family accommodations in/near Carmel

Hello. We are family of 4 looking for accommodations in or near Carmel. We do not necessarily need to be in the town of Carmel. I would not mind that, but it is certainly not essential. We plan to use it as a base for seeing Carmel, Pt. Lobos, Big Sur, Santa Cruz, etc. Most important: we want a suite or a two bedroom place or something like that, so we are not all squeezed into a single room. Looking to spend around $200 a night - something like that. Less would be great. More would be OK if it is really worth it. I would appreciate any suggestions.

By the way, we have never been to Santa Cruz. What's it like? Is it an easy day trip from Carmel area? Worth doing?

Thanks!

You don't say when you're coming, and that affects both price and availability. My top recommendation for you is Andril Fireplace Cottages in Pacific Grove. Nice location in a treed area within walking distance of Asilomar Beach. An easy drive to all the other places on the Peninsula--Carmel, Monterey, Point Lobos, etc.

Thanks. We are coming in mid-April. One place I was looking at is Adobe Inn, in Carmel. It has a 2-BR suite. Any thoughts on this place? (I did read the TA reviews -- any other thoughts?)

Adobe Inn is a nice place, and it's in a good location for walking around town. Offhand, the places I know of with suites are very pricey, but I'll do some checking and see what I can find.

A few to look into:

briarwood-inn-carmel.com/units_and_rates/ind…

fireplaceinncarmel.com/units_and_rates/index…

ibts-dolphininn.com/index.cfm/guest_rooms.htm

These are all over $200 but still under $300
