Most aspects of this hotel are very good. Great service, clean quality rooms and helpful friendly staff. The location is really best for passing through as it is on a main road but there is remartkably little traffic noise in the rooms.
When we arrived in the evening you could have very good hot and cold snacks in the bar if you bought a drink there. For the price of a very generous drink you could virtually dine!
The let down is that in the winter, if the weather is cold, and it can get cold in Carmel, the structure is inadequately designed to cope with the cold. The heating in the rooms needs to run all the time and at night this is a little noisy. The windows are single glazed which comes as a shock to Europeans. The hotel is a collection of blocks and you have to go outside to the dining and breakfast facilities. We froze on the long march!
The only other adverse comment is that the pillows are very high and firm and the only choice is to use them or discard them. It doesn't make for a restful night if you prefer a flatter pillow.
Over all a great place to stay on a road trip in the summer and that I would recommend. In the winter you need to pack your thermal underwear, and that's just for walking down the hotel corridors!
