Comfortable, clean and conveniently located for exploring Big Sur, Carmel By The Sea and Monterey. Staff friendly and helpful with recommendations for restaurants. Balcony with sweet view of river and plants. Saw hummingbirds.

Friendly staff and best place to stay with dog in Carmel. Good location. Definitely, stay again! Nice building. Only bad thing is there is no door in the shower booth. Everything else was so good. Enjoyed!
