8.8 Very good
Pros:Location was great. Cookies in reception and breakky were terrific. The rooms are spacious (huge actually) and well appointed. couldn't ask for anything else.
Cons:You can hear other guests coming and going in their cars and if they talk loudly in the driveway or on the corridors. I suggest that at check-in that the staff advise all guests to minimise noise at nighttime.
6.5 Okay
Pros:Room was good with lots of space
Cons:Bathroom was tired and needed updating
8.0 Very good
Pros:It's an older motor lodge style hotel, but the rooms have been nicely updated. It was clean and bed very comfortable. The Nespresso pod coffee maker is a nice convenience. Plus the location was a short walk from the main streets of downtown Carmel. Request a second story room, overlooks the ocean in the distance, otherwise I think your view is another hotel. Recommend for a short stay.
Cons:It's not a luxury stay, the included continental breakfast was nothing to write home about, but it was 'free'.
6.8 Okay
Pros:Breakfast one day (but not both - didn't get a card for the second morning, didn't realize we had to fill it out for every morning we wanted breakfast - so make sure you fill out your menu card!!) Walking distance to downtown and beaches Clean
Cons:Did not get breakfast second morning Our room faced right out to fire pit - loud No fans / AC - it was HOT, air was not moving, and could not leave window open due to noise factor from street and fire pit Parking lot is very small, tight spots
