There are many small, affordable motels in Carmel. Most are fine. Some are very good. This one is better than that. We enjoyed a very nice, large room with separate bath and sitting area. The rooms are meandered across different levels. The grounds are impeccable and the service friendly. And the location is ideal - at the bottom of Ocean Ave. and a short walk to the beach.

Room Tip: We had a bit of noise from the room above - try for the upper level.

This hotel is perfect. It's in an ideal location with easy walks into town and to the beach. The hotel itself is lovely. The rooms are spotless, bright, spacious and beautiful. The front desk service was courteous and welcoming. A light but tasty breakfast is brought to your door at the time you request and coffee and cookies are available all day at the front desk. The beds are super comfy and the room was quiet even though we faced the road.
Our only regret is that we only stayed one night. We'll definitely be back!

Decent rate for a last minute booking. Rooms are fine. Checked in late and got a courtesy call saying they'd leave the key for us! Parking convenient. Location awesome. Too many good eateries in town to waste calories on the average continental breakfast. Great weekend. I love Carmel.

We have stayed at Lobos Lodge during our last three visits to Carmel. It is always comfortable and the beds are great. We appreciate the privacy and quiet of the layout and being able to park on site. It could not be in a better location for visiting the shops, galleries and the beach. A bonus is the morning continental breakfast (delivered to your room). We highly recommend the Lobos Lodge.

This is a pleasant lodge, if you are around fora few days its a good base. The down side is service, it is not really on the friendly side, they are not interested in helping you. no laundry facilities, no take out laundry no restaurant basically anything that is not in front of you now is not going to happen.
On the positive side the room was great, there was a complimentary continental breakfast, wifi was good and the location is excellent. The place is well situated for a long term stay, not sure about summer as there was no pool. Not good for the elderly, awkward stairs. But again a great location and we will happily return
