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

I had just one night here, but would have stayed longer. I stayed in M-5, room was spacious and had a small kitchen. The two women I met at the front desk were super friendly and helped me navigate the town, gave me some great restaurant recommendations. A great location. Breakfast wasn't anything great, but there are plenty of places... More

The Briarwood Inn is a quaint little Inn. We stayed in the Stafford room #40. It is on the bottom level and sits between two other rooms. We were thankful our neighbors were quiet. Others have said the decor is dated and I would agree. Our room was clean and in good repair. The room included off street parking which... More

Roomy for family of 5! Very quaint, beds are awesome comfy, two bathrooms and just enough kitchen to keep kids happy at breakfast and snack time at night. Price is right considering we would have needed two rooms for us in a hotel. Walking distance to anywhere in Carmel. If you need room for 5 this is awesome. Pictures on... More
