We went February 17-19th and this was our first time. We stayed in the penthouse suite and love every moment of it. This was a family trip and the penthouse suite did it's job.....from utensils, plates, cups, to all kinds of cooking wares. It felt like home! This suite was very cozy with a fireplace and best part of it was that it was isolated from the other room. We're young adults and totally love this place. It was close to everything and very easy to find. Would definately recommend this place and totally stay again.

althought this B&B doesn't have heater it gets very warm at night, so there would be no need for a heater. From what I heard, most if not all B&B don't have heaters.

Hope this helps you pick a nice and cozy place. :) Love this place!

Nice room, very friendly staff, decent breakfast and old school videos to check out. Great location walking distance to restaurants and shops. We'd come again!

Just back from nice 2 night stay in Carmel. Nice older property. Stayed in Dickens room, #49. Room was large with mini kitchen, good bathroom. Good mattress(king bed) but really high off floor. Gas fire place, large flatscreen tv. Even had bottle of local wine in room but that may have been part of livingsocial 1/2 price deal we got. Big storms 1st night and we survived heavy winds and rain with no problems. Light breakfast in office had very cramped space with small tables. Could have taken back to room. Very nice place just a couple of blocks from heart of downtown section.

Stayed in #48 upstairs. Very clean w/ gas fireplace & jacuzzi in the middle of the room. Friendly inn keeper. They do have larger rooms w/ separate sitting area and bedroom. Covered parking space on property. Did not have the breakfast, but looked nice in the lobby. Rate of $150.00. Perfect for walking in town.

No parking for guests. Pushed out of the office and told they had no time to check us in. We want our money back! We left a day early and expect to be reimbursed for the day we did not stay at this dump. Sleep in your car. You'll be better off.
