We stayed in La Playa Carmel for a girls weekend. The hotel is located a few blocks from the beach and a few blocks in the other direction from the shopping area. As soon as we parked outside the service was great!
You should know that the hotel is older with no elevators. Let the bellmen take your things to your room.
The courtyard is beautiful and reminded me of an Italian courtyard I visited on one of my other travels.
I saw some of the other reviews about the rooms and the price. We were lucky enough to find a deal on the rate and we had a second floor room. It was on the smaller side but was updated and clean. Perfect for us as we spent most of our time doing the wine walk, exploring other wineries and walking the beach. Notice a theme there?
The breakfast was great. Not a menu breakfast but enough to get the day started. They seemed a little short staffed but no one minded when I got behind the waffle maker and made my own waffle.
I would go back to this hotel again. It reminds me of most European hotels. Quiet, relaxing and quaint.
