“Amazing value for Carmel.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2011

I booked a suite here because of the great price, especially for Carmel. This is a recently upgraded vintage motor lodge with free parking out front, a big plus for the area. The remodel was very well done with modern interiors and upscale furniture.

The suites are on a lower level by the pool, so they have no view and are kind of dark, but they are spacious with a separate bedroom. They still have tube TVs, but the furniture is in place for flatscreens I assume are coming. The decor is nice and the bathroom amenitues better than expected for the price. Housekeeping is excellent...our room was spotless. The suites are noisy because staff walks right by the windows to get to their supplies, but we would still book it again.

There is free wired interent in the room, which worked fine. I think wireless is available near the small lobby area. There is a sundeck on the second floor that has a bit of an ocean view.

The location is great, just two short blocks to the main drag and there are numerous breakfast and dinner restaurants with five minutes walk. The town is small enough that we easily walked all of the shops and main parts of town.

Breakfast is provided, but it is very limited. We opted for a diner-type restaurant each morning less than a block away. Service at the front desk upon arrival was very helpful and polite. The guy recommended a fantastic Mexican restaurant we never would have found on our own.

If you are looking for something less fussy than a bed and breakfast or Carmel's fancier hotels, then this is a great option and a wonderful price.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second floor.

Our family stayed at this hotel for three nights while on a mini-vacation in Carmel. We've been to Carmel several times in the past both with and without kids and I have to say I thought the service here was as good or better than any of the places we have stayed at so far. The manager was very friendly and accommodating. The location was also excellent, being just a short walk away from Ocean Ave and a lot of great restaurants. The double queen room we stayed in was clean, nicely decorated and just big enough to handle a family with two grade school-aged children. Being on the second floor, we could see the ocean from a distance from our window which was nice. The heating system which uses hot water pipes does make kind of a bubbling noise which might affect some sensitive sleepers. Breakfast wasn't anything fancy but the kids liked the waffles from the do-it-yourself waffle maker. We will defintely consider staying here again the next time we come to Carmel.

Room Tip: The best views are on the second floor.

The rooms are very clean and contemporary. This hotel is centrally located. And the best of all is that it is very fairly priced compared to other hotels I checked

I stayed at this hotel while visiting the area. The rooms were clean and well kept, the host on site was friendly and eager to answer any questions and offer suggestions. The location cannot be beat- it's within easy walking distance to the shops on Ocean Avenue and the beach! Cannot say enough good things about my experience here.

This hotel was a great find. The manager was very friendly and helpful.
The room was updated and very clean. Sun deck area was great for reading and relaxing without the breeze blowing your paper around. It was a delight to stay and we will return soon
