Roomy for family of 5! Very quaint, beds are awesome comfy, two bathrooms and just enough kitchen to keep kids happy at breakfast and snack time at night. Price is right considering we would have needed two rooms for us in a hotel. Walking distance to anywhere in Carmel. If you need room for 5 this is awesome. Pictures on website are exactly what you get. Refreshing.

We spent two nights here on a Living Social deal, and were really happy with our experience. When you reserve rooms through a discount broker you don't know your room number until the day you arrive, but we really lucked out with ##48 the "St. Anne" upstairs room, complete with king sized bed, flat-screen TV, and large jacuzzi tub.

Check-in was quick and easy. Like other Yelpers mentioned, the parking spaces are a bit tight, but the location was such that we rarely moved our car. We were within walking distance of many great restaurants and shops, and only drove to go to Point Lobos, which is only 5 miles away and the highlight of our trip.

The St. Anne room is super-spacious. The king sized bed was comfortable, and as the staff pointed out, you can watch the TV from the bed, the easy chairs, or the jacuzzi!

Included in the room rate was a bottle of wine from a local winery, 2 wine-glasses and a couple of Ghirardelli chocolate squares, which were a nice, welcoming touch.

We loved the gas-burning fireplace which made the room quite warm and cosy. The jacuzzi tub was perfect for relaxing after a long day.

The only complaints we had during our stay were 1) almost no hot water the first morning. I think there may have been too many people showering at the same time right before breakfast. I let the front desk know and they said they would look into it, although it was fine the second morning. and 2) loud popping noises (which woke us up) that came from the fireplace a couple of times during each night We mentioned it at the desk when we left, and they said they would have it checked out.

All of the different people who worked at the desk were very friendly and helpful, and quite responsive when we brought up our two concerns. They are a wealth of information for local restaurant recommendations and they have quite a few brochures in the office for local businesses, some of them with discounts included.

Breakfast is continental - juice, tea/coffee, bagels, sweet breads/muffins and fresh apples/orange slices. For those looking for a big hot breakfast, there are good places nearby. We appreciated having a light breakfast so that we could save our appetites for the big meals we planned for later in the day. One morning we brought a tray to our room, the other morning we found space in their small reception room.

We managed to go to both port/sherry hours and found it a great opportunity to chat with the other guests, as well as the Briarwood staff, to hear their recommendations for restaurants, shops, and tours.

The Wi-fi worked perfectly and was included in the price. We found our room to be a wonderful respite and great place to relax during our stay. The location can't be beat! We would definitely love to return.

Stayed in a beautiful roomy suite with garden view. The maids cleaned room prompt ly in morning. The front desk clerk, Carol, made an original personalized welcome card to make us feel extra special. We will plan to stay here again.

Great Location, Spotless, Friendly Staff, Good Vibes! If you are looking for a place to stay in Carmel....It's difficult to improve on this "Friendly Inn"...We truly enjoyed the ability to walk, with ease, to many wonderful Carmel locations. Our rooms were very clean and the over-all ambience was unmistakable! The Bed was very comfortable and the bathroom facilities were clean and efficient with an outstanding shower! No dissatisfaction here!! A Great Experience and something we would do again......for sure!

Room Tip: Front units are quiet! Good Bed! Nice Shower!
