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.
