Carmel is such a wonderful place and this hotel is really charming. There is nothing fancy about it, but the little extras go a long way, like the gas fireplace which was perfect for a chilly night in a cosy room.

Carmel is the nicest place to stay in the area, but this hotel should really be torn down and rebuilt. Structurally it felt unsafe, as you walk along the outdoor hallway to get to the rooms, it feels like the building is off a bit. The elevator looks like one that was temporary for the construction workers and they never...

This was our second stay at this hotel both stays were very enjoyable. The check-in and check out staff were very pleasant and efficient. We had a beautiful ocean view from the room. Room s are simple but clean, updated, have enough storage, You get your money's worth.

This was the perfect hotel for my recent girls trip to Carmel! It it within walking distance to all of the great wine tasting rooms, restaurants and shops. The room was very clean and we had a beautiful view from the balcony. The breakfast in the morning was nice and charming swimming pool area. The one thing I would change...

We had a room with a king sized bed on the ground floor near the office. There was no view and it was noisy. There is no air-conditioning but the hotel provided a portable fan which made it bearable. The free breakfast was okay but sometimes it was difficult to find a table. Take advantage of the free parking and...

We had the pleasure of staying here as part of our Pacific Coast Highway trip, and from the welcome we received, we knew we were on to a winner. We booked a suite, which was massive, with a fire place which we laugh about, but had to use it! A lovely Swimming Pool, and a Hearty Breakfast just adds to...

The good and the great: location, staff, check-in, room size, bathroom size, cannot complain about. Check-in and out was fast and efficient. Staff were happy to answer questions, make recommendations. The average: breakfast, but lets be honest, it was included in the price, but nothing special, in high season with the high prices, you certainly expect a lot better. The...

We were planning to stay here 2 nights but checked out after 1 night- walked in to a musty smell and dirty carpet. Super small bathroom with someone's long black hair in the shower was just icky. It was hot out and they have no a/c and no ceiling fan. We got a oceanfront view room with almost no deck...

We were traveling south from San Francisco and chose this place for the first night stay. We loved the place. Seemed much better choice than Monterey or Santa Cruz. This area has really nice restaurants and very beautiful surroundings. Room was ok and clean. Wifi worked well. I didn´t try swimming in the pool. Hotel had good value for money....

We got upgraded to a room with a balcony and distant sea view which was a nice surprise. I assume this is because we are reward card members Check in was swift and efficient. We were around the back of the building on level 4 with one room above us Parking was fine and is free. The room itself was...
