The location of this hotel can't be beat. One block to the beach, two blocks from the Santa Monica Pier, and one block from the 3rd Street Promenade. Very safe neighbourhood with lots of shops, restaurants and bars very close by. The hotel is not fancy, but the rooms very clean and have what you need for a comfortable stay. I didn't spend much time in my room so I wasn't looking for luxury. The continental breakfast is pastries and coffee, so don't expect to get fueled for the day. I asked the front desk for help with my air conditioning because the room was very warm and the AC didn't seem to be working. Hotel staff did something to it and it was comfortable after that.
The staff are very, very friendly and helpful. The price for this location made Hotel Carmel a great place to stay.
