    Nice Carmel location

    Finding the Clarion is difficult given all visible signage says Carmel Oak Inn & Suites. Manager on duty was quirky, but did accommodate our request for a ground floor room. Bed was very comfortable and good tips got us extra bath towels. Amenities are nice and the room had a small fridge and microwave. TV remote was difficult to figure out as were stations. Shower had low water pressure and our toilet had been installed so the top didn't fit and flush handle wasn't visible, but it was there. Only mirror was in the bathroom and both toilet paper and tissues were economy versions. Good hair dryer. Breakfast is one bag per room. First day it had 2 rolls, a banana, an apple and an energy bar. Second day was 2 rolls and 2 apples. Keep the bag for snacks and walk down to the Tuck Box for a good breakfast in a charming story book cottage.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Very disappointed

    Substandard hotel and definitely not worth the nightly cost. Poor condition and very dated. Small flat screen TV, very cheap and dated couch and chair. Also an incredibly small shower. Fingerprints were all on the microwave door; absolutely disgusting. We sanitized the room to be safe due to COVID concerns.

    The building outside looks old, but the room inside is impressed. Clean, king size bed, with sofa chairs coffee table and tv cabinet with a desk. Walking distance to the beach.

    This stay was bearable for the price, do not recommend staying here for they will try to charge you for damages you didn't do, hours afyer checkout. They tried stealing an additional $200 for damage (They said we damaged a 50 year old blanket). Unauthorized fradulent activity. Thanks to my bank we stopped it. Called corporate to complain and they did nothing about it. Not worth staying here, they are lying thieves!

    I would rate this place as average, since the room didn’t meet my reservation expectations: no fireplace, WiFi coverage weak and slow, and small room for comfort.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Expect very low quality and bad construction

    We arrived to the hotel, check in process was relatively normal, except we did not receive any type of copy of a receipt. We got two keys, only one worked after about 10 swipes. Whoever did the work on the room did very bad work on the moulding, painting, tile work, etc. Television wasn't working and it took me resetting the receiver to get anything (which took about 30 minutes), someone who isn't technology savvy might experience more frustration. My wife went to shower, and within minutes noticed the water wasn't draining... it immediately filled to the top of the base trim (about 4 inches) (picture attached). I called the emergency number and the person told me that I could come to the office at 8am to get a key to a new room. Also noticed that the water was running underneath the tile and rug and began spreading underneath the flooring in the living area. The tile wasn't wet, but the carpet in the room got soaked quickly. It took all night for the water to go down. I went to the office at 8 and no one was there. Had to call, and no one was there until around 8:45. He asked if I wanted to "move up" to a KING... sounding like it was an upgrade. It was not, a bigger bed BUT MUCH SMALLER ROOM. Again, all the work in this room was very amateur. Main light switch didn't work, door bolt wouldn't lock, and toilet was installed so close to the counter that the lid couldn't go on and the flush was under the cabinet. Cracks in the wall and mildew ALL OVER THE SHOWER. TERRIBLE EXP
