“Great location steps away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

A terrific location steps from the central street of Carmel by the sea shopping and dining activity.
Residentially quiet except for the resident seagull,
After all, it's his environment so get over it!
Rooms are small, could be perhaps more airily decorated in pastel colors to give it a sense of greater space. Nice little complimentary breakfast arrangement (hint...take it upstairs on the sun deck) but the plethora of pastry emporiums two blocks away as you stroll past wonderful art galleries is tempting.
Be advised that air conditioning may not be in situ, so fans are helpful but rather than that, take a room on the second floor and take advantage of the window breeze off the sea. Like all things, pluses and minuses, this is a motor lodge and second floor access is by a flight of steps so a small schlepp is to be expected. Tiny pool but no one's there because everyone and their dog is at the beach so near.

Stayed June 2014, traveled with friends

We stayed here on our first leg going down the coast. The location of the hotel is great! 2 blocks away from Ocean ave, so everything is very close. Our room was very, clean, quiet, and it looks like it has been updated. We didn't use the provided breakfast except for a cup of coffee, so we can't really provide any info there. I would stay here again

We stayed here as tourists from Australia because our friends had stayed here previously. Location is very good 3 mins from the centre of carmel. We had a king room, it was a good size, bed was good, TV and amenities all good, including a decent fridge. The one thing I found not pleasing is that there is only paper or plastic cups, not a glass anywhere, had to go to the general store and buy one to have a glass of wine but I guess that's a personal thing. Breakfast is ok, typical of this type of place but good coffee and enough to give you a start to the day. If you want a serious breakfast there are many lovely places in the town. On site parking at no charge is a bonus. For the prices in Carmel, I would recommend this as a good stable place to stay. There are more glamorous for sure, just a lot more money.

The location of the hotel was wonderful, so close to everyting. The room was very clean, although since we got in so late and the hotel was booked solid, we got the handicapped room, so there was no bathtub, so the shower would make the whole bathroom wet, that was our only complaint. I did leave my i-phone charger in the room, plugged into the wall and that was not found (????) which I question very much, other than that, I would definitely recommend this hotel.

The location was wonderful and the customer service was exceptional. We locked our room keys in our room twice and the lovey gentleman at the front desk always new keys ready for us and never made us feel bad for our mistake. The rooms were clean and modern. We had a wonderful experience.

Although we are not comfortable with paying the amount we paid,to stay there...We do have this to say...The manager was still in training...and did a great job,at checking us in.He was courteous,as well as friendly.We had a smooth check in.The room was clean,and well appointed.We had every thing we needed,to make us comfortable.The continental breakfast,did the trick,as far as having the basics,for a ''quickie'' breakfast,goes.We liked the waffle,that was offered.The food area,was kept clean,as well as well stocked.

Room Tip: You may want to ''ask'' for an upstairs room.When you have other guests above you...
