We stayed here for 4 nights at the start of October. It was the final leg of our trip so we were looking for a few calm days and this was the perfect spot. When we arrived we were welcomed warmly and told we had an upgraded room. This is always a great start.
The room was on the first floor so we did have to cart all our stuff upstairs but it was worth it because it had a real log fire in the room! How wonderful. We were able to light it in the evening and fall asleep to the flickering firelight and it really did warm the room up too.
The overall look of the place is very individual. Some would call it twee but it didnt phase us and the facilities were just what we needed. We had spent the past two weeks living on hotel, restaurant and cafe food so to have a fridge, kettle, toaster and microwave it was heaven. We were able to eat simple food. The bathroom seemed a bit lacklustre on first appearance but do not let this deceive you, the shower is the best one out of all the hotels we stayed at. I even liked the complimentary toiletries.
Breakfast is a simple continental affair served in the tiny reception room but they are more than happy to give you a tray so you can take what you need to your room. On the day we checked out they even offered to wrap up some for us to take on our journey back to San Fran.
I would highly recommend this place. It is great value for money, great service and in a great location to explore Carmel on foot or by car.
