We stayed in a 3 bedroom cottage in mid-October. The difficulty of making the reservation should have been a warning to us, but we still booked our room...and received a confirmation with our price. When we arrived, the rate was higher than was given on our confirmation, which I did not readily available. The cottage itself was average, but fit...

The first thing I noticed when we walked in the room was the cluster of cobwebs in the corner. It went downhill from there. We found spiders (alive) and webs all throughout the room. When we called the front desk to ask for something to get rid of them, no one answered. We tried to watch tv but the cable...

Attended for 2 nights on a business trip in September. Rooms need a little updating, but a good value considering they also provide wine tasting and snacks in the evening and a continental breakfast in the morning. No sign of the owner at breakfast when I was there.

and to make matters worse, the front office said WOW, that is probably smelly, but it is all we have. Fabreeze was how they answered the problem. Property overall is in very bad shape, poverty level.Breakfast was Cosco Junk.

I don't know why there are so many bad reviews. Honestly they almost scared us away from staying here. But we bit the bullet and stayed here on a weekend getaway. It turned out to be very nice, I think many other reviewers expect way too much. The location is an out-of-the-way small town (appropriately called Carmel Valley Village) about...

We thought we would eat at the hotel on our first night and chose this restaurant. The choice on the menu was a little narrow and I chose the seafood catch of the day which was sea bass for my main course. My starter of a tomato salad was good but my wife's soup was nothing like a bisque which...

I booked for three nights. I had a flight canceled and TELEPHONED to the Carmel Valley Lodge to say I was NOT a 'no show' and please to not rebook my room. No one answers the phone. Only an answering machine. I arrived just at midnight. The parking lot was not lighted at all. Just black. By the the light...

This review is more for the accommodations. This place could be really nice if they tried to clean up the rooms and grounds. Where do I even start. The first room we checked into was one of the "cottages". Walking in you could tell this place needed a really good cleaning. The couch looked like is was covered in dust...

Charged months ahead of time, but let the ball drop with the Soberanes fires. The air quality was hazardous, parks closed, helicopters constant. But they wouldn't even let you off the hook for 1 nite.
