Comfortable and convenient

We enjoyed our stay at the Normandy. The location was in walking distance of the beach and shops in town. Our bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. We were concerned about the noise of the street since we were right on the corner, but at 8:00 all was quiet. The breakfast was just perfect after our walk on the beach in the morning. We would stay at this quaint motel again.

Carmel Weekend

This is a great little hotel that is older and very simple. No frills but great service and nice people. Perfect location close to center of town and the beach. Breakfast was just right too. I would stay here again and would recommend it to my friends. It is fine for kids too.

Anniversary Trip to Carmel

My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our anniversary- first trip in several years away from the kiddos, yay! PROS: The hotel location is great- walking distance to downtown, the beach, etc. We were able to book one night on a weekend which was perfect for us! Most other hotels wouldn't allow us to do that. Our room was clean, and the included breakfast was nice- hard boiled eggs, bagels, fruit, cereal, etc. Parking was easy. CON: This hotel is OUTDATED. The rooms and hotel could use some serious remodeling. It was fine for us (we're pretty easy going as long as it's clean, which it was) but if you're looking for modern furnishings or decor- don't stay here. In a nutshell- you're paying for the location of the hotel, which admittedly is great!

A weekend retreat

Lovely place with free sherry in the lobby. Within walking distance of the beach and tons of great resturants. Parking included too!

A day in Carmel

We arrived early, parked our car on hotel parking lot and got the room soon after. At the check in we got wealth of information and 10-15% off coupons for lunch. The room was very basic but clean and had everything we needed for a 24 hrs stay. I requested a room with queen size bed but bed felt a bit too narrow. The included breakfast in the morning was adequate, with hard boiled eggs, different breads and pasties, juices and coffee. I felt that hotel was a bit overpriced, but considering location, it's hard to find anything decent for less..

Fantastic location.

The best most fantastic location. Close to the beach, shops and many fantastic places to eat. The continental breakfast was generous and fresh. The bathroom was a little dated but clean and well stocked. I would stay there again anytime.

Good Time in Fantasy Village

Pool, good breakfast, excellent location, parking is a competition, clean little room for about the best price in the village. Go to a play just down the street-fantastic for a reasonable price.

Good location

It has a really good location which is close to the shops and the beach and the surroundings are really beautiful. But the breakfast is really normal and simple. BTW, I can hear the noise from next door in my room, Lapith not loud but I still can hear it.
