Conveniently located, with pretty grounds, very friendly staff. Some rooms are half the size of all the others, however (double-double), and ours was cramped and had only one window looking out on walk-by. There was a dubious odor in the bathroom, doors didn't fit well so the building shook and there was noise each time someone opened or closed one of the warped doors (took some effort), and the breakfast -- while conveniently brought in a cheerful basket to your doorstep -- was a bit sparse: dry cereal encased in plastic bowls, 2 small sweetrolls in plastic wrap, fruit cup with semi-ripe melon, and only in-room coffee (the desk would provide tea or chocolate packets but you had to have gotten them the night before or be dressed to go get them in the morning).
Be sure to ask where your room is located because the inner-corner rooms are quite cramped. Also, I suspect rooms on lower level might be a bit dark.
Would go back again, but given the choice might look into other places first. Carmel is overpriced, and this room in mid-America wouldn't fetch $100.
