First the positive: Clean and convenient to Bruno's Deli (next door). One mile to Carmel Mission and not far to beach. Good breakfast but too small a space. Negative: unfriendly front desk at check in around 3pm on Saturday (July). Ok clerk on check out (Monday morning). Look for bathroom glasses in closet???

We had a terrific stay on our way down the California Coast. Enjoyed the beach and then returned for wine on the deck looking out over the ocean. Nice location, nice feel, good price and wicked beds. Enough said, great spot.

We stayed at this motel from Tuesday through Friday last week. Our room was on the 4th floor, had a very relaxing view of the ocean, was clean and comfortable. The staff was very corteous. Breakfast was typical for Best Western, not great, but adequate. This motel is walking distance to shops and restaurant and the beach is close also.... More

An Older motel, but very clean, Nice sized room with gas fireplace, The bath rowels are gigantic, at least five foot long. The staff was friendly, A little noisy, but not bothersome. You could hear the maid vacuuming in the next room, but, hey, at least you know she's cleaning. Plus it only lasted a few minutes, There's a small... More

We've stayed here 3 times and have enjoyed every stay! The ocean view from the balcony on the top floor is wonderful. The location is perfect since the hotel is right in town. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfast area is very convenient for hotel guests.

What a lovely little hotel! I chose it based not only on price, but street-Googled the area and it seemed quite nice. After having been there though, any street in Carmel would have been wonderful. The room was quaint, comfortable and clean. I love the scent of the bath products and snagged the hand lotion for my purse. The young... More

Hotel itself was not too bad. Water in shower suddenly turned very hot and burnt my wife. Informed management and was told it would be fixed for next guest. How does that help my wife? One more thing I did not care for was the slamming of the doors. Could hear doors slam by maids who were cleaning rooms. Doesn't... More

I found this hotel on the internet and after reading many positive reviews, I booked four nights for my wife and myself for a leisure trip to the area. We had a wonderful 4th floor corner room (47), which I requested based on reviews. It had a wonderful wrap around deck with lounge chairs and a . table with four... More
