Recent guest reviews

Just outside Carmel. Great place to relax and soak in the views. hospitality was awesome!

Went here to get away from stress and relax (and propose). Be sure to ask for a top floor King. That way you won't hear people walking around above you. Our view was fantastic. Sunset at the balcony with a glass of wine or even a hot chocolate was very relaxing. You can have the fire place lit throughout the evening and leave the blinds open without worrying that people will be able to peer into your wide open room (they can't). So much privacy and a beautiful view. Room service / housekeeping was very attentive and prompt. Whatever we needed they brought. Breakfast at the California Market overlooking the! Panini was delicious. The place had other guests but we always felt like we were the only ones there. Valet parking is free and very very courteous. Dinner at Pacific's Edge wasn't good. Service was great, but food sucked (don't recommend it for food, just the view) - the view was fantastic. We recommend eating at Dametra Cafe instead. We would definitely come back again, in a heartbeat.

This property is no doubt one of the most spectacular properties in the country. The views of the Carmel area ocean and rocky shore are awesome. Even though the buildings were built many years ago, they are maintained beautifully. The views from the dining room and bar are unequalled. Room prices are steep, but this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience which is priceless.

Nice valet personnel. Great food in bar cafe & breakfast cafe. beautiful view, but wish we'd known our balcony was going to jut out over Highlands Drive :( That was a little disappointing. There were no comfortable chairs in the room & only one small trash can. Spa and pool were wonderful. Front desk staff was wonderful as well as Brittany. In the large fireplace lounge there were no lamps placed next to any comfortable chairs where you could sit and read (by the fire, etc). View was wonderful (would be perfect without being right on top of Highlands Drive). Overall great. Thank you.

Stayed one week. Rough start on maid service but improved dramatically after bringing shortcomings to the attention of the front desk. They have great (but expensive) rooms.
