A great location in Carmel. 3 blocks to the beautiful Pacific Ocean, and about 4 to the central retail district. Very charming hotel, with a great daily buffet breakfast. Friendly employees in all areas of the hotel. Beautiful gardens, and outside patio makes it great for enjoying the beautiful weather while enjoying a beverage and/or meal.
There is no elevator in the hotel so I would recommend trying to get a room on the first floor. We were on the third floor, and after waiting 20 minutes for the bellman to arrive to start his shift we decided to tote our luggage down the various flights of stairs in order to ensure we made our scheduled departure out of San Jose.
We would definitely go back to LaPlaya.
