“Quaint with beautiful gardens.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2011

The exterior is very unique and beautiful flowers everywhere. The room was small, but adequate. We could not figure out how to get the fireplace going if we had wanted to. Older bathroom, but clean. Has small flat screen TV and WiFi. Walkable to downtown and restaurants, but a bit far from the beach. We would stay there again. Continental breakfast was light, but enough for us.

Room Tip: Go on the website and view the rooms for yourself.

Stayed here for a spontaneous weekend. Luckily they were able to accommodate us. Our room was small but well equipped, with comfy bed, flat screen TV, cable, mini fridge, and full bath with shower. The breakfast was typical continental style, but the best oranges we have EVER eaten! The location was very convenient, rooms were clean, and staff was nice. Our room was in the courtyard, so very quiet. We didn't bring our dogs this time, but will probably try next time we're down here.

My husband & I stayed in the Monte Verde room for 2 nights on a Friday & Saturday. I don't know if it was just because it was a weekend or what, but the pub across the street was so loud & noisy both nights until around 1:00 a.m. There was little sleep to be had! We complained after the first night and the desk attendant seemed surprised that the neighbors hadn't called the police, saying that they usually do. Obviously, this is a reoccurring problem! There was even a fight going on between and a man & woman with vulgar language included! Not what I expect from Carmel. Perhaps if you stay in a room more "inside" from the street, it will be better. The room was small, the carpet needed cleaning, but otherwise okay.

We found a hidden gem in Carmel. Ambience of entire facility was perfect for celebrating our 35th Anniversary from the courtyard to rooms and comfortable beds to great continental breakfast set up. Great location and the staff was very responsive to meet your every need. Would definitely stay again if ever going back to Carmel.

Room Tip: Request the courtyard rooms.

A lovely small hotel within walking distance of the beach and all the shops. Nice sized room with a fireplace that easily heated the room. Wish we could have stayed longer than just one night. Small bathroom though.

Unexpectedly charming and pretty, older place nestled among the shrubs and flowers. Immaculate. Each room with a small gas fireplace connected to thermostat. Our room was a internet special for 75.00 and was very small but nice. Most are much larger. The staff was as friendly and as helpful as I've ever found.

The continental bkfst is set in a small dining room with individual tables set. It encourages conversation with other guests and has the atmosphere of a B&B. Terrific staff! Romantic.
