Cute little gem with ocean view. Although it is not exactly within the town of Carmel, it is close by enough that it was not a problem for me to visit the beach and the downtown area

Traveled with family
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The location of the property is near the beach, no ocean views from our room. The amenities are non existent and the hospitality is missing. Our room was old and in disrepair. The bed mattress was very uncomfortable and made my back hurt. You can not control the room temperature and it is set to hot. I definitely did not get any rest. Ants in the bedroom and bathroom. If you have any complaints, good luck because no one is around to hear them and far less, do anything about it. I do not recommend this place.
