5.7 Fair
Pros:The staff was extremely friendly.
Cons:The bed was not comfortable.
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:Great attitude from front desk staff. Good offerings for breakfast: boiled eggs, yogurt, bananas, oatmeal, cereals, breads, waffles. Beds were comfortable. Our child had his own bedroom. Very charming and quiet.

2.8 Poor
Pros:Location close to Carmel charms
Cons:Terrible bed(s) Horrific smells in room Breakfast was a joke WiFi did not work So unfortunate!
4.8 Mediocre
Pros:The location is excellent.
Cons:Similar to a Motel 6 but at about four times the cost.
8.2 Very good
Pros:Perfect location: next to downtown, but off the main streets enough for quiet and parking. Good value - not forced to pay extra for "frills" not really needed in Carmel.
6.8 Okay
Pros:John at the front desk was so sweet, helpful and nice. Give him a raise. Customer service at its finest. Overall, a decide price for a room in that area of Carmel. Close to lots of great shops and restaurants and the beach.
Cons:The guy at the front desk on Friday morning was much less pleasant. I had to ask for a receipt when I checked out. The pet fee ($35) is pretty high compared to other hotels nearby.
6.2 Okay
Pros:Friendly/Helpful Staff Complimentary wine from 4-6pm Comfortable room and bed - nothing "posh" but very adequate Slatted blinds over the windows Wall-mounted thermostat to control the gas fireplace Quiet, comfortable location with great laid back "energy" Breakfast better than many; not as good as others - but very adequate, and you get REAL plates, cups, glasses, and flatware!!
Cons:Linens and towels getting a bit on the thin side Really lightweight single ply toilet paper Limited parking
4.5 Mediocre
Pros:Walking distance to shops and restaurants.
Cons:It was okay for one night, but very outdated.
6.8 Okay
Pros:Hotel is very cute and has a lot of character. The gardens are beautiful and easy to walk places.
Cons:We had problems with the heat. The first night it was not turning on and we were freezing. The owner fixed it but then it was over heating the following night and we had to to turn it off. They need to fix their thermostats.
7.4 Good
Pros:Close access to downtown restaurants and shops. Nice breakfast.
Cons:No coffee in the room. Bathroom shelf restricted ability to fully access mirror. No vanity area with electrical outside of bath for women to blow hair etc to get ready.
