We were pleased with everything, just wish they had a restaurant. HOWEVER, the complimentary breakfast buffet (everyday) is excellent and adds custom-cooked eggs, etc. on weekends.
This property is recently renovated. We did not stay here in the past, so have no point of comparison. We did overhear someone saying that they come every year in October; they love the hotel.
The setting is beautiful, very close to the water/beach.
Our room was perfect, ample size, with a view over the pool and we also could see the water. The only complaint about our room is that there is very little counter space in the bathroom.
The staff were all terrific. We needed something fixed in the room and it was handled immediately.
The only parking is on the street. We opted not to use our car at all and just left it. The hotel is located within easy walking distance of all of Carmel, so that was not a problem. We enjoyed walking everywhere we went.
