This was our 3 stay here in the past year. Prior to trip we had several requests which were accommodated. I forgot that not all rooms include shower/tub, so the staff did some scrambling to meet our request, but were happy to make it happen. Once again the staff at the CT were polite and helpful. This was a smaller... More

This hotel was very quaint in the town of Carmel By the Sea. Easy access to beach being one block away. Room was fairly small, but location made up for this. Staff was very friendly and helpful and I would definitely stay here again!

love this place! we have stayed many times after discovering it online. The cottage feel and lovely courtyard are charming. The close walk to beach and the quiet makes it even better! We will be returning many more times!

Loves the remote feel but close access to beach and town. Rooms were clean and luxurious with gas fireplaces and perfect after a rainy day of driving down coast. Loved the 'cottage' arrangement and main building

Enjoyed the room, we wanted to stay an extra night and the staff got us into another room since ours was already booked. They helped us move our bags and items too. All the staff were great and friendly.
