“Pleasant Suprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

I booked in here mainly as they were right in the heart of Carmel but I would admit to some trepidation as some of the poor reviews combined with the low rate I was quoted for 2 rooms had me thinking.

I had no reason to worry. The staff at the reception were excellent and the rooms really well decorated. Yes they are small and to some degree a little "worn". They are however very clean and looked very nice. The previous night we stayed at a place that cost me over twice what this night cost for a very spectacular place but for the rates I was charged I am really very happy.

I guess the proof of that is that I would be happy to stay here again.

Room Tip: We had two connecting rooms on the ground floor (15 and 16 from memory). Great economical option for...

The location of the Motel is great .... right in the heart of the Ocean Ave shopping area. Free parking and can walk everywhere, The rooms are really dated ,,,,old beat up furniture & carpets however, still comfortable with a decent bed & flat screen TV. Bathroom was a little updated with a new counter on an old cabinet. We were three couples and we enjoyed our stay, especially for only $79 a night. The breakfast was great. Yummy egg knish, waffles, cereal, hot oatmeal, freshly cut fruit & coffee & orange juice. Really good for a motel breakfast. The staff really needs some coaching in smiling and greeting guests. They were not rude, but lacked hospitality skills.

For $234/night, the room is not worth it. The furniture are all outdated. The floor carpet is old.

Wrote an email to the manager about an inquiry but never got a response. This hotel is not even listed in the local tourist map.

We booked this for a one nights stop on our Cali Road trip.
We adore Carmel and it really should be a must stop destination on a trip to California.
This motel is well located and with free car parking and as we stayed midweek we were pleased with the £85 price.
Its a well presented motel , prettily decorated with flowers and a small outdoor seating area. There are some seats and tables outside of rooms on the upper balconies
The young lady at check in gave us a friendly welcome, talked us through the map and gave us room 29 which had a view down the mainstreet.
The room was spacious and clean with coffee maker, closet was part of the bathroom and the bathroom had both bath and shower.
Breakfast was in a pretty room next to the office with hot and cold selections.

Room Tip: Upper rooms 27, 28, 29 will get you main street views

Can't beat the location! Right opposite main shopping area. Built a long time ago before soundproofing was invented. Breakfast good for USA motel standards. Small problem with lighting attended to immediately.

Room Tip: Downstairs rooms can be noisy.

We only stayed one night, but this was a great hotel with a great location. Situated right in the heart of Carmel. This is an older hotel but was clean and tidy. A very good breakfast included in the price. everything you need for a quick stopover.

Stayed there only for one night. Old hotel... Smells like old, sheets and towels were old. Thermostat didn't work. Staff in a bad mood, at check in and check out. Breakfast was ok, no big deal. Free parking. Good location.
