A plethora of wonderful restaurants and shops close by. 11 blocks to the beach. Nice six mile walk along the shore via Scenic Avenue. The rooms are very nicely appointed. We had... More

It was very cozy and if we wanted to see the view, we could simply go outside and there was a spot at the end of the walkway with... More

We upgraded easily from an average room to one with a balcony and view and loved our stay! It was quiet, had a hot tub, is easy walking distance to downtown Carmel, has good amenities in the room and it is now our favorite hotel in Carmel. We'll be back!

My husband and I stayed here for the last leg of our 10 day trip to SF/Napa/Carmel. This was a charming inn with a romantic vibe. We had room 114 - ocean view, private balcony, and fireplace. I highly recommend for anyone looking for a romantic getaway. It's close enough to all restaurants that you can park your car and... More

This is a good value hotel for Carmel. Close enough to town to walk, with clean, good sized rooms. The staff were very good and the picnic basket breakfast in the morning was something a little different. Nice view of the bay from our balcony.

A modern, well-appointed property. We discovered it one morning on a walk to the "quiet side" of Carmel. Very accomodating main desk staff, lovely units, breakfast basket delivered to your door each morning, nice robes and room amenities. Hot tub for relaxing.

Our room was equipped with a small refrigerator and microwave, and had a private balcony with a partial view of the ocean. Every morning a basket of breakfast food was left at our door - cereal, orange juice, fruit, croissants or hardboiled eggs.
