We stayed for one night in this B and B and paid over $200 for a room (wooden cabin) right on the street with no air conditioning and just about enough room for a bed. Even though we arrived an hour within the check in window the receptionist made us feel bad for being the last people to check in... More

Briarwood was Close to the action. It was walking distance to everything. Covered ( tiny) carport thank goodness we had a Honda civic. It was a Cozy room but worth it to be walking distance to everything. Very clean.

My husband and I were only one night at briarwood inn. Really big room, bathroom OK, everything clean, just a little bit old and the bathroom too. Very good location. No need car. Restaurants and shops at 1 minute walk. I found service not too enthusiastic and not vey talkative. Just Ok for the price we paid. Would not repeat... More

After a nice drive from SF we arrived in this little nice hotel in Carmel with a free parking Spot (hard to find there really) and nice people at the reception. Nothing really to complain about. Great restaurants around the corner.

This was just what we were looking for on our 39th anniversary trip to Carmel. The room we had was very adequate with a comfy queen bed, a sitting area, and a kitchenette. The bathroom was small but served its purpose. The innkeepers were very helpful and courteous. The continental breakfast was nothing fancy but certainly enough to get the... More

My wife got this deal on Living Social. We stayed there for 2 nights. Only positive is the location. The room was extremely old and dated. The end table for the bed was a small piece of plywood nailed to the wall. There was actually a fully functional VCR in the room- no DVD or CD player in the room.... More

We had one of the best and biggest rooms #49. We purchased it through Living Social for a mid-week two night stay. Good: 1. The room was generally comfortable after navigating the stairs to get in. The bathroom is small and the furnishings are very dated. But, the king bed was reasonably comfortable and that is important. The long matches... More

Cute cottage and friendly front office. Clean and cozy. Decor could be updated, but that's just being picky. Breakfast was simple with pastries and bagels (not of the homemade variety) with coffee and juice. Great location.

This hotel is a great choice in Carmel, just a few blocks from the central business district and many wonderful restaurants, wine tasting rooms and shops. We had a two bedroom unit with a full kitchen. It was nicely furnished, clean and quiet (a second story unit off of the street). Granted, we did not spend much time in the... More

We had a nice sized room at the Briarwood - the Bedford Suite. The room was quite large with nice paneling. But it was very dark in the room. The bathroom, however, was very small and it was impossible for two people to navigate the room. It would have been nicer if they could have taken some of space in... More
