“Great View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Loved the view of the ocean. The hotel was further away from the ocean and shopping then I imagined. There is a market on the corner that's very handy. If you're there on the day they collect the garbage don't plan on sleeping in.

This is a quiet, very comfortable hotel in a lovely setting, far enough away from the main street noise but very close to everything. The beds and pillows are very comfortable and the rooms and bathrooms were meticulously clean. Parking and WIFI are free. The breakfast is also included in the price of the room and is served in a very pretty, airy, bright and cheery room. The food is routine breakfast fare, with cold and hot items, but all of it was fresh and presented very nicely. This is a great, affordable place to stay in beautiful Carmel-by-the Sea. We look forward to visiting again.

Clean, comfortable stay in the heart of Carmel, at a relatively affordable price. We stayed in a room with a balcony, with great views of the ocean. Very quiet and peaceful. Highly recommended for your basic comfortable stay (and you can't find any romantic cottage getaways within your budget).

Hotel located in a prime location. One block from major shops and restaurants. Amazing view . Overall very nice. Breakfast was average and bed not so comfortable. Room was spacious with nice balcony. Considering you are in the heart of Carmel I guess we got our money's worth.

great stay with excellent, quiet views! Helpful staff. Walking distance to all sites in Carmel. Nearby market. Pebble beach. Excellent location for a stay of more than 3-4 nights. Top floor, ocean view.

A pleasant change after a disappointing hotel in San Francisco.. Big room with fireplace..helpful check in staff,. Loved the flowers everywhere. Self service breakfast is included in the price.
Wi fi included. Didn't have any problems with this.

This is an average place in the heart of lovely Carmel. The room and bathroom are clean which is important to me so that's why I didn't care so much about the place being quite old and worn out.

The breakfast sucks - it's your typical American breakfast with toast, butter, too sweet yoghurt, muffins, danish and waffles. Luckily they at least had some fruit. I want fresh stuff, cheese, variety of fruit, natural un-sweetened yoghurt. Breakfast is also bad for tea drinkers since tea water tasted like coffee.

But anyways, it was a good location and the price was ok.
