“Very Convient Place To Stay, While You Walk Around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We stayed here for two nights the first of September, and enjoyed it very much. The fireplace and the private balcony were so enjoyable. Overall the place is very clean, and my only negative would be they need to convert from using bedspreads on their beds to what the more updated hotels/motels are doing, with the sheet, and a throw spread at the foot of the bed. The bedspread we had on our bed didn't seem to be clean, although I will say I didn't 'see' any dirt on it, but it smelled like stale body odor. Not nice! Other than that though, the room was clean, although it could use a little updating, and freshening up. Parking was never a problem for us, although I did see that other's mentioned it was for them. We stayed on the 4th floor, and had a designated parking spot, so it was great! We left our car parked at the hotel, and walked around town, to do the shops, it was much easier than trying to find a parking spot. Most of the parking has a 2 hour max parking time, and they ARE metered, so be careful if you do park!

I was pleasantly surprised at the price for this hotel. The room was small but very clean. The front desk staff is what made me decide between 2 hotels in the area. I loved all the beautiful flowers on the property and all throughout the town.I would go back if ever back in Carmel again.

We have stayed at this hotel several times over the last 35 years. We love the view from the Hilltop suites and always stay in one of the Hilltop rooms. The rooms have been redecorated several times and each time seems to take it down a notch. But overall the rooms are comfortable and clean. The noise from the seagulls perched and squawking on the fireplace chimney throughout the night and early morning hours was a problem on this visit.

We have stayed here several times and always get a room on the top two floors with a balcony, view and fireplace. We have always found the rooms clean and the staff very helpful. With Bruno's Market and Deli next door it's easy to grab something light and enjoy a light meal on the balcony while enjoying the view. Will keep going back.

Carmel-by-the-Sea is a beautiful destination. Staying at this hotel could ruin your entire trip. This property is apparently very old. It lacks air conditioning (which was needed), the walls are very thin (you can hear conversations in adjacent roooms perfectly) and the furniture is out-of-date. The prices charged should allow them to provide an up-scale experience.

Is this a trendy hotel? no! Is it very clean, very convenient, with a comfortable bed and an excellent value? Definitely. Loved the fact that an upscale deli/grocery is right next store. TV was a lower end sharp but whose there to watch TV? room got a bit stuffy so we opened the window and it cooled quickly - It is the coast. Breakfast is very buffet style as you what you'd expect.

This is a well located and well kept property. Within walking distance of shopping, restaurants and theater. The beauty of this property is that it has suites or separate bedrooms. Perfect for privacy.
