Having never been to Carmel before I did my search online for a B&B one night stay mid week in July. While I was traveling with my sister, my niece and her two year old we were pleased to find two queen beds. The beds were comfortable and it was nice to have complimentary Wi Fi connection. This location was perfect to park our car off the street and it was convenient to walk to everything. I appreciated that their website offered views of the rooms and it was exactly as it was pictured. It also had a small refrigerator in the closet that was perfect for a few items that needed to be chilled. We stayed in room #42 on the ground floor and this unit had a four chair patio table just outside that seemed to add that simple touch of outdoors and make the room feel just a little bit more spacious. The breakfast was simple as I expected with only cold items and the breakfast room is tight with limited seating. It likely would have been a better option for us if we'd taken our breakfast tray back to our patio table than to feel we were a part of everyone's conversation in the room. The staff that attended to our check in and check out were friendly and offered us discount cards for restaurants that we may wish to consider. One recommendation was The Forge in the Forest and it was a perfect dining spot for lunch and only a few blocks from the B&B. As others posted they offered complimentary videos and had port and sherry complimentary at the end of the day which we did not partake in. We completed our day with a quick visit to Point Lobos and on to Carmel Beach to watch the sunset and enjoy California wines, cheese, crackers and fresh strawberries. A perfect 24 hours in Carmel!
