Reviewed yesterday NEW

Room was nice. It was a rainy night so having the fireplace in the room to cozy up to was a treat. The breakfast area was a bit difficult to find. No signs, just have to remember what the front desk told you the night before. Weather limited our ability to enjoy the area.

This was a quiet hotel but still located blocks from 5 star attractions like boutique shoppers and restaurants. the rooms are spacious, the flat screen tv with full cable appreciated, the fireplace in the room, the nice bathtub/shower and comfortable bed with peaceful quiet rooms( I'm a light sleeper) makes this a nice place to stay. this is conveniently located...

I only got to stay for one night in Carmel but wish it was longer. Fantastic beach town with a lovely atmosphere. The hotel was good, ample parking and friendly staff. The room was clean and had all the amenities you need, plus the bonus of a gas fireplace. Breakfast was above average, but nothing special. Short walk from the...

We stayed here b/c of the family suite, and we did have lots of room (king bed in bedroom, pull out couch in living room, and room for a roll-away...). We were on the 5th floor and view was OK but not great. The room - bathroom is updated, so that's not too bad, but the carpet and look of...

The hotel seemed not exactly what we expected looking its outside, but is very good and meet our expectations when we got to the room. Very well located with a market and three restaurants just around the corner. Very good stay!

It was like being in a dark cavern. You're tucked up the hill but down in a corner and there is zero view of anything but the parking lot. The family suite is musty and dingy feeling lined with old carpet. We were expecting better for $500 night. Maybe better to book two normal rooms up on top floors. Get...

Position is best about this place or you want to just wander the Carmel town area, everything a block away. Also handy access to drive to big sur of...

Whilst travelling down from San Fran to San Diego we stopped off here at the hotel in Carmel. The rooms are a good size and the breakfast although basic continental had beautiful muffins and fresh coffee, as well as the usual waffle maker etc. The beds are comfy and the location is perfect to wonder round Carmel. We enjoyed our...
