Score from 200 reviews Very good
You can't beat the location. It's located in a quiet residential neighborhood and only one short block from the beach. The size of the room was adequate. The staff was responsive and accommodating.
In the 1st floor room that I stayed in, there was a little too much space between the walls and the ends on the window blinds. A person could peek into your room if they wanted to.
Close to the beach Nice cottage style
Size of rooms Rooms a bit oudated Shower area not very clean
Great location, 30 seconds from the beach
Room badly needed updated and bathroom was antiquated and doubtful cleanliness
It is a comfortable hotel. The room, though small, is well structured. The breakfast is ok.
The staff is awful. Extremely impolite. In the entire U.S., we were very well received, except in this place.
One block from the beach - easy access. A mile from town (Ocean Ave.) - Good walk. Staff loaned us beach chairs/umbrella and beach towels for the duration of our stay. Great parking spot right in front of room. Quiet and safe street - could hear the ocean at night.
Very weak continental breakfast - cold cereal, store bought danish and stale croissants. Bedding/bed not very comfortable. "Vacancy" sign out entire weekend - yet we had one of the smallest rooms for $200.00+/night.
All staff were helpful friendly and very efficient . Looked like room was recently redone- beautiful. Gardens were fabulous .
Bathroom shower in our room was really small. I suspect this is not the case in other rooms so ask.
We originally booked to stay for just one night but enjoyed staying here so much that we extended it for a second night. Lovely rooms with great views of the ocean, excellent location and good staff. Great continental breakfast too.
Location, location, location Front desk staff were 'on it' and very helpful. I requested an early check in and got a call to say 'your room is ready'...
The noisy server in the lobby/kitchen area during continental breakfast. Crashing cutlery and dishes. When asked to quiet down, she got defensive, when the door to the kitchen was closed, she re opened it. Fortunately, server on the 2nd day was quiet and considerate.
Ideally situated close to the beach. Nice terrace.
Nearly-cold shower every morning. The bathroom sink is located outside of the toilet room, in the main bedroom. Unmatched, dated tiles in the bathroom. Noisy refrigerator in the room. Low bedroom ceiling. Rather unfriendly staff....we felt as if we were intruding on "their" space. SO many other hotel choices in Carmel....why pay for these inconveniences???
Everything! Charming hotel with lovely gardens, beautifully furnished and great atmosphere.
The service was relly nice. The ladies at the desk were really helpfull. I had an amazing stay. The place is perfectly located next to the ocean.
Room was small and overcrowded with furniture. Could barely find room to put luggage.
The location is very good close to the beach in a residential quite area. The stile of the hotel and the flowers in the garden provide a romantic atmosphere.
The breakfast in the lobby is unconfortable is all the guess go there on the same time. The room size could be a little bigger for travellers like us with a lot of luggage.
Location, very nice and helpful stuff, cleaned rooms with great fireplaces. It is not typical hotel, but hotel with "idea" when it comes to the equipment and look.
Unfortunately poor breakfast.
The location was close to the beach and the flowers on the property are beautiful! Breakfast was great & staff were friendly & helpful. Would stay there again.
A little far from town to walk at night but parking is easy if you have to drive.
The town and how cozy eveything was. Nice and close to the ocean.
Close to the beach. Friendly and helpful staff. Big comfortable rooms. Tables and chairs in a home like environment to sit outside and relax.
Breakfast was very limited and didn't seem to take advantage of local produce, such as jams and fruit. Bit far to walk to the main town in the evening, maybe a 20min walk each way. Parking easy however.
The location is maybe 1/2 block to the beach and you can smell & hear the ocean from the hotel. The included morning breakfast had hard boiled eggs (not just carbs) and was in their lobby which is very nicely appointed and quaint. Pretty landscape with lots of color. Helpful staff.
The room was getting run down; cracks in the walls. The plastic window blinds were broken and didn't cover the windows or french doors. This let in a lot of light from the exterior light fixtures while trying to sleep.
The proximity to the beach; we were one block away. The view and sounds of the Pacific Ocean, from our room, were perfect.
There is a lack of ample parking compared to the number of rooms. Had to park on the street in front of a private residence. Pricing is a concern, a little pricey for location.
Beauitful gardens and close to the beach. Breakfast was very nice. Would stay here again.
Room was too small. Wish we had known larger rooms were available.
needed to postpone my trip by one day because of rain. Had to pay for the room, which I did not occupy.
This beautiful hotel takes some beating. Efficient and friendly staff, comfortable rooms and it's location a short walk from the pleasant sandy beaches makes it perfect.
Beautiful boutique hotel right near the beach. Very professional and competent service when we forgot our passports and needed to have them couriered to us.
