    Clean and spacious but slightly odd smell

    Room was clean and spacious and appeared to have been recently re painted. There was a slightly odd smell to the room as mentioned in previous reviews but I think this was due to the sea air? A little disappointed that having booked the room for 4 including 2 teenage kids we had to make up one of the beds but overall a nice enough place.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Tired room and bad condition of bathroom. Noisy rooms due to thin walls, car park at the window and hearing other guests up and down stairs late at night and early in the morning. Very expensive for the condition.

    Convenient stopover

    Very comfortable and conveniently located. The Inn could possibly do with a little TLC but generally very good. Breakfast was pretty good too.

    Great location

    Great location, very clean and easy checkin. The only downside was doors slamming late at night and room was "loved". Needs a little update.

    The hotel is beautiful hidden gem in Carmel by the sea. It's definitely a place with history. We enjoyed our stay and would most likely return if the opportunity arose.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Forget this place.

    I ended up staying somewhere else, since the hotel abruptly cancelled my reservation on the day of my trip and check in. How unconscionable can you be!! Bear in mind, the reservation was booked the previous month, in May, well in advance of the check in date of June 16th. I will never stay in a hotel like this one ever in the future, it defies comprehension what they did and they sabotaged half of the first day of my trip. This I can never get back!! Shame on them!! If I hadn't checked my email on the morning of my trip, I would have gotten there only find out that I don't have a place to stay and would have been completely screwed.
