These days of watching our money closely we like to get out and still get bargains, we were surprsied to get a great deal in Carmel at this place for $89 when we just walked in off the street. The way were greeted so happily and warmly by the lady at the front desk was totally unexpected and welcome considering we'd been travellers for hours on the road. "Diane" told us to unpack and come down for wine hour, and when we did she was a busy bee running around doing stuff but took time to share local stories, from this area for a long time she was a gold mine of fun factoids! She also made a point to tell us Carmel is for romance, so we switched gears, had some fun suggestions from her what to do, what to see, like the sunset! The parking situation not all that good, but from what I heard wasn't just this inn, that is a problem for everyone in this tiny town; the room was very cozy and clean, smelled a bit too much like bleach for us, but we aired it out; admittedly little things not perfect, like half a roll of used toilet paper on the spinner? and no other roll of toilet paper? Went to front desk, but wasn't able to find any, she kept apologizing, went into employee's bathroom and gave us their roll, whcih showed to us they hired responsible, caring staff. Ask Diane to tell the story of Frank Sinatra, why he was never allowed back to Pebble Beach in the 1950's after a memorable AT&T visit! As she said, "it's a hoot!", all that makes up for the little annoying problems we as tired travellers face. We look forward to going back again.
