*good location, it's nearby the shops in carmel
*got us a deal for winter rates: chateau julienne wine + $25 voucher at "village corner" restaurant upon arrival
*office was really small + cute; you may take some fruits and tea, biscottis (although the front desk didn't offer you i assume it's for guests and they didn't say anything when i took it :D)
*room was cute, small, clean and nice. I'm not sure if cute means good to everyone, but I feel cozy in the room. It's quite romantic
*The bathroom size was quite okay, not too big, not too small
*amenities: gilchrist & soames face/ cleanse soaps/shampoo/showergel, bath salt, shower cap, body lotion, 2 bathrobes, some cloths especially for cleansing ladies' makeup, good amount of extra towels and 2 bathmat, 2 bottles of drinking water in the fridge (you can always ask the front desk if you need more water later but the front desk is close at night so you want to ask them before they close), coffeemaker, coffee(reg & decaf), extra blankets & pillow in the wardrobe area, 2 small mint chocolates, 2 wine glasses, 1 alcoholic beverage also provided in the crystal square decanter (i didn't drink it though because I'm not an alcoholic), blow-dryer, slim TV, electric firework that works like a heater that can change color when we set it up like that.
*Bed is clean and cozy. I could sleep easily on a queen size bed for 2 peeps
*They deliver & knock on your door around 8.30am for Breakfast: 2 hard-boiled eggs, 2 apples, 2 activia yogurts, & some pastries/quiche in the bag. If you're a vegan, you can only eat apples which is quite ok for a lil' bit, but it's not a fulfilling breakfast for vegan peeps.
*parking: they have small space on the side where the guests can park the car
*they have sitting area where your family can sit down together have some quality time together with firework & coal is provided there
*the front desk should offer us some welcome drink or tea/coffee. Instead they just checked us in. People cm from far away to carmel; I was hoping they would be more comforting to the guests that just arrive. I don't think they're impolite or anything, it's just they need to be better i suppose. The front desk people are just alright, they should be more attentive though. I guess I just expect better to give a 5*.
*the wall is too thin, so sometimes you can pretty much hear in mumble what other people are saying in the other room and you can even hear their steps too
*amenities: i stayed here for a couple of nights & the housekeeping provide the amenities differently everyday. It's just 1 day i have bath salt, and the next day i don't. 1 day i have 2 body lotions, the next day not. 1st day i have shower cap, the next day they don't give me a new one. The housekeeping at least have to maintain giving each day the same amenities
*housekeeper: they should not put the vacuum cleaner on the way path where people are going to walk especially the path is so small. They should not put any bags/trashbag whatever in the way path of walking. When they do, it's just look careless & not thoughtful at all; especially the space in this Inn is so small.
*Breakfast: we requests to get more fruit for my breakfast a couple of days before (over the phone when we booked this hotel deal) , but all i got was just the apples, not even orange or pear or anything else. They have orange & pears in the front desk area. Again, I expected more "attention" in really fulfilling the guests' requests. I believe they have a couple of people working in the front desk, but they just don't communicate to each other / leave any note of guest's request. So I would definitely highlight the attentiveness of the front desk is not maximum enough to give me a 5*
*They only have 1 small desk next to my partner to put my glass wine/anything else. They should put one more night desk next to me so that it's convenient to both sides
Overall, it was nice to live in MonteVerdeInn, i will recommend people to stay here & i hope they will fix all the things i've mentioned in here that are (-)s to be (+)s & all 5 * from me in the future.
