Location!
Was recommended to stay here by friends, but was told it was not as great as it used to be. That said, the location was fantastic, the staff was excellent. The accommodations were great, could use some updating, but comfy bed, and great room size. With some minor updates, would be FANTASTIC. Would definitely go back.

Colonial Terrace visit
We were told we had to change rooms just the day before our arrival: however this was handled very carefully by the staff without any problems. While at the hotel, we discovered the hotel was closing for a year with effect of that week. The staff were absolutely lovely but terribly upset since it would appear they hadn't been given much notice of this happening. All in all, it will be interesting to see what the hotel is like after one year of renovations!!!

The grounds and gardens were very well maintained. From the outside, Colonial Terrace is charming. The front desk woman was very welcoming and kind. The room itself was disappointing. Very outdated, no heat (except for a fireplace on a timer), bath tub was slow to drain during showers, light bulbs were out, and sink water smelled like rotten eggs. It was definitely overpriced for the amenities. No view of the beach but only a few minutes walk.

1 1/2 blocks from the beach and a few more to the center! Perfect location and peaceful part of Carmel. The room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast served in our room. Windows open to hear the waves. Pleasant check in, we arrived early and our room was ready. Great place, thankful a friend had told us about it! Will do the same!
