Our Second Stay in Carmel
I selected the Vagabond's House because it had the highest rating on Hotels.Com. The service was excellent; breakfast very good, and the room was immaculate. Only complaints: A bit noisy with people climbing stairs outside our window; parking was not too convenient, and the queen bed too small for the two of us. Overall, an excellent stay.
