There are a few things that bother me about some hotels and this one had a few. First, it is in need of a serious update. the room was clean, but that sort of gets negated by dingy, old and beat up furniture and fixtures. The front desk area looked updated but not the rooms. Also, I have some difficulty due to back and hip pain. So, the lack of an elevator to the second floor is a problem for me. When making a reservation, I requested a ground floor. But upon arrival it became a problem. The clerk did a good job of managing to get a ground floor room for me which I appreciated. Strange, they have handicapped parking, but no other considerations for it.
Another thing was there was no continental breakfast available. Not a big deal but there was little knowledge by the desk person as to where a decent breakfast was served. We discovered there was a place in walking distance and that should have been known.
At Carmel prices, this was not a good value for the money
