Comfortable stay in great location
We we’re very happy with our stay. The room was a good size and very clean. The king bed was comfortable. The shower was hot with good pressure. Free parking on-site. Great location for exploring. Breakfast basket had enough fruit and snacks. Reception was kind to give us a basket the night before as we were leaving before 8am delivery. We’ve stayed at plenty of the Carmel inns at similar price point over the years and this was the best! We won’t hesitate to book again.

Very Good8.0
The stay was good. We were there for the AT&T Pro Am for 2 nights. We stay in Carmel because we love the ambiance of the area. Everything is within short walking distance. Great restaurants and shopping.

Worst bed ever
In 45 years of traveling we just experienced the worst bed ever! The springs on one side of the queen bed were so broken down that when you sat on the bed, the mattress squished down to the box springs. This was Room 311 so avoid that room if you book here. We had unpacked and went to bed about 11:30. I guess because of the Clarion reputation and standards we never even considered trying out the bed when we checked in. Since it was so late, we thought we could tough it out, but both us rolling downhill to one side was awful. My husband put every pillow in the room between the mattress and springs to make bed level. But it didn't help. I finally tried the sofa bed which was a twin and rock hard. We did report the mattress to the front desk, and the clerk apologized and said he would have changed our room. The rest of the room was ok, rather small but decent. Looked like an older motel that Clarion took over and tried to renovate. I would recommend trying somewhere else.

Bed creaked loudly when sitting or shifting weight - absolutely ridiculous. Arranged for massage at front desk for 4pm - masuesses arrived 3:40, we were not ready for them at that time. Actual massages were great. Overall, ok, not great, good for the price I guess
