“Nice Small Inn”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Very nice small inn . Conveniently located in downtown Carmel. Park your car and leave it. Very helpful desk with suggestions for dinner and lunch places in Carmel. Breakfast basket delivered to room every morning with fruit,yogurt and pastries. Our room #5 was large with king bed on the end upstairs with limited view of ocean. Very clean. Would stay again and with Groupon deal was a good value

Room Tip: #5 upstairs. Large room with king bed

Our little room was on the ground floor of the Casa de Carmel and was what you would expect from a nice motel (not really a hotel) - small but clean, the sheets even had the mild smell of bleach. If you're in Carmel, you pay more for the basics. This place reminded me of that.

The receptionist was incredibly nice. She walked us to our room across the street (check in is at the Monte Verde Inn) even though it was pouring rain. There was a complimentary decanter of sherry in the room which was a nice touch. And the breakfast basket is left at your door first thing in the morning (juice, yogurt, rolls, croissants and packets of jelly). The room has a coffee maker with packets of coffee.

What I didn't like was the noise. The walls seem to be paper-thin and I don't know WHAT was going on outside, but the noise level was crazy. It was okay at night but starting at dawn, it was so loud that my husband and I couldn't do anything but laugh. There was no way we could sleep through it.

Warning: the tap water comes out scalding hot instead of warm. They need to fix that before someone gets badly burned.

My wife and I spent our Thanksgiving holiday here with our dog. From the time that I called to check on availability the Inn manager, Leora Sanchez, was extremely helpful and pleasant to work with. She helped us choose between this property and their sister property located across the street. Both are small Inn's with unique character.

Our room was very nice and comfortable. The hotel allows dogs, but you wouldn't know it as they do a very good job of cleaning and keeping the room in great condition. We enjoyed the room, and with at dutch door, we could open the top part for a nice breeze, and keep our dog contained in the room. They allow guests of the Casa de Carmel to use the patio of the Monte Verde Inn, so if you have an upstairs room, you have a nice place to sit outside and relax.

The location of the hotel is perfect, it's right off of the main street (Ocean), at the southern end of the shopping area, and a very close walk down to the main beach. They serve a light breakfast, pastry, yogurt, fruit and juice for breakfast. It was almost like they knew when we were awake as we never had to wait for them to place the tray by our door, even though we had a different schedule each of the two mornings.

Great location, nice rooms, wonderful staff, all around an fantastic visit.

Room Tip: As for a downstairs room so you get a small table and two chairs to sit on.

Arrived late at night but this place is easy to find. Greeted by a really helpful receptionist who gave me a lovely room-very clean and comfortable with a modern bathroom. Good continental breakfast. The only slight downside is noise from the road but that's just during the day; it was very peaceful through the night.

Quaint,small B&B,on two properties across from each other. Park and walk to stores and all restaurants in downtown Camel,a small village. Some street traffic can be heard from room,since Inn is located on a downtown side street. Very personable ,informative Innkeeper,who clearly loves her job. Rooms exactly as pictured on site,immaculate and homey.

Stayed for one night. The place is close to the beach and somewhat in the middle of everything. Had parking, although limited. Also had free WIFI. Checked in and the guy was very nice. The room I got was upstairs and was OK. Not spacious but not small either. Had small fridge and there were 2 bottles of water.

The main complain was noise. The wall soundproofing was bad. I could hear conversations from neighbors, even with the TV (LCD) on high volume. And it got quite noisy early in the morning (neighbors, maintenance crews).

Didn't try the breakfast basket. It had 2 oranges, some pastries, 2 yogurts, and one bottle of grape juice.

I stayed at this property for a two day getaway because of its closeness to Carmel Beach and for the (limited) parking provided. I was in a spacious upstairs corner room, however, was disappointed that the property was more like a motel. The room did not smell fresh despite my keeping the windows open all day and night. I suspect that pets may have previously been there. The furnishings were worn and tired-looking. I had a difficult time sleeping as the room did not feel or smell clean.

Although the morning breakfast basket delivery was a nice touch, the roll had no taste and the fruit was unripe. I could not find one quality item worth eating.

My two nights were prepaid (at a price worthy of a nice B&B but not here), otherwise I would have checked out after the first night. My stay was a disappointment as I ended up spending as much time as possible at the beach just to avoid going back to the room.

Sorry for this late review but I just joined TripAdvisor. I hope the room has been renovated since my stay, but I still would not go back.
