I checked in on a late reservation and the front desk staff was wonderful. The room and amenities were nice~ exactly what I was looking for during my brief stay in Carmel. Conveniently located as well. I would definitely stay here again.

There was blood on the sheets! Not clear if they didn't change the sheets between guests or if housekeeping bled on them when changing. We asked the front desk to have the manager contact us, and never heard from her.

Long story short: we were not asked if we were okay with pet friendly room-we had the WORST experience at any hotel EVER. Since we checked in so late at night with our young kids, we suffered through the allergies which led to asthma.

Long story short: we were not asked if we were okay with pet friendly room-we had the WORST experience at any hotel EVER. Since we checked in so late at night with our young kids, we suffered through the allergies which led to asthma. It wasn't until we figured out we were given a pet friendly room that we realized what was causing the severe allergies and asthma. When we complained in the morning, it was too late. We liked the hotel well enough but not sure if we will ever take a chance at this hotel again. **Warning to all non pet owners, make sure you are not given a pet friendly room. Read less

I frequently stay at this hotel because of the large delux rooms that face the pool. The pool also is the nicest in Carmel. The pool can be a bit chilly in winter but it is doable if you swim around. The bathrobes and hot tub are a plus. Behind the hotel is a fabulous French Bakery for pastries or Sur restaurant for lunch/dinner and From… Read more
I frequently stay at this hotel because of the large delux rooms that face the pool. The pool also is the nicest in Carmel. The pool can be a bit chilly in winter but it is doable if you swim around. The bathrobes and hot tub are a plus. Behind the hotel is a fabulous French Bakery for pastries or Sur restaurant for lunch/dinner and From Scratch (breakfast/lunch) -which is a staple for locals. You can also eat a lovely $ breakfast at the hotel but it has been a few years since I have had dinner there. If you are looking for nightlife the bar/dance floor is active esp on the weekend. Carmel has lovely live theater year round and this is a great place to stay for couples and for families. Read less

3 nights here. Has a motel feel but is nicer than your average. Rooms were large and clean, if a bit dated. Reception staff were very friendly.

3 nights here. Has a motel feel but is nicer than your average. Rooms were large and clean, if a bit dated. Reception staff were very friendly. Location is on the main highway and is not directly near the town centre of Carmel. Plenty of restaurants nearby in the two shopping centres plus a Safeway. Breakfast was included. The cooked to order was really good but the buffet on the weekend was a complete let down. Very small choice and not very nice quality. Breakfast service was also very slow and not particularly helpful. Quick to bring a receipt for $0 to get an extra tip. Read less
