We stayed here in one of the second-floor, two bed/two bath suites. It was four adults and a 1-1/2-year-old. Nice check-in, good breakfast quiches and pastries, sunny decor and good light in our room (# 7), excellent jetted tub in one of the bathrooms, and cozy fireplace. Only about 4 blocks to the main drag of Carmel, ie Ocean St. We did not have a dog; other guests did, but it was lovely. I never heard dogs barking in the morning or at night, etc.. We all had a good time and enjoyed our stay. We would consider returning next time we travel to Carmel.
