Very Good 8.0
Charming but noisy...
This hotel is charming and perfectly situated next to the walkable Carmel village. Our room and bathroom were great! The only issue was that our room was located in the courtyard and the outdoor music could be heard from inside our room from 9am - 10pm. We could also hear a lot of other guests.

Poor 2.0
Location is good, for the price that we paid, it wasn’t worth it. Won’t be back

Cute and cozy with a fireplace
Cute hotel with comfortable beds and a fireplace in the room. Complimentary Nespresso machine in the room was the best coffee to be found in Carmel--we tried 3-4 different coffee houses and all the coffee was weak. It was quiet during our stay except for the morning we left. We were on the second floor and we could hear the first floor people banging around getting ready to leave. Also, you have to carry luggage up the stairs to the second floor. The outdoor hot tub was very popular though we didn't try it out ourselves. The hotel is 3 blocks from the main street, Ocean Ave, which has shops and restaurants.

Cozy stay
Wonderful property that is in the perfect proximity to Carmel-by-the-Sea downtown. There are a number of very cozy areas to enjoy chatting with family /friends. Property is in good condition. The only down side is that the walls appear to be a bit thin and so you will likely hear the conversations of people walking in / near your room.
