This is a great place to stay in Carmel....right in the heart of the shops/restaurants. Also a short walk to the beach. Very clean. Only complaint is that the room was a little small. We had a standard queen room, but I do believe that they have larger rooms. A nice touch was that they serve breakfast to your room... More

Comfortable inn lodging. Staff and service was great. Location very good. Room 14 has stairs behind the head board wall. They are noisy enough to be a mild nuisance early in the morning when breakfast is being prepared and served.
