Reasonably priced, fun decor, very clean and good location sums it up. Yes, it is not in downtown Carmel, but it is only a 5 minute drive. The staff is pleasant and helpful. The restaurant and lounge on site is good for breakfast (we didn't go to dinner here). Pool and very big hot tub looked inviting but it was...

Don't be fooled by the photos, only a few rooms look like they do in the pictures from ages ago. The rest of the rooms have a stuffy moldy smell, disguised with artificial carpet scents. We were SNEEZING non-stop from strong chemical residues. Hope you enjoy allergies and chemicals! They also trick you with deceptive text on their websites -...

I visited the Carmel area for 4 days of winter seascape photography and this location provided easy access to the best spots between Carmel and Big Sur. The room was spacious and clean, the staff was friendly and the restaurant has the most amazing crab crepes for breakfast. For dinner, one member of our party had many food allergies and...

A family member wanted to stay here so I agreed and was pleasantly surprised. Friendly staff, awesome pool, nice grounds, convenient to many things and just an overall nice feel. Don't be put off by the location next to a shopping center and behind a gas station... you can walk to Starbucks Safeway and a lot of great restaurants and...

As usual the checkin was smooth, rooms were clean and our stay was wonderful. Looks like they have changed from a buffet type breakfast to a order off the menu deal. Service was great once we were recognized coming into the dining room. Staff seem preoccupied with activities in the kitchen rather than having at least one person out in...

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights over a busy weekend in July. Our family of four (kids age 11 and 12) crammed into one basic room. Typically we get 2 rooms, but the rates at this hotel over the weekend were cost prohibitive. The hotel appeared to be completely booked while we were there. As a result it was...

I generally stop here at least twice a year while visiting Carmel and the Monterey Aquarium. The staff has always been very friendly, helpful, and the rooms have always been very clean and well maintained. My only negative experience has during my last stay, in dealing with a very snotty desk clerk..

We stay 2 nights here while visiting Carmel/Monterey area. I chose this hotel based on good reviews, price, and location. This hotel is NOT in the downtown area of Carmel-by-the-sea. However, it only takes 3 minutes to drive and was really not a big deal at all. You can easily see the hotel is old and has gone through renovations....

In town a few years ago, we booked this hotel out of the blue. We had a positive experience so we booked it again in December 2016. We had a nice experience and we enjoyed the renovations. We stayed on the top floor overlooking the hills. It has a mid-century modern feel and it is done well. We had a...

All I can say about this hotel is that had we not been exhausted by the time we reached Carmel we would have checked out and looked for another hotel. The best thing about this hotel is The Barnyard (shops, galleries & restaurants) located across the parking lot. We had a wonderful breakfast the next morning at From Scratch located...
