We had high hopes for our trip to Carmel. After staying at the Hyatt Highlands in Carmel several years ago, we decided to stay in the town itself. We were disappointed in our room, and actually checked out a day early. While there are many pluses to staying in town, the easy walk to the beach, great shops and dining, we were not prepared for the "inn" experience. We may have had too high an expectation. Unfortunately for us, there is a new building going up next door and the sound of hammers was constant during the day. The walls of the inn are very thin, and as we were on the second floor, we had noise above, below and beside us. Tip for those considering: ask for the third floor, and if possible an end unit. We were shocked at the level of noise and the inconsiderate neighbors who were very loud at all hours. Anyone traveling to Carmel must love dogs, and this inn also allows them. If you have allergies, then you will have issues. We felt that the bedding was subpar, and the carpeting was worn and had some suspicious spots. On the plus side, the staff were very friendly, and there is a wide variety of helpful guides right outside the office. The location is superb. Unfortunately the location could not make up for the noise and disappointment.
