Location, staff, service, hotel.
beautiful grounds close to the beach good breakfast
tiny rooms if you get there late, you may not be able to get dinner or a drink!
The pool area.
cannot think of anything I did not like.
Aside from the great location by all the Carmel hot spots, the hotel really tries to complete the homey feel by adding all sorts of treats. In the morning, someone can make you a waffle, there's lemonade and ice tea during the day, free local wine tastings in the lobby in the evening, and tasty cookies at night. The place was comfortable and clean.
Parking could be hard since it's just whatever's available on the street by the hotel, or to pay at a public parking facility nearby at the plaza. Also, the town is super dark at night, so walking around is not recommended (but they have free shuttle pick-up service in the nighttime). There's also no elevator so if you have hefty luggage, this could be uncomfortable.
Hotel was very clean and really stunning . Perfect location and super friendly staff Had an amazing stay
In Carmel, you're not likely to locate inexpensive bargains but overall this property provides superior 'bang for the buck.' We were impressed. All staff members high caliber, helpful, and friendly.
Everyone is so helpful and pleaseant!
The hotel room was decent ($409) and if you stick you head out the window you could see the beautiful ocean, but what made the stay there special was the staff and extras. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. We loved the wine hour, cookies and milk, and the delicious champagne brunch!!! Beautiful area to visit.
I loved the room. We had a spectacular view of the ocean with every night sunset. It was beautiful.
Nothing. It was all good.
Cold champagne waiting inocean view room. My parents said it was the most wonderful weekend.
Free breakfast, bartenders, location
Beautiful property and gardens , well maintained. Loved the free breakfast , the view of the breakfast terrace, proximity to the beach.
The hotel was charming with a cozy fire in the lobby fireplace. The champagne breakfast included in the room rate was fantastic. The staff were helpful and polite, even offering and serving us tea in the lobby late in the evening.
Our room was situated directly off the front lobby. It was extremely cold when we arrived on 12/31. The baseboard heat did not warm the room. We were given a space heater which did the trick but also made a fair amount of noise. The room was large but dark, with few windows. Nothing like the rooms pictured on the website. My regret is that I did not ask for a different room but we were told on check in that the hotel was fully booked. Try to avoid room 200! It was not worth the high price we paid.
This is a charming old hotel. A few blocks from the main street. We only stayed one night on New Years Eve. The staff were great , very friendly and helpful. would have loved to stay longer.
Best property Best gardens Best breakfast included Proximity to beach and town Beautiful
Construction outside window No TV working but took 1/5 of bill off
Close to beach and main street. Nice rooms and the hotel bar.
Really expensive and availability.
Fantastic location, great staff, excellent free champagne brunch, fair price, relaxing atmosphere, outdoor pool, manicured grounds..we travel alot and if we return to Carmel I would stay no where else
these 3 points are not negatives but travelers should be aware... there is only street parking albeit free but even with a full hotel we had no problems over a 5 day stay..there is no elevator but there are rooms on the ground floor, there is no full service restaurant but 2 blocks away on Ocean Avenue there must be 50 restaurants and with the free shuttle provided by La Playa you don't even have to walk home after a great meal
Location, welcome glass of champagne, great staff, wine and cheese, milk and cookies, fabulous champagne breakfast, shuttle service--LOVED everything !!!!!
Can not think of one thing we didn't love !!!
Outstanding staff. Beautiful property within walking distance of downtown and the beach
Rack rate is ridiculously expensive
The breakfast was the best we had in our trip, very fresh and a great choice of quality food, the staff were friendly and helpful, the building and gardens beautiful,with resident humming birds a bonus.
Our room, one of the less expensive ones, was rather small and the lack of AC was a surprise.
All the staff members were extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfasts were fresh and plentiful. The hotel was quiet while we were there but we were told it is normally much busier. In a quiet position 5 minutes walk from shops and restaurants. Suited our needs very well.
Minor issues - bathroom window wouldn't close properly so couldn't be locked. Didn't worry us much, we still felt secure.
What was there not to like?fabulous staff, gorgeous sea view room, great location,lovely breakfast,champagne on arrival but most of all the wonderful Jovann who was so helpful during our stay.. Taxing us,booking restaurants so pleasant a guy.
Champagne on arrival Well-appointed rooms Excellent shuttle service into town Helpful, friendly staff Beautiful grounds and location Very clean Delicious breakfast
Bar very expensive and closed very early Other clientele rather snobby!
