OK, it needs some updating. If you want marble in the bathroom, forget this place. There are several cabins over a whole city block just NW of the downtown area. We booked two for a family visit on a recent busy weekend. Our room was large, the bed was comfortable and cozy (there isn't good insulation, but our fireplace worked... More

This was such a nice place to stay. The managers are so sweet. They allow dogs and since we had one with us, that was great. We had a one bedroom/living area/bath and it was perfect. We wanted to stay there again on our way home, but they were filled up. Not surprising. I would stay here again in a... More

The cottages are very cute, and the area is a quiet one just outside of Carmel Village. The electric fireplace was a hoot--throwback to the 1970's! It took about 15-20 minutes to walk downtown, just as the staff had mentioned. The walk can be steep at times, FYI. There was some confusion about the breakfast time. They said it would... More

I stayed a night here in December. The room was clean, well maintained, and well stocked with towels, amenities (soap, shampoo, lotion). Breakfast came promptly and was more than ample -- two yogurts, apple, banana, clementine, muffins, mango and peach juice. Bed comfortable.. Staff were efficient and courteous. Parking ample. Easy to find in the somewhat confusing street layout of... More

We liked the location and the breakfast was decent. However, this is probably one of the most poorly maintained hotels I have ever stayed at in in my life.

Comfortable and cozy room with gas heater, microwave, small fridge and coffee machine... The room isn't big but enough for a couple. Breakfast is delivered every day around 8:30 am and is good and fresh! Good choice for 2 or more days... The bad side is its location: not walking distance from downtown / around 10min by car.

Thank Flavisp
