“Mid century decor, clean, and comfortable, use promo code”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

The mid century décor is kind of cool. It sort of reminds me of comfortable hotels in Palm Springs or Hawaii. Anyway, this is a good hotel. The hot buffet breakfast is outstanding. Use promo code "ts" if booking on the hotel website or directly by phone. Use a booking site and breakfast will cost you $12/person when you check in or $17 if you just show up in the dining room. Put on your robe and take advantage of their outstanding spa. The hotel is pet friendly and has plenty of good walking areas.

My only regret with booking this hotel is that we had only booked one night. As one of many stops on a Californian road trip it stood out ahead of the rest for its design, decor, comfort and its amazing breakfast. Carmel, the beach and the Mission are all close by.

Lobby staff was so so - have seen better service - smiling a little bit more won't hurt.
The room was ok with a little balcony and even if it seemed a little old, the decor was nice. A bathrobe was missing and even if I've called the staff to bring me one, no one did.

Stayed here end of July as part of honeymoon trip.
Beautiful clean little hotel with good onsite facilities although might be worth asking when quieter time for breakfast is because it can get busy and you might have to wait for a table. This does not however detract from the service you receive. I'm not sure what type of room we had (number 434) but it was 4th floor and had an amazing huge corner balcony complete with sunloungers! 5 minute drive into Carmel town & beach.

A really good hotel, again check in and reception fast and efficient. The allocated room was clean and well cared for and the only down side was the view over the carpark. Not a huge problem.

The room was comfortable and had a decent balcony on which to sit and chill. There was no noise from adjoining rooms or from the pool despite there being a pool party in full swing. The shopping mall across the road was helpful to stock up on goods for the road trip. We did not eat in the hotel in the evening but did have breakfast. This was reasonable and set us up for the day - good supply of coffee and cooked food. The staff were pleasant and friendly.
Would use it again and would recommend.

We arrived in the afternoon and were glad to see that we could check in early. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were however disappointed with our room. The beds were uncomfortable and made for a difficult nights sleep. Also, the rooms décor was very dated and ill looking. Apart from this, we were very impressed with the breakfast buffet. The food is great and you're bound to find something you like. The location of the hotel is good and close to town. Overall, an okay stay.

Lovely room, nice pool and great location. Lobby staff could be more accommodating though. Mix up at check in over room rate. Made to feel that it was "our problem so deal with it"! Mix up over local added tax. Didn't spoil our stay though.
