We stay 2 nights here while visiting Carmel/Monterey area. I chose this hotel based on good reviews, price, and location. This hotel is NOT in the downtown area of Carmel-by-the-sea. However, it only takes 3 minutes to drive and was really not a big deal at all. You can easily see the hotel is old and has gone through renovations....

In town a few years ago, we booked this hotel out of the blue. We had a positive experience so we booked it again in December 2016. We had a nice experience and we enjoyed the renovations. We stayed on the top floor overlooking the hills. It has a mid-century modern feel and it is done well. We had a...

All I can say about this hotel is that had we not been exhausted by the time we reached Carmel we would have checked out and looked for another hotel. The best thing about this hotel is The Barnyard (shops, galleries & restaurants) located across the parking lot. We had a wonderful breakfast the next morning at From Scratch located...

At first glance, it looks like an old Motor Lodge and my family thought I had not picked a good hotel! I booked based upon reviews and frankly, there also wasn't much to choose from as it was during the holidays. The price was good and we booked two rooms. We were on a 10 day trip and we stayed...

With no knowledge of places to stay in Carmel , I took a chance and book this Inn for six of us and a small dog. All worked out very well. Our grandson with asthma was able to have a rug less room. The two grandkids and their parents really enjoyed the swimming pool. The rooms that are advertised as...

A last-minute family health issue made it necessary for us to change our plans. Hotel management was kind enough to reimburse us for one of our two non-refundable prepaid rooms. Since we had paid for the other room, we decided that I should make the drive to Carmel and use the room. The non-smoking room was fine, with included wifi,...

We searched for a room in Carmel on New Year's weekend so we were not surprised that they were difficult to find at a price we were willing to pay. This hotel was expensive but had good ratings and a room so we took it. We would stay there again but would definitely compare price and parking to hotels in...

Pros: The room was very nicely decorated and clean. The price of about $100 was one of the best we found for the area. Happy Hour buffet is a great deal. Cons: Room was small. Housekeeping didn't replace towels and face cloths. Heater didn't work very well and was very noisy, clunking on and off all night. Room is not...

We had one overnight stop in Carmel as part of our honeymoon trip around the west coast of America, and we were so pleasantly surprised by how wonderful Carmel was that it quickly became the most favourite part of our trip! We didn't expect much from the hotel as it seemed to be part of what looked like motorway services,...

Very nice hotel blocks from downtown, across the street from a nice shopping area. The rooms are quite pretty, the hotel is quiet, the staff very friendly. This is a very nice hotel extremely well priced. Be sure to enjoy the gas fire pit in the comfortable patio.
