I am obsessed with this website and such a hotel snob so I really did my research about this property! We didn't want to stay in a B&B Downtown (which are nice but I wanted ocean view). We couldn't have been more pleased with this place. Very small, 38 rooms, all of which are great. They have all been redone and are adorable/comfortable and almost all have awesome views of the ocean/cliffs. Beds were so comfy and they have a large roomy bathroom. Champagne and chocolate upon arrival and great continental breakfast included. The hotel is right above Hyatt Highlands Inn which does have 2 restaurants so you could walk there if needed. Wine and Cheese reception was a nice touch!
The staff was great and helpful if you need area info.
We LOVED carmel! It was our first time and it was so quaint and great. If you want a great dinner/lunch with a view, go to Rocky Point Restaurant which is south 10 miles on Hwy 1. AWESOME view from almost every table. You MUST drive south on Hwy 1 to see Big Sur. It was the most beautiful vista drive I have ever seen. LOVED IT!
I would stay here again and can't wait to go back!!!
