      Individual guest reviews

      • Single

        Very friendly and helpful staff. Good bed and bathroom, and can see some TLC was taken in preparing the room. Very relaxing and enjoyable experience.

        Ironing board was a table top version and not full size.

        The position and the moderate price compared with other prices in Carmel which are quite expensive

        • Average rating
      • Group of friends

        The staff at check in was extremely pleasant and very helpful.

        Rooms are old but nice...but noise level from room above was very disruptive during the night.

        • Average rating
      • Single

        The location and the view from your room.

        It is very noisy and you can hear everything being said next door. There is no small refrigerator, the tv must have been made in the 70's. It is really overpriced!

      • Older travelers

        Great price for a Carmel get-a-way weekend during a busy time (ATT&T golf week). Near all Carmel shops and restaurants.

        Room #7 is one of the original cottages and was dated and small. Drafty and cold for the first night, as we didn't notice that housekeeping left one (of 2) window open during 40-50F weather prior to our check-in.

      • Couple

        The staff was very friendly and helpful, the location was good, close to shopping, restaurants and the beach.

        The rooms are a bit dated and the bed wasn't very comfortable.

        Free parking, spacious room, small heated pool.

        Breakfast buffet in the reception area is rather poor.

      • Older travelers

        The staff was very friendly and the breakfasts were good. The location is also very good, close to restaurants, shopping, and the beach.

        Our room was very small (Room 7). It was one of the original rooms at the hotel.

        Te location was close to shopping and restaurants.

        Very noisy. The rooms over look a parking lot and people were slamming doors and turning their alarms on in their cars all night.....

        Cosy room, friendly and helpful staff. Great location for Carmel and Valley area. Breakfast pastries were excellent and hotel also has heated pool and free parking.

        Unlucky with noisy neighbours above, but would definitely return
