“Very Nice Carmel Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

Although it looks like an older motel from the 50's or 60's, it is very well maintained, and probably extensively remodel. Our room was clean and newer looking with a fireplace, balcony with a partial ocean view, and an updated bathroom.

The property is within walking distance (2 blocks) of most of the shops, restaurants, and art galleries. The beach is quite a hike though and up-hill on the return. We did pay extra for an "ocean View" only to see mostly fog -- probably the time of year.

Bottom line: We would definitely return, but in March we would likely skip the "ocean view" upgrade.

Arrived in Carmel late with no where to stay, we drove around for a while passing the Inn quite a bit. Being tired decided to give it a one night try. Ended up staying for 3 nights. Location was perfect for us loved the shops and street running down to the lovely beach. Hotel bed was crisp and clean everything we needed, we do not usually stay in an inn but we would stay here again. Breakfast was included and was adequate Nothing flash or expensive but it does the job I would recommend this inn.

The room was clean, but a bit worn. The Inn is in an excellent location and although on a major intersection in town, was very quiet. Great price for the area. Very friendly staff. Breakfast was simple but fine. We would stay here again for the price and location alone.

Just stayed here. The suite was a good size and cleanish. Minor grumble. Tea and coffe could be better quality with milk and not powder. Also provide spoons and not sticks. Breakfast, while there was sufficient, the presentation is really poor. Paper plates. Really! It is all about the feel good factor and we could not eat and get out of there quick enough. Will not return.

This motel was clean, with an an antique style of furniture that was surprisingly inviting and warm. We liked the little touches of having toffee candy in a covered dish that was replenished daily, the little mini fridge and microwave were an added nice touch. Bathroom was very clean, finished in marble, and they were well stocked with plenty of super white towels. The room was spacious and had a modern 42 inch flat screen TV inside the armoire which was again a nice touch for this motel. The free breakfast (continental) consisted of coffee/tea english muffin, mini bagels, cream cheese, butter and jam, assorted pastries (generic) and quaker oats. They also had cereal, apples, oranges and on occasion bananas. The location for the breakfast is on the second floor tucked in on a corner, and seating space is very limited so I suggest going there early (opens at 8:30-10:00). This motel is located in the edge of "Downtown Carmel". The lady serving breakfast was very nice and friendly, and she also worked at the front counter. You can tell that the owners/management care about the property and your stay, because they add little special touches of comfort here and there...

Room Tip: We stayed on the 2nd floor and found it to be quiet and spacious for a regular room. Our room had a...

We enjoyed the neat, clean room that was decorated very nicely. The location was super as it was within walking distance to ever so many wonderful places to explore! We checked in at 3 P.M. as the room was ready. No problems and the price is right! We'll be back!!
