Convenient location, very close to wide selection of restaurants. Easy and lots of parking on premise. Friendly staff.

Loved having the fireplace but definitely needed more blankets since we didn't have the heat on at night. Also, would have been great to have access to a microwave somewhere if not in room.

Very nice location for visiting the Carmel downtown — everything, shops, restaurants, wine tasting, art galleries, are only steps away. My room had the extra amenities of a balcony with a view of the Pacific Ocean, and a gas-logs fireplace, nice touches. Room decor was OK and bathroom was very clean with shower doors instead of curtains. Only disappointments were the lack of anything but a very minimal “grab and go” breakfast, and the lack of any glassware (glass cups in bathroom, coffee mugs, wine glasses) in the room. Restoring these features would be first on my list to elevate the room firmly out of the “motel” category to the next level.

We have stayed there many times really enjoy it.

Clean room. Close to shopping and dining!

Nice room, comfy bed. Clean and close to town. Walls are thin.

Great location and ample parking. Friendly staff. Comfy bed and pillows. Our room, though, was so drab and devoid of almost any decor. All I could do was think about how I would remodel it—and the bathroom—in my mind. The carpet could use a good vacuuming, especially in those hard-to-reach areas near the base of the bed.

Room was clean, and having a room on the top floor helped to mitigate the noise of the thin walls/ceilings that are commonplace in Carmel. Breakfast service has not resumed (expected per website, but still disappointing compared to other hotels in Carmel and CA that have resumed).

So close to the beaches and parks that we love.

Great location . Friendly staff

Super clean and comfortable room. Walls were a little thin so we slept with ear plugs. Good location.

Great location for downtown Ocean Avenue and walk to and on the beach (for the latter - you should be able to walk at least 3 miles along with hill work).

Beautiful room and location. Staff was very friendly and helpful! Looking forward to staying again

Ice room good location in the heart of eyerything

Uncomfortable bed, and room without air conditioning. It is a very noisy facility, you can hear everybody using the bathroom. We had to have the windows open because it didn’t have air conditioning, and our next door neighbors were outside, talking loud and vaping by our window.
