My partner from Australia came to town during busy weekend (we didn't realized there was Monterey Jazz Festival going on). The first 2 nights we stayed in another inn, and the last 2 nights when I thought the whole town would have sold out, I called visitor center and Lisa informed me about this availability.. and so there we stayed - in room M-5. Since the minute I called the inn, saw the room, and checked in with Mimi - I think that was her name. She was very nice and helpful throughout our stay - we feel happy already. The room was located on the second floor with private stairs and entrance, kind of setting back from the front of the house. The room doesn't share wall with others, and right below is housekeeping area. Shower in the bathroom.. small, but surely enough for us. Q size bed, 2 chairs and coffee table, electric fireplace, wall-mounted flat screen TV, DVD player, and... small kitchennette equipped with oven and stove, tea pot, coffee maker, all cooking utensils, fridge, bar stool. The housekeeper does a great job by keeping everything in the shipshape (we met her during our stay and she was friendly, too bad I forgot to ask her name). We spent a lot of time exploring Carmel and surrounding area, and we got back to the room we felt like going back home. My partner Steve was on his 2 months vacation visiting 9 states and stayed in many expensive hotels throughout the nation..but he said he never felt this cozy and comfortable. We both had amazing time. I know for sure that next time he comes back to visit me, we'll stay in that room M-5 again.
Thank you Briarwood Inn for making this stay wonderful.
Inge and Steve.
