We drove into Carmel thinking we'd have to pay a lot of money to stay in one of California's exclusive areas. Wrong - Lobos Lodge was very reasonable and represented excellent value for money. Charming lady booked us in. It was nice that she was so proud of the establishment she worked for. Our room was on the ground floor facing the road - very spacious and comfortable. Exceptional housekeeping. Nicely decorated. Fire was a treat. Everything worked perfectly for us at this stop. Short walk to the beach - it is stunning. We saw seals riding the waves at 7.30am - marvellous. We walked to a local coffee shop in the Mall (lower floor) right at the top of the high street for our breakfast. Friendly locals and great coffee.
