    Okay if you can get a good deal

    We found a great price for an overnight stay. We also brought our pup. I knew the room would likely be somewhat older and a bit run down based on the price ... and it was. However, it worked quite nicely for a spontaneous one night stay. I’m this definitely wouldn’t be in my top choices, but in a pinch for a good price it’s worth it.

    Walkable to town and beach, enjoy the view.

    Pleasant stay. Roomy space with view. The only thing that bothers is the noise from toilet in the night, not sure if the old pipes or someone use the water from next door.

    It’s bit outdated and room are small. Convenient location. Parking is limited. Our room was on the 1st floor facing the street. People park and stay by the car chatting at night others walking by chatting loudly so we couldn’t sleep. Maybe people in the inside rooms had better experience.

    I’m glad there was a little place like this in Carmel. Most rooms are $200+ for the location. It came with a fireplace and walking distance to everything you want for a little day vacation.
