Beautiful Historic Hotel
Enjoyed our first stay in Carmel and very happy with our choice of hotels. It's an old building and that's what we get but we loved it.

Beautiful property
We stayed one night for our anniversary and everything was fantastic. The staff is wonderful and accomodating. They surprised us with a bottle of sparkling wine in our room and that was such a lovely gesture. We will definitely return when we need a quick weekend at the coast.

Lovely little resort
This is a wonderful place to stay in Carmel if you truly want to relax. The gardens are beautiful and there are plenty of spots, including by the swimming pool, to slow down and take a break from the shops and crowds in town. It is a small walk to the center of town, but there is a shuttle available in the afternoon/evening if you don’t feel like walking. Parking is provided free of charge, although there is a daily resort fee. The breakfast is delicious with everything you could want, plus champagne! The staff was friendly and service was right on point. The bar is a nice spot to grab a pre or post dinner drink and they also serve snacks if you don’t feel like going out to dinner. Our room was small, but very comfortable, and we had a view of the ocean. Overall, it was a great value and we would definitely return.

Nice Getaway Destination
La Playa is a lovely place to stay in Carmel. Quick walk to various in town activities and to the beach. My only nitpick is that we found mold in breakfast strawberries. Not acceptable in this price class. Reason for taking out a star.
