My husband and I stayed in the hotel for 2 nights while visiting Carmel. The location was great! We could easily walk to almost all of the shopping and restaurants in downtown. Also, the staff was very friendly. We had easy access to parking below the hotel. The room was large enough for two people and very clean. The only... More

We stopped off here for a night on a trip down PCH. Really handy location, walking distance into town, shops nearby etc. The room had a balcony with a nice view, parking just outside, and good facilities. The complimentary buffet breakfast was brilliant, loads to choose from and you could get coffee refills, fruit etc to take away with you... More

The rooms at this inn aren't new, but they are well-cared for. The furniture isn't fancy, but comfy, clean and adequate. Some rooms have fireplaces with gas logs. The rooms are reminiscent of small English or German inns: cozy, functional -- wonderful to flop down in after a long day of sight-seeing or shopping. The staff is friendly and helpful.... More

This hotel has a great view of the ocean. It is conveniently located to so many terrific restaurants and shops. We spent the entire day just exploring. The houses are all unique. We found the beach to be so very relaxing and charming at the same time.

We made last minute plans to spend a birthday weekend in Carmel and after some research and seeing the generally prohibitive rates for properties in the areas, were much relieved to find a venue that suited us ideally. There is of course never telling until one arrives and get in the room - we couldn't be happier with the level... More

My husband and I enjoyed staying at this updated property. We had a standard king room with a gas fireplace. It was attractive, clean and comfortable. The wifi reception was good. The breakfast had a good variety. The village with it's many shops and restaurants was a short walk away. We would definitely stay here again.

Right in the middle of Carmel, walk to shops and restaurants. Love the fireplace in the room. Friendly, very helpful staff at the front desk. Great rate for this price. Perfect place to stay and enjoy Carmel.

* Pool hours need to be open beyond 8pm. * Towels should be made available at the pool. The front desk provided towels, but also suggested that we'd be charged for them if they weren't in our room afterwards. That strikes me as distrustful and evidence of the management nickel-and-diming. * Carpeting in hotel rooms needs to be changed badly.... More

We were lucky enough to get the two room family suite. One room had two queen beds and the other room had a king bed and then there was a common area. The beds are comfortable and the room was clean. Just wish there would've been a TV in the common area so we all weren't so separated. The breakfast... More
