My husband and I have stayed here a couple of times and have always enjoyed it. A few years ago we enjoyed it much more then recently, and I think it's because the rooms were quite new then. Now they are "tired" and look a bit abused (need new paint, floors, tile in the bathroom, etc.). I also notice that the floors always seem a bit gritty. Given that the hotel is just a few blocks from the beach this makes sense, but it can be a bit annoying if you're not expecting it. For the most part the hotel is quiet, just like the rest of Carmel in the evening, but I did notice that I could hear our neighbors TV on all night both nights that we stayed there. On this last visit we were also somewhat disappointed that we were promised room 1 when we made the reservation via phone and then when we arrived we were told that the guests in that room had "stayed over" and that we would have to take room 3 instead. Room 3 is smaller and darker, so we were a bit bummed out and their only solution was to give us a room at their sister hotel that would cost US over two times the amount per night. Overall, we'd stay here again for value and location, but hope that they consider updating the rooms and delivering room requests that they promise to their guests.
