We chose the Mission Ranch over several other Carmel properties, and I'm glad we did.
The location was perfect -- on the edge of town (yes, you can walk it), but not in the center of the action. The room was huge -- upstairs, in one of the Meadowview triplex buildings, great bathroom. The view was spectacular -- mountains, ocean, and sheep. The food was delicious -- continental breakfast (which is all we eat anyway), and a bustling dining room/patio for dinner. The grounds were well-kept -- we were there in early May, and everything was in full bloom. And the staff was great -- every question was answered, every request was handled professionally.
It's not for everyone -- the vibe is relaxed and authentic, not precious or trying to hard to be chic and romantic. But if you're looking for an understated, yet upscale place in Carmel, this one deserves a look. (One example of that? Clint Eastwood stood next to us at the bar one night. No one bothered him. And he waited for his table like everyone else.)
We've stayed in other Carmel properties. But this just become our favorite spot.
