For a weekend getaway, I had hoped a much better hotel with nice services for such a high price. The whole complex is like a renovated motel with nice rooms at the edge of the Carmel. Breakfast is minimal continental. But the staff were pleasant and the place is quiet.

Loved this spot. Great location, rooms updated with very good bedding, and very well appointed. We needed a pulll out couch for our daughter, so this was perfect. Next time will stay on 2nd floor so as not to hear the guest in the room above, but besides that, it was a wonderful stay

We stayed at the hideaway for one night and it was fantastic! The rooms are small but amazing and you don't feel cramped at all! It is very romantic and cozy. We were so impressed by the staff and the entire experience. We wanted to stay another night!!! I would highly recommend staying here. Loved everything about it!!

Great little place in the heart of Carmel! Friendly and accommodating staff. Beds that allow for deep sleep! Great breakfast included. Blocks from the beach for a nice morning run after your restful sleep! A great place to recharge!

Enjoyable clean and spacious rooms Friendly staff Nice open common room area to sit for breakfast and wine / cheese afternoon Quiet area No off-street parking but no problems parking on street, could be more difficult on a weekend Great location - one block to main plaza Given price of accommodation in Carmel, this is decent value for money

Much the same, much different. No more on-site parking. Better wines and cheeses at happy hour. Similar breakfast fare. Rooms lack storage and have a strange bathroom/closet set-up. As always, the front desk staff is exceptional

Terrific location, street parking is plentiful, and the rooms are clean and very comfortable. The place has an upscale feel, and the breakfast is a bit limited, but good. Only issue---and this is minor--is that noise from people talking on the sofa in the courtyard permeates into the rooms. Also, a treadmill or two would be nice.

Our first stay at the Hideaway and enjoyed it very much. Extremely comfortable bed. Loved the breakfast, wine & cheese hour, and reception area for lounging. It was too cold outside, but there is a very nice patio seating area and fire-pit. The rates are, in my opinion, very pricey, yet on par with Carmel hotels. We were able to...
