Motel converted to B&BPosted Jul 28, 2016
Pros: Centrally located. Clean.Quiet.
Cons: Where to begin ? It is completely outdated.
Location: It is centrally located and near everything Carmel has to offer.
The hotel is a 1960's type motel. Not much has been done to it since.But,it is centrally located,reasonably priced,for Carmel, and clean. It is a basic accommodation,but probably average for Carmel. If budget is important,this a good option.

Okay - but...Posted Jul 28, 2016
Pros: Location was nice.
Cons: Better breakfast service.working appliances (radio, fan, tv)
Location: Nice location for wandering around town
Okay room but nothing special. In room standing fan was broken but we were able to keep it upright with towels and shoes. Clock radio did not work. "Waffle" breakfast nice idea, but only one iron and many guests means a long wait (we left and ate elsewhere).

A hotel in downtownPosted Jul 7, 2016
A quite good hotel in downtown. My room has a partial ocean view. It has a beautiful court yard. The room is neat, clean, but the bath tub is quite old. It provides a continental breakfast, which is included in the room fee. It is a pet friendly hotel, my dog likes it. However $35/night fee for a dog is high.

A long steep road to the beach - need carPosted Jun 29, 2016
Pros: The staff
Cons: Yes as above - needs new carpet. Bed and the small room/closet needs an uplift.
Location: Close enough to walk to shops but getting too far away from the beach - road very steep - you need a car - too far to walk due to the steep road.
Staff were great but you needed a car to stay here - the walk down a very steep hill to the beach and back up was foot breaking. Carpet made you feel dirty in the room and the bed for the third adult was like a closet. Staff were excellent and very very helpful. New carpet would make a huge difference to the feeling of the room.

Location was awesome but that's about itPosted Jun 24, 2016
Cons: See above
Very close to Ocean and all the shops and restaurants in Carmel. For almost $300 a night the conditions of the room were horrible. The shutters on the windows were broken. The carpet, bedding, lamps, and other décor were completely outdated, old, and stained. The bathroom sink was completely coming apart from the wall. The caulking was old and peeling.. the sink literally moved. The shampoo and conditioner came in packages similar to those you receive free in small gift bags. The towels were thin and there wasn't much parking. We were in town for a race and expected a lot more charm from a hotel in downtown Carmel.

Not so nicePosted Jun 11, 2016
Check in staff was great. Room was ok, I would say a 2 star. Continental breakfast included cold cereal, oatmeal, or a waffel. The lady that tended the breakfast seemed like she was so afraid of being wasteful she would put out 2 cups of OJ but 10 people wanted it. If you asked for more she would get it but most people assumed they were out. I sat by the serving table and saw lots of disappointed people. I believe she was the owner and she was not friends dly at all.

CarmelPosted Jun 4, 2016
Hotel is definitely tired and breakfast was pretty poor. Was okay for one night.

Dated but doable...Posted May 31, 2016
Cons: Update the rooms. They were terribly dated...
Location: All the restaurants, shops and beach were walking distance. Don't go to "Barmel" unless you're a frat, bro type of person...
Claiming that there was an "ocean view" was a stretch. Still, the room was slightly less than I would normally like to stay in when vacationing in a high end place like Carmel. The furniture, paint, carpet and bathroom were all dated- maybe mid to late 80s. On the plus side, it was walking distance to pretty much everywhere we wanted to go to in Carmel, and it was on the cheaper side considering the holiday weekend and last minute reservation.

Old and nicePosted May 30, 2016
From the furniture and facilities, one can tell that this hotel is relative old. Yet if you just want to stay for a night or so, and don't want to pay for a PRICEY rate, this is a good choice. The front desk is friendly. It takes a few minutes to walk to the beach, yet not too far, and I enjoyed walking along the main street.
