Room was clean and comfortable. Very friendly staff and helpful. Followed strict Covid guidelines. Continental breakfast was still available but they served the coffee and juice themselves. Breakfast items were wrapped in cellophane. Easy check-in and check-out. Lots of parking options on property. Oh and we love that their dog friendly.

The real reason you want to stay here is for location: walking distance to Carmel's many offerings. The staff is super sweet, and welcoming to dogs (humans, too!). They offered my pup a frisbee and a treat upon arrival in exchange for the $50 pet fee. Breakfast is efficient. Accommodations are clean. All that being said, I could not WAIT to check out of Hofsas House, if only to vacate the stuffy, outdated room. As other reviews have stated, the showers are small and short (at 5'8", I could easily reach up and touch the ceiling). Carpeting made me wish I'd brought slippers. Not all rooms are created the same, and mine was fairly small. Furniture was cramped and outdated. Sort of reminded me of a compact version of what I imagine someone's great grandma's house to be like, right down to the creepy bedding. The most free space I had was in the bathroom, on the floor of which the mini fridge was placed. The "ocean view" room I paid for had barely a glimpse of the early morning Pacific Ocean; by afternoon, the glare is so bad that the almost nonexistent glimmer of water was lost. I regret paying for the upgrade. This was absolutely zero fault of the staff; this establishment has just not grown with the times. (Although some new interior flooring and a fresh coat of paint would certainly not hurt at all.) I can see how others might consider it "quaint" or "charming", but I seek out something a bit more modern when traveling.

Nice quaint property close to shops and beautiful ocean views.

Close to village, great location. David Shiplett

Staff at the hotel is wonderful and as promised in the reservation, they offered a basic continental breakfast. The Hotel is quite old as represented in the drapes, carpeting and overall décor of the hotel. Based on the staff and closeness to downtown Carmel, I would recommend this place. But it really is the not an up-to-date property.

The rooms were large and clean, and the beds were comfortable. The pool was wonderful - the water was so clean and clear and a nice temperature, despite a cool, breezy night. Very nice continental breakfast. We wanted Italian for dinner, and we loved Le Dolce Vita, one of the places they mentioned to us. We had a great stay!
