Lovely location in a residential neighborhood near the crashing waves of Asilomar State Beach. Nice (apartment style) rooms with two TV's and gas fireplaces. My fireplace was non-operational. Delightful staff. Very impressive self-service breakfast. Had trouble with WiFi, only to learn that the desk clerk had given me an expired password. Grrrrr!

We had a wonderful stay, can't wait to return. Perfect location, friendly staff, nice rooms. The breakfast was good, we had two rooms which the kids loved. Behind the hotel was a nice walking trail and Asilomar is never close.

The room was a surprise being quite large and with a full kitchen which was great for heating up leftovers from the night before's dinner. The "suite' was comfortable with a separate sitting room and table in the kitchen. Everything seemed fairly updated and the room and bathroom were clean. One drawback is that the property is in a neighborhood...

Nice place to stay for vacations, rooms are nice size and balcony is a nice touch too. My only issue is that I could not receive a closing statement when I checked out and the front desk did not have a solution, said she would email my closing statement, I'm still waiting, I did not receive one from Trip Advisor...

I loved the 2nd floor room we got because there was no one below or above us as the room was offset. It was quiet and great location. We travelled with our teen daughter, so it was nice that there was a separate bedroom to give us privacy.

This is a great hotel. Very spacious!!!! A lot of amenities. Has different areas, so somewhat separated for privacy yet you can still interact with everyone if needed. Outside area as well. Good location as well.

You'll feel like you're in a secluded location;however, you are right in the middle of things. Separate buildings with up to 6 units provide a unique environment. Close to Carmel, Pebble Beach, Monterey Bay, Seaside and a 5 minute walk to Asilomar State Beach. The entire staff were professional, courteous and friendly. Branden at the front desk was extremely helpful....
