My family of three (includes 14 yr. old) arranged to stay in the suite with 3 full sized beds, as there were no other rooms to accommodate all of us available. Unfortunately we were unable to stay longer than one night in Carmel. The location does not get much better than this...walking distance to shops and restaurants and the beach if you are in fairly good shape. We arrived around 5 pm and were warmly greeted by M.J., who had our room key waiting for us. Quick, friendly check in process. The flowers and plants surrounding the property were beautiful and inviting. Our room was in the back building, with free parking right in front of the door. The room was equipped with a great brick fireplace, sitting area with coffee table, writing desk and a separate sleeping area with one full size bed. The bathroom has not been updated for sometime, but was clean and well- equipped and more than met our needs. (The only issue with the bathroom was that when I opened the window to vent the room, it looks onto a small narrow alleyway that held ladders and a toilet wrapped in green plastic! I believe I would ask my neighbor to move it or arrange some type of hedge to maintain a feeling of privacy and charm for Inn guests.)
The beds were comfy, with plenty of pillows and blankets. We loved the Keurig coffee maker and the room has a small microwave and fridge. We slept with the windows open and were comfy without an air conditioner. Not quite cold enough for us to use the fireplace, but the room was equipped with 3 logs just in case. Nice touch we would definitely use in cold weather.
Breakfast is complimentary and brought to your room between 7:30-8:00. We were given an order form at check-in and it was left at the door in a cooler bag with newspaper attached...nice touch!
We recommend this Inn to couples, families and anyone wanting a quiet stay within walking distance to Carmel shops and restaurants.
