Room was near 95 degrees when we checked in. No AC. Had to leave door and windows open and place a fan in the doorway to get room cool enough to stay in. Only one chair in room. Promised on website (still there)" breakfast delivered to room". When I asked this morning she said "Oh we don't do that anymore"...

Stayed here for a day and night first week of January. Operative word: RUSTIC. Things I liked: the cabin & surrounding grounds, Fireplace, Fridge/coffeemaker/microwave in room, overall atmosphere, PRICE. Things that need improving: room decor, lack of electrical outlets, bathroom (in general), bedsheets (old). This is a great stop for couples on a budget who are not high maintenance. If...

Overall the whole hotel just feels abandoned. The carpet was ugly and dirty. The same goes for the shower curtains and bath tub. Breakfast was also bad. The only reason we didn't leave immediately is because there were no other nice hotels available and we were tired from driving the whole day. Thank God the sheets were clean!

Stayed here this past weekend for the last time, the place has really gone down since last time we were here. Bad service and with no notice whatsoever they no longer deliver breakfast to your room but now set it up in the lobby for you to come and serve yourself. this would be fine if they didn't advertise as...

We have stayed here many times and thought it was nice place for the price. Wellthistime we were very disappointed. The rooms are very sterile not a bit charming. The "fireplace" is a wall heater that glows, which had no way to regulate it was hot or cold. The floors are bare. There was no TV station guide in the...

Difficult to find, had to stop at another hotel to ask where it was. Sign was hard to see in the dark. Once we found the resort, it was difficult to find out cottage. Finally parked on the street and walked through the grounds to find it. The beds were comfortable. The bathroom had a musty smell to it. The...

About 30 small cabins nestled in tall trees. Our renovated cabin was roomy and clean. Lacked bath towels but did have 4 washcloths. New fridge, but no microwave. Coffeemaker missing, but coffee and tea on tray. Took two requests to get bath towels and coffeemaker. Indoor spa jacuzzi was lukewarm, just about body temperature. Staff refused to up the water...

My husband and I took our 6 year old to Hearst Castle and decided to spend the night in Carmel on the way home. It was a last minute decision and so there were not many hotels available that can accommodate 3 people so we chose Carmel Resort Inn. We knew Carmel was an expensive town so we weren't expecting...
