Charming boutique hotel perfectly located.

Posted Jul 10, 2017
Pros: Elegantly charming. Old world European charm with modern amenities. Friendly staff. Delicious food.
Cons: Can't think of anything.
Location: Blocks from the beach, shopping & restaurants. Short drive to Monterey, Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach, Big Sur & Carmel Valley (lovely wineries).
From check in to check out, we had a lovely stay. The hotel fits perfectly in Carmel as it is elegant, quaint and charming - just like so many of the homes and shops there. Our room overlooked the property's beautiful courtyard which is filled with flowers, well-kept landscaping, and a number of areas with tables, sofas and chairs for guests to enjoy coffee, a glass of wine or just to take in the beauty of the surroundings. The hotel staff is so friendly and helpful - always smiling and asking how they can be of service. The breakfast that was included with the room rate was delicious, filling and a perfect way to start the day. The Nespresso machine in our room was a much-appreciated amenity. Our room was bright and airy with comfortable chairs to relax and read in and the bed was quite comfortable as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to returning someday.

Expensive & Underwhelming.

Posted Jul 6, 2017
This was the most disappointing of hotels, given the price and the hype. It's old, tired and SO expensive. The bellman accepted our tip before we were told that an additional hefty daily fee to cover tips would be added to our room charge. He should have politely declined it as it would've been the classy thing to do - especially at a hotel of this "elegance." The included Breakfast offered eggs, toast, and coffee/tea. We had expected something unique and gourmet. A cappuccino was offered... for an additional cost. I guess a cappuccino is just too much to ask. Hmm. We won't be back. Save your money.

Great, as usual.

Great, as always, but heating system was noisy. A bit overpriced, perhaps.

Wonderful stay in Carmel

L'Auberge is a real gem! The staff is very professional and at your beckon call. Even when challenged with a morning power outage in all of Carmel, they found a way to have uninterrupted breakfast service.

Carmel Weekend

Posted Feb 10, 2017 on Orbitz
Pros: Staff. Location. Old World charm.
Cons: Breakfast was disappointing.
Attentive staff. Many nice touches (cookies with turn-down). Unsurprisingly, not a business traveler destination (no desk or ample computer outlets). Breakfast was disappointing (eggs appeared microwaved) , and we actually went to a nearby restaurant - La Bicyclette- in lieu of the included breakfast on our second day. Hotel location is central and charming, although courtyard can amplify sound.
