I'm flying in to visit my daughter in SF and we are taking a one day/night adventure to the area. Not sure which is more quaint and/or beautiful - Carmel or Monterey? I know they are very close together, but she doesn't care, so it's up to me. I do know she would like to see Big Sur as well. Can you recommend a nice hotel for us as well? Also...in all honesty, I have to admit being a bit nervous about hotels and bedbugs after seeing a program aired on TV.
Thanks for suggestions....appreciate any help and/or advice. We plan on coming mid May.
