Our family of four stayed in the Carmel Garden Inn in August 2013. The room was spacious - a very comfortable King sized bed, and pull out sofa, a little sitting nook with a mini-fridge and coffee maker, a small bathroom, a flat screen tv, and even a fireplace. There was a private brick courtyard out front of our room. The hotel feels old - but in a good way, like it has solid bones. The bathroom is small, and the shower tiny, but it was so charming I didn't really care. They provided a delicious breakfast plus afternoon wine and cheese, both free of charge. The hotel staff were very nice. We got a last minute room and only stayed two nights (normally I believe there's a 3 night minimum that time of year - it was during Carmel's car show). At a little more than $200/night it was a steal by Carmel standards. An easy 5 minute walk to the main strip, with restaurants, galleries, etc. The only thing to consider is that the hotel is above the village in a quiet neighborhood, not down near the water. This was fine for us. First choice for us when we return to Carmel. As an aside - we are not big car fans, but the car show was fabulous. And of course if you are in Carmel you must go to Point Lobos.
