Right next to a small supermarket and short walk to the rest of town. Polite, friendly and helpful front desk staff. Con - the hotel was a little... More

This hotel was much more than we expected. Very well maintained with friendly & most helpful staff . Location is ideal for walking into town or beach. Large rooms, nice pool and decent breakfast. Carmel - by- the- sea is in a world of charm all its own and this place suits it perfectly.

We have stayed here several times, all during the summer. Each time we have asked the front desk for a fan because the room gets very hot, & the rooms do not have a.c. We were so uncomfortable this time during the heat wave in Carmel, I doubt that we will stay here again. Other than that, it's a great... More

This hotel is in a great location in Carmel. You can park your car there and walk all over town. There are several wonderful restaurants right across the street and many great shops. The walking wine tour starts just down the street. The rooms are very nice and nicely priced. Each has a gas fireplace and a view of the... More

My wife and I spent a night at this hotel and it was a lovely experience. They did a wonderful job with the remodel. It's an old place but it's in beautiful shape and the service was spectacular. The free breakfast was a nice plus.

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???
