A friend and I just stayed here for 5 nights August 23-27th - and were really pleasantly surprised. The price was very reasonable, the staff were really helpful - really nice, the room we had - on the ground floor was clean and comfortable and the decor was excellent. We arrived early so this room was offered us so we agreed - it was fine - very quiet. The pool was fine and the hot tub too. Also live music. You can walk into Carmel in about 20 minutes - we did not have a car so used local buses which were across the road near Starbucks.
The buses are hourly - the 24 goes to Monterey and Carmel. You can also get the 24 to Carmel valley and do some wine tasting. We got the number 22 to Big Sur - which was just amazing. We got the first bus in the morning and the last one back and were on the bus each way for about an hour - scenery just stunning and the bus driver stopped for us to take pics. We went to Nepente restaurant/shop/cafe - not to be missed. The hotel also offers a happy hour which we went to once - only had one drink but the food - was good a selection of hot and cold which was complimentary and well worth a try once - excellent value. This is a really good base and also very handy for both Carmel and Monterey. I would stay there again and highly recommend.
