I picked this hotel because it offered a "Family Suite", which was $329, and included a queen size bed with two twins. The outside of the inn was quaint, a la Carmel, which was expected. But we did not expect the dilapidated mess that was inside. The twin beds were rickety, with spring mattresses that bounced and creaked all night when my boys turned in their sleep. There is NO air conditioning and just a loud rotating stand fan; it felt totally third world to have to use a rotating fan when we paid $329 for the one night! The bathroom window, which was the only way to get air in the room had no screen, so we had to choose air or bugs! The "onion skin" thin sheets had holes and rips in them and the comforter that looked OK in the pictures was actually seriously pilled, with shams and pillow that were ripped. The "kitchenette" was not upgraded, but horribly painted as if by a child, with a rusted sink and a range that must have been 20 years old. The worse was the bathroom sink that did not drain, and we had to brush our teeth with disgusting water stopped up in the sink. The carpet was filthy. We feel totally ripped off at $329 for one night. For that money in Las Vegas, for example, you get a top of the line suite. At a minimum, there should have been clean and top quality mattresses and bedding. I took pictures because I want to make sure people see the truth about this place. The outside of the inn was also inexcusably filthy. Don't book this place, You are much better off getting a chain hotel like the Vagabond or a Best Western, and just driving to the Carmel town center.
