I never want to leave a bad review but Carmel Inn and Suites is definitely in need of a facelift. Maybe we got the only un-remodeled room but having stayed several times in Carmel we were so disappointed in the accommodations at this site. The baseboards were badly scuffed and dirty. Closet light did not work and had hole in the ceiling where another light fixture may have been. Bed linens were so thin you could see thru them and pillows felt like solid blocks of foam rubber. Only seating in the room - two white wicker chairs circa 1970. Housekeeping left a ‘fresh’ shower mat that was so frayed and ragged it should only be used as a dog washing towel! Bathroom window looked directly out into parking lot with 1/2 curtain on the upper non-frosted glass; the lower window was frosted but had no window cover. Ceiling in shower had holes in sheetrock. None of these comments are directed at housekeeping and our room was always serviced before lunch. But management needs to step up and refurbish this property.

I called to make a reservation at this hotel for the PGA Pro/Am event since I was not able to make a reservation online after putting all my payment info on their system. The front desk person said there must have been a system issue. I was told a room was available if I provided my credit card info again. I did so and asked that I receive email confirmation of my booking. This is an extremely busy week and I wanted to make sure everything was in order. I waited on the phone for about 5 mins with the front desk person on the line but the email confirmation never came. She said it might take about 10 mins so we hung up. I never received any confirmation of my reservation! After attempting to call the property and getting no answer, I then checked my credit card statement to see if there was any hold placed for the reservation. Nothing. Therefore, I booked another hotel, received confirmation within minutes and was on my way. Last night I received a voicemail from the hotel at 10 pm. I called them back first thing in the morning to let them know I never received confirmation of my reservation and stayed somewhere else. The front desk person was very abrupt in saying that it is too bad for me and my card had been charged. She said she would contact accounting and they might get back to me next week. I called back again and she was very dismissive about any possible solution. I am very disappointed in how this went down. After reading through the other reviews I’m not that surprised. There are plenty of other nice properties in the area that are neat, clean, updated and professional. This is not one of them.

Make sure you book through a website, because I was left disappointed by phoning up directly. Their own website had error 404 when trying to use it, and it is still broken as of today. I asked for a one of the larger King bed suites for two nights at the rate advertised on their own website, which appeared to be a better for deal going to them directly. However the staff failed to inform me that the rate went up significantly for the next day. When I arrived at the hotel/motel I found that i had been given a smaller standard room for the higher rate, so I was not happy. The Staff told me the code they had used was for a standard room, not what I had asked for, and they were sorry for the mistake. They would not move me on request to the room that I wanted. - At 2 a.m. there was what sounded like an earth quake, but in fact it was people moving into the room above us. It seems that the floors are worse than paper thin and actually amplify the noise. We heard every step and conversation they had, including every passionate encounter, which would have been funny If we had not been so tired. The pool was closed and looked old and in need of repair, with the gate ripped off at an odd angle. There were aircon units in the walkways left there as obvious work being done. On the positive side, the bed was comfy, and the decor was okay. We TV worked so we turned it up to let the guys above us know we could hear them. Room 1 (our room) had a broken sink plug and no draft excluder under the entrance door. The 1 inch gap between the door and the floor let quite a bit of cold air in, so we had to crank the heating up. Breakfast was left outside our door on the first day, - pots of cereal, bananas and a cinnamon roll. - passable (no breakfast the second day) The location was good. Not too far from the center of Carmel.

This is a very nice location with walking distance to town, dining, shopping. Our room was very nice with a large living area. The hotel has a very limited parking. Our room was clean but the breakfast is very limited.

I found the room comfortable and clean. Right across the street from the Forge in the Forest restaurant, which is a plus. Parking is minimal. Eat breakfast somewhere else. The English Muffins and bagels were so stale and hard, you could have used them as weapons. The apple and orange juice in the cannisters was rancid. Orange juice was very dark in color and had a nasty taste. The milk for the cereal was warm, not iced. I found the woman at the front desk to be abrupt and a bit condescending. Given all of the other choices in town, I probably wouldn't stay here again.
