Slightly disappointed
The hotel is in dire need of an upgrade, dark and not romantic! A lot of money for something so rundown. If I would have paid 25% less I would have thought that this was a good deal.

Basic hotel, great location, tricky to find
This is an older, family-run hotel with small rooms and Craftsman charm. Nothing fancy, but it's relatively affordable, surrounded by great shopping and only one block from the beach. It's a five minute walk to the Santa Monica Pier. There's coffee and pastries for breakfast, but there are many other places for a more substantial breakfast nearby. One quirk - the address is on Broadway but the entrance is around the corner on Second Street. There's no street-level signage on Broadway. My Lyft driver was literally right next to the hotel and knew it had to be there, and we couldn't see it. We went all the way around the block and spotted it the second time around. So if you're headed west on Broadway, just turn right onto Second and you'll be right there.

Great location, minimal amenities
Check in was very messy, but it was a very packed weekend due to a Frisbee tournament. I had booked 6 rooms and when booking them was told we would be blocked together, but when we got there they were all spread out. The front desk was patient and got it all sorted out, but by the time they finished with me the line was out the door for checking in (they only had one person checking people in). The rooms themselves were fine. Definitely an older building with the bare necessities in rooms, but that worked just fine for our purposes. And you absolutely can not beat the location for the price.

Basic Hotel in A+ location.
I was in Santa Monica for a conference and the conference site has booked-up. I found Hotel Carmel in a search and due its location and price made a reservation. Hotel Carmel is in an "A+" location, one block from the beach, one block from the 3rd Street Promenade, and right accross the street from a high-end shopping mall. The hotel is older, but they keep it up as best they can without running afoul of the city of Santa Monica. (the building is a "Historical Landmark") The staff was great, especially the valet parking attendants who split time with the bell staff. I would stay again.

Surprisingly a wonderful stay!
Stayed one night for a girls weekend. The staff from the valet, bellman and front desk staff was very friendly. The hotel is very vintage on the inside however the room was clean, the bed comfortable and the shower pressure AMAZING! We had a few instances where we needed someone to check on the light switch and eventually we told the bellman that we figured it out, the engineer was upstairs to check on us in 2 minutes. Since the room did not have a hair dryer, I called to the front desk and within 60 seconds, he was at our door. I was truly impressed by the prompt service that we received there. This is a family owned business who's location is second to none and valet parking is only $20! The only reason that I did not give this 5 stars was because it was older. However, I will tell you that this is probably one of the best experiences that I had in a hotel for service in a long time. You cannot beat the price, location and service. Remember that you are not there to hang out in the room all day...we will be back in January!
