This was a great place to stay rooms where very clean had everything in you needed and a pool which was warm hot tub. Place was nice and clean staff was very helpful and the breakfast was really great. We will surely stay there again when we are in that area.

When we checked the pictures online the room looked clean and decent. When we got there room smelled so bad that I had to sleep in my car the first night. Carpet was really dirty. Breakfast was decent and choices are very limited. The hotel is old and needs a lot of updating. Staff members were extremely friendly and helpful.

I was in town for Pebble Beach and everything close to Carmel had been booked months in advance, this was the closest I could find that was not outrageous in price for that weekend. I was pleasantly surprised! The rooms were spacious and very clean. The bathroom looked like it had been recently renovated. The staff was nice. I would... More

Thank you for the review. I'm very sorry about the size of the bathroom. Those small showers are unique to our "Kitchenette" rooms and were more common in a bygone era. The kitchenettes are slated for a remodel in the near future. For guests who need more elbow room and the kitchen is less important we definitely recommend any of... More

This was a wedding trip for a family member. It was not easy reaching the hotel online as all the booking sites seem to jump in. The room was fine, bed not so great, but adequate. Virginia the daytime desk person is fantastic. Evening weekend gent is ok. Overall experience was fine. Bring your own breakfast - that is the... More

Thank you for your review! We are working to relocate our breakfast room as we've definitely out-grown the current facilities. We do also offer breakfast bags if you're planning to leave before breakfast opens or would just rather avoid the crowds! More

Room served its purpose, but light between beds was not plugged in and cord barely reached outlet and some electric plugs did not work. Attention to detail of of room was lacking as these items are frustrating but not enough to call the front office to have someone come deal with them.

Great hotel, Clean, comfortable, with good restaurants close by, Walking distance, Friendly staff and covered parking for motorcycles. Will stay here again when I'm in the area. Now Tripadvisor is telling me to add more characters. Still not enough.
