This was an anniversary trip and we wanted a centrally located hotel to explore Carmel.
Great location - right in the middle of many shops, art galleries, and restaurants. 10 min walk to the beach/ocean. Can quickly get to main roads by car too.
Parking during busy season is bit tough, as there are not enough spots for every guest, but there is street parking too.
Rooms are small, but comfortable and clean. Loved the vintage feel to the decor. No A/C but when we went in May it wasn't that hot. There are windows and ceiling fan.
Free breakfast buffet at the restaurant next door -- Il Fornaio. They had breads, pastries, cereal, eggs/bacon/potatoes, coffee, juice, etc. You have to ask for a voucher. Not available on the weekends though...
Service was great, check in/check out was easy and efficient, we asked for a few extra bottles of water for a day hike, and they were brought up quickly.More
