My wife and I had a very nice stay at this hotel. Very nice breakfast set up with good coffee. The hotel was right around the corner from great shops and restaurants. Very nice pool and the view was great. We could see the Pacific Ocean when we looked out.

We loved the convenience of the grocery and wine, the access to downtown and the comfort of the hotel. We stayed in the junior suite with a Sleep away couch which we used for the kids. They had their own space..we had ours. It was perfect for our quick stay. It was very clean. The beach was just blocks away!... More

This hotel was perfect for what I like in a place, park at the door, great bedding and plenty of room. We had a suite which came with a full size living room, with a small gas log fireplace, along with a nice sized bedroom and a large renovated bathroom. Sitting in the LR with the fire going and the... More

We had a comfortable room with more space than many hotels in Carmel. Would stay there again. They offer breakfast also, but it is just so so. It's in a great location allowing one to walk to nearby shops and restaurants.

Just a wonderful place...A throwback to the good old days when service, cleanliness, and overall experience counted for something. This is not a "cookie-cutter" motel-it's way, way better. Book a stay here before everybody else finds it !!!

Great location and view of the ocean in downtown Carmel. The top floor rooms are worth the price, clean older facility. Only criticism is they need to replace the roof, the cedar shakes have served their time. A new pressed metal shake like roof would be a nice replacement

This Hotel is the ideal getaway address for Carmel in every category. I mentioned it on Trip Advisor last year as well. Next door is Surf and Sand where we had a delightful dinner with the winemaker of FRANCISCAN WINES in Napa Valley. 5 Courses, 5 wines tax and tip included for $49. You cannot beat this price anywhere. This... More

My husband and I really enjoyed the hotel. It was nice and clean witha a really enjoyable breakfast. We also really liked the location because we like to walk for excercise because and this was a few blocks from the beach, only a couple blocks to main part of town and there were shops and restaurants all around.

Great central location in Carmel. Room 47, corner unit has excellent large deck and south and west views. Highlight of the unit. Don't expect anything else to reach this level. Furniture, drapes and carpet have seen better days and any walking around causes the windows and sliding door to vibrate. Bathroom has been updated and staff cleans the room well.... More
