We arrived in Carmel without booking ahead, found this hotel, looked around and took a room for the night. Check in was hassle free, the staff were very friendly and helpful and we found it very easy to just settle in and chillax. Parking is free.
Rooms are a good size and very comfortable, bed is excellent, the space felt luxurious, bathroom could do with an update but it's perfectly acceptable.
Indoors the common areas are homely and immediately put you at ease.
The pool is lovely, it gets the sun and a great little spot to while away the afternoon.
It's a short walk up the town (2 blocks over and up) and the beach is the other direction, no street lighting on the way back was a surprise for me.
Carmel's not a cheap place to stay however I wholeheartedly recommend this hotel.
