Laguna Hills, California6 contributions1 helpful vote
I thought i was booking a highly rated quaint Hotel. What i got was is a revamped Holiday Inn at an overpriced $400+ a night price. I thought I was booking a nice King size room what i got was the last room on the first floor with loud neighbors from the adjacent building which is too close, people making noise walking in the room above and a dingey lit room.... Parking was a challenge and overall I am very disappointed to say the least....

Hello 767greggs, While most of our guests love our property’s boutique, Asian-inspired motif, it’s clear that aspects of that ambiance didn’t resonate with you which we’re sorry to hear. To the noise that seeped into your room from a separate building, please accept our apologies. Know that, pending availability, we’re always happy to relocate guests that have concerns with their accommodations, so please let us know how best we can manage your preferences during your next visit. Until your return… Take care!

Excellent location in a quiet area, just a few minutes away from the main strip, 10 minutes walk to the beach, 5 minutes walk the closest park (if you are traveling with a dog). I think I found my go to hotel in Carmel!

This is such a lovely property, set back a bit from the "hustle" of Carmel-by-the-Sea but still accessible to its many wonderful restaurants, galleries, and the beach. The zen-inspired touches are wonderful and made for a peaceful stay. Just a couple issues: this is not handicapped accessible (no elevator or ramp) so if you want one of the best rooms on the 2nd floor, be prepared to lug your suitcase up by yourself. There was no bell person either. Also, if I hadn't been so blissed out, I probably wouldn't have felt absolutely secure in my room as a single woman - there was no dead bolt on the door. But I will be back! I'll just pack lighter next time and maybe will bring my dog. :)

We're thrilled to hear we contributed to your awesome time in beautiful Carmel! It's great to hear you were able to enjoy all the many fun things our area has to offer. Thank you for shouting out our location and zen decor! To your note about safety, we do have deadbolts on all of our guest room doors. (You have to lift the handle up which engages the deadbolt.) So sorry this wasn't clear! Our staff would be happy to show you when you return. Can't wait to see you again! Safe travels!

Fun property in a great location with friendly staff. Shopping and dining in Carmel was all within a short walk. We spent most of our time exploring the area, but while in our room we enjoyed the fun robes provided. Only negative was that the guests above us stomped around all hours of the night. Not sure what was going on there, but if your looking for restful sleep you may want to ask for a top floor room.
