We stayed in Room 205 (Ocean View Lodge) on Father's Day weekend. We brought our 2 girls, ages 3.5 and 5 yrs. This hotel worked out GREAT for us. The suite is more like an apartment. A funky knotty pine kitchen, dining area with table and 4 chairs, brick fireplace, really large living room with pull out couch (plenty of room for pack n play or roll away), TV and then a king bed in the bedroom (another TV). We enjoyed sitting outside on the little patio while the girls played on the lawn. We also enjoyed having a fire on a chilly Carmel summer night. The basket they deliver for breakfast was a bonus. Granola, milk, juice, pastry or bagel and fruit. No need to go out. Bruno's Market down the street is a good place to pick up a few groceries and wine. They have a good deli too.
There is a city playground/park less than two blocks down the street. We discovered BBQ pits in the adjacent city parking lot. Did not use, but thought it was a good option.
I would recommmend driving to the beach, as the hike up the hill might be too tiring after playing on the beach. I am a Carmel native, and have stayed in lots of hotels in Carmel. We all agreed that we would come back and stay at this hotel- lots of room for your dollar. They give AAA discount.
