this hotel was beautiful and spacious. it was about 8 miles away from the heart of Carmel, but totally worth the drive. Our room was a suite and there were four of us and there was plenty of room for all of us without tripping over each other. We even had a fireplace- which was nice. You wouldn't think that you'd need one in California in July, but we used it every day.
The pullout couch was even really comfortable!
