The place is clean and overall pretty good for the price. Some rooms are in great need of updating--old grout, peeling paint, dated furnishings. The housekeeping is outstanding, and the front desk basically sound. There were some problems with the room--a nail in the flooring that sticks up--we tripped over it, tore a sock, etc. But the front desk said... More

Desk and chair. 2 comfortable chairs for reading -- we also used them to eat the delightful breakfast that was delivered to the door in the morning. Closet had 2 bathrobes and lots of hangers.

Nice hotel/motel close to main shopping area in Carmel. Breakfast delivered in a cool bag with the local newspaper is a nice touch. No safe in the rooms was a bit disappointing plus quite noisy from adjacent rooms. Friendly staff make this a good place to stay whilst visiting Carmel/Monterey.

The rooms are great and bathrooms even better. The beds were really comfy. It had free wifi and cable TV. They have a fire pit which is nice to sit around in the evening. The continental breakfast is OK and may not be to everyone's liking. We arrived early but the staff were very nice and asked if we could... More

What a beautiful location and picture perfect hotel. Great friendly check in and rooms already available even though we were early. Great directions and information to the local facilities. We were even able to use the pool at the local sister hotel which was a great treat. Rooms clean and spacious with a great range of TV channels. Unfortunately we... More

We stayed here just as the fires started in July. We were able to enjoy our one night for many reasons; the cleanliness of the room, the size of the room, the comfy bed, the helpful staff and the perfect on-the-go breakfast. We would definitely stay here again.

So excited after checking in & seeing how close we were to everything in town. Thursday spent the day touring galleries & dining. Our room was well appointed & on the first floor. Returning that evening after 10 pm exhausted and ready for a good night sleep. Awakened by a drunk bride screaming that she was getting married the next... More

Rooms were clean and comfortable. Reception staff were really friendly and helpful. The location was great for walking in to town. We were here a couple of days to visit Monterey, etc. The breakfast box was a bit poor; a voucher to spend closeby would be better. Nice to have tea/coffee available in reception. No reason not to stay here.
