Our stay at this hotel was quite nice. As others have stated, the hotel is right off highway 1, and a very short drive to Carmel-by-the-Sea and also to Monterey. We visited the area for two days, and enjoyed our stay. We opted-out of the pre-pay breakfast, as we felt it was a bit pricey. We were also allowed to... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, as the staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast was delicious. The rooms were spacious and clean, if not fancy, and we really liked being right off of highway 1 south of Carmel. This made our 3 day exploration of Point Lobos and Big Sur very accessible compared to basing ourselves further north... More

Our stay worked out pretty well. The hotel is relatively convenient; right on highway 1. You can hop on and easily get to Carmel, Monterey and Point Lobos. It is not in reasonable walking distance to anything, however. The rooms are clean and reasonably roomy. We got a room on the top floor with a balcony - was nice to... More

This property is a decent choice for those traveling with younger children, who will appreciate the chance of an energetic swim in the hotel's pool after a long day tramping around the sites with mom and dad. We noted many foreign tourists on our visit and these seemed quite happy with their choice. This is a relatively (and I stress... More

Both the indoor and outdoor ambience of the hotel were excellent, and the lobby and rooms were nicely appointed. The outdoor area was attractive and inviting, and in addition to the pool and hot tub, we enjoyed the ping pong, outdoor tables, and area around the fire. The hotel offered a good value in the dinner buffet, which we enjoyed.... More

The furniture was new and in excellent shape and also beamed in from the '60's. I loved it. The outdoor fireplace and tables was nice to sit and chat around. It was good value for the money. They were very nice about suggesting we park our BMW motorcycle in front of the windows for the lobby so that someone could... More

Stayed one night in June when travelling down Highway 1 from SF to LA. We got, after an hours wait, a big room facing the pool area with superb beds, safe in room and a spacious bathroom. Just perfect for our family of three. During our stay, parking, wifi and breakfast was complimentary. Very much appreciated. The hotel and its... More

Wow! Thank you for the review of our Carmel hotel. You mentioned the free breakfast which is part of our bed and breakfast package available only on our website or by calling the hotel direct. Thanks for also mentioning the free Wi-Fi as we just recently did a major upgrade to our system. Leisure, business and our group business have... More

This hotel is pretty nice and very easy to find. The room was a little small but was clean and comfy. There was not much a view but we weren't there to enjoy a view. The bonus of this hotel was the awesome farmers market that takes place in an adjoining parking lot on Tuesdays!

My daughter and I stay here for two nights during our tour of the California coast. The hotel was right off of Highway 1. The room was a little worn and literally "very green". It's a motel with rooms surrounded by a swimming pool. Luckily, our room didn't face the pool because there were a lot of young kids having... More

We are frequent visitor to the area. During our last min trip we decided to stay here. Don't expect ocean front but the rooms are clean, modern and spacious. I also think they deserve an extra star as they had bathrobes and decent toiletries. The facility is at a great location with easy parking.
