This is our second visit to The Carmel Mission Inn. I must say, the outside does look unprepossessing as you drive down the road towards it. This is probably thrown into relief if you have already been to Carmel, which is very pretty.
Fear not! Inside, this motel is much nicer. The rooms were clean, comfortable and well-appointed. Our bathroom was much less nice than the one our companions had, however, and less nice than the one we had on our last stay. We missed the walk-in shower and the elderly bath tub wasn't particularly nice. Could do with updating. The rest of the room was fine. We had a flat tv, safe, fridge.
The hotel serves a complimentary breakfast each morning, which was good. There were hot choices: scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, French toast, oatmeal. Cold foods were: fresh fruits, yoghurts, granola, muffins, cakes. Coffee and tea were available. The dining room was nice and the service was good. We arrived at 9 ish and had a short wait for a table.
The pool area was cleaned daily,but by the late afternoon there was some litter, including a couple of bloodstained blister plasters left by the hot tub (some people are animals!)
There is also a fitness room.
The hotel has some nice seating outside with fire pits. Unfortunately, it was too cool in the evenings to use this.
Overall, a good experience.
