My wife and I have stayed in 5 star hotels in the US, Europe, Africa and Asia, and in a dirt-floored Rwandan roundavel. This place is none of these, but it is a clean, comfortable, convenient, place in the near-center of Carmel. It is staffed by friendly, helpful, and competent people. The breakfast is simple ... fruit, sweet roll, dry... More

An OK hotel. Property is a bit dated and the room decor is awful (in the eye of this beholder). The sponged on colors on the walls could give you nightmares. The breakfast is a basket delivered to your room. We knew this going in, but it still isn't great. Too much sugary snacks - would be better being more... More

Look for "Carmel Oaks" on sign, Clarion is in tiny letters. Property is in great location, walk to beach, cafes, shops. Our room rundown, walls unfinished, gaping holes where towel rack supposed to be. Towels piled on toilet. Good shower. Comfortable bed. Efficient fridge. No microwave. Poor breakfast only starches, a red apple, milk and OJ. Good heater. Hotel ran... More

OK, the Good: Great location, reasonable price, comfortable bed, nicely decorated room, unique breakfast serving. Now, the Bad: Disinterested desk clerk, no window locks, small (though nice) bathroom, no closet door/cover, 'bare' windows with just blinds, hard to read signage outside, especially at night, we drove by first, then realized the small print at the bottom said Clarion Collection. The... More

The Clarion Collection Carmel is a great combination of being a comfortable stay, a good value and in a great location. Carmel can be a expensive place to stay but Clarion Collection is much more reasonably priced than most options in Carmel. Our room was nicely decorated and had remodeled & modern bathroom that would do a 4 star hotel... More

This hotel was very reasonable priced for being in the centre of Carmel and just 10 minutes away from the beach. The room was small and clean, there was free parking and breakfast gets delivered to your door in the morning which consists of a pastry, cereal, milk, juice, fruit and a newspaper - I thought this was a lovely...

Clarion Collections usually are a step above their Choice Hotels properties but this motel needs to improve greatly. It was very difficult to find since the name of the old property is on the sign with the words "Clarion Collection" added below in very small letters. Upon check-in the clerk did not acknowledge us or tell us anything. I found... More

Room: Absolutely awful. VERY DAMP, VERY MUSTY, VERY SMELLY. Condensation running down the inside of the very poor fitting windows. No curtains, poor fitting blinds which people could see through. We were on ground floor on main road so we had to hang clothes off the rails to block people seeing in. We need to go to a laundry now... More

For one night in Carmel, the Clarion was fine. It's dated but clean. The bathroom is small. The breakfast basket was nice but not all that we wanted. In our room, there was no A/C or way to get cross ventilation. So we had to open the opaque window in the bathroom to get some air, which allowed anyone to... More

1. We stayed a Saturday and Sunday night in August in a queen suite for about $200 and $110 per night respectively, before the 10% Carmel hotel tax. 2. This was an 'advance purchase' nonrefundable price, on the comfortinn web site. 3. Previously I had stayed at the discounted 'returnee' rate, available by phone, for returning guests. 4. You can...
