Wonderful hotel

Posted Jun 4, 2017
Pros: The breakfast was great. Consider offering pancakes instead of waffles all the time
Cons: Better parking
Location: Needed a car if you wanted to see the 17 mile drive or the Big Sur Beach was an easy walk
This was a wonderful hotel and the staff were friendly and accommodating. The drawback was parking - did not know until we got there that there was only curbside parking in a residential area. Not that easy to find. Definitely needed to use your car or the shuttle to get to the town. Was a distance and very dark at night - which the staff warned us about.

Great hotel in a beautiful residential area.

Posted May 27, 2017
Pros: It's location, accommodating staff, pristine upkeep and quick walk to the beach.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Nice walk to great shops, restaurants and the beach. Quick access to the 17-mile drive and main highways.
This is my second stay here and as always it was great. The breakfast/brunch was incredible as well as the views of the ocean. Very accommodating staff. Nice touch for the wine tasting in the afternoon as well as the cookies at night. Great opportunity to meet new people in the lobby area. Would highly recommend this to anyone going to Carmel...you won't regret it!

Great historic hotel in a great location...

Posted May 3, 2017
This hotel is a beautiful historic building and in a great location. The rooms are a bit small and can get warm because there is no AC but it's nice and cool and night so the rooms cool down quickly with the windows open... the buffet breakfast is very good...

Well located versus both beach and town.

Posted Apr 13, 2017
Pros: Classic style and friendly staff
Cons: Was some construction noise during the day... wish this could have been avoided.
Great breakfast and lovely grounds. Had a room with a patio which was great for just sitting and relaxing with a glass of wine and a book.

Hotel was very clean and nice...fantastic view!

It was very nice esp. the room and hotel and close access to all that is Carmel. One problem was the difficulty getting around at night while walking which we prefer to do. Very dark and bad sidewalks, etc.
