff was friendly and we enjoyed our morning breakfast of tasty pastries and fresh, sweet fruit. We were a short, pleasant walk from charming downtown Carmel, fine dining and art galleries galore and a brisk walk from the beautiful beach. And the weather was perfect! We plan to stay at the Briarwood Inn... More

I had a Living Social voucher which I had made a reservation with and I had to cancel at the last minute. These guys really bent over backward to help me out with customer service. Although they didn't have to, they honored another reservation for the next month. The room was very spacious, clean and the bed was great for... More

We stayed here in #42 for 2 nights. This room has a queen bed plus a single bed, a fireplace and a little sitting area. Even though this room allows pets and we don't have any, the room was very clean and no smell of pets. The shower had plenty of hot water. You get one parking space for this... More

I've already reviewed this property and it was just as nice this time as last. What I want to add is they have an upstairs room with a large hot tub in the living room. Not in the middle of it but on one side next to the bathroom, but in it's own enclosure. My wife and I enjoyed it... More

We stayed two nights here, in November. Outside it's just lovely, with vines growing thick on the walls. The town is tiny, so every place is close by. Parking is free, and parking in town is problematic, so just walk for 5-10 minutes and you're anywhere you might want to go. It was not only very clean, but atmospheric. We... More
