“Lovely little hotel”
Reviewed 14 May 2012

This is a quaint little motel-style hotel, with free wifi and plenty of parking. The room and bathroom were very clean. The room was a decent size with an amazingly comfortable bed.
Breakfast was included and there were quite a few good options. The egg dish contained meat but the made a meat free one for us vegetarians, which was very much appreciated.
There is a shopping centre across the road with a few good shops and restaurants and the most amazing cheese shop.
The walk to the ocean is lovely, down a tree lined road with cute little houses and amazing shops and restaurants.
Wish we had spent more time there.

Like the title says; nothing special about this Motel. It is located conveniently on the main road in Carmal, and you can park your car in front of your room.

The rooms were clean, and the beds comfortable. But again there was nothing extraordinary. The rooms are overpriced, I paid $200 for one night, and there are better options in this price range in Carmel.

A one time visit.

Really liked this hotel. It's in a good location near the shops and restaurants and only ten minutes from the ocean. The wifi is good and you can park your car right outside your door. Best of all, as another reviewer said, the bed is like sleeping on a cloud. Would definitely stay here again.

If you are looking for a simple, less expensive stay, this may be your place in Carmel. We had a coupon deal, and love Carmel. This place is not my favorite place in Carmel. The Inn is at the other end of town near all shops and restaurants. You can walk to the beach. It is a nice long walk. Ask for an upper corner level room. The Inn is near the fire station so you may hear sirens and all the room are near the main street, it is noisy.
Rooms are very small- bathroom needs remodeling. No flat screen TV. Internet yes and they serve a nice little breakfast.
If you see a groupon deal and want to visit Carmel. Buy it, great value. We would not stay there again, unless it was on a coupon deal. If you really want to experience Carmel stay closer to the other end of town and the ocean. I love the Cypress Inn. Doris Day's place - it's dog friendly and has lots of personality.

The hotel is ideally situated on Ocean Drive which is the main street down to the beach. It had everything we wanted within the room. We slept very well. Carmel is a very expensive place to eat and shop ,the Village Inn was very fairly priced. Breakfast which is included was a buffet ,unfortunately there were not enough seats for everyone to sit so people had to wait. The receptionist was quite abrupt but otherwise we enjoyed our stay.
