We stayed here only one night on our drive back from San Francisco. On our drive up, we also spent a night in Carmel, but at a different inn.
Now this place is not bad, but there are places that are better for the same price. It felt cold and sterile and lacked the warmth and charm of so many other inns that are all over Carmel.
When I booked the room, I chose the inn because they were dog friendly. I was not sure if we were going to bring our dog or not, but just in case, I wanted to stay at a place that would allow him. As soon as we checked in, they handed us a paper to sign saying we did not have a dog with us. I thought that was very weird. Most dog friendly places simply ask if you are traveling with your pet, they didn't ask, just asked us to sign the paper.
Breakfast, was not appealing. We left it untouched in the cooler they left at our door.
There was nothing warm about the decor, the staff, the location, it was all very cold.
In addition to this, when I booked the room, they charged me for two nights and it took them a month to credit me in addition to me having to send them a copy of my billing statement like they didn't even believe they over charged me.
I would not stay here again.
