“Lovely from the outside.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

The flowers and gardens give a very favourable first impression of this motel. From the outside a desirable motel. Unfortunately our room was a little tired inside. That said the room was clean with a good sized bed. Free wifi.
A good breakfast choice.
Friendly staff.

Room Tip: A 2 floor motel and i would have thought there was little to be chosed between each room.

Perfect location at the edge of Carmel, in walking distance of everything! Clean rooms, slightly dated and motel-style (the people above us clomped around a bit but that could be alleviated by staying on the top floor). Great value as we wanted two beds and got two twins (don't see that much!) which was perfectly adequate (and well-priced). Free included breakfast and parking right out front.

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper, choose the second floor.

The people were nice, but this is an extremely average place..location too far to walk to the town or beach and rooms not large or nice. just plain. The service though is quite good.
Other places, closer to town and beach were far nicer and spacious and even cheaper!

Positioned perfectly for a visit to carmel by the sea. This place is cheaper and therefor not the best hotel i've ever stayed in but that's what you get. Don't get me wrong, i loved it. I was right where i wanted to be, walking distance from the beach, shopping, and food. All for a little less than everywhere else. This place has everything you need and nothing you don't. Have fun and enjoy the area!

This is a very adequate hotel right at the beginning of the Carmel Village and at a bargin price. The rooms are very dated and the furniture is old, however, the place is very clean. The beds a very comfy and the linens excellent. This is a no frills place that wont set you back. The contentinal breakfast has quiche (so, so) nice slice fruits (mellons, pineapple and mango), all your bread products, blueberry muffins and waffles. There is also cereal, milk, juice and coffee. From upstairs you can see down the village and far off the ocean. This will definetly be the place we come for a bargin to see our daughter and her family. Free wifi too.

There are excellent prices to be had if you shop around and the $79 we ended up paying for this room was an absolute bargain.
Its central the rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, parking's free and it even included breakfast for us both.
Our only suggestion would be to avoid room 7 as it's very close to the stairs and you can hear other guests traipsing up and down

Not worth the price on a holiday weekend... Check your windows! One of ours didn't lock and the other didn't even CLOSE! Handle was broken so you could just pull on it to open from outside! Plus for smokers is a nice partially enclosed (see photo showing shade umbrella on this site) patio with chairs and ash trays across from the lobby. And it was clean and comfy, if dated. But did not feel safe. Reported the window on saturday, but on Sunday when we checked out, the desk had not yet called maintenance... Two stars for clean and comfy and for breakfast with hot food.
