My family had an unexpected delay in our home being ready for move in. In the midst of a very busy travel season, over the Memorial Day weekend, most places surrounding Monterey, Carmel and associated area were full. Durning this seemingly inocuous event, it was really a quite stressful time as we had just driven fromWashington with the promise of...

We spent one night at this hotel/motel. The location in Carmel is excellent...easy walking distance to the town shops and restaurants. If you are not too fussy about having a luxurious room or lovely décor, this is a great place to sleep for one night. The lady that greeted us was very pleasant. Our room included breakfast which they delivered...

The room was clean and comfortable. We had plenty of room and the hotel was very convenient to shops, restaurants, etc. and not far from the beach. We would definitely stay there again. Breakfast was brought to our room each morning and it was more than adequate, a croissant, strawberries, juice and coffee.

Fairly standard motel room, but pet friendly. Had an upstairs room with small balcony, which made it nice. Very convenient to several excellent restaurants within a two block radius. A mini-fridge in the room would have been welcome. Coffee from the lobby was actually good.

Hello, NK! Thanks for the nice review and I'm so glad you got to enjoy Carmel with your dog. It's one of the dog-friendliest towns in America, and I hope you made it down to off-leash Carmel Beach, my dog's favorite place in the world. Working on the mini-fridges. We get raves about the coffee...it's from Carmel Valley Roasting Company....

The room didn't have air con so this may be an issue in summer but did have a portable fan which we used. The continental breakfast was also nice. We would stay again if we are ever back in...
