If you love ocean views this is the place. We stayed one night in room 12 and then two nights in room 15 (even better) while in Carmel for a wedding. Beautiful views of the ocean and coastline from the large balcony outside the room and from the king bed inside the room. The bedding was luxurious. The staff were extremely friendly, efficient, and kind. Breakfast was more than the "Continental Breakfast" advertised including ham and delicious fritatas as well as fruit, cereal, pastries, etc. So, great if you are a visual or tactile person. Not so good if you are an audio person: you hear the cars on Pacific Coast Highway 1 below rather than the waves and sometimes you hear the folks in the next room. Point Lobos Park is very close and a great place for a walk by the ocean.
