Carmel California usually a destination spot for visitors to California, or for folks like my wife and myself who live in CA and like to extend a trip with a special day or two sharing wonderfully eclectic variety of food available here, art galleries offering a wide spectrum of local, California and International artists, and if you are planning to see the sunset where Ocean Ave meets the beach (yes you can bring some wine) The Green Lantern is a perfect spot to stay.
It is one block from the main street, Ocean Avenue. Turn left and head to the beach or turn right and explore.
Room have been redone are clean, airy and light with a fresh ambiance we both enjoyed. We stayed in The Laurel and as described :"Cozy retreat with private stairway leading to this sunny dormered room", it reminded us of an English B&B. Sitting and enjoying the partial ocean view as we ate our crackers and cheese (visit The Cheese Shop at Carmel plaza-pricey but wonderful) and drank an award winning Sangiovese we picked up at Ranchito Canyon Vineyard in San Miguel outside of Paso Robles (this small production - 1200 cases - boutique producer of old vine wines worth the small side trip if you are going south on the 101 - contact Bill and Teresa Hinrichs for some wonderful tasting).
The Green Lantern was well priced with friendly personnel, easy self parking, a buffet breakfast and wine tasting in the evening and great location.This was not our first visit, nor will it be the last.
