This cabin style accomodation was perfect for our 3 day vacation in Carmel. It fit our budget and our desire to travel with our dog. The room was surprisingly roomy and well-appointed and, while others complained about the heat source being from a gas fireplace, I loved it. Our front desk host, Ricky, couldn't have been nicer or more well-organized. We had called ahead to request a room at the back of the resort in order to be further from street traffic noise and he had exactly what we wanted available when we checked in at 3:00 pm. We also got the refrigerator in our room that we requested (not all the rooms have refrigerators) - and it was the a very quiet one and didn't bother us at night when it turned on.
There were a few issues but the good things about this hotel really outweighed the bad things. When we first went to our room it was not yet made up so we went for a walk and came back. There were two light bulbs out in the bathroom but there was plenty of light and they seem to be short staffed on maids so we didn't complain. The grounds are in need of attention and, while I enjoyed the hot tub I was a little nervous about how frequently it gets maintenance.
The pet fee is reasonable and our well behaved dog had a great time here. No room-next-door noises to make him bark and his own little yard.
I stay at hotels that include breakfast and this one delivers it right to your room - what a wonderful idea! I loved that and I loved the fact that there was so much food we actually had lunch sometimes too!
