Pampered guests
We were pampered with breakfast in bed, cream sherry and a fire, and fresh fruit.

Very Good 8.0
Wonderful stay
Very good once again. Second year we’ve stayed here. Great service. Need more towels in rooms. No coffee in rooms but Quinn, the front desk manager, got us a small Mr Coffee and other items so we were set. Above and beyond! However at this price point shouldn’t be a. Issue. Otherwise great place well located in wonderful spot, Carmel by the sea.

My husband and I stayed here last week. The staff was so kind and accommodating. The courtyard is beautiful and the room was very charming and clean. It’s a lovely place to stay in Carmel!

Highly recommend
Totally charming little hotel. The only caveat is: you are apt to hear conversations from people who are sitting outside in the patio. That said, it didn't bother me. Randall was a great host. Nice to have Netflix in the room.
