This is a perfect hotel if you are in search of a place where you can just get away from it all. The cabin style accomodation is nice for someone in search for privacy. It is also situated a little off the town centre so you are clearly away from everything. This however could be the downside for some (including me). Carmel by itself is a quaint town and the Carmel resort inn really epitomizes it. There are no street lamps in Carmel so searching for this hotel during the night can be a great challenge. It has no big billboard and its almost pitch black in the area at night. Worse there is no mobile phone signal in this hotel.
We got one of the cabins at the end of the inn. So we were in a fairly quiet place. There was supposed to be a free wifi but unfortunately it doesnt seem to reach our end of the hotel. The rooms were huge in fairness. We even had a small bar fridge and a microwave oven. There was a cozy fireplace and the bed was spacious enough. The TV however was not working and there was no one answering in the reception to fix it at night. The rooms come with a breakfast basket which was nice- simple but filling. They gave us fruits, coffee, yoghurt, a croissant and 2 halves of a blueberry and poppy seed muffin.
I like the hotel but it is just way to remote for me.
