Not for light sleepers!

Posted Aug 4, 2016
Pros: Friendly staff & location
Cons: The property needs to do more to let guests know about their "Quiet Zone" restriction AND to enforce them. Housekeeping staff needs to be quieter
Location: all of Carmel's shops, galleries, restaurants as well as the beach are within walking distance.
We were quite pleased with the reception at the front desk, lobby appearance and the room and its amenities. They could certainly do a better job with the k-cups provided in the rooms, however. Had we known there was a Keurig machine, we'd have brought our own.... The inn is only 20 rooms and close to everything in DT Carmel. Our big issue with the stay was that there was a group of wedding attendees staying there. And, while the hotel says they advise everyone at check-in that there is a 10PM to 8AM Quiet Zone on the entire grounds. (Basically, it's just a parking area.) On the first evening, the group stayed in the parking lot talking loudly and disturbing everyone else. Other guest also opened their doors to tell them to quiet down. There was no cooperation from this group. At One AM, I walked and told them to "Be quiet! and said it's one AM. The response I got, apparently from the bride was "I'm getting married tomorrow!" The following morning, we went to reception and related the happenings of the previous evening. The receptionist, Sarah, apologized, told us about the Quiet Zone, (we hadn't been told about it) and advised us to call for the night manager should it happen again. The party returned that evening at 10:45PM via a small bus. We allowed 15-20 minutes before calling about the noise. At 11:15, we called the first time. And, again about midnight. If anyone came from hotel management, they had no effect. Finally, again at one am, my wife went out & they left.

Hermoso lugar, excelente estadia

Pros: La arquitectura
Cons: El desayuno
Carmel es maravilloso y el hotel parece salido de película con el hogar afuera. Las habitaciones son confortables esta muy bien ubicado. Lo único que no es excelente es que te traen el desayuno en un bolso y lo tomas en la habitacion

Nice hotel. Great location in Carmel.

Posted May 12, 2016
Pros: Our room hab a large jacuzzi tub in a separate room with double doors that opened to the main room. It also had a small fireplace that was a nice feat
Location: The hotel was centrally located just two short blocks from the Main Street. Shopping, dining, wine tasting and the beach were all within easy walking
The hotel staff was very accommodating and friendly. Our room was very clean and spacious.

Pros: ホテルのポリシーとしてペット、喫煙を固く禁止していたので、嗜好の合う人(我々は適合)には安心。
Cons: 部屋でコーヒーを入れることもできるけれど、ロビーが8:00ではなくもっと早くから空いていればそこで提供しているコーヒーの価値も上がると思います。早起きの人には向いてないかも。
Location: 立地は海岸に行くにも、街歩きにも便利な場所です。
