La Playa Carmel, Carmel
Nice hotel but overpriced and needs a refurb
A nice hotel but needs an upgrade based on what they charge. They need to also place trash cans around the hotel, very inconvenient for guests.

Hidden Gem in Carmel.
We loved this hotel. I lived in Carmel for many years and never knew this hotel existed. It is quintessential Carmel. The gardens, pool and views are amazing. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Easy walking distance to downtown and the beach.

Very Good8.0
Nice getaway!
This hotel is great for a getaway. It’s located in a quiet location enough to hear the waves from the beach. The hot breakfast is good also, it’s not your typical continental breakfast. Overall, good hotel!
