This small hotel is a few steps away from the beautiful Carmel beach and within walking distance to the heart of the town. It has all the charm of an old country house with its nice living room with great windows and a working fire....More

We did a quick stay after leaving Pebble . Close walk to beach. Room was neat and clean. About a 20 Mom walk to Carmel shopping . Plenty of parking for your car or rental. We opened the windows and could hear the ocean.

We saw several rooms when we arrived and they all had a private bathroom. We chose room 17 because it was in a quiet corner on the first floor. At night, with the windows cracked, you can hear the ocean in the room!
