    The hotel was LOVELY!! The only problem was that the restaurant was closed during our stay. I was hoping to enjoy their fine dining experience.

    This has been the best place we have stayed at in Carmel by the sea. The service was above and beyond. The rooms were spacious, comfortable, and quiet. And the breakfast was much better than the usual continental breakfasts offered at hotels. I can’t wait to go back!

    Great Stay

    Service was outstanding with everyone very helpful and reall nice. Breakfast was included and was delicious. Rooms #22 and #24 have very narrow, steep stairs. If you have mobility issues, ask for a room on the first floor. There are still stairs up to all rooms, including first floor rooms.

    Great location

    The location is superb, however the rooms need updating. If the weather is warm the lack of air flow was a bit tough to take Service was very good. The manager and Josh specifically were wonderful.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Room 26 is small, stuffy and up a steep set of stairs. Not attractive and certainly a poor value.

    Romantic hideaway for couple

    Romantic stay in Carmel. Feel like we were in a French countryside. Best to pack light because there’s no elevator for upstairs. The restaurant closed on Monday and Tuesday so not ideal for short stay.
