My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights on our honeymoon. What a nice place! The room was huge. (We were in room 12). The room had a fridge and gas fireplace! Since we were on the first floor, we didn't have much of a view, but I would imagine on the 2nd floor you can see the ocean. They bring breakfast to your room each morning which was great. They also have cookies in the lobby in the afternoon. I helped myself to one and it was tasty.
Carmel is a pretty great town and this hotel is one of my favorites on this 2 week trip. The only downside is that the parking lot is pretty small, but if you don't plan on driving once you are in Carmel (It is so small, you don't have to), then it isn't a problem.
